We live in a digital world. The internet has become the fabric that weaves us together through communication, finance, data storage and beyond. The internet was designed to be a secure, censorshipfree and decentralized interconnected web of information and communication. In todays world, this is not the case. Corporations leak our personal and private data to the highest bidder, they impede our speech towards their own bias, and they hoard profits for only themselves. The internet was designed to be a product that would benefit humanity. Instead, it has become a platform where people and attention are sold to the highest bidder. We have become the product.
We deserve better.
Uptrennd is a new-era social media platform, created with the sole purpose of empowering the people. Uptrennd stands on four foundational pillars: Freedom of Speech, Data Security, Equality of Opportunity and Distribution of Wealth. On Uptrennd, your private information will never permisionlessly be sold, and you will earn ~80% of all advertising revenue generated on the platform, alongside all other members. Uptrennd is a movement to shift the wealth and power from the corporations, back to the people. Bloggers, photographers, videographers, musicians, podcasters, selfie-aficionados, and all other content creators, are now able to monetize and thrive through their posts and passions like never before.
Every time a member’s post or comment is upvoted, they receive rewards. The higher a members level, the more rewards they can earn. At level one, members earn one token per upvote. Each token on the platform is sold at a base rate of $0.05. Upvoting is free. To prevent “upvote spam”, a downvote function is also included that allows for the members of the Uptrennd community to self-regulate content.
Uptrennd is kickstarting the sharing economy like never before, in a model that allows others to invest in you and your content. When another member shares your post, and it’s then upvoted on their feed, you’ll split the profits 50/50. During the initial growth phase of Uptrennd, the conversation will be focused on the niche of cryptocurrency. Currently, there is no adequate “one-stop-shop” for crypto news, education, and resources. Uptrennd fills that void, from absolute beginners, to those looking to vastly deepen their knowledge. Uptrennd will bring the crypto world to one unified home.
As the community grows, (6months-1yr) topics will slowly branch out into a diverse ecosystem across all topics, making Uptrend the most secure and profitable platform to share any content online.Uptrennd White Paper Jan 2018 -
