What is Zion?

Zion is a decentralized social network built on Bitcoin, designed to facilitate the free and open flow of content and payments between creative people and their audiences.

Social media companies extract billions of dollars in revenue by serving as the “middleman” between content creators and their fans, followers and subscribers. Zion challenges their monopoly as intermediaries of online content, just as Bitcoin challenges banks’ monopoly as financial intermediaries.

By replacing digital intermediaries with transparent, open source protocols, Zion sidesteps corporate profit motives and empowers every user with full sovereignty over their entire digital experience, absolute freedom of expression, and irrevocable custody over their personal information. On a decentralized social network that cannot collect or store user data, there are no hyper-targeted ads, no increasingly-polarizing “recommended content,” and no threat of surveillance or arbitrary censorship. The rules are enforced by technology -- not technology companies.

Communities on Zion are fully independent micro-economies designed to unlock opportunities for people to create wealth. Zion was launched to make it easier for creative people to pursue what they love and share their passion with the world.
