paragraph.xyz is a web3 Substack. Permissionless & credibly neutral wherever possible: NFTs instead of subscriptions, Arweave instead of centralized storage, and integrations with Farcaster for better engagement & distribution.

Fast, free for a large amount of initial usage, unlimited scalability. In hindsight, should have looked more into dev experience (TS support mainly) and if noSQL vs relational was the right call. Haven't considered Supabase yet but I've heard good things

I think it depends - in previous projects, I spent more time than I should of writing tests before I got users/pmf. The product worked and was tested, sure, but ultimately it was a huge waste of time since I wasn’t building the right things. Later stages or critical software, agreed though

Farcaster's business model is a good example I'd love to see implemented more. Subscription-based monetization, no token, but still building atop a permissionless & composable protocol

We should strive for full interoperability whenever possible, versus just portability. If I dislike my Substack's publication theme, why should my only option be to exit the platform? Open & permissionless systems make creating, extending, & customizing better. Better for users, developers & companies alike

Both portability & interoperability exists on a scale of usability. Exporting Twitter followers is less useful than exporting Substack subscribers for example, since you can't reach your followers outside Twitter. Similarly, interoperability ranges from closed APIs to permissionless, credibly neutral protocols

Forming a thesis around your options if you hate a platform: - portability: export your data and move it elsewhere - interoperability: use one of the many clients/extensions/APIs to improve/extend Former example is a Substack/Twitter export; latter is FC protocol

How would you feel if we built these features into Paragraph?

One option would be doing something similar to @launch. Create a bot (@farlancer); companies cast job openings, tag the bot, and can go in and edit the post on a separate website. The website aggregates all listings, jobseekers login w/ wallet (thus pulling in FC data) to apply

FC client idea: Farlancer Freelancing marketplace (eg Fiverr) on FC. - freelancers associate their FC account with skillsets and work they’re seeking - companies post jobs & payrate; freelancers can apply in 1 click - everyone has eth address so payment happens on chain - reputation & verification tied to FC

I’ve only ever tuned into a handful of Twitter spaces :/ not sure if I just don’t find them valuable or more broadly don’t care for social audio
