BBS is a decentralized network of
user-owned message boards
BBS is similar to a forum, but decentralized as a public service capable of being held on any domain with any choice of operator in the network. Anyone can create a BBS, on any subject, and run it on their own domain allowing control of content policies and revenue sharing between members. Each post is secured by the blockchain ensuring censorship resistance and transparency.
Revenue is automatically shared between the ecosystem
Content Publishers (creators)
Operators (web hosts)
Developers (new features)
BBS is Censorship Resistant
The BBS message board software utilizes blockchain technology as a public database. This means that all BBS users, content and wallets can always be recovered, and can never be deleted.
BBS owners can choose between operators in the network, allowing varying content policies and the ability for owners to choose the operator with content policies aligning with their own.
BBS Network Token
The BBS token is the standard payment method accepted by all BBSes in the network for advertisement space, ensuring financial interoperability between the nodes and a shared incentive system.
BBS token holders have full control over the project through the BBS DAO such as resource allocation, product roadmap and BBS tokenomics. Token holders who stake their BBS tokens in order to participate in the DAO are given rewards and voting power, based on the length of their stake
For the first several years after launch, the Engagement Mining program will run, distributing 50% of the BBS token supply to approved boards within the BBS Network based on their engagement. The distributed tokens provide liquidity to BBSes, allowing them to be able to pay out their users, moderators and other contributors according to their policies.
What does blockchain have to do with Public Services like BBS?
Since the BBS Network runs under a DAO, the service doesn't fully belong to any single entity, such as Facebook or Reddit.
It belongs to the public that uses it, and to the token holders who govern it.
While each BBS Message Board is an independent entity, users can use the same account across each operator, while still maintaining full interoperability between boards in the network, even across different domains
Each BBS owner sets their own board’s moderation rules and content policies, and users choose freely which boards to visit and engage with, to find the board(s) that suit their needs.
BBSes can be customized and enhanced using plug-in modules, promoting user choice and variety, as well as piloting new features and empowering a diverse ecosystem of contributors to thrive without the monopolized control of traditional platforms.
ALL advertisement revenue within the network is shared automatically and transparently between those who add value to the ecosystem, with many ways to contribute and benefit.
To ensure freedom of expression, collaboration and liberty through open database technology.
To establish a public network of online message boards as an attractive and reliable alternative to the solutions offered by today’s Internet giants.
To place the power back in the hands of the content creators and their community of followers, allowing them to earn for their contribution automatically within the ecosystem
