Lens Protocol: A composable decentralized social graph for a web3-ready community

What is Lens Protocol?

Lens Protocol is the brainchild of the team behind DeFi mainstay Aave, led by Aave’s founder Stani Kulechov and CEO Alexander Svanevik. The team also includes CTO Jan Isakovic, who previously worked on 0x’s smart contracts, and Product Manager Filip Martinka.

How does it work?

With web2 social media networks, all the platforms read data from a unique centralized database. There is no easy way to port data from one platform to another with such a framework. This is where Lens Protocol comes from.

What problem does it solve?

A few centralized platforms currently control the social media landscape. These platforms determine what users see and don’t see, with the power to censor content they disagree with.

The future of web3 social media

Lens Protocol is designed to be a community-owners and ever-evolving social graph from the ground up. The protocol is open-source, and anyone can contribute to its development.
