Diamondhands’ drops 💎

Maeyoncé is really getting us into formation with these hits.

“Today is a very big day. Today we’re doing something the dominant social media companies will never do.

Today we’re making all of the BitClout frontend code public. github.com/bitclout/frontend

Now, not only can anyone run a copy of bitclout.com, but anyone can easily build a *superior version* of bitclout.com.

Moreover, making the frontend code public means any improvement that the developer community makes can be shared by all nodes on the network.

Running a node gives you all the data, and now you can make your node look and feel however you like. No data moats, no walled gardens, no BS. See running a node to get started: docs.bitclout.com/devs/running-a-node

Some small suggestions for what you can build today:

A better messages experience.
An iOS app.
Dark mode (looking at you @tijn).

And of course, if you find any bugs you're entitled to a reward: docs.bitclout.com/devs/bug-bounty

We hope today serves as a reminder of why we're all here.

We're here to build a world where data and code are utilities anyone can build on, not privately-held walled gardens.

The vision: docs.bitclout.com/the-vision

Together, we will make BitClout not the best website, but the best *platform*. All while keeping it totally open and fully decentralized.

Together, we hope to show that the power of open source can overcome the dominant, centralized monopolies.

Now, get BUIDLing!

Hide ya kids hide ya wives cause they scamming errbody round here.
*Lands on “whale tax.” Flips board off the table. Rugs all my friends. Cries.*
The guys hooked us up with a BitsTODAY only exclusive look at the 4 Exotic cars. Which is your favorite?
If their first single isn’t titled “It’s gonna be Mae-beam” then my man Benny needs to start all over. Sorry I don’t make the rules.
We’re really feeling good about this first feel good Friday.

MindClout was born from a desire to do things better. We’re too late on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. But we now have a rare chance to define the system in which we will spend much of our lives from the outset. There’s an opportunity to provide tools, resources and professional support to those who might otherwise not have access. To collaborate with creators and companies who are purpose-driven and realize that without a healthy user, we really have no community at all.

At just over one week old, MindClout is still in its infancy. Our belief is that speaking about mental health as well as vulnerability and authenticity on social media should be. We’re here to break stigmas, start conversations and support the very community which we’re a part of and nurturing. One day, accessing mental health services via social media will be as normal as chatting to a customer service widget. Maybe true decentralization will also mean democratizing access to supporting people’s mental wellbeing?

Creating an environment for a happy and healthy community to thrive will result in a more engaging, inspiring and powerful platform for everyone. Most importantly, normalizing mental health struggles and experiences will have an unimaginable knock-on effect, long after we have logged off for the evening. In the words of @diamondhands quoting Elon: “In retrospect, it was inevitable.” I hope to look back, and say the same thing about MindClout.

We’re onboarding an epic team of passionate advocates, like-minded influential accounts and mental health professionals to contribute to the growth of MindClout. Feel free to DM me if you, or someone you know, would be a great fit.

“@Altruism was inspired by the kindness and generosity that I’ve witnessed on BitClout. The project has a simple mission: to provide investors with a novel approach to charitable giving. 100% of the proceeds from @Altruism are donated to charity and investors choose which charity receives the funds each month. With @altruism, there is now an opportunity to invest in an asset with growth potential while simultaneously contributing to the donation pool. Also important to note, I believe that incorporating philanthropy into the BitClout platform will help to decrease external skepticism and bolster an accelerated adoption.”
