Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad
@Gargron Mastodon is dead, again, sorry.
@gargron At least they removed the Masto branding so if they do a scam-like type of shit maybe Masto won't suffer from it :')
@Laurelai Didn't he kill someone for real?
@Gargron what a weird post to read first thing in the morning
@Gargron would this be "like Bitcoin but for Twitter," or "like twitter but for blockchain"?
@gargron i don't see any source links?
@nightpool @gargron They stated they're a fork https://github.com/hiveway/hiveway/blob/master/COPYRIGHT
@Gargron It federates with Mastodon, so I'm happy that it exists 😁
@Gargron I foresee no possible way in which this goes badly. /sarcasm
@Gargron Well, I guess you'll have to stop developing Mastodon. You can't compete with something that has a blockchain /s
@Gargron Was trying to read their whitepaper. The hypocrisy was intolerable. Had to give up.
@Gargron This..is really bad.
@Gargron what does the coin even uh do.
Toots are proof of work
@Gargron I am glad to see yet another proof of how companies and investors create value everyday.
@gargron Hiveway is such an awful name too. It brings to mind either itchy red bumps, or a shitload of bees, on a highway.
@vantablack @Gargron this makes me thing of https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Do%20you%20know%20da%20wae
@Gargron It’s like all of the folks that were too lazy to build their own thing are determined to appear INNOVATIVE without actually doing the work.
It’s pretty funny to be quite honest.
Phase 1: Mastodon + Bitcoin
Phase 2: ??
Phase 3: !! PROFIT !!
@Gargron 'the first self-governed decentralized social platform. ' WAIT FOR IT HERE IT COMES
@Gargron Oh my god, you're not kidding.
What the fuuuuuuck
@gargron so, instead of helping build blockchain on top of Mastodon, they fork and reinvent the wheel. What shits.
