If you ever got caught in a drinking round, you know it's an intense social experience: As everyone at your table is buying drinks for everyone, you can get drunk really fast. RoundOF brings this experience to your smartphone and to the web — without the drinking, actually. So when you take the drinking away, what remains is the round and the buying. A round of people at a virtual table who in turns buy access to that table for their friends. In other words: a social funding method.
RoundOF is a social network that is funded this way. You can join for free at https://roundof.org or use our Android app. You can use RoundOF completely free for your first month. In addition you get a starting credit sufficient to buy another month for someone else. Complete access to RoundOF for a month costs about as much as one or two drinks in a bar – depends on the bar.
The basic rule on RoundOF is: You can’t pay for yourself. You can pay for anyone else though. So on RoundOF everyone needs a little help – just as in real life. It’s beautiful to see people helping each other. On RoundOF this beauty happens all the time. But this is not about organ donation or risking your life for strangers! No Hollywood drama on RoundOF. It’s just about giving a little amount of money from time to time so that someone else can have fun. Spread happiness!
RoundOF is operated by the german journalist Achim Wagenknecht. Achim got tired of ad-financed platforms, searched for an alternative and found the drinking round: RoundOF was born. Andrew Boon and his UNA Inc. provide the technical platform that brings RoundOF to life.
RoundOF left beta by the end of 2020. Now that everything works, we are polishing edges and smoothing the gui. RoundOF is ready to use. You can post a status, upload images, comment, like, and so on.

What RoundOF needs right now are more users to make the community flourish.
