Kuende is a Modern Content & Entertainment Company (MCEC) that is disrupting, challenging and transforming the social media status-quo .



Through the products already build and those aimed to be further developed, Kuende acts like a launchpad for nano/micro-influencers and creative minds, nurturing them from zero-to-hero, and guiding them to grow and monetize throughout all of their journey.


Empower Creators

Content creators and community builders are our rock-stars! Kuende will play a pro-active role in scouting, unboarding and supporting creative minds.

Branded Digital Goods

Based on their engagement level, creators can generate together with brands different types of digital goods and/or NFTs with different use cases.

Gamified Growth

The challenges start from the beginning of the journey, down to the late stages. Creators have clear paths to grow their audience and have a wider reach.

Monetization Channels

Kuende will offer multiple ways for content creators to monetize, supporting especially the small audience communities/nano-influencers.

In a nutshell, we challenge our community - influencers, consumers, and brands - to create quality content together, generate new revenue streams in the process, while progressively integrating blockchain solutions into our products.

why...?

We envision a world in which social media nurtures and cares for the true social needs of its members. We believe that, for the betterment of individuals and society alike, we have to balance both types of social interactions. Social platforms should not only provide the means to get connected, entertained and informed, but also help preserve the value of real life interaction.

Today’s social media has changed its dynamics, from how we consume and generate content, to the overall expectations of a creator or the new ways to engage and/or monetize. It is slowly splitting into micro-segments with different user behaviours or use cases.

We strongly believe that the future of social media stands in its content creators! In those that put up different valuable resources as their time, energy, creativity, passion or ability to create movements in small communities or even viral trends. We are building everything for them and they are the ones that will shape THE FUTURE OF SOCIAL MEDIA!

Constrained growth because of the social graph approach

The risk of not monetizing smaller audiences

Limited ways to incentivise the followers

Users

Cluttered and noisy Newsfeeds, Fake News & Spam

Decreasing engagement and interest in digital ads

based on the Interests & Behaviour Graphs.

More Than Just KPIs - All User Engagement Actively Betters The World

- The Taggy App -

How Does It Work

Our smart algorithm generates different triads
(a triad = a combination of 3 different hashtags)
that act like prompts.

The community is challenged to generate content
based on the dynamic-changing triads.

Content creators have clear leveling-up structures that
offer access to different features, benefits, or revenue streams.

Hashtags and even usernames can become assets,
fully controlled/owned by the user.

NFTs offer different use cases and act like
enablers for the overall engagement.

NFTs

Generate together with Brands, NFTs that offer different advantages or benefits to the holders

e.g. - a travel company is generating Digital Fridge-Magnets, that act like collectable NFTs. Owning more from a certain country/region, will get you better offers and deals when you want to travel there

Generate NFTs for influencers when they reach a certain community level/number of subscribers

e.g. - owning an Influencer NFT offers free subscription or unlocks the Ambassador status.

Hashtags Can Become NFTs, That Offer Holders A Chance To Earn Based On The Overall Engagement

e.g. - #cats, will probably be the most wanted hashtag, therefore it will have a lower supply.

Ron is the Chief Business Development Officer and member of the Executive Team. His responsibilities include establishing and growing the company’s strategic relationships with Brands, Partners, the influencer community, alliances with technology innovators and strategic investors. “I truly appreciate clever practical innovation and all those that participate in bringing their dreams, solutions for unmet needs and advancements for the better good to market like Kuende. This journey can consume us, so to truly thrive, one’s body and soul need to be nourished both physically and intellectually, exercising all our muscles, especially the brain. I find relief on a mountain bike or blazing a trail into the bush, backcountry skiing following the tracks of our neighbors, the wild animals that live all around us. The ability to interact, share, debate and most importantly to listen to the person in front of you even if a tribal opposite, respecting the others opinion even if you disagree, sharing a great glass of wine or a pint maybe leaving only agreeing to disagree. If you listen, I am confident that you will learn something. The more you learn, the more you will evolve.” }
