Cryptographic Anarchy: (Mis)Adventures in Crypto

The content of this blog is exclusively to do with online privacy/security, cryptography and cryptocurrency: Understanding it, investing in it, mining it (in groups/crowds), developing/programming it, the social problems it aims to solve and the various ways to make more of it (or not, as various losses and failures happen). Let's get away from oppressive banksters and fiat, to an anarcho-syndicalist commune. Banner image: Blogger's own. Contemplating making an HD NFT version if there's interest.

The Arweavers Discord Community Tried to Scam Me out of Filecoin and 100 TB of HD Space

16 Sep 2022 2 minute read 6 comments Great White Snark

 I found Discord to be too toxic and problematic for my liking (including full of scammers and rug-pull projects), so I left and don't use it. The same goes for Reddit. Plus, they both use AWS for storage (which they apparently don't bother to encryp...
