Releap Protocol

What is Releap Protocol?

Releap Protocol is a protocol built to harness your Web3 social graph on the Sui blockchain. The protocol aims to give creators the freedom to retain ownership over the connections they have built with their audience by creating fully customizable, user-owned social graphs. The protocol is designed with flexibility of creation in mind, while preserving user-owned content and social connections.

What is a social graph?

Social graphs consist of millions of users across the world, yet social graphs on Web2 are incredibly centralized, defeating the purpose of this immensely powerful network of people. Web2 networks all create their own databases and read from this singular and central database. More importantly, creators do not own their social connections, the network does. This means that creators cannot control, move or harness these social graphs outside of the singular network on which they publish content. This greatly diminishes the essence of these connections and undercuts the creators because of whom they exist.
We’re building Releap Protocol to work as a communal social blueprint where users can own their individual connections and various applications can build upon this blueprint. This solves mainly two problems: (a) users can own, move and utilize their social connections across a variety of applications throughout the chain and (b) social applications can co-exist and take advantage of a collaborative database allowing them to focus on building for innovative and niche use cases.

How does Releap Protocol compare to existing social networks and graphs?

Releap Protocol aims to address key issues with existing social media networks, which rely on centralized databases that do not allow for portability. Users' profiles, friends, and content are locked to specific networks and are owned by the network operator. This results in a zero-sum game where networks compete for users' attention.
Releap Protocol offers a solution by providing a user-owned, open social graph that can be used by any application. Since users own their data, they can bring it to any application that uses the Releap Protocol. Creators no longer need to worry about losing their content, audience, and income due to the policies and algorithms of a specific platform. Moreover, each application that uses the Releap Protocol benefits the entire ecosystem, turning the zero-sum game into a collaborative one. Developers can create meaningful social experiences without relying on feedback mechanisms to retain users' attention.
