It’s less than 2 weeks until the launch of the EOS blockchain and today we chat with Mahbod Moghadam, co-founder of Everipedia, a blockchain-based Wikipedia built on the EOS blockchain. Mahbod graduated from Yale in 2004 and was the co-founder of Rap Genius (now, which finds the meaning in song lyrics.

While building Rap Genius, Mahbod decided to create his own Wikipedia page, and was unpleasantly surprised that he wasn’t allowed. Apparently didn’t have a high profile, even after raising millions, to be accepted at

With the idea that anyone should be able to create a wiki page for themselves, he and a few other co-founders decided to launch as an “expansion pack” to Basically, if you weren’t popular or “cool” enough to get a Wikipedia page, you could create your own page on Everipedia.

Before you think that Everipedia is some scrub website, they imported all of the current Wikipedia articles. This means that they have over 6,000,000 unique articles to search from. Before you cry “plagiarism”, please remember that Wikipedia imported the articles of the Encyclopedia Britannica. Ok, everyone cool now?

Anyways, here’s some additional information about

Everipedia background:

over 6 million articles

No ads

Anyone can create an article and be an editor about anything, no censorship

Started with all of the wikipedia articles inside of it?

Hired Larry Sanger, co-founder of Wikipedia AND Everipedia

Raised $30M, fully funded by Block.One, the creators of the software

More fun facts, Everipedia didn’t start off as a blockchain project. They started as a website that offered reward points to incentivize authors and editors. Guess what? This influence model can’t complete with the tokenized world of blockchain. So, Everipedia networked with Block.One and raised $30M, complete bought by Block.One, and decided to be the first airdrop on the EOS platform. Ok, they didn’t drop their tokens first, but they were the first to announce. Why would they do this? Well, they want to build a community of content creators, editors and consumers. Airdropping your tokens on E OS means that you get and instant community of like-minded please. Pretty clever.

So, tune in to find out why their token, the IQ token, exists and how it incentivizes users and why they chose to build on the EOS blockchain. We’re just getting started with EOS and there’s going to be a LOT more dApps that decide to airdop in order to quickly build a community. If Dan Larimer learned one thing about Steem, it was that the initial token distribution is very important, and by incentivizing airdrops to EOS token holders, dApp team can take advantage of the year long ICO.

I hope you enjoy this episode and I’ve included all the links to keep up-to-date with the Everipedia team, Don’t forget to buy EOS tokens and register them ASAP in order to receive the free Everipedia IQ tokens. This isn’t investment advice. I don’t have any license, certification or experience to offer it. What you do with your money is your own business. I don’t care, and good luck.

  • Trevon James has reported that to the reporter that, notwithstanding, the maker had as of late observed a portion of his accounts for their entertainment regard. To the degree YouTube characters go, James is doubtlessly not the most exceedingly terrible, and his 120,000 supporters on that stage show it. Here he is in January, not a long time before the drapery truly began to close on the BitConnect scheme, talking about it. By then he was at the same time defending BCC and its executives, saying that “in case they expected to deceive” they could have as of late left with everything starting at now. Note this is actually what BitConnect did sometime in the future………… News Source: TheCoinRepublic

  • The importance of digital marketing has increased significantly in the last few years. E-commerce and the web are used more than they have ever been before. Online stores and services have proven true that it is on the web and at our fingertips. The main problem which is encountering for cryptocurrency users is choosing a reliable cryptocurrency wallet. What is BitcoinGenX? BitcoinGenX (BGX) is truly a 2-in-1 innovative cryptocurrency aiming to change the way cryptocurrencies are perceived and how they can be beneficial to the future for financial institutions. BitcoinGenX is POS+ zPoS Hybrid cryptocurrency forked wallet and it also includes customized Zerocoin Protocol. BitcoinGenX aims to provide innovation and positive change to the world by promoting both eco-friendly and privacy solutions in the blockchain industry. For the BtcGenX holder, it will be extremely beneficial to hold BGX as the algorithm is Proof-of-stake/Masternode. That means that the only way to mine/mint BGX coins is by holding and staking coins. Once the coin holder has enough coins for a masternode, they will profit from higher rewards. BitcoinGenX cannot be mined by GPU (Graphics Cards) or CPU (Central Processing Unit) as we believe it would be unfair for user’s wealthy in equipment to benefit more than those who don’t have such tools available. The BGX reward, directly flows back into the value of BGX coin holders, in proportion with their current stake. This means coin holders make the money. BitcoinGenX is having a fantastic marketing team which will plan a customized beneficial package to the small and large businesses. It will be designed to have to drop down boxes whereby the users can select their target markets, even targeted media platforms, with easy advertising package solutions to meet their goals. BitcoinGenX Management Team The BitcoinGenX management team is committed to expanding the blockchain platform to be at the forefront of changing the world to a more efficient and safe place using these technologies. We monitor the industry and comply with regulations while being transparent with the community at large. With our products being made, we aim to dominate our niche markets by creating easy to adopt, functional products to ensure the industry’s success. We are creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform, whereby large corporations, small businesses, and individuals alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with our easy marketing process. We will also be creating a website that links together our centralized and decentralized exchanges, with offering a choice between the two, as we feel it should be the users choice. All fees are payable with BitcoinGenX coin for both platforms. BitcoinGenX was interviewed by our team prior to this publication. Here are their responses to questions we posed: Question: How and when did you get the idea? BitcoinGenX: When we saw the need for decentralization in digital marketing to help fuel e-commerce, we knew there was a need for an all in one marketing platform to make it easier for companies/projects or people to spread their word. Question: Why do you think investing in Crypto is profitable? BitcoinGenX: Because it is largely unknown and highly volatile. Soon we will see stability in the market but then mass adoption will make sure the value will continue to go up for the strong projects. Question: What makes it stand out from the other ICO’s? BitcoinGenX: Our digital marketing platforms that are being built on decentralization, our clients can integrate into their business model and leverage the powerful network effect of the blockchain. This allows companies to build their own unique economic ecosystems and incentivized early community contribution and adoption in an unparalleled fashion. Question: What suggestions would you like to share for others who are looking forward to starting a company? BitcoinGenX: Follow your dreams and passions, no one else is going to have the same as you! Question: How can World readers get involved in what you are doing? BitcoinGenX: If you would like to know more about how you can take part in the community, please check our discord forums and let us get to know you and your skill set. We’re open for extending our team with great personalities. Question: What are the next steps in the project? BitcoinGenX: We are working hard on the web wallet development, so it can be released as soon as possible. Also, we are planning to get listed on CoinMarketCap and CONCLUSION BitcoinGenX (BGX) is creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform whereby large corporations, small businesses, and people alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with the easy marketing process. BitcoinGenX has a fast blockchain and the wallet including green protocol and zerocoin protocol is safe and secure.

  • I was wondering if anyone had any experience with p2p lending with bitcoins? I can see there seems to be a bunch of cryptocurrency p2p lending sites. Does anybody have any experience with them? I’ve already mined some bitcoins and was thinking it might be interesting to capture a yield on them. Alternatively, I was thinking if the p2p bitcoin is crap and it’s too risky not to get paid back, to take the other side of the trade: borrow (maybe to buy some more mining equipment) and then default on the loan…
