Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad

@dashie @Gargron it didn't have enough Blockchain, obviously. Stronger Platforms must prevail

@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?

@Laurelai @Gargron John "Probably Killed Someone, Like, For Real" McAfee

@nev @Laurelai @Gargron probably killed a guy, probably ran a drug cartel in belize where he deffinitely did muscle out the local law and had a harem of underaged girls. Link: wired.com/2012/12/ff-john-mcaf

@Laurelai @Gargron He is wanted in Belize, being suspected of having murdered his neighbour. The authorities suspected him since he refused to answer routine question and showed signs of extreme paranoia.

@Gargron @Laurelai He faked two heart attacks in Guatemala in order to buy time for his lawyers to prevent his deportation to Belize and no new charges were pressed against him as his home in Belize burned down under suspicious circumstances.

@Shotagonist @Gargron @Laurelai surely at this point you'd think *someone* would want him dead?

@SoniEx2 @Gargron @Laurelai Being paranoid doesn't mean they *aren't* out to get you.

@Gargron @Laurelai He totally didn't, you can't prove anything, you'll never take him alive!

@Gargron @Laurelai I know he ran for US president once. Needless to say the campaign did not get much off the ground. lol

@ChrisWere @Gargron @Laurelai I think his biography would make a pretty entertaining docudrama movie though. I'd watch it with popcorn'n'coke.

@drequivalent @Gargron @Laurelai Yeah, it would make quite an amusing movie. I imagine it as a slightly techier version of The Disaster Artist.

@ChrisWere @Gargron @Laurelai Disaster Artist + Pirates of Silicon Valley with a pinch of Pablo Escobar movies.

@ChrisWere @Laurelai @Gargron he didn't even make it out of the Libertarian primaries lol

@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"?

@Eramdam @gargron it's good that it's on github, but they removed the source code links from the website itself.

@morguldir @Gargron @nightpool @Eramdam theem fucks! They must be joking. Fuck this shit. Dickheads! 🤢

@nightpool @gargron I mean. They seem to want to hide their affiliation to Masto/fediverse so I'm not surprised 🤷

@nightpool @Gargron @Eramdam That sounds quite awful, but everything now has to have added blockchain for fashion reasons, right?

I'd rather keep blockchains out of the fediverse. If the fediverse becomes a place for financial contracts and money exchange then this will invite a whole new level of badness.

@bob @Eramdam @gargron @nightpool fediverse culture ruined by investment bankers. sounds real fun

@a_breakin_glass @nightpool @Gargron @Eramdam If that happened I'd definitely lose interest. Money attracts the baddest of bad guys.

@Eramdam @nightpool @Gargron wait, how do you INTEGRATE eth blockchain into mastodon <.<

@Eramdam @nightpool @Gargron the summary of changes is hilarious. Basically slap etherium in there and hide features and branding. This must have taken them like what, a week?

@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 what does the coin even uh do.

Toots are proof of work

@Vopo @Gargron They didn't even mention that it's mastodon based.
1. Install mstdn.
2. Change theme and some text.
3. Profit??
Looks like scam to me.
What do you think?

@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 tbh, I read 'hiveway' in the timeline with no context and I was like "is this some new homestuck thing?"

@vantablack @gargron Bees on a Highway, on the other hand, sounds excellent
