A decentralized Twitter built on Ethereum

get it

Instead of receiving "likes" on Twitter, you get "tips" for good content on Leeroy - and get paid real ether.

    I really love this app. No more censoring! What you say is on the block chain forever. Tipping built-in.


    I don't expect my mom to figure this out, but maybe that is a good thing.

    I just love the fact that there is now a real alternative to twitter. You need metamask and some Ethereum to use this app as well as good knowledge of crypto-security best practices.

    -Almost every handle is still available because not many people are on Leeroy yet


    -Not many people are on Leeroy yet, so it can be lonely

    -You have to pay for just about every action

    You can get paid for good content, which incentivizes quality over spamminess. Hoping it takes off!

Good eye, @daviswbaer. While extremely awkward and hard to use, Leeroy is one of the more interesting dapps right now, replicating Twitter's basic functionality on the blockchain, powered by Ethereum. It cost ETH to register an account, post, follow, or take any action in the network. I created an account yesterday, using the Cipher Browser on mobile. Here's my first tweet post..

@rrhoover maybe you should consider a somehow similar system implemented in @productHunt 5.0 to reward hunters and makers? 🤔

Hunted Leeroy thanks to @rrhoover's tweet. Also just paid 3 cents to follow @rrhoover on Leeroy :)

@rrhoover @daviswbaer Founder of Leeroy here, thanks for the hunt! The dapp is pretty rough around the edges but I think the UX for decentralized social is only going to get better from here.
Considering the traction of this on Twitter from PH staff, I expected a lot more upvotage lol

@productpearson I only hunted this an hour ago. Give it a little time :)

Interesting idea... I'm liking some of the neat stuff that's coming out of the blockchain concept that isn't related directly to currency. Question: I'm an outsider to that world, but I've heard that transaction costs in the bitcoin world are getting to be a problem. Is there a point where that'd be a serious issue for something like this as well?

@jonroig That is true. But, the project can be deployed on a test-network such as Ropsten where it could be easy to use and interact with - everyone gets some free testnet coins to test with :)
