"Phaver’s mission is to connect the entire web3 by allowing users to bring in their own building blocks for their social graph, whether that means building credibility with a decentralized ID, finding community among holders of the same collectibles or building relationships across the entire internet with on-chain social layers like Lens," Phaver CEO Joonatan Lintala said in the statement.

"Users, who now own crucial pieces of the social network, also deserve their fair share of the pie and should be heard in important decisions," Lintala added.

Phaver first launched in 2022 on Lens, a blockchain mainnet undergirding web3 social platforms.
