Joe Rogan Discusses Peepeth, an Ethereum Based Twitter

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 sounds complicated but it’s cool. I don’t know if it will become the next rage but it is technologically really fun.”

While Jennings discussed Peepeth as the main example for dApps and decentralized ...
