Re: I’m Kristov Atlas, Co-Founder of the OBPP. Ask me anything!

Hrm, interesting. As a privacy advocate my self, I recognize the value of privacy, but have struggled to define and justify it. Fungibility seems to me a a pretty powerful argument, but you have a point that evidence for what happens to a currency when its fungibility is broken is not easy to find. ...

Re: I’m Kristov Atlas, Co-Founder of the OBPP. Ask me anything!

Ok, here's another one. There seems to be a clear conflict between KYC and AML compliance, two anti-privacy compliance processes that banks and dentralized financial institutions are subject to. And The need to privacy in Bitcoin for reasons of fungibility. Aka, all money needs to be equal, and KYC ...

How NOT to build and Orwellian Reputation System

Reputation is such an essential part of human interaction that it is easy to take for granted. It can simply be looked at as a way of knowing ahead of time the character and capabilities of another person, with whom we might want to trade or interact with in some way. Being able to reasonably predic...

Re: Privacy.Bitcoin.com is coming soon!

We have made very big progress in implementing BIP47 payment codes (stealth addresses for SPV/mobile) and you will all be seeing them in an upcoming version of Samourai Wallet.

Re: Bitcoin.com now has a Canary Warrant page!

I was thinking about this recently, since a dev from one of the communities I hang around vanished without warning and we know nothing about him or how to contact him, scary stuff. While the above is a good start, the problem of course is that this whole approach is centralized. If you got a gag ord...
