The two days of BlockShow Asia 2019 conference showed a new blockchain based social network app called Pepo. The founder and CEO of this social media network, Jason Goldberg, recently hosted a keynote to present the product and explain more about it.
According to the keynote shared in the blockchain news today, Pepo has around 15,000 users and more than 45,000 peer-to-peer transactions to its credit. With this, the blockchain based social network aims to change the way we (people) create content for the cryptocurrency community.
“We are already among the biggest DApps in the world. We are now number 12, and we aim to reach the top really soon,” Goldberg said. “Pepo is the result of almost four years of research and listening to the crypto community.”
The app is right now available for download on Apple and Android devices. What’s more important, however, is the fact that it is the first approved decentralized application (DApp) on the Apple Pay.
This means that people can use their cryptocurrencies to tip their favorite creators, buy things on the marketplace and play around with the social media features. There is a built-in crypto wallet, too.
“We are the first DApp approved by Apple Pay, so people can buy our tokens using this payment method among others, of course,” Goldberg also noted.
When seeing Pepo’s website, we can see that they describe themselves as “the people shaping the crypto movement” and that they created “the best crypto user experience ever made.” Pepo, on the other hand, is described as a “blazing fast, simple and human way to make crypto about the people and not just the technology.”
The app was described as a blockchain based social network which lets its users upload short videos – and lets their followers to pay them tips using the built-in wallet. The tokens are used to tip the creators of your choice but can also be spent on the marketplace.
In a way, this allows the Pepo users to also buy Amazon, Apple and different store gift cards using cryptocurrency.
“You can earn much more than likes, but real appreciation,” Goldberg noted.
The blockchain based social network is available for download now and there seems to be a growing community behind it.
