    The capacity of the Lightning Network has now reached 2,738 BTC. In just the last week we've seen the two largest daily upticks in LN capacity ever. This growth is crucial for BTC to eventually make the transition from primarily being a store of value to a medium of exchange.

    How tyranny is built. A lesson for the globe
    Don’t allow your mind to be usurped by negative thoughts. The mind is its own place, and in itself. It can allow us to perceive a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. Beliefs are filters for the reality we perceive. Stay positive and let your attitude guide you.
    Censorship is a tool used to control the filters of those below the ruling class.

    While inflation might be transitory; the loss of your purchasing power is likely permanent in a fiat world. You need BTC more than you realize

    my timing was a little off l:(
  8. In Sweden after daily new infections rates had dramatically declined near the end of May 2021, vaccination rollout began. By Sept 2021 over 50% of the population were fully vaccinations; during this time new infections grew, but not significantly.

    The question is – why are their (Sweden’s) outcomes so different from Israel’s?

    Sweden “lockdown” policy – Is there a correlation?

    In the US, you need to buy bitcoin before your dollars are useless. El Salvador has solved this. We’re roughly halfway between “buy bitcoin to get rich,” and “buy bitcoin to survive hyperinflation/deflation.”

    Black Monday: The Stock Market Crash of 1987?
    October 19, 1987.
    Dow Jones Industrial Average falls (22.6%), making it the highest one-day drop by percentage in the index's history,
    When that day comes, it would be a good idea to have some powder left for some last minutes of bitcoin purchasing.
    It looks like in 1987 there was a month or more time to do that purchase.

    @Jack Kruse any idea on how low it may go this time?

    A very good friend sent me this today ^ with a report on the Debt Ceiling/ Yellen situation, and a question:

    "Why doesn't the US just raise the ceiling an print more like always?"

  14. https://www.reuters.com/world/china/china-energy-crunch-triggers-alarm-pleas-more-coal-2021-09-28/
    With electricity shortages sparked by coal shortages crippling large sections for the developed world corporations & industries, the governor of Jilin province, one of the hardest hit in the world's no.2 economy, called for a surge in coal imports, while a power company association said supply was being expanded "at any cost".​

    However, China’s CCP Nuclear generation goal is to reach 70GW by 2025.

    The upcoming five-year plan states that at the end of 2020, Chinese nuclear capacity reached 51GW. This fell short of the country’s 58GW target, but it has set a new target for 70GW of generation before 2025.

    In January, the China National Nuclear Corporation began commercial operations at its first Hualong One reactor. This reactor design is the first developed in China and, according to Reuters, industry officials have suggested construction of at least six new nuclear units per year in order to take advantage of economies of scale.

    Luo Qi, a member of China’s Atomic Energy Research Initiative, wrote: “By 2035, nuclear plants in operation should reach around 180GW, amounting to 5% of total capacity.”​


    China launched its molten-salt reactor programme in 2011.
    These reactors are among the “perfect technologies” for helping China to achieve its goal of zero carbon emissions by around 2050, says energy modeller Jiang Kejun at the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission in Beijing.​

    Nuclear power in the United States
    Nuclear power in the United States is provided by 93 commercial reactors with a net capacity of 95.5 gigawatts, with 62 pressurized water reactors and 31 boiling water reactors. In 2019, they produced a total of 809.41 terawatt-hours of electricity, which accounted for 20% of the nation's total electric energy generation.

  17. How do we encourage the US to move toward thorium-fuelled nuclear reaction?

    As of 2020, approximately 2,200 gigawatts of electric power generation capacity had been installed in China.

    As of February 2021, America has approximately 1.2 million megawatts of generation capacity.
    As of now
