Introducing The Convo Space, The Decentralized Conversation Layer of Internet.

The Problem,

  • A Fragmented Ecosystem: Conversations about a topic on one site are not accessible on others. Different platforms silo these conversations as their key motive is to maximize the time spent on their site.
  • Data Ownership: Most of the data generated from the conversations and the accounts we have on applications like Disqus, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc can be controlled, edited and removed by centralized parties.

Convo tackles these problems by,

  • Introducing an Open-Source Decentralized Conversation Layer that can be used to start instant conversations on any website/mobile-app/NFT/topic in a decentralized and unstoppable manner.
  • Convo is an extensible layer that anyone can utilize to build conversational apps powered by Convo’s API.
  • With Convo users can truly own their data and shows an aggregated view of all the conversations you’ve had powered by Convo’s API throughout the internet on the Dashboard with the ability to delete them.
  • With Convo you can download your all of your own data and erase all of it from every website.
  • With Convo you can monetize your data by creating DataTokens and exposing your Data to the world of DeFi.
  • With Convo you can build you own interface/apps using the API to access user data (only by authentication).
  • With Convo you can further build and verify your decentralized digital identity with support for ENS along with Proof of Humanity and BrightID.

Convo ships as an alternative for Disqus. Using just 1 line of code anyone can replace an existing Disqus widget with Convo. Yup, that simple and yes, I am looking at you Etherscan. This opens up a wide avenue for integrations as now, if people comment about a malicious account on Etherscan, the same comments can be shown on your Wallet when you are sending a transaction to the malicious address!

Conversations on Convo help reduce interaction/conversation cost and becomes a substrate that connects conversations across the Internet independent of the Interface and always owned by the users.

The Convo Space is built using,

โšก Textile Hub, ThreadDB and IPFS for buidling Convo’s REST API and storing user conversations.

๐ŸŒŠ Ocean Protocol for monetizing user data by creating DataTokens. Ocean Protocol for monetizing user data by creating DataTokens.

๐Ÿ†” ENS for creating user recognizable decentralized identities along with Proof of Humanity and BrightID for reputation and Identity verification.

๐Ÿ“ฆ Filecoin and for Cold Storage and Syncing Backups of data on The Convo Space.

๐Ÿ” Gnosis SDK for Gnosis Safe compatibility.

๐Ÿ”ผ ChakraUI and Vercel for creating and hosting the site, as the API needs a server to run on.
