BitClout 2.0 will launch with a sophisticated airdrop after the DeSo’s proof-of-stake consensus mechanism is complete.

The white paper for BitClout 2.0 can be accessed at Meanwhile, the password can be obtained by messaging @bitclout on any DeSo app like Diamond or DeSo Chat Protocol.

Bootstrapping a stock market for people

BitClout 2.0 introduces Creator Coins V2, a reimagined version of the original trading product.

Creator Coins is an asset class introduced by BitClout 1.0 tied to the reputation of an individual rather than to a company or commodity. It allow creators, celebrities, influencers, and everyday users to monetize their work.

Since Creator Coins track the reputation of an individual, if Elon Musk successfully lands the first person on Mars or alternatively go bankrupt, it will affect the price of his Creator Coin.

Creator Coins V2 are fully backward compatible with V1, allowing users to transfer over seamlessly. They will be tradable on DeSo decentralized exchange (DEX) that was showcased by Openfund.

Trading activity on BitClout 2.0 will be incentivized with a new BITCLOUT token, allowing people to accrue fees through Creator Coin V2 trading activity.

Bitclout 2.0 will reward early adopters through an airdrop scheme inspired by BitClout 1.0 and from NFT marketplace, Blur. BitClout 2.0’s airdrop mechanics is expected to drive trading liquidity and “content liquidity” by compensating active creators.

Creators who post regularly and engage the community will also earn BITCLOUT through airdrops.

People interested in participating in the BITCLOUT airdrop can start familiarizing themselves with DeSo apps like Diamond, Openfund, Desofy, DeSocialWorld, and others listed on, before the launch.

BitClout 2.0 will be built on the Decentralized Social Blockchain. According to the BitClout 2.0 white paper, “DeSo is the only blockchain that can support the storage and indexing requirements needed for a decentralized social platform like BitClout 2.0.”

This is thanks to DeSo’s vastly-superior content storage costs, which make it finally feasible for apps to extend beyond DeFi to storage-intensive social applications, and much more.

History of BitClout

BitClout was created by the pseudonymous founder known as @diamondhands. What started as a white paper and an associated demonstration gained traction because of BitClout’s novel concept known as Creator Coins.

BitClout and Creator Coins were well received. The early prototype saw organic signups from influencers and celebrities. 

It also spawned numerous articles about its burgeoning “stock market for people,” including a long-form piece in the New Yorker.

A decentralized social application

DeSo’s move to proof-of-stake is likely to cement its status as the industry leader for developers wanting to build storage-intensive infinite-state applications.

Once completed, DeSo will inch closer to its final form, “The Sovereign Internet”, featuring a “Decentralized Web”. It will enable developers to deploy censorship-resistant storage-intensive applications at scale from anywhere in the world.

BitClout 2.0 will likely be the first example of what can be built on DeSo post-proof-of-stake, but it won’t be the last. 

Currently, other proposals are circulating, including Bitfair, the first crypto-native sports betting app, and Pseudo, the first decentralized identity marketplace.
