#1 BuzzClout: Today’s numbers from @bithunt and @designal ⚡️

Item #1 on the menu tonight is an ice-cold dose of stats from @designal and @bithunt. They’re here to let us know what’s going down in the world of social tokens on DeSo. Who’s making moves, gents? 👀

#2 Gas on the fire update ⛽🔥: The first DeSo state of the union 📜

While the core team tries to ramp up DeSo with its $50M Octane Fund for development teams and a new referral team, they’re also leveling up on communication w/ the community 🤝. Yesterday @nader and team published their first-ever ‘state of the union’ so-to-speak, dubbed the “State of Decentralized Social.” Via posts on the DeSo blog, the team notes these updates will provide regular check-ins re: DeSo, taking stock of progress made, and forecasting what’s on the near-term roadmap 🛣️.

Hm… looks like @BitsTODAY has some competition with who is bringing the news. Alright, bet.
Wait, you can't even diamond a post on Twitter? What is this, 1999?
Literally, anything will be better than the existing tutorial tbh. Just throw in a demo vid and allow people to X out of it and we’re cookin’.

#3 UX/UI drops: @nader and co outline the Q4 roadmap 🛣️

What’s been up on the UX/UI front? Nothing immediate. The team is taking their time to get referral round 2 right, likely a prudent move after the challenges faced by the first wave of referrals over the past week.

Community feedback loop = better referral flywheel 🔁
  • “… several high-profile projects launching in the coming months. We will be introducing you to some of them soon.” 👀 (Wen @Gem???) 💎
  • The transition to Proof-of-Stake is still a high priority. Last month @nader noted this would be done by EOY — tbd if that’s still the case 🔜
  • A bridge to ETH!!! This is huge as a wrapped DESO coin would unlock the entirety of the ETH DeFi universe (i.e. anything you need a smart contract, which don’t exist on DeSo, to do. 💥
  • For the blockchain nerds, a scaling roadmap (how to get supported TXN volume to the 5k posts per second that apps like Twitter support?) 📈
We’re gonna associate tf out of all of ya’ll once this baby drops.

#4 General absurdity: DeSo milestones and more 🏆

First and foremost? HUGE congrats to everyone involved, whether core or only peripherally, with the DeSo project. The blockchain hit 50M confirmed transactions yesterday! LFG 🎉🥳. Three cheers for DeSo! 🥂 And thanks @ProsperClout for keeping tabs on this milestone for the squad :) 🏆

Next up: 50M DAUs 🔜
*puts on glasses* *nods head* *tries to look smart by saying things like “will this scale?” and “are we just conflating two different issues?”
DOZ was like “ya’ll thought you can get rid of me that easy?! Try harder next time suckas!”
arrrr mateys, tell cap’n meth to put his shirt back on 🏴‍☠️
Do you know how dope something has to be for Hpaulson to NOT call it absolute trash?! 👀
