Soon, builders can embed decentralized social at a low, predictable cost.

When blockchain technology is applied to the high-volume, low-value transactions of social networks—messages, posts, and likes—the cost quickly overwhelms business models. Yet blockchains can unlock an exciting new era of social networking apps that enable people to interact in a public digital space and retain agency over their data. Frequency changes the way blockchain transactions are priced so blockchain technology can be leveraged for social networking at the scale of network effects.

Frequency delivers a new pricing model for building predictable, sustainable businesses.

Frequency transforms how blockchain transactions are priced. Instead of paying per transaction, builders reserve an allocation of capacity at a predictable low cost—with capacity replenishing in regular increments. Frequency can be leveraged by Web3 natives, or by Web2 businesses that want to tap into new Web3 features and revenue streams.

  • Shifting to a new economic model

  • From high, volatile costs

    Gas fees and network congestion drive costs

  • To low, predictable cost

    Costs stabilized via a new economic model

  • From operating expense

    Business costs managed by-the-transactions

  • To business asset

    Stable, replenishing allocation of transaction capacity

Frequency unlocks an entirely new class of use cases.

Frequency makes it possible for builders to lock in replenishing capacity instead of managing often high and volatile transaction expenses. This delivers an essential foundation for new business models, and unlocks the use of blockchain technology for an entirely new class of transactions—from social networking and beyond.

Now the technology can be cost efficiently used for a new range of high-frequency, massive-scale decentralized apps and services. This ability-to-scale is not only critical to widespread adoption of Web3, but also for supporting the requirements of traditional businesses seeking to transition to people-centric practices, such as giving users control over their own data.

Frequency builds on years of development in decentralized social

We believe that a public social graph completely disconnected from financial incentives is the first essential piece of infrastructure required to unlock the true potential of social networks. The Decentralized Social Networking Protocol (DSNP), in development for nearly three years and with a completed end-to-end proof of concept—makes this possible.

DSNP facilitates a secure, open source, universally accessible social graph that is not linked to any financial incentives by crypto tokens or private company database servers. The decoupling of financial incentives from the core protocol makes DSNP distinct from all other blockchain-based social networking projects. We believe this approach is essential to support a healthier third generation of the web.

“Web 3.0 needs a universally accessible social graph to be successful. DSNP presents a clear path toward providing this crucial service.”

Polkadot uniquely supports this breakthrough

Polkadot's shared consensus model opens DSNP to scaled growth. As the first production-grade implementation of DSNP, Frequency leverages Polkadot's relay chain to deliver block validation at a fixed price. Future improvements in Frequency will continue to lower cost in the future.
