Technology in our daily life
As digital citizens, we leave
an ever-growing breadcrumb trail
of personal data behind us
every second of every day.
When using any free service online, have you ever asked yourself are you just a user? a customer? or a product? Let us tell the sad truth, you are the product! Every action or click you make is considered as data and this can be sold and easily used to manipulate your life. Pepolls, on the other hand, is based on Blockchain technology so your data is fully secured by encryption so you are the only person to determine its use.
A blockchain is a distributed database, meaning that the storage devices for the database are not all connected to a common processor. It maintains a growing list of ordered records, called blocks. Each block has a timestamp and a link to a previous block.
Users can only edit the parts of the blockchain that they “own” by possessing the private keys necessary to write to the file. Cryptography ensures that everyone’s copy of the distributed blockchain is kept in synch.
As a poll-based dapp (decentralized app), we believe that security, transparency and integrity should be the essence of the technology we use. That’s why we use blockchain as the main core of our application, as it is a better, safer way to record activities and keep data fresh while maintaining a record of its history. The data can’t be corrupted by anyone or accidentally deleted, and you benefit from both a historical trail of data, plus an instantly up-to-date record.
It is a piece of code programmed onto a blockchain, which defines the terms of a particular transaction. Upon the receipt of a given trigger or input, the smart contract will execute and perform its assigned tasks.
All smart contracts share some common properties.
Because they exist on the blockchain, they have a state, like RAM in a computer does, and this state is shared across the entire network. So, each node running this blockchain has a copy of the state of the smart contract.
They cannot be altered. Although there are ways to extend them or replace parts — if such action has been foreseen by the developers — there is no way to covertly manipulate their content without drawing the attention of the network.
The logic of a smart contract cannot be distorted, so there is no room for interpretation. That is why they’re referred to as a “contract”. They act as an agreement between parties, but one which needs no judge, because the output is produced from the input deterministically.
If you are wondering about what is KYC, then it is an acronym whose full form is ‘Know Your Customer.’ KYC makes it easier to authenticate user identity.
Essentially, the meaning of KYC is to establish an individual’s identity through relevant supporting documents, including photo IDs, Passport …
Pepolls secures its community identity experience in a proactive manner that ensures that their time ultimately feels well spent and safe. Requiring all users to go through a KYC process which would hold people more accountable for their behavior. Pepolls keep its community safe, and take away the growing concern towards burn accounts and bullying.
Because while people can create and maintain as many email addresses as they’d like, on Pepolls they will only have one identity and it would be encrypted. With this one extra step, the presence of trolls on any given social media site would be nonexistent.
