It is my friend, it is.... at least the largest part of it is.

Woe be to all of those who think they own BTC in their #CashApp, #PayPal, #Coinbase, #Crypto_dot_com, and other so-called #Exchange_based_wallets - ask yourselves this: "Why do you suppose that you have to include a **memo** when you give someone your key (aka: your public key is colloquially referred to as your "Bitcoin address")?

Answer, because you don't actually have a wallet! because you're not your own bank, people. But it is so easy for you to be your own bank.

How many people have actually asked themselves why, that along with your bank account number you also need a routing number? Think about that folks ;) Why, when you have a BTC address, do you also need to give your customer a memo to include in the transaction? It's not completely analogous, but It's #kinda_sorta the same thing lolz.

I highly recommend XLM and shielded ZEC for banking purposes, and further, giving a quick listen to Zooko Wilcox explaining how to actually protect your private assets, and keeping them private:

Now, as people (smart people, informed people, literate people - not ignorant people) begin to affect the mass exodus away from the privacy disrespecting monolithic silos of the secretive, data mining social media monopolies, they should also be looking towards the less volatile, less speculative crypto blockchains (i.e., NOT Bitcoin, which has little to no use case) as a place where their assets are safe from the dystopian lords who insist upon the fealty of their serfs in their structurally feudal empires.

We can all start by encouraging people to pay you in the crypto of your choice, and when ask to send money to someone always responding with, "What's your public key for your favored cryptocurrency?".

Just like anything else (especially in marketing 101), when someone hears this enough they'll actually go out and either setup a hot or offline wallet for themselves or ask someone to show them how - each and every time that happens, you have saved a soul.

Remember folks.... You can haz #Cheezburgerz! 🍔

All the best! :)

#Dutch parents: "We're not fucking around here bitches!"

Sang to the tune of 6 Billion Euros!

€1500 for each child who was under 13 when they started using the service
€1250 for each child who was 13, 14, or 15 when they started using the service
€1000 for each child who was 16 or 17 when they started using the service.

You would think that after getting an enema for three quarters of a billion euro a couple of months back that they would have #fingered it out, but NOOooo! That Chinese government data mining company apparently has a serious ear #infucktion.

Fuck you #TakToe!

Hey @privacytools Henry...

I must be missing something here... ***Why are you advocating for this insecure solution***, when it's patently not ready for primetime?

Perhaps a good idea, but Most of us have given up on it completely - it's not much more than beta software, and they haven't addressed potential exploits brought to their attention over a year ago (Maybe someday - but so far.... nope):

https://spideroak.chat/t/linux-wont-run-ootb/1308/8?u=tallship

These are **serious flaws / security issues** in software purporting to be safe and they're also advertising it as secure in enterprise production environments.

This just isn't true - it is a #security_risk!

Yes, the romantic connotations of the magic buzzword ***"blockchain"*** are indeed compelling for taking a look at emerging use cases, but, #Henry... you're actually recommending this as a solution right there alongside #NextCloud.

I'd like to see you take a deeper dive - people really respect your take on #privacy and #FOSS advocacy, and in the past you haven't been bashful when it comes to changing your ratings and recommendations on say, so-called "VPN providers" when less than complimentary aspects of their handling of #customer_privacy has come to light.

You could have put #SyncThing up there next to NextCloud, or some other solution that although, may not be as romantic as something touting #blockchain security, is certainly secure - way more secure, and proven to be so.

For someone who literally had the balls to completely de-google himself (from an account you've had since you were ten years old), I know you can do much better, and your not easily bamboozled by crappy software under a pretty facade.

Come on my friend - let's wait until tomorrow before we begin promoting the general use of tomorrow's software.... if it ain't soup yet... ;)
