On social media shutdowns

Mon, 01/11/2021 - 11:03 -- webmaster

If you're on Facebook or Twitter or any of the other major social networks and are concerned about censorship or being blocked, then moving to another centralized server-based social network isn't the right move. Especially so if it turns into an echo-chamber filled only with folks who think the same.

Here's a quick note copied from a friend's post. (I added info about Dash and bitcoin.)

The technology for free speech exists!

This is not about Left/Right tribalism. This is about the critical human need for free expression.

Decentralized, uncensorable crypto technology has been applied to socials. These platforms have no servers. NOBODY CAN STOP YOU FROM MAKING AN ACCOUNT; NOBODY CAN DELETE YOUR POSTS.

Uncensorable Video: https://lbry.tv

Uncensorable money: https://getmonero.org and https://www.dash.org/
- Bitcoin Cash deserves mention here as well. Do note that Bitcoin (BTC) is NOT a currency anymore. It is ONLY a gold-like store of value, worthy only of consideration as a speculative investment.

Don't waste your time using platforms run by companies, gatekeepers, or "Federated" servers. They can be censored.

Note: these might not turn out to be the long term solution, but in the short to medium term, they should suffice, especially as they improve.
