Satoshi Nakamoto built in defenses against quantum computing attacks – If you use one Bitcoin address one time, then your ECDSA public key is only ever revealed at the one time that you spend bitcoins sent to each address. A quantum computer would need to be to break your key in that short time.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

satoshi labs (maker of trezor wallet) controls 5% of the lightning network capacity. Hail to the king!

Get a trezor and control your keys, so you will be ready when lightning use is widespread and bitcoin's value has gone up by another order of magnitude.

Satoshi labs is killing it. Control of private keys is the backbone of bitcon's value proposition, and they and other hardware wallet manufacturer's make it easy. But trezor was first and best, so hail to the king!

Nothing special. Just Satoshi Nakamoto casually forecasting what a stupid idea Bcash would be in 2010…

"If the second version screwed up, the user experience would reflect badly on both, although it would at least reinforce to users the importance of staying with the official version. If someone was getting ready to fork a second version, I would have to air a lot of disclaimers about the risks of using a minority version. This is a design where the majority version wins if there's any disagreement, and that can be pretty ugly for the minority version[…]."
