Futourist: Travel, write reviews, get paid by hiphoplife(m) : 4:54 pm On Feb 04

What is Futourist?
Futourist is the first block-chain based review platform that rewards you for your content. You create reviews, share and get paid.

Reviews are one of the most trustworthy and helpful information, found on the internet. They shape how we see things on daily basis, and most importantly – they are directly correlated with business revenue. So if you help others, if you recommend them to certain service, we believe you should get rewarded!.
“The revenue of the content industry is expected to be worth more than US $313 billion by the year 2019!”
Travel, write reviews, get paid

Blockchain review platform that pays you for creating reviews

At the moment the majority of users do not receive any kind of payment for creating content on the most popular review websites. Those reviews are converted into revenue, while users are not paid. We are here to change that! We will give you the power and the value of your content!

Content on social media became the stepping stone to massive financial gain for the platform rather than the creator.
Futourist is a travel review platform, focusing on video reviews and catering the influencers. On Futourist, you will be able to review anything travel related, anywhere, at any time. From restaurants to accomodation, parks, things to do, transport etc.

Futourist for a consumer – Search, watch, visit

Core feature
The Futourist platform will reward reviewers for participation in time-limited reviewing contests. Having limited time period contests allows us to distribute tokens in a straight-forward way – after the end of the contest, to all content creators which participated, with a predefined token distribution curve. After the contest ends, all applicable reviews will be sorted by their upvotes and downvotes. Then we’re going to use the Pareto principle on these reviews in order to distribute rewards as fairly as possible.

Token crowdsale
250,000,000 FTR tokens
Futourist will offer 25% of tokens in the FTR token crowdsale, starting February 15th 2018. The funds raised will be spent on future platform development, business operations, marketing and PR, legal, team and other expenses. Goal here is to get funds to develop and maintain the platform.

Who should participate

You want to spread awareness about your brand or service.

Starting with 1 million users
Unlike many other blockchain startups, we have a solid starting point with an existing and working platform with more than 1 million monthly users called OpenHours.

Why Futourist is launch

Because there are only a handful of people who have managed to turn their content into profit, while the majority of content creators are left out without anything. Platforms associated with content do not pay their users for creating, sharing and curating content. And a large part of that content are reviews

Our Aim
Our solution is aimed to build the first platform in the world that rewards users for creating, sharing and curating reviews. That way somebody who has a regular job and creates content as a hobby now has a chance to earn money on the side. That comes instantly without struggling years and years to come to a certain point of creating some stream of revenue for themselves.

How big is the potential market
Revenue of content industry was worth more than $ 190 billion in the year 2016 and is expected to be worth more than $ 313 billion by the year 2019
From early researchers it is estimated that almost $ 31 billion a year of UK consumer spending is potentially influenced by online reviews
The market cap of travel review industry in 2015 was worth more than $ 1 billion in North America alone
UN World Tourism Organization is projecting 1.8 billion tourists by 2030.

What do we have available until now
Unlike many other blockchain startups, we already have an existing and working platform – OpenHours – available to us with more than 1 million monthly users.

When will the Futourist platform officially launch ?
Futourist platform will officially launch after the second half of 2018.

How does Futurist solve the problem of bogus reviews?
They solve it by creating a level playing field. Everyone who participates in content creation and curation gets compensated and that’s something they are upfront with. But — and this is a big but — the amount they earn depends greatly on the quality of their content. Gaming the system is possible (and they admit to that in the Futurist whitepaper), but it’s also difficult. A reviewer is much more likely to get better compensation if they step up their game and improve their reviews then if they engage in convoluted and complex ways to screw the system.
