Mask Network has recently established a partnership between Mirror Protocol, a synthetic assets protocol powered by Terraform Labs. Mirror Protocol is the first synthetic assets protocol that tracks the price of real-world assets such as US stock markets, futures, exchange-traded funds, etc. The cooperation between these two projects will enable users to view price charts and trade synthetic assets (mAssets) on Twitter directly. This will be massive progress accomplished by Mask Network in the field of open finance, which would closely glue crypto assets and global finance together.

Mask Network has already launched a feature which supports viewing crypto price charts and direct trading on Twitter. After setting up the Mask Plug-in, users can acquire the info of the token on the search page of Twitter, or hover the mouse to any “$+ticker”, like $ETH or $MIR, then our widget will automatically detect it and pop up with the latest chart of the token. …


Since the announcement of the ITO feature, we have received numerous inquiries and requests to join the first batch of Twitter offerings. After some careful consideration, we have decided to partner with Loopring for the first-ever Initial Twitter Offering! A few more projects are also waiting in the queue.

With the introduction of Transak, users can purchase cryptocurrencies directly on major social networks like Twitter and Facebook, thus directly entering the open finance ecosystem enabled by cryptocurrency. This is to facilitate the general public’s understanding and usage of crypto, thereby allowing more users to enter the space.

The updated version of Mask Network with Transak has gone through extensive testing since early December. (Details: Fiat on-ramp & DEXs: Announcement of the New Version of Mask Network)

What is ITO (Initial Twitter offering)?

Like what we have done to other popular DApps, we want users to be able to directly participate in public offerings on Twitter. Seeing a KOL shilling some projects you like and that they are raising fund? …

More Trading Information

On Sep 24, Mask Network launched a new feature which supported viewing crypto price charts and direct trading on Twitter. The launch of this trading widget was a blast. The data source is powered by CoinMarketCap. After setting up the Mask Plug-in, the users can hover the mouse to any “$+ticker” like $BTC or $ETH, then our widget will automatically detect and pop up with the latest price chart of the token. …


This article is written by Orange Paper(橙皮书) and translated by Tianyu M. Fang. The Mask Network team supported the translation as well. In our perspective, it’s a bold step of Twitter to announce its plan of decentralization last December, though we haven’t heard any news since then. It’s a long term effort to build the portal to the new Internet on top of existing platforms, and Mask Network would like to facilitate this journey.

If Bitcoin had existed before Twitter, would the history of social networking have been rewritten?

After Mask Network launched its Twitter trading widget on 24th Sep, the project was very well received by the crypto community and drew us a number of investors.

Mask Network is introducing another product involving Non-fungible Tokens (NFT) and NFT-based e-commerce. But before delving into it, we would like to discuss our view of a tokenized future.

Our view of the tokenized future

First, we have to clarify a few definitions. Items are either fungible or non-fungible. Digital money is fungible. A liter of water is fungible. But in general, most of the physical and digital goods are non-fungible. …


Dear Fellow Cyber Citizen,

Today, we are excited to announce that our brand name will be changed from “Maskbook” to “Mask Network”, effective as of October 9, 2020. The name change is the result of a rebranding effort designed to reflect the progress we have achieved and the wide spectrum of services we have delivered to our users.

In short, we want to bridge the New, Open Internet right on top of the current one.

TL;DR🗞️

Mask Network (originally named Maskbook) is a portal that allows users to seamlessly send encrypted messages, cryptocurrencies, and even DApps (Defi, NFTs, DAO) over the top of social networks without migrating, and thereby creating a decentralized Applet(DApplet) ecosystem. In short, we want to bridge the New, Open Internet right on top of the current one.

An Overview 🔍

Instead of creating a new platform, Mask Network aims to bridge Web2 (the current web) and so-called Web3, to empower the general public to use the better web within the current mainstream platforms, without using any API or centralized server.

Our Vision 🚩

People live on the Internet. The current version of the internet consists of big techs after big techs where people essentially have to give up control of their own autonomy and cannot even get a breathing room in between the platforms. Many want to overthrow them by starting new ones.
