00:03:10 Welcome and start of stream (with audio issues)
00:05:00 Audio issues fixed! Start of stream again.
00:06:45 I am interested in multisig wallets but communicating instructions to my heirs how to restore that without compromising my security seems 10x more complicated than a basic passphrase wallet & seedphrase. Can you talk about DIY multisig [Ace]
00:11:20 How do hardware wallet random number generators work? How can we trust that a future backdoor won’t be found that allows a hacker to predict seed phrases created by that secure element and then steal coins? Is there a guarantee that wallet devs can’t read & store the seed while I make the backup? [Ace]
00:18:45 Checking in with the chat
00:19:26 Technical difficulties and addressing things
00:20.55 Andreas is back and not in "mom’s basement"
00:22:41 I just read that Coinbase has cut off 25K Russian Wallets over allegations they’re engaged In "suspicious and illicit activity." Maybe soon they’ll start on other "sanctioned individuals." How do we live without the exchanges?
00:30:55 Now that Wasabi started to work with regulators and engage a chain analysis company – what are the easy to use tools that we can use to protect our privacy while using Bitcoin? Samourai wallet? [Anita]
00:37:41 Can you explain what WEB3 is in simple terms?
00:43:18 Thank you to our sponsors – Patreon
00:48:18 Can you explain what DAO is? Or what it means? Many coins have it in their name now, and it also seems to have a meaning that I can’t quite grasp. I’m not understanding how it’s being used in relation to cryptocurrency.
00:52:49 What is Merged Mining? What are possible applications? [Giovanni]
00:54:47 Could a Certificate of Deposit system ever work in crypto?
00:57:41 Can you fly a chopper? [Amsterdam Holland]
00:59:14 Could you merge mine ethereum classic and bitcoin or do they have to be the same algorithm [Mike Brown]
00:59:55 How private are Lightning network channels that remain open indefinitely? Can Chainanalysis get any access? What role could URLs play in compromising privacy? [CryptoLiberty]
01:04:42 what are the best metrics to gauge increase in user adoption of btc? is it just the number of recent addresses with small amounts of sats? how do you separate new addresses with small amounts on them from change addresses from wallets
01:10:43 Would you recommend your book to absolute Lightning noobs or it’s better to first learn the basics and tinker a bit in advance?
01:13:27 Could you please explain the difference between interoperability between blockchains with Lightning Network and interoperability with Atomic Swaps? [Amsterdam Holland]
