Dear ATOMARS Community,
We are pleased to announce the listing of the Everipedia (IQ) on ATOMARS exchange. Everipedia (IQ) deposits are effective starting from November 21, 2019, and the following trading pairs will be available: IQ/BTC and IQ/EOS.
EVERIPEDIA PROJECT SUMMARY
In 2014, Everipedia was forked from Wikipedia, enabling users to create wiki-style pages. In 2017, the company switched to the EOS blockchain, a move which was intended to make content censorship resistant. It launched fully on August 9, 2018 on the EOS blockchain and continues to operate on it. The platform rewards users with tokens designated as IQ for creating quality content.
New blockchain technology has made it possible for the creation of an incentivized, peer-to-peer network for curating, submitting and governing a database of encyclopedia articles. Everipedia makes it possible for businesses or individuals to build their own interface to interact with the network or a subset of the network. This makes it possible for websites and applications to access and collaborate on a synchronized database of human knowledge, which is updated constantly by participants and applications on the network .
FEATURES OF EVERIPEDIA (IQ)
The main function of Everipedia is for reading, creating and editing collaborative articles online. The pages are wiki articles, which means users can collaboratively edit the content and structure of pages. On top of that, Everipedia makes it quite easy to create and edit pages without having any knowledge of coding, unlike most encyclopedias that require you to have some ability to code (e.g wiki markup).
Blockchain and Decentralization
After Larry Singer—Everipedia’s Chief Information Office—joined the company, the team began using distributed ledger technology to create a peer-to-peer backend for the platform, including a governance system based on the IQ token. Everipedia announced on December 6, 2017 that they would move the entire editing and storing process onto the DUO blockchain and IPFS.
Contributors on Everipedia are currently being rewarded with 1Q tokens on the blockchain. These tokens enable contributors to vote on upgrades and additional submissions or modifications to articles.
Notifications & Inbox Messages
Everipedia follows Facebook’s notification system by providing editors updates for activities on pages and forum posts that a user participated in. Everipedia editors can also receive email notifications for pages and users can send and receive private messages using their inbox.
Article Discussion & Voting
Everipedia features an article discussion section on all the pages created on the site which can be found at the bottom of any page. This is used for discussing the page’s overall content, like what is missing, a page update request, or to report misleading or inaccurate information. In addition, it allows for scholars to comment and upvote or downvote specific reference links on a page. The idea is to enable them to upvote sources that are considered accurate and useful by editors and downvote those they consider inaccurate and questionable.
Everipedia organizes their pages in a graph relational manner by using structured metadata. An API that will be released later on will allow users to query Everipedia content using property attributes. This enables users to use the Google Rich Data Testing Tool to see the metadata type within an Everipedia page.
