Peepeth

Anyone can start their own front-end interface that reads and writes Peepeth data (yourPeepeth.com), because the blockchain protocol is open.

Peepeth is a Twitter-like social media website, but here your data will be in your control forever. You can even monetize your likes.

Good UX for an Ethereum project. It’s difficult to onboard people in your app if you’re a web3 site/app. Not everyone is used to web3, and web3 is still very young. Peepeth does the onboarding very well.
