The Sat Standard - Dec 24 2022

Thought of the week from Marty Bent:‌‌‌
Don’t store or backup any information that grants you access to your bitcoin online. If you use a mobile wallet only keep an amount of sats on it that you are willing to lose. If you have a material amount of bitcoin you should seriously consider cold storage with backups being written in steel or in a notebook that is properly secured.

Thought of the week from ODELL:
Merry Christmas!

LastPass was compromised. If you use it to store your passwords you should change the important ones ASAP and move to a self hosted alternative going forward: bitwarden, keepass, or a paper notebook.
