A taste of Ananas

 

We are building a digital platform to allow communities to map the resources that contribute to their beliefs to combat hatred and help build constructive dialogue. 

 
 

Ananas supports communities by allowing them to tell their own stories

Our aim is to make contextual digital resources accessible to everyone.

Step 6

Dynamic Content

Result: Comprehensive, authoritative, and up to date knowledge, free for all.

How it works

 

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 ensures 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, but there 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
icon_decen-b.png

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

By creating our own currency, Anacoins, we align the interests of different groups and reward members of the community and trusted contributors to the platform. Anacoin is a token, pre-mined and will have a limited pool. Being built on the Ethereum blockchain, it benefits from all of the same perks and allows the creation of a token ecosystem for this mission.
 

With the help of a growing community, we can create a valuable resource of knowledge, culture and subjectivity that makes a meaningful difference and build world peace. Join us on our mission to promote peace and understanding through the power of technology.

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.
