I'm pretty sure the number of follows I've gotten on Keybase has grown 2-3x since they launched their cryptocoin airdrop. I'm also fairly sure that indicates a botnet looking to fool whatever social graph metric they have for proving that accounts are owned by real people.
Still, I bet they could get another few rounds of funding before VCs realize how inflated the user counts are.
So, botnet scammers trying to take advantage of their free money might get leveraged into an exit scam.

banking, cryptocurrency commentary
99ish% of the time I think cryptocurrencies are a stupid waste of electricity.
...that said, every now and then I need to make a large payment which is both legal and well within my budget, but is almost invariably declined due to a decision made by a completely unaccountable algorithm.
Getting a response from my bank seems to take at least 48 hours, if they respond at all.
Imagine setting the bar so low that a bunch of libertarians could trip over it. wow.
September has been our best month ever for premium subscriptions on http://CryptPad.fr! We've received 965 Euros so far. It's silly, but our accountant would love to have a nice number. One more team subscription would put us over 1000!

We're working on adding colors for folders in CryptDrive (https://github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad/issues/383) and trying to decide on a color palette.
While there are lots of resources available for choosing small palettes which are accessible to people with colorblindness, we're having trouble finding larger ones (16-20 colors) which are still pleasant enough that people won't yell at us for being bad designers.
Can anyone point us in the right direction?
