I just want to say how happy it makes me that people on both sides are doing responsible disclosure of critical vulnerabilities. This works out better for EVERYONE.

Both sides of the camp very vehemently disagree with each other and say incredibly unkind things to each other and treat each other very poorly, but I can't even express how happy it makes me that at the end of the day people realize that it is in everyone's best interest to look out for one another. Cory Fields pointed out in his write up that no matter what he thinks about bitcoin cash it is in his and the project he has an affinity for's best interest to responsibly disclose bugs to them because in the future it may turn out to be the case that someone on the other side will have information about a critical vulnerability that he would like to have responsibly disclosed as well. Fast forward to today and here we are. A critical vulnerability was found in bitcoin core and it was indeed responsibly disclosed to them and not kept hidden or sold or exploited.

I don't think I can even express how important this is for both bitcoin cash and bitcoin core. I really hope this continues into the future or we are going to be headed in the direction of an inevitable disaster.

Thank you so much to both cory fields and awemany for setting such a precident on both sides. I hope this continues to be the case into the future.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

I just tried the Bisq exchange…

…and holy cow, does it work beautifully.

I just made my first trade without any problems whatsoever. The setup was very fast due to the fact that there is no KYC bullshit or anything like that. I just created an account with my banking information and bam, made my first decentralized BTC exchange. It runs stable and the UI seems to be bug free, which stands in stark contrast to the piece of cabbage that is the kraken.com website (their support is amazing though I must say).

And even though there are not so many active offers there at a time (today was great actually, since it was Bisq September Market Kick-Start Day), I'm not worried at all that this is in fact the future of trading crypto. Try it if you haven't!

My appreciation goes out to all contributors. Well done everybody. Smashed the dono <3
