03/Jan/2019 Bitcoin users on brink of second bailout for exchanges

The time has come for us to test what we have created. Trust in numbers yet we trust in exchanges, in people, in corporations.

On the 3rd of January 2019, 10 years on, let us all have withdrawn our BTC to wallets we control. Let's see if it is all there, let us see who fails, let us see the network work.

We lose nothing, we risk nothing, those companies and exchanges that cannot be trusted will be exposed.

We must assert control, we must prove this is ours.

We need a time to coordinate, 16:00 UTC 03/Jan/2019 is as good as any other. By this hour let us have concluded our transactions and hold our coins in our wallets.

04/Jan/2019 we return to business as usual, with renewed confidence.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

The story of Hal Finney, an extraordinary cryptographic activist (main contributor to PGP), and his idea of “Reusable Proofs Of Work”. He was also one of the first Bitcoin users (downloading Bitcoin on the day it was released), receiving the first Bitcoin transaction ever from Satoshi him/herself!

If you have recently received a very small amount of BTC in your wallet unexpectedly, you may be the target of a “dusting attack” designed to deanonymise you by linking your inputs together – Samourai users can mark this utxo as “Do Not Spend” to nip the attack in the bud.
