[ANN]PEERITY.IO: The Social Community-building Platform




CONNECT | CREATE | CONTRIBUTE




What is Peerity.io?


  • A single location for users and communities to find each other, share ideas and content, and organize events.


  • A community-building platform that brings people together, and allows them to shape their communities how they want it. We are aligning the incentives between creators, the network, and consumers. Peerity rewards activity and community-building interactions.


  • Whether you are a new rock band trying to become popular, an art organization throwing an event, a teacher with students you would like to reward, or a company trying to crowdfund a new product, Peerity.io has got you covered.


  • Activity network vs social network- Typical social networks up until now have inspired anti-social behavior. With Peerity we would like to do the opposite, by creating incentive for groups and individuals to create content, organize an event, or perform other acts that will help grow the community. In normal situations, positive social interaction helps grow communities. This is the kind of behavior we want to reward. And this reward comes in the form of the Peerity token.









Why Peerity.io?


There is a general trend towards 'social cooling'. The constant use of traditional media leaves us with a feeling of constant surveillance. Your data is being sold to the highest bidder. The online social media space is one of exploitation.  Users are the cattle, the product is your mind.  You give and give but get nothing in return.  It is rent seeking of the soul. We will NEVER sell user data. You as a user retain the full control over the small amount of data we store.


There is a distinct lack of good and free community building tools in the wild. We will allow communities to gain fully decentralized governance of their community rules and payout structure as they grow in size and activity.



We want to battle the attention economy that is being created by social media sites such as Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram. On these platforms, advertizers are paying the sites for your attention. They are literally paying for your time and attention. But you, the user, are getting nothing in return except more advertizing.




How will it work?


  • Communities are at the heart of peerity. Each person is not an island. We are, and must be, all connected.  By recognizing and rewarding pro-social behavior we enable individuals, communites, and groups to work together to create, connect, and contribute to each other. Activity on Peerity creates peerity tokens which in turn are distributed among the communities and users. They can be used to pay for site features, products from other users, and to reward and patronize work and causes you believe in.



  • Peerity.io will be a social media platform that focuses on communities instead of individuals. Users can join or create communities, create content posts, sell items through built-in e-commerce, organize events both on-and offline, and setup and support crowdfund projects within their communities.



THE PEERITY NETWORK



The Peerity blockchain runs on Tendermint. We decided to use Tendermint because of its superior speed and BFT (Byzantine Fault Tolerance) consensus engine. It also allows us to make our blockchain flexible and dynamic, not just for us but towards other existing projects as well.


Peer Servers are the validators in our Tendermint-based blockchain. They are responsible for committing new blocks on the chain. The amount and selection of Peer servers is done by Peerity Inc. If you are interested in becoming a Peer server, get in contact with us at info@peerity.io

Access to our closed alpha and beta phase is reserved for Peer server operators and participants of the private and public crowdfunding rounds. Invitations will be sent on a first-come, first-serve basis.



THE PEERITY TOKEN

Peerity uses a native crypto token to reward pro-active members of communities for their participation in their communities.

The Peerity token uses variable creation rate based on activity level of the platform. This means less tokens are being minted into the system when there is low activity taking place. We do this to to make sure that if there is little activity on the site one user or one small group of users doesn't get over-rewarded in a way that is unfair to the rest of the userbase. This is especially true during our closed alpha and beta stages, when we will minimize the token supply rate as much as possible.

The Peerity token can be used for crowdfunding of projects and the purchase of e-commerce items on the Peerity platform, giving it an inherent usability.



The Peerity token supply will be created through two processes.

1. An  initial pre-allocation of 100 million coins in the initial block of the blockchain which will be used for the crowdfunding campaign of the Peerity  platform.
2. An  ongoing creation of tokens through our Distributed Proof of Stake system  based on the Peerity platform’s activity level. The more activity there is  on the network, the more tokens will be created.




The initial Peerity token allocation is 100 million coins, generated in the genesis block. These 100 million are distributed accordingly:




The Peerity Team




The team of 5 founders behind Peerity.io have an extensive combined background in blockchain development, datacenter networking, finance, and project and community management. We have experience building websites handling millions of daily visitors and operating datacenters serving millions of customers for global multi-nationals. Our team is growing rapidly and we are always on the lookout for highly skilled professionals to strengthen our project. If you have any interest in collaborating in any way to the Peerity project, please reach out to us at info@peerity.io.







The Peerity Crowdfund


The current scene for fundraisers in the crypto world is under heavy scrutiny from both professionals and pundits alike. One of the main grievances with token crowdsales is that tokens are only created for the sole purpose of being able to launch an initial crowdsale of the tokens.
Peerity wants to break with this trend. Our token will be heavily integrated into our platform, providing a real-world use for the token from the day we launch the Peerity platform.
Another common consequence of the traditional coin offering model is that it is not a sustainable model. Companies and organizations gather a substantial amount of funding from a single investment round and have limited potential to find follow-up funding. Peerity will be having a two phase crowdfund. A small release in october of 20m tokens, and then a second round TBD for 60m tokens. There will be no follow on rounds after these. Once the platform has been constructed, the Peerity development team will be funded by the continued payout of a maximum of 5% of the total daily created Peer tokens. This eliminates the need for additional funding rounds and ensures the indefinite continuation of the Peerity platform.

The Peerity public crowdfunding round will be based on an Ethereum ERC20 token, which will be redeemable for our native Peer tokens after the Peerity beta platform launches.

Round 1 Tokensale start date: October 15, 2017

Round 1 Tokensale end date: November 15, 2017

Total supply during public crowdfund is 80 million PEER tokens. Tokens that have not been sold at the end of the crowdfund will be distributed among the participants in the PEER crowdfund, effectively lowering the price per token.
We will be accepting Ether during the public crowdfund and Bitcoin during private rounds.

    Have been talking a while with some of the founders and developers after a friend of mine told me about them and I'm really psyched about it! Already have some ideas that I could be working out with this platform... Can't wait to help in alpha and beta builds!
    Will follow this one closely and all of the best luck to the developers!

    Haha, I think the name is great and apt, especially since it's got 'Peer' in it which gives a sense of community.

    And I especially love the logo, would definitely like to know the story behind it's concept.
