The next-gen decentralized social network

Everyone’s audience is bigger than ever

Sola doesn’t use the concept of following. It spreads information like a viral disease to the most interested users, applying AI algorithms combined with users reactions. Quality content can easily reach the whole Sola user base. Users post news, stories and entertainment cards, Sola takes care of the rest.

Every user earns on their content

Sola generates revenue from advertising, user payments and partnerships and splits it with users, providing a strong financial incentive to use the service and create quality content, that results in further revenue increase. The Sola economy is powered by SOL, a utility token with a monetary function, that allows to reward users and sell services in efficient and transparent manner.

Decentralized, immutable platform

Any user can host Sola node on their computer; they’ll receive a reward for each post delivered to the end user. Decentralized architecture makes Sola nearly immune to blocking and censorship, while keeping costs low. Without a central authority, once launched, the network cannot be shut down.

Consumer product: mobile, simple, addictive

Sola app, the first app built by the core team, serves as a central hub of the Sola ecosystem, attracting a mass audience for the developers' community apps.
