@ericjmorey Not sure whether I understand the question. You can simply do that the same way as you replied to this thread, just go to the post or comment you want to reply to and hit the reply icon 😊
I respectfully disagree. There has been a longer discussion here about that you may be interested in.
I don’t think that BTC is an appropriate solution currently for use as a means of payment given its high volatlity, but as a principle I agree that appropriately designed crypto could be a solution. What the world needed imo is a mix of different currencies for different use cases globally, regionally and locally.
I can’t comment on Lula, but there is no doubt that this currency would take a very long time to gain the necessary trust even among the participants. China has been trying to push its Yuan as a new world reserve currency for some time, but this would be even harder given their economic and political regime.
What they obviously really try to do is to -understandibly- ‘escape’ the USD and in part the EUR systems, though for the currency to be successful it would require political, social and economic reforms within most BRICS+ countries before the introduction of such a new money. Unless these reforms are made, I see little chance for this project. Many articles about it across the web are highly sensationalizing imo.
I am wondering whether the Streisand effect is already here, but am not sure whether the Chinese government would care. And it’s not only China but also the US which doesn’t fully cooperate with the UN as I have read recently. There appears to be too much politics, too much national interest on all sides.
More data transparency would not only help scientists to better understand the origin of the virus but also help to fight future pandemics. I am not an expert in this field, but I guess more international collaboration would be beneficial for the entire globe (not in the least because, as you suggest, there’s no country to blame for as such an outbreak can happen anywhere, anytime).
There are many reports like this one in recent years unfortunately.
Yes, Briar is aiming at special use cases, e.g., investigative journalists and activists. It offers features such as communicating with peers even if the internet is down. This can be essential in high-risk and war-torn areas or in case of a natural desaster, but it’s certainly not aiming at the average user.
Cwtch is a great project, too, imho, but still in early development. They’ll need time (and funds), but I do hope they continue their good work.
Have been using Jami for some time, and it works great.
This is weird. I don’t know what happens here (this banner suggests you’re not logged in), but the best thing is to ask an admin at beehaw.org/c/support. Sorry, but that’s beyond my knowledge.
