Technology has enabled our society to evolve in an accelerated fashion. It has impacted every aspect of our behavior and will continue to have even bigger role in our lives. How technology will determine a better future remains a challenge and a scope of opportunity. We believe in technological advancements that create a fairer, more inclusive and more sustainable world.
Blockchain, equipped with the power of decentralization, has the potential to be an enabler and accelerator for positive change. Our goal is to use this disruptive technology to fundamentally support a more inclusive and harmonious world, in resonance with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as outlined by United Nations.
We introduced Horyou platform – a novel platform for individual, organizations and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – fostering social good. On 18th December 2013, we launched Horyou social network, gathering since then a diverse community of changemakers and social good doers with more than 250,000 users and 1500 organizations from more than 180 countries. In 2014, we established Horyou Foundation, a non-profit institution based in Switzerland, which promotes and advances causes for social good. Horyou takes a number of initiatives including organizing international events, supporting organizations, civil society and local communities.
In 2016, we announced Spotlight, the first digital currency promoting economic inclusion and supporting the United Nations 2030 agenda. It was then officially recognized at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit on 28th November 2017. We are opening (H1 2018) our platform to corporate entities to connect their CSR programs to our technology and community.
We are now introducing HoryouToken, our utility token to be built on top of Ethereum Blockchain to fuel the virtuous circle of Horyou. HoryouToken aims to create community incentive to leverage social media activities for positive and meaningful interactions. Through smart contracts, Spotlight and Horyou Foundation, the Horyou platform will monetize daily transactions of HoryouTokens to generate a force of positive impact for the community. This enables social good at the protocol layer for Horyou and other decentralized platforms, a truly novel approach that we call Blockchain with a Purpose.
