Last year the Bitcoin Cash community (BCH) hosted a BCH-based social media network called Memo.cash. Since then, Memo has collected a lot of traction with hundreds of profiles and thousands of updates and onchain conversations published in the BCH chain.

Memo's uncensurable posts continue to grow
In April of last year, news.Bitcoin.com reported on the social media platform Memo.cash, a decentralized app based on blockchain technology. The platform offers anyone the ability to create a profile, send messages and send and receive suggestions. Almost all actions on Memo are recorded on the BCH chain using an OP_Return transaction. After the split of the BCH blockchain on November 15th, the creator of Memo decided to open the platform to users on both sides of each chain and now there is also a Memo SV version of the site. Existing users who have not accessed from the fork can use the same login credentials for the SV section of the platform.
Since we first published Memo, there was another social media platform for the BCH chain called Blockpress, but the application was deceased for a while. The memo, on the other hand, has continued to grow with users and the content is constantly being shared. For example, Memo feeds are divided into six sections, which include rankings, polls, discussions, tops, new and archive posts. Like Twitter, when writing a new memo, users can use 217 characters per post. If a person decides to create a survey, he must first create a question (209 characters) and then add two options (184 characters per option) so that people can choose.
Memo users can insert text, video, images and even enter tweets from Twitter on the application. In addition, individuals can search for the registered user index by browsing through a list of profiles that are also divided into different criteria such as the most followed and older ones, showing the first Memo accounts created. The most popular Memo profile is the creator of the platform, with 777 followers, and the first registered account belongs to a user named Jason who has 142 followers.
Poster.cash and Undriter & # 39; s Bitdb
Then there is Poster.cash, a Bitdb-based Memo extension protocol created by the software developer Petar Mitchev. The Poster application allows users to use most of Memo's actions, which are performed in the browser. Poster offers infinite scrolling and the ability to track even certain keywords.
Like the Memo protocol, Poster also offers users the ability to switch between the BCH and SV networks based on their preferences. Because Poster is powered by the developer's Unwriter Bitdb network, it works like a serverless application. Mitchev provided support to Unwriter for the creation of BitDB and Bitsocket e applications known, "I still can not believe I wrote an actual Memo implementation without a server – and it works so well."
Overall, Memo continues to see a lot of people sending non-censurable media and the extensions that people have built around the protocol have made the Memo ecosystem more robust. Of course, with the application serving both networks, there's quite a bit of discussion between both fields when you scroll through the last few weeks of Memo messages. The Memo application also supports hashtags and many people add their favorite tags to posts. The most popular hashtags at the moment are bitcoin, BCH, BCHPLS, roblox and hashwar cash.
