- interesting project to index the blockchain
youtube.com/watch?v=7gC7xJ_98r Something like this could be used to index )
There was already an attempt to do it - . I think there is actually a question, do fediverse wants (or needs) to be indexed. It could make whole network more vulnerable for censorship, for example

Is there any server, which at the same time:
- implements Mastodon’s REST API, like Pleroma or Kibou
- uses or other NoSQL as db backend

Language is an imperfect, incomplete, and low-bandwidth serialization protocol for the internal data structures we call thoughts.

It's called crypto-currency because secretly it's a currency but publicly it claims to be a blockchain.

What do you call an ecosystem which is both collaborative AND competitive ?
Like internet operators who need bid against eachother for customers but also need to interconnect in order to have anything to provide...

So, Ukrainian government have banned github. Should we expect pump of token? )

It could be used to make tips to content creators in . Like fetching a public key from user profile (which is already available), the use it to encrypt access to some token/ , and finally content creator could use his private key to collect .
At least, admins of self-hosted instances could do that)

Is it possible for regular user of mastodon instance to retrieve his private key, which is used to sign posts which server sends to other instances?
Do any other activitypub implementations allows to retrieve it?

Idea how to create instance-independent user accounts. Take existing activitypub Rust implementation (like lemmy or plume) and merge it with identity node based on substrate, like this one github.com/sunshine-protocol/s
This will create decentralized keybase-like network )

Next time you see a new protocol, github repo, manifesto, or kickstarter for a #distributed social network, post this in the comments, and fire up the popcorn maker:
