Introduction

Tech companies are increasingly censoring communities and punishing wrongthink. The latest episode involved hedge fund-backed Discord, which banned a Reddit group (Wall Street Bets) that was behind the spike in GameStop’s share price. The closure of a self-moderated board, with its own policies and guidelines, sets a troubling precedent. The possibility that hedge funds planted people within the Wallstreetbets Discord in order to cause its shutdown - allegedly for “hate speech” - cannot be dismissed.

The ambition of blockchain technologies, and decentralized infrastructure products such as Bluzelle, is to increase transparency, enhance security and prevent censorship. To create products that live in perpetuity and cannot be shut down. Members of society are entirely capable of determining what they like and dislike, and do not need third parties to make decisions for them. Building censorship-resistant products empowers individuals to wrest back control from increasingly authoritarian technocrats.

With BluzelleDB, developers can be confident that their product cannot be shut down by any party — including Bluzelle itself.

The Bluzelle ecosystem currently comprises 1,889 developers on Discord, and the platform has partnered with 34 blockchain entities including Matic, Polkadot, and Elrond. Bluzelle also has over 10 community projects under its umbrella. The Bluzelle mainnet is scheduled to go live on February 3.
