Can we have a bitcoin thread?

I have been meaning to donate to this website for some time now and came to conclusion that bitcoin offers best privacy while doing so.

https://bitcoin.org/en/
https://bitcoin.org/en/getting-started
https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

I have been reading up on it and was wondering if anyone here uses bitcoin and which wallet are you using?

I am liking the idea of having offline cold storage on my olderlaptop for more security so I am considering getting "Armory" wallet.

it's all to get people to accept the new central bank token they are cooking up, once they come out with it they won't allow bitcoin to exist and if they can't kill it completely they will make it illegal to use or tax the SHIT out of you if you do

I want to love silver, I really do. but they won't let it spike in price like they will other stuff, silver is in the 20ish dollar range, the same as it was in 2008, you have lost money to inflation owning it because aside from a few big spikes here and there it trades flat for decades at a time

A tech I keep preciously for an eventual SHTF situation and alternate ways of communication outside internet remains radio, IDK how many others have like, a Retevis or a Baofeng, but I'm glad to have these small, handled talkies.

I have a thing for that UV-K5, the reception range makes it more a scanner than just a talkie, especially with hacked firmware, which is starting to be a thing now, plus the radio is under 20 bucks on ali.

So basically as long as I use the radio under 2W it's legal?
What do you think about other packet-radio protocols such as LoRaWAN(proprietary) or DASH7(more open)? AMPRNet requires one to register ones callsign to optain an IP address so that falls mostly out of the question.

LoRa is pretty cool pretty sure anything over HAM requires a callsign in the U.S. Someone should really challenge that in court.

yes that's the big idea, of having a wireless, long distance network to at least exchange text and some jpeg with the adequate protocol, mostly x.25 or maybe even IP addressing as if it was a 56K modem behind. then it's a story of bandwidth, we had to make one like this in EE college as part of the test, that was a loong time ago. Now you can find ardunios for almost nothing.

>>3239
it depends so much on the regions, here the anfr allows the 446MHz PMR for free with 18channels but at 0,5w and iirc, 466 in the US/canada so if you go with a boofwang and stay mobile away, don't get caught transmitting above one watt, and if really all coms are down, jump on the VHF/ham frequencies as a last resort, scan the frequencies, listen and ask politely, it's not /b/. don't saturate things unless they are the enemy, then you can plug in some mp3 player and rickroll away.

>>3241
the whole thing about transmission should be covered by free speech, and i wish we had some free VHF channels to transmit on, this is more useful than just having a kilometre range of transmission with the 446.

Biopunk

No.3243
The cyborgs, sentient AI, directed energy weapons, and robots envisioned by cyberpunk have not yet materialized. Meanwhile gene editing, biohackers, synthetic biology, chimeras, designer drugs, plasma clinics, nootropics, and ridiculously expensive healthcare all exist right now. We don't live in a cyberpunk novel, we live in a biopunk world. How is this genere less popular?

Honestly? I think cyberpunk is engaging because it demonstrates the more fantastic and excessive grit encountered in dystopia. I think that if the anxiety pertaining to mass surveillance, rogue AI, urban sprawl and cybernetic cognitohazards aren't compelling in their own right, it's the nostalgic imagery and retro-futurism that endears an audience to its trappings.

As far as biopunk is concerned, I'd think that all but the most invested cast it aside much like they would dieselpunk and the other disparately related settings. Even steampunk appears to have been in decline, in spite of having some mainstream presence 12 or so years ago.

I think that despite advances in genetic engineering, people would prefer more grotesque imagery like body horror. John Carpenter and David Cronenberg seem more ingrained in the public consciousness than works exploring gene manipulation and biology-warping drugs. That being written, do you know any biopunk novels worth reading?

Pulling from a list of topics user generated and randomly selected.

It's been done before in a paper from Google and Stanford. With AI agents with memory going around doing human like stuff.
More sophisticated only by a few extra steps and lacking the Text To Speech.

I wouldn't be surprised if a standalone application or game like Garry's Mod or SFM or something similar appears.

Jewgle and all of them would probably use this technology to model people even more.

Exactly. It's what we get for offshoring all of our manufacturing. We currently have 1%-2% of global ship building capacity. China has 50%. There are arguments to be made about quality control, but with that vast gap, it doesn't matter.
When technology is phased out or neglected, expertise and infrastructure required to produce, repair, or redesign it atrophies.

Aircraft manufacturing is already cratering. You may have noticed stories about a number of factory fresh Boeing airliners undergoing spontaneous disassembly in midair. It seems like at Boeing ESG scores and DEI trump people not dying, so they're hiring illiterate IQ-55 crackhead niggers straight out of prison cells and then making the surprised Pikachu face when Dayshawn and Rastus show up high and drill the holes in the wrong places, causing doors to fall off, engines to burst into flames, and worse. No one's died yet. Airline passengers and crew probably aren't going to stay this lucky forever. And when this causes several hundred people to get turned into lumpy red applesauce some morning, I can assure you that nobody from Boeing's C-suite is going to get arrested for manslaughter, self-evident depraved indifference to human life notwithstanding.

AMD and Intel drop a lot of work in because they need the server systems to work on their crap. IBM now owns redhat so you can combine those two pie slices. Valve is a relatively new one to the open source world and is putting a fairly considerable amount of money to developing the linux ecosystem, mostly because they don't want to pay homage to microsoft or sony as a gaming platform. Lots of other "smaller" companies will pay to have certain things fixed in the linux kernel because it affects their niche server-side plugin to [whateverthefuk]

Governments world wide are making it more expensive to live, so of course there is less people working on it "for free".

Monocultures are an issue with design not implementation. Open standards and FOSS means anything can be adapted for anything

Linux is just a kernel, applying the tool analogy, it's like your power drill and dremel using the same battery brand. It has an open adapter, so you could easily switch to a different brand, but it's the best battery around, so why would you? But, if you were to use this other brand with it's proprietary adapter, you'd have to use their batteries forever

Using 50 different proprietary technologies means you're 100% locked in, using only 1 open technology means you're completely free
