Is there an in-depth place with full documentation of the entire bitcoin protocol and client specifications?

I’m working to create a clone mostly just to learn about blockchain and I had a few questions about how consensus is made about what transactions should be in the next block and how people efficiently share node IP addresses in a decentralized way.
If anyone has the answers to any of these it would be really great and if not I’m willing to read some documentation. Thanks!

About to order 1st blotter. Specific Qs about: 1cP-LSD & Psilocybin, ADHD protocol, how micro? & Bitcoin.

Hi everyone
I've been lurking, reading posts on this board and the 1P_LSD & psilocybin boards with interest for about a month now. Read all the wikis and so on as well - very helpful thanks. Hoping not to ask anything answered elsewhere.
I have 6 questions. I'm a detailed kind of person (until I get bored 😂) so if you find that annoying I've done a TL:DR at the end. 😬
Also If you're only replying to one Q, can you number it, as it'll really help my ADHD brain. 🤗
I"m about to start microdosing next week (have never taken anything before other than one toke of a spliff as a student years ago) and I'd love to have your advice on a few things, as while excited, I'm a bit jittery alongside.
1: My purchase
I've identified a supplier and due to my location, I have to buy 1cP-LSD (no-one is posting 1p-LSD to my country rn) . This consignment is coming from Germany. Looking at the price scaling I am opting for 150 tabs of 100µg as this is very much the most cost-effective way of buying it from this store - also, The Law as to which country can export what to where keep changing, and there could come a point fairly soon where I can't get it at all without moving to another country - hence the largeish purchase.
Maths is not my strong point - I’ve tried to work this out several times and I think this rather hilariously means I'll end up with (assuming 7.5-10 µg, 2-3 x/wk following Fadiman’s protocol) 12 years worth of dosage?! 😳
So, have I worked that out right because I've stared at it so many times I can no longer tell if I'm right or a curiously-shaped turnip at this stage...
2: Expiry/quality/degradation
If I've calculated the above correctly, will the quality of the tabs deteriorate over that time? I can’t seem to find any information about shelf-life here on reddit! Like I'm buying packets of effing tea or smth... 😂🙄
I’m aware I should keep them in the cool/dark/away from moisture - I plan on keeping them in my larder in an airtight box (potentially even vacuum sealing them - I thought that that might negate any oxidation - what do you think?). I also plan to dose volumetrically in vodka, so could make up several bottles ready, maybe?
3: Tandem-dosing with ADHD meds
I have ADHD. I’m aware I shouldn’t take ADHD meds (Vyvanse/Elvanse depending on where you live) on the same day as a microdose of LSD can magnify the effects of ADD meds (which I'm already quite responsive to). Does that mean I could experiment by taking a smaller ADHD dose on the second day when there's a tailing off of the 1cP-LSD and then back to a full ADHD dose on the third day, or should I have a day during the week that is entirely drug-of-any-kind-free? Interested to hear from ADHDers.
I've already reduced my ADHD meds as I wasn't sleeping very well and it made me hyperfocus right into the night, which I didn’t think was healthy so I’ve titrated myself down to a lower dose - about 20mg.
Essentially I’m quite sensible about it and certainly not aiming to be reckless - that said I want to get a really positive experience from microdosing and I don’t want to kind of scare myself by having a bad reaction just through not having planned it well enough, which is why I'm here consulting you – the experienced/experts.
4: Tandem-dosing with psilocybin?
I'm also interested in potentially tandem-dosing 1cP-LSD and Psilocybin. I've heard that some people have done this and I wondered if there was a standard protocol for people who want to each dose day, take one to relax and wind down, and one to focus and feel slightly more up about the world - slightly more kind of open/creative/productive?
5: How micro is micro?
I’m mindful of not having too high a 1cP-LSD microdose because - as well as 1cP being stronger than 1P - taking ADHD meds at a higher dose (50-70mg) made me quite jittery and hyperfocused (alongside some positive effects) so am aware 1cP-LSD might do the same if I don't monitor it closely. I’m interested to see if I can create a tailored personal stack, so I'd love to know: –
Is it possible to take a v small microdose of 1cP-LSD in the morning – for me maybe 5-7.5 µg and then because it wears off after 8-10 hours, to take a (very small) microdose of Psilocybin that same evening, to see if that would help me feel more relaxed ready for a decent night‘s sleep.
Has anyone else done this successfully, or would you not recommend? If so what would you recommend? 🤔
I'm likening it to my current habit of taking CBDs Sativa (am) and Indica (pm) - on the same day.
What I’m aiming to do is to get the balance right, while not turning into Elvis Presley in an uppers-and-downers kind of arrangement - which obviously is suboptimal, and I simply can't afford the expensive sandwich habit, tbh. 😳
6: Bitcoin payment- urk! 🤪
This payee - while reputable it seems - only accepts Bitcoin unless you have a German bank account. I'm a bit nervous about paying with Bitcoin for the first time - I’ve never used it before for anything -any tips or things I should or shouldn’t do through the process? Be very grateful for your advice, so as I don't make a stupid/expensive mistake.

