Decentralised Self-Governing Social Network
All data and multimedia uploads are stored within the encrypted decentralised storage solution that is built and maintained by Sociall.
The team is already working on a solution that utilises IPFS, a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol, for further decentralision of the platform.
Sociall is slowly moving the entire platform to self-governing. This means that users on Sociall will be able to assist with keeping the platform clean and safe by removing spam and offensive posts.
This “self-governing” feature will give the power back to the people instead of having all power sit with the owning entity. All users that participate will be compensated in SCL for their services.
Sociall account wallets will be created through a decentralised smart-contract process where there is no owning entity.
The setup entity, being Sociall, will not have control over any funds kept in a user’s account wallet and will never be able to process any transactions on behalf of the user – making it completely decentralised.
Simple wallet SCL top-ups with crypto and fiat are in the roadmap.
Facebook Migration Tool
The team is currently working on a Facebook migration tool to make the move over to Sociall as painless as possible. Data such as your user profile, recent posts, and friends list can all be ported over to Sociall.
Read more about this tool and its in-depth details here.
A majority of Sociall’s projects will be moved to open-source just after mid 2018.
The project may eventually open some repositories up to pull-requests, although this is yet to be confirmed. Outside developers will be able to contribute to the development of Sociall by creating pull-requests on the public repos. If the Sociall development team reviews the request to be of benefit to the platform, then it will be approved.
Open-sourcing all of Sociall’s systems displays transparency to the community.
The platform utilises its own easy-to-use cryptocurrency, called SCL. It is used to pay for all goods and services rather than traditional money.
Think of SCL as the native currency of the platform instead of using multiple different currencies that usually come with conversion fees. SCL is an ERC20 based token on the Ethereum blockchain.
SCL is tradable on many popular cryptocurrency exchanges.
Sociall believes that privacy is a fundamental human right.

- Anything that you delete from Sociall is deleted permanently. We do not store copies.
- We do not use facial recognition technology.
- No snooping or surveillance on your activities or data.
Don’t believe us? Wait until we’re open-source on GitHub in the coming months to see for yourself.
