  • Prominent figures like Defi_Maestro, RookieXBT, Frank degods, Crypto Bitlord, and NBA’s Grayson Allen have joined.

Since its launch on August 10, 2023, social tokenization protocol Friend.tech has been making waves in the global crypto community for its latest offering, which allows X (formerly known as Twitter) personalities to issue shares on its app in exchange for access to a closed group chat.

What is Friend.tech?

Friend.tech is a decentralized social application (dApp) developed on Base Network, Coinbase’s newly launched layer two blockchain. 

In a tweet, Yuga Cohler, a senior staff software engineer at Coinbase, described Friend.tech as a decentralized social media platform for crypto personalities. He also noted that the platform allows users to purchase and sell “shares” of people, which gives them ownership of a share that grants them access to a private chat with that person.

Basically, its purpose is to allow users to engage with their community in a completely decentralized manner with security powered by MPC key technology. 

The application is currently in beta testing, during which it will be distributing points to its users for the first six months. Users are set to receive points every Friday, which started on August 18. 

However, Friend.tech counts activity until Thursday at 11:59 p.m. UTC, as it wants to encourage genuine app usage, and point distribution discrepancies will be addressed.

How does it work?

Friend.tech’s core functionalities are similar to those of messaging platforms such as WeChat groups and Telegram groups. However, unlike these applications, users of the web3 social app must first acquire an invitation code and then link their Twitter accounts.

Upon registration, users can buy or sell keys from any user on the app, including themselves, by paying or receiving the current market price of the key. The price of each key is determined by an algorithm that takes into account the supply and demand of the key, as well as the trading volume and activity of the user. There is no participation fee for buying or selling keys, but there is a 5% transaction fee that is split between the app’s treasury and the user whose key is being traded. 

The token within the app, formerly called ‌Shares, was just recently renamed to Keys. These are tied to the Twitter accounts of personalities that would provide buyers access to private in-app chat rooms with that user.

Accordingly, in the event that users choose to withdraw from the group, they may liquidate their group shares. Basically, on top of its social benefits, joining a particular group in Friendtech also offers prospective financial merit.
