    Billions of folks log into social media platforms every day to share life updates and photos, form connections with other humans and create communities based on similar interests. When you sign up for an account with one of these popular platforms, you must agree to their terms of service. This means the company can decide that your content does not align with their community standards, rendering your account censored, shadowbanned, or even deactivated.  Centralized, private social media companies own all your data, and technically it is within their rights to dictate what is and what is not allowed on their platform. The problem is this type of framework interrupts our freedom and our online relationships. And if we want freedom, we must stop expecting permission to be free from traditional social networking companies. Zion is the world's first decentralized social network, built on bitcoin. Its mission is to create a place for people to connect freely in an authentic way.  Zion CEO, Justin Rezvani, and cofounder JP Sears are here today to have an honest discussion about censorship on social media, unapologetic freedom, and how Zion aims to change the future of social media. This episode contains discussions on the value of true, uncensored human connection, the role of bitcoin in social media, and the importance of decentralization on the internet. Enjoy!  In this episode you'll discover: Why freedom, community, and connection are all human needs. The solution to misinformation on the internet.  Why democracy is an experiment.  The importance of being open-minded and able to evaluate multiple perspectives. How disconnection can cause disease. What the junk food version of connection is. The difference between acceptance and agreement.  How social media platforms make a profit, and who their customers are. Why the current paradigm of social media is our fault, and how to move away from it. The problem with most alternative social media platforms.  A major difference between peer governance and platform governance on social media.  What digital democracy is.  The difference between the centralized century and the decentralized century.  Three core tenets of Zion. What a decentralized identity is. Why Zion is censorship-resistant, decentralized, and a facilitator of human connection. How the business model for Zion is different from other social media platforms. A conversation on bitcoin as an asset class and a payment network.  Why fiat currencies are losing value.
