Gab recently joined the Bitcoin train, which is great, but it's not going to be enough to save them. Bitcoin is too centralized and dependent upon exchanges, the point in the system that can be controlled.
Speech and art are under threat. Free speech should be defended with the medium and the money that undergirds that medium. I'm astonished at the feverish support of financial and technological banishment people are receiving at the hands of banking and tech companies, even with those I find abhorrent.
The Internet is the new printing press and its power will be stripped from anyone deemed unworthy, which is why I'm so glad Steem exists. I might not like some of the people on the Steem network, but they should be free to say what they want.
The same goes for Gab as a network. It's their platform, and if the censors who are taking it down for the crime of allowing anyone to say what they want on their network, how long before they come for Steem for its censorship resistance?
How long until our little community, in our tiny corner of the world is attacked for allowing others to be free.

If you want to know who I am and what Distant Signal is, check this out. It's sort of a manifesto. The TL;DR is that I've won an award for producing, make a lot of reality TV, live in LA and think that artist and media incentives are misaligned and serve large corporations and not independent artists.
The fist horror / thriller film made on and with the Steem blockchain. Use this hashtag to find out all about it!

In 2019 the goal is to produce the short horror film, Changelings, the world of that story and to build a community of filmmakers that are enthusiastic about filmmaking and crypto currency.
