Kuende Decentralized Social Media Blockchain App to Gamify Engagement and Reward Users
Real-Life Interactions In Social Media Now Rewarded Through Decentralized App
Social media has become an important part of our daily life. But do we remember everything what we have done on social media? Probably not, which might not be something positive. Everything gets lost in the internet, every like or comment we give to memes and other stories.
It can also be somehow not good for our health. There are different studies that show that users tend to compare the ‘perfect’ pictures and videos posted on social media with their own lives.
According to statista, we spend over 135 minutes a day browsing, reading and posting things on social media. Nonetheless, a new blockchain project aims to change these things and provide a new way to interact with other people.
Kuende is known as a ‘hybrid online-offline social network’ that aims at creating new physical meetings and friendships within participants. The company is currently targeting millennials between 22 and 37 years old and Generation X, which is aged between 13 and 23.
With this platform, Kuende will be connecting people with similar interests and gamify socialization in the real world. In this way, users would be able to create a healthy social life without extra costs. Moreover, Kuende says that it wants community businesses to play an important role and arrange these challenges. This would also help to reduce the number of ads displayed to users.
Kuende explains that it is working in order to make a positive impact creating social interactions between individuals that before were not possible with the current social media.
The company is working in order to produce a positive impact in the community and provide people a chance to express themselves in different ways.
About It, Kuende Explained:
“Our mission grew out of seeing a world full of teenagers allowing digital interactions to replace real ones, creating significant personal harm.”
It is important to mention that the project has received $2.6 million dollars of investment and it was able to deliver different products on time during the last three years. Moreover, Kuende was able to reach its $2 million dollars soft cap for the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in just a few days.
At the moment, the applications for websites and smartphones are already available. Until now,, the apps have been downloaded more than 20,000 times and in Android it has a 4.8 rating on the Google Play Store.
Moreover, Charlie Shrem is currently part of Kuende’s advisors. Shrem is a cryptocurrency early adopter and has worked in order to promote a decentralized world. Shrem believed in Kuende because it has an experienced team that is working behind it. Moreover, the social network was already running
At the moment, the social network is planning to attract users from the Asian market. There are several governments that are encouraging individuals to have more offline interactions, something that is clearly in line with what the company promotes.
Kuende is working so as to develop its own blockchain technology that uses Tendermint technology for the Cosmos ecosystem. In this way, Kuende will be able to offer privacy, security and performance without compromises.
A whitelisting process is currently taking place until October 15. This would be followed by a public sale that will run from October 19 to November 2. This would help the platform be developed and improved.
