Powered by Polkadot, Subsocial is a pedestrian collection of platforms with a web UI, per its official website. The platform allows users to launch their own decentralized social network.
In this sense, Subsocial Describe itself as a “platform for building social networks”. A user within the Vitalik Buterin domain will be able to use it in Polkadot and the Kusama ecosystem.
What Vitalik Buterin can do with Dotsama
Similar to the Ethereum Name Service (ENS), these features enable users to own and redirect their domain “anywhere”, integrated with sub-decentralized applications (dApps), or any Dotsama dApp.
This way, the user can be easier to find across the entire ecosystem and have more control over their data. The team behind Subsocial said:
Having a single username across hundreds of social media apps will be very convenient, and consistency will help people find you on any app. We created a workaround for the non-existent central Web2 .sub TLD, and acquired a sub.id domain name to redirect Web3 subdomains to all Dotsama Domains usernames.
Domains can vary from user to user, and some can use .polka, .ksm, .sub, .movr or others. SUB owners will have access to 3 different domains.
Additionally, the platform claimed to be working on a feature that will enable Web3 creators to monetize their work. Similar to OnlyFans, Patreon, etc. Locations It works but is powered by Subsocial’s decentralized platforms.
Vitalik Buterin and social media discussion
Recently, the spotlight came to light on social media, where Tesla CEO Elon Musk presented Twitter shareholders with a multibillion-dollar offer to take over the platform. This has been a cause of controversy in the crypto community as some users believe that Musk will “save” the platform, and others may “destroy it.”
The inventor of Ethereum influenced this debate. Via his personal Twitter account, he She said the following:
I’m not against running Elon on Twitter (at least compared to the status quo), but I don’t agree with the general enthusiasm of the wealthy/hostile establishments of social media companies. This could easily *wrong* happen (eg imagine a morally opposing foreign government doing this)
At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is trading at $3000 with sideways movement on the 4-hour chart.
