It's always funny when people on Twitter think Mastodon is based on a blockchain somehow

"Sounds like your blockchain isn't actually decentralized"

That's my secret cap 😎 There is no blockchain

I'll do a big brain post and say, in my opinion, blockchains aren't even that decentralized. They're just distributed. You have a single global state and you need consensus in the network to modify it. Mastodon servers have a lot more independence than that 'cause they don't care what else happens in the network.

@Gargron so, if I read this right, you're saying that Mastodon is actually a decentralized block chain?
