Prepare Your Web3 Wallet

To get started on Friend.tech, you’ll need a Web3 wallet like MetaMask that supports the Coinbase Base layer-2 network. Send some ETH from your main wallet to your Base network address to fund your Friend.tech activities. Make sure to add the Base network to your wallet before transferring ETH to avoid any mishaps.

Set Up Your Friend.tech Account

After funding your Base wallet, head to the Friend.tech site and create an account. The platform is currently only accessible on mobile. After registering, deposit ETH funds from your Base wallet into your Friend.tech wallet. Now you’re ready to buy and sell social tokens tied to your favorite creators and influencers.

Buy Tokens on Friend.tech

To purchase tokens, search for the account handle of the influencer you want to invest in. Select the “Trade” tab on their profile to buy tokens at the current market price. The more exclusive access to an influencer you want through private chats, the more tokens you’ll need to purchase.

Sell Tokens for Profit

There are two ways to potentially profit from holding influencer tokens. First, you earn a portion of the fees whenever new users buy that influencer’s tokens. The more token holders an account has, the higher the value of the tokens and fees.

You can also look for undervalued tokens and buy them at lower prices before reselling them at higher prices when their demand increases. This is similar to trading stocks based on growth potential.


By allowing decentralized ownership and trade of social media influence, Friend.tech has introduced a new paradigm for monetizing online personalities. While risky like any speculative market, its trading mechanisms offer savvy users profit opportunities.
