    Subsocial is a new social network project that is built on the highly advanced Polkadot blockchain. They will allocate 16.5 percent of the initial total supply of SUB tokens, or $16.5 million, to the crowdloan if they win the slot. 15 million of those will be distributed as guaranteed rewards. The remaining 1.5 million will be allocated to referral bonuses and distributed in accordance with the referral program’s terms.

    Crowdloan participants may also be eligible for referral bonuses. Each participant will be given a unique referral code that will allow them to earn 15 SUB for every KSM contributed by their referrals, which will be split 50:50 between the referrer and the referee. Any unspent referral funds from the 1.5 million SUB allocation will be returned to the Treasury and applied to the next crowdloan.

    SUB rewards will have a vesting schedule. Upon receipt, 20% of the rewards will be available immediately, while the remaining 80% will vest over the course of the parachain slot lease’s 48 weeks.

    Subsocial as a social network resistant to censorship

    With increased focus on privacy and data concerns on the most popular social media platforms, users are now in favor of greater transparency. As a decentralized hub, Subsocial aims to revolutionize our online engagement. To empower content creators, it provides free expression and community rewards.

    Subsocial distinguishes itself from previous definitions of a social network by constructing it as a social finance protocol and redistributing power to creators. Subsocial can be customized to allow content creators to control their income streams in addition to the current functionality provided by social platforms.

    Subsocial wants to help users create new versions of popular social platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Medium, and others.
