My last update

Dear backers, It is very difficult for me to write this update. I have decided that my time to build up SSB, Manyverse, and the new PPPPP protocol is over. Your resolute support is humbling, and for my last blog update, I want to properly e...

About



Manyverse is a social network app using the SSB protocol (Secure Scuttlebutt) where you can write posts and share with friends nearby or over the internet. It's different from mainstream social networks because your data is yours, it lives on your phone, not in the cloud. So there is no login, no company holding your data, no ads, no tracking of your activity, it's just you and your friends! The app is free and open source software, and it will always remain free.


Features:

  • Write posts (even when offline)
  • Share posts to friends over the internet or nearby (with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi)
  • Scroll through many conversations with friends and add your own comments 
  • Likes
  • Preview posts before publishing
  • Save draft posts
  • Block or mute undesired accounts
  • View images in full-screen and pinch-zoom
  • View animated GIFs
  • Customize your profile
  • (More features as we develop the app!)

Check out roadmap of upcoming features. If we have your support as a backer, we may be able to build these features!

Expense policy

The funds in this collective are used for the following purposes (during the year 2023):

  • Each month, Andrew Chou will do at most 32h of work with an hourly rate of 55 USD/h, and depending on the remaining budget, Andre Staltz can invoice for work done at an hourly rate of 35 USD/h.
  • The following invoices can be reimbursed: yearly manyver.se domain renewal, yearly Apple Developer account renewal
