In the Joe Rogan podcast (JRE podcast), American singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings and Joe Rogan discussed Peepeth, the Ethereum-based Twitter alternative, which allows anyone to release embedded permanent tweets in the blockchain, without censorship.
During the podcast, Rogan and Jennings went back and forth on Alex Jones' situation, sharing the general sentiment that Facebook, YouTube and Twitter should not have banned Jones, not allowing freedom of speech.
In response, Jennings presented a decentralized social media platform called Peepeth to Rogan, which describes its immutable and anti-censorship characteristics.
"There's this thing called Peepeth, it's an alternative on Twitter, it's only in the beginning, it's a bit like Twitter, but it's built on the back of Ethereum and so every tweet or every message you send about it is embedded in the Ethereum blockchain, "said Jennings.
Merit of Decentralized Systems
As with any decentralized application (dApp), blockchain users can not reverse or alter data that is included in a block, whether it is a transaction or a unique type of information elaborated using smart
Jennings explained that decentralized systems are particularly important as they allow people to initiate activities not monitored or limited by a central authority, unlike most existing platforms.
"You can not delete everything because it's permanently embedded in the blockchain, I think that up to 10 of your messages can be recorded in a block in the Ethereum chain, so you have to pay a penny of it, they give you a Well, to start with, and when someone sends you messages, it's like a microtransaction for you, so you have that kind of balance.
It sounds complicated but it's nice, I do not know if it's going to become the next rage, but it's very technologically funny. "
While Jennings discussed Peepeth as a prime example of dApp and decentralized systems, the merit of distributed networks is abundantly clear. Bitcoin as a consensus currency may allow non-funded regions with poor infrastructure and dApp on Ethereum to allow people to use platforms such as social media and live streaming apps without third-party service providers.
The conflict between Turkey and America, which has the Turkish lira, which has lost more than 50 percent in value, has shown the advantage of decentralized systems in general and the potential of blockchain as an alternative system to all existing centralized systems .
In Venezuela, Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies have begun to become the main payment method for families, professionals and students, due to President Nicolas Maduro's controversial decision to devalue the bolivar national currency by 95% overnight.
Exposure on major platforms such as the JRE podcast is a step towards mainstream adoption for dApps and reaching a wider consumer
But, as he said the creator of Gnosis Martin Köppelmann, so that public blockchain projects such as Ethereum and dApps achieve true decentralization and adoption, decentralized systems will have to depend on one another to create unique products and services.
"The numbers we are interested in are the use of decentralized applications, and as a next step, the number to keep an eye on is DAPP that interact seamlessly with each other and benefit from being on the same platform As a side effect, ultimately the price of Eth will therefore be a function of the demand for the use of applications in this reliable, open and interconnected environment, "he said.
The unchanging, anti-censorship and decentralized nature of the blockchain has already begun to attract the general public, in light of recent events such as the Facebook scandal and the controversy of Alex Jones.
