Friend.tech is an exciting new social media platform where users have a financial stake in the creators they support.

In this article, we’ll teach you what Friend.tech is, and how you can use Rainbow with your account to make buying, selling, and supporting your friends a breeze.

What is Friend.tech?

Friend.tech is a social app that allows you to buy “keys” in other users of the app. Once you hold another user’s keys, you are able to access a private chat only accessible to that user and your fellow key-holders. If you want to leave the group chat, you’re able to sell your keys.

The price of a user’s keys is determined by a bonding curve. When you buy a user’s keys when they are new and there’s not much interest, you’ll pay a far lower price than when demand for keys is high. Early keyholders are rewarded, and late keyholders are charged a premium.
