 Oh hell naw. I wouldn't be impressed with that at all. https://c.tenor.com/Qrss0JhtMMUAAAAC/tenor.gif

 I would be fine with a bunny 😍 
 I find myself using both halvening and halving. It's just how it do. Sorry.

 WHICH!?

 Haha. Accurate.

 I'm compensating for the rewards loss.

 Danstr / OnlyDans needs to exist and it's just notes from people named Dan.

 It's not too late to start that hashtag. 
 GM and happy halving day!

 PV Jeff! Happy Halving Day! 
 Tonight be all like: https://i.nostr.build/Aa9xG.jpg

 Only one way to make it climactic. Work hard. 
▲ ▼
 We should advocate for that. 
 I remember seeing Ron Paul "it's halvening" GIFs on Reddit for the first halvening. I hope they come back. 
 Halvening party tonight. Meetup tomorrow morning.

Have fun out there! 
▲ ▼
 Looking forward to the party 🎉 
 I think I have a crush on a Bitcoiness... 
 Due to the impending Bitcoin halving, the amount of Nostr notes about Bitcoin have now doubled to compensate. I don't make the rules. (No one does. Nostr is an open protocol.)

 Who said anything about a price?

 Guys I’m updating my node software.

 GM PV 🤙🏻

 I was planning on doing one and have one scheduled, but due to the time of the halving drastically moving forward over the last week, I will no longer be able to do a Nest during the halving as I'll be at a party when it happens.  
▲ ▼
 Then math had failed us. 
▲ ▼
 GM PV 🤙🏻 
 Plebs, plez I'm going to need some recommendations for a good whisky to celebrate this "harving" 
▲ ▼
 I don't do liquor, but my man @ralf or @Brad S can help here. 
▲ ▼
 Good morning and pura vida, Nostr! It's time to create notes and send zaps! 💜🤙🏻🫂

HAPPY HALVING DAY!

 We should! A Halvingathon! I'm going to be driving to a halving party so I don't know how much I'll be able to do. I'll do a few zaps when I get there around 5:30pm ET. 
▲ ▼
 PV 🤙🏻 
▲ ▼
 GM sir. It's almost time 🤙🏻💜🫂 
▲ ▼
 Awesome. Technically me too. Enjoy! 
▲ ▼
 Maybe?

 Nostr empowers you to be social how you want to be social on the Internet. And if it doesn't, that just means that developers haven't built the tools for you yet. They will. Give them motivation and give them time. 

Goodnight and wabi sabi, Nostr! 🫂🤙🏻💜

 Mara is up to no good. Expect bullshit if they get the halving block. https://i.nostr.build/0jew9.jpg 
▲ ▼
 First having with #Nostr is already awesome. It's like we're pre-gaming for the party right now.  
▲ ▼
 It's going to be an epic Zapathon too

 This is a good feature 😁

▲ ▼
 😂 @fiatjaf should post that in solidarity with Bitcoin he will be cutting the note rates in half. 
▲ ▼
 #grownostr will be taking a brief hiatus. The next 24 hours will include a lot of #Bitcoin content.  
▲ ▼
 Moar Nostr content! 
▲ ▼
 The purple pill helps the orange pill go down. 
▲ ▼
 Going to be jamming to @FreeFrom Official 𓅦's don't all day to get hyped for both Bitcoin and Nostr. 
▲ ▼
 It's an open protocol 😂

 It isn't abandoned. I've just been working on some other stuff over the last 2 months. Happy to a...

 Tweeting the word retard each day until I get shadow banned

 You could make your own client and ban yourself from using it right now. Don't hold back.

 I'm slowly starting to come around to ecash. We just need the UX to get better and I can foresee this working and helping a lot of people.

 I hate that aspect of it, but I understand that need to use it in very specific ways - get in and get out. You never have sats in a mint more than a few minutes.

 The in 2028 Satoshi will probably roll out Bitcoin Home Premium Plus.

 If you wanted to use Primal's built in wallet, but weren't a fan of the KYC, allegedly you could enter Costa Rica or El Salvador as your country and it would work just fine 👀

 Perfect

 Mixtape is great if you haven't listened to this series yet. Highly recommend if you want some new tunes.

 Hmm. Odd. She's using Alby. I was able to zap her from my normal wallet. So, Alby isn't down. I would assume Primal/ Strike has no issues with Alby since they're a large provider. Maybe one of them had a temporary issue?
