When people are financially invested they want a return. When people are emotionally invested they want to contribute. #bitcoin
Since we're all pulling for BTC here, share this "Crypto 101" article I wrote to help explain Bitcoin transactions to newbies. Extensively tested on clueless members of my family, with great success. https://medium.com/casa/crypto-101-bitcoin-transactions-e1853653f479
I want to emphasize that I am very skeptical that #CryptoMastodon will take off. But i'm willing to try, because:
1. We need to learn how to continue the conversation under censorship
2. We need alternatives to Twitter and Reddit
3. Help platforms like @mastodon improve
4. Figure out how to transport identity and reputation
5. Find more alternatives
6. Enjoy some #shitposting
TIL "The mastodon.social instance run by the main developer of the software, and many of the other first-established instances, are registered in France. Early surveys of the users indicated that French people were the majority. Nonetheless, English quickly became the main language used for talking on the network, even by the French."
