An open decentralized society isn’t built overnight. For all the grand schemes of community visions, it starts with every little piece of humble yet vital participation in community discussions, votes, AMAs, campaigns, and hackathons. And by spending your time and effort, your most valuable and naturally scarce proof of work, you are also constantly contributing to a collective existence, while sculpting your identity. “I was here”, that’s part of you carved in time and that should be properly recognized.

We are beyond excited to introduce Link3 Event Planner, a powerful toolkit designed to enable teams to connect to their top community members with Web3-native events, as the first pilot use case for W3ST (Web3 Status Token), CyberConnect’s token standards designed to carry the significance of status and to construct the layer of trust and verifiable identities from the bottom up. (More details to follow with protocol upgrades.)

With Link3 Events, users can now easily join the top events in Web3, as you own and sculpt your verifiable identities through community participation. Projects and teams can now streamline and improve their events organization, analysis, and reward issuance to enhance community engagement in Web3-native ways.

Link3, A web3 social network of verifiable identities, is currently in its Alpha 1.0 stage and only whitelisted addresses or those with invitation codes can start building their verified profiles. As we roll out more product features, we’re also gradually opening up the whitelist and giving the community more ways to obtain invitation codes.

Read on to see how you can get involved and what to expect in the coming weeks.

In a supposedly hyper-connected world, we still find it frustratingly difficult to connect to the right person or to put trust in whom we are really connecting to. There’s something we haven’t figured out yet.

You see it everywhere. When reaching out for new connections, people nowadays use Twitter, Discord, and LinkedIn DMs. But due to the lack of effective identity gating, one usually ends up getting not connected at all or waking up every day to an inbox flooded by random DMs and spam. The prevalence of scams and lack of context further corrode the goodwill we have for anyone behind the screens, leaving us with a haunting sense of distrust that strangles potential connections and collaborations. This leads to dire consequences on the security side: in the US, losses due to identity thefts and related frauds grew from $1.8 billion in 2019 to $3.3 billion in 2020 and $5.8 billion in 2021 (FTC, 2022). The problem still continues to grow fast as more of our lives move digital in response to the global pandemic.

We are missing something fundamental here - the web lacks a layer of identity that carries trust and is enriched with meaning.

The digital identities we currently have usually lack dimensions and mostly exist as only identifiers, like number entries, on many segregated centralized platforms. There are no easy ways for users to verify the claims and attributes of a specific identity and no network for discoverability and real connectedness on a web level.

Today we are excited to announce our Series A totaling $15 million. The raise was co-led by Animoca Brands, a global leader in gamification and blockchain with a large portfolio of over 170 investments, and Sky9 Capital, a venture capital fund dedicated to supporting disruptive technologies and outstanding innovators. CyberConnect's composable social graph helps developers easily bootstrap network effects and build personalized social features in dApps, while returning social data ownership to users.

The portfolio of investors also includes Delphi Digital, Protocol Labs, IOSG VenturesTribe Capital, GGV Capital, Spartan Group, Amber Group, Polygon Studios, and SevenX Ventures. CyberConnect will use the resources to further build its decentralized social graph protocol, add new members to the team, and onboard a variety of Web3 projects.

“In Web2, companies with the largest social network own users’ social graphs and build walls around them to stem competition and advance corporate interests,” said CyberConnect Co-founder, Wilson Wei. “Instead of building moats on user data, Web3 developers should be empowered to prioritize building better services and content. All users should be enabled to travel between applications with their own social graph as part of their Web3 identity. For this vision, CyberConnect is building the social graph infrastructure for Web3.”

We are thrilled to announce that SphinxUp, an NFT financial infrastructure asset pricing protocol​​, and CyberConnect have partnered up to build toward their shared vision of Web3, a decentralized and fair internet where users control their own data, identity, and asset.

This partnership will bring more utilities to CyberConnect while its social graph protocol will be utilized by Eyesfi, one of SphinxUp's products, to establish social relationships and introduce a decentralized IM system into the future NFT community.

“As an important component of the Web3, the NFT ecology represented by SphinxUP will establish a longer-term, more in-depth partnership with the social ecology represented by Cyberconnect. We believe that in the near future we will be able to create numerous incredible innovations with massive adoption together in this space”.

When we register on a social media platform for the first time, it’s almost an instinct now to follow a recommended list of celebrities, topics you’re interested in, and sync your phone contacts or Facebook for friends you may know. We take these recommendation algorithms for granted so much that we ignore the question: how are these lists generated?

Of course, we agreed to grant them access to our personal data, who we are and how we are related to other people. While connecting us to our friends, these social media platforms are also collecting, storing, securing, and monetizing on these data, our data, for advertising revenue. And that, is a problem. Trying to provide solutions, a number of startups are able to leverage blockchain technology and decentralized storage systems to not only conceptualize but realize Web3 standards and applications, and CyberConnect is one of them. A decentralized social graph protocol, CyberConnect powers the Metaverse and Dapps with better human interaction and connection.

What do you mean by social graph?

An important chunk of data that we’re giving up to centralized Web2 social media are our social relations, who we’re connected to and how. Based on these individual connections, social media giants such as Facebook are able to create a social graph, a global mapping of connections, some of which we might not even be able to trace. For example, John’s mother’s sister-in-law’s niece is Jane’s husband’s friend’s wife, or Donald’s uncle’s eldest grandson is dating Daisy’s colleague’s daughter, etc. You get the idea. In the current era of Web2, companies spend lavishly to acquire such data and build their own dispersed social graphs - walled gardens, which are, ironically, deemed the most valuable asset and quintessential to their ad-driven business model.

At the dawn of Web3, CyberConnect is here to build a decentralized social graph protocol that serves Web3 social networks and the metaverse. Our mission is to return the ownership and utilities of social graph data back to users while providing an infrastructure for all Web3 developers to integrate and build upon.

What's a Social Graph?

Think of an address book, or for those who are even younger, phone contacts, which documents a person’s social relations. Even these two seem outdated now compared to all social networking apps like Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. Maybe you don’t even remember the last time you actively searched for friends in contacts, while you see their Instagram posts or LinkedIn updates all the time. A social graph consists of such mapping of social relations among individuals, and it’s interesting to ponder how we are taking it for granted thanks to Facebook, which monopolizes social graph data at the expense of user privacy.

CyberConnect aims to build a decentralized social graph protocol that returns data ownership and utilities back to Web3 dwellers while inviting all Web3 social networks and Metaverse projects to scale with us. A blockchain-agnostic infrastructure, CyberConnect supports multiple blockchains for app development and allows Dapps to access and use social graph data provided by users themselves.

Abstract

The rise of global social network giants empowers the centralized tech cartels to misuse user data, infringing user privacy and imposing censorship. Investigated by Cambridge Analytica, Facebook collected social graphs and personal profiles from millions of users without their consent to facilitate political advertising, inappropriately profiting from personal data. The current landscape of Web 2.0 centralized social network has deviated from the principle of the World Wide Web to enable the decentralization of information on a large scale.

As the solution, we desire a decentralized, censorship-free, and self-sovereign social network, which exactly aligns with the thesis of the Web 3.0 revolution. At the dawn of Web 3.0, CyberConnect is here to build a decentralized social graph protocol that serves Web3 social networks and the metaverse. Our mission is to return the ownership and utilities of social graph data back to users while providing an infrastructure for all Web3.0 developers to integrate and build upon.
