With the evolution of the Internet, the speed and scale of information gathering and distribution has reached an unprecedented level, and the explosion of information has forced us to adopt massive management tools some information. This has led to the emergence of search engines, which allow users to quickly and accurately access effective information through retrieval and analysis.
In the era of Web 2.0, the emergence of social networks allows search engines to trace users’ journeys and analyze their preferences and social graphs, thus offering more precise search results as well as intelligent recommendations. However, user data was scattered across these platform silos, which were isolated from each other.
Web3 embodies a whole new distributed network infrastructure, where native crypto wallet accounts become the mandatory path for users to access the Web3 world. All on-chain data can be traced back to specific wallet addresses, and each address is the identity of a specific person in the Web3 world. In this unified network, data barriers are removed and data can flow freely attached to wallet addresses.
The central logic of Web3’s upcoming creation of a new paradigm for information networks is the identity-oriented data structure.
During the bull market of 2021, 100 million users rushed into the crypto space in just four months, contributing to a surge in the total number of crypto users from 100 million to 200 million. Yet these 200 million crypto users still rely mostly on Web2 social networks to interact, such as Twitter or Discord. This is partly because in the native web3 space, each user exists as an address string, which cannot be used directly and efficiently. This situation mirrors the chaos caused by massive amounts of information in the early stages of the Internet.
Unit-based data processing rules of portfolio accounts will become the basic principle for structuring data in Web3, and additionally, for building a people-oriented information architecture.
Using Bi Search, search for crypto natives on Web3
Bit Islands officially launches People Search (Alpha) functionality to create a people-centric information architecture for Web3. Using Bi Search, it is possible to search for Web3 natives by wallet addresses. The search result is no longer a string of complex codes but a clear display of users’ personal profiles, including their assets, digital collections, interactive journeys, networking, and many other dimensions.
In the future, it will gradually support more Web3 identities such as DID, domain names and Web2 accounts such as email addresses and Twitter IDs. This is a crucial step in Bit Islands’ journey to build full-featured Web3 native social networking services after the launch of Bi Space.
The launch of Bi Search will allow users to proactively search and browse spaces/homepages on other users’ channel, enabling Web3 native social interactions and connections. Thanks to such native interactions, the neurons of the native Web3 social networks will be activated. From then on, the native social networks of Web3 and the natives will emerge naturally.
Two key features of Bi Search
1. Search for PEOPLE
Platforms such as EtherScan provide payment-oriented transaction record request services.
In contrast to this, based on interaction logic, Bit Islands restructures string data to show vivid and fleshed out portraits of people. Users can browse native Web3 social profiles of search targets just like visit Web2 social pages, where they can get personality intuitively, thus creating new social connections.
2. Display social networks
Social networks are called networks because they connect people and form channels of interaction between them. Binary islands will not only obtain images of the people represented by a certain address, but also map the social network of the Web3 world by analyzing the objects and chain interaction behaviors of users. Users are no longer isolated individuals but become the hubs of the entire Web3 social network.
Bi Search usage scenarios
1. Search by wallet addresses
When you want to know the details of a particular address, you can log in to Bi.social, enter the address in the search field and go to its Bi Space homepage. You can find his crypto assets, digital collections, on-chain social circle, and more.
2. Search by DID
When you only have someone’s ENS domain or other DID, you can also do a direct search. Bit Islands will parse the DID and redirect it to its Bi Space homepage.
3. Search by dApp accounts
When you find someone on OpenSea and want to know more about them, you can search for their OpenSea account on Bi Search. Bit Islands will analyze the account and redirect it to its Bi Space homepage.
4. Search by Twitter accounts
When you have no information about a Web3 account or an address of the search target, you can always search their Twitter account on Bi Search. Bit Islands will read the Web3 account and address information related to this Twitter account and redirect to its Bi Space homepage.
Research is the initial form people use when dealing with massive amounts of data. Search in Web3 will be an intelligent information search and analysis technology that is people-oriented and gradually becomes more complex.
In the near future, when we search for a token or an NFT, we will be able to obtain information about certain carriers, or even the portrait of all carriers. And through smart search and recommendation, we can also locate people with common interests in Web3, creating meaningful native Web3 social circles.
In more complex scenarios, by calculating the social reputation of people using search results and helping dApps prevent Sybil attacks, the people-oriented search engine will become an indispensable infrastructure in the Web3 world.
Based on the status quo of multiple channels co-existing in Web3, there are instances where a user has multiple addresses or avatars on different main channels. Binary islands will gradually support search and integration of information on various major chains to provide users with seamless Web3 search services.
In the long term, Bit Islands will gradually support more Web2 and Web3 identities to establish an integrated Web3 hub that can seamlessly connect to any platform. With all the social information gathered and distributed in the hub, the Bit Islands will encourage these 4 billion Web2 social users to migrate to the Web3 world.
