Join the Conversation: Bitcoin Developer Mailing List Moves to Google Groups

    The Bitcoin developer community has announced the migration of their mailing list to Google Groups. Moderators Ruben Somsen, Bryan Bishop, and Warren Togami have made the decision to move the mailing list from its previous hosts,, Linux Foundation, and OSUOSL, to Google Groups.

    According to Bitcoin developer Bryan Bishop, the migration is a necessary step for the growth and efficiency of the community. “The bitcoin-dev mailing list has migrated from where it was originally hosted, to Linux Foundation, to OSUOSL, and now it is migrating to Google Groups,” he stated.

    Subscribers to the old mailing list are advised to take action promptly, as emails to the old list will no longer be accepted after February 2024. The new mailing list can be accessed here.

    For those who have not received the invitation or prefer to subscribe manually, alternative options are available. These include email subscription or online interface registration using a Google account. “If you missed the invite and want to subscribe manually you have two options,” the announcement stated. “You can send an email to [email protected] and then send a reply to the automated email you’ll receive (check your spam folder). Alternatively, you can also subscribe through the online interface at using a Google account (not the same as gmail – you can create a Google account with any email address you like).”

    The announcement also highlights the importance of staying opted in to receive all messages, in order to facilitate active participation and maintain continuity in conversations. This ensures that replies are properly threaded together.

    The migration also guarantees the preservation and accessibility of archived mailing list contents, with backups available externally. The old mailing list can be viewed without a Google account. It is important to note that the moderators “aren’t relying on Google for anything critical here and are merely using them as a conduit for information that is already meant to be public.”

    The mailing list moderators also want to remind participants to make sure posts are relevant to everyone, in order to maintain a good signal-to-noise ratio. The mailing list rules, which remain unchanged, can be found here. The moderators can be reached at [email protected].
