Web 3.0 features?

Is Discourse going to make the transition to Web 3.0 or will it remain a Web 2.0 application? For example, will Discourse move to the blockchain where it will be possible to build DAOs based on Discourse with social tokens, NFTs and cryptocurrencies?

Blockchain, DAO, social tokens, NFT, cryptocurrency. :scream: What?
Discourse is a forum, not a bank.
I don’t understand any of these acronyms, though, I’m so 1.0. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Discourse goal is:

to raise the standard of civilized discourse on the Internet through seeding it with better discussion software - source

How do you envision

helping we (royal “we”) further achieve our goal?


Wasn’t 3.0 the Semantic and Decentralized Web?

To that extent you could argue Discourse already is very much Web 3.0, even tough we are still working on Discourse 2.8 :stuck_out_tongue:

Yes, Discourse has been web3 for a long, long time:

  • decentralized (not one Giant Facebook To Rule Them All, but millions of smaller communities)

The other area of interest is

  • micropayments – letting artists and others get paid for their hard work.

Welcome to our world, @openmind! We’re looking at two things at the moment

  1. Verifying avatars as paid-for NFTs via a plugin
  2. Login via Metamask (or other similar APIs)
