The advent of messaging and social media platforms has had a tremendous effect on human communication and interaction globally. Quite a number of social media platforms exist in the world today with people from different spheres of life fully active on these platforms. Arguably speaking, social media platforms have been more advantageous to us as humans as they have made communication easier and more effective. However, most of these platforms make a lot of money at the expense of the platform users; they monetize personal data and share the profits without compensating the original owners of the data; the platform users. This is possible because most of these platforms are centralized; they are controlled from a particular operational centre. Imagine however, a platform that is completely decentralized with no central body, making data alteration almost impossible, a platform that rewards its users for participating on the platform, doing what they love to do, keeping in touch with family, friends, co-workers, business partners and encourages creative content… introducing Howdoo.
Howdoo is a social media platform created by Howdoo ECO Company that helps you stay in touch with family, friends, associates, celebrities and the likes and still gives you the opportunity to be rewarded for participating on the platform. The platform rewards creative contents and active participation financially, it also gives advertisers, marketers and business owners an opportunity to show case their products and services to their target audience and beyond. The Howdoo platform is based on transparency, integrity and equality; this is made possible with the help of blockchain technology.
Howdoo platform was created to bring a meaningful difference to the world. Beyond being a social communication and interaction platform, Howdoo intends to revolutionize the social media by introducing the blockchain feature of decentralization in content consumption and sharing. By so doing, every participant controls how his /her contents and personal data are utilized and used for revenue generation unlike other conventional platforms where the platform owners and few influential people use personal data of users and content generated by the platform users for personal financial gain. On Howdoo, the profits generated are evenly distributed to the participants of the platform based on their choice.
Howdoo, using blockchain technology will create a decentralized network giving the platform users total control over how their contents are used and how they can be monetized. This automatically puts power back in the hands of the platform users since there is no central control. Users can earn a share of the advertising revenues generated from their contributions. On the platform, users earning capacity would majorly be based on participation; the more productive they are on the platform, the greater their earning power. Also users would be empowered with access to an ever- increasing market place for digital assets and services to enable them trade goods and do money transfers. Users who intend to start up businesses on a small scale would be able to build relationships there by growing their customer-base and even meeting other business owners with more experience whom they could learn from.
Howdoo would be a platform where users have control over their personal data and are fairly compensated based on their participation which includes any action or contribution made on the platform. The platform intends to enable users regardless of their location or device to freely and easily transfer money to friends or family members, create e- shops or purchase products and services online. Thanks to the application of blockchain technology, issues of restrictions on money transfer would be a thing of the past. With Howdoo, a feasible, self- sustaining eco-system where people are committed to supporting each other and are rewarded for their participation and contribution will be created. The Howdoo ECO Company is responsible for supporting the Howdoo ecosystem and ensuring the platform’s development is aligned to the objectives of the project.
Here is a brief summary of the flaws that exist currently on other online platforms but properly addressed on Howdoo:
· Content creators are poorly compensated or not compensated at all: social media platforms are
made relevant by content creators yet there’s little or no compensation for their efforts.
· Platform users are not able to regulate the amount of advertising they receive.
· Users usually do not have control over what happens to their personal data.
· The rate at which anti-social behavior is displayed on the internet is on the increase and lots of these other platforms accommodate it.
· Advertisers and sellers are disconnected from online customers.
· Advertisers do not have full control over campaigns.
µDoo: THE HOWDOO CRYPTOTOKEN
µDoo IS The crypto token used on the Howdoo platform as a vehicle for transferring value between advertisers, users and operators. µDoo would be used on the platform in several ways:
– Would be used to reflect the participation of users
– Would be the currency used for advertising on the platform. Advertisers would require µDoo to run their advert campaigns and to bid for access to specific audiences and communities.
– Content creators and users generally would be rewarded for their participation on the platform with µDoo.
– µDoo would provide a form of value exchange to promote business transactions in the e-shops that would be open on the platform.
A personal wallet would be provided for Howdoo users to deposit µDoo.
