Sapien Whitepaper

A multitude of theories behind human intelligence suggest how fundamental social networks have been to the
evolution of our species, Homo Sapiens.1 Whereas thousands of years ago the primary objective of interaction
was survival, we now interact for numerous reasons, ranging from business to pleasure. Companies like Reddit and
Facebook have enabled us to continue this ancient practice of socializing, while simultaneously driving open-source
innovations like React.js and GraphQL. Another example of the earliest social activity is payments. Bitcoin is the
first successful implementation of a borderless, cryptographical store of value enabling us to discreetly send funds
to another person. Yet it was Satoshi Nakamoto’s brilliant idea behind the coin, the Blockchain, that has opened the
floodgates of innovation. Immutable, hashed data is stored in blocks that are chained together to create a distributed
database, secured with cryptography. This new technology has begun to disrupt everything from healthcare to
banking to consumer apps. It is quite likely that we are witnessing the early stages of Web 3.0. Our team believes it
is now feasible to combine the innate human desire for social networks with the immense power of the Blockchain
to give each individual unprecedented control over their online social experience. We intend to build a democratized
social platform that truly serves its users, fueled by a flexible cryptocurrency, SPN, built on the Ethereum Blockchain.
