Funding Proposal - QSTN: Redefining data, De-Fi and NFTs on Web3


QSTN is a web application where users participate in surveys, quizzes and short questionnaires to earn virtual credit. These credits can be swapped for a combination of incentives ranging from brand items, NFTs, and discount codes.

What problem are we trying to solve?

When we agree to terms and conditions, most of the time, our data gets sold and commodified without permission or compensation. QSTN acts as an “interface” for consumers to paygate their information towards businesses.

Who benefits from this system?

By compensating QSTIEs for data, we provide incentive for rich and meaningful insights. This information is then accessed by our partners for market research.

How will privacy be built into the system?

Our team is currently in talks with two self sovereign identity solutions to allow users to contribute while hiding their connection to the data.

How is NEAR being integrated into the application?

By building on the NEAR blockchain, we are able to create a timestamp each time questions are answered to act as record of input on-chain.

Is QSTN blockchain agnostic?

We are initially building on NEAR Protocol due to their low gas environment but since users earn our virtual credit (not issued on a blockchain) and we can mint NFTs on any network - we can service any chain.

What happens to this information?

We keep this information offline in a cold storage, meaning it is inaccessible; only keeping users’ name, balance and email address in our hot storage at the moment.

How do we know these companies will not abuse our data?

While initial sponsors are chosen by us, the goal is to open voting through credit ownership. These rights, supported by passive income, is the first digital attempt to break away from the corporate silo of data mismanagement.

How has the idea developed since inception?

We started this year incubating in the 1871 x Verizon BLK Tech accelerator and currently participate in the Gitcoin KERNEL Batch 4 program.

What is the immediate future for QSTN?

We have begun iteration on the NEAR blockchain, until this is complete, we will be growing the voice and community on Instagram and Twitter.

Is there anything else we should know?

QSTN is founded by cyborg and collective conscious, Orrin, who has been seen on Dr. Phil and recently partnered with Mintbase for their MUTANT album NFT release.