TL; DR
1 - Have I calculated my purchase correctly?
2 - Will it last that long or deteriorate before I can use it?
3 - Best way to fit 1cP-LSD around ADHD meds?
4 - Can I carefully co-pilot 1cP-LSD alongside psilocybin on the same day to get focused followed by. relaxed response?
5 - How micro can I go to facilitate a smooth/gentle up and relaxed down?
6 - Bitcoin - who he?

Thanks everyone if you made it this far! Look forward to reading your replies - I want to learn.
If you're only replying to one Q, can you number it as it'll really help my ADHD brain. 🤗

Lets talk about the infamous IRS tax guidance PDF and capital gains regarding exchanging one virtual currency protocol like bitcoin for another virtual currency protocol like ethereum SPECIFICALLY.

Lets talk about the infamous IRS tax guidance PDF and capital gains regarding exchanging one virtual currency protocol like bitcoin for another virtual currency protocol like ethereum SPECIFICALLY.
https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-virtual-currency-guidance See PDF link Notice 2014-21. Q&A 6 and 7.
This comes up so often i am going to have to make some sort of general paste.
Lets start with the webpage and notice what it DOESNT say:
The notice provides that virtual currency is treated as property for U.S. federal tax purposes. General tax principles that apply to property transactions apply to transactions using virtual currency. Among other things, this means that:
Wages paid to employees using virtual currency are taxable to the employee, must be reported by an employer on a Form W-2, and are subject to federal income tax withholding and payroll taxes.
Payments using virtual currency made to independent contractors and other service providers are taxable and self-employment tax rules generally apply. >Normally, payers must issue Form 1099.
The character of gain or loss from the sale or exchange of virtual currency depends on whether the virtual currency is a capital asset in the hands of the taxpayer.
A payment made using virtual currency is subject to information reporting to the same extent as any other payment made in property.
End quote.
Please note while it says the exchange of virtual currencies is taxable and then gives examples of the exchange of virtusl currencies for things or work or fiat or OTHER PROPERTY it does NOT say the exchange of virtual currencies for other virtual currencies is taxable and it never gives an example of that case.
They could have said that but they didnt.
The guidance is instead spending time and examples talking about the exchange/sale of virtual currencies for work or for retail goods or business capital goods. (my guess is they were talking about when a store lets you buy something with crypto which was a big new thing then)
Also in the PDF Examples (which i cant cut and paste) they also do not give a "virtual currencies exchanged for virtual currency" example. Clearly if they meant it was taxable they would have given an example because it would have been one of the largest sources of taxes. For example they never say "if you bought bitcoin at this date and exchanged it for ethereum at this date then here is how you calulate gains." Again the lack of that example is strange if they think you owe taxes on virtual currency to virtual currency exchanges because it would be one of the most common cases covered by the guidance. Certainly more common than being paid for work in crypto which they do give an example of.
But they didnt.
Everyone reading it into the guidance is not actually relying on what the guidance actually says.
They are assuming the guidance meant something none of the IRS lawyers actually said Thise lawyers no doubt spent weeks writing it and proof reading it. Dont you think if those lawyers meant it to say " virtual currency to virtual currency exchanges are taxable "then they would have clesrly said that and given an example?
And none of this has anything to do with like kind exchanges. You dont need a like kind exchange tax exemption if they havent made a law or given guidance saying something is taxable to begin with so the often cited 2018 like kind exchange change is irrelevant.
Now a lot of people are throwing around cpa advise here whuch i havent actually ever seen. The recent AMA cpas only said "most people think". That isnt an opinion. that's an admission thst they arent sure and they wont say.
So here are some questions for your cpa or any cpa
If they say "pratically every CPA" says this
What about the CPA'S that dont ssy its taxable?
And why do you think "pratically every cpa" thinks that? Have you seen a poll? Whereis tust coming from. Have you asked one who doesnt? Why not choose the logic of the one who doesnt? Why not use the rational of one who doesnt? Some CPA'S are better than others.
Ask a cpa where is it EXPLICITLY stated in any IRS guidance or congressional legislation that you owe capital gains if exchanging one virtual currency FOR ANOTHER VIRTUAL CURRENCY?
Have you asked the cpa if they know that switching crypto isnt switching anything but computer protocols?
Have you asked them if they know the little pictures of bitcoins arent of real coins and that crypto coins dont exist or arent a ledger of actual coins or anything else anywhere at all but is actual simply pure computer communications protocol like TCP/IP or html?
Most people including cpa's have no idea what particpating in blockchain protocol actually is. Its not their fault. Its complicated computer expertise snd most people have no idea. They think of the pictures of littles coins they see. Those dont actually exist.
Have you asked them why they dont think you owe capital gains when reading one page of info in html and anothe rin javascript?
I'm not being a smartass.
Those are serious questions i would ask any cpa who tells you you owe capital gians specifically on the "exchange of one virtual currency for another virtual currency" when youn ever sold to cash. That specific exchange which is in actual fact simply an exchange of one computer communication protocol for another as i said.
I would actually love to hear the answer anyone gets from their cpa on those SPECIFIC questions
NOT on general "property" arguments and not on extrapolation of the term exchange in the guidance.
And not of course on like kind which i am not currently talking about.
Disclaimer. I am not a cpa or tax advisor or your advisor or a lawyer. These are my personal opinions just like everyones elses)
And none of this is about a taxprotest or any such nonsense. I am always happy to pay taxes i owe.
If tomorrow the irs says "you need to pay taxes if you exchanged virtual currency for virtual currency then you need to calculate your gain at the cash value even if you never went to cash" then i will of course do that. But they havent. Anywhere.
Edit: i am still editing this so it may change.

