Content You Can Trust

The objective of Mavin is to enable all publishing and social media platforms to integrate Mavin’s reputation API and together bring trust to the web. This would offer publishers a lot of commercial and immaterial value, including increased expert and user engagement, real-time insights into how their articles (and those from the competition) are perceived as well as an additional seamless sales channel. To support the Mavin Foundation, publishers pay a marginal fee per call above a certain number of API calls.

Manual and AI Ratings

All ratings influence the Mavin Trust Score of an article, including your scores.

Engage in the Discussion

Provide valuable comments to engage in a discussion and be rewarded as an expert.

Earn MVN Tokens

Earn reward for rating and creating content based on your Mavin Reputation Score.

When users rate content, Mavin will take into account the background of the user to adjust the weight of a rating (i.e. expert opinions will be valued more) and reward users with MVN tokens for their efforts. This tokenised approach is also used when Mavin users publish content on the associated platforms (no content is published on Mavin): based on their reputation and the quality of the content, they earn a reward, which can be shared with the publishing platform if wanted. Mavin just launched the first tool on the content platform Datafloq.com, which you can explore here.

Personalised and adjustable feed

Your Mavin feed include content rated and written by those you follow. You can filter your feed and search content based on the Mavin Trust Score, the Mavin Reputation Score of authors or receive recommendations by Mavin. A novelty for the web.

Incognito but Accountable

Mavin enables users to publish content incognito while being held accountable. This means that users can publish content (whether articles or comments) using an avatar while being held accountable. The combination of anonymity and accountability improves freedom of speech and will increase reader engagement and experience. It also allows journalists to safely publish content that we can trust without having to fear for their lives in some countries. Since users need to be KYC-ed, it would stop bots and trolls from influencing the online discourse on associated platforms.
