The Rise of Onchain Social
Farcaster. Zora. Sound Tiers. Raver Realm. HIFI Acquisition.
Onchain social took a major turn this week.
Farcaster opened to the public - driving thousands of new users to one of the hottest apps on Optimism. Zora surfaced their referral links and Sound opened Tiers to all artists.
Great music, art and posts are close to free to collect - and now we have an audience to share them with.
Onchain Curator reached 150 accounts as we wrapped up the first month of our grant program to reward curators for driving mints on Optimism.
Safe to say - the tides are turning. After many months of the deep bear - most tourists have been weeded out.
What remains is a loyal community of enthusiasts excited to build the next generation of onchain products.
