New Decentralized Social Media Application | What is Evrylife

What is the Evrylife Application?

Evrylife is an innovative web 3 social explorer, enabling users to store, organize, find and share content on a decentralized network. Rather than having a centralized authority like traditional social networks, Evrylife operates as a community-governed application and gives users complete ownership and control over their data.

Evrylife is a new decentralized social media application that allows users to build and manage their Web 3 identity, communicate with each other, view content shared by others, purchase items from one another, and collaborate to moderate and govern the platform.

Web 3 functionality for a decentralized social app

Basic features:

  • Account creation/sign in with a web 3 wallet or a variation of user controlled access.
  • Ability to make a post in a generic 1 level topic feed
  • Comment on and Like posts
  • Follow others and get notified of others activity
  • End to end encrypted chats
  • Store the users content on a decentralized file storage network

These are all great features to have and they exist on many different web 3 social applications! Evrylife has these features as well, but this is where the functionality of other web 3 applications pretty much stops and where Evrylife separates itself from the crowd.

New features:

  • Proof of Group Opinion (POGO) - Where users moderate content instead of a private team. Users have the option to participate in 'incentivized' mod tasks where a group opinion is reached through randomized moderators at volume until consensus is reached. A mod score and a community score help to ensure real users are providing quality input.
  • Decentralized storage 'options' - Where users can choose from many different integrated storage solutions as per the specific needs for each piece of content.
  • Multi-chain - Where cross chain transactions occur when buying and selling with users using different chains. Where users social graphs are interoperable and not siloed. Where account access is possible with a blockchain agnostic approach.
  • High level organization directory/explorer - Where a menu system is designed to organize every topic, niche, location, and breakdown so that users can find and organize anything quickly and easily. You can see examples of this here.
  • Tiered subscriptions - Where profiles and channels can enable tiered subscription levels for their connection and followers to receive free or premium content.
  • DAO - Where users will govern the entire app. This will be done through community governed variables (new mint, treasury weightings, etc), mod tasks, and evrylife app improvement proposals.
  • Non Profit Organization - Where no venture capitalists receive token allocations, no private sales occur, and no tokens are allocated to anyone outside of the fair launch auction.
  • No ads - Where the objective of the platform is to be enjoyable and keep users focused on whatever it is they signed on to do.

Why is Evrylife needed?

Centralized applications and private organizations come with many problems:

  • Censorship - where private teams decide what content is suitable for billions of users, often behind closed doors.
  • Intrusive ads - Disrupting your train of thought, productivity, or real purpose for going online.
  • No or minimal privacy - as the Cambridge Analytica scandal showed, the amount of personal data that these companies store about us is simply mind blowing. That's why researchers at the University of Cambridge were able to prove that Facebook knows you better than your own family.
  • Lack of ownership - you never know if one day your personal or business account might just disappear.
  • More issues are touched on in the Evrylife whitepaper.

Decentralized Social Media Content Moderation

A decentralized platform enables users to collectively moderate content by allowing any user to flag and vote on posts using a consensus-based algorithm. This will help ensure that decisions are not biased and the collective wisdom of millions of users is taken into account when moderating content.

Evrylife plans to use a hybrid approach using both moderation automation techniques, AI, and incentivized user performed mod tasks to achieve content moderation. Evrylife application mentions the use of 'proof of group opinion' (POGO) where mod tasks are performed at random and with volume by users who opt-in to do them. When a decision has been voted on by enough users and a consensus has been reached then the decision will go into effect. This is for 'public' content only. The decision to remove such content simply 'hides' it from public view as content is owned by the individual who posted it and lives on decentralized storage controlled by the content creator.

Evrylife is being built with the following Web 3 Protocols/Integration:

Closing Thoughts on Evrylife

The Evrylife Foundation envision's a future where social media is decentralized--where people can freely and securely share their content, ideas, and communicate with one another without needing approval by a third party.

Our money will be safeguarded by blockchain technology and our data will remain in our own hands. Social platforms of the future will be governed by those who use it and will be accessible to everyone.

Developers, thought leaders, token holders, critics, and future application users are all welcome within Evrylife's Discord Server. You can learn more by visiting the official Evrylife Foundation website here.
