To have a fixed address on your home ISP use Tor onion service (the best and easiest option) and dynamic DNS (in case you also need clearnet, maybe for testing, or maybe for friends who can't Tor). 4/4.

are there any services where one can pay with lightning to store—not hosting, just private access through SFTP or WebDAV—say, a few 100GB of data ?
(access through a Tor hidden service would be nice but not required—and i can handle encryption myself 😀 so no fancy client is needed)
Coinbase has always been a bad actor.
I do wonder if futures exchanges should have just removed Coinbase from their index during the incident to firewall the situation.
If you can, you should run your own instance. And or create smaller "tribes", this makes for more resilient webs.

Everyone is a censor.
Run your own shit, and connect with whoever wants to voluntarily connect with your.
Anyone who knows the history of pornography laws should find such sentiments incredibly concerning coming from a "free speech" platform. It's a slippery slope of defining things as not speech in order to justify censoring them. https://twitter.com/getongab/status/1348632104733536258
