About PoastPoast is a way to join the Fediverse, to be part of a community, and escape the Big Tech stranglehold on public discourse.Staff@graf - Owner@undu - Administrator@milk - Administrator@ceruds - Moderator@merchantHelios - ModeratorWhat is Fediverse?The Fediverse a portmanteau of & ldquo;federation& rdquo; and & ldquo;universe& rdquo; is an ensemble of federated i.e. interconnected servers that are used for web publishing i.e. social networking, microblogging, blogging, or websites and file hosting, but which, while independently hosted, can communicate with each other. On different servers instances, users can create so-called identities. These identities are able to communicate over the boundaries of the instances because the software running on the servers supports one or more communication protocols which follow an open standard. As an identity on the fediverse, users are able to post text and other media, or to follow posts by other identities. In some cases such as on Poast, users can even show or share data video, audio, text, and other files publicly or to a selected group of identities and allow other identities to edit other users& rsquo; data such as a calendar or an address book.

This domain registration prevents third parties from seizing control of your domains by putting control directly into your crypto wallet, preventing any malicious actor from manipulating your domain.You can access ENSdomains by using Opera native support for IPFS sites so far or using a plugin called MetaMask, a third party wallet that supports DNS resolution with the ENS service. With MetaMask installed, you can simply visit the below URL which will take you to our TOR hidden service address to access Poastpoast.eth/ - keep in mind the trailing slash is required so MetaMask knows you are looking to resolve an ENSdomain!Open Source SoftwareSoapbox is free and open source FOSS software that runs atop a Pleroma serverThe Soapbox repository can be found at Soapbox-feThe Pleroma server repository can be found at Pleroma-beLast updated: Nov 1, 2021
