TRIED TO TEST OUT FARCASTER. THE HYPED ETHEREUM BASED "COMPETITOR" TO NOSTR.

THE RECOMMENDED CLIENT REQUIRED AN EMAIL TO SIGN UP.

UNINSTALLED THE APP.

 them Gas fees must be insane lollllllll 
 5 usd as i heard 
 lol, way more 
 death to etherum 
 Sounds like a waste of developers energy. And a distraction  
 nah they'll make bank off the warp shitcoin.. too many degens 
 Ethereum is awful. 
 lol 
 KYC’ed Nostr is so on brand etherium

 Came here to see who would say this first. Congrats. 
 Email, telephone number or pay in fiat... Not a real competitor  
 Same crap like #Bluesky 🤡 
 Not to mention the app collects data from you 🫠 how is this a competition 
 AND THEY’RE MEANT TO BE A COMPETITOR? 
 I'm just glad some nostr people have tried, feels like it's blowing up and at least from the app perspective, it would be good to see how the UX is. 

But nobody I know has managed to get passed this step 🤷‍♂️  
 I tested it yesterday.

 It’s really staggering how little mETHheads give a shit about opsec 
 lots of shitcoiners i know are hyped with that crap... how to make them come to nostr.. i already mentioned it to them long ago but they didn't care.. ... maybe for the same reasons that make them shitcoiners.... how to break that vicious cycle?

 LMAO why does nobody use public/private keys? 
 Because privacy threatens the surveillance state 
 Why does any secure platform use email still? The protocol literally cannot be encrypted...... 
 WHY WOULD ANY OPEN SOCIAL PLATFORM STILL REQUIRE EMAIL, WHAT IS THIS? THE MIDDLE AGES? 😂 
 Curious so I looked at it from youtube.  Looks like a nice UI.  They say 80,000 users.  Who knows.  I will never go there, but I do like nice looking interfaces.  Groups, features look nicely done.  Pub/Priv keys? Doubt it.
And garbage Etherium. 
 Hands off that shiny shit 
 I think they were hoping for an airdrop. from it more to really want to use it 
 That UI looks sic, tho 
 Well, every day I see at least one note with users requesting nostr sign up with email/password... We still have a lot of education work to do 
 🤣🤣🤣🤣 automáticamente que pide correo electrónico hay que tirarlo a la basura 🗑️

 well sounds total opposite 🦩 nostr open ethics 

u did right thing 
 THE SHITCOINERS ARE USED TO MAKING THESE KINDA TRADOFFS 
 MANY SUCH CASES 
 same 
 EAFD is all I have to sau 
 THIS IS MY TODAY'S BEST JOKE! 
 You can tell a lot about a product by knowing the value systems of those who make them. 
 Nooooo, I NEED to send Mark Andreessen a thumbs up or at least 0.005 ether for the work he’s doing!!!1 
 HONEYPOT CONFIRMED 
 lol. Just throw “Decentralized” in front of whatever. 

Burger Kings new Decentralized Whopper 
 EMAIL IS A SHITCOIN 
 Wow, wanted to try it and the android app is completly unusable. Every part of the sign up had multiple bugs. It crashed or hung multiple times and I didn't even make it past the account creation.
Fucking trainwreck. 
 Permissioned  
 umm, how exactly does a protocol check an ID?  oh wait....it's centralized. 
 😂 
 Of course, it has its own shitcoin (warp) 
 No Fartblaster for me 
 Of course the world's biggest shitcoin would make a social media app known as Fartblaster

 fartblaster 😂 
 absolutely disgusting— thank you for your sacrifice for even touching “download” 
 I saw that there was an airdrop  shicoin 
 I saw a shitcoiner sign up. They want to get an airdrop from it, it will issue coins. 
 I hope you weren’t surprised 😂 
 The ALL CAPS has me chuckling to myself this morning.

The commitment is quite impressive. Carry on. 
 No, Warpcast didn’t ask me for an email. It just has a username and a key phrase 
 Ootl, why does this person only post in all caps lmao 
 Yeah, F that shit 
 What's this fkn noise 
 This is the way 
 FARTcaster 
 NO THANK YOU! 
 2023 was the end of my providing an email for anything

... Nostr or nothing fuckers (*maybe*... open to alt decen comms)

My dentist was confused

 
 No contest

 Is it over Ethereum in general or over Polygon, specifically Lens Protocol?  
 Even ETH's most ardent supporters acknowledge the centralizing tendencies that have emerged following the switch to PoS. ETH will pay the price for taking the climate change bait about PoW. 
 maybe they'll spend another 5 years and migrate back to pow. lol 
 Fucking aye, eth and email requiring is pathetic. Freedom!!!! 💪💪💪💪💪 
 A few weeks ago I read the Messari report, yeah I know, but I think its important to see the connect/disconnect between BTC and Crypto and I believe its the best place. Some of the things that struck me most were, all the BS acronyms for Decentralized SM, Decentralized Infrastructure etc. and All the rage for farcaster and other SM that I quickly forgot, most with their own token of course. But no Mention AT ALL of bitcoin mining, of NOSTR and all comments on LN were very dismissive. I know LN is far from a PANACEA but when it works, it works perfectly.  Some conclusions.. WE ARE SO EARLY. TOTAL disconnect in so many aspects between BTC and the rest, which means some more time to build in relative peace compared to crypto projects that have tons of VC money and eyes on them that require them quick ROI 
 complete and total garbage  
 Fukcaster!! 
 in the bin 
 I took several more steps to try it out. Their main client Warpcast doesn't work at all if you try creating an account using a seedphrase. Maybe because I'm on Mullvad. 

I tried another client, Flink.fyi. if you create an account here you can't port it over to the VC backed Warpcast. Flink is barely usable. 

Supercast is another client that requires you to login using Warpcast. 

Farcaster is a clown show.  
 More shitcoinery
