Our community reads hundreds of sources per month. Some
of them are big news and mainstream Vitalik essays. But
some of them are fresh, niche essays found at the edges
of the Internet.
So you don't need to scroll Twitter for hours, hoping
you'd find some valuable content. If it really matters,
you can find it on Kiwi.
Truly interdisciplinary perspective
“Kiwi is a feed for the builder’s mind” as Les Greys
So we cover all crypto-adjacent subjects that a smart
curious engineer might find interesting - from tech,
through economics, game theory, and sociology, up to
culture and growth.

We are people building the decentralized future -
primarily web3 founders, developers, and creators.
We believe in a constructive dialogue and co-creation -
whether it’s doing a Pull Request to a project we like
or sharing an honest feedback with its founder.
Decentralized & Open Source from Day 1
Kiwi has been built on a Kiwi P2P Protocol. It means
that everyone can run a node and permissionlessly create
their own Kiwi app.
We already seen that happening with freeatnet’skiwinews.lol and matallo's Kiwi SearchWe also share parts of our treasury to the most active
contributors - in the last round we distributed over 3.5

Note from founders
We know how it all started. Satoshi created Bitcoin because
people were being screwed by the financial system. And the
Bitcoin community wanted to create a more fair financial
system where people - not the FED - are in power. It seemed
like a crazy idea back then.
Few people believed it, many ridiculed it. But thanks to
those who had enough intellectual courage to rethink the
world they live in, the world has changed. Years have gone
by and in the meantime, crypto helped to make many people
rich. Big money brought many scammers and the last few years
were dominated by exploits, stolen money, and scams.
But as we started learning more about tokens, some people
also learned that crypto might be a tool to create a fairer
version of many other areas of our life. We could rethink
not only finance but also art markets, gaming, and social
media. But just like Bitcoin's creators, these crypto-native
entrepreneurs are ridiculed too. And it's a fair point:
rebuilding whole industries is hard and unlikely to succeed.
To have any chance of succeeding, we need a space
where builders can exchange their ideas. A place where
thoughts can clash: from game theory and economics, through
psychology and arts up to governance and tech. But this
content is hard to find. Distribution is centralized among a
few big Twitter accounts and newsletters.
And although we can find many great ideas in those
centralized communities, the freshest insights can usually
be found at the edges, among people who are less popular
since they spend their days doing research and coding - not
dedicating every minute to grow their audience. So the idea
behind Kiwi is to go back to the roots. Promote content
close to the crypto values that make us rethink the world we
live in. And create an arena where this content can compete
and the best ideas can win.
In web2, we once had a tool for that. But as years
went by HackerNews transformed into a pessimistic and
progress-skeptical space. So we want to rebuild it from
scratch. Just like Uniswap rethought Coinbase and Farcaster
rethinks Twitter, Kiwi rethinks HackerNews and content
distribution in general. We believe you shouldn’t doom
scroll Twitter for 3 hours to find good content.
You should be able stumble upon content
serendipitously, without bringing your dopamine levels out
of balance. That’s why it's time to rethink news aggregation
from the ground up.
Not by building yet another app: But by giving our users the
freedom to access the same content across different clients
and by allowing everyone to choose their moderation rules.
By building Kiwi primarily as a protocol, and then as an
app, we're enabling anyone to fork us, hence bootstrapping
Because as David Hoffman says: “Crypto wasn’t made to
make you rich. Crypto was to set you free”.
