I'm very interested in Bitcoin and like your newsletter.

But please stay away from bashing other chains. Just focus on BTC. That is what you guys are good at.

The debate around OFAC tx is complicated and nuanced. No need to 'score' some points with a quick screenshot from MEV watch, which doesn't paint the whole picture.


And I am writing this while also thinking this is bad. Just don't think it will do the quality of LN Markets' newsletter any good.

https://www.inclusion.watch/ informative website to play around with for instance.

With 99.95% OFAC compliance it would still only take 5 minutes to get a non compliant transaction through.

Hey, thanks for your valuable comment, appreciated!

Indeed, we usually only focus on BTC here, and that's what we prefer.

In this post, we wanted to write on our mission: build self-custodial trading on top of Bitcoin.

And since we often hear the question: on Bitcoin, why not Ethereum?

We felt we needed to address that.

So it was not particularly bashing Ethereum or other chains, just stating why we build on Bitcoin.

Discussing other chains won't become an habit here.

Feedback appreciated!

All the best
