I first tried to create a Flatpak for Bisq but failed because I couldn't get Bisq to build without relying on network resources. I needed to map out each dependency from Gradle! Gradle is a Java build tool which downloads dependencies. Snaps did not have this limitation/feature?
BTW, snap can install a `*.snap` file with the `--dangerous` flag.
@klaatu The perfect use case for blockchain is money. This is because money is half of every transaction. For better or worse money is the life blood of modern civilization. Bitcoin breaks the law of oppressive governments and gives the people a way to store value like seen in Venezuela today. Other so called use cases of blockchain are usually scams because they are not trying to break any rules and should be implemented instead with a SQL database.
I had a few spare minutes. Figured I'd try out the Brackets text editor to see if it's worth anything. After all, it's open source, cross-platform, blah blah blah.
$ sudo yum localinstall brackets.x86-64.rpm
Open source text editor with a dependency on a proprietary music streaming client? No no no no no no.
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
- Noam Chomsky
I love how @Tutanota mail defaults to no pictures whether you are on Android or the web app.

You cannot steal a thought. You can only copy a thought. You can fraudulently claim you originally came up with a thought. And you can disrespect the originator of the thoughts by not giving credit and not following the *suggested* terms off sharing the thoughts.
Once an idea is released to the public it can never be taken back.
