A Decentralized Protocol for Publishing
and Valuing Online Content

Whitepaper

Online Content is Broken

UNFAIR

Platforms don’t
distribute value fairly
to users and creators

POOR DISCOVERY

Content discovery
algorithms are harmed by spammers and paid bots.

CENTRALIZED
GOVERNANCE

Users don’t have a voice in content moderation or in platform policy decisions.

U Network

provides a solution to the fairness , content discovery, and governance problems.

Online Content Platforms
Content Rewards Layer
Content Pricing Layer
Moderation&Governance Layer
UNP (UBFT consensus protocol )
  • CONTENT REWARDS LAYER:

    An on-chain protocol for managing
    token rewards to authors, explorers,
    and moderators. Also enables users
    to spend tokens on the network.

  • CONTENT PRICING LAYER:

    An on-chain prediction market
    protocol for pricing upvotes and
    downvotes.

  • MODERATION & GOVERNANCE LAYER:

    A governance protocol that
    enables users to participate in
    content moderation and
    governance decisions.

U Community

is the first online content community built on top of U Network.

GET PAID

Authors and explorers get paid directly for their content creation and curation.

PREDICT AND PROFIT

Upvoters and downvoters can profit from correctly predicting popular content.

LESS SPAM, MORE QUALITY

Voting has a cost. In this way, we eliminate spam voting and improve quality content discovery.

DIRECT VOICE

Users can become moderators in a fair and transparent way, gaining content decision and budget rights.

Upvoting

1 Content Explorers predict high quality content by upvoting with UUU Tokens.

2 The platform rewards the Author with UUU Tokens, based on the total number of upvotes. The platform will also give daily UUU Token Bonuses to authors with the top 10% content.

3 The platform rewards Explorers with UUU Tokens based on how early the Explorer votes, and how popular the content becomes.
