Great, the AMA will be happening as follows:
are you ready to start AMA right now ?
Hi everyone! Dmytro here from Soda
Yes, let’s begin
Would you like to introduce yourself with my community ???
Hi everyone! My name is Dmytro, and I am the operations co-lead here at Soda and Sonet. Previously I worked as a Business Development lead for a social trading system and DeFi protocol. Before that, I worked in the finance industry. I graduated from NYU with a major in Math and Finance. Looking forward to answering everyone’s questions!
Can you briefly describe what is Soda?
Soda is a social NFT extension on web2 social networks. Currently Soda has fully integrated with Facebook, Twitter and more to come. Ultimately, we will launch our own network to onboard all users to fully enjoy the web3 version of Soda. Soda serves as a gateway for users to autonomously manage identity and data privacy at their entry points across various metaverses. Soda will educate and enable Web2 users to experience NFTs seamlessly in the following ways:
– Library: Discover, share, and interact with friends in the universal library of social assets
– Tokenization: All-in-one extension to create, tokenize and share social creations
– Interaction: React, bond and collaborate through tracked activities
Additionally, the Soda Market is a marketplace that supports NFT mints with decentralized technology, while transferring through original traditional social networks as communication channels.
What is Sonet middleware and its relationship with the Soda extension?
Sonet is an all-in-one middleware platform to support web3. and Soda is the extension providing a direct entry point to applications. Soda is Sonet’s first Web2 extension that is connected to the Sonet’s middleware aggregator. We’re an integrator of blockchain services that provide all the backend infrastructure that optimize the applications built on our platform. Soda will serve as the link between Web2 and Web3.
Sonet is trying to build a society web upon Web2 to provide a self-sovereign content network for end users, with a mobile app and web browser extension to manage the content.
What is the roadmap for Soda?
Currently, Soda is just a Web2 extension with one use-case for the social NFT space. In the near future, we believe Soda can expand into other use cases such as DAOs, DeFi, and other spaces, including social trading, DAO management, and even the gaming marketplace. With that said, that requires a lot of development and expansion of features, which we will prioritize and listen to our community on, as well as partner with those experts in their respective spaces.
In the near term however, we are focusing on DAO-use cases for Soda. With Soda you can mint your own NFTs for your DAO community and token gate your Discord with an appropriate bot for those NFTs. This is just one of many features we are offering DAOs across Soda and Sonet, and are excited to share more details about our progress as they come!
Can you please briefly describe tokenomics of Soda?
As the first dApp of Sonet middleware, Soda extracts the key concepts of tokenization and assetization from NFTs. By creating a general equivalent (medium of exchange) to evaluate asset property, and using token property to manage contents through existing Web2 applications, this project enables NFTs to fit in the current business model of Internet traffic monetization to form a brand new digital token usage market.
In support of the Sonet middleware platform, we are creating a uniform payment system using our native governance token $Sonet to reconcile payments and fees for end users so that developers can focus on their apps. The $Sonet token is the governance token for the entire ecosystem and the eventual DAO that will form. Additionally, we are creating a mining network for the validators that maintain our ongoing operation.
Sonet Miner Network:
– Partnership and end user incentive payments will be denominated in $Sonet and can be staked in Sonet’s Liquidity Pool
– A separate Infrastructure Mining Pool will be available for miners that support Sonet’s backend, and rewards will be airdropped in $Sonet
next we are going to part 2 : questions on website
Question 1. I believe every project faces ups and downs, what were your greatest challenges at the early stage of this project and how were you able to overcome them?
We have a very experienced team with many combined years of crypto and blockchain experience, Including on many notable US and Asia based projects. Because of this we are able to act on an aggressive timeline to grow Soda/Sonet without many road bumps. We have seen a steady and sustained increase in downloads and user base on our chrome extension since our launch!
Often the biggest challenge can be growing an engaged community around your product, but because our users are so excited about the future of Soda, the community surrounding our product has grown very organically. Our Discord server is the home of the Soda community.
Question 2. Do the token holders have right to participate in the governance of the project? On what kind of decisions can they vote on about the project ?
Yes! Holders of our $Sonet tokens will be able to vote on future propsals of Sonet. Currently, we also offer governance rights for holders of our flagship SoCat NFT.

next we are going to part 3 : questions on twitter
Security is always a big concern of every platform. So I want to ask What are your plans for increasing the data security of #SodaExtension? And do you have any Bug bounty program for us?
Our project is fully audited and also open source. We also have our bug bounty in our discord channel. As a legit chrome extension, we passed the security review by Google team and feel free to test our extension through this link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/soda/ckeekocbghailhahfmkdgffiieolpagi
We do also have a bug bounty program. Come check out our Discord and go to the bug bounty channel: https://t.co/q9gGdtcYHY
A lot of cases investors are just chasing short-term returns instead of the true purpose of tokens. What have you done to prevent such a scenario from benefiting a project? Also, how will you prevent a project from mishandled and disappearing the money invested?
Our investors have been fully vetted by us and our team. We have strong relationships with some of the top investors in crypto, and consider them to be long term strategic partners and advisors
For retails token investors, there is not much that can be done, other than for us to continue to improve our project and from our actions hope the tokens go up in value. However we cannot control the market. But for those who believe in our project and hold our tokens for their true purpose and utility, we will do our best to make sure they get all the benefits we offer with our token
I read that, #SodaExtension will educate and allow Web2 users to experience NFT. Being a social application built on web 2 extension how do you plan to attract Web 3 users ? State your web 2 extension features? how will you lower the barriers to entry they face today?
We strongly believe that the best way to convert Web2 users to Web3 is through the current applications that they are already using today, such as the top social networks, Facebook and Twitter. As a team of passionate friends, we are infatuated with NFTs and believe it is the easiest way to learn and educate others about crypto, and all the amazing things that Web3 has to offer. That’s why we built Soda, to help anyone get into NFTs seamlessly.
