Does Memo have access to my private keys?
Private keys are stored encrypted with the user's Memo password.
The key needs to be unencrypted to sign transactions. Memo does not have
access to the private keys, so it is critical for users to keep a backup in
case the Memo password is lost.
What are the implications of posting to a public blockchain?
- Immutability: Memo actions (post, like, follow, tip) are public and visible to anyone.
This is similar to some other social media, but there is a critical difference: there are no delete or
edit functions because blockchain data is immutable. We assume that in the future there will be a need to
give more options on the Memo website about user intent, but the fact would remain that any action is permanently
written to the blockchain and exists there for anyone to read. Keep this in mind while using Memo!
- Portability: Your Memo account is controlled with a Bitcoin Cash address. You can use the
same address with any application implementing Memo protocol or with a Bitcoin Cash wallet. This means
you are in complete control of the actions and data associated with the address.
What is Shared Connections?
Shared Connections represents how connected a Memo account is from the perspective of your account.
Currently it is the percentage of those you follow who follow the account.
indicates that less than 5% of the people you follow are following this person.
is less than 20%,
is greater than 20%,
with a star means you directly follow that user.
How are the Ranked, Personalized, and Top views determined?
- Ranked: smart sort using Score, Time, and Gravity (more info).
- Personalized: sorted by how many of those you follow Like the memo in the time period selected.
- Top: sorted by how many total Likes the memo received in the time period selected. Note
that old memos can appear in this view if they recently received a Like.
Is there a Memo mobile app?
We currently do not have a mobile app, but we plan to create one soon.
Is there an open source client for Memo?
The Memo protocol
and the website
are open source. We have not created other clients yet, but anyone can build a new one using the specification.
We're currently focused on improving the site and then building a mobile app.
