Everipedia (/ˌɛvərɪˈpdiə/) is a defunct online encyclopedia. Everipedia was founded in 2014 and was officially launched in 2015, as a fork of Wikipedia by Larry Sanger (who co-founded Wikipedia). In 2022, Everipedia rebranded to IQ.wiki.[3] IQ.Wiki was the first wiki within the crypto industry and claims to be the largest blockchain and crypto encyclopedia.[4] Since rebranding to IQ.wiki, the encyclopedia's Everipedia articles have been archived.[3] The company was initially headquartered in Westwood, Los Angeles but has since relocated to Santa Monica, California.[5] The site depicts itself as "The World's Largest Blockchain & Crypto Encyclopedia" and formerly as "everyone's encyclopedia".[6][7][8][9]

Fork (software development)

Fork (software development)

In software engineering, a project fork happens when developers take a copy of source code from one software package and start independent development on it, creating a distinct and separate piece of software. The term often implies not merely a development branch, but also a split in the developer community; as such, it is a form of schism. Grounds for forking are varying user preferences and stagnated or discontinued development of the original software.

History

Everipedia (2014–2022)

Everipedia, a portmantaeu of "Everyone's Encyclopedia", began in December 2014 as a small project of Sam Kazemian and Theodor Forselius in Kazemian's college dormitory room at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).[10][5][11]

The encyclopedia launched in January 2015[12][6] as a fork of Wikipedia. Travis Moore joined the company as a co-founder in the winter of 2015 and Mahbod Moghadam joined as a co-founder in July 2015.[5][11]

The company raised capital and received funding from angel investors. In July 2015, the company got its first seed funding from Mucker Capital[5] and raised close to $130,000 from 201 investors on Wefunder.[13][14] In October 2015, George Beall was introduced to Everipedia at a presentation in California State University, San Bernardino.[15] After selling his technology start-up Touch Tiles in January 2016, Beall joined the group of co-founders.[10] In 2016, the site generated most of its revenue from advertisements.[5] The company aims to generate income through ways apart from donations or banners.[16]

In January 2017, they had eight full-time workers including two developers.[17] By February 2018, headcount had increased to 15 full-time workers.[18] As of January 2017, they raised $700,000 from angel investors.[17] It was announced on February 8, 2018, that the company raised $30 million in funding headed by Galaxy Digital's EOS.io Ecosystem Fund.[19] In December 2017, Everipedia announced that co-founder of Wikipedia, Larry Sanger, had become the chief information officer of Everipedia.[20][21] On October 18, 2019, Sanger announced his resignation from this position.[22]

The majority of Everipedia's articles were copied from Wikipedia and promotional material about cryptocurrency and can still be accessed on the former domain.[23]

Rebrand to IQ.Wiki (2022–present)

Everipedia officially rebranded to IQ.Wiki in October 2022 and relaunched in its beta stage. As a result, many of the old articles have since been archived and can still be accessed at the former Everipedia domain. IQ.Wiki operates under its parent company "IQ", a for-profit company headquartered in Santa Monica, California.[24]

Angel investor

Angel investor

Angel investors usually give support to start-ups at the initial moments, once or in a consecutive manner, and when most investors are not prepared to back them. In a survey of 150 founders conducted by Wilbur Labs, about 70% of entrepreneurs will face potential business failure, and nearly 66% will face this potential failure within 25 months of launching their company. A small but increasing number of angel investors invest online through equity crowdfunding or organize themselves into angel groups or angel networks to share investment capital, as well as to provide advice to their portfolio companies. The number of angel investors has greatly increased since the mid-20th century.

Seed money

Seed money

Seed money, sometimes known as seed funding or seed capital, is a form of securities offering in which an investor invests capital in a startup company in exchange for an equity stake or convertible note stake in the company. The term seed suggests that this is a very early investment, meant to support the business until it can generate cash of its own, or until it is ready for further investments. Seed money options include friends and family funding, seed venture capital funds, angel funding, and crowdfunding.

