New Web3 ID app lets users find each other based on proven interests

Quivr Launches Platform to Establish Social Credibility

On June 27, the development team of a Web3 app launched a platform that allows users to establish their social credibility through blockchain technology. Named “Quivr”, the app permits users to link other applications they use, including Spotify, Steam, and Apple Music. By observing the user’s activity in these apps, Quivr generates blockchain badges that verify their interests or affiliation with certain groups, which can be used as a way to identify users with similar interests.

Quivr has gone live on the Apple App Store, with plans for an Android and web version to be available within two weeks, developers informed Cointelegraph. Over 10,000 users signed up during the app’s testing period.

As per the announcement, Quivr has collaborated with various celebrities and organizations to create a sense of community on its app, which includes Ross Butler, Jack Dylan Grazer, Ohio State, Arizona State, Kansas State, and Fenix Games.

In an interview with Cointelegraph, Quivr’s co-founder and CEO Ray Lee revealed that the current iteration of Quivr is able to integrate with 11 applications, which include Spotify, LinkedIn, Steam, Twitter, Apple Music, Apple Health, Instagram, TikTok, Audius and Canvas.

The badges that users are able to acquire are determined by their behavior on these apps, thus enabling them to demonstrate their credentials through their actions. For instance, if someone listens to jazz music on Spotify, they may be awarded a “jazz fan” badge, and if they play fighting games on Steam, they could receive a “fighting gamer” badge.

If users need to document a credential that cannot be validated through an app, they may submit a video or image for review by community validators as an alternate form of verification.

Users can utilize Quivr to browse each other’s profiles and send private messages to one another, thus facilitating communication between those who have proven to have similar interests. As of now, only private messages are available, however, the team is exploring the concept of forming “community and subgroups around conversations” akin to a “validated Discord” in the future, according to Lee.

Web3 App Developers Compete for Share of Influencer Market

Sam Altman’s Worldcoin has raised $115M for a decentralized identification system.

Quivr operates on the Polygon network, but does not necessitate that users download a distinct wallet or remember and store seed words. Rather, it utilizes Magic SDK for logins, a kind of advanced wallet technology that does not necessitate seed words.

Web3 app developers are still vying for a share of the lucrative social media and influencer market. On June 8th, Subsocial, a Polkadot-based chat app, enabled compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine, while the Polygon-based Lens network created a “layer 3” scaling solution for quicker posts on April 26th.

Despite the fact that none of these applications have yet to rival the likes of Facebook and Twitter, certain Web3 experts are of the opinion that social apps will be the application that will bring blockchain technology to the public.
