Pedity – An unbiased Content sharing platform that rewards users
The Blockchain is a rapidly growing technology that is engulfing every possible business domain. Therefore, many reports published have predicted a huge rise in the Blockchain market. According to reports, the Blockchain market is expected to extend to over 20 billion dollars by 2024. It is counted in one of the most promising new technologies that are hoped to change the future of businesses and the internet.
Pedity is basically a community oriented content sharing platform where every user is rewarded with PEDI tokens based on content and not on upvotes/votes from other users. Here are some of the categories;
- Articles — Similar to Steemit but users don’t have to depend on upvotes
- Videos — Similar to a media platform like LBRY which rewards user for video sharing
- Images — Similar to gettyimages but user gets rewarded in PEDI Tokens
- Questions and Answers — For every successful answer user gets rewarded and also the person who has asked question will also be rewarded
Here you get rewarded for every post your create, comment you make, user you refer. That means you are rewarded for almost anything you do on Pedity.
Ofcourse reward rate is dependent on various factors.
You can easily exchange PEDI token on Stellar Term exchange for Stellar Lumens. In simple terms, you are getting rewarded just by sharing content and the best part is that you don’t need upvote or like to get rewards. Once you create posts, rewards are generated instantly. This is all thanks to the Stellar blockchain technology.
You can buy Pedity Tokens on Interstellar, StellarTerm and StellarPort Exchange where Pedity is listed as verified asset.
Our mission is to bring transparency in content industry using blockchain.

- Instant Redemption

Limitations and Problems
Being in development stages, lot of things cannot be answered as well. But some of the limitations we feel are quite typical and we are also thinking of how to tackle them.
First problem being to accept PEDI asset, user has to create a trustline and for that the user needs to have some XLM in their account. We can fund 100-1000 users with our own budget and easily create their accounts with minimum balance while registration. Problemnwill come when Pedity will have more users, We have seen example in other blockchains where they use a faucet to fund their users. Certainly for trustline, a faucet (that transfer money in pennies) or something like that is not viable as it will need to transfer 2XLM per user (~1$) and with time XLM will get much higher value which is a situation
How Pedity Aims to provide Solutions to these Problems
Second problem being once a value is credited to a user(here value is referred as PEDI tokens),
We would like to make sure that users don’t go to exchange and change them right away. That might be a unhealthy ecosystem. For this, I have two plans
- Incentivize users if they have tokens for a particular amount of time
- Add two time slots where in first time slow the rewarded PEDI assets are first allocated and second time slot, where those particular assets are released so that user can trade.
These are few issues we are facing and certainly with time I will be able to solve them as it will give more insight how the platform is growing.
We believe in open source projects and by the time Pedity has matured Beta stage, all code will be released to public so that anyone can contribute to Pedity and learn more about it.
Pedity Reward Generation
Pedity is a PHP based platform and PEDI is the rewards generated using stellar blockchain.
PEDI is the currency which is awarded to users based on the content they are posting. In place of manually deciding the value of how much value a user is getting in PEDI per content, we are going to use few factors from stellar platform that will help us gain the value of PEDI tokens per post, the factors are listed below-
1.Trustline (Most Important )
- The volume of content created
- Volume of PEDI tokens traded in past 24 hour
- Value per XLM
