Our patent-pending technology has already verified over
100 million page views. It can tell if somebody really paid
attention to an article, PDF, or Youtube video, triggering
rewards (including microcredentials) and unlocking
participation features. It’s privacy-first, most recently
recognized by Mozilla’s Fix The Internet OpenLab.
How can you tell if somebody paid attention?
How can we tell? Using advanced behaviour pattern analysis and AI-driven content analysis (we're aware how jargon-y that sounds, but it's the truth), it can tell how focused you are, and how intensely. It's as close as you'll get to camera-based tracking, without the need for the invasiveness. And it has already processed over 100 million page views with our beta partners over the last couple of years. You can learn more in our FAQ as well.

Help us shape a future where quality beats quantity.
The internet is information. By making it only count for advertising, the information became secondary.
This destroyed our information ecosystem.
The internet is the nervous system of modern society.
We are seeing what happens when it’s optimized for quantity of attention , instead of quality of information.
Readocracy flips the script.
We are in a knowledge economy. Readocracy makes your attention online count as subject matter expertise instead.
Instead of checking your attention for advertising value, Readocracy checks it for learning value. It makes your attention count for your credibility on the subjects you’re passionate about.
Instead of an extractive model where others profit off of you, Readocracy is an additive model: you gain the value. Instead of quantity, it’s all about quality.
Imagine an internet optimized for that, instead.
