Manna Cryptocurrency Might Eliminate Poverty

Profit Sharing on Social Media

I have a site/app idea.

Imagine an alternative that can replace Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Quora, Twitter, and Reddit.

You can pay a small fee each month to not see ads.

Since all monetized content is created by members/users, then 70% to 90% of net profits from advertising are rewarded back to users/members.

My idea is sort of like Steemit, but more.

Imagine a Netflix of social media.

Feel free to implement this idea. I'll consider being part of your team if you ask.

If you implement this idea, I'll probably use the site/app.

In my opinion, it is unethical to modernize user generated content and to keep all the profits. Perhaps minimum royalty laws should exist.

Potential Neon Cryptocurrency Futures

The following is one potential future. The future has not manifested yet.

Brave Browser supports a distributed advertising platform (DAP) that only accepts cryptocurrencies as payment. CPU and GPU mining are built into the Brave Browser for those that want to utilize it. They can choose which cryptocurrency to mine.

On distributed social media sites sites like Steemit, DTube and DSound, and yet to be created sites, posters utilize Smart Media Tokens or Basic Attention Token and the aforementioned distributed advertising platform to continually earn money from content. Brave Browser users that view adds are also paid.

Projects like Substratum, Interplanetary File System, and Shift massively decentralize most all hosted content. You use MetaMask to send Ethereum to sites for goods and services. Your supply of Manna increases each week, since it is a basic income cryptocurrency.

Brave Browser also integrates with Namecoin, so that you can host your content in a distributed fashion and still effectively utilize top level domains.

What will the future bring?

Decentralizing Wikis Like Wikipedia Using Blockchain and Cryptocurrency

Can wikis be decentralized using blockchain technologies? Projects like Substratum, Shift, Sia, Golem, and IPFS might help to enable the decentralization of wikis. Cryptocurrencies like Steem can perhaps be used to reward contributors and editors on the decentralized wikis. Perhaps a new cryptocurrency will be created to reward and tip contributors and editors on decentralized wikis.

Wikipedia is the most popular wiki. There are many wikis out there. Wikipedia runs on software called MediaWiki. Wikipedia content is licensed under a Creative Commons license. The license of Wikipedia is CC-By-SA, which means it is a Creative Commons license that allows you to edit and re-publish content, and even to monetize the content, as long as you reshare it under the same Creative Commons license and give attribution to the contributors/creators of the often collaborative content.

So perhaps the software running wikis can be decentralized. Perhaps also, wikis can have functionality to reward people for editing, and also allow for people to tip one another cryptocurrency. Individuals who run nodes of the decentralized wikis can be rewarded with cryptocurrency. Perhaps MediaWiki or WordPress can be forked, edited, or have plugins/extensions created to support decentralization and cryptocurrencies. Perhaps readers can mine cryptocurrency in their browser while viewing content from the wiki, or perhaps a decentralized advertising platform could serve ads to users who do not contribute to the wiki, and who do not want to mine cryptocurrency in their browser. Perhaps viewing the content of the wiki (which could include text, pictures, video, and audio) wiki can be free to all. More closely examining cryptoeconomics can determine what the best sustainable structure might be. It will be interested to see if wiki technology can be decentralized and incentivized using blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Antipsychiatry Hashtags and a Me Three Movement?

Social media can be a powerful medium. Through using social media we can help to raise awareness of the wrongness and immorality of psychiatric coercion and nonconsensual psychiatry. Here are some suggested hashtags. These can be used on Twitter and various other locations on Internet.

#AntiPsychiatry
#Szaszian
#ThomasSzasz
#Szasz
#BanPsychiatry
#OutlawPsychiatry
#PsychiatryCoercion
#HumanRights
#PsychiatricSlavery
#PsychiatricCoercion
#PsychRights
#MeThree (more on this one below)

Feel free to reclaim neutral hashtags.
#psychiatry
#psychology
#psych

The hashtag #MeToo has been used by many women in relation to sexual abuse. What if we use #MeThree for those damaged, harmed, and abused by psychiatry (both semi-consensual and nonconsensual)? We can build awareness of the immorality of nonconsensual psychiatry

These are just suggestions. Feel free to list or use your own. Be creative. Together we can eventually bring about the abolition of nonconsensual psychiatry, psychiatric abuse, and psychiatric slavery.
