When we agree to terms and conditions, most of the time, our data gets sold and commodified without permission or compensation. QSTN acts as an “interface” where consumers can paygate their information to businesses in return for credits.
By compensating “qsties” for data, we provide incentives for them to provide rich and meaningful insights. This information is then sold to strategic sponsors who use this to better market products and services.
These “qst” segments are turned into actionable insights through partnerships or in-platform moderation for deeper analysis.
The answer is no. Our roadmap and the entire project is a “community-driven” social game to get users paid for their information.
To create a marketplace for data monetization (through the ANSR credit) while offering the flexibility of a two-sided marketplace.
When “qsties” contribute data to our marketplace, we keep this information offline in a cold storage, meaning it is inaccessible; only keeping users’ name, balance and email address in our hot storage at the moment.
Past connecting users with passive income as credits, brand incentives and a two sided marketplace – we wish to gamify data aggregation with leaderboards, badges for active users, forum chat rooms and even trivia competitions in the near future.
While the initial string of sponsors will be chosen by us, the goal is to open voting through credit ownership. These rights, supported by passive income, is the first digital attempt to break away from the corporate silo which has us sign away rights to our data.
