Although we have so many online communities at our fingertips, finding the right people who offer the right support at the right time (and right place) can be tough... In fact, in some situations it can be downright impossible.
Not too long ago, I was a tennis player traveling the world and was rarely ever home. I wanted to keep my costs as low as possible while traveling, but finding the least expensive food, lodging, and entertainment, was difficult for me.
Yes, I am on Facebook. Yes, I have email. Most of my social network -- the people who I trust and rely upon -- are in France. When traveling from country to country, I was not acquainted with the right people and the right resources to get the information that I needed.
This struggle led me to an epiphany.
There is no globalized community-driven network where people can turn to in situations like mine. There is no network through which others would be eager to support someone who knows nothing about a new city. Where is the incentive to provide a complete stranger with the resources he or she needs to get by?
It seemed to me that we are hyper connected but out of touch with the needs of the people around us. Therefore, I have developed Livingway, a social platform that brings people together, all over the world, in order to support one another.
Such a platform, once unimaginable, is now possible thanks to cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Because of its decentralized and exchange-based nature, these technologies can push forward a network like Livingway by promoting engagement within and throughout communities while compensating participants for their contributions.
On Livingway, you can find the people, services, businesses and info you need in real time. And our plan is the make you able to pay for what you need with the platform’s own token: the LIV. Think of Livingway as the combination of a social network and social rewards system.
