We envision a world in which social media nurtures and cares for the true social needs of its users.
A world where social media creates as much human interaction in real life, as it does digitally.
We believe that, for the betterment of individuals and society alike, both types of social interaction should be properly balanced.
Close to 80% of social media usage is now happening on mobile devices.
The vast majority of these users are in the Gen Z/Millennial demographic.
Because of the addictive nature of social media and smartphones, even when in the physical presence of friends or family,
young people stay glued to their devices. Choosing to interact with friends and family who aren’t with them as opposed to
having healthy human interaction with those right in front of them!
Social media should nurture and care for the needs of its users, by providing not only means to get connected,
entertained and informed, but also support in preserving the value of real life interaction.
It should be used to enhance rather than replace.
With digital interaction substituting real one at a fast pace, Kuende provides a healthier alternative to current
social media networks.
The foundation of Kuende is the Gamified Real World Challenge. Most challenges will involve a physical location
and an action or actions to be taken at that location. Every challenge is created in such a way that users receive
entertainment from the experience, hence the term “Gamified”...
Given the infinite possibilities of locations, hobbies, skills and actions that can be taken in the real world,
Kuende challenges have the potential to create limitless fun and engaging social interactions, promoting the true
nature of human beings.
Here are some examples of the various types of challenges Kuende will host:
Challenge Reward Pool
This pool is designed to incentivise the creator and the voters of a challenge.
Participant Reward Pool
This pool will be distributed between all the users who have participated in
challenges that are not designed as Contest Challenges - have no winner(s).
Contest Reward Pool
The Contest Challenges are designed to be competitive. The creator of a contest challenge
can choose to have a reward pool to be available to one or more winners.
Buy-in Reward Pool
Some challenges will require participants to contribute with a certain amount of Kp as an entry fee.
The sum of all collected Kp will form what’s called the Buy-in Reward Pool, from which the creator will be rewarded.
The Kuende ecosystem must be strong enough to support a healthy, prosperous microeconomy.
Optimizing this economy and empowering the Kuende stakeholders to take an active role in maintaining
and growing this ecosystem requires a strong, platform-dependant system of incentivisation and engagement.
The Kuende economy is designed on two tokens: Kuende Token (KUE) and Kuende Points (Kp)
The Kuende Token (KUE)
Will be generated during our Token Generation Event (TGE) as a ERC20 utility token created for
anyone that believes and supports our vision. The number of KUE users owns in the platform determine the amount
of Kuende Points reward they can gain when engaging with some of the Kuende features.
Some Kuende features, like creating or voting challenges, are only available for KUE owners.
The Kuende Points (Kp)
Will be obtained and used by any Kuende users within the platform.
Its main purpose and utility is to act as an in-app currency that rewards users for their
active involvement and usage of the Kuende environment.
Interest-based, real world interactions between strangers is a primary goal of Kuende.
This being the case, we will rely heavily on our users to create the wide variety of challenges needed.
After all, who can be an expert in all of the infinite niches and hobbies that exist?
By allowing our users to vote on and submit challenges, with their own rules and outcomes,
we can crowdsource challenge creation to the people who matter most, Kuende users themselves!
With the help of the blockchain technology, we are now able to join forces with our users.
Together we can create challenges in a fair, transparent and secure way.
Some examples of challenges we’ve come up with are:
