Website: https://www.narrative.network/

White Paper: https://assets.narrative.network/documents/narrative-network.pdf

Spanish Translation Announcement: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2536767.msg25872937#msg25872937

Russian Translation Announcement: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2729718.msg27941785#msg27941785

Token: NRVE (an NEP-5 NEO token)

Public Sale has concluded, followed by release of "Chaucer" early alpha: https://alpha.narrative.network/

Join us in our Telegram group: https://t.me/joinchat/EcnpYUMA_kqKDI_Of4ft9g

Individuals who contributed 60 or more NEO received "Founder" status, which means early access to buy niches on the platform, a lifetime 10% bonus on activity points earned in the network, and access to an exclusive forum with team.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We’re building a content economy, where creators, moderators, and everyone who positively influences the quality of content on the network gets rewarded. 85% of all revenue will be distributed to users. The network is governed by the users themselves; moderators and a Supreme Court-like Tribunal are elected by members.  User reputation and content ratings reduce the impact of “bad eggs”.  Best of all, even though cryptocurrency is utilized to represent the value instilled in the network, regular users will not be required to understand or use crypto, since payments can be made in fiat currency.

WHAT IS NARRATIVE?
Narrative will be the world’s journal, providing a scalable, smart subject-oriented network where the middleman is removed and network members have autonomy in a transparent environment.  Existing social networks subjugate their users with ambiguous content policies, providing little to no economic reward for the content they produce.  Narrative flips the script by rewarding all of the users who positively contribute to the network.

HOW DO YOU USE BLOCKCHAIN?
While Narrative utilizes blockchain technology to create a trustless environment for its transactions, it does not rely solely on blockchain for its operation. The fact is that blockchain is a poor choice for content management currently.  Narrative will compete with existing social networks in terms of speed, scalability, searchability, and performance and for that reason it will utilize proven content management technologies to ensure a competitive advantage.  The goal is not to be the best crypto content economy, it is to the the very best social network.  

The overall design goal is to observe the fundamental principles of blockchain, like transparency and decentralization, while still offering a user experience that is second to none.

RADICAL PRIVACY AND CONTROL FOR THE USER
Narrative will also protect user’s ability to control their content and profile information.  For that reason, content will always be editable by creators (and can be deleted by creators, as well).  This conflicts with the immutable nature of traditional blockchain, and thus content itself will not be stored in a blockchain.  In addition, while advertising will be supported, users will control whether their profile information is shared with advertisers and can be rewarded on a recurring basis if they decide to share that information.

ISN'T THIS JUST STEEMIT?
Some will compare Narrative to Steemit, but it is a simplistic comparison. Narrative offers a much more complete and robust content economy, with rewards that disseminate to a broader pool of participants in the network and that are influenced by reputation and ratings.  It is based on years of experience from a leadership team that has been in the online community business for nearly two decades.  Steemit has a very complex, some would say confusing, multi-token system that ultimately requires crypto experience to properly use. Narrative on the other hand allows regular, non crypto-experienced users, to participate and earn rewards without ever having to understand cryptocurrency.  

Unlike Steemit, Narrative will also have tangible revenue sources.  Those sources will include advertising and channel ownership fees.  There are two types of channels- niches, which are subjects that any network member can post to, and brands, which are more tightly controlled areas, where an organization can determine who posts and who moderates its content.    

Narrative will also be a huge draw for community managers, as its Moderator system provides tangible rewards for moderators, and moderation is required for all niches.

Ultimately, Narrative will disrupt the social media and publication business models, by eliminating the middleman, providing autonomy and rewards for its active participants, and providing an outstanding experience for everyone.

THE SEASONED TEAM
Finally, the team behind this project has unprecedented experience in this space.  Most are from Social Strata, a leader in online community technology, with nearly two decades of experience as platform developers serving hundreds of thousands of sites.  Customers on its current platform, Hoop.la, include Bose, Pepsi, Dun & Bradstreet, and Monster.  To jumpstart development of Narrative, much of the technology developed for Hoop.la will be licensed, which will allow the team to roll out the network within 9 months of the end of the Token Sale.

Understood...I know that lots of ICOs are offering bounties as part of their marketing strategy. We're trying to do it a different way, and get authentic word of mouth by exciting people with our platform and concept, rather than paid endorsements. Nothing against bounties...we just want to follow a different path.

As they say - more social networks are good and different. To be honest, a very large description and among this description did not understand the meaning of the project. Well, social network. What kind of narrative is that? I saw no specifics.

I think it's better to invest in projects with a limited number of coins. If many coins are issued, then they are practically depreciated. There are a lot of them, they are not interested in speculators. In any scenario, as soon as the coins reach the market, in 80 percent of cases, they all practically fall to the bottom and then, perhaps in a few months, growth begins.

