For many years, Wikipedia has been the quickest source of information for most people. Physical encyclopedias have been replaced by this online hub of knowledge and data, which are provided by contributors all over the world.
In recent years, decentralized versions of Wikipedia and other information sites have popped up. What’s attractive about these educational DApps is that they reward their contributors with digital currencies for simply submitting an article with citations or voting or editing content.
Some of the DApps are:
Everipedia is an EOS-based DApp that greatly resembles Wikipedia. Their difference is that Everipedia rewards its contributors with IQ tokens for creating articles focusing on various topics and approving or rejecting content and edits.
To ensure the articles posted on the decentralized encyclopedia is factual, contributors are required to cite their sources in their articles, with a minimum of three citations.
Built on top of the Ethereum blockchain, Lunyr seeks to become a hub of peer-reviewed information provided by contributors in its network. This DApps aims to develop a knowledge base application programming interface for developers seeking to create decentralized applications in artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, and other software.
Lunyr incentivizes information contributors with ERC20-standard LUN tokens for developing and reviewing content.
Also powered by the EOS network, Trybe actually hosts articles related to blockchain and cryptocurrency. Contributors are rewarded with TRYBE tokens for staying active in the DApp’s ecosystem, such as simply joining the community and referring friends. The DApp also serves as a place where community members can connect with each other.
