FAQ

What is Trive?

Trive is a contraction of truth hive. Trive refers to crowdswarming and blockchain verifying independent facts to kill fake news. Trive is a social science global consensus engine that researches and clarifies through crowd wisdom using blockchain based rewards and verification mechanisms.

How does Trive work?

Trive will enable people all over the world to research, verify, and score the truth of almost any piece of knowledge. Trive implements crowdsourced research by using game theory, blockchain, and cryptocurrency to incentivize rational behavior. An antagonistic relationship between participants creates and balances the resulting effort, which is hashed and stashed to the blockchain for posterity.

Trive uses Human Swarming, an optimized method for unleashing the wisdom of crowds.
