Prior to late May 2021, most of these channels were on the [https://freenode.net/ Freenode] network.  Due to an [https://gist.github.com/joepie91/df80d8d36cd9d1bde46ba018af497409 Ownership dispute over Freenode], several have moved to [https://libera.chat Libera.chat]. The ones that remained on Freenode are no longer linked below, as the channel registration database there was deleted on June 14, 2021. Try them on Libera, or ask for help in <tt>#bitcoin</tt> on Libera.

Most of the channels are either on [https://libera.chat Libera.chat] or on [http://www.freenode.net Freenode] IRC networks.
