Why sign in?

Q: Peepeth is asking me to sign in, but it looks like I already have. What's going on?

Congrats! You've saved your account to the blockchain. Peepeth can see your public Ethereum address through MetaMask, and is displaying the associated blockchain account. That's why it looks like you're signed in.

However, Peepeth.com doesn't yet know if you control your Ethereum address. Peepeth.com has some optional features (batch saving, email notifications, Twitter cross-posting) that require us to be sure you really control your blockchain account. That's why we ask you to sign in.

Q: How does sign in work?

When you click "Sign in", a MetaMask window will pop up asking you to "Sign" a message, which proves you control your address. It just takes a few clicks. No email or password are required.

Q: Does signing in let Peepeth execute blockchain transactions on my behalf?

No. It only proves to us that you control your Ethereum address. To read more about MetaMask's "sign" feature, click here.

Q: Do I have to sign in?

No. Signing in gives you access to optional features. Notably, not signing in means you'll have to pay Ethereum transaction fees every time you post or follow.

Passwordless Sign In

Great! Now click "Sign"

Batch-saving

Peepeth is cheap to use because it lets you bulk-save actions to the blockchain. That means you can post and follow on Peepeth.com for free, and then save everything to the blockchain in one transaction.

Some of your actions (like Peeps and follows) are saved to Peepeth.com, but haven't been saved to the blockchain yet. To immortalize them, click "Save to blockchain", and all your outstanding actions will be written to the blockchain in a single transaction.

Peepeth lets you save 15 actions off-chain before you must save them all to the blockchain. That number may later change.

Save to the blockchain

Some actions have not been saved to the blockchain yet. To lock your actions, save them to the blockchain now in a single transaction.

You can take up to 15 off-chain actions before saving them.

Rethinking social media

Peepeth is a social network for those who value mindful engagement and responsibility as much as freedom and decentralization:

  • Peepeth gives you true ownership of your online legacy because data is saved to the Ethereum blockchain. Blockchain data is open, decentralized, and immutable.
  • Features encourage thoughtful content, altruism, and self-awareness.
  • No ads. Peepeth is accountable to users, not advertisers.

Release schedule: web browser version (beta) available now! Easy-to-use web version coming January 2019. Mobile app coming in March 2019.

The Problem

Social media is broken.

Advertising-driven social networks are taking a toll on our wellbeing. They:

  • Invade our privacy
  • Sell our data
  • Have total control and custody of our online identities
  • Manipulate our feeds to keep us online longer
  • Cater to advertisers at our expense
The problem wide small
Look familiar? The problem with social media today.

Peepeth is Different

Peepeth may look familiar, but it's fundamentally different in ways that align its incentives with yours.
  • Data is saved to an open, public, and permanent database (the Ethereum blockchain), so anyone can make a competing interface for your data. Peepeth does not own or control your account or content.
  • No ads: Peepeth doesn't optimize for ad impressions (which introduces perverse incentives).
  • Features encourage positive contribution over quantity. Peepeth encourages you to think before you post or "like", support charity, and learn more about yourself.

Why Blockchain?

The blockchain puts you in control

On Peepeth, accounts and posts (“peeps”) are stored on the blockchain. That gives you exclusive control over your account and content. No intermediary is technically required for you to post or access data.

Luke

No edit or delete (censorship resistant backend)

Peeps are publicly accessible, potentially forever. This creates accountability and gives your words more weight. The result is more considered peeps.

Isaac+no+edit

The datastore is strongly censorship resistant, because of the blockchain's immutability. Note, however, that Peepeth.com will not display content that violates the terms of use. See the "Can Peepeth be censored?" section below for more.

Spam resistant

Peepeth is spam-resistant because it costs money to write to the blockchain. Don’t worry— Peepeth foots the bill for you— but spammers lose their free-peeping privilege, making spamming a relatively expensive prospect.

Raphael+crypto+valley

Transparency

All data is openly stored on the Ethereum blockchain. Anyone can monitor the blockchain to see what Peepeth.com is not displaying. (Those who purchase the "Upholder badge" or higher will be able to easily audit content that is removed from the main feed.)

Alternate apps

Anyone can start their own front-end interface that reads and writes Peepeth data (yourPeepeth.com), because the blockchain protocol is open.

Monetize with tips

Accept tips in cryptocurrency (Peepeth takes a 10% cut).

Verifications

Verify your identity by linking your other social media accounts through the blockchain. Twitter and GitHub currently supported; more coming soon. Peepeth charges a fee in cryptocurrency for verifications.

