|Coinbase-Backed DeSo Unveils MegaSwap, a Stripe for Crypto product, with...
[PRESS RELEASE - Los Angeles, United States, 7th February 2023]
DeSo is excited to announce the launch of MegaSwap – a revolutionary, cross-chain smart service that enables users to securely and easily swap coins between different blockchains with a frictionless zero-login. MegaSwap solves various critical pain points, including onboarding new users and liquidity to any web3 application across any blockchain ecosystem.
In its limited release, the platform has already seen more than $5 million in volume, demonstrating its potential to revolutionize the crypto market with cross-chain swaps.
MegaSwap offers an alternative and safer solution to the traditional centralized exchange model where users don’t ever have to log in or provide sensitive personal information. Instead of storing their coins on a centralized exchange, users can store them in their own self-custody wallets to mitigate the risk of unforeseen meltdowns, such as those seen with FTX, BlockFi, Celsius, or Voyager.
MegaSwap is a simple, innovative solution for developers seeking to build web3 applications on different blockchains. Developers can install its frictionless zero-login API with a single line of code, making their apps chain-agnostic and accessible from any blockchain. For the first time, apps on Ethereum can easily compose with apps on Solana or DeSo. MegaSwap thus makes it easier for liquidity and new users to be onboarded into any blockchain ecosystem.

|Nostr Decentralized Social Network Now On Apple and Google Stores
Nostr, the decentralized social network supported by Jack Dorsey, the former CEO of Twitter, can now be downloaded on Apple and Google app stores.
Nostr On App Stores
Per a tweet on January 31, Jack Dorsey said the app can now be downloaded via its client, Damus, for iOS users, and Amethyst for those using Android devices.

— jack (@jack) January 31, 2023
Nostr, which stands for 'Notes and Other Stuff Transmitted by Relays’, is an alternative to centralized social networks, including Twitter. For ages, mainstream social media platforms have been accused of morphing into government machinery and used to violate privacy and other rights.
There have been reports of censorship and political suppression in the United States, as detailed in “Twitter Files.' Twitter Files are a set of internal documents from Twitter, the social media company. They were declassified and released to the public in December 2022 by Elon Musk and journalists, including Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss, after Elon Musk took over Twitter in late October 2022 after a $44 billion deal.
Decentralizing Social Media
Jack Dorsey donated 14 BTC, roughly worth $250,000, in late 2022 to fund the development of the alternative social media platform, Nostr, which promises decentralization and control of data and accounts.

DeSo, a new layer-1 blockchain that raised $200 million from Sequioa, a16z, Coinbase Ventures, and others, announces the release of timed auctions through their social NFT platform, NFTz.
DeSo’s recent string of successes includes a significant surge in price, an influx of new users, and an all-time high in on-chain NFT activity
Timed auctions allow for better creator monetization and price discovery for NFT artists
Decentralized Social (DeSo), the new layer-1 blockchain custom-built for decentralized social media, has announced the release of timed auctions through their social NFT platform, NFTz.me.
DeSo is riding a wave of success as it executes its roadmap to become The Unified Social Layer of Web3, a creator-led and user-owned internet open to everyone. DeSo NFT activity recently hit an all-time high of 20,000 txns per day, placing it third in the industry above Solana, Ethereum, Flow, Polygon, and BNB Chain.
The uptake in adoption of NFTs on DeSo and the other creator tools, such as Diamond come at a time when DeSo has recorded new benchmarks in terms of price, users, and on-chain NFT activity. NFTz’ introduction of timed auctions allows for better creator monetization and price discovery for NFT artists. Additionally, this feature is built into the blockchain and can’t be removed or made optional.

