I saw people mention Hiveway, so I read this: hiveway.io/what-is-hiveway

And my initial instinct is that it is some weird scam . Also what are "technocratic values"?

"The social platform will be ruled by its users, through an electoral system, with technocratic values."

Skimming their "whitepaper" and I am reminded of the endless, empty preening and striving I encountered on LinkedIn, which was one of the many reasons I closed my account there.
