Speech｜Understanding Bitcoin from the "Information-World" Perspective
The analogy between "maps" and "territory" highlights the disparities between memes(thoughts, ideas, information) and reality. In the context of Bitcoin, the map is the territory. Bitcoin is the information, starting from the creation of blocks, and gradually and progressively shapes its own reality through ongoing operations, culminating in a consensus ledge. The fact that Bitcoin timechain serves as the most precise historical record firmly establishes Bitcoin's position as the cornerstone of our future.

Onchain > Web3
Drawing inspiration from the Free Software movement of the 90s, this article reflects on the meaning of the term "onchain" in an attempt to break through the negative connotations built by past Web3 and crypto projects. Despite the ambiguity, the author advocates keeping "onchain" as it remains practical and non-abstract. Much like "open-source software," these terms are based on technical architecture; software is either open-source or not, and an object is either on-chain or not.
Looking Ahead: Lightning Payments in 2025
Lightning Network in 2023 is facing challenges tied to the widespread use of custodial wallets, stemming from issues, such as user agency, technical knowledge, and limitations. The author proposes solutions to enhance the Lightning Network user experience, including channel splicing, elevating Lightning Service Providers' role, enabling independent payment receipt, standardizing privacy as a Lightning Network feature, and introducing payment refund periods to support e-commerce. The author further predicts that channel splicing will become a common feature in most Lightning wallets in the near future.
Codex32: A Shamir Secret Sharing Scheme
Codex32, a Shamir secret sharing scheme, is introduced as a new method for manually generating, checksumming, and splitting a BIP32 seed phrase. The author believes that using pen and paper for calculations offers several advantages, such as the ability to create random data transparently with user-defined timeframes for each step. As long as the instructions are written somewhere and securely stored, the process remains compatible. With Codex32, users can create and verify checksums for their data to validate device integrity, split and back up secret values, and recover or initialize a new wallet.
