Releap Protocol aims to provide creators with ownership of their relationships with their community, establishing a completely composable, decentralized social network. This is accomplished by permitting users to construct profiles and engage with each other through these profiles. In this context, "Profile" pertains to Releap profiles, whereas "user" pertains to standard crypto-wallets.
The protocol is designed with modularity as a fundamental concept. At present, the Releap Protocol is administered by a multisig, which will eventually transition to a broader DAO that can design, and vote on new modules and expanded features.
Firstly, let's examine the creation and publishing of profiles. Users are required to establish a profile on the hub, after which they receive an NFT sequentially linked to their profile. This NFT regulates the profile, effectively making the user the profile's controller.
Profile owners have the ability to:
- Publish to the profile with three types of publications:
- Posts, which are standard content pieces
- Comments, which are standard content pieces linked to another publication
- Set the profile's image URI
- Set the profile's "delegator", which is an address that can act on behalf of the profile's owner by publishing to the given profile and setting its URI
Releap Protocol involves tokenzation through NFT that are fully composable.
The Releap Hub upgradeable contract is the main point of entry for most interactions within the protocol. It also acts as a Sui contract for profile NFTs, which are created when a user creates a profile.
Releap Protocol is a social graph protocol that is designed to be owned by the community and continuously evolving. It empowers its users to determine how they want their social graph to be constructed and how it can be monetized, if they so choose.
In addition, the protocol is built with modularity in mind, which means that it can support a wide range of use cases. From a user's perspective, this means that they have a new way of customizing and owning their social graph, which would not have possible or affordable with Web2 technology.
