So what are we calling these new forks of Covid-19? Covid Cash? Covid Brexit Vision?

If tomorrow all my things were gone
I'd worked for all my life.
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife.
I'd thank my lucky stars
To be livin' here today.
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today.
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the USA.

@dilutionproof @nvk is another free instance. Their Social app is a rebranded Tusky, and the instance itself is - I'm using it now.

@stephanlivera no I had to export a csv of the people I was following and import that into the new instance. Interestingly, it seemed like there was an initial 30 people who must have gotten a notification of my new account following them, so they followed back right away. Some not so much so far.

More about Yunohost:

Works on almost everything including pis:

Includes one click installs for a ton of great open source apps like bitwarden, nextcloud, gitlab, and many more.

You don't even need a domain or a fixed IP. Built for self hosters at home.

@captainmorgan @eatoutfrom5lbs add to that list. The actual hostname once you sign up is

A few bitcoin instances have popped up (the OG) (hi) (by @eatoutfrom5lbs)

Decentralizing the bitcoin ecosystem means a healthier ecosystem overall

@stephanlivera This. I migrated already and frankly i can tell the difference, though my followers all got lost in the move.

Imagine a future with an organization that:

- Oversees every transaction you make
- Controls where and how you can spend your money
- Can just take your money and use it as it wish

That’s the future central bankers plan, and you only have one alternative. #Bitcoin 

@k3tan Thanks for this... Was looking for start9 alternatives... πŸ‘

An excellent explanation on selfhosting. Short and to the point.

Another gift added to the self sovereignty stack - the ability to curate my own feed! as if anyone travels anymore?

I find the experience on Mastodon much more pleasant overall when compared to Twitter.

I know, it's an echochamber...but sometimes the feeling of community is paramount. Now is one of those times.

I'm not sure how this experiment ends, but I will continue to use this platform as a primary means to connect with the bitcoin community, one of the few groups of people in the world who give me hope for the future.


@evankaloudis Just print that shit wiping paper already. Why wait for the 20th? I'm ready for πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

@DaddyWarbits It also helps that you guys can see me over there and I can see your stuff. I had 325+ followers before, those are filtering in slowly over on this side as people see my posts. Altogether, I'd say it's a good way for us to all remain connected. I loved the community feel on, no need for it all to blow up even if we end up in different places as a jump-off point.

@DaddyWarbits Seems fine - I'm planning on signing up for the full boat of their services for a year, so you can say I'm pretty pleased. I'd be running a Librem 5 if they were shipping... but yeah, I can recommend the service. FWIW, once you do and want to log in on mobile, you have to use a browser on your PC to get auth'd first before the mobile app will work. At least that's what happened to me - YMMV.
