Social fingerprint

In the encrypted native world, "protocols" become the core fundamental element, while people are marginalized, resulting in the interconnection of data, assets, and protocols among various DApps, while people are isolated, let alone native interpersonal social networks. INTO has innovatively proposed the concept of "social fingerprint" to refer to the unique Web3 social network graph of each user, which will play a crucial role in the construction of the Web3 encryption economy.

The "social fingerprint" is implemented through protocols and can be freely combined with various DApps to achieve the "social network+DApp" mode. On the one hand, users have autonomy and can interact between various DApps using "addresses" to quickly expand their personal network and further construct a larger social network graph between users; On the other hand, as the project initiator of DApp, the combination with social network graph protocols can quickly increase user scale, overcome the cold start period, and greatly enhance the commercial application value of DApp.

So the two complement each other, ultimately forming a crypto economy scale effect of "user scale social graph + DApp".Interacting with various DApps by address undoubtedly strips the user identity, but the on-chain data generated during the interaction process belongs to that address, so the user who owns the address gains ownership, management, and control of the data. These on-chain data are endorsed by blockchain distributed ledger technology, which is trustworthy, traceable, tamper-proof, and loss-proof.

When accumulated, they form users' personal characteristics, social relationships, and behavioral trajectories. Users can use this as their own profile, which is difficult to achieve in Web2. In this way, users have the initiative to plan and design what they want to become, and change themselves based on protocols (or contracts), continuously improving their "Web3 identity" in practice. Such a "social fingerprint", when mapped to reality, will form a "decentralized identity", without further ado or authoritative proof.

The data on the user chain will complete the "trusted self-verification - this is "me". Moreover, with the development trend, widespread application, and increasing frequency of user interaction of Web3, "I" is also constantly growing. On-chain data, assets, behavioral trajectories, credentials, etc. will feed back the identity of the real world, which can be used as proof of personal asset strength, skill ability, experience, circle level, and other aspects. In the future, it can be applied to daily personal credit reporting, job hunting, financial loans, VIP membership, and other aspects, It can even change the social status in reality
