WHAT IS MITHRIL?
Mithril is a decentralized social network ecosystem that rewards the contributions of content creators through a “Social Mining” process - an incentive structure that allows content publishers and consumers to earn MITH tokens based on activity within the ecosystem.
Through Social Mining, publishers are able to capture value generated by the content they create and users can be rewarded based on social activity and interaction with content they consume.
The ecosystem currently consists of three core components:
1. MITH Token: A token earned as a reward for content publishing or consumption (likes, shares, comments, etc.) that can also be staked to accelerate earnings, exchanged for digital assets or used for payment of goods & services.
2. Lit: Social media application and first platform to support Mithril’s Social Mining process, with features such as instant messaging, “Stories” and “Explore.” Lit can already be downloaded from both the App Store and Google Play.
Mithril Vault: Software wallet that allows users to store their rewards (MITH tokens), stake them
for additional MITH token earnings and exchange them for other digital assets. MITH tokens generated
through Social Mining are held in each user’s Mithril Vault, which also supports seamless payments to
various application services.
With the social mining concept, the Mithril ecosystem is structured to encourage viral sharing of content by rewarding users for a number of factors such as influence, activity, reach and staking. As the first example of this incentive structure, Lit, the decentralized social media application, has attracted over 100,000 users in a few months with minimal paid marketing.

Social Community Overview & Strategy
Mithril has a global community with a primary concentration in Asia (Taiwan, Korea, China).
Mithril’s go to market strategy is designed to encourage users to bring the social circles from other networks into the Mithril ecosystem, which will allow them to mine MITH for sharing and consuming content. Core to this strategy is leveraging strategic partnerships with other social platforms that have large user bases who are interested in compensation for their social efforts.
The initial step in this user acquisition strategy is a partnership with M17 Entertainment, a global media company with more than 40MM users and a large network of content creators. As part of the strategic partnership, M17 accepts payments using MITH and sends payments to content creators using MITH.
Additionally, Mithril will continue to grow the community through grassroots initiatives including meetups, conferences and social media engagement.
Mithril has active social communities where the team can share updates, engage with users and address concerns. Notably, Mithril posts weekly updates on Medium specific to commercial, product and technology progress to keep users constantly informed on the status of the project and ability to execute against disclosed milestones.
Mithril has several sets of key competitors across social media platforms, social media focused coins and
traditional social media companies.
For the purpose of this comparison, we have focused exclusively on digital asset competitors.
