A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.
Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).
Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.
No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.
(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)
Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain
Adopted my first OC from @Lumaga@twitter.com and @MatiasSoboredo@twitter.com looking forward to playing with this goofball!
“.01% of bitcoin holders hold 27% of all bitcoin! That’s 100x the wealth concentration of the regular economy.”
Next time someone tells you cryptocurrencies and blockchain are about decentralisation, laugh in their faces. Loudly. While pointing at them.
Fediphoto Lineage is an app for Android phones which makes it as easy as possible to share photos on the Fediverse. You can follow at:
It's available through @fdroidorg and has a page at https://f-droid.org/packages/com.fediphoto.lineage
It's based on an app by @pla, who enjoyed sharing pictures on the Fediverse while out and about. PLA sadly died in January 2021, and Fediphot Lineage aims to honour his memory by keeping his project alive.
Wanted to give her something for like when she is off work or something, idk.
