SourceHut 宣佈拒絕 cryptocurrency 與 blockchain 相關的專案

SourceHut 是個 GitMercurial 的 hosting service,以及提供一些專案管理常見的功能。

他們宣佈不再提供 cryptocurrency 以及 blockchain 相關專案的服務,自 2023 年生效:「SourceHut terms of service updates, cryptocurrency-related projects to be removed」。

SourceHut is planning to roll out updates to our terms of service, effective in 2023. The changes most likely to impact users is the prohibition of cryptocurrency- or blockchain-related projects on SourceHut.


These domains are strongly associated with fraudulent activities and high-risk investments which take advantage of people who are suffering from economic hardship and growing global wealth inequality. Few to no legitimate use-cases for this technology have been found; instead it is mostly used for fraudulent “get rich quick” schemes and to facilitate criminal activity, such as ransomware, illicit trade, and sanctions evasion. These projects often encourage large-scale energy waste and electronics waste, which contributes to the declining health of Earth’s environment. The presence of these projects on SourceHut exposes new victims to these scams and is harmful to the reputation of SourceHut and its community.

不過這年頭自己架 GitLab 也不是什麼難事,該有的功能都有,這個只能算是個宣言...
