Information Dissemination in Web3 from Joshua
What we want to share, it's a thread about Information Dissemination in Web3 from Joshua, RSS3's founder. Let's take a look at the product screenshots to see what stages we go through for feed acquisition. This is the earliest stage. We had very limited consumable data (mainly webpages) on the Internet.
Then there came RSS
When we enter the blockchain world, we can query a single blockchain information through the blockchain browser page, such as etherscan.
There are feeds like RSS3, which provides aggregated and human-readable feed across different networks.
Any thoughts about it? We want more comments from our community!
Let's chat it out: https://twitter.com/JoshuaRSS3/status/1560660568096182272

We are excited to announce a new partner this month, our frens at SpaceID!
SPACE ID is a universal name service network that currently operates on BNB chain. They are building one of the first cross-chain universal identifiers in the blockchain space, with the first domains being .bnb.
RSS3 will now support and index SPACE ID .bnb functions, allowing the exploration of activities by SID users. This partnership will strengthen both the RSS3 and SID ecosystems, pushing towards a more open and readable web3.

RSS3 x Unstoppable Web
We are excited to announce another partnership with our frens at Unstoppable Web!
Users can now browse the wide range of Web3 identities powered by Unstoppable Domains on the RSS3 feed.
A little bit about our new partner: Unstoppable Domains is on a mission to return the power of the internet to people. To accomplish this, they are creating NFT domains that put users back in control of their data.
"These aren’t just traditional domains, these are domains with superpowers."
The mission of our frens at Unstoppable Domains aligns with ours at RSS3, and we believe that this collaboration will make the Web3 ecosystem more readable and transparent for users. RSS3 allows users to browse many types of domains on the feed, now including Unstoppable Domains.
International man of mystery Usagi was present for RSS3 at yet another event, this time at Devcon in Bogota, Colombia. This event was a great meetup for the Web3 ecosystem, the first Devcon meetup in two years.
