Understanding the model nature of @friendtech

This platform is hot because of its creative, easy-to-make fomo model and has the #Airdrop expectation vibe!

Some personal thoughts on the nature of #friendtech

……………………………………

1⃣ Personal Thoughts

🔹 @friendtech is a decentralized social platform with an innovative model

🔹 #friendtech received seed round investment from @paradigm and partnered with this VC to build tools for new online social interactions

🔹 I see that @friendtech belongs to a typical Ponzi scheme:

https%3A%2F%2Flex-img-p.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com%2Fimg%2Ff762fcb2-19a1-4515-9338-f0c642cb8305-RackMultipart20230821-129-770l0v.png?table=block&id=94c2ff00-12d9-471f-aef5-dd8c64b67f8c&spaceId=6b79b4f3-d819-469f-8456-964dcbe59a5f&width=2000&userId=f28c9647-468b-47f1-9a1c-8c7b423caad1&cache=v2

▪️ Share token has no supply limit but the price increases exponentially with the number of holders, ie the former buys cheaper than the latter!

▪️ There are many projects preparing to build on → expand to a complete financial ecosystem

  • @friendtech_bot
  • @friendtechindex, etc.

▪️ This is easy to cause psychology #FOMO

→ But behind the increase in the index, once someone sells that share will plummet!

🔹 Account Creation Threshold

https%3A%2F%2Flex-img-p.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com%2Fimg%2F3eab216d-31a4-4db9-8666-642b1719448a-RackMultipart20230821-112-6vamae.png?table=block&id=d34f5134-7d58-4eec-9c42-3abafe522b48&spaceId=6b79b4f3-d819-469f-8456-964dcbe59a5f&width=2000&userId=f28c9647-468b-47f1-9a1c-8c7b423caad1&cache=v2

▪️ Minimum account activation fund is 0.01E (~$20), this is a reasonable number for both real user psychology and sybil attacker

▪️ Real users tend to accept $20 as an opportunity cost for creating 1-2 accounts

▪️ Sybil will be afraid to scale multiple accounts

▪️ The program #airdrop 100M points in 6 months is almost certainly a form of token distribution

→ Thus, the account creation threshold both plays a role in creating liquidity for the share market & also acts as a barrier to eliminate the maximum amount of "junk" shares!

https%3A%2F%2Flex-img-p.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com%2Fimg%2F24b78230-631a-4979-8399-484444751b34-RackMultipart20230821-137-ydix1h.png?table=block&id=ae45808c-016b-4e1d-aba8-349180f6cd4c&spaceId=6b79b4f3-d819-469f-8456-964dcbe59a5f&width=2000&userId=f28c9647-468b-47f1-9a1c-8c7b423caad1&cache=v2

🔹 Release shares according to the number of refs selected

▪️ One person is limited to 3 new invitation codes every Friday

▪️ This mechanism helps keeps user to engage with the platform weekly

→ This is a selective "share" recruitment style similar to @ArkhamIntel used to do, this step creates value based on scarcity, activating fomo psychology

→ Thus the ponzi model is effectively applied in the input, creating the effect of oral communication on CT!

🔹 Model creates friendliness, simplifies the share issuance process for major KOLs in the industry

▪️ Influencers who create an account on @friendtech will automatically release shares

▪️ The general psychology of CT is that users tend to buy shares from popular KOLs

🔹 Moreover, on the user side, they also have their own share + expectation #airdrop

https%3A%2F%2Flex-img-p.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com%2Fimg%2Fc1852c07-15d0-4a4f-b3bb-156f042c21eb-RackMultipart20230821-104-nqwv74.png?table=block&id=71982ea5-40c8-4727-8bc7-1ded14711468&spaceId=6b79b4f3-d819-469f-8456-964dcbe59a5f&width=2000&userId=f28c9647-468b-47f1-9a1c-8c7b423caad1&cache=v2

→ that makes their behavior tend to buy and sell, the "cross buy" trend can be derived from this mentality

→ the formula is to activate the share transaction that generates revenue for @friendtech!

🔹 According to the project parameters

https%3A%2F%2Flex-img-p.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com%2Fimg%2Fa07be884-2f10-4277-8c05-92f4e2c1bb62-RackMultipart20230821-149-vvteqd.png?table=block&id=aab3d753-d599-468e-890a-848005c24e63&spaceId=6b79b4f3-d819-469f-8456-964dcbe59a5f&width=2000&userId=f28c9647-468b-47f1-9a1c-8c7b423caad1&cache=v2

▪️ The contract owner of @friendtech has received more than 10K #ETH share transactions, corresponding to more than 500 ETH in transaction fees

→ A model that makes money, still has many strategies to push #fomo! And a big #airdrop marketing push is possible!

……………………………………

3⃣ Critical Analysis

🔹 At a glance, the FriendTech model seems to brilliantly encapsulate the tech industry's latest trend: embracing decentralized social platforms underpinned by a FOMO culture

🔹 It seduces us with the appeal of unprecedented social interactions, the allure of constant engagement, and the potential profit from transaction fees

🔹 Yet, it's essential that we challenge the allure of this "innovative" model

🔹 This model, with its seemingly unbarred growth, bears strikingly eerie similarities to a Ponzi scheme

🔹 It taps into our psychological tendencies for both fear and desire: the fear of missing out, and the desire to enter the market at a 'low' price

🔹 It triggers a spiralling composition, wherein early participants buy at a lower price— prompting others to join in fear of losing out

🔹 But here lies the rub: once these initial investors sell, the price plummets, leaving late participants at a loss

……………………………………

4⃣ Conclusion

🔹 @friendtech demonstrates an intricate dance with emotions & tech-savvy strategies, an amalgamation of decentralization, psychology & digitization

🔹 It symbolizes a new wave that needs to be navigated with critical insight & caution
