Some thoughts on the Gab hack. First off, Andrew Torba seems like a well intentioned man and Gab seems like the least bad of centralized platform, at least in its intentions. The problem though, is that centralization is always the weak link.
It is the weak link with censorship. It is easy to pressure a centralized entity. It is easy to cut off their servers (Parler). Brian Acton of Whatsapp was a very well intentioned person who sold out his users for a few billion dollars to far less well intentioned ones.
But centralization is also very horrible for security. No matter how much effort you put into security, the stash of all that data sitting on central servers is going to be breached sooner or later. And in the case of an overstretched entity like Gab, under attack from everywhere, the breach happened sooner. But that is not their fault. It is just that in the centralized paradigm your passwords and personal data is stored in one big place. If it is not breached from outside, it will be sold from inside.

And here we get to the main driving force behind Pocketnet. There are simply no centralized servers to breach. Each user has their own private keys, they are not stored in one central place.
There are no central servers requiring Amazon's AWS computing power, they can go to hell, because our users run nodes that power the network. And with some recent releases notice that a decentralized network does not need to be slow. In fact, it is more scalable than centralized ones in some respects. And it can be faster than them.
You have made a right decision to join Pocketnet, because in the centralized world things will get hairier by the day. Even for well intentioned entities.

P.S. Over the next two months we are releasing a treasure trove of features. But we are also putting a huge focus on our referral program. Note that right now you will get a bonus of 20% of Pocketcoin earnings for anyone you invite over (and that does not mean they get any less). We have redone the way posts are shared. You can also go to your profile in the upper right and click Share. Share to your email contacts, your social networks contacts, everyone. We don't have VCs to power user acquisition, so this network will survive only if each one of your promotes it to friends. Onward in defense of freedom of communication!
