Korean Blockchain Startup HiBlocksBlockchain projects in Korea have taken a hit as more and more scam projects are getting exposed every week. Therefore, the term cryptocurrency and Blockchain are slowly getting a bad reputation in Korea. However, Blockchain technology itself has the potential to truly impact the online content curation space.

The information online can be overwhelming. Brands will need content curators to find the most relevant content.

A Platform for Content Curators HiBlocks Social Media Content Curation Platform

Being a content creator is very difficult. Furthermore, the major social media sites like YouTube, Instagram, and etc already have a core group of content creators that dominate the space. In addition, content creation takes a lot of time and effort, whereas content curator’s time and effort will be focused on finding the right content. Everyone has a passion for something. HiBlocks allows them to showcase their ability to find the best content through their hybrid platform.

Most Blockchain platforms are confusing and difficult to use.  To bring the benefits of Blockchain technology to the masses, the platform itself needs to be easier to use. This is why HiBlocks has created a hybrid platform that has simplified the user experience.  HiBlocks will provide the tools to help interact with the Blockchain without having to understand the technical details. Content creators will just need to focus on curating content. The platform will allow content curators to upload the best content from YouTube. For content creators who wish to join HiBlocks, once they upload their content on YouTube, that same content will be uploaded on HiBlocks.

Implementing a Gaming Experience on HiBlocks

This system will allow users to level up their characters through engagement.  Users will be able to earn points from HiQuest as well. HiQuests are “missions” or “quests” from individual users, organizations, and retail businesses. These quests will not only help promote their brand or services but give another means of gaining rewards for the users.

Since HiBlocks will be a content curations platform there will be many communities in different categories. Therefore, advertisers will be able to target their marketing to key targets.
