I’ve accidentally found out about this guy a few days ago and it’s quite mind blowing.
**Developer called Esteban Abaora has developed a serverless, adminless and decentralized Reddit alternative that will run on a blockchain kind of system (** it will actually use “public key based addressing” and a peer-to-peer pubsub network.**)**
**Pretty crazy stuff right?!**
Developer believes that this design would solve the problems of a serverless, adminless decentralized Reddit alternative. It would allow unlimited amounts of subplebbits, users, posts, comments and votes. This is achieved by not caring about the order or availability of old data. It would allow users to post for free using an identical Reddit interface. It would allow subplebbit owners to moderate spam semi-automatically using their own captcha service over peer-to-peer pubsub. It would allow for all features that make Reddit addictive: upvotes, replies, notifications, awards, and a chance to make the “front page”.
Finally, it would allow the Plebbit client developers to serve an unlimited amount of users, without any server, legal, advertising or moderation infrastructure.
What do you think? Im really surprised by the way he is planning this to work. Its neither DAG nor traditional blockchain. I’m intrigued. Now your posts could live on forever!

You mean you got mentioned by someone trying to qualify for the airdrop?
>We propose solving the data problem ***by not using a blockchain***, but rather “public key based addressing” and a peer-to-peer pubsub network.
Damn OP you gotta work on your titles.
Infinite shit posting sounds a little terrifying
I wonder how’d they’ll handle copyright. Or what happens if someone posts pedophilia in a post?
Reddit won’t even load videos properly lol. Just imagine how god awfully slow that could be.
So it’s 4chan but with less anonymity? Hmmm
I am worried this shit will be full of porn, gore, child abuse and many more horrible things I can’t even imagine.
You know there are some bad people out there without admins I can’t imagine the shit they are going to post
If I’m not wrong ICP also have reddit like website on decentralized network
Nice, child porn that can never be deleted and will automatically be on your hard drives if you decide to run a node yourself.
The 4chan returns
It will be a shitshow without moderators.
So basically 8chan will rise again..
Isn’t this just the old ISP model from the early 90s? When nothing’s the server, everything’s the server.
Did you even read the whitepaper?
>A blockchain or even a DAG is unnecessary
The project doesn’t have anything to do with cryptocurrency or even blockchain technology. It’s P2P. Why are you posting this here?
Nice try, Estaban
I’ve never understood how an app could “live” on a chain. i feel stooopid.
Too late. This is what https://bbs.market was made to do and does well so far
The entire world of dApps in itself is crazy. For any developers interested in Web3. Polygon has a ton of workshops and hackathons where you build things with people. It’s a good way to learn how all of this works. Even if you don’t plan to develop.
So each member synchs the whole reddit, si whenever you open it you have to sync?
> Subplebbit owner starts a Plebbit client “node” on his desktop or server. It must be always online to serve content to his users.
That’s not very decentralized through.
That’s pretty cool.
Everyone: Expects porn, gore, pedophilia.
Reality: Unlimited reposts and karma-whoring.
Does he have moons ?
Because we have moons.
So, every post, comment, and reply would be permanently available on their version of a Blockchain? That’s gonna be a no from me, dawg.
