  • describes recent changes to services and client software
  • includes fifth post in the series about preparing for taproot: why wallets should wait before generating taproot addresses:

If it was guaranteed that there wouldn’t be a reorganization of the block chain, it would be safe to start generating addresses for P2TR as soon as the final pre-taproot block was seen (block 709,631). But there’s reason to be concerned about block chain reorgs—not just accidental reorgs but also those deliberately created to take money from early P2TR payments.
