About Sapien

Sapien is a highly customizable, democratized social news platform capable of rewarding millions of content creators and curators without any centralized intermediaries.

Core Values

  1. Democracy – Users should have the final say over their communities and should be incentivized to contribute.
  2. Privacy – Targeted advertising is profitable but inherently flawed because it exploits user data and infringes on user privacy.
  3. Free Speech – A fundamental principle that should be protected online with disruptive tools.
  4. Customizability – Each user should be able to tailor a social experience to their liking.

Why the Sapien Network?

Current social media sites sell user data, have no effective way to identify fake news, and are unable to reward users who create value.

Sapien will incentivize creators to produce high-quality content by rewarding users with SPN. Users can manage their token portfolio in the Sapien digitalwallet, which can store any Ethereum ERC20 standard token. SPN can be used in our decentralized marketplace to buy physical and virtual goods, content, and services enabled by our global reputation system.

A user’s contributions within Sapien are evaluated by other users, accumulating a reputation score that reflects their expertise in a domain. The Sapien Network will allow a community to distinguish valuable content, limiting the influence of trolls and the spread of fake news.

SPN will power the world’s first Democratized Autonomous Platform, giving users a real voice in shaping the product roadmap and organization through an innovative proposal system.

A multitude of theories behind human intelligence suggest how fundamental social networks have been to the evolution of our species, Homo Sapiens. Whereas thousands of years ago the primary objective of interaction was survival, we now interact for numerous reasons, ranging from business to pleasure. Companies like Reddit and Facebook have enabled us to continue this ancient practice of socializing, while simultaneously driving open-source innovations like React.js and GraphQL. Another example of the earliest social activity is payments. Bitcoin is the first successful implementation of a borderless, cryptographical store of value enabling us to discreetly send funds to another person. Yet it was Satoshi Nakamoto’s brilliant idea behind the coin, the Blockchain, that has opened the floodgates of innovation. Immutable, hashed data is stored in blocks that are chained together to create a distributed database, secured with cryptography. This new technology has begun to disrupt everything from healthcare to banking to consumer apps. It is quite likely that we are witnessing the early stages of Web 3.0. Our team believes it is now feasible to combine the innate human desire for social networks with the immense power of the Blockchain to give each individual unprecedented control over their online social experience. We intend to build a democratized social platform that truly serves its users, fueled by a flexible cryptocurrency, SPN, built on the Ethereum Blockchain.
