On Joe Rogan podcast (JRE podcast), Joe Rogan and American singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings discussed Peepeth an Ethereum-based Twitter substitute which permits anyone to issue permanent tweets embedded into the blockchain with no censorship.
During the Podcast, Jennings and Rogan went back and forth on Alex Jones condition, discussed that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube should not have forbidden Jones, prohibiting free speech of people. Further, Jennings presented Peepeth a decentralised social media platform to Rogan, defining its anti-censorship and immutable features.
Jennings stated “There is this thing named Peepeth, it’s a Twitter alternative. It’s kind of like Twitter, but it’s built on the back of Ethereum and so every Tweet or every message you send on it is embedded in the blockchain of Ethereum.”
Further explaining the merits of decentralised systems, Jennings said that unlike most existing platforms, decentralised applications are exclusively important as they permit people to start activities that are not checked or restricted by any central authority.
Additionally, he also stated “You can not delete anything because it is permanently inserted into the blockchain. I think up to 10 of your messages can be logged in one block of the Ethereum chain, so you have to pay a cent of it, they give you some, to begin with, and when somebody messages you, it’s kind of like a microtransaction to you, so you have this kind of balance. It may sound complicated but it’s so cool. I don’t know if it will become the next rage but it is technologically really fun.”
However, Jennings stated Peepeth as the main instance for decentralised systems and dApps, the pros of the distributed networks are clear. The dispute between America and Turkey, which lead in the Turkish Lira falling by more than 50 per cent in worth, showed the benefit of decentralised applications and the potential of blockchain to work as a substitute system to all of the decentralised systems in existence.
Exposure on established platforms like the JRE podcast is a step towards attaining a broader consumer base and mainstream adoption for dApps.
Gnosis originator Martin Koppelmann said “The numbers we care about is the usage of decentralized applications. And as a next step, the number to look out for is DAPPs that seamlessly interact with each other and draw a benefit from being on the same platform. As a side effect, ultimately the price of ETH will then be a function of the demand for the use of applications in this reliable, open, and interlinked environment.”
The anti-censorship, immutable and decentralised nature of blockchain has already initiated to appeal to individuals, in light of current events like the Alex Jones dispute and the Facebook Scandal.
