In episode 34 @AaronvanW and I explain Erlay (mempool set reconciliation) and how it relates to those moon base iris scans we all use:

The Van Wirdum Sjorsnado now accepts your sats! Breez just released a quick fix to make it play nicely with c-lightning (and the lightning spec).

Just search for "van" in the Podcast tab.

We seem to be one of few (haha) podcasts that actually use the new RSS tags to announce a node. Not even @adam does that afaik :-) Most other podcasts use a workaround like

Are there any other players I should test?

@dave @adam I added a podcast:value and podcast:valueRecipient tag to my RSS feed. How long should it take for the indexer to pick it up? It would be nice to have a command line tool to validate these new tags.

Yes! It's that time in the quarter where my certbot cronjob screws up again and my instance goes down... back!

external signer support merged into bitcoin! Makes it easier for your bitcoin node to sign bitcoin transactions with hardware wallets. going to test this with HWI next chance I get. would be cool to get it working with trezorctl directly as well.

the following merges accounts have been added:

- @guimerges merges to the bitcoin core GUI repository
- @secp256k1merges merges to the secp256k1 library
- @hwimerges merges to hardware wallet interface
- @miscmerges for merges to various other bitcoin core repositories

In episode 25 @AaronvanW and I explain bloom filters (BIP 37) and compact block filters (BIP 157/158) and discuss light wallets vs a full node in general: (cc @bitcoinmagazine)

get the bitcoin whitepaper directly from the utxoset. This works on a pruned node:

seq 0 947 | (while read -r n; do bitcoin-cli gettxout 54e48e5f5c656b26c3bca14a8c95aa583d07ebe84dde3b7dd4a78f4e4186e713 $n | jq -r '.scriptPubKey.asm' | awk '{ print $2 $3 $4 }'; done) | tr -d '\n' | cut -c 17-368600 | xxd -r -p > bitcoin-test.pdf

In episode 24 @AaronvanW and I browse through the Bitcoin Core v0.21 release notes and reminisce about earlier episodes... (cc @bitcoinmagazine)

Awesome post @orionwl. Completely agree with the thinking and thankful it isn't a leaving message. Sense of dread at the beginning. 😅

If you run a full node, you already have the whitepaper. @jimmysong wrote a really nice Python script that lets you extract from the blockchain (ht: puchu on Github).
