Rewards in crypto can be earned by the users of a social media messaging app, Make Sense labs, a decentralized application firm that is backed by venture capitalist, Tim Draper.
On its sense chat app that was developed in 2018, is where the technology company launched its crypto reward feature. By interacting with others online, subscribing to different channels, creating message threads and inviting new users, the app allows users to earn the company’s native SENSE tokens
The product was created to be devoid of a third party data harvesting, that is associated with high profile social media and messenger companies, according to Crystal Rose Pierce, CEO of Make Sense and wife of controversial crypto figure Brock Pierce. While maintaining privacy, the app users will retain charge of their data.
In the words of Crystal Rose:
“We believe that a person’s data is uniquely their own, and the value of that data should be theirs,” said Pierce. “By using Sense Chat, members are empowered to have more control over their experience, reward one another, and curate content using their SENSE tokens as a ‘vote.’”
Even messaging apps created with the intention of preserving users’ privacy have experienced massive breaches. Last year, Telegram suffered a data leak that exposed some personal data of its users on the darknet. While messaging app Signal accepts donations in crypto, Sense Chat may be one of the few privacy-oriented apps to offer crypto rewards.
