So, you see, until hardware is solved and more widely secured, we are all pretty screwed.
I haven't trusted hardware for a long time. Here's the plan, more or less:
- Test every platform we can get our hands on
- Test them again
- Test their USB3 ports
- 3rd party audits
- Open Source top to bottom-- nothing else can be secure, really. By definition. And it seem that we will never have sound money until such a system is built. AFAIK, there are 0 instances of steem on an end-to-end open solution. Zero.
And to everyone who didn't lose faith in me, thank you.
Now, I'm off to continue my work on that alternate platform I described, because y'all are worth it. Every single one of you.
