Re: %PnQCzcOKk

My two cents:

  1. Reactions > Likes. If you've ever used Slack, you may have experienced the usefulness of the many available emoji options when responding to messages. They facilitate a more meaningful social UX rather than what I would describe as a shallow attention seeking UX of FB, Twitter, etc.

  2. Reactions should not be used to drive engagement or spread posts around. They are superior to likes because they are more communicative and their primary purpose should be as a tool to convey meaning between individuals within a conversation, not as a signal for outsiders to come put their eyeballs on a post.

  3. Giving users the ability to entirely disable reactions/likes is an awesome idea.

What do fellow scuttlers think of energy backed #cryptocurrency projects ( wepower, powerledger, restartenergy, etc. )?

The idea for a few is that pegging a crypto to energy in some way could help to incentivize renewable energy adoption and decentralization. That seems pretty #solarpunk to me and I wonder if anyone else has taken time to think about how this could work. Are there any projects that stand out?

@elavoie Cool, sounds like an FX clearinghouse. Im sure people in the blockchain space are working on applications for that so it might be useful to do a bit of research around the approaches they are taking.