There are still few moments before the pre ICO and the ICO started, It should be enough time to prepare to join the bounties if there is any.

Could you give us some information about the soft cap and the hard cap for this project?
With it we could get easier way to learn more about the project.

Re: caps---

We are selling a maximum of 65 million tokens and the token sale price is $0.62, so maximum would be $40.3 million. However, because we are selling a certain amount in Early Bird and Pre-Sale before then (and the price is lower in those phases), the most likely raise is between $33-37million.  

For Early Bird, we are limiting total contribution to 6500 ETH. Pre-Sale will close once we raised a total of 60,000 ETH (across both phases).  If both of those phases sell out, then the total raise will be lower because of the lower token prices in the earlier phases.   Hence, we expect a total sell out to raise between $33 - 37 million.  

The other variable that prevents us from giving a more specific total is that the ETH/USD exchange rate that will determine the number of tokens issued per ETH will not be locked in until 24 hours before the token sale day. This is similar to the way Blackmooncrypto handled their token sale.

Hope that helps!

We've just published a blog post about Niches, which are a major part of the Narrative concept: https://blog.narrative.network/niches-a-new-paradigm-for-social-media-2058351b843d

Note that niches are unique subjects (created by network members) within the network and each niche has an owner, who earns revenue based on the popularity of his niche(s). 

We'll also be talking about Founder status with Narrative soon... Founders will have a 48-hour jumpstart on creating new niches when the network launches, which will be a significant advantage in the land grab for popular subjects.  Founder status will be given to anyone who contributes 10 ETH or more in the Token Sale.  More on Founder status later.

Hi sashadoc-

We compare Narrative to Steemit in our white paper: https://assets.narrative.network/documents/narrative-network.pdf

So definitely, check that out, but let walk through some of the differences:

1.  Steemit does not have a complete content economy and its model is relatively simple.

With Narrative, we have a deep model for tracking and rewarding participation on the network.  That model also factors in user reputation and content ratings.  For example, an up-vote or down-vote in Narrative has more impact if the person has more credibility/higher rank in the community.  And we track more types of participation, qualifying more users for rewards.

2.  Multiple Tokens vs. One Token

Steemit has a fairly confusing token model, featuring multiple tokens, each with a different role/purpose. Narrative has one token.

3.  Content Search

Search in Steemit is primitive. It has to be because current blockchain technology is not built for the kind of indexing associated with content.  Narrative takes a different approach with the content, not storing the content itself on a blockchain, allowing for enterprise-class scalability and search.. .and allowing us to compete with the dominant social networks.

4.  Moderation

In both systems, users have autonomy, but in Narrative we add a moderation layer, whereby the community elects moderators (who are also compensated via the rewards system) to ensure a good experience for everyone.  Even better, all moderator actions are transparent, so they are also accountable for their actions.

5. Niches

Narrative is introducing a whole new type of content channel type called niches. For more on that, see: https://blog.narrative.network/niches-a-new-paradigm-for-social-media-2058351b843d  Niches are unique subjects and each niche has an owner, incentivizing upkeep of each such area (and providing rewards for the owners, as well).

6. Not Just For Cryptos

If you want rewards in Steemit, you ultimately need to have crypto.  Our goal with Narrative is to get WIDE adoption so we can compete with the established leaders (Facebook, Medium, Wordpress, etc.). For that reason, we will support letting users cash out their rewards in fiat currency (and even allowing advertisers to pay in fiat).  There are incentives to use crypto (you pay a premium to use fiat), but we want to reduce the barriers to entry for everyone.

There is more detail in the white paper, and I think if you read it you'll see that Narrative is a radical improvement over SteemIt. That's not to knock SteemIt, either. SteemIt has proven that user-autonomous, crypto-based social media platforms can work.

I hope this helps!

Chris Pirillo aka the Locker Gnome (Geek. Dad. Toys. Star Wars (@StarWarsRadar) #StarWars. Collector. Reviewer. Advisor. Tester. Video. LEGO. Retro. Tech. Writer. Seattle. Entreprenerd. Kidult.)

 nails it with what makes the Narrative proposition something different.


https://blog.narrative.network/my-own-chapter-in-the-narrative-65cec30290ef

Quote
My career has flourished around the concept that Narrative is building. It’s already a part of my own digital DNA, so I was quite thrilled to be able to help fuel its success and the vicarious success of all involved as an advisor — from the executive team all the way to the individual user who shares something of amazing value on the network.

Narrative is beyond disruptive. It’s how “social media” should’ve been all along.

So we're putting our efforts into building a content economy where the users who do the work of making things great reap the rewards.  The current system monetizes your attention through whatever works (clickbait, outrage, echo chambers..) and sends the paycheck to the  marketers.  With an economy built on the NRV token we can send 85% of revenue to creators, curators,  and the owners that make a content niche compelling. 

Thanks Chris. You get it!
