@nvk what is LOT?
@mastodonusercount wow the average new mastodon users in 24 hours has gone up more than 10x since I last checked a couple weeks ago iirc
@baguette even *if* most of bitcoin's hashrate is in china, it does *not* mean they "own the network entirely", there is very little China can do to control anything in bitcoin.
We're hiring a Software Developer for our Anti-Censorship Team.
This developer will work to improve the user experience and process of finding alternate routes to the Tor network when global censorship events block access. FT & remote.
@melik @Seccour I said nothing about the counting process being centralized, I think it can be done entirely decentralized. I think I need to clarify that I do not claim to have a solution, nor that a solution would be easy (I think it is quite the challenge) but for anyone to argue (especially bitcoiners) that paper voting is superior to *any possible* cryptographic scheme is mind boggling. If decentralized money can be solved, so can a voting system.
@Seccour voting is very broken that none of it is independently verifiable, one must assume that is abused.
@Seccour you are short-sighted if you think a system cannot be developed to suite all of the needs for such a system. Paper proves absolutely nothing, and is extremely easy to fake, and nobody can independently prove anything. If I have a paper that has a "vote" on it with my squiggly signature, it proves absolutely nothing.
@Seccour actually no, it's the same thing. Do you trust a squigly signature over a cryptographic signature?
Mastodon is adding E2E encryption!
I'm very excited to see some progress by bluesky. Their update tweet here: https://twitter.com/bluesky/status/1352302820196818946
The ecosystem review paper:
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
