Proposal Title: [Avalanche Community Grants Quadratic Funding: [Round #1] BLOCK’d Social

Application Questions:

Please provide an overview of the project:
BLOCK’d Social is a unique web3 social platform that incorporates all our the favorite social media platforms’ best features into one place and secured by the blockchain. This includes: Social Posting (like X/Twitter), Guilds (decentralized discord), BlockTalk (Twitter Spaces), Music Guild (Soundcloud), The Blockade (Steam), Developers Corner (Upwork), and Decentralized Live-Streaming (Twitch).

Please explain how your project meets the round eligibility criteria:
BLOCK’d offers a completely unique experience to web3 users. BLOCK’d is currently 100% bootstrapped.

How does your project benefit the Avalanche Ecosystem? Please mention any existing or upcoming partnerships:
All accounts and Guilds are souldbound NFT’s that are minted on the AVAX Network, keeping your data secure and truly yours. As we explore our original idea of Sub-Socials, subnets will be able to have their own white-labeled social hub under the BLOCKd umbrella but utilize their native subnet token for micro-transactions and tipping. Our current partnerships include: LivePeer, Cryptolids, COQnet, Avalabs

Is there anything else you’d like to share about your project, previous work, or other affiliations?
Unlike other SoFi/DeSo projects previously launched, either on Avax or other networks, none have truly differentiated themselves like we have. We take pride in having fully bootstrapped to this point, where we have a fully functioning platform with active utilities and a steady growing community.
