CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Oct. 23, 2020 / AlexaBlockchain/ – Blockabase, the world´s 1st tokenized, incentivized, distributed and social engagement search engine, has been shortlisted for the next round of the UNICEF innovation fund.
UNICEF innovation fund is a supportive initiative to frontier startup technology projects, aiming to benefit younger generations and helping uplift humans out of poverty, in emerging market economies around the world.
Iara Izidoro, Research & Development Manager at Blockchain Company & Blockabase, said, “Our world is plagued by so many challenges all happening in parallel at the same time, from climate change to poverty, covid-19 and controversial issues with Surveillance Capitalism, an unintended consequence, manifested by the so called FAANGs (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix & Google). These great companies have helped shape advanced technologies we live with, however, it has most certainly not been a panacea for billions of humans and consumers around the world left out.”
Philippe Engels, Head of Partnerships at Blockchain Company, said, “Blockabase tokenized search engine aims to include consumers in growth development of the utility platform as stakeholders. We have built an easy-to-use search engine, that rewards any user for submitting every URL, or sub-urls they care about with tokens called BASE by proxy. The search utility also rewards registered users for social engagements within every search result, such as likes, up voting, reputation comments and sharing of urls they discover. This is a far more egalitarian utility than “SEO“related search engines, where businesses have to spend fortunes just to rank their sites on the first page.”
