Flote v1.0 to Embark on its Maiden Voyage

by | May 25, 2021 | Flote News, Press Release | 46 comments

With 2 years and hundreds of thousands of social posts in our wake, we are ready to drop ‘beta’ and launch our v1.0.

Flote is building a free, open and user-friendly social network where users effortlessly interact with censorship-resistant tools like cryptocurrency and blockchain that connect with both online and real-world applications.

Connect — Flote makes it easy to find like-minded people and worthwhile experiences.

Curate — Add text, images, audio, workshops and video — including fee-free livestreaming.

Collect — Dozens of ways to monetize, simply by sharing content, cryptocurrency related features like minting NFTs, or trading goods and services.


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.

Connect with your crew today on Flote.app

    Couldn’t come at a better time. Bon Voyage to the twitter Titanic whose 1st class snooze while its lifeboats are lowered as the tide turns towards still more icy isles of turbulent terror. Send up the flares, Ye Blaggards of Big Tech!

            F-droid and APK files should be all that is offered. Reject google.

    I love the energy that flote is born from – anarchists/voluntarists Erin and Kingsley and the people they love and trust- and the future potential for business, trading, exchanging our energies amongst the like-minded, the open-minded, the forward thinkers, the people who use their brilliance to un-enslave the lot of us if we can just open our eyes and see…keep up the great work thanks FLOTE

  11. Carson L

    After hearing interview with Kingsley Edwards on the Survival Podcast I am looking forward to what flote will do for free speech.

    Finally I have seen the end of FakeBook..

    2021 the year Facebook becomes the modern Myspace…

  13. Tyler Bloyer

    Is there a plan to allow embeds from your platform on other websites? I’d like to use the live stream as an embed on my website. Currently I use twitch for this, but would much rather like to use flote.

  14. Nick Shoup

    So looking forward to this! The beta is good and glad to see it as an alternative to fascbook and twatter, the 1.0 is going to be amazing from what I have seen.

  15. Cathy Williams

    President Trump said back in 2016 that the Main Stream Fake News would be out in 6 yrs. That appears to be happening as we see their viewership plundering!
