Additional Use Cases

 

 

Employee Rewards

Skilled employees can be resistant to change. “We’ve always done it this way” is every change manager’s least favorite phrase. And technology which increases efficiency can be perceived as a threat to longtime employees even when management wants to retain their institutional knowledge. The Knowledge Token presents an opportunity to excite a workforce to break their habits and earn rewards for learning, expediting modernization and improving morale. This also reduces dedicated training time spent away from production, improving the organization’s bottom line during changes.

Consumer Education

Consumers have access to tremendous amounts of information through formal and informal media channels. Unfortunately, much of that information is biased based on brand loyalists, “PR friendly” ambassadors, paid reviews, and other marketing efforts. Use of Knowledge Tokens to drive learning can help savvy consumers or underdog brands break this cycle. The Knowledge Tokens can be used to offer or drive education related to specific products, classes of products, preferred or nonpreferred brands, and other topics to ensure complete information and broader representation in the marketplace.

App Adoption

How does an app – particularly one including educational components – stand out in a crowded field of options? The Knowledge Token provides an answer. By offering a reward tied to rank-able Knowledge Scores which function across a variety of apps and platforms, users are incentivized in multiple ways, seeking prizes and renown. The aligned network of apps on Knowledge.ios platform will be complementary and mutually supporting, rather than competing for proprietary adoption.

Yes, only Knowledge tokens are used inside the system as the exclusive method of payment.  Knowledge tokens will also be available for purchase on the popular cryptocurrency exchanges.  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, or once available, they can purchase Knowledge tokens directly on an exchange.  Advertisers are increasingly investing in 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

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.
