For xSocial

This section covers information about Subsocial's latest solochain with 2 seconds block time i.e. xSocial.

xSocial is an experimental blockchain built to provide an environment for innovative Web3 social features before they are deployed on the Subsocial mainnet.

This blockchain functions as a standalone Substrate chain (instead of a parachain on Polkadot or Kusama), allowing it to have 2 second block times, and ensuring no serious damage can be caused by bugs.

Developers building on Subsocial can use xSocial to experiment with Subsocial's pallets in a safe environment. You can easily access xSocial from the polkadot.js apps page here.

xSocial currently hosts the application, which needs speed due to the nature of messaging applications, though it will also be ported to the Subsocial mainnet in the future.

xSocial does not yet have an indexer setup up.
