Plebbit, a new social media platform that aims to replicate a decentralized version of reddit and 4chan has switched the chains of its governance token from Avalanche to Ethereum. This change followed a vote of its users who have been concerned about the ongoing viability of the avalanche platform.

Plebbit is a serverless, decentralized, adminless social media platform that incorporates some elements of the interplanetary file system which is a distributed file storage protocol that allows computers all over the globe to store and serve files as part of a giant peer-to-peer network.

It is currently operating in demo mode at plebbit (eth.limo) and plebchan (eth.limo). The minimum viable product is expected to be released soon.

It has subs that aims to be similar to the subreddit boards of reddit but with the proviso that particular boards are free from censorship from the corporate admins of reddit. Although many people are unaware of this, popular reddit boards were banned for very political reasons. One of them, The_Donald was a popular subreddit that supported Donald Trump. For very shady political reasons, the The_Donald was banned the Reddit Admin team in an election year, and no doubt harmed Donald Trump’s election prospects in the 2020 USA presidential election.

A plebbit sub belongs to the owner of the sub, and can’t be changed by any super admins. Even the creator of plebbit can’t shut down a plebbit sub. For more information, check out plebbit.com.
