Our digital identities have become integral to our self-conception — inseparable from our sense of self. Social media has enabled us to find new opportunities, join like-minded communities, meet some of the most influential people in our lives, and express our true selves in a way never possible before. Web3 has empowered us to dare to dream of a new future for social media, where we are in control of our content and identity, where our communities are safe from misinformation and spam, and where trust is peer-to-peer and not facilitated by a centralized system. Decentralized technologies and protocols are re-architecting this digital social media experience, and the CyberConnect team is at the forefront of this new frontier.

Phaver is thrilled to announce its integration with CyberConnect — a decentralized social graph protocol with identity sovereignty for mass adoption and network effects. With this integration, 190,000+ ccProfile holders can use their identity in Phaver’s multiprotocol Web3 social app, while CyberConnect’s scalable storage solutions also allow many of Phaver’s 170,000 users to finally create their first on-chain social profile.

On the same mission

Phaver’s mission is to provide a gateway to Web3 social for everyone. Phaver’s Web2.5 approach allows anyone to discover and follow Web3 content without a wallet or profile while offering a fully on-chain experience for those who are ready for it. With the new integration, anyone can experience the world of CyberConnect. Allowing off-chain follows of ccProfiles offers users a unique way to get started on their Web3 journey. When ready, users can log in with their ccProfile or soon mint a new one in-app to take advantage of all the on-chain features and decentralized ownership. All CyberConnect activity will also be included in Phaver’s reward program, allowing one to earn the upcoming Phaver tokens before they launch. Soon, Phaver users will be able to directly message each other across different social protocols.

Jonathan Lintala, co-founder and CEO of Phaver, said:

“This partnership is a crucial step for Phaver to unlock our multiprotocol vision and become the de facto social app for all Web3 users regardless of the network or ecosystem they are most engaged with. CyberConnect is on a mission to connect everyone on Web3, and it was a no-brainer decision for us to integrate with their robust social network infrastructure to bring decentralized social to the masses. By welcoming 190,000+ ccProfile holders into the Phaver world, we are strengthening our position as one of the largest Web3 social apps in the space and getting ready to capitalize on the massive potential and give people back the ownership of their social lives.”

Wilson Wei, co-founder and CEO of CyberConnect, added:

“Web3 social is built for the masses. As we increasingly integrate our lives into the internet, a better, self-sovereign iteration of social networking is what everyone deserves. In line with this shared mission, we are excited to forge this partnership with Phaver. Phaver’s easy onboarding process offers everyone an easy and important first step into the world of identity ownership and content monetization. They’ve earned their name as the gateway to Web3 social. CyberConnect is built with mass adoption in mind, and with this integration, we expect our hybrid on-chain and off-chain design to further help Phaver deliver social features at scale and create more equitable, meaningful, interoperable and seamless Web3 social experiences for the existing 170,000+ Phaver users, 190,000+ ccProfile holders, and the mass users to come.”

Connected 2023 hackathon

Phaver will be completing the integration with CyberConnect as part of our submission for Connected 2023, a Web3 social hackathon by BNB Chain and CyberConnect. As a user, you can show your support by voting for Phaver on the hackathon project leaderboard and earn prizes. Each vote will be minted as a unique W3ST, (Web3 Status Token) — a soulbound token that can be showcased on your Link3 profile.
