CyberLetter #9: Notable New Partners & Dev Center Update
0x148D
July 16th, 2022

CyberConnect is a decentralized social graph protocol that helps developers bootstrap network effects and build powerful social dApps while returning data ownership back to users.

Through our publicly accessible protocol, we are democratizing social connections and making social graphs self-sovereign, portable, composable, blockchain-agnostic, and contextually meaningful.

If you like what we are building, make sure to check out our site, subscribe to this newsletter, check out our Mirror, and follow us on Twitter.


A Little Reminder ⏲️


It’s a tough time for a lot of teams in the space. While we do not underestimate the challenges that our community, our peers and the whole industry is facing, we want to take this opportunity to remind ourselves and everyone else of the potential and promise of what we’re collectively building. Neither do we control financial markets nor do we influence the direction of the global economy and trends. We also don’t know how long this painful time will last. But we do decide how hard we work and we do know that no matter what, what we’re building will help billions of people.

Now is the time to put our heads down and keep pushing and that’s exactly what we’re doing. We’re thankful for our leadership team, our investors, and especially our partners for continuing to inspire us.


At a Glance.


Total Users = 1.48 Million

Total Connections = 21.74 Million

API Calls = 108 Million

Partnerships 🔗


We’re thrilled to be welcoming the following exciting partners to the CyberConnect ecosystem:

MadMen is a decentralized advertising platform who has integrated the CyberConnect social verifier API to confirm the authenticity of advertisers, thus providing users with an extra layer of security when they’re clicking on ads.

MetaJam is a verifiable reputation protocol that enables users to discover Web3 projects that are trustworthy. MetaJam has integrated the CyberConnect APIs for follow/unfollow users + liking & voting for projects on the platform, as well as displaying the rankings of the projects that are voted for.

Also highlighting some of the most notable projects to sign up for Link3:


Product


Since the launch of the alpha version of our latest product Link3, we’ve seen over 200 Web3 projects/DAOs/investors sign up with over 120 verified accounts.

Our work on v0.2 of Link3 is continuing and our special surprise will be announced very shortly. Stay tuned :)

Protocol🔒


  • Our efforts on improving the developer center are continuing. We deployed v0.8 of the developer center over the past week and added one particular section by popular request: an overview of partners that have integrated with CyberConnect on the center’s Showcase page. The projects in our ecosystem range across diverse fields including but not limited to NFT marketplaces, credential networks, and metaverse explorers. You can head over to the showcases to learn more on how projects such as Project Galaxy and Light are using CyberConnect.

What’s Next?

  • We are making new changes to the CyberConnect Explorer. Our team has been hard at work to make these improvements and add new features to launch the Explorer’s v0.2. Stay tuned for these new features (hint: they include new data visualization options).

  • Are you a prospective developer who is curious about what you can build with CyberConnect? In our next developer center update (scheduled for next Friday), we will release Version 2 of our CyberConnect Starter kit. The starter kit serves as a template to quickly understand what you can build with CyberConnect. With modularized components, you can copy-paste the code into your projects in no time. The starter includes all of our features in an all-in-one platform that allows you to play with key features such as how to follow users, receive notifications, and get recommendations. By using this starter template, you can quickly build a social media dApp, explorer, or feed.


Community🎢


  • Our Co-Founder & CEO Wilson Wei joined us at the Community Call AMA on July 15th to introduce Link3 for Professionals. Wilson talked about our vision for Link3 and how to get whitelisted. We will be whitelisting 100 participants’ addresses from this community call.

    For this initial launch, only whitelisted addresses or those with invitation codes will be able to sign up. Whitelist spots will open early next week. See more details on the campaign blog and our Discord server.

  • Recognizing Community Contributors on Link3:

    • Our community would not have been here without the support of our core contributors. As a milestone, we have created the Cyber Community Link3 page featuring all verified contributors from our community (Doormen, Mail-Boy, Designers, and Content Creators) to recognize their achievements.

    • All featured contributors will be whitelisted for the launch early next week. If would like to be one of our core community contributors, you can directly contact JDaizs#1599 or Kevin Li#9871 on our Discord Server for more information.
