Discussions.app, the Reddit-inspired social aggregation platform, announced its expansion to the Telos network on September 3rd.
The first project to emerge from the new collaboration will be a decentralized identity system that will allow users to register their accounts and contacts from Twitter and other social networks on the blockchain in case they are blocked or banned.
In the age of social media Users spend years building networks and followers on different platforms, although that work can be destroyed by the sometimes seemingly arbitrary decisions of networks.
Discussions.app addresses this issue by allowing users to migrate between platforms without losing their valuable identities and connections. Telos’ chief architect, Douglas Horn, explained the problem:
“It seems like I see a different, unique, platformless voice every few days and the connections they’ve built for years came out like a cheap rug from under them, especially in the crypto community. Discussions.app allows people to protect their own social networks that are immune to the whims of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. “
As Cointelegraph reported, YouTube has arbitrarily blocked (and later reintroduced) various channels related to cryptocurrency in the past few months. In May, the platform even took our special live stream of the halving event offline.
In addition to digital identity management, Telos Discussions.app offers options for advanced governance and Ethereum virtual machines that allow Ethereum-compliant smart contracts to be executed with no transaction fees.
