WeKu announces launch of blockchain ‘community-as-a-service’ social network platform as beta reaches 50,000 members

4 months ago


WeKu, an Austin-based startup developing a blockchain-enabled community-as-a-service platform, announced its live platform launch after its beta release recently surpassed 50,000 users in two months. The WeKu platform allows content creators, organizations and communities to create their own digital social networks with customized incentives for viewing and sharing content, with a toolkit of blockchain & social network features to develop your own digital community.

With multi-language support, WeKu’s platform gives content creators ownership and control over their content, will allow them to set their own incentivization mechanism for viewers and community members. Content will be stored via IPFS (inter-planetary file system), and users will have other tools such as direct messaging, video, and seamless language translation, appealing to international and multilingual communities.

“We want to give any content creator or community the ability to curate their own online social network, set their own reward structures, in any language, all over the world. While there are 15% of our users are from the U.S. — we’re seeing a mix of cultures and languages, whereas other platforms have focused on the English-speaking market. We’ve also been able to respond to community feedback quickly, and welcome those coming from other platforms where bots, collusion, censorship and other issues have affected fairness and profitability,”

says Kevin Zou, WeKu co-founder. “We are continuing to innovate and improve on early blockchain-based content networks such as Steemit and are incredibly excited about the feedback and momentum from the community, even in a down market.”

WeKu is offering a limited signup delegated WEKU Power to encourage content creation on the platform. The feature to enable users to purchase WeKu Power with STEEM and ETH to increase their influence and voting rights just went live on 11/5/2018

The upcoming release features a revamped UI. WeKu will also be doing some live promotions and conference appearances in the coming months, and interested parties are encouraged to reach out to the WeKu team to find out more or schedule an interview.

Does this mean it is not in beta anymore?

Nice post

Good news which I believe is re-posted again.

I saw this post few days back before the block restarting issue. I think you had to repost due to the restart.

We hope for the best altogether.

Thanks for the info as always.

We are waiting for weku to enter market so that investors can come in and there will be a section were delegation of sp can be done.

Good to hear that what is going to happen to promote weku.I have a suggestion if you increase referral bonus that will also help weku to attract more people.50000 is not a big number ,but it's only two months and weku coin is yet to hit the market.I am hoping for a bright future.


i agree to every single word of you.


Yeah. Truly this will have some real viral effect but 50,000 is far from it and nit realistic. It makes the coin to lose value.

As a matter of reality, it will even easily render the coin useless. 100 to 500 or so is still reasonable a referral bonus.


What are you talking about? 50,000 is the number of accounts created on WeKu so far, not a referral bonus. Although at 200 delegated WP, I believe it is too high and invites abuse similar to what we have seen thus far.


Oh my Goodness. Pardon my misconstrue there. I thought he was talking about Referral bonus.


Now following you @arslan .

Thanks to updates dear

this is a very good news

Weku is developing in the right direction.
There is still a lot ahead of us.

WEKU up the moon!!

"Best" and "Facebook" look very awkward when used in the same sentence. :)


Lol, you got a verry important point here @willymac