Other blockchain services

There are many other possibilities for blockchain-based services in the future. Peepeth can interact with other smart contracts (self-executing computer programs on the Ethereum blockchain) to provide decentralized services.

Opinionated Features

Peepeth's mission is to encourage positive contribution, both online and in the world.

Peepeth's features promote thoughtful & responsible content, and discourage hateful, spammy, and thoughtless posts. The goal is a culture of responsibility, respect, and non-reactive engagement.

Charity badge

How can we do good most effectively? Buy a charity badge to support and raise awareness for an important, neglected, and tractable problem: malaria.

Jordan+amf

Your charity badge is shown on your avatar, and bumps you to the top of follower suggestions (giving you serious Peepeth-cred).

Together, we’ve purchases over 1000 long-lasting insecticidal bed nets from the Against Malaria Foundation, the top-ranked charity by several top Effective Altruism charity evaluators. Learn more here.

One "like" per day

Instead of a Like button, Peepeth has the once-per-day Ensō. Its rarity makes it more special to receive, and it encourages the creation of dignified, beautiful, and timeless content. An Ensō is forever; there is no undo.

Enso

Ensō (円相 , "circle") is a circle that is hand-drawn in one uninhibited brushstroke. It represents creativity, freedom of expression, and unity.

Insight badge (in development)

The words you use reliably predict your Big Five personality traits. Learn more about yourself by having powerful artificial intelligence derive your personality traits from your public peeps, and compare your results on Peepeth to your other social media accounts. Keep your results private, delete them forever, or display them on your profile.

This feature is a fun way to learn more about yourself, and to find others you might be interested in following. It's an optional paid service.

Insight credits can also be gifted. One credit entitles you to perform this analysis on your peeps or on your content on another public social media account. Learn more here.

Are you sure?

Peepeth periodically reminds you to review your post before committing it to the blockchain, resulting in fewer typos and greater reflection before posting.

Are+you+sure%3f
Peeps are forever. Reminders give you a chance to reconsider.

Less “me”, more “we"

You can pin a peep to your profile. Unlike Twitter, however, you must pin someone else’s post (not your own). Pinning lets you recognize someone else's contribution.

Code of conduct

Peepeth’s 130-word terms of use is adapted from a discourse on the Buddhist doctrine of Right Speech by Thich Nhat Hanh (in secular form). Peepeth.com's enforcement of the code is transparent.

See the code here.

More on the way

Peepeth is just getting started. There are other novel features in the pipeline.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Peepeth scalable? Will it clog the Ethereum network?

Peepeth has pioneered innovative techniques to batch content in a small number of blockchain transactions. No matter how many users it has, the core functionality will execute a constant number of transactions (not including other optional blockchain features).

What does Peepeth mean?

Peepeth definition

Check this for more (including pronunciation)!

Is Peepeth “Twitter on the blockchain”?

Peepeth may look similar to existing services, but Peepeth is fundamentally different because of its use of the blockchain, its focus on encouraging positive contribution, and lack of reliance on ads.

  • Peepeth optimizes for thoughtfulness, self-awareness, and charity, not ad impressions.
  • Peepeth's back-end is open and immutable. Peeps are forever; which encourages more thoughtful posts.
  • Peepeth doesn't control your account or content (you do).

Can Peepeth be censored?

Peepeth.com is a centralized, opinionated front-end for the Peepeth smart contract. The emphasis here is on cultivating positive contribution, mindful discourse, and self-awareness.

Peepeth.com is not a neutral “anything goes” platform, despite the immutability of its datastore. Peepeth.com is governed by a terms of use, and peeps that are not in accord with it will not be visible, by default, on the main feed.

Moderation is transparent on Peepeth.com, because of the open nature of the blockchain. That keeps Peepeth.com accountable to users, who are free to build and use another front-end for Peepeth data.

If the front-end can choose what content is displayed, how is it different than a normal social network?

No central body controls what gets posted to the blockchain. The data-store is open, so anybody can write to and read from the smart contract without Peepeth.com's permission. If Peepeth.com (or another front-end) imposes a too-strict terms of use policy, users will find out and move to another front-end.

Can Peepeth be used for criminal purposes?

Peepeth’s criminal appeal is limited. Pairing payments and communications on the same channel reveals more info about criminals and their networks than non-crypto communication channels used with crypto payments. Pairing communication and money removes a level of anonymity because of the traceable nature of blockchain transactions.
