Allowing people to decide what is good and what is bad in a collective environment, just like Wikipedia, Uhive created the Magna Carta protocol.
LONDON, UK, UK, October 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Can you imagine the world before cryptocurrency? For anyone who hasn’t lived under a rock in the past five years, this will be a pretty tough question. Cryptocurrency and all of its digital blockchain brethren like NFTs, DApps, and digital wallets, to name a few, have changed the world forever.
The winds of change are blowing, and with the increasingly decentralized future, moderation of online content is ripe for disruption. Why? Well, for some reason 73% of Americans (arguably the moral compass of the world) according to a Pew Research Center survey, believe social media companies intentionally censor content. A statistic too hard to ignore, with at least one of the Big Four – Twitter – promising to provide a decentralized moderation standard (at the time of writing, Twitter has yet to provide).
But Uhive, a British social media startup based in London, which has vowed to give back control to its user base, this week launched its decentralized moderation platform called the Magna Carta Protocol. Taking its name from the charter written in 1215, which paved the way for future nations to shift the balance of power from government to the governed. The influence of the Magna Carta is also visible in other documents around the world, including the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The main provisions of the Magna Carta still resonate today in the free societies of the physical world. The principle that all individuals are created equal and have the same right to be heard and judged by their peers only. Inspired by this, Uhive’s Decentralized Moderation Protocol (DeMo) was built, because as the world increasingly embraces the “metaverse,” our digital rights will need to be comparable to those in the physical world.
Taking inspiration from Wikipedia, but also introducing its own proprietary design for community moderation, Uhive gives everyone the opportunity to become a moderator on Uhive and decide the volume level of content that appears on the platform. At the same time, users have the space and the freedom to express themselves. With DeMo, users can explore their favorite content and meet like-minded people who share their beliefs and interests without fear of being silenced.
By allowing anyone to post content freely on Uhive but governed by decentralized moderation, the ability to chat with, ignore or completely avoid other users exists. Those with opposing views have a safe space to debate their different views, and marginalized groups have a voice on Uhive, instead of being banned, therefore forcing groups to go underground and where hatred and intolerance can often escalate and grow.
