Lunyr

Lunyr is an Ethereum-based crowdsourced knowledge base that rewards users with app tokens for contributing and peer reviewing information. The Lunyr platform is live on the Ethereum Mainnet and is the first decentralized crowdsourced encyclopedia on Ethereum. [1]

The CEO is Arnold Pham, who cofounded the company in 2016 alongside Andrew Tran, a former Project Manager at Oracle.

Lunyr is considered a dead project and has not seen developer activity since 2018.[2][19]

About

The company is based in the heart of Silicon Valley, particularly in the town of Santa Clara, California. On April 27th, 2017, the startup ended a crowdsale with 47,923 in Ethereum ($3.7 Million) which has made Lunyr the largest crowdsale on the Ethereum platform at the time. The Lunyr token is named LUN, and is critical to making incentivized contribution and peer review feasible.
