Inspiration

hashbuzz is aiming to tackle the dilemma of propagating disinformation on social media that lead to individuals build misconceptions about the world around them. We believe everyone in society has a role to play in confirming which information is valid before propagating it across the globe, now it’s possible to incentivise this behaviour for the common good.

What it does

The submitted Proof of Concept (PoC) is a subset of the overall vision whereby hashbuzz offers a way for campaigners to: (1) run a Twitter promotion and (2) reward their immediate community followers (what we call organic influencers who participate in propagating the tweet). This PoC will set the stage for enabling the Verification and Validation (V&V) process of localised information.

How we built it

The founder bootstrapped the initial phase alongside the technical lead who formed an agile team of freelancers to materialise the vision which was drawn out using a collaborative tool (e.g. user interface, user journeys, database structure etc) as an interim proof of concept.

Challenges we ran into

The team faced multiple challenges as we progress with cross-merging between web2 with web3 architectures, the key challenge is to combine the temporary handling of information from Twitter API and the instant distribution of rewards on Hedera Hashgraph.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We have an amazing community on Twitter who have been patiently waiting for the release of the dApp, indeed we are comfortable now to start opening up the dApp for community testing. The team managed to pass the technical hurdles faced during development of the PoC and we look forward to pas the Security Audit with top score before moving to production.

What we learned

A working PoC is proof that we are on the right track in solving the puzzle of supporting informed-individuals for a better world, we learned that the creativity space is huge with the readiness and maturity of the underlying DLT technology and that the community is ready to experiment with us in this new realm.

What's next for hashbuzz.social

Enrich the PoC features for campaigners to do more with their promotions, mint and distribute the $HBZ token, and build the BuzzerDAO (to name just a few toward trust-less info societies)
