Taking curation to the next level: Kiwi Product Update

At Kiwi, we have been focused on building community-curated media. So far, we have 1,200+ monthly readers & 80+ monthly curators, and we plan to make it even easier to curate & meet people with shared interests.

So here’s what we did since the last update to make it happen:

1. You can now read & create Lists to dive deep into one subject.

Spotify playlists help us dive into a genre such as rock, pop, or hip hop. Our Kiwi lists are similar - they help you dive into specific subjects such as decentralization, crypto, art, etc.

Currently, we have 7 lists:
- The Nouniverse: curated by ccarella.eth
- Composable Culture: curated by
- Proof of Art: curated by mishaderidder.eth
- Understanding Public Goods: curated by timdaub.eth
- Farcaster World: curated by macbudkowski.eth
- Dive into Protocols: curated by timdaub.eth
- Web3 Builders Podcasts: curated by macbudkowski.eth

If you have ideas for other lists, DM @macbudkowski or @timdaub on Telegram.

2. We shared 0.75 ETH with the most active community members via Retro Public Goods Funding.

Kiwi community members get karma for each submission and upvote they receive. We used it to calculate their voting power on PropHouse so they could choose the most active community members. The voting has ended, and we paid out ETH to the winners.

It’s an upgrade since the last time we handpicked the grant recipients. Feel free to reach out to us if you'd like to contribute.

3. Our bots on Farcaster & Twitter share the 6 most upvoted links a day.

Some of you said you want our crypto links integrated with your daily habits, so our bots came to the digital spaces where you spend your time.

Bots' links:

Twitter bot - link

Farcaster bot - link

Upcoming: Lens & Telegram bots.

4. It’s easier to learn about people posting good content.

If you see someone curating good content, you can now read other stories they picked, see their bio, check their projects, and so on.

We do it by fetching ENS avatars & links, displaying karma, and mapping users' wallet address with their Farcaster accounts. You can also check all their submissions.

Just type in “”

5. We summed up all KiwiPass utility on one page.

There’s a new subpage that explains all the benefits of minting the KiwiPass & joining the Kiwi community.

You can check the KiwiPass page here - link.

6. You can now earn ETH by referring Kiwi to your friends.

The program is simple - if someone mints Kiwi via your referral, you’ll get 0.00222ETH thanks to ZORA protocol rewards.

7. Main feed is now better.

We worked a lot on fine-tuning the algorithm so that the Main Feed displays the best links. One interesting mechanism is that when the feed is slow, links by people who historically got many upvotes per submission can more easily get into the Hot Feed. 

8. There’s an easy way to become a more advanced Kiwi user.

If you click the staircase icon on the sidebar, you can learn about more advanced Kiwi features.

9. You can submit links on iOS with 2 clicks.

We created an iOS shortcut you can use to submit links to Kiwi easily.

Learn more about the shortcut here - link.

10. You can see who upvoted your submissions.

We fixed notifications so you can get this nice feeling when checking people who upvoted the stuff you found interesting.

11. Our PWA got more stable.

You can download it by opening the website on your Android or iOS phone and clicking the “Install our app” button.

12. Protocol & site work better now.

We fixed some protocol-level bugs and optimized the site. Plus, we introduced CloudFlare caching, so it should load faster.
