Should appear as "Live" when I'm broadcasting Live with

So Facebook automated censorship machine blocks ad-boosting for a FREE event about the blockchain, an event where everyone is welcome to gather & learn about the blockchain, an event where things are pretty much informal and where people of all kinds of level of understanding of this complex issue share what they know with each other. nothing more, nothing less...well with Pizza & Beers.

And this is the message of :

Your ad wasn't approved because it doesn't follow our Advertising Policies. We do not allow ads that promote financial products and services that are frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices, such as binary options, initial coin offerings, or cryptocurrency. This policy is part of an ongoing effort to improve the integrity and security of our ads, and to make it harder for scammers to profit from a presence on Facebook.
How to fix: Unfortunately, we don't support your business model. If you wish to continue advertising on Facebook, we suggest promoting a different service or product.

if only had the guts and the integrity to put the same kind of limitations to fraudulent ads, real scams or flock of users harassing others. But no, Facebook is actively stopping honest use of its platform and letting all kinds of fundamentalists using its "service" to target people of color or a specific race or religion, this is all fine since facebook inception, Brexit & Trump, but a free event to learn about Blockchain for the masses ? that's way to radical ! F*** You Zuck !

The Emergence - Akasha Beta is now live - Twitter like experience on the blockchain now live with the Ethereum Testnet

Today marks the 927th day A.E. also known on planet Earth as 2 years, 6 months and 12 days After Ethereum. Five million blocks after its Genesis, the Ethereum ecosystem evolved into a planetary Community with hundreds of thousands of people connected by a constellation of projects and teams working on their dreams. It makes you wonder where the next 5 million blocks will take us.

It is still early, but the network effects can be felt already.

It’s no coincidence that Ethereum is the world’s first blockchain smashing through the 1 million transactions per day milestone, securing in the process more transactions than all the other blockchains combined. Moreover, when we look at the bigger Ethereum 2.0 picture we can expect continuous, accelerated growth towards infinity. Or the singularity.

Who knows? :)

Introducing zeppelinOS: the operating system for smart contract applications

The State of Smart Contract Programming

Ethereum changed the world by creating a distributed global shared virtual machine known as the EVM. Anyone can now use this virtual machine to run programs that handle real money and formalize contractual relationships via code. The promise is huge: we’re creating a new global and natively-digital economy based on software.

Livepeer Project Overview #blockchain #dap

The Livepeer project aims to deliver a live video streaming network protocol that is fully decentralized, highly scalable, crypto token incentivized, and results in a solution which is cheaper to an app developer or broadcaster than using traditional centralized live video solutions. In this document we present the core components of the Livepeer project: Livepeer Media Server, Livepeer Network, Livepeer Token, and Livepeer Protocol, and describe their role in creating a cryptoeconomically secure platform for live video broadcast.

@jack @Twitter @BuyThisPlatform Growth obsession : Well maybe @twitter should reject the "growth doctrine" and the constant needs for new metrics, new users, growth, growth growth and instead embrace Values, Cooperation and mutate towards becoming a real where People, Journalists, Organisations can create value while collectively owning Twitter, and invest more into "how to redistribute collective value", how to make twitter sustainable by making web actions you can do on the platform : sharing, replying, liking, retweeting, a monetisation that is powered by the blockchain and where People give and exchange value by their interactions on the platform.

Basically Twitter could become a large scale democratic experiment that would push the whole web into adopting more of this kind of collective ownership where the value created reinforce the whole platform instead of just a bunch of investors that have a vested interest to only focus on growth, return, profit.

Maybe I'm being idealistic, probably even, but until some big players don't switch, pivot into something that make sense instead of infinite growth race that make no sense, the whole web will keep being dragged into useless capitalistic approach that are bound to be unadapted for the future.
