People have started to look for new, unfiltered and reliable sources of information. One such source has recently stepped up: Everipedia. The Internet, being littered with mass propaganda and disinformation, still offers us a choice. We still have the choice of where we get our information from. Mega corporations like Google, will quietly make sure we always choose the “right” information, but many people have started to see behind the veil of censorship and propaganda.
We are supposedly living in the age of information. When you look closer however, we’re actually living in the age of mass disinformation. Politicians are getting Nobel Peace prizes for starting wars. Banks pose as respectful institutions while they rob people of their futures with debt and interest rates.
Disinformation and propaganda have become so common in our daily lives, that most people can’t really tell the truth anymore. Mass censorship and armies of sock puppet trolls are instantly send out after anyone who goes against the system and tries to spread real information.
The evolution of free information
Everipedia was started in 2015 by Sam Kazemian and Kedar Iyer, the Director of Software for Everipedia. The concept was simply “everything on an encyclopedia” and thus it was called Everipedia. It’s an evolution of Wikipedia so it’s goals were to make everything better.
To increase the scope, to improve the design, the visibility and the community. Back in 2015 the blockchain infrastructure wasn’t really well laid out and the focus was on the design and community growth. Interestingly enough, if you start searching for Everipedia on Google, you’ll most likely start getting results from Wikipedia.
For a company like Google, who parade themselves as defenders of freedom, equality and democracy, they are beginning to look like something out of Orwell’s “1984”. Wikipedia is in a way regarded by Google as the “Gold standard.
The article base will be decentralized and it’s going to be put on IPFS. There will also be a token system, so that when you create articles you receive tokens in return. By doing so you will vote on who will create what articles so that there won’t be any admins or governments involved.
Everipedia will be hosted on EOS.The genius design of EOS is covered on here. Everipedia has about 6 million pages and the growth is very fast.
When the move to the EOS blockchain completes, everything will start growing much faster. The page currently has about 5 million views per month. From another perspective the page is great for posting content, which should be transparent, but most people will have difficulty or restrictions posting.
Wikileaks suffer difficulties with their servers, but with Everipedia, you can post information, which you think should be public and it can’t be taken down. The decentralization of information makes sure of that.
This is a great slap in the face of all mass media and government institutions. No amount of restrictions should ever stop people from seeking the truth. Freedom and Truth should be the the things we value most as people and ironically enough, these are the things banks and governments are most against. As an unknown man once said:
“Truth fears no questions.”
