Description

Everpedia is the world's largest encyclopedia on the blockchain. It's decentralized, democratic, censorship-resistant and offers a financial incentive for those participating in creating and editing content.  It also has a secret weapon. Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger joined the company in 2017, nearly 3 years after it's formation after spending much of his life pursuing a high-quality crowdsourced database of knowledge. Sanger said, "Everipedia is the encyclopedia of everything, where topics are unrestricted, unlike on Wikipedia." Today on the show we discuss the evolution of Everpedia, how building on the Blockchain creates a better encyclopedia and what challenges they will face by allowing financial incentives into the crowdsourced knowledge eco-system.
