ABOUT US
APPICS AG: Fast Facts

APPICS is a blockchain-based social media app with an integrated NFT marketplace, that allows anyone from anywhere in the world to get rewarded with crypto for sharing, commenting and voting on content. APPICS combines social media with the benefits of blockchain, including an NFT marketplace

OUR MISSION
APPICS Gives Users Control

APPICS solves social media’s issues by implementing a decentralized and transparent reward system and NFT marketplace that gives users control over their content, earnings, and data.

REWARD SYSTEM
How APPICS Works

The APPICS company has a reward pool with its own reward token (APX), and platform users decide how tokens get distributed. Every time a user upvotes a piece of content on the platform, the blockchain registers the vote and checks the user’s wallet balance and the amount of power the user upvoted with. The more APX a user holds, the higher their voting power and subsequently their influence over the distribution of APX from the reward pool.

Users can vote on content within 30 days. After this time, the amount of earnings from each post automatically goes directly to their wallets (65% to the content creator, 25% voters, 10% APPICS). This way, the platform is based on a fair and self-regulating reward mechanism. The earned rewards can be exchanged for any other currency.

Users can also choose whether or not they want to share their personal data with advertisers in return for APX voting power. This way, users don’t experience intrusive algorithms and ads, restoring the relationship between brands and consumers.

Additionally, APPICS includes an integrated NFT marketplace to further help artists and creatives turn their content, like art, music and dance moves, into income. We merge the brilliance of an NFT marketplace with social media to enable artists to turn their NFTs into content, display their art galleries directly inside their social profiles, and allow their audience to engage with the pieces.
