@bitflip Very interesting idea.
I believe that regardless of @nvk's generosity, we bitcoiners should try to implement such a feature on top of Mastodon and open source it and possibly enable it on this server as a proof of concept.
This could pave the way to a new era of social networks. Not only decentralized, but ad free and spam free. It's also an amazing use case for LN.
How to start a discussion on this? Could @nvk maybe promote this idea? I want to discuss with more bitcoiners.
Well it sure feels like #bitcoin twitter is alive and well tooting their sovereign souls away.
Love to see this.
Mastodon cannot be securely used with Tor since it cannot run as a native hidden service. If you do not use mastodon with a hosted vpn (such as mullvad) then both the server and @nvk can log your IP address. The server is a honeypot of personal info on bitcoiners including DMs. Be aware!

Fun fact: Many Mastodon instances hate free speech. https://github.com/dzuk-mutant/blockchain/blob/master/list/list.md
Twitter censorship might be a blessing in disguise.
Users will leave the platform and seek alternatives. Some will end up on other centralized services and, in time, those too will be compromised or deplatformed. Eventually, it will be abundantly clear that decentralization is the key to free speech and censorship resistance. Normies will finally understand what Bitcoiners have been talking about this entire time.
bitcoin. programming. science fiction. freedom.
