Update March 20, 2017: We'd like to announce our new advisory board member, Dr. Greg Colvin, who works on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) for the Ethereum Foundation. See his biography below.






LUNYR CROWDSALE
Starts on March 29, 2017 at 16:00 UTC
Ends on April 26, 2017 at 16:00 UTC

White Paper

What is Lunyr?
Lunyr (pronounced “lunar”) is an Ethereum-based decentralized crowdsourced encyclopedia which rewards users with app tokens for peer-reviewing and contributing information. We aim to be the starting point of the internet for finding reliable, accurate information. Our long-term vision is to develop a knowledge base API that developers can use to create next generation decentralized applications in Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and more.

What are Lunyr tokens (LUN)?
LUN are used to place ads on the platform. They function as part of the incentive system to drive contribution, peer review, and dispute and quality resolution. LUN follow the ERC20 token standard.

Lunyr in the News

          

          

     

The Team

The Lunyr team consists of serial entrepreneurs, technical leaders, and successful advisors. Each core team member has cofounded at least one startup. All together, the team possesses the capabilities to not only build the project, but also create and grow a viable business. The leadership team actively contributes to the Ethereum community and organizes the second largest Ethereum meetup in Silicon Valley.

     Arnold Pham | Project Lead, Cofounder

Arnold cofounded Leandigest Inc., a Silicon Valley-based tech startup, as CEO. He started programming in C++ at the age of eight, and later on, was an evangelist of BitTorrent and Bitcoin. As an Ethereum activist, he organizes Ethereum Developers Community, the second largest Ethereum meetup in Silicon Valley, where he also teaches decentralized application development. He graduated from University of California, Los Angeles and University of Pennsylvania.

     Andrew Tran | Business Development, Cofounder

Andrew cofounded Leandigest Inc. as COO. Prior to that, he had built an insurance business with over $10MM in sales. Before entrepreneurship, Andrew worked as a Project Manager, and later, Account Executive at Oracle where he closed the largest ever hardware deal for their small-medium business division. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from University of California, Los Angeles and an MBA from University of California, Davis.

     Benjamin Bamberger | Blockchain Architect

Ben is a veteran Bitcoin blockchain developer. He cofounded a technology-driven marketplace called Evlo as CTO. His previous work includes developing data models and researching Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, and Artificial Intelligence for business applications. He holds a Masters of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.

     Christopher Smith | Blockchain Engineer

Christopher was the Cofounder CTO of BitMesh, a decentralized platform that enables users to share their internet connections. He has developed algorithms for Internet of Things and Deep Learning applications. Christopher possesses over seven years of experience as a software engineer. He was a PhD candidate in Computer Science at University of California, Santa Cruz and holds an M.S. and B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science.

     Steve Yu | Front End Development

Steve specializes in graphics design and front end development. He designed the UI and UX of Ethboards, a decentralized job board concept built on Ethereum for recruiting and connecting developers. He graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in Political Economics and emphasis on International Trade.

     Holly Hernandez | Marketing

Holly provides marketing expertise. She has been developing marketing strategies at Stanford University since 2013. Her prior work consists of creative writing, videography, and art, for which she has received Congressional recognition. She will be graduating from Stanford University this year with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Minor in Creative Writing.

Advisors

     Duc Pham | Security Advisor

Duc is a serial entrepreneur with 30 years of experience in technology innovation. He has built and managed multidisciplinary engineering teams for both startups and public companies. He was the founder and CTO of Vormetric, which was acquired by Thales Group for $400MM. Duc invented Vormetric security and encryption technologies and holds 9 patents as well as 10 patents pending in security and parallel processing.

     Dr. Greg Colvin | Technical Advisor

Dr. Colvin works on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) for the Ethereum Foundation. His work includes pushing the boundaries of EVM performance and evolving the EVM architecture and Ethereum specification. Greg has had decades of technical experience inventing algorithms, designing systems, and programming applications and servers. His experience includes building and leading world class teams.

     Grant Fondo | Legal Counsel

As a partner at Goodwin Procter LLP, Grant specializes in digital currency, blockchain technology, and securities litigation. He is an experienced federal prosecutor and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of California. Grant is the Co-Chair of Goodwin’s Digital Currency + Blockchain Technology Practice, and sits on the board of the Digital Currency and Ledger Defense Coalition as a founding member.

Market

A strategic component of the Lunyr platform is its advertising system, which allows for the purchase of advertising on the platform using Lunyr tokens (“LUN”). Although the Lunyr platform is unique in its design, decentralization, and vision, it can be compared to Wikipedia.

Wikipedia today ranks as the sixth most visited site in the world according to Alexa rankings. It attracts 470 million unique visitors who view over 19 billion pages per month. Estimating the amount of advertising revenue Wikipedia could generate if it allowed advertising on its pages provides clues to the potential demand for LUN:


  • In 2006, Jason Calcanis, the cofounder of Weblogs, Inc, which was acquired by AOL, published an article about Wikipedia estimating an annual advertising revenue potential of $100MM.
  • In 2008, BusinessInsider.com performed an analysis of Wikipedia and arrived at an annual advertising revenue potential of $350MM.
  • In 2011, Vincent Juhel published a thesis about Wikipedia for HEC Paris, and arrived at an annual advertising revenue potential of $1.6 billion dollars.



Vision

We will initially focus on fine-tuning the system to improve accuracy, increase content, and grow readership. Once the knowledge base matures, we will attract a wider audience by encouraging contributions of near real-time data on world events and translations in multiple languages. Ultimately, Lunyr intends to establish its brand globally as a reliable, accurate decentralized knowledge base.

Taking it a step further, we will grow the ecosystem by developing an API that will attract developers. This Lunyr API will allow developers to use the knowledge base as a backbone for creating next generation decentralized applications in Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and more.


Lunyr API
The Lunyr API holds promise for significantly changing existing business models and creating new ones. The Ethereum blockchain currently has no knowledge of the real world, yet most useful applications require real world information. Through the Lunyr API, decentralized applications will be able to tap into the knowledge base and grab accurate data on real world events and information. This leads to immediate benefits for Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications.

Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence projects similar to Siri or Amazon Echo are enhanced with the Lunyr API. When users ask fact-based questions, the decentralized application can dig through the Lunyr knowledge base and provide users with reliable, accurate answers.

Virtual Reality
The Lunyr API will enhance the intimate and visceral experience of interactive virtual worlds. Imagine putting on a virtual reality headset that lets you experience walking on the surface of Mars. As you walk along the cold, red-dusted ground, information about key landmarks and giant dust storms appear. All of this information is drawn from the knowledge base.

Augmented Reality
The Lunyr API can be the foundation for learning-based applications in Augmented Reality. Imagine you are at the beach on a sunny day and you see beautiful flowers by the seashore. You want to know what they are so you put on augmented reality glasses, which will identify the flowers, tap into the knowledge base, and give you all the information you need to satisfy your curiosity.
