      Here is a Beginner's Guide that makes it easy.


      What is BitClout?

      BitClout is a new type of social network that lets you speculate on people and posts with real money, and it’s built from the ground up as its own custom blockchain.


      Its architecture is similar to Bitcoin, only it can support complex social network data like posts, profiles, follows, speculation features, and much more at significantly higher throughput and scale.


      Like Bitcoin, BitClout is a fully open-source project and there is no company behind it-- it’s just coins and code

      Save your Seed Phrase!

      Very important that you keep your seed phrase safe. Write it down with pen and paper or put it in password manager. Just make sure it's somewhere secure. If you lose it you will NOT be able to recover it, and even more importantly you will not be able to get back into your account.

      Press COPY to save it to your clipboard and store it safely
