​​The Next Web 3.0 Social Media Will Be Built on Solana
  • Seven Seven Six Ventures has identified as the prototypical blockchain for building the next social media network.
  • Solana has gained recognition for becoming the next center of Web 3.0 gaming and decentralized social networking.

Lisbon, Portugal, has become an epicenter of the blockchain space. Between November 7th – 10th, 2021, Solana is hosting its first annual, global conference called Breakpoint. Over the many panels, the common consensus is that Solana is an ideal platform to develop the next internet on.

Solana Is Preferred for Web 3.0

Coincidently, the price of Solana reached an all-time high of $260 on November 7th, the opening day of Breakpoint 2021. What’s more, Solana is gaining a reputation for its future use case, fitting the characteristics upon which Web 3.0 social networks can be built.

Reddit’s co-founder, and the founder of Seven Seven Six Ventures, Alexis Ohanian, stated on Monday, during the Solana conference, that the latter company will be creating a $50 million fund to develop social media projects on Solana.

His statement comes a day after Sam-Bankman Fried also identified Solana as the future hub for Web 3.0 gaming and social media. According to TheBlockCrypto, Bankman stated that social media on blockchain could be “absolutely huge.”

In truth, everyone believes that Web 3.0 can improve the quality of our digital interactions and create a more collaborative internet. However, it would require a decentralized structure to not fall into the same pitfalls as centralized Web 2.0 governors, such as Facebook (NASDAQ:), who rebranded to “Meta,” did.

On The Flipside

  • Reddit is actively looking for a B2B lead marketing manager to handle Web 3.0 and decentralized gaming partnerships.

Why You Should Care?

Ohanian, who created Reddit, firmly believes that this new iteration of the internet should be built from the ground up, and Web 3.0 offers innovators and tech personalities this very possibility.

Tether full audit

Tether auditor company, Friedman LLP, was fined $1.5 million for improper services from 2017 to 2020. This was reported in a press release from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the exchange regulator, the Tether auditing company didn’t properly develop audit procedures in its work for the iFresh product network. The company also didn’t exercise the necessary due diligence in auditing another unnamed company. Although the press release does not explicitly identify Tether, the issuer of the USDTstablecoin, as Tether, Friedman’s firm was Tether’s auditor from just 2017 to 2018.

Tether full audit

Earlier, a New York County court required Tether to disclose the USDT Stablecoin’s collateral and prove the assets linkage to the U.S. dollar. According to the court order, Tether is required to provide the company’s financials, income statements, cash flow statements, and so on. However, the time frame in which Tether must provide the statements is not specified.

The lawsuit is part of a legal battle between investors and Tether’s parent company, iFinex. The plaintiffs believe that Tether manipulated the cryptocurrency market by issuing unsecured USDT with the intention of artificially inflating cryptocurrency prices.
