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.
@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 @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...
@schmittlauch @txt_file Session is maybe the most promising #messenger nowadays. It's the only messenger that truely respects your privacy. There is no other out of the box solution out yet that comes even close to #Session. I use Session exclusively on daily basis for a while now and it didn't make me a nazi yet, even there is a "SS" in Session. 🤦♀️
