I sent the 100k sats last episode with BitcoinErrorLog. Keep up the good guests.
what is that block explore Paul likes? yoog.io? But great conversation! I think BIP300/301 is an attack on altcoins. I would pay sats to see Paul and John Carvalho chat about these ideas.
Drivechain is an attack on Bitcoin
Paul and John had a debate at Baltic Honeybadger 2022. The video is on their YouTube channel.
BIP 300/301 should be taken more seriously by the bitcoin community.
