Facebook's attempt at controlling money appears definitely over

The Diem (was Libra) project is dismantled and their "intellectual property" is for sale:

"The intellectual property will consist of some trademarks, a website and the open-source code for a mediocre permissioned blockchain and various helper projects"

Schadenfreude will be the dominant feeling around here but there is something deeply sad about the cryptomanic era:

A waste of energy, talent and time

Must read thread :
Most cryptocurrencies even suck at the "crypto" part.
RT @colmmacc
The cryptography that is in 'crypto' is merely enough to serve as a foundation myth of mathematical purity and incorruptibility. It is a blinding lustered talisman used as privatized statecraft to support empires of scams. It is not actually good cryptography. A small thread.

Talking with many folks made me realize a lot has been forgotten from 20 years ago in the libre/free/open source sphere.
A lot of fights happen again w/o taking history into account. Let's try to learn and move forward in a positive way. Foster communities and decentralization. Try to not rely on single point of failures, build resilient structures. Support them.

This is the windmills you are looking for. #OFFDEM

Welcome to all the Twitter refugees! 👋

Mastodon and the Fediverse does NOT use NFTs or blockchain or cryptocurrencies. No one is on here trying to get rich, no one is promoting anything.

The Fediverse (which Mastodon is part of) is a federated computer network spread across thousands of independently owned and operated servers. The millions of people on the Fedi can interact with each other regardless of which server they signed up on, because the servers talk to each other through federation.

Federation is a proven and stable way to make a network, it's how telephones and email work for example. It's how social networks should be.

We aren't trying to break anything or compete with anyone. There are no shareholders or venture capitalists. Instead, we work together, donating time or money, and collaborate to make a better social network for its own sake.

Here are some hints and tips for new users:

@info_activism we have no good codeing for this as its all been captured by the crew. This is a mess that fuels the ideas to move to better outcomes?

How dangerous is really the #web3 degeneration (oops "decentralization")?

People who genuinely wanted to solve real problems got already burned during the #blockchain branding era, so no further damage

@malteengeler yep it's a old battle between open and closed. In this post truth world this is well messy.

The #web3 is another attempt to build fences in the "untamed wilderness" of the WWW and to subject it to property rights.
