Our Solution

Trustable Open Impact Factors for content, users and organisations;
with fair rewards for
all stakeholders
thanks to reputation-based advertising

Our Vision

Knowledge should be open,
Anonymity should be possible,
Accountability should be a given.

The Imagjn Ecosystem

We live in a world where fake is the new normal, paywalls stop innovation and online accountability is non-existent. Now, imagine a world where fake news, click farms or bots are no longer a problem, knowledge is open and accessible to anyone and where anonymity is still possible, but accountability a given. Does this sound like a utopia? Probably it does to you, but it does not have to be. We are building a platform that offers trustable Open Impact Factors for content, users and organisations; with fair rewards for all stakeholders thanks to reputation-based advertising.

We take our inspiration from the academic publishing world. Though this world is fundamentally flawed – it is slow, bureaucratic, expensive and requires academics to give away their copyright – it also offers something good: the scientific method. The system of peer reviews ensures high-quality content, accountability and stops fake news.

Changing the academic world is very difficult, we have found out. Though everyone is aware of the need for change, actually changing it is very difficult. Therefore, instead of trying to bring academic publishing into the 21st century, we are bringing the scientific method to the non-academic publishing. Instead of focusing on where someone publishes, we focus on what someone publishes:

 Imagjn will be a platform that simplifies writing, citing, reviewing and publishing content, making knowledge freely available to anyone while preventing fake news/bots and ensuring accountability.

We have created the Open Impact Factor, which provides its owners with the ability to take full control over their online achievements. The Open Impact Factor is determined by, on the one hand, AI and, on the other hand, the crowd. What you publish matters and directly affects your online reputation. It will be completely open source and, in the future, other platforms can also tap into it. The Imagjn Open Impact Factor Protocol (IFP) will be:

An Open Impact Factor not only solves the problem of fake news and lack of accountability, but will also enable a new form of advertising: privacy-compliant, reputation-based advertising, where advertisers no longer pay for ads next to low-quality content but also no longer have to pay for clicks by bots.

The Imagjn ecosystem will consist of the following components:

DECENTRALISED

Imagjn will use the Smilo blockchain to ensure immutability, verifiability and traceability of the Open Impact Factor. The OIF is controled and owned by the user.

OPEN SOURCE

What you publish matters and directly affects your online reputation. The Open Impact Factor will be completely open source and, in the future, other platforms can also tap into it.

COMMUNITY

Users can collaborate effectively, based on someone’s reputation. Journalists can be anonymous, but accountable, privacy is a given and knowledge will be open.
