Is Friend.Tech Dead? Can This New SocialFi Platform Be the Next Big Thing in Crypto

SocialFi platform went viral across Twitter after rolling out its beta on August 11th but since then, has been declared ‘dead’ by some media outlets after its volume and inflows declined.

Cointelegraph, CryptoNews, and even sites outside of the cryptocurrency space, such as TechCrunch, have run headlines on how the ‘hyped decentralized social app’ is losing steam and ‘dead,’ with tanking activity and a 95% drop in transactions.

What Is SocialFi?

SocialFi combines decentralized finance (DeFi) with social media, adding a way for social media users to earn rewards in cryptocurrency.

In the spirit of decentralization, it also involves retaining ownership of their content and data – unlike traditional social media platforms that own users’ personal information and often fail to safeguard their privacy.

How Does Work?

Below is an introduction to from new analytics platform, which combines aspects of SocialFi, revenue sharing and a trading dashboard.

Built on Coinbase’s new blockchain Base, is a trending SocialFi platform that intertwines social media with its innovative share-based system. is not downloadable on the App Store or Google Play to avoid iOS and Android regulations and having to share revenue with those centralized companies.

To use, new users instead create an account on with their Twitter (X) profile, in a simple registration process.

They then issue shares of themselves and allow followers to invest in them, which grants the shareholders the ability to send them private messages.

The value of a user’s shares rises as the demand for access to a user’s DMs increases – for example if an account is sharing valuable trading alpha exclusively for their shareholders. vs Other Platforms

Platforms like X’s ‘subscribe’ feature, Patreon, or SubscribeStar allow followers to access exclusive content by paying a regular subscription fee.

In contrast, involves ways for followers to profit by buying shares in the creators they enjoy, and later selling those shares in the future if they wish when their value has appreciated. The direct messaging features also afford a greater level of direct contact than typical platforms.

Is Dead? deducts a 5% fee for every share transaction. This approach proved profitable initially, as it earned the creators Ethereum equivalent to $1M in a single day.

Since its launch last month activity has dropped, causing some crypto news sites to ask if interest in will die out.
