Snovian.space: A Crypto-Based Professional Social Media Platform
Today, several leading social media platforms have been accused of selling user data to third-party sources. Snovian.space breaks the stereotype by being a one-of-a-kind crypto-based professional social media platform.
Users can get rewarded directly with crypto for being contacted by businesses to share their data. Business can pay users directly to acquire user information and in return, the users get rewarded for sharing their information instead of the social media platform.
We spoke with Maryna Nalyvaiko of Snovian.Space to understand what makes Snovian.Space unique and different from other social media platforms. Read on!
What inspired you to start Snovian.Space? Tell us the story.
We were inspired by a flaw we saw with popular social networks. The flaw with all social media platforms is that the users provide their own information to the platform, yet the platform is the one getting paid for this data, not the user. We created a direct payment channel between the users and those seeking data thereby bypassing payments to the platform.
Could you give us an overview of how Snovian.Space is unique or different from other social media platforms?
There are a couple of things that differentiate us from other social media platforms. We’ve built this project in the Ethereum ecosystem, which no one has tried to do before. And we are a B2B professional social media platform that offers direct payment to its users.
Our system is far simpler and easier to understand than anyone else’s. If you are looking for data, you know exactly where your money is going, and if you’re the one selling it, you know who will use it. It’s all about the transparency.
For your ideas to flourish, they need to be presented on a platform that exposes you to a receptive audience. One of the best ways to achieve that and highlight your startup in front of relevant people such as investors, customers, and other startups is to exhibit at mega tech conferences such as Web Summit.
How did the idea to embed crypto come about?
Since we based our social media platform on Ethereum, embedding crypto was a very organic decision. Plus, it’s very easy to create a crypto-based payment system.
What are your future plans for Snovian.space?
In the near future, we will be working on automating certain features on our platform. The biggest one being automating the payment feature, so that the users get paid automatically for performing certain tasks, like filling out a poll or joining a social media channel. We aim to automate the payment distribution.
What are you looking forward to the most at Web Summit? How is Startup League helping you with preparing for your exhibit at the event?
At Web Summit, our primary goal is to introduce some big names to Snovian.Space, and, of course, a chance to present our platform to a wider audience from all around the world is something that doesn’t happen every day.
Startup League offers so many opportunities to startups like us and takes a massive bit of pressure off us. With the Startup League, we know we are supported, we know someone cares about our success. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Why did you choose a .SPACE domain name? How is it helping you develop a unique online brand?
.Space is not just a domain for us. It’s a part of us. Our users and supporters – Snovians, have always been a very tight-knit community. So, when it came to choosing a name for them, it really felt like we were creating a SPACE for them to work, connect, interact, find new people for their own projects that they are passionate about. It’s our space.
