Aiming to help Web2 users ease into the new age of the digital future, Popoo is a blockchain platform that combines a traditional social media platform with Web3 incentives.
By watching, posting, and engaging with social media content via Popoo, users will gain Popoo tokens ($PPT), which will be used to elevate the user experience within the app.
Designed as a platform driven by unique NFTs for anonymous digital identity and online content ownership, Popoo is promised that it will redefine how people interact with one another.
Web3, blockchain technology, NFTs, tokens, and cryptocurrencies have been becoming popular words to many as these new technologies are revolutionizing the way people live.
Take a look at how the internet evolved, it can be seen that while Web1 was used as a resource for learning and was a space for media companies, Web2 went much further as it created a space where users could upload images and video content.
In other words, Web2 mainly focused on human interaction.

What Is Popoo?
Web2 opened the doors to social media and became a commercial lot where corporations connected with their audience. Not only that, but Web2 also became a huge marketplace for content creators, artists, and entrepreneurs.
The rise of online social spaces can be said as a result of the wave of people who found a way to make a profit from a new booming economy.
However, some of the biggest drawbacks of Web2 such as lacking privacy and security led to Web3 being on the rise.
Web3 provides users with the form of tracked ownership thanks to the cryptographic nature of blockchain technology, so every piece of content created or shared on Web3 can be tracked.
Moreover, every user on Web3 has the chance to keep their identity a secret. Therefore, Web3 delivers a transparent but private experience.

Why Should Popoo be on Your Radar?
It can’t be denied that NFTs are gaining popularity in every sector.
Although the year 2022 has been a cold hard year for crypto, it has in no way been hard on other Web3 projects such as NFTs.
The high demand for NFTs has not subsided despite the raging bear market in the crypto space showing that brands across the world are always finding unique ways of using NFTs.
When NFTs first came to be, NFTs were a revolutionary use case for artists and were mostly used to digitize, sell, and distribute art as artists can directly control their own work.
Since then, NFT use cases continue to amaze the crowds from sports NFTs, gaming NFTs, and fashion NFTs to supply chain activities.
However, only the very top KOLs and popular artists are able to get the promotions they want and the ad revenue to earn a real living.
Blockchain Engagement for All
Meanwhile, several tiers of small/mid-size artists are basically working for free as well as unable to overcome the barriers set by platforms for revenue sharing even though the platforms themselves earn massive amounts of revenue through the collective efforts of small/mid creators.
Seeing these infinite possibilities of NFTs, Popoo has started with what it believes to be the most essential for social content creators.
On Popoo, users and creators can turn their content into NFTs, allowing them to directly own their content and every time users watch content, the creators will be able to earn engagement rewards with a higher monetization compared to traditional platforms.
On the other hand, on traditional social media platforms, content ownership is not guaranteed and the platform can ban or remove your account whenever they want to, making it similar to a centralized crypto exchange.
Popoo with its promise, of “not your keys, not your content”, will take advantage of tokenization and on-chain transparency to allow content creators to truly own their content and monetize or even sell the ownership rights.
Leverage Existing Assets
Understand that creators may have spent many years building a brand, IP, and unique content, therefore, the platform allows you to continue where you left off instead of starting over again. You’ll be able to import your existing social Web2 identity into Web3.
In addition, Popoo’s mission is to be a community-driven project, which ultimately means less focus on any individual or team. The platform will focus on the vision and goals of the project and platform.
The platform is well funded by the founding team, with no external investors.
Popoo plans to abstract the complexities of Web3 technicalities, making it easy to interact with tokens, NFTs, SBTs, and more without extensive prior technical knowledge keeping users in one ecosystem with the Popoo NFT Marketplace, Wallet, and more.
