Bastyon is a social platform that combines elements of Youtube, Twitter and Torrent; it is closing in on half a million users and growing fast. Bastyon is built on the premise that social media should be Web 3.0, decentralized with an open-source code, distributed node infrastructure and no corporate entity to control it, like the Bitcoin model. In Bastyon the users enjoy the content and moderate that content based on transparent rules, while bloggers and node operators earn Pocketcoin (PKOIN).
Daniel Satchkov is the inventor of Bastyon. He recently rejoined the Bitcoin.com News Podcast to talk about topics such as protecting online privacy, censorship resistance and how to build for survivability in times of crisis, internet outages and cyber warfare.
Daniel worked and published in the fields of quantitative finance and machine learning. In 2015 he was a winner of the prestigious Peter L. Bernstein award for the article in the Institutional Investor Journals. Daniel’s mission in inventing the Bastyon was to ensure that people can govern their own communication without arbitrary censorship from large corporations. Daniel is fascinated by the potential of Bitcoin to help secure human freedom of choice and to disrupt not just finance, but many other quasi-monopolistic industries.
