Key Takeaways

  • Farcaster is a decentralized social network protocol on the Ethereum blockchain.
  • A social network achieves “sufficient decentralization” when two users can discover and communicate with each other, even if the entire network actively tries to stop them.
  • The recommended way to interact with Farcaster is through the mobile app called Warpcast.

What Is Farcaster?

Farcaster is a decentralized social media protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain.

The developers envisioned the project as a public social network, much like X or Reddit, but built on decentralized principles.

Farcaster itself is not a social media app but a foundation for developers to build on. Warpcast is a famous example, offering a Twitter-like experience on Farcaster.

For security, Farcaster relies on smart contracts running on Optimism (OP), a layer-2 rollup built on top of the Ethereum blockchain.

In addition to the features mentioned, Farcaster users can rest assured knowing they fully own their accounts and connections with other users. This is because their data has the freedom to migrate seamlessly between various decentralized applications (DApps) developed on the protocol.

Warpcast is an app built on the Farcaster protocol. It is currently available as a mobile app, downloadable from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

Warpcast is a relatively new platform, and like any new social media, it is currently growing its user base.

How To Qualify For An Airdrop?

There are some speculations that Farcaster might hold an airdrop in the future, possibly for early users. However, the Farcaster team has not confirmed this.

Furthermore, Warpcast requires you to pay for a year’s use before you can use its platform.

To create an account on Warpcast:

👉 STEP 1: Head over to https://warpcast.com/ and download the app.

👉 STEP 2: Create an account.

👉 STEP 3: Create a wallet and generate a recovery phrase. Write it on a piece of paper and store it in a safe place.

👉 STEP 4: Input your email address and verify.

👉 STEP 5: Pay a yearly charge of $5.

👉 STEP 6: Create your username. Do note that your username on Warpcast might be permanent since it is stored on the blockchain.

👉 STEP 7: Input other information as needed.

👉 STEP 8: Cast and interact with other users as how you would use X.

The $5 fee is a one-time payment, but it only grants access to Warpcast for one year, and it is limited to:

  • 5,000 casts (public posts and private messages)
  • 2,500 reactions
  • 2,500 follows

To retain any exceeding casts, reactions, or followers, users must pay approximately $0.7 to $1 per month per item. Older items will be automatically removed if users choose not to pay to maintain the limit.
