AdTech Innovation

On The Blockchain

Knowledge.io was launched with the vision to reward people for their knowledge. The data accumulated via engagement in the Knowledge Ecosystem will subsequently form the KnowledgeScore. Never before have advertisers and marketers been able to target audiences based upon immutable competency ratings generated from their online engagements.

The Knowledge Ecosystem

KnowledgeAds

KnowledgeAds is our Adtech platform where digital advertising campaigns can be deployed across our growing Ad Network, and managed from a simple web based interface. KnowledgeAds Features a unique response based ad creative called Q&Ads, in addition to traditional display and rich media ad types.

Trivia Spar

Trivia Spar is Knowledge.io’s first mobile trivia app with over 19 million trivia questions from data sources such as TiVo and Oxford University Press. Quiz responses are stored on the blockchain in the form of the KnowledgeScore which determines a user’s objective understanding on a variety of topics, products and services.

Knowledge Marketplace

The Knowledge Marketplace is an upcoming ecommerce website where retail products can be purchased using KNW Token, Bitcoin, Ethereum and USD. The Marketplace will be integrated with Knowledge Ads, giving advertisers the opportunity to list retail products on the marketplace using our marketplace builder.

KnowledgeBot

The KnowledgeBot is a trivia quiz bot for Telegram groups & channels, with auto messaging and scheduling capabilities all managed from a simple web based dashboard. The KnowledgeBot gives participating groups the opportunity to reward KNW Token to winners, as well as their own ERC-20 or Waves-NG tokens.

The KnowledgeScore

The heart of the Knowledge Ecosystem is our innovative method of competency rating called the KnowledgeScore. A brand new way for people to prove what they know by answering questions, and have them verified and recorded using blockchain technology. Our technology will be able to deliver those questions to millions of users through our ecosystem, and partner apps.

Knowledge Score Overview

A Growing Ecosystem

Our partner relationships are growing rapidly. Currently we are partnered with Gaming Grids, Coinomi, Tivo and IKL.

Are Knowledge tokens the sole means of a payment inside the system? How will you attract new fiat money to the system after the ico is finished?

Yes, only Knowledge tokens are used inside the system as the exclusive method of payment. Advertisers who wish to advertise on the platform must purchase a digital currency like Bitcoin or Ethereum from an exchange in order to convert to Knowledge tokens for use on the platform. Advertisers are increasingly holding the major currencies like Bitcoin, and during their onboarding process to the platform, they are given explicit instructions on how to convert from fiat to a digital currency. Additionally, they can contact our support staff 24/7 and we are there to assist them.

Why is the knowledge ecosystem revolutionary?

  • Targeting users and communicating an appropriate message at scale based on deterministic data regarding knowledge level about a topic or set of topics has not been achievable in the history of marketing.
  • Rewarding people for their knowledge at scale has not been achievable in the past.
  • Understanding the knowledge level of a user about topics in the context of selling products is an improvement on the current ecommerce reviews and ratings model. By sharing your knowledge with the community, you enable better purchasing decisions within the community and improved buyer satisfaction.

What are your product's key differences to your competitors?

  • Most ad tech platforms build personas on people based on consumption of content. The Knowledge ecosystem adds a new dimension to this data by scoring the knowledge level of people about topics, allowing advertisers to engage with people in a more effective way by customizing the messaging to people based on knowing where the user is within the knowledge funnel. The knowledge funnel is a concept that allows advertisers to understand the level of knowledge or skill of their audience and target ads to them based on these attributes.
  • Our Q&Ads platform is used to measure the knowledge level of the user by measuring correctness, incorrectness, the amount of engagement and score, and/or intent in cases where there is no correct or incorrect answer, as well as absence of knowledge and/or lack of measurement, with a topic or set of topics. All of this data is built into our private blockchain, accessible to partners on the ads platform, and via analysis of the blockchain, partners and advertisers can analyze timeseries data to see how knowledge level increases over time with a topic, adding yet another dimension to the data that can be used in the highly advanced computational advertising platforms available today.
  • Additionally, the blockchain solution solves a major problem in the ad tech space, that of fraud and bots.  Statistical outliers are quickly discovered, and there is a greater risk to partners who either unknowingly or willingly permit this sort of activity in attempt to earn Knowledge tokens on the platform.  There are many ways that analyzing correct and incorrect answers can limit the potential for fraud, and where identity can be verified.
  • At some point, knowledge token holders will want to spend their tokens in the marketplace, in which case their identity will be confirmed in order to ship product to them, and/or view their token balance in which case their identity will be validated, and/or they will want to sell their tokens on an exchange, in which case they will need to go through an identity verification process.
  • Users are also encouraged to become Knowledge Stars on behalf of advertiser products in the marketplace, system that far outweighs the aggregate, random reviewer because these Knowledge Stars have provided proof in the form or correct answers about topics related to those brands, products, services, and/or solutions.  On the workforce side of things, this also works with skills, where the products are jobs, the advertisements are measurement of skill, and the brand is the employer.
  • Finally, our system rewards users for sharing their data, and unlike the platforms today that collect, analyze and use this data to sell advertising without rewarding the user, our users earn Knowledge.

How big is your customer base?

At launch of our platform, we have a customer base of 5 million MAU through our partnership with our premiere partner GamingGrids. We expect to have a user base of 250,000 MAU on Trivia Spar within the first 6 months of launch. As we add partners via our planned SDK and APIs, the user base will grow, and when we deploy via the programmatic ad exchanges, the user base will grow exponentially.
