Blockchain for Social Finance

Subsocial is uniquely positioned as a blockchain custom-built for social networking that is part of the rapidly growing Dotsama ecosystem

Core Features

Serverless Public Timeline

The classic social timeline, but you can put the entire app on IPFS and remove the need for a centralized host, like AWS


Subsocial is censorship-resistant at the chain-level, but users can set rules for their own spaces. Think of a Facebook group that has transparent on-chain moderation

Roles & Permissions

Built-in and dynamic roles to manage your community with fine-grained permissions, like Discord

Content creation rewards

Other users can reward you for making great content by sending you donations, subscribing to you, or buying your social token

User governance

Like Polkadot and Kusama, Subsocial token holders are able to govern the Subsocial network by participating in on-chain governance


The Subsocial network owns an on-chain pot of funds for development and promotion of the ecosystem

Monetization without Middleman


Easily send tips or setup a subscription

Smart Contracts

Smart contract functionality will allow for Social Finance and advanced payment options


Turn your posts on Subsocial into NFTs, and rent or sell them to others

Promoted Comments
