Slashtags

A New Beginning for the Web

Slashtags is a new internet protocol that flips the web on its head, putting the user in control. Slashtags are fully scalable and compatible with any system or network, no blockchains are required.

Features

Slashtags Browser Wallet

This is a Chrome-compatible extension that allows early adopters to experiment with the Slashtags Accounts experience. This app supports storing your website accounts as Bitcoin keys, while automatically detecting and interacting with websites that support Slashtags.

This app is mostly for testing and demonstration purposes. It is a precursor to a more comprehensive app that should be available in Q2 2022.

Slashtags Accounts

This Slashtags module allows websites to offer passwordless accounts that their users control and back up themselves.

Slashtags Accounts use bidirectional authentication to mitigate various MITM attacks, prevent insecure password behaviors, and make it harder for websites to be censored.

Slashtags Contacts

The Contacts module allows any app to offer a Bitcoin-integrated phone contacts experience where users can privately connect and selectively choose which metadata to share.

Slashtags Feeds

Based on Slashtags Accounts, Feeds are end-to-end encrypted channels that allow websites to offer dedicated feeds, much like traditional API keys, except using the same key you log in with and the same keys you backup with your Bitcoin wallet.

Slashtags Actions

We designed Slashtags to be the most abstracted and compatible authentication and networking protocol possible. Slashtags Actions allow you to wrap any application function within verifiable keys using encrypted communication channels.

The Biz with
John Carvalho

A Crowdfunded Bitcoin Podcast Experiment

Join Synonym’s CEO, John Carvalho, as he interviews the professionals building the future of Bitcoin.

Features

The Crowdwall Concept

Episodes of The Biz are distributed through a unique “crowdwall” system using Bitcoin and the Lightning Network.

A “crowdwall” is a new concept, similar to the traditional paywalls you see on news websites. The difference here is there is one total goal that everyone contributes to. When the goal is reached, the content is made freely available to anyone and everyone permanently, with no additional costs to users.

Progressive Unlock

Every payment made toward the crowdwall goal unlocks a proportionate amount of content, allowing every visitor to hear more and more of the episode for free, until it is permanently unlocked.

Bitcoin Magazine Distribution

Each episode is distributed, ad-free, once it is 100% unlocked. This includes a full transcript and distribution by Bitcoin Magazine across all popular podcast platforms.
