Mask Network to expand the DeFi Ecosystem through Social Media
Mask Network, known initially as Maskbook, is a portal that allows users to seamlessly send encrypted messages, cryptocurrencies, and even DApps (Defi, NFTs, DAO) over the top of social networks without migrating, and thereby creating a decentralized Applet(DApplet) ecosystem. It aims to bridge Web2 and Web3, to empower the general public to use the better web within the current mainstream platforms, without using any API or centralized server.
Mask Network said it hopes to expand the service to other famous social media sites and other protocols in the DeFi ecosystem. Mask has come a long way considering its initial launch in July 2019. Moreover, earlier, its widget was designed to allow Twitter and Facebook users to encrypt posts on the platforms.
Mask has since developed several applets. This includes a characteristic that identifies all tweets carrying a Gitcoin URL. It allows readers to make direct deposits to a grant campaign in one click without leaving Twitter. A new version of Mask is up for release in 45 days. However, this will bring a yield aggregator, portfolio analysis, and ‘Initial Twitter Offering’ features to the widget.
The widget also plans to provide peer-to-peer payments, token issuance, and decentralized storage functionality to Web 2 users. Additionally, the team is also targeting the e-commerce sector. It prophesies that future versions of the widget will advance a booming market for social content in the form of non-fungible tokens.
