Medium-Like Decentralized Blogging Platform Powered by BCH
On a “freedom of the press” level, Matter essentially permits a decentralized substitute to bypass centralized companies who have the ability to promote and censor certain information. The brand new app prompted discussions about whether storing seemingly arbitrary information in the blockchain was a good use case for the network.
For typical blogs, there are costs associated with web hosting and server fees, not to mention SSL certificates and domain name registration. With Matter, there are only minimal miners fees, so anyone can create posts of any size that will be stored on the blockchain forever, reducing the need to pay the yearly fees of other servers and hosting plans.
There are several other decentralized social media platforms like Steem or Blockpress but whereas Steem is like Reddit and Blockpress is like Twitter, with a low character limit, Matter is catered toward long-form blogging with no character limits.