|Coinbase-Backed DeSo Disrupts Telegram, WhatsApp, and Signal
[PRESS RELEASE - Los Angeles, CA, 11th October 2022]
DeSo, a new blockchain that has raised $200 million from Coinbase, Sequoia, and Andreessen Horowitz, just launched decentralized on-chain end-to-end encrypted group chats, a first-of-its-kind innovation.
On-chain messages are resistant to censorship and can be used pseudonymously without supplying personal information, just like Bitcoin or Ethereum.
DeSo is the only blockchain that supports seamless end-to-end encrypted on-chain messaging today, and the extension to group chats is a first-of-its-kind breakthrough.
Apps like Diamond, a Decentralized Twitter app that launched recently, are launching decentralized encrypted group chats on DeSo in the coming weeks. Diamond already supports end-to-end encrypted on-chain direct messages, which DeSo has featured since early 2021.
Today, Signal is the most popular private messaging app, and yet users can't use it without entering a personally-identifying piece of information: their phone number. This makes it so that anyone with access to Signal's database gets full information about who the user messaging and when. Additionally, because Signal is a centralized service, it has been blocked in major countries like China.
Imagine if creating a Bitcoin wallet required users to give up their phone numbers. Why can't users have the same level of privacy and censorship resistance that they have with Bitcoin but applied to their communications?
Today, the DeSo blockchain brin...

[PRESS RELEASE - Los Angeles, CA, 5th October 2022]
A novel web3 social platform called Diamond is launching on DeSo, a new blockchain that has raised $200 million from Coinbase, Sequoia, and Andreessen Horowitz.
Diamond is the first product ever to enable all posts, profiles, social graphs, and content to be hosted on a decentralized censorship-resistant blockchain.
Posts on Diamond can be minted as NFTs, earn crypto tips, and other novel features.
Today, content is hosted on centralized platforms like Twitter, TikTok, or Instagram. Many thought leaders like Elon Musk and even Twitter founder Jack Dorsey call for an alternative.
Recently, messages emerged between the two billionaire entrepreneurs regarding a blockchain-based social media platform.
“I have an idea for a blockchain social media system that does both payments and short text messages/links like Twitter.” Said Elon Musk in one text exchange.
He continued, “Third piece is a twitter-like app on your phone that accesses the database in the cloud. This could be massive.”
However, Musk may not need to create a decentralized Twitter alternative thanks to the launch of Diamond, a Web3 social app powered by the DeSo blockchain.
Diamond is the first platform ever to host its content and social graph on a decentralized blockchain.
By publishing content to the DeSo chain, writers, and creators can own and control their content the same way they own and control their Bitcoin. This means t...

The DeSo Foundation just released its roadmap to decentralize social media
The DeSo Foundation announces the release of their ambitious roadmap to decentralize social media and build The Social Layer of Web3.
Milestones on the roadmap will be executed over the next 2 quarters to solve the major problem with social media today.
“Most people don’t realize that social media is more centralized than the financial system was when Bitcoin was invented. Only a handful of companies currently control what we see and do online. We can solve this problem by decentralizing social media and storing all content on a blockchain.” said Nader Al-Naji, the founder of DeSo.
The roadmap release comes as new messages emerge between Elon Musk and Jack Dorsey, showing his idea for a blockchain-based social media protocol that does payments and short text messages.
The two billionaire entrepreneurs discussed how Twitter would be better off as an open-source protocol funded by a foundation instead of a company. Dorsey expressed regret over making Twitter a company calling it an 'original sin.'

[PRESS RELEASE - Denver, Co, 26th September 2022]
DeSo, a new blockchain backed by Coinbase, Sequoia, and Andreessen Horowitz, has announced its integration with MetaMask. As a result, millions of Ethereum users can now enjoy one-click access to encrypted on-chain messaging and a full Twitter-like feature set.
DeSo’s integration with the leading web3 wallet effectively turns MetaMask into a full-fledged decentralized social network. It also paves the way for DeSo to become the cross-chain social layer for all web3.
DeSo Founder Nader Al-Naji said: “Existing blockchains cannot store content efficiently. It costs about $50 to store a 200-character Tweet on Ethereum and about fifteen cents to store it on Solana, Avalanche, or Polygon. In contrast, DeSo is one ten-thousandth of a cent, making it the first blockchain capable of disrupting storage-heavy applications like social.”
MetaMask users will gain access to gas-less profile creation, posting, following of other users, a fully decentralized on-chain follow graph, and much more. Thanks to the integration, a MetaMask user on Compound could send an encrypted message to someone currently on Uniswap and that user would receive the message via DeSo.
Similarly, a user on OpenSea could leave a comment on an NFT and have it appear on other platforms where that NFT is listed like Rarible or SupeRare. This system works even if one user is on Polygon network and the other is on Ethereum.

