11. Reward system

Revain's goal is to provide high quality and authentic users’ reviews on all the global products and services using new emerging technologies such as blockchain and ML (machine learning).

The Revain AI (artificial intelligence) system scans all content, filters out low-quality reviews and makes high-quality comments that deserve a reward. Reward tokens ("REV") are distributed to such authors for their quality reviews.

The utility ecosystem of the REV token. Technically, the REV token is based on the ERC20 and TRC20 smart contracts, and the smart contract is also being tested in the BEP20 network. Technically, the REV token is not tied to any network, it can migrate and match combinations. REV tokens are used by the Revain community in 2 ecosystem categories:

- In the interaction system of the company - service / product 
- In the system of authors rewards for their experience, feedback and opinion.

  • 11.1 For companies 
    Since users can register as authors and write about companies/products on the Revain platform, the other side of the equation requires those companies/products be included in the Revain ecosystem. The Revain community believes that authors and the reviewed companies should develop a close relationship. Companies should reward reviewers when they write an honest and thoughtful review. It also helps companies to build a community of contributors who not only help them to build their corporate/product reputation but also take into account their experience and use their personal feedback to improve their product or service. Companies have to register on the platform to become part of the community. The Revain community reviews the registration form. Once approved, the company will have its own public page on the Revain platform. After that, the company representative may access the company profile and make the necessary entries and changes, such as uploading logos, entering a company description, and respond to any reviews about them on the platform. The Revain community are able to create the pages for any of the companies on the platform on their own, so that the authors have an opportunity to start uploading reviews without waiting for the respective brand to officially create their profile. This means that if a company page already exists on the Revain platform, the corresponding company's corporate account will automatically link to it when it is created by an authorized representative. Each company that registers on the Revain platform can determine the amount of reward (in the “REV” utility token) that they are willing to give to any author who writes an acceptable (conforming to the rules and recommendations of the Revain platform) review. To do this, companies need to fund their internal wallet on the Revain platform with the “REV” utility token.If a company hasn't purchased "REV" yet, it can buy it from a number of exchanges, including Bittrex, HitBTC, KuCoin, and many more. The newly purchased REV tokens must then be transferred to the company's internal REV wallet on the Revain platform. Once the REV tokens are placed on the internal wallet of the Revain platform, the company is able to set the number of REV tokens per review that will be paid to the authors for their actions. After that, a text will be displayed on the company's page indicating the amount of additional reward in REV tokens that this company is ready to pay to authors for reviews of its products/services. Hence while the Revain community does not allow companies to influence the content of reviews in any way, it allows companies to encourage users to post reviews about them. It is important to note that these "corporate" rewards do not replace the standard author fees for posting reviews or author fees for viewing their posts, but act as additional bonuses only from companies.
  • 11.2 In order to become a part of the Revain community, the user must go through the registration procedure. After that, he will become a member of the Revain community and will have access to the author's personal account on the platform, where he will be able to fill out his profile with information, as well as pass verification for subsequent receipt of rewards for various actions on the Revain platform. There are several options for rewarding authors with REV tokens.
  • 11.3 Authors are rewarded for viewing a published Review if they meet the following conditions:

    • 11.3.1.6 Repeated views by the same visitor do not count.
    • 11.3.1.7 The subject of the review should be a company, service or mass product in demand.

    • 11.3.3.5 increase the number of views by organizing events that give the opportunity to receive an award.

    • 11.4.1 The subject of the review should be a company, service or mass product in demand.

The reward is credited to the Author's balance after 00:05 UTC. Editing and updating a review does not have any effect on the already accrued bonus. When blocking a review for violating the rules, the bonus can be debited from the Author's balance at any time.
    • 11.4.7 The amount of the bonus depends on the product’s category and its relevance, text and photo in the Review. Exceeding the text volume of 2000 characters and 3 photos in the Review does not increase the additional bonus.
    • 11.4.8 The average reward is 0-3 US dollars equivalent of REV tokens for a published review.

    • 11.5.1 Each company that registers on the Revain platform can determine the amount of reward (in the “REV” utility token) that they are willing to give to any author who writes an acceptable (conforming to the rules and recommendations of the Revain platform) review.

The user needs to follow the news in the blog, as well as in the author's personal account. The reward for participating in events can range from 0.1-100 US dollars in the equivalent of “REV” tokens.
