I have been turned onto WAX blockchain through a promotion done within the Upland team and the upcoming release of Blockchain Heroes cards that will be launching as NFTs on the WAX chain.

All the dapps are designed to work with it and it's integration is dominant across the chain.
Howdoo is setting itself up to take on the world of social media. It seems from looking over the available information that it wants to do a little bit of everything. It seems at first glance to want to be facebook, and instagram and youtube and anyone else that publishes media or content of, well, any kind. They are taking a big swing, so let's try and dig into what's going on here and how they plan to do it.

Want a total social experience? You got it." Howdoo users will experience "a fairer, clearer, higher-quality social media experience where you’re always in control."
