They say Superhero is a fully Peer-to-peer (P2P) social money network through which users can tip any Uniform Resource Locator (URL), but I say SuperHero is an exceptional open-source blockchain technology that promotes giving in a decentralized way using æternity blockchain technology. Okay wait, What is æternity?

I think of æternity as a blockchain technology that has a strong aim of solving blockchain scalability issues. However, technically æternity blockchain is an Erlang-based scalable smart contract platform engineered by programming pioneers to address some of the most fundamental challenges native to earlier blockchains; while generally, æternity is an open-source blockchain platform that solves the problem of scalability, usability, efficiency, governance, real-world data, and contract security.

You must be wondering 'why must I even use SuperHero' right? Well if you are an individual that loves to promote someone’s web handwork, give kudos for charity, or really like something on the internet and just want to appreciate the owner(s), then SuperHero is the deal. Below are a few reasons why you would love and use SuperHero;

  1. tips sent through SuperHero are immortalized on æternity blockchain,
  2. tips made through the SuperHero are aggregated and published on,
  3. SuperHero is an open-source project i.e other websites may use this for their own purposes,
  4. with SuperHero, there are no third-party custodians to declare whether a content creator can be monetized or not.

Yes, I know everything that has a positive side also must have a bit of negativity, so what are the Pros and Cons of SuperHero. Listed below are the advantages of SuperHero:

  1. Send tips to URLs