Blockchain signatures

On December 6, 2017, the company announced plans to move to generating edits and storing information using the EOS blockchain.[26] Everipedia also stated they were building a peer-to-peer wiki network that adds an incentive system by using cryptocurrency technology to incentivize editors with tokens that have legitimate monetary value.[27] After the blockchain is implemented, the company plans to convert the points into a token currency.[28] The tokenized system would let every user become a stakeholder in the wiki network. Each editor will put their token into play for each edit.[28] If their contribution is accepted, the user gets back the token, which will have obtained value in proportion to the content added.[28] If the edit is not accepted, the user does not get their token back.[29]

IQ Tokens were planned to be airdropped to the EOS list in February, with a network launch planned for June according to Forselius.[30]

Everipedia launched on the EOS blockchain on August 9, 2018.[31][32] Everipedia says the blockchain model does not have centralized servers, therefore eliminating the cost of servers.[33] As Everipedia is decentralized via blockchain, Forselius claims that it is not possible for governments to censor Everipedia by its assigned server IP addresses.[34][35][36] On November 3, 2020, the Associated Press began publishing incoming results from that day's 2020 United States presidential election onto the Ethereum and EOS blockchains using the Everipedia OraQle.[37] As of 2022, the company no longer registers signatures on the EOS blockchain and has since been using the Polygon blockchain to generate edits and store information. Polygon allows the signatures to be recorded without any gas fees, unlike other blockchains. The company has plans to support Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain in the future.

BrainDao and IQ token

The IQ Token was officially launched in July 2018.[30]

BrainDAO was formed in December 2021 and is the native DAO and treasury of the IQ token which powers IQ.wiki. It operates as a non-profit organization. The BrainDAO treasury portfolio consists of Ethereum, IQ tokens, stablecoins, NFTs, and other digital assets to back the value of the IQ token. By September of 2022, BrainDAO had accumulated $2 million of Ethereum and the value of its portfolio exceeded $5 million.[38]

It was developed by the private company Block.one and launched in 2017. The platform was later released as open-source software.

Blockchain

Blockchain

A blockchain is a distributed ledger with growing lists of records (blocks) that are securely linked together via cryptographic hashes. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. The timestamp proves that the transaction data existed when the block was created. Since each block contains information about the previous block, they effectively form a chain, with each additional block linking to the ones before it. Consequently, blockchain transactions are irreversible in that, once they are recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without altering all subsequent blocks.

Peer-to-peer

Peer-to-peer

Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing or networking is a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between peers. Peers are equally privileged, equipotent participants in the network. They are said to form a peer-to-peer network of nodes.

Airdrop (cryptocurrency)

Airdrop (cryptocurrency)

An airdrop is an unsolicited distribution of a cryptocurrency token or coin, usually for free, to numerous wallet addresses. Airdrops are often associated with the launch of a new cryptocurrency or a DeFi protocol, primarily as a way of gaining attention and new followers, resulting in a larger user base and a wider disbursement of coins. Airdrops have been a more important part of ICOs since crypto entrepreneurs have started doing private sales instead of public offerings to raise initial capital. One example of this is by the company Omise, which gave away five percent of its OmiseGO cryptocurrency to Ethereum holders in September 2017.

Associated Press

Associated Press

The Associated Press (AP) is an American non-profit news agency headquartered in New York City. Founded in 1846, it operates as a cooperative, unincorporated association, and produces news reports that are distributed to its members, U.S. newspapers and broadcasters.

The Democratic ticket of former vice president Joe Biden and the junior U.S. senator from California Kamala Harris defeated the incumbent Republican president Donald Trump and incumbent vice president Mike Pence. The election took place against the backdrop of the global COVID-19 pandemic and related recession. It was the first election since 1992 in which the incumbent president failed to win a second term. The election saw the highest voter turnout by percentage since 1900, with each of the two main tickets receiving more than 74 million votes, surpassing Barack Obama's record of 69.5 million votes from 2008. Biden received more than 81 million votes, the most votes ever cast for a candidate in a U.S. presidential election.

Matic is an ERC-20 token, allowing for compatibility with other Ethereum based digital currencies. Over 7,000 blockchain projects are supported by the platform.

Decentralized autonomous organization

Decentralized autonomous organization

A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), sometimes called a decentralized autonomous corporation (DAC), is an organization constructed by rules encoded as a computer program that is often transparent, controlled by the organization's members and not influenced by a central government. In general terms, DAOs are member-owned communities without centralized leadership. A DAO's financial transaction records and program rules are maintained on a blockchain. The precise legal status of this type of business organization is unclear.

