Creating Real Life Experiences

Kuende is a concept of creating a social network by using gamified challenges and blockchain technology. Their aim is to create a network that encourages dynamic, evolving and socially engaged communities that gather in the real world to share their specific interests in rewarding and fun ways. Kuende's mission is to become the first hybrid online-offline social media platform that creates as much human interaction in real life as it does digitally. Gamified challenges will actively encourage people in all stages of their Kuende experience to engage in activities that lead to real-life interactions and relationships. Most challenges will involve a physical location and an action or actions to be taken at that location. Every challenge is created in such a way that users receive entertainment from the experience, hence it is termed as “Gamified”.

Reviews

Kuende is a very interesting and unique idea/concept in the social networking world. If properly executed and marketed, it can grow into a huge business and success. The concept is acknowledged by many people these days, which can be the reason for the growth. There is a great interest in what this platform offers. It uses the blockchain technology to make gamified challenges in a real life social interaction. This platform has also highlighted one of the most growing social problems of social engagement online and not socializing in real life. This platform has tried to provide a solution for this issue and came up with an innovative idea of initiating more interactions by limiting the isolation of users on the platform from the real world. I really like the motto of this platform “To be real again”. It is really a strong message. In addition to that, I also really like the user-interface and structure of their website, for instance the color-scheme is very appealing for the eye and instantly grabs your attention. The availability of this product/platform is already a huge success on Google-play and has impressive ratings on it too, which is a very good sign for its development in future and it has multiple revenue sources. Kuende has a strong and experienced team with members from different sectors, the team consists of Entrepreneurs, business developers, software developers, web designers and mobile developers.
