Two years ago, an on-chain social network called memo.cash was launched, and the application has developed a lot since then. The Memo team revealed on Tuesday that the platform is now available on iOS phones through the App Store. Apple users can now connect to social networks that etch user content onto the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.
In the past few years, especially with the rise of platforms, non-censorable forums, immutable streaming video applications and on-chain social media projects have been developed. In cooperation with Big Tech, global governments have successfully censored objections to the status quo on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.
A specific decentralized application called memo.cash skips all the nonsense because it allows users to post content to the BCH chain. Since almost all actions are performed by writing transactions to the BCH blockchain, the stored data allows for censorship-resistant social media compared to platforms operated by the Big Tech giant.
The memo team announced on November 3, 2020 that the app is now available through Apple’s App Store. This means that anyone with an iPhone can download an on-chain social media application that binds content to a decentralized cryptocurrency network.
Notes work the same way as in a browser, users can simply register a new account or log in with their existing credentials. In addition to using the BCH chain, the memo.cash application can also be used with the cryptocurrency bitcoinsv (BSV).
Novices should understand that memo.cash only needs a small portion of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to perform things like publishing content or updating configuration files. By depositing satoshis into the wallet address of the profile, or even taking out a small portion of satoshis from the tap, the user’s leverage on memo.cash is less than that of BCH.
Remarks are similar to Twitter in that it only allows 217 characters in a given post. However, just like Twitter, users can not only post topics, but also post videos, pictures, and URL links. Note that users can also use multiple options to initiate polls. Unlike Twitter, which is known for its blatant censorship in 2020, the content on the chain of the Memo application is immutable.
In addition to the publishing function, users can also access the native wallet in the Memo application, which allows users to send BCH and SLP tokens.
The main feed has several different filters, and these notes allow Memo users to choose between “hot” and “new” topics, as well as refresh the page in the upper right corner of the screen. Although newbies to the memo.cash app will have to browse and browse the social media apps on the chain, experienced Memo users will get the gist of the app faster.
Of course, on Reddit, the new iOS mobile version of memo.cash is welcomed by the r/btc community. “Congratulations to the memo team,” a BCH supporter wrote on Tuesday, congratulating the developers.
