About Ananas

 

At Ananas, we are building a community and an interactive platform that provides insight into ideologies, the beliefs that make us who we are. We provide easy to use tools that can be used to better understand the related texts.

We are doing this because the information age is threatening to fall into an age of misinformation. Fake news and alternative facts seem more popular than peace and truth. A new era of understanding is required.

Objective Subjectivity

Subjective doesn’t have to mean unreliable. We ensure that knowledge is reliable, authoritative, & up to date

Decentralized and autonomous

We don’t own your data, nor decide everything. Ananas empowers people and communities to do good in their own way.
 
 

Our mission is made possible by blockchain technology

 

The Ananas Vision

 

With the help of a growing community, we can create a valuable resource of knowledge, culture and subjectivity that makes a meaningful difference and builds world peace.

 

How Anacoins Work

 

By creating our own cryptocurrency, the Anacoin, we align the interests of different groups and reward members of the community and trusted contributors to the platform. 

 
 

The Ananas Ecosystem

 

Being built on the Ethereum blockchain, the ecosystem has three parts. 

 

The first is community which allows constructive dialogue and interaction between individuals of disparate groups. The second is the data platform where information will  be collated for verification allowing for Anacoin rewards. And the third are consumer facing apps which allow anyone in the world to access the information for free.
