Social media is toxic and controlled by monopolies. Enter Peepeth, a decentralized social network that encourages mindful discourse & effective altruism.
Peepeth: A socially innovative, blockchain-powered app that has been recognized as one of the most innovative and usable decentralized applications.
Peepeth looks like Twitter. However, this Ruby on Rails app's back-end is decentralized (IPFS+Ethereum). Plus, many features are added to encourage mindful discourse.

Peepeth pioneered an innovative mechanism that allows users to save data to the blockchain for free (while retaining proof of authorship).

Peepeth users can buy a Mosquito badge (which gets displayed on their avatar picture) by donating at least $25 to the Against Malaria Foundation (one of GiveWell's top-rated charities). Together, we've created thousands of QALYs (quality adjusted life-years) by donating to one of the world's most effective charities.
Peepeth users are asked to include a "#politics" hashtag with political content, which hides content behind an interstitial.
Peepeth uses a machine learning model to detect content that may violate the terms of service, and asks users to confirm that their post (a "peep") meets the terms of service.
Peepeth won "Best Social Network / Marketplace" at DevCon3 in Prague.
