Search Engine for Web3 Natives
With the development of the Internet, the speed and scale of information collection and distribution has reached an unprecedented level, and the explosion of information has forced us to adopt massive information management tools. This led to the emergence of search engines, which allow users to access effective information quickly and accurately through retrieval and analysis.
In the era of Web 2.0, the emergence of social networks allows search engines to track users’ paths and analyze their preferences and social graphs, thus offering more accurate search results. search as well as smart recommendations. However, user data is scattered across those platform silos, isolated from each other.
Web3 contains an entirely 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 broken, and data can flow freely attached to wallet addresses.
The main logic of the upcoming Web3 creation of a new paradigm for information networks is Identity-oriented Data Structure.
During the 2021 bull market, 100 million users rushed into the crypto space in just four months, contributing to a sharp increase in overall crypto users from 100 million to 200 million. However, these 200 million crypto users still mainly rely on Web2 social networks to communicate, such as Twitter or Discord. This is partly because in the web3 native space, each user exists as an address string, which cannot be used directly and effectively. This situation is similar to the chaos caused by the enormous amount of information in the early stages of the Internet.
Data processing rules based on the units of wallet accounts will be the main principle for structuring data in Web3, and furthermore, for building a people-oriented information architecture.
With Bi Search, find crypto natives on the Web3
bit islands has officially launched the People Search (Alpha) feature to build a people-oriented information architecture for Web3. With Bi Search, it is possible to search for natives on Web3 by wallet addresses. The search result is no longer a string of complex codes but a clear representation of users’ personal profiles, including their assets, digital collections, interaction paths, networking, and many other dimensions.
In the future, it will gradually support more Web3 identities like DID, domain names, and Web2 accounts too, like email addresses and Twitter handles. This is an important step in Bit islands journey to develop complete Web3-native social networking services after the launch of Bi Space.
The launch of Bi Search will allow users to proactively search and browse other users’ on-chain spaces/homepages, enabling social interactions and native Web3 connections. Through such native interactions, the neurons of the Web3-native social network will be activated. Therefore, native Web3 and native social networks will naturally emerge.
Two Main Features of Bi Search
1. Search for PEOPLE
Platforms like EtherScan provide payment-oriented transaction record query services.
Unlike this, based on interactive logic, Bit islands rearrange on-chain data to show vivid and fleshed-out images of people. Users can browse the social profiles native Web3 of search targets like visiting social pages on Web2, where they can get the personality intuitively, thereby creating additional social connections.
2. Show Social Networks
Social networks are called networks because they connect people and form communication channels between them. Bit islands will not only allow images of people represented by a given address but also map the social network of the Web3 world by analyzing users’ on-chain interaction objects and behaviors. 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 into Bi.social, enter the address in the search box, and access its Bi Space homepage. You can find his crypto assets, digital collection, on-chain social circle, etc.
2. Search by DIDs
When you only have a person’s ENS domain or other DID, you can also search directly. Bit islands will parse the DID and redirect to his Bi Space homepage.
3. Search by dApp accounts
When you find someone on OpenSea and want to know more about him, you can search for his OpenSea account on Bi Search. Bit islands will parse the account and redirect to his Bi Space homepage.
4. Search by Twitter accounts
When you have no information about any Web3 account or address of the search target, you can still search for his Twitter account in Bi Search. Bit islands will read the Web3 account and address information tied to that Twitter account and redirect to his Bi Space homepage.
Search is the first form people use when processing massive amounts of data. Web3 search will be an intelligent information retrieval and analysis technology that focuses on people and becomes progressively more complex.
In the near future, when we search for a token or an NFT, we may get information about certain holders, or even a picture of all holders. And through search and smart recommendations, we can also find people with common Web3 interests, thereby forming some meaningful web3-native social circles.
Under more complex scenarios, by calculating people’s social reputation using search results, and by helping dApps prevent Sybil attacks, the search engine dedicated to people will be an indispensable infrastructure in the Web3 world.
Based on the status quo of multiple chains co-existing on Web3, there are cases where a user has multiple addresses or avatars on different main chains. Bit islands will gradually support search and aggregation of information on different main chains to provide users with seamless Web3 search services.
In the long run, Bit islands will gradually support more Web2 and Web3 identities to establish an integrated Web3 hub that can connect seamlessly to any platform. With all the social information gathered and distributed in the hub, Bit islands will drive the 4 billion Web2 social users to move into the Web3 world.
