THX

We enable communities to set up peer-to-peer monetary incentives and gamified rewards from pooled funds, increasing engagement and lowering administrative costs. The incentives, or rewards as we like to call them, are governed by communal voting and controlled by an API. Use cases include gamified payments, peer-to-peer lending, donations and saving. We currently offer a Slack and a Drupal integration is coming soon as part of the Blockpool program.

Blockchain Solution Description

Reward Pool A set of smart contracts holding the funds. This governance layer enables members to vote on reward sizes and approve reward distribution.

REST API + reputation

Enables apps to access reward pools. Reputation data is aggregated by measuring activity in the reward pools. This is grouped into constructs like “participation” and “loyalty”. Social software integrates (parts of) these concepts for reward rules to be triggered. Decentralized storage solutions (IPFS) are used to give members control over who can and can not access this data.

We researched this system; Landwehr, J. (2020) “Evaluation of reputation in the context of online social communities”. Further R&D is aimed to develop the UX and algorithms, all while preserving user privacy.

Wallet
