Here's there docs. I checked on digitalocean and the "one-click" instance is $40/month. Add to that some additional costs like domain name and email service. I'd guess around $60/month total. https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/run-your-own/
@nvk There's always complainers, no way to avoid it. For what it's worth I think the people who appreciate what you're doing with bitcoinhackers greatly outnumber the haters. Regardless of what you decide to do, It's been a very positive experience for me these last few days, so thank you for that.

This seems doomed to failure in the long run since other companies (possibly outside the US) will outcompete.
@MultiBitcoiner Every right-wing rally in 2020 featured dudes in paramilitary gear with an AR-15 in their hands, but at the supposed Trump coup nobody showed up with a weapon?

@verretor It's satisfying to think of all the mental energy and angst that goes into fretting over who to block, how to block. which toots are sufficiently offensive, etc. I hope they waste a lot of time on this.
@melik That's what gets me. This guy looks at the current state of he world and thinks "I'll write about how bitcoin is dead. Everything else is doing great." Unbelievable.
