🇺🇸 US Gov Cashing in Silk Road

The US government sent a transaction that appears to indicate it may be on the verge of liquidating the remaining Bitcoin it confiscated from the online marketplace Silk Road.

According to on-chain data, a 0.001 BTC test transaction, part of a larger stash of approximately 30,174 BTC linked to the infamous Silk Road was moved.

🎥 The Bitcoin Era

This is a presentation from January this year which we came across this week. It’s extremely well-presented and structured. It’s relatable and simple.

A great tool to add to your arsenal of resources for new people looking to find out more about Bitcoin.


⚡️ Lightning Comes To Coinbase

Coinbase is partnering with Lightspark to integrate Bitcoin Lightning… eventually. Aiming to enable faster, cheaper transactions for its 100 million+ users. This move led by former PayPal president and now Lightspark Founder David Marcus, will shift more transactions to Bitcoin's second layer.

Joe Hall is due a referral bonus from David Marcus after his interactions with Brian last year.
