I wonder how many new people install the official bitcoin wallet and get discourage because of how long it takes to synchronize. There should be an official light client version of the wallet for less advanced.

[OC] Which front offices and agents are the 3 major newsbreakers connected to? I went through 6000+ tweets to find out!

If this sounds somewhat familiar, that's because I did a 2019-2020 version and posted it back in March.
In terms of changes from that post:
TL;DR
Tracked tweets of Woj, Shams and Haynes from 2018-2020 to see whether any of them report on a certain team or a certain agent's players more than their counterparts. Here is the main graph concerning a reporter's percentage of tweets per team separated into three periods (2019 season, 2020 offseason, 2020 season). Here is a separate graph with the Lakers and Warriors, because Haynes's percentages would skew the first graph.

During times like the NBA trade deadline or the lifting of the NBA free-agency moratorium, it’s not uncommon to see Twitter replies to (or Reddit comments about) star reporters reference their performance relative to others.
Woj is the preeminent scoop hound, but he is also notorious for writing hit pieces on LeBron (sources say it’s been widely rumoured that the reason for these is that Woj has always been unable to place a reliable source in LeBron’s camp). On the other end of the spectrum, it has been revealed that in exchange for exclusive intel on league memos and Pistons dealings, Woj wrote puff pieces on then-GM Joe Dumars (see above Kevin Draper link). Last summer, Woj was accused of being a Clippers shill on this very discussion board for noticeably driving the Kawhi Leonard free agency conversation towards the team.
This is the reason I undertook this project: to see whether some reporters have more sources in certain teams (and certain agencies) than other reporters.
First I’ll explain the methodology, then present the data with some initial comments.

Methodology

To make this manageable on myself, I limited myself to tracking the 3 major national reporters: Shams Charania of the Athletic, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and the aforementioned Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The time period I initially tracked for was from January 1, 2020 to the end of the regular season March, but after finding a Twitter scraping tool on GitHub called Twint, I was able to easily retrieve all tweets since September 27, 2018. However, a month ago, Twitter closed their old API endpoints, and Twint ceased to work. I used vicinitas.io but the data loading became more time-consuming. Therefore, the tweets are up to the date of October 15 2020.
How I determined information was by manually parsing text tweets by the reporter (no retweets):
Now, I didn’t take every single text tweet:
Next, I had to assign possible teams to each tweet:
With all the methodology out of the way, here’s the data! (Here’s a link to a full Google Sheet)

Teams

Here's a graph of number of tweets per team per period, with the colours denoting reporter.
On a quick glance, here's which teams saw a significant period-over-period increase in number of tweets:
And here's which teams saw decreases over a period-by-period basis:
The problem with just using number of tweets is that it's not close on totals between Haynes vs. Woj or Shams. Here's a graph showing total number of tweets in each period for all three reporters. Haynes's most reported period doesn't even stack up to the least reported period of Woj or Shams.
Instead, let's look at percentage of tweets per team per period.
Now, you'll notice that there's two teams missing from the above graph: the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers. Here's the graphs for those two teams. As you can see, they would skew the previous graph far too much. During the 2019 NBA season, 27% of Chris Haynes's qualifying tweets could be possibly linked to the Warriors, and 14% of his qualifying tweets could be possibly linked to the Lakers.

Agents

Here's the top 10 agents in terms of number of potential tweets concerning their clients.
Agent Haynes Shams Woj Total
Rich Paul 15 28 24 67
Mark Bartelstein 4 16 30 50
Jeff Schwartz 3 10 25 38
Bill Duffy 2 13 14 29
Leon Rose 1 12 15 28
Aaron Mintz 2 9 15 26
Juan Perez 5 10 8 23
Aaron Goodwin 11 8 1 20
Steven Heumann 1 6 12 19
Sam Permut 1 13 5 19
Woj has the most tweets directly connected to agents by far. It wasn't uncommon to see "Player X signs deal with Team Y, Agent Z of Agency F tells ESPN." The agents that go to Woj (and some of their top clients):
One thing I found very intriguing: 15/16 of tweets concerning an Aaron Turner client were reported on by Shams. Turner is the head of Verus Basketball, whose clients include Terry Rozier, Victor Oladipo and Kevin Knox. Shams also reported more than 50% of news relating to clients of Sam Permut of Roc Nation. Permut is the current agent of Kyrie Irving, after Irving fired Jeff Wechsler near the beginning of the 2019 offseason. Permut also reps the Morris brothers and Trey Burke.
As for Chris Haynes, he doesn't really do much agent news (at least not at the level of Woj and Shams). However, he reported more than 50% of news relating to clients of Aaron Goodwin of Goodwin Sports Management, who reps Damian Lillard and DeMar DeRozan.
Here are the top 10 free agents from Forbes, along with their agent and who I predict will be the first/only one to break the news.
Player Agent Most Likely Reporter
Anthony Davis Rich Paul Too close to call, leaning Shams
Brandon Ingram Jeff Schwartz Woj
DeMar DeRozan Aaron Goodwin Haynes
Fred VanVleet Brian Jungreis Limited data
Andre Drummond Jeff Schwartz Woj
Montrezl Harrell Rich Paul Too close to call, leaning Shams
Gordon Hayward Mark Bartelstein Woj
Danilo Gallinari Michael Tellem Woj
Bogdan Bogdanovic Alexander Raskovic, Jason Ranne Limited data, but part of Wasserman, whose players are predominantly reported on by Woj
Davis Bertans Arturs Kalnitis Limited data
Thanks for reading! As always with this type of work, human error is not completely eliminated. If you think a tweet was mistakenly removed, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll try to explain my thought process on that specific tweet! Hope y’all enjoyed the research!

