First Run: Stages 1 & 2 open
Enough of the noise.
Let's build a world designed to make us grow.
Butterfy is a fundamentally new system for finding and rewarding meaningful content. Decentralized, self-sustaining, open. Healthy and substantial, instead of toxic and sensational. No more paywalls and advertisements, no more attention and data mining.
The reinvention of media's business model is necessary to achieve this:
Important stories and voices must get heard regardless of who they are, where they live, or what they have.
Submit a link at Stage 1
We are doing a first run of Butterfy (while developing the full system). Go to Stage 1 (Typeform) >>
Let's find the signal within the noise. Submit a meaningful link and then get sent to Stage 2 where you see other people's valuable submissions.
How will it work?
Content is crowd-filtered in 4 stages. You start at stage 1 and move further if you curate content that people at the next stage deem meaningful.
In stages 1 & 2 you see all content for free in return for filtering. If you do that well (and only if you want to) you are allowed to move to stages 3 & 4 where the content quality is much higher. And there you pay only for the pieces that you find meaningful. Those pieces then go to the next stage.
Crucial: The money is always split and goes directly back to the content creator, the people who filtered that piece of content for you, and the platform.

What Butterfy is not
Butterfy is not a social network or anything like that.
It aims to become an alternative
to social media and traditional media. Similar to how a place with healthy food is an alternative to a fast food chain. Butterfy wants to amplify deep, meaningful, substantial content. However, there is always a use case for other forms of media like Twitter which feeds you bite-sized news almost instantly.
So, to quickly serve you with short news about the project we use Twitter.
