Visioning Censorship Resistant Technologies

A day before announcing his resignation, Larimer revealed on boycotting Twitter, saying that the censorship has gotten out of control. He even added that he can no longer empower such a corrupt company.

Larimer was likely referring to the platform’s ban of U.S. President Donald Trump and has since vowed out on banning traditional social media platforms.

During his resignation announcement, he emphasized that his focus will be on creating tools that people can use to secure their own freedom, saying:
