Synereo is a next-gen social network

By Judith Jakubovics – BizDev at Omni Foundation

Dear Omnis,

It’s turning out to be another exciting and productive week! The Omni Foundation is privileged to provide a platform to so many innovative projects.  Omni allows for the issuance of Smart Properties and assets on the Bitcoin blockchain, and we like to share some of the leading projects using the platform and protocol.

Today, I would like to introduce Synereo.

Synereo is a next-gen social network that puts security, identity, and community management directly under the purview of you – the user, respecting your attention and rewarding you for your activities on the social network.

With current social networks, you are not the client. You are the product being sold. The value you create by being a part of the network flows upwards immediately, reaching only a select few: those in control of the network. With Synereo, a completely decentralized and distributed network, you are in control. The value you create, provide and share stays in your hands.

Why Synereo?

Synereo is a next-gen social network. It is:

  • Unconstrained by the financial desires of its operators
  • Impossible to take down
  • Rewarding for content creators
  • As private and as unmonitored as you want it to be
  • Devoid of any center of control
  • Designed to value your attention through direct compensation
  • A better system for social organization online

Synereo’s Token, The AMP: A Voice Amplifier

AMPs, the application tokens for the Synereo network, serve as a way to Amplify the flow of information in the network, increasing its organic reach and allowing it to get to propagate to more peers.AMPlogo PICTURE 2


Who benefits from Synereo?

You, the user. By participating in the Attention Economy, you receive tokens that you can use to Amplify your voice or to sell on the market. These tokens have an inherent value, as they can be used to increase the chances of a message getting a user’s attention. The more you do for the network, the more your attention is worth.

You, the content producer. Through direct compensation for user-generated content, Synereo puts users back in control of their content, to rise and fall directly on the support and passion of its community. Synereo makes it easy to find your communities and grow your project on your terms.

You, the advertiser. Advertisers allocate significant resources in an attempt to optimize the reach of their campaigns and outsmart content delivery algorithms. An entire ecosystem of advertising middlemen profit from programmatic advertising; buying and selling ad spaces, bidding for your attention in real time, using retargeting mechanism and attribution models, and generally adding nothing to the quality of the content.

Synereo will provide advertisers with the full set of tools necessary to reach their natural audiences, decimating the costs otherwise lost to both these advertising middlemen and to the centralized platform.

Here are some ways to get your first AMP tokens

1) You can buy AMPs during an initial crowdfunding phase which will fund the development of Synereo and its deployment. The crowdsale will be supported by the Omni Foundation, and will begin at X.2.2015.

2) Registering for Synereo and migrating your information from an existing social network account.

3) Expanding Synereo by inviting users who register on the network and migrate to it.

4) Bounties. People working to contribute to the development, deployment, and expansion of the network will receive AMP rewards for their efforts.

Omni: the next layer

Mastercoin Upgrades Premier Bitcoin Asset Layer, Relaunches as Omni
Original Bitcoin 2.0 Protocol Powers MaidSafe, Tether, Factom, La’Zooz and
35 More Cryptocurrency Tokens, Passes Counterparty in Market Cap of Assets

Core Developers Ready New Version of Omni Layer Asset Creation Platform, Omni Wallet Multi-Cryptocurrency Online Wallet, and Omni Exchange Decentralized Exchange, All to Launch in Q1 2015

(North American Bitcoin Conference, Miami – January 18, 2015) – Mastercoin (, which created the Bitcoin 2.0 movement through the creation of the first overlay to the Bitcoin blockchain following the industry’s first crowdsale in August, 2013, announced today that it has substantially completed the development of the Omni Core engine behind the Omni Layer (formerly Master Protocol) and will rebrand all aspects of the Mastercoin ecosystem as Omni.

“This relaunch reflects both a change in the cryptocurrency asset landscape, with MaidSafe becoming a top 10 cryptocurrency overall, and the desire of the decentralized developer community that has grown up around these assets and protocols to become a unifying presence in the ongoing development of the blockchain for business,” said Craig Sellars, a technologist of the Omni Layer.

The Omni Layer is a protocol that sits on top of the Bitcoin blockchain, allowing the creation of assets that combine the unmatched network security and adoption rate of Bitcoin with enabling capabilities built into the Omni Layer which allow new assets like MaidSafe, Factom and Tether to create specific new uses cases like decentralized web services, data and records documentation, and a digitized traditional currency, respectively.

The Omni Layer is a decentralized community that was funded by the Mastercoin Foundation, which gathered support from the community totaling 4,700 bitcoins in August, 2013, and used these funds (including during times when bitcoin was valued at 4-5x today’s pricing) to fund hackathons and developer bounties. Two of the Foundation’s key projects, the Omni Wallet (the original use of the Omni brand by the Mastercoin community) and the decentralized exchange, will be completed by a new Omni Foundation, whose board members will be elected by the membership of the new Foundation.

Today the market values of token assets issued on the Omni Layer (including MaidSafe) exceed that of all Counterparty and other Bitcoin blockchain-issued assets combined.

About Omni
Omni ( is the latest iteration of the Master Protocol, created in August, 2013, as the first bitcoin asset layer. As the original Bitcoin 2.0 entity, Omni has 18 months of development and its ecosystem includes a multi-currency wallet (Omni Wallet), which connects to a decentralized exchange (Omni Exchange). Omni is a global community of developers and entrepreneurs building the premium asset layer of Bitcoin as open-source software.

Omni: the next layer

Omniwallet Milestone v0.26 adds Pending TX Support

It is the beginning of a New Year and we have been quiet for too long. We want to start 2015 by giving all Omniwallet users something to celebrate. We know that from time to time sending / receiving transactions may cause some confusion; “Did I send that deposit?”, “Did my transaction go through properly?”.  In an effort to help alleviate this and provide better feedback to you, we are happy to announce Omniwallet’s support for pending transactions.


We are now able to track transactions broadcast from within Omniwallet. So when you send from your Omniwallet or someone sends you something from their Omniwallet we are able to capture the intended transfer amount and provide you with feedback about what is happening and what you can expect to happen once the transaction confirms on the blockchain.



As a last little bit of eye candy we also want to share a sneak peak from our testnet server, the redesigned overview page which is part of the new UI currently under development.



Milestone Summary (See the full list of details on Github):

  • New: Pending Tx Support
  • New: Decode raw api
  • UI/UX updates
  • Rapid deployment of updated code
  • Crowd-sourced Security Testing
  • Continuing integration of Master Core features
On the Horizon:
  • Wallet ID recovery by Email
  • Send To Owners Support
  • DEx Phase II
  • Additional SP token values in fiat

Take a look and let us know what you think, we’re always happy for user feedback.

After a well rested holiday it’s time to get back to business. Come see what’s going on and help us chase down those fireflies.
