New Script language overlay for Bitcoin - Hello min.scCreating scripts for Bitcoin is not easy by default. In my opinion this language doesn't resemble anything popular at all. And this dependency was noticed by many people trying to improve and simplify the scripting by creating different kinds of translators. First, there was the Miniscript project, which changed a lot in this matter by simplifying syntax and adding (or facilitating) the implementation of many useful functions. Now min.sc goes one step further by "opening" the language to the average programmer. At the bottom you have two codes. On the left is pure Script, on the right Min.sc. Of course if you don't know any programming languages then you don't understand any code, but I know PHP (So quite a low shelf of programmers :P) As such I read the one on the right. Objectively looking at this code on the right reminds me of PHP, and this is a plus for me :P

On August 1, we celebrated Bitcoin Independence Day. It is a situation in which various people wanting to take over the network, making it impossible to activate Segwit, and then activating it "on condition" that the size of the block increases. The attack failed ;)
It's worth remembering this day, especially when a new Soft Fork is being prepared, which is pushing Bitcoin forward again, while attackers may not want to activate it.
First tranche of the Infinite Fleet collected
Samson is "lucky." The fundraising campaign announced at BnkToTheFuture was successful, providing him with 255,000 dollars. In return, investors will receive a token in the Liquid network allowing them to earn dividends from the game. Infinite Fleet is to be a powerful MMO game set in space. The only thing that comes to my mind is EVE Online. But what makes me happy is the high quality (presented) audiovisual setting.
Lightning Network Summary
Youtube channel - Bitcoin for Beginners decided to sum up 2 quarters of Lightning's development. Of course, the film is about realized things and adoptions.
