I've been hearing about Mastodon for a while and I'm willing to try it out. Last night I learned that you can't keep your identity should an instance be shut down, which I am not a fan of. I was thinking maybe someone could build something on top of git, where as you gpg sign all your commits (messages/replies) and you can refer to them across repos (instances) and your gpg key *is* your identity. The biggest hurdle is probably user experience around key management. Like Bitcoin.
@LarryBitcoin maybe you want to use keybase for identity management? It won't help with recovering your tweets/follows/etc. but at least you will be able to prove you're the same person on the different instance/platform.
@thewumbles Sad to see the shitcoinization of the internet. Protonmail probably doing ICO as well :/
@kekcoin some of the storylines in this season of bitcoin really suck. can't we just kill off all the ICO and altcoin characters and move on the the big story arch? 8[
@mj Don't worry, this is just a filler arch while the writers plot out the next big story.
@kekcoin a couple more complex, intriguing villains would be nice. the roger ver and craig wright characters are pretty two dimensional, completely unbelievable and way too overacted.
The Nakamoto Institute keybase.io chat (NakamotoInst.Public) is a great Bitcoin-maximalist group, & was one of the first public keybase chat group. Unfortunately the conversation in it has since died.
