Everipedia is a project of two American students: Sam Kazemian and Theodor Forlijus. In December 2014 they founded the "Wikipedia of the 21st century", where they used a technological leap, that is, to create it, they used the system blockchain.
Comparisons to Wikipedia arise on their own.
Everipedia - "encyclopedia of everything"
For example, in Wikipedia, anyone can enter new information and make changes to existing entries. Often, we may wonder whether the messages provided are reliable and truthful. Many allegations are directed to the authors' subjectivity and lack of data verification.
Wikipediaor "free encyclopedia"Is not a source of knowledge in countries where freedom of speech is at risk. There Everipedia it can become reliable information in every field. Thanks to the decentralization introduced by technology blockchain the information provided will be reliable. An additional advantage is also no high costs generated by maintaining the server room and a lot lower risk of hacker attacks.
What distinguishes Everipedia from Wikipedia?
Differences can also be seen in the approach to the authors. While in Wikipedia, they were volunteers, they will receive their work at Everipedia reward. However, it will not be a traditional remuneration with transfer of funds directly to your account.
In order for an author to write or edit an article, he must have his own tokens (IQ)which he pledges. After positive verification by the users of the published content, after their positive evaluations, the author will be able to recover their IQ tokens and collect additional points. However, if the content introduced into the Everipedia turned out to be fake news, the author loses the token tokens. This method protects against providing false information and increases website credibility, the authors can instead earn IQ tokens.
Currently, Everipedia has around 17 thousands of editors and 3 millions of users per month. She's far from Wikipedia, with her 60, millions of users a day.
However, the authors of Everipedia emphasize that they do not intend to compete with Wikipedia, but only create a new source of real news, also written by women (in Wikipedia, 90% of authors are men).
Everipedia has a chance to become an alternative to Wikipedia, which Wikipedia used to be for printed encyclopedia.
