Revolution Populi, a social network It was directed by David Gelernter, futurist and pioneer of distributed computing. They integrate Chainlink (LINK) data oracles.
Revolution Populi is trying to crowd out Facebook by creating a social network where users can post and share information about their lives, “but advertisers pay, not Facebook.” The network is just the first of many distributed applications that the company plans to launch in the near future.
A futurist who predicted social media and became the goal of the Unabomber
The idea itself doesn’t sound new, as there were some projects in the crypto space that tried to give users back ownership of the data. However, Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the project is that David Gelernter acts as a visionary boss.
Gelernter became known in the 1980s for his contributions in the field of parallel computing. Later, In 1991 he published a book “Mirror Worlds” that anticipated the development of the World Wide Web, including the phenomenon of social media. The jubilee probably caught the unwanted attention of Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. On June 24, 1993, the learned man was seriously injured when opening a pack of explosives.
The three legs of the stool
Rob Rosenthal, CEO of the company, said this to Cointelegraph The social network is just one of the three legs of the stool they build:
“It’s disgusting enough for them to take our sovereign property, sell it and keep all the money. But there are much bigger problems. I mean, it’s the public space. You control everything in this public space. As you said, they Data is in your private database. […] We have a solution that we call a three-legged approach to the chair. By the way, it’s not just a social network. It is an ecosystem. “
The other two parts are the decentralized databasewhich will be structured as a decentralized autonomous organization or DAO, and the third leg is the stock exchange or data market.
In the coming weeks, the company will present its own blockchain that will serve as the backbone for the “stool”.. Rosenthal quickly emphasized that Gelernter is actively involved in the daily activities of the company. In fact, he designed the user interface for use in social networks.
A new kingdom for Chainlink
Rosenthal believes that Chainlink integration not only offers a necessary level for your project, but can also help the oracle provider to broaden his horizons:
“I think they were wrongly put in a drawer and the DiFi world. I think their technology can be extended to other projects like ours, which have a broader and more ecosystem-based base. I talked to the boys, I think they are very happy with this integration because it will bring them to a different kind of kingdom. “
Break with the recent trend Revolution Populi plans to launch a first coin offering in the fourth quarter of 2020. Rosenthal declined to disclose many details, but found that he would fully meet the requirements.
Recently, The LINK token has set new standards in terms of various associations and integrations.
