Userfeeds aims to stop feign news by joining a blockchain to amicable content


Userfeeds is a new startup that has a height that relates blockchain tokens to news discovery. The thought is to fight supposed “fake news” by providing an mercantile inducement to arrange calm well.

The Warsaw formed association has lifted $800k in seed appropriation from BlueYard Capital, Fred Ehrsamh (the Coinbase co-founder) and Piotr Smolen (Dataventures).

The complement of calm ranking and find on a web regulating links, likes, upvotes etc. is damaged since algorithms are gamed by third parties (such as bots and feign news providers) to change what we see on amicable media. That has meant platforms like Facebook ranking feign news aloft than genuine news since it is, for instance, some-more marvellous than tedious and formidable reality. We all know where that led…

So, Userfeeds is “applying a beliefs and methods of Bitcoin and Ethereum to emanate pure and publicly auditable calm networks and ranking algorithms that use digital tokens as ranking signals.” In plain English, that means formulating an review route to calm regulating a Blockchain. Here’s more their thinking.

Its initial product, Userfeeds Engine, will concede users, developers and publishers to run tradition rankings to furnish hunt results, information feeds, recommendation systems, tip 10 lists, and sponsored links.

This would also concede for new business models for publishers and focus developers outward of promotion subscriptions. And potentially softened ‘organic’ calm find for audiences that don’t rest on simply abused amicable media signals such as links, likes, votes etc.

It also creates healthy mercantile barriers that can forestall trolling, spam and cost-free abuse.

The group consists of Maciej Olpinski, co-founder and CEO, who worked for Google and YouTube in their ad product and business organisations. Greg Kapkowski, co-founder and CTO is a comparison program operative with knowledge and patents in metadata assembly algorithms.
