As a musician and an activist, I’ve used social media to varying degrees of success. But we have entered an era in which we are facing a lot of simple obstacles to reaching audiences on our social media platforms, as well as outright censorship and banning. So I’m happy for the chance to speak with two innovators in the blockchain social media landscape. 

Bill Ottman is co-founder and CEO of Minds.com, a crypto social network.

Matt Asher is founder of Before the Ban, a decentralized service for online identity preservation.

Through their projects, they are pushing back on the limits and failures of social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, and concretizing values of user control, decentralization, free speech, and privacy.

Matt recently released the white paper for Before The Ban, so I hope people will check it out. And I’m already making my 2nd post on Minds.com for this episode!

Are you frustrated by your user experience on social media? Have you thought about using alternative platforms? Why or why not? Have you ever been banned? Do you have trouble gaining the reach and attention for your posts that you want? Comment below!

Finally, a quick message from our sponsor.
