Afari is a decentralized social network that gives people greater control over their data and privacy, and helps creators monetize their content that others enjoy. On Afari, user data isn’t kept with the company, but with users, in storage that users own, thanks to Afari’s partnership with Blockchain infrastructure company Blockstack. Afari was co-founded by 3 Princeton Computer Science graduates with research experience in Blockchain technology and computer systems. Afari won 1st place in the TigerLaunch student startup competition, completed the Princeton eLab Startup Accelerator and secured $100k in seed funding from the Blockstack Signature Fund for decentralized applications.