|Decentralized Social Media Project BlueSky Says it Is Independent of Twi...
BlueSky, a project funded by Twitter to build a decentralized standard for social media, has stated that the company is not controlled by the company following Elon Musk's purchase.
BlueSky Operates Independent of Twitter
In a tweet thread on April 25, BlueSky stated that although it was funded by Twitter, the social media platform does not hold any controlling stake in the platform. BlueSky also clarified that Twitter's funding came with one condition, that the project carried out 'research and develop technologies that enable open and decentralized public conversation.'
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey first announced the creation of BlueSky back in December 2019, indicating that the plan was to 'develop an open and decentralized standard for social media.'
Later in August 2021, Jay Graber, a former developer for the privacy coin Zcash, was appointed to lead the BlueSky initiative. In February 2022, the project became a public benefit limited liability company (PBLLC).
At the end of March 2022, Graber announced the project's first team members who had Aaron Goldman as a security engineer, and Daniel Holmgren and Paul Frazee as protocol engineers.
BlueSky, which has Dorsey as a member of its board, revealed that the initiative has received funding worth $13 million, to be used for research and development.

|DeSo to Push Its Tech Breakthrough Hypersync: a Fast and Scalable Way to...
[PRESS RELEASE - Lakewood, United States, 25th April 2022]
The decentralized social media landscape is changing rapidly as Elon Musk closes in on his bid to buy Twitter. More and more people are looking for a change as they are tired of 5 companies owning the world's information.
These big tech incumbents dictate what content we consume, whether we like it or not. While several other blockchains clamor to provide a solution, DeSo already has a growing ecosystem of 200+ social media applications.
“To power a financial application, all you need to really store is a few account balances for each user. In contrast, to power a social application, you not only need to store every post, like, follow, and much more, but you also need to index that data so that you can answer queries like 'who is this person following' or 'what are this person's recent posts?' This is something that blockchains have historically been incapable of at scale.” Founder Nader Al-Naji said.
DeSo is set to push their much anticipated Hypersync upgrade live that is orders of magnitude faster than traditional block synchronization.
What is Hypersync?
Hypersync is a fast and scalable way to download a blockchain. Traditional blockchains aren’t designed for decentralized social media apps because they’re too expensive.
DeSo engineer Piotr Nojszewski explains “Hypersync is a new approach to node synchronization designed for infinite-state blockchains that are orders of magnitude fast...

[PRESS RELEASE - Denver, Colorado, 29th March 2022]
DeSo Blockchain announces they have surpassed 65 Million transactions on their network. At the time of this writing, the DESO coin (which is already listed on Coinbase) was up +80% on the news according to CoinGecko. This milestone comes at a time when one of the most influential individuals on the planet is tweeting about decentralizing social media.
Elon Musk recently ran a Twitter poll asking if Twitter's algorithm should be open source. 82.7% of the 1 million participants responded with ‘yes’. A quick click into Elon's replies saw people urging him to build his own solution to address this problem. However, that may not be necessary with the announcements that DeSo is making this week.
On top of 65 Million transactions across 1.5 Million user accounts, DeSo is also announcing an exciting upcoming update to their consensus model from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake, as well as a new platform for launching DAOs called DAODAO.
“With these new updates, we move closer to a world in which social media is not controlled by three centralized companies, but instead, is owned by the users and creators of the network,” said Nader Al-Naji, the Founder of DeSo.
For those who are unfamiliar, DeSo is a new layer-1 blockchain built to scale decentralized social applications to billions of users. People can build social apps on DeSo in the same way they build financial apps on Ethereum.
