Introducing Web3 with Nader and Misha
90% of internet use is social media.
Yet we don't own our content or social graph.
We have no rights over our digital identity, and we can be de-platformed with a click of a button.
At DeSo, we're on a mission to change all that by creating a blockchain that decentralizes social media and puts the power back into the hands of the people.
However, it's still so early in the adoption cycle.
While DeSo encompasses all the values you look for in Web3, not many people know about us yet.
That's why we're teaming up with Web3 creator Misha da Vinci to help the world better understand Web3 and how DeSo fits into it.
Join Nader Al-Naji and Web3 creator Misha da Vinci next Friday, August 26th, at 1 PM EST.
There are 700+ people expected to be in attendance, but that number should cross 1,000+ by the time of the event.
We will also introduce Diamond to a whole new audience of people and help onboard them into the DeSo ecosystem.
We're planning on doing a Diamond walkthrough so people can sign up and interact with DeSo during the event.
It's free to join.
Jacob Van is back this week with a tutorial on Diamond.
Diamond is a powerful case study for DeSo.
Look no further than the Krassenstein twins, who once had 1.6 million followers on Twitter and didn't make any money from posting.
On Diamond, they make more money with a fraction of the audience and the reach they once had on Twitter.
They often earn hundreds in diamonds daily, giving updates on what's happening in the DeSo ecosystem.

DeSo Ecosystem Updates
DeSo Wins 2nd Place
DeSo won 2nd place on Smoothie.
Smoothie is a Web3 discovery-to-earn platform where you can vote on your favorite projects.
It's like a product hunt but for Web3.
There's a new group of nominees every week, and DAODAO will be on there starting August 22nd.

They now support five different color themes.

Lastly, Gemstori also supports high res PFP, NFT PFP, and cover images.
The Crypto Roundtable
Keep an eye out for Nader on The Crypto Roundtable show with Mario Nawfal.
It's the most prominent Twitter space in crypto, with the biggest names in crypto debating hot topics.
Nader Al-Naji will be there on August 25th, 2022.
Stay tuned for more information as to what time it will go live.
Seelz has partnered with Crew3 for onboarding tools.
The intent is to include DeSo blockchain inside their framework of 10+ chains for Web3 onboarding, engagement, and bounties.
The community asked for a roadmap, and we're putting one together as you read this.
We've accomplished a lot and executed everything we set out to do from our last state of decentralized social video and blog post.
However, we understand it's much easier to keep track if it is visual.
Nader called this out on-chain recently and reiterated our commitment to decentralizing social media as our core mission.
He also mentioned how periods of quiet have been followed by major exciting updates and that this time won't be any different.
We're putting the finishing touches on this revolutionary blockchain advancement and will formally announce it soon.
Everything looks good from our end.
After that, it's simply a matter of a final review and quality check.
