We are pleased to announce that the first, 3rd party application built on top of DECENT Network, PUBLIQ, is being developed!
PUBLIQ is a free of charge application for sharing digital content (specifically news and articles) built on top of DECENT Network by an independent development team. The rewards distributed in PUBLIQ are based on the reputation of the authors. Reputation is built exclusively from the views and feedback of its readers.
PUBLIQ’s instant rewarding process encourages and incentivizes authors to share their talents with the world. Rewards are assigned on a daily basis to authors depending on their PUBLIQ Score, i.e. a reputation-scoring system created entirely from the readers’ views and feedback. This unique evaluation system will allow authors to be more fairly rewarded, as well as praised or celebrated for their good work.
PUBLIQ also offers an intermediary free experience to advertisers. Assisted by a proprietary algorithm which guarantees highly optimized placements, advertisers are granted direct and frictionless access to place their ads into the PUBLIQ ecosystem.
The content posted on PUBLIQ is free for any channel to broadcast. Channels, as well as, any other parties are unable to censor the articles. Branding features (such as topics, dates, number of likes and other parameters) are available to facilitate content selection. Channels get the chance to be rewarded depending on the traffic they generate from the PUBLIQ content.
“The cooperation between DECENT and PUBLIQ happened naturally. Myself and Matej Michalko started to discuss the idea of creating a blockchain based ecosystem for online publishing, including a layer of fair reputation and reward management. We decided at PUBLIQ to utilize the solid Peer to Peer data distribution protocol built by DECENT to incentivize seeders to participate in sustaining the ecosystem. We are both working on reshaping the media industry, so it really makes sense for us to collaborate!” said Alexandre TABBAKH CEO, PUBLIQ Foundation.
“We are thrilled to see DECENT Network being adopted and used by innovative companies so quickly after our official launch. PUBLIQ is a perfect example of a well-designed project using our technology for the purpose in which it is intended, to bring content to the consumer without middleman controls or third party censorship.” said Matej Michalko, founder and CEO DECENT.
PUBLIQ is a non profit foundation that places authors at the center of the publishing and digital media industry by offering them an efficient and reliable ecosystem to interact and thrive in. Authors have access to a free, secure and censorship resistant platform where they can upload their work, protect them adequately within the latest blockchain architecture and have them thereafter safely distributed. Intermediaries or traditional publishing houses, which used to control the author in his or her work, are removed from the chain of creation and distribution.
