Since the "pings" and "presses" aren't time-stamped but use the "7 months ago" and "1 week ago" title, then the "offchain bitcoin transactions" should be time-stamped. Hard to figure out what the time-stamp is on a powping transction when it's not accurate and no easy way for a layman to check it. So timestamp something: either use False-Return (not permanent, but timestamps it for a little while), or provide a timestamp in the Planaria transaction, or or use a more exact timestamp in the p

What I love about having CSW available to quickly answer questions on Metanet.icu, is you could spend weeks asking other highly-informed people to answer a tough BitCoin question like "would sub-satoshi BitCoins ever be allowed? There seems to be a quote alluding to this possibility". In typical CSW fashion, he can answer it in record time with as little words as possible and it makes perfect sense as only the inventor could answer so effortlessly.

We live in interesting times, and news like this should make ALL political factions think that single-source databases like AWS will remain a danger to your business or application. My apps will take a harder look at which databases we use, and actively look to partner with BSV-databases in the future, and I'm quite appreciative that BitCoin is coming at the right time to deliver it's robust multi-Node solutions. Call that decentralization if you like, I"ll just call it safe business practice.

Why spending time shorting stocks is such a massive drain on your performance; try to find the peak of the Nasdaq on this chart, prior to the Real Estate & Banking collapse!

About 85 days in a row of BSV blocks > btc blocks. And this chart doesn't do it justice, as btc is the denominator in pretty much all cryptocurrency trading platforms; whereas, BSV has none of that action (but someday fiats-on-token solutions).

“There’s a commodity value to BitCoin WHEN IT’S USED CORRECTLY: 1. it is the value of putting information into the ledger. 2. It is the value of exchanging quickly.... It’s actually USE. As it’s used, a commodity has value”— CSW, @theoryofbitcoin -whitepaper He goes on to explain the equivalence of gold having USE (he mentions one of its smaller uses— as an ingredient to electronics). This explanation is the very basis of BSV’s value and arguably we will be able to value BitCoin in many

Gold derives it's value from the cost of work to get it out of the ground and refined. But why mine it at all? Because gold is used for certain things which will not be returned to the above-ground gold pool. These certain things MADE with gold have a value FAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR higher than the price of the gold used to make them. Here is a picture of one of them.

Token Panel quite useful. According to @ryanxcharles 's handy defining of "layers" of tokenization methodology... Layer 0 token: Tokens using satoshis (BSV tokens) themselves as tokens. Layer 1 token: Tokens which use BitCoin scripting language inside BSV tokens to implement the tokenization. Layer 2 token: Tokens OFF-chain. EDITORIAL COMMENT: My opinion? Tokens will be safest when attached to actual BSV tokens-- aka tokens should have a definitive "PAR" value associated with BSV tokens th
