Web3 Powered Newsletter

👤 Profile




📱 Product

Paragraph is a web3 powered newsletter aiming to turn subscribers into members.

Why Paragraph?

  1. Ownership for creators: Decrypt and Messari are both publications that had 100k followers and were deplatformed. Creators are recognizing the importance of truly owning the relationships with their community.

  2. New models for engagement: Giving NFTs or ERC20s to your audience through content can not only grant access (i.e. token gated model) but also align incentives. For example, x% of proceeds can be distributed out to members who mint a specific NFT.

  3. Permisionless extensibility & composability: All Substack newsletters, Medium publications, etc. look identical. No APIs, no way to export comments, minimal customization, etc. Contrast this to content stored on Arweave & subscriptions represented as NFTs: full composability & extensibility by default.
