helios envisions the development of a highly modular platform with a robust core guaranteeing decentralised, privacy, blockchain, monetisation, 3D, VR/AR, and other features where developers can create their own social media apps or develop new modules for extended capabilities. We encourage developers to create most functionality to modules and leave only a minimal set to the app itself. Thus, other developers can benefit from the effort and participate to maintain the modules. As an analogy to such crowdsourcing is Thingiverse in which different designers share their 3D models, or WordPress where different types of users get the best of the ecosystem for the creation of websites, templates, API’s, etc.
helios has reached a main milestone with the development of the Alpha Release of the platform ensuring the interoperability and joint functionality among the core and different modules and components. This version extends the MVP and includes new functionalities such as content detection and improved user profiling.
