Subsocial is a new social network project running on a very advanced Polkadot blockchain. Upon winning the slot they will allocate 16.5% of the initial total supply of SUB tokens or 16.5 million to the crowdloan. Of those, 15 million will be distributed as guaranteed rewards. The remaining 1.5 million will be allocated to referral bonuses and distributed according to the terms of the referral program.
Crowdloan participants may also earn referral bonuses. Each participant will receive a unique referral code, allowing them to generate rewards of 15 SUB per KSM contributed by their referrals, which are split 50:50 between the referrer and the referee. Any unused referral funds from the 1.5 million SUB allocation will be returned to the Treasury and used for the next crowdloan.
SUB rewards will be subject to a vesting schedule. Upon receipt, 20% of the rewards will be available immediately, while the remaining 80% will vest over the 48 weeks of the parachain slot lease.
Subsocial as a censorship-resistant social network
With increased attention around privacy and data concerns within the most popular social media platforms, today users are in favor of enhanced transparency. Subsocial, as a decentralized hub, aims to revolutions our online engagement. It offers free expression and community rewards to empower content creators.
Subsocial differentiates itself from any previous definition of a social network by building it as a social finance protocol and putting the power back in the hands of creators. In addition to the current functionality offered via social platforms, Subsocial can be customized to allow content creators to control their income streams.
Subsocial wants to assist users in developing new versions of some of the widely used social platforms like Twitter, Instagram, Medium and others.
