Okay, I am getting questions about who Lance Ulanoff is. Time for some Mastodon history.
Exactly a year ago today, Lance Ulanoff opened his article about Mastodon with this phrase:
"William Shatner couldn't find me on Mastodon.
This was a problem."
That was the day Mastodon became a shatner-proof network.
He concluced his article (titled "Mastodon will never be the next Twitter") with this:
"I suspect thousands of other Tooters (blech!) will soon do the same and Mastodon will lay down beside all other other fossilized social media platforms and fade from existence."
Since then, Mastodon grew to 1,300,000 users and 2,000 servers. This is why people bring him up today.
@Gargron These same people say cryptocurrency is dead. The joke is on them.
You should read that link more carefully.
> To date, all proof of burn cryptocurrencies work by burning proof-of-work-mined cryptocurrencies
> Because creating forks is costless when you aren't burning an external resource Proof of Stake alone is considered to an unworkable consensus mechanism.
Also, the Proof-of-Work is an hash included in the blockchain, distributed and checked by miners.
