Topic starter  

I just read a news article about these guys: 

https://revolutionpopuli.com/

They are working on making a decentralized blockchain databased social network which is open source.

I wonder if their decentralized social network will be encrypted?

If so, it may be a useful platform for the far-right to use.

They have a GitHub. 

This is something to keep an eye on.

This is something I will be looking into immediately after the smoke clears.

It's block chain based, so instead of user data being centralized and harvestable by one single corporation it's distributed and encrypted. It looks like it's JavaScript libraries, so at least from what I can tell, we're dealing with a sort of 3JS or JQuery. A technology we'll be embracing here, for sure once they release a stable version.

Take, like LBRY for example. https://lbry.tv/ Pretty neat, right? "Information wants to be free". *it runs a lot faster when using the app over the lbry:// protocol This seems to be the way forward.
