The #SessionMessenger fork of #Signal uses the #LokiNet mixing network.
While a mixing network built on a blockchain that uses a capitalist game-theoretic Sybil protection scheme and its own coin for premium features should be a red flag by itself, this project seems to be deeply involved with the #AltRight and chan culture:
According to https://media.ccc.de/v/36c3-10639-let_s_play_infokrieg the successor of 8chan has been announced and is run on LokiNet as well.
So stay the fuck away from it.
@Bobo_PK Huh, pullt der Post nicht den gesamten Thread nach? Guck mal, worauf ich geantwortet habe
@schmittlauch sorry muss bei tusky hochscrollen und sehe das nicht sofort. Danke für die Info. Klingt auf jeden Fall als wollte man damit nichts zu tun haben wollen
@schmittlauch danke dir für den Hinweis. *grusel*
@schmittlauch woah thanks for the tag. this is an interesting tidbit I have not at all seen.
@schmittlauch @txt_file The Loki network is an open network, Lokinet supports 8Kun as much as Tor supports 8Kun. You cannot control who uses Lokinet or Tor, otherwise they would be able to censor hidden services. Lokinet is not related to 8Kun in any way, its just that 8Kun decided to use Lokinet like they decided to use Tor aswell
@schmittlauch this is just completely false in every way. so many incorrect assumptions here. it is open source software, anyone and everyone can use it. no way to stop that. that does not suggest support though
@maniacbolts The community a project comes from shapes how it is developed and how it can be used, so it *is* a relevant thing.
Honestly the cryptocoin-based focus on blockchain economics is enough reason to keep it at arms length alone.
@schmittlauch the project does not come from that community whatsoever though. they just happened to decide to trial using some of Loki's technology, which i think they've now abandoned anyways.
not sure why people are so scared of cryptoeconomics. just look at the current financial system to see its riddled with HUGE problems. im willing to try innovate on that...
