Peace through technology

Ananas is building a Living Text Initiative, an online encyclopedia that allows every community to map and make accessible their own beliefs to counter today's age of misinformation.

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

Flexible collaboration

Collate different pieces, create richer structure by annotations & contribute your own work and insight in different ways

Free knowledge

Safeguarding our knowledge is everyone’s responsibility, this will be free to access for everyone. No ads. No barriers.

Token ecosystem

Our unique ecosystem protects against bad influences, and aligns goals through an incentive system

Earn rewards

You need anacoins to participate in the governing and collaboration, but good work will earn you more than you start with

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.   


Our team


Ananas is run by an inter-faith team from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds. We all share a common aim to fight hate by building and supporting communities.
