“FiNANCiE” aims to be the next Facebook or Instagram, but what is it? Founder Hironao Kunimitsu’s successful blockchain scenario
FiNANCiE, a new social network supporting personal dreams, released its open beta on March 7, 2019. It is the latest in a string of services such as crowdfunding and closed online communities that allow individuals to gather support and raise funds. But what makes FiNANCiE unique is that it uses blockchain technology to provide mechanisms not only for fundraising but also community mobilization, for example through service transparency and participant incentives. We asked founder Hironao Kunimitsu, who describes FiNANCiE as “next-generation social media to replace the approval-craving social media of today”, about the project’s development, technical aspects, and goals.
