Smartphones of today have changed how people communicate. These little devices pack some real heavy computing power, even for the low end models. As such, they have become mini computers that people can carry in their pockets, checking on emails, messaging and contacting people.
With 3.76 billion active global mobile social media users at the start of the year, no one can deny that smartphones are the way to go.
Sapien Network Native Apps
Sapien is a blockchain based social media platform that gives the power back to users. Where every social media platform sets its own rules and lives off selling user data to other companies, Sapien changes to landscape. It runs a transparent system and allows its users to completely customize their experience and maintain their privacy.
Understanding the power of smartphones and the roles these devices play in everyday life of people, Sapien Network has launched its native mobile apps to let its users now connect with friends and likeminded people, on the move, wherever they are. With this, Sapien has become the first blockchain based social media platform that has launched Android and iOS applications. This means that anyone with a smartphone can access the platform, especially in developing countries where there is low penetration of computers, but a high one for smartphones.
CEO and Co-founder of Sapien Network, Ankit Bhatia was excited about the launch of the apps,
“We’re building a new kind of social network, one built on decentralization and privacy. The technology that enables us to provide this service is blockchain. As such, it’s fitting that we’ve now become, to our knowledge, the first blockchain-based social network to release native mobile apps for Android and iOS.”
