Upstand.io is a social platform that will help people build like-minded communities, create political movements, and organize large-scale real-life social efforts. Upstand is a network of human interest crowdsourced through machine learning with the goal of expanding your reach beyond existing relationship networks. It intimately combines content and activity, allowing users to seamlessly move from one to the other to create effective engagement.
Upstand’s economically-enabled content curation engine will be an experiment in building a viable crowd-curation system that can serve such use cases as ethical marketing, customer discovery, and community engagement. As we improve the curation methodology, the system will become fully decentralized, ensuring fairness of access and contribution, independence and quality of recommendations, as well as appropriate censorship-resistance.
