Layer Protocol

TBA
10,252 Views
The decentralized reputation protocol for the global sharing economy, built on the blockchain.

Even the bigger players in the sharing economy today have no way of knowing a new user's value before their first transaction. Bad actors moving from one service to the next one are a huge expense in the industry, and these costs get passed on to other users through increased fees.

There is currently no way of sharing user reputation data between asset sharing companies. Why would Airbnb even give away their user reputation data to competitors or let's say Uber? While more than 72% of the US population has used at least one sharing economy service, the number for Uber or Airbnb is less than 25%, meaning there is a vast amount of reputation data shared on all sides, and it can drive down operation costs significantly.

Layer Protocol aims to resolve the issue, and will first be adopted by Spin, a stationless e-scooter platform. Live in over 50 markets in the US with over 1M rides in less than a year. Layer Protocol will be Spin's base layer for reputation and rewards. Users will be rewarded when their reputation increases.

Cure Cosplay
Cure WorldCosplay is the world’s largest Cosplay platform, supporting 12 languages where more than 720,000 members from more than 180 countries post their quality works - 6.5 million images and counting. Our official social media accounts are followed by more than 430,000 people across Facebook, Twitter, and Weibo. We have a strong emphasis on providing community service which is characterized by self-sustainability and development. Cosplayers have various motivations for their activity, some Cosplayer want to become professional, others want more fans, and yet others are looking to share their work with groups. Photographers and Props Makers working closely with Cosplayers also have some influence on the increasing diversity of motivations. COT will be used as a payment currency within the Cure WorldCosplay ecosystem, helping cosplayers without access to other online payment methods to be tipped for their services. Using the Cure Protocol, players will also be able to create and distribute their own personalised coin. This unique feature will bring power back to cosplayers, enabling them to monetize themselves as these coins can be used to tip players as well as purchase merchandise or event tickets. Player Coins will provide an accessible platform for cosplayers to promote their identity to the continuously growing 720,000 member-base of Cure WorldCosplay, as they will be directly attainable by fans. These coins will also allow cosplayers to develop deeper relationships with their communities, as users will be able to explicitly show their support while also gamifying their experience.
