ASTΞROIÐ is a decentralized content management system (dCMS) powered by the Arweave blockchain where you truly own your data instead of the platforms hosting your content. It is also backed by a reward distribution protocol for content creators and project supporters to make the whole ecosystem sustainable.
In simple words, it basically is a decentralized blogging platform made sustainable by DeFi. The smart contract protocol also forms a media DAO, where contributors co-own the whole system and control what content should be valued and rewarded more.
Headless CMS on Arweave
ASTΞROIÐ is a headless CMS that is decoupled from frontend UIs. It aims to become building blocks of other platforms.
Offline-first in 2 ways - articles can be programmatically created and posted to blockchains without frontend dependencies or any centralized APIs / the default frontend app will be a PWA where you can manage your data without the internet.
Your data will be saved permanently on the Arweave blockchain (if you wish).
Your permanent data will be cryptographically authenticated and generate proven ownership with NFTs on Astar Network.
ASTΞROIÐ DeFi protocol will distribute rewards to your NFT content based on how it's valued in the ecosystem.
Contract events will be indexed and fed to frontend UIs to display articles.
You can also edit and manage articles on frontend UIs.
Developers can also create their own frontends using the headless SDK (in development).
There will be direct/indirect integrations with existing blogging platforms such as Mirror, Medium, and other web2 platforms. ASTΞROIÐ will let you take back your own data into your hands.
You will be able to back up your data privately on IPFS-based storage.
Reward Distribution Protocol on Astar Network
It will be deeply integrated with Astar Network Dapp Staking, which directly contributes to the growth of Astar Network (and vice versa).
We are democratizing the platform fees by letting creators set arbitrary payback rates.
$ROID Creator rewards will be distributed periodically, whose amounts will be determined by protocol voting.
It's based on gift economy of social tipping, but the protocol incentivizes more tipping for more rewards to contribute to your communities. Gift economy is a positive-sum game, so it's very powerful and sustainable when made into a blockchain protocol.
The $ROID emission into circulation will be auto-controlled by the total value of the treasury collaterals using a bezier curve, which assures the floor price of the $ROID token to make it theoretically unbreakable.
The posting fee is variable to make sure everything is sound, which works like blockchain transaction GAS.
The amount of creator reward will be determined by the emission control, that is, the higher the treasury value increases in a season, the more the creator economy in the next season will be.