Mac Bitcoin Core official client (node) question

Might be a really silly one, but where can i set the drive that the blockchain should be stored on? It's nowhere in the preferences.
Keep in mind, most MacBooks have SSD's with 256GB being rather popular. There ought to be the ability to use ones mac for SOMETHING else besides hold like blockchain, shouldn't there?
Sorry for asking such a silly question, but really, all I need to know is how to tell Core to download the chain to and use the chain from a location that's no on my SSD.
Thanks!

The official bitshares client will be able to send and receive bitcoin from next week! Decentralized bitcoin hedging is here!

I've heard from a bitshares core dev that the shapeshift API will be integrated directly in the official bitshares full node possibly as early as next week, and will also be included in the light wallet (still in beta). This is huge for both bitcoin and bitshares!
This means that you can now use BitShares as a decentralized hedged bitcoin wallet. You can receive bitcoins from an exchange or from your friends, and hold it in bitUSD, and then send it out again to a bitpay integrated merchant, or lighthouse, or a bitcoin debit card or wherever else you want. All done exactly the same way as you send bitcoins normally using normal bitcoin addresses, except that while you hold the bitcoins they are hedged against volatility so if you send in 100 USD worth of bitcoin you will be able to send out 100 USD worth of bitcoin as well at any point in the future. All this is done without counterparty risk, you hold your own private keys at all times, and you need zero AML, zero anti-terrorism anal probes, and there's no way your money can be seized or frozen - just like bitcoin was always meant to be.
It's this kind of feature that is going to make bitcoin go mainstream. If anyone can hold and use bitcoins without having to worry about volatility we will begin to see an increasing amount of people shifting their money into crypto. As bitcoin is the onramp and offramp for all cryptocurrency, and is the payment rails on which cryptocurrency will be spent, the more money that goes into crypto as a whole the more bitcoin benefits. Bitcoin is already the most convenient way to spend your money in the whole world, with the addition of decentralized volatility hedging by consumers there's no reason why all commerce shouldn't go through the bitcoin network. BitUSD itself will never be a threat to bitcoin as a payments system. No merchant is ever going to accept BitUSD since it's so much easier to accept bitcoin since it has all the infrastructure and enables you to accept bitUSD as well, so bitcoin and bitUSD will never have to compete, but can instead grow side by side.
I know there's still going to be plenty of people who insists that bitUSD is a shitcoin and is useless for anything, but i hope some people will be able to realize that it is something that complements bitcoin rather than competes with it, since it will never be able to match the branding and network effect of bitcoin, but can help with consumer adoption.
As the USD starts to seriously tank it will also be possible to hedge your bitcoins to other assets, such as gold (using bitgold), so until bitcoin itself has become big enough to remove volatility there will be plenty of options to enable people to use it without volatility concerns.
The BitShares ecosystem also has a lot more to offer bitcoin as well. Bitshares has blockchain registered names that are compatible with bitcoin addresses (because bitshares uses the same type of private keys as bitcoin), so in the future we might be able to send bitcoins to human readable names instead of incomprehensible public keys, another important step that will help with mainstream adoption.
Another thing are the paid delegates. Bitshares' "miners" get paid a salary in order to improve and develop the system and blockchain. But as bitshares begins to have more money at the disposal of delegates this method of funding can also begin to benefit bitcoin (since bitcoin adoption and merchant acceptance benefits bitshares directly). Instead of having the bitcoin foundation controlling the bitcoin core developers, some of the core developers could be bitshares delegates and be funded in a completely decentralized manner in order to protect and grow both ecosystems. If the cryptocurrency space (and thus also bitshares) grows enough to afford it we could also see things like lighthouse delegates that use their delegate pay to support open source lighthouse projects that benefits both ecosystems - systems like bitsquare are the future for all cryptocurrencies and it is important they are well funded if we are to succeed.
Finally there's the decentralized exchange itself, which is what BitShares was always meant to be (the whole concept was in fact conceived by the lead dev after mtgox had its funds seized in 2013). It's still not widely used, but bitshares has a bitasset for bitcoin as well, called bitBTC. With BitBTC you can trade the price of BTC and USD directly on the blockchain without any sort of counterparty risk, and as soon as you want real bitcoin again you can convert them instantly through a gateway like meta-exchange or shapeshift (if they add bitBTC in the future). The hope is that one day all bitcoin trade can be done entirely without centralized institutions, making the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem completely immune from ben lawsky and regulatory crackdown.
One last thing before someone calls me out on it, regarding the counterparty risk. Since shapeshift has momentary control of your funds it isn't actually completely free from counterparty risk, however the risk is greatly reduced from other systems like coinbase, bitstamp or paypal that just hold all your funds outright. The worst shapeshift can do is to steal the volume they process over a period of time until the community is alerted. Because the payoff is so low you can be guaranteed it will never happen (assuming they seek profit). Lets assume they take 0.1% fees and will be able to steal 1 hours worth of volume before people stop sending them money (there will likely be automatic alert systems in the wallets making the time significantly less). This means that they will at best be able to steal 40 days worth of income, but lose all future income as a result. It should be obvious that this will never be worth it, especially considering the fixed costs they have put into establishing the business.
