Update: I've incurred the wrath of xxxxxxxxx so I guess everyone's curation rewards get zeroed too. Feel free to use this tip button if you want to

I've been working with @apshamilton and @jpbliberty for well over a year now. Around a year ago we had some major successes with coverage in the crypto press following a press release we put out in July 2019.

But we've never pushed for or received significant mainstream coverage; something that crosses over into normie land. Until now.

Cryptocurrency entrepreneurs to sue Google, Facebook and Twitter in an Australian class action lawsuit they claim could cost the social media giants up to $300BILLION

Top of Daily Mail Article about JPB Liberty's Crypto Class action case.

I'm very pleased that some absolutely key information about Hive made it into the piece:

Dr Bishko said the ban on cryptocurrency advertising was also crushing new social media networks that run on blockchains such as Hive which pays content creators in its own Hive cryptocurrency.

'Hive, which back then was called Steem, had been growing and growing - and suddenly they couldn’t advertise on Facebook and get new users,' he said.

'It caused enormous damage.'

'If your business had as a component of it anything that looked like a cryptocurrency, you got caught in the same net.

'So maybe you’d get a few adverts but eventually they’d do a review and your account would be blocked.'

These new emerging social media platforms that use blockchain technology are a threat to YouTube and Facebook, Dr Bishko said.

The more this article is shared, especially early on, the more the Daily Mail will be moved to promote it across their other geographies especially outside Australia.

So give it a share on your own social platforms and please get in touch if you want to know more and/or join the class action! You have nothing to lose and you might just recover some funds from the crypto winter of 2018.

Want to know more about our #CryptoClassAction? @DailyMailAU have realised this is going to be a huge story and this is a great high level summary.

DM me if you need more info. $Hive gets a good mention. https://t.co/CL3zMaiaiG

Update: my son sent me this video after I sent him the Daily Mail article. (he's following this case closely)

I loved the article and thx for all your contribution so far. It was wonderfully written and you drove some nice points. I especially liked the one where you imply subtly that Facebook fears competition like HIVE. ;)

On the "HIVE used to be called Steem", i see your point .
How i see it.
Everything that Steem should have been has been moved to HIVE so in a sense HIVE is the continuation of Steem but rebranded. The Steem thats left a useless husk.

The Hive comunity must keep going out there in the world and spread the true creed of centralized social media!

Hive needs to keep opening up to the world as more and more people ambrace ot

Hive needs to keep opening up to the world as more and more people ambrace it.

One tjing that I find hard is convincing people to get in. Why? I don't know. Maybe is because there are allot of other services that are not there.

That is why I find @steempress an amazing idea. A way from the "common" web to the Hive platforms!

There is an option for anyone to opt out of the suit and we will pencil you in for that. If you really want we can write you in by name into the court documents, we've done that for Yuchen (Justin) Sun who will never be a part of this suit. Just let us know your legal name and we'll do that for you, no fee.

Downvoted for bad language and personal abuse.

Hive was called Steem back then.
