Back from hiatus, Bitcoin doesn't care + more projects to come
Taking a break is sometimes the smartest move.
Things got hectic in 2022 and I had to go heads down on building and solving problems rather than writing and sharing online.
I’m back and been spending more time on Bitcoin Twitter and it’s still so exciting to me. Lots of new developments. M&As in the mining space and still Bitcoin doesn’t care and just keeps doing what it was intended to do.
I’m working on some new projects and hope to sink a new S19J Pro miner into one of Fog Hashing’s C1 immersion tanks.
More on that soon.

For now, here’s a round up of what I’ve been reading and learning on Bitcoin recently.
Nikola Tesla, 3,6,9 and it’s connection to Bitcoin
Great thread by Bitcoin Culture exploring the connections between Tesla and the creation of Bitcoin.
The 4th Turning
This is a interesting thread, especially if you’ve not learned much about the 4th Turning Prophecy.
The author has a new book called ''The Fourth Turning Has Arrived'' and it promises to be just as prophetic as Howe's two books from the 1990s.
Luke wrote a great thread on the 4th Turning & how Bitcoin fits into it.
I enjoyed going down this rabbit hole.
8 Bitcoin Circular economies you should follow on Twitter
A bitcoin circular economy is a system in which users don’t have to exchange their bitcoin for any other asset in order to purchase goods or services.
They trade and transact in bitcoin and don’t need to exchange it for any fiat or other currency.
Here are 8 to follow on Twitter.

Bitcoin Bank Project
All this research into bitcoin circular economies lead me back to a project I looked at last year called Galoy.io.
This project intrigued me a lot so i’m going to try and setup a Bitcoin bank using the Galoy open source project.
More to come on that as I’m just in the process of learning and setting up a server to try this out.
Hope you are well.
See you on Twitter.
