Discussions.app And Telos To Collaborate To Record Twitter And Other Social Media Accounts On The Bl
It has been reported that the first project to come out of the new collaboration will be a decentralized identity system, allowing users to record their accounts and contacts from Twitter and other social networks to the blockchain in the event of a block or ban.
However, in the social-media age, users spend years growing networks and followers on various platforms, although this work can be destroyed by the sometimes arbitrary-seeming decisions of the networks.
As per the report, Discussions.app addresses this by allowing users to migrate across platforms without losing their valuable identities and connections.

Douglas Horn, the Chief Architect of Telos, explained:
“It seems that every few days I see another unique voice de-platformed and the connections they invested years building pulled out from under them like a cheap rug — especially in the crypto community. Discussions.app empowers individuals to secure their own social networks immune to the whims of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.”
Thus, Telos will provide Discussions.app with options for advanced governance and Ethereum Virtual Machines which can run Ethereum-compatible smart contracts with zero transaction fees.
