Flote Features in v.10

Your voice matters. So does your privacy. Flote protects your right to freedom of speech with message encryption. You decide who sees what, whether it’s for profit, politics, pet videos, or philosophy.

 

Technical Approach

We’re rebuilding the entire system from the ground up, with the exception of the PostgreSQL database. The Old Ruby code will be sunset, and we’re migrating to gRPC messaging systems within the Node JS streaming data ecosystem which will fundamentally change the experience of the platform from a cached, refresh-heavy interface to a dynamic, “streaming API” experience. Couple that with a complete server-stack-rearchitecting into a privacy-centric provider, video & live stream improvements, and security and messaging improvements with Websockets & web-workers, we’re looking at a solid, safe, & secure developer-friendly platform that will be ready for the future of crypto/token integrations, animated user-friendly interactions, and high-fidelity data displays and metrics for the freedom community.

 

All Aboard!

People are jumping ship en masse from big tech and looking for kinder waters. Flote is a free-port social network for uncensored self-expression — where members earn crypto rewards while building meaningful connections.

 

Set sail with Flote — a new and improved social network that protects your freedom of speech.
