ERC-1577 Integration with RSS3 Social

About ERC-1577

ERC-1577 introduces a new contenthash field for ENS resolvers, aiming to standardize the way names map to network and content addresses. This enhancement ensures a more consistent system for applications to resolve ENS names to content on distributed systems like IPFS and Swarm. As part of this proposal, the content and multihash fields are deprecated.


ERC-1577's contenthash field standardizes ENS name resolutions to decentralized content. However, this content is challenging to retrieve and isn't indexed by conventional search engines. RSS3 Social Solution bridges this gap, making decentralized content easily discoverable and accessible to all Open Web builders.

Access ERC-1577 Content with RSS3


While ERC-1577 aimed to standardize ENS name resolutions to distributed content, a significant challenge arose. Content stored on decentralized platforms isn't easily discoverable since it's not indexed by traditional search engines like Google. This poses a barrier for users trying to access decentralized content. Meanwhile, the nature of decentralized storages makes it also not easy for developers to pull the content data effectively.


  1. Discoverability: Content stored on decentralized systems isn't indexed by standard search engines, making it hard for users to find and access.
  2. User Experience: The difficulty in discovering content can deter users from engaging with decentralized platforms, leading to a fragmented experience.
  3. Development Efficiency: Content stored on different decentralized storages have their own data format and attributes, taking developers extra efforts into aggregating them together.

Solution: RSS3 Social

RSS3 Social Solution, with its prowess in structuring on-chain data, emerged as a complementary solution to access ERC-1577 content:

  1. Enhanced Discoverability: RSS3 Social Solution indexes and processes on-chain data, making decentralized content easily discoverable and accessible.
  2. Unified User Experience: By making content easily retrievable, RSS3 ensures users have a seamless experience when accessing decentralized content.
  3. Accelerated Development: With just one API call, developers can retrieve all the content related data, either using keywords or using ENS addresses.


  1. Easy Access to Decentralized Content: With RSS3's indexing capabilities, social apps can effortlessly offer users a better content discovery experience - allowing them to look up content stored on decentralized platforms by both address and keyword.
  2. Increased Engagement: As decentralized content becomes more accessible, there's a surge in user engagement and interaction.
  3. Improved Development Process: By laying off the tedious data indexing and structuring to RSS3, builders enjoy a much more streamlined development process.

In summary, RSS3 Social Solution supports indexing decentralized ERC-1577 content, ensuring easy discoverability and access of the content and enriching the Open Social landscape.
