The team behind Project Liberty’s Decentralized Social Network Protocol unveiled the newly named parachain at Polkadot Decoded

The Polkadot ecosystem will soon have a parachain dedicated to decentralized social media named “Frequency,” the team behind the protocol said Wednesday at Polkadot Decoded, its annual community event.

Frequency, the first implementation of The Decentralized Social Network Protocol (DSNP), had already selected the Polkadot ecosystem as a home. It is probably best known as the protocol underpinning real estate billionaire Frank McCourt’s Project Liberty.

Project Liberty, which has some $250 million in backing from McCourt, aims to “democratize” social media by developing a publicly accessible database of people’s social connections and challenging the power of social media giants and surveillance capitalism.