When a bitcoin transaction is tied to an asset transfer via OP Return and Open Assets Protocol, is the amount of bitcoin and those specific units tied to that asset forever?

For instance, if I send someone 1 satoshi and tie an asset to that transaction, when the person receives that one satoshi can he not spend it on a coffee without giving away the underlying asset as well? Or is the asset only tied to his wallet address?

Bitcoin is called an "immutable ledger", but other than high level stuff like the number of coins and who owns them have the devs every pledged that any specific part of bitcoin as a protocol WON'T be changed over time?

This isn't a question about if gavin anderson could reverse a transaction or change a constant like the 21 million cap. That is a different thread.
This is a question about the protocol. And what parts of it we KNOW will never change.
Like right now segregated witness is changing the physical file layout of the blockchain, but it's fine because it's not changing the conceptual nature of who owns what coins. It is a protocol change that keeps the higher levels conceptually the same.
Are there any lower level things that are truely immutable?
Like this is a question about the bitcoin blockchain being used for things other than bitcoin transactions. What parts of the protocol do we know will NEVER change.
Like people write things in addresses, do we know 100% that addresses will never ever ever get a different format and that in 50 years we won't be using some other algorithm.
Or when people store things in blocks do we know 100% that blocks are going to be the same forever and absolutely there is no chance that in 30 years the devs won't figure out a cool way to scale that lets us keep only the last 14 blocks and then use smart math to absolutely prove that the earlier blocks are pruneable (or whatever).
Like basic question: when people use bitcoin for things is any of it 100% guaranteed to work long term. Or is the only thing immutable the absolute conceptual stuff like ownership of units of bitcoin and the protocol details could shift with upgrades and remove stuff people built that required specific details of the current implementation.

Requiring "strong replay protection" means you specifically want there to be a chain split and multiple competing coins. It's a rejection of the proposed protocol upgrade in itself. /r/Bitcoin

The BTC/BSV split was about increasing the blocksize limit. The BCH/BSV split was about not changing the protocol. The BCH/ABC split will be about rejecting dictators over the consensus rules. If this settles that issue, it would be a major breakthrough for blockchain governance.

Is there any way to find out how many total active nodes are for a specific bitcoin protocol/version in the network?

This would help with statistics on adoption, network reliability, and other security and marketing tools for adoption.
