Logging back into my old mastodon account, there’s a decent amount of activity and users building up.
Many of them are software developers, business leaders or other professionals who are still engageable without the noise of the hundreds of millions of users on Twitter drowning any good-faith discussion out generally.
There are also lots of crypto critics on Mastodon. Not one to shy away from a debate, it’s an easy way to engage with prominent critics, and learn from the mistakes of other cryptocurrencies. A list is given below.
- Sign up for an account, you can change the drop-downs here to select ‘Public Organization’ legal structure and ‘Instant’ sign-up speed.
- moa.party lets you bridge your Twitter<>Mastodon easily. I recommend not bridging RTs/QTs
- fedi.directory has some tips for getting started on Mastodon, as well as some categorised accounts to follow.
The search on mastodon is purposefully bad (for privacy). Best way to find stuff is to add hashtags to your Home feed, and then jump on any related discussions that pop up!

Twitter is actively censoring Mastodon references on its platform. So much for free speech. There are also reports of journalists being denied access. Let’s publish a master list of Mastodon addresses of relevant people and crypto skeptics here.
Still feeling my way around Mastodon. Plan to set up an Ergo account and bridge it from Twitter, and would be good to get more ergonauts over there!