Content and users

Everipedia adapted social media elements such as letting celebrities communicate with fans,[39] and allows users to create pages on any topic as long as the content is cited and neutral.[5][40]

In March 2016, Everipedia had 200,000 published pages.[10] As of October 2017, the majority of pages on Everipedia were copies of Wikipedia articles.[41] In 2022, cryptocurrency critic and Wikipedia editor Molly White said that Everipedia "is largely still a graveyard of content they've just scraped off Wikipedia, articles that people have written about themselves, and, increasingly, crypto spam."[42] Everipedia reportedly utilized a live Internet bot to monitor Wikipedia for changes, synchronizing such changes but giving preference to local edits on Everipedia.[29]

Everipedia allows for a larger range of articles than Wikipedia, as the English Wikipedia's notability guidelines are stricter than Everipedia's.[27] Everipedia does not allow censorship on any topic for sourced articles.[43]

There are communities in Brazil, China, Germany, and India.[17] The company said in 2017 that Everipedia has 17,000 registered editors and 2,000 active editors as well as 3 million monthly users.[29] In 2019, Kazemian said there were 7,000 active editors.[44]

Several dozen vandals have been banned from Everipedia.[40] In a 2017 interview with Boing Boing, Kazemian claimed that the Everipedia community normally identifies a vandal in five minutes.[40] The company has a group of editors who review the activity on the site and delete content that they consider suspicious.[10]

The site frequently focuses on trending topics,[43] with the few articles created by users of the site mostly being about sensational topics such as YouTubers, memes, activists, white supremacists, and police shooting victims.[41]

The site has been criticized for initially presenting false information in wiki pages on breaking news topics.[41] The incidents were identifying the wrong people in the 2017 Las Vegas shooting[45] and the United Express Flight 3411 incident.[7] Jeff John Roberts of The Outline raised concerns about the privacy ramifications of Everipedia, which developed many of its articles by gathering content from social media, creating publicly visible entries on non-notable individuals. Roberts also noted that trolls have used Everipedia to promote conspiracy theories and defamatory comments.[46]

Everipedia previously offered a service for a monthly fee that allows for users and businesses to create tailored Everipedia entries that get "full-time monitoring for updates and preventing vandalism".[41]

Social media

Social media

Social media are interactive technologies that facilitate the creation and sharing of information, ideas, interests, and other forms of expression through virtual communities and networks.

Internet bot

Internet bot

An Internet bot, web robot, robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet, usually with the intent to imitate human activity on the Internet, such as messaging, on a large scale. An Internet bot plays the client role in a client–server model whereas the server role is usually played by web servers. Internet bots are able to perform tasks, that are simple and repetitive, much faster than a person could ever do. The most extensive use of bots is for web crawling, in which an automated script fetches, analyzes and files information from web servers. More than half of all web traffic is generated by bots.

Notability in the English Wikipedia

Notability in the English Wikipedia

In the English version of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, notability is a criterion to determine whether a topic merits a separate Wikipedia article. It is described in the guideline "Wikipedia:Notability". In general, notability is an attempt to assess whether the topic has "gained sufficiently significant attention by the world at large and over a period of time as evidenced by significant coverage in reliable secondary sources that are independent of the topic". The notability guideline was introduced in 2006 and has since been subject to various controversies.

Breaking news

Breaking news

Breaking news, interchangeably termed late-breaking news and also known as a special report or special coverage or news flash, is a current issue that broadcasters feel warrants the interruption of scheduled programming or current news in order to report its details. Its use is also assigned to the most significant story of the moment or a story that is being covered live. It could be a story that is simply of wide interest to viewers and has little impact otherwise. Many times, breaking news is used after the news organization has already reported on the story. When a story has not been reported on previously, the graphic and phrase "Just In" is sometimes used instead.

2017 Las Vegas shooting

2017 Las Vegas shooting

On October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, opened fire on the crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada. From his 32nd-floor suites in the Mandalay Bay hotel, he fired more than 1,000 bullets, killing 60 people and wounding at least 413. The ensuing panic brought the total number of injured to approximately 867. About an hour later, he was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The motive for the mass shooting is officially undetermined.

Conspiracy theory

Conspiracy theory

A conspiracy theory is an explanation for an event or situation that asserts the existence of a conspiracy by powerful and sinister groups, often political in motivation, when other explanations are more probable. The term generally has a negative connotation, implying that the appeal of a conspiracy theory is based in prejudice, emotional conviction, or insufficient evidence. A conspiracy theory is distinct from a conspiracy; it refers to a hypothesized conspiracy with specific characteristics, including but not limited to opposition to the mainstream consensus among those who are qualified to evaluate its accuracy, such as scientists or historians.
