What are you building?
Maskbook and several underlying technology. It’s a layer upon any internet(web2.0) giant and help users preserve privacy, own their data/asset, and join the web3.0 world seamlessly.
Who are you building for?
General public who are aware of the problem of internet (web2.0) today (privacy, censorship, and etc) but have no other place to run – other platforms are either too geeky or still centralized. We would like to create a bridge for general public to migrate to web3.0 without changing their way of using internet. Using maskbook, you can encrypt you post, send crypto/digital asset to your friend on platforms like facebook (no need for Libra.)
How does it advance UX, usability or experiment with a new use case?
UX: all social networks & web 2.0 giants are our UX!
Usability: It’s super easy to use. You can still post/comment/whatever but it will be natively integrated with Web3/blockchain. It’s chain agnostic to users.
New Use Case: We’re open sourced Maskbook Source Code and ready to discover new use case with our community/supporter. We believe our users and other developers will experiment more fancy new use case – such as trade the key to decrypt a post as NFT, etc.
Why is this exciting?
This is probably one of the most efficient way to expand the web3.0 and DAO to real people outside our small crypto community. It can also integrate with all great infra we have today - IPFS/ p2p layer/ DeFi etc.
How much funding do you need and what will it be used to do?
We are requesting $5000 to adding new features and host several meetups.
New features include:
- Bring Maskbook to mobile (already working on this)
- Expand to Twitter/Matsdon etc
- Keep working on DimensionDev/holoflows-kit so that Devs can start to develop DApps integrated with us(as a bridge to Web2).
