For those of you around the GA area we have ribs and cake tomorrow celebrating Bitcoin's birthday. Roughly 50 or so people expected to come. Come at your own peril. :bitcoin:

There are basically two options to build on : You either accept and adhere to mostly nonsensical regulation (even worse: preemptive compliance) or you embrace its cryptoanarchic nature and confront all of that legacy bs which Bitcoin is supposed to obsolete.

"Indians must have no confusion about how we reached impressive Covid herd immunity"

tl;dr: covid just isn't that deadly, and has spread very widely in India. Other diseases like TB kill many more people, and the population correctly recognized the low risk. Based on antibody testing, there's probably 50+ undetected infections in India for every known case.

Case numbers have been dropping since Sept for the simple reason that herd immunity is real.

Sad to find out out of of the 100 some odd people.. assange, ulbricht, nor snowden were pardoned.

After reflecting at 80C; my near future plan is to keep running this indeterminately

Socialmedia is at dire times, I don't want to dump this cosy spot until we've better solutions

I strongly encourage ppl who can, run their own instances & just connect to us

NOT YOUR INSTANCE
NOT YOUR DATA

I will keep signups closed, maybe invite only later

Moderation rules will remain the same w/ the exception of being less understanding w/ ppl being dicks, that includes bitching about BH on Twitter

"Ethereum Co-Founder Vitalik Buterin: ‘Parler Has a Right to Exist,’ Apple, Google, Amazon Denying Access to ‘Common Infrastructure’"

You'd expect Vitalik to say that, given how dependant ETH is on Amazon AWS.

Not your instance not your data.

If you are technically capable, you should run your own and just connect to here. 🤔

@nvk @k3tan are you going to block other instances that don't follow your tos?

3/6 Will I be censoring people? YES, under these rules: “This is a Mastodon instance for Bitcoin Maximalists. No scams, no shitcoin, no impersonation, no begging, and no illegal content. Keep it civil and we should all survive :)” bitcoinhackers.org/about/more
