Some good Bitcoiners to follow if you haven't already
Great to be here with you all 👍
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.
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
