$BCH implementing a 12.5% miner's tax is hilarious and anyone not donating will have their blocks orphaned.
Literally a centralized totalitarian regime with a 51% attack threat.

Capitalism at its best can turn greed into positive-sum societal outcomes. Call this a civilizing structure.
Conversely, social media at its worst is a decivilizing structure for pride & wrath.
What are the civilizing structures for pride, envy, wrath, lust, sloth, gluttony?

Let’s say you wanted to build a community where all members were real people.
Proof-of-human: new applicant meets up in person with an existing known real user. The latter takes a group selfie and signs with a digital signature. A web-of-trust model that mixes online & offline.
Today we learned that Apple dropped its plans to end-to-end encrypt users' iCloud data backups. I've been researching the issue of secure cloud backups recently; here are my recommendations. https://t.co/3kFBC9vE5J
