Sapien is more than just a platform - it’s a movement that urges users to take back control of their social experience. By leveraging blockchain technology, Sapien is a fundamental paradigm shift in the way we interact, influence, and transact within online communities.

The Sapien Platform

Sapien is a Web3 social news platform that gives users control of their data, rewards content creators, and fights fake news. Web3 technologies (e.g. blockchain, IPFS, web torrents) will serve as the underlying infrastructure to create a highly customizable, democratized social network without centralized intermediaries.

The Sapien Network

The Sapien Network consists of the Sapien platform, marketplace, API integrations, and third-party applications, all connected and powered by SPN, an Ethereum-based utility token.

Buyers & Sellers

Users will be able to purchase and sell physical and virtual goods, services and premium content on the Sapien marketplace using SPN tokens. Reputation scores will be integrated into the marketplace, enabling users to be confident that the vendor they are purchasing from is reliable.


Sapien will charge a transaction fee to buyers and sellers on the Sapien marketplace which reduces as they meet certain thresholds of staked SPN. The thresholds will be determined with the Adaptive Staking model.

Ad Platform


User privacy is a critical part of our philosophy and as such we will allow users to have complete control over their relationship with advertisements on Sapien. By default, users will see no advertisements and no personal user data will be collected without a user’s knowledge. If a user so desires, they can opt-in for Sapien to collect and allow advertisers to show ads to them. The more staked SPN a user has, the more SPN tokens they will receive for enabling advertisements.


Ads will be purchasable on Sapien with SPN tokens and will be served to users who have enabled them. Advertisers will receive a substantial discount for purchasing ads with SPN tokens. Advertisers will also be able to place ads on public Tribes that align with their target audience. The advertising experience will be similar to existing social platforms, except a large percent of ad revenue will be given to users.


The majority of revenue earned from ad purchases will be distributed to users who have enabled ads. Users will receive at least 50 percent of the revenue from ad purchases. The ratio of revenue distributed is dynamic and will be adjusted to keep the platform afloat. All ad transactions will be publicly viewable on This way, Sapien can assure transparency and our users will retain full control over their experience on the platform.
