Do you have or know of a really cool _story_ to share of something good that would have been impossible without Podcasting 2.0? I'd love to share it on my return episode of The Audacity to Podcast.

Wallet advice? Blue Wallet

I'm just curious about any advice regarding BTC wallets, and more specifically, Blue Wallet.

When I started in crypto, I bought/traded a bunch of coins, so used Coinomi. It has been pretty, but I'm getting my sister into BTC and I've gone nearly all BTC now.

So, I was thinking Coinomi might not be the best for her (BTC only), and maybe I should switch as well, so I can provide tech-support better.

Any Blue Wallet gotchas I need to know?

I should also note... I'm on a Mac/iOS devices (as my sister is as well). I'm running the latest OS versions, but she's pre-Mojave on the Mac. I guess that rules out Blue Wallet there, but she'd probably be OK using her iPad or phone anyway.

If you aren't building your content on a platform you control, maybe read this first:

Question: If you boost and something goes wrong (ex: not enough liquidity, other issues, etc.), does it just fail as if it hadn't happened? Or, do you lose Sats?
I'm assuming the former, but thought I'd ask. :)

One of reasons I love overcast podcast player app, I don’t think any other podcast player app can do it (if yes, let me know!):

I can upload my own audio files (like audio tracks extracted from YouTube or like MP3 of unpublished yet podcast to review before publication) and then I can use all features of overcast app including shortening silences and voice boost during playback:

@adam @dave Had a chance to more thoroughly review my website changes? I would love to see it launched so we can start building on top of it. And I'm confident it will help more people understand and rally support for Podcasting 2.0.

My bitcoinmachine finally arrived. Umbrel inside. Cute box, dead simple setup. I'm going to de it for lnurl experimentation. TIL how to install letsencrypt and reverse proxy.

This kind of device is now a category. Start9.com is another similar system. Need to get helipad in there as well ;-)

A bit OT, but am I understanding correctly that Lightning anonymizes the funding path? If so, Lightning + Podcasting 2.0 style value distribution would make one heck of a crowd-funding platform in light of recent events.

BTW, I didn't mean... waiting on an accountant who knows all the tax codes. I just mean, what are you guys doing in this regard, or is anyone else thinking about it. :)

I'm looking for some input on tax implications of funding podcasts (or other stuff) via Sats.

I've started investing and mining crypto, and the tax situation looks fairly complex. But, since I can easily track each transaction and know start/end value, etc. it is manageable.

But, when you start buying BTC to put in a wallet and sending to podcasts, the complexity to track goes way up, right? And, if I tell my audience to do that, would many of them even be aware of the tax issues?
