Did you know?! Fun Hack Fact Friday

Did you know?!

Radiks is a framework made for Blockstack that can be used to build rich, social apps. Radiks is great at real-time collaboration and aggregating public data from many users—so the Blockstack core team built Banter to road-test these abilities.

Here are a few killer-features any app developer can easily integrate into their Blockstack app:

  • Real-time updates
  • Social notifications
  • Server-side rendering and performance enhancements

Check out the full blog post for more details on how you can use Radiks in your Blockstack app for the Can’t Be Evil Contest!
