Here are the pros and cons of Everipedia:Everipedia is “Everyone’s Encyclopedia”. “Everipedia offers a space for you to dive into anything you find interesting, connect with people who share your interests, and contribute your own perspective.”
The about page does not provide a clear explanation of how this site differs from Wikipedia and/or how they plan to make sure that the mistakes of Wikipedia are not repeated in this site.
- More articles than Wikipedia; To this date this is the largest English encyclopedia;
Editor’s work is rewarded by assigning the "IQ" which can be converted to bitcoins (and $);
Improved user interface than Wikipedia;
Has much less rules than Wikipedia. Namely: (1) articles should be encyclopedic in style; (2) articles should have external references. Nice. Easy to remember. The author of this review made a few Everipedia entries that will never be accepted by Wikipedia authoritarian editors (and that was tested!). The articles simply had sense without many external “independent” reviews (which take no time to fake or create by hiring freelance editors). They simply make sense to me as a scholar. It appears that they make sense to the Everipedia staff too. Good.
Will be a decentralized blockchain-based encyclopedia
- More difficult to receive an account (first you need register at reddit/telegram and request it;
The interface is still buggy. The author detected at least 2 bugs while editing articles;
Not easy import of mediawiki test. No easy export;
This is likely due to large spam and a limited number of editors who can control what is going on;
No android application to view articles.
