With DeSo, users will finally have true ownership and control over their data, their identities, and their relationships. They will be able to choose which applications they use, and they will be able to switch be- tween them seamlessly. Most importantly, they will be able to do all of this without sacrificing privacy or security.

DeSo is the leading blockchain that has been custom-built from the ground up to scale these decentralized social networks. Social applications generate a lot of data that the existing blockchain protocols cannot handle. DeSo is solving this issue by building the first-ever truly decentralized social platform that can scale to billions of users.

The DeSo team is made up of experienced professionals from some of the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Amazon, and Facebook. They are backed by top VC firms like Sequoia Capital. Nader Al-Naji is the founder of DeSo, a blockchain project that he started work on in early 2019. Nader’s interest in cryptocurrencies began in 2012 when he mined approximately 23 Bitcoin while studying computer science at Princeton University. After that, Nader worked in high frequency trading at D. E. Shaw and as an engineer on the Google Search team prior to raising $133 million for Basis, his previous company which was building a decentralized currency.

The DeSo blockchain is designed to be a more scalable and user-friendly alternative to existing blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. One key feature of DeSo is its use of sharing, which allows the network to process transactions much more quickly than other blockchain networks. The DeSo blockchain is built on the EOSIO protocol, which is the most powerful and efficient blockchain protocol available today. The EOSIO protocol is able to handle millions of transactions per second, which is far more than any other blockchain protocol.


The Task

Decentralized social media networks like DeSo offer a new way for people to connect and share information that is more secure, transparent, and trustworthy. By using blockchain technology, DeSo is able to create a decentralized social network that gives users more control over their data and privacy.

Our team faced many challenges when building its decentralized social network. One of the biggest challenges was creating a system that could handle the large amount of data that is generated by users on the platform. Another challenge was ensuring that the platform was scalable so that it could accommodate future growth.

Despite the challenges, our team was able to successfully launch their platform and attract a large number of users. As of now, DeSo has over 1 million registered users and is one of the largest decentralized social networks in existence.

The Strategy

The team behind DeSo approached Foreignerds with the goal of building a decentralized social network that was secure, transparent, and trustworthy. To achieve this, they wanted to use blockchain technology.

Our team had extensive experience in both blockchain technology and social media networks. We were able to provide the DeSo team with the expertise and guidance they needed to build their platform successfully.

The How

DeSo has over 1 million registered users and is one of the largest decentralized social networks in existence.

The success of DeSo shows that there is a demand for decentralized social networks and that blockchain technology can be used to create such platforms. This case study provides an overview of the DeSo platform and discusses the challenges that the team faced when building it. It also highlights some of the key features that make DeSo unique and attractive to users.

The Output

We created a social media platform that is decentralized and powered by blockchain technology- gy. We built an application on top of the DeSo platform that allows users to securely store and share their data. We deployed our application on the DeSo network.


Our application is now running on the DeSo network and is available to all users. We have successfully demonstrated how blockchain technology can be used to create a secure and decentralized social media platform.

Lesson Learned

We learned that blockchain technology is well-suited for decentralized applications. We learned that the DeSo platform is a great option for developers who want to build applications on a blockchain. We learned that deploying an application on the DeSo network is simple and straightforward.
