Bitcoin privacy defenders. Samourai community discussion

This episode is from a live recording I did with Samourai (Samourai wallet) Zelko (Ronin Dojo) and the community following a discussion we had on a recent podcast about the release of Sentinel, a watch only wallet created by Samourai wallet. 

We decided to do a follow up and open the discussion to listeners who had questions or feedback and it was a great success. I know from personal experience that the world of Bitcoin privacy and security can be daunting and frustrating at times. We want to help people use the best tools available to actually use bitcoin. Having these open discussions really helps dispel myths and encourage use. 

Its always good to have these conversations with people who stand for freedom and refuse to bend the knee. We will be running another podcast and open discusion again next month and we would love to hear from you.

Here’s the link to the original episode for those who missed it and show notes bellow. 

Sentinel is an open source watch only wallet that allows users to track offline, cold storage, and paper wallets without needing private keys. Users of sentinel can keep an eye on all balances and transactions as well as generating receive addresses without exposing private keys or reducing security. Your offline bitcoin wallet may eventually need to send a transaction, now you don’t have to compromise the security of your offline wallet by bringing it online, you can Use Sentinel to maintain the air gap.

Samourai gave us the history of sentinel and where its going in the future and Zelko helped me understand the interaction between RoninDojo and sentinel, why its so seamless and fast. Ive been testing it over the past week and it is blazing fast as well as incredibly simple to use. Im enjoying the layout and being able to track all balances in one place. 

As is to be expected this is bitcoin software that is built to be used without revealing your identity or information that could leave you vulnerable to attacks. Native Tor integration, PSBTs, simple Dojo pairing and generating receive addresses from all tracked wallets are just some of the many incredible features.

We are going to be running a spaces around a week after this episode goes live and would love to hear from you. If you have questions or feedback please join the conversation. I will announce the date and time in the next few days.
