Twitter being taken over by musk creates a lot of controversy, this got me wondering this morning, could we right now on top of threefold create an alternative and more…
would the combination of
- mastodon (twitter alternative)
- discource (this forum software)
- peertube (youtube alternative)
be a good way for people to build out their social networks on top of threefold
how would it work?
- threefold provides real decentralized infrastructure
- we could use the TFT for rewarding people running these servers (from 3.8 onwards we have the billing capabilities for this)
- we use activity-pub (which is already used by mastodon & peertube) as underlying federation protocol, we would have to extend discource to support it.
- we use our threefold connect as identity management & single sign on
- we use our planetary network to make sure all servers can communicate to each other even if there are internet hick ups
- we use our weblets techno see https://play.grid.tf/ to make it super easy to get started
towards the future our own digital twin can support activitypub as well.
We can then add the following to the mix soon:
- https://funkwhale.audio/ = A social platform to enjoy and share music
- https://pixelfed.org/ as photo sharing app
- gitea as github alternative (with activity pub integration at one point in time)
All integrated with threefold connect for single sign on and authenticity
the future (some ideas)
Ofcourse all of this needs to go together with what we are working on with our digital twin.
We are thinking about creating a micropayment network using our digital twin techno, this could allow easy ways for people to contribute and pay for their social network activities.
What if digital currency wallets can seamless integrate with above mentioned federated applications, we believe this can be done safely and easily using our digital twin concept.
some questions, would be nice to get your feedback
- do you think this is a good idea?
- are there other apps we should integrate and why?
- would you consider granting some threefold tokens to make this happen?
