The Idea: DeSo wants to decentralize social media in the same way Bitcoin and Ethereum are decentralizing the financial system.
"The data and content created by users today is privately owned by a handful of companies, rather than publicly accessible as an open utility. Because only a handful of companies have access to the content, only these companies can curate competitive feeds, only these companies can build competitive new features and apps, and only these companies can monetize this content-- content that isn't even created by these companies in the first place. There's value in combining all of the content into a single pool, since it allows for curation at a global scale, but whoever we put in charge of maintaining the pool is ultimately going to become a centralized gatekeeper like what we have today. A solution would arise if we had a way to shift the network effect to a public pool of content that no individual entity controls."
The DeSo Advantage: Mixing NFTs and Social Media
DeSo user profiles would look something like this:

NASCAR race control and the PRN radio broadcast will also be streamed as well as a weekly driver fan vote.
