Minds is an encrypted, open source social networking platform for Internet users worldwide which is backed by Anonymous and is being developed by Kramnorth Limited.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Main differences to competitors such as Facebook are the site's usage of end-to-end encryption, that it rewards people for active participation (such as voting, interacting with posts, commenting or uploading) by giving points that can be exchanged for views[1][9] and that it doesn't rely on extracting value out of large amounts of data which can be sold to advertisement agencies but instead relies on promoted posts for advertising revenue.[3]
