Friend.tech is a decentralized social token application built on the Base platform, allowing creators to earn money from their content or expertise. Creators connect with their online community through tokenized attention, where their influence is represented by “Keys” (shares). This application allows anyone on the platform to bet on the social value of other users, through buying and selling shares of users. Essentially, Friend.tech is a social token platform.

On August 10, the Friend.tech app was launched and quickly gained popularity on Crypto Twitter. The app only operates on mobile phones and is built on the newly launched Layer 2 chain, Base, of the centralized exchange Coinbase. Within one day, Friend.tech attracted over 8,500 users and generated over 3,200 ETH in trading volume from buying and selling user shares. According to Dune, this platform has conducted over 6,682 ETH in transactions, equivalent to over $12.3 million USD, since its launch four days ago. It has generated 334 ETH (approximately $615,000 USD) in transaction fees. The popularity of Friend.tech has also propelled Base past the Layer-2 Arbitrum network in terms of daily active users.
