This decentralized Reddit copycat allows you to purchase upvotes with Bitcoin – TNW
ThunderMessage is a decentralized take on Reddit powered by Bitcoin‘s Lightning Network – and it’s already full of shitposts.
But this message board is different – instead of clicks, you have to send small amount of Bitcoin BTC for each upvote or downvote.
What results is really a great demonstration of the decentralized nature of the blockchain – but also feels strangely metaphoric to the state of cryptocurrencies in general.
It is totally devoid of censorship, runs completely on libertarian ideals, and the more Bitcoin you have – the more your vote counts.
Here’s how it works: users who have a Bitcoin wallet compatible with the Lightning Network are able to post messages.
