[READY TO VOTE] Incentivize Projects to Integrate the Farcaster Social Graph

Well, there are some users who have a Farcaster account, some who have a Lens account, and some who have accounts on both protocols.
Regarding sequencer revenue, e.g. Lens clients like Hey and Buttrfly have direct integration with Zora (and Buttrfly with Sound.xyz as well), i.e. press a button in the app and mint without going to Zora or Sound. So users of Lens directly contribute to sequencer revenue as well.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Lens maxi. Basically, I agree with my fellow PoolCollective member @Tjark

Can you explain why Farcaster only has Warpcast as the only client that never accepts crypto gas payments and is very BUGGY ???

Android users pay the gas fee and get rugged. Asking for support and being ghosted.

Sorry for doing this here but this is SUPER SEVERE BUG YOU HAVEN’T SOLVED FOR MONTHS.

THE QUESTION: CAN WE BUILD ANOTHER WARPCAST OR IT’S CENTRALIZED?


far.quest seems to have full client implementation and on-chain payment but still has some bugs. They have high-quality user support and should be an official client in place of Warpcast…

Also, many apps only accept Warpcast as it’s login method.


This mission is better named “Incentivize Projects to Build on Farcaster”

I don’t see how Farcaster can drive Optimism sequencer revenue if most of the actions are on their own P2P network called Farcaster Hub, not Optimism or ETH mainnet.

Also, Lens may drive more sequencer revenue if they migrate to Optimism.

Hope the Supercast or other teams implement their own wallet client and replace Warpcast.

I am an Optimism delegate with sufficient voting power and I believe this proposal is ready to move to a vote.

Yes, there are multiple

The Grants Council has opened early submissions as an Indication of Interest for this mission request here

For your application to be considered, the Mission request must pass the Token House vote on February 14th. Submissions will not be considered if a Mission Request is not approved on the 14th.

I ended up voting for this proposal. I felt comfortable only after lavande clarified Mission Requests are a unique proposal type where delegates can vote on their own mission requests or ones they sponsored since teams are chosen by the Grants Council. I am very excited about Farcaster and feel many apps would benefit from implementing their social graph (why I decided to build full-time in the Farcaster ecosystem).

Hey everyone,

In addition to the ones listed in the description, here are potential ideas I had:

Social Proof for Crowdfunding:
For decentralized crowdfunding platforms, integrating the Farcaster social graph can add a layer of social proof. Users could see how many of their connections are supporting a particular project, thereby increasing trust and potentially encouraging contributions.

Example: A user sees that 10 people they follow on Farcaster have already backed XYZ on a crowdfunding platform, which influences their decision to support it too.

Enhanced Social Trading:
Implementing Farcaster’s social graph in decentralized exchanges or DeFi platforms to allow users to follow and mirror the trades of their connections.

Example: A user can opt to get notifications or automatically mirror trades made by their Farcaster connections, fostering a community-driven investment approach.

Socially-Informed Content Curation:
For content platforms like decentralized news or media dApps, using the social graph to curate and recommend content based on what a user’s connections are reading, liking, or discussing.

Example: A decentralized news platform recommends articles that are popular among a user’s Farcaster connections, creating a more personalized reading experience.

Community-Driven Governance: In DAOs or platforms with governance mechanisms, showing how one’s social connections are voting on proposals could encourage more participation and informed decision-making.

Example: When voting on a new governance proposal, a user can see how their connections have voted, helping them to make a more informed decision.

Decentralized Event Planning and Attendance: Utilizing the social graph to create and promote events within decentralized communities. Users can see which events their connections are attending, creating a more engaging event experience.

Example: A user receives notifications about blockchain meetups or virtual events that their Farcaster connections are interested in or planning to attend.
