POLLING STATION

The Polling Station was created to recognize the value of tokens and the communities they are building; by giving their members a place to vote and support their favorite tokens. A lot of the excitement around crypto focuses on the market value and speculation, so the Polling Station is for ‘HODLers’ who can look past a token’s market value.

AIRWAY

Airway allows students to easily share their past assignments, tests, and notes as resources for their peers to use. In exchange for publishing their documents to the social portion of the app, users can reward each other by upvoting posts, thus transferring an amount of Airway’s Branded Token as a reward. These tokens are earned through either purchasing, viewing ads, receiving upvotes, post views, as well simply using the app. The tokens earned may be cashed out to a tangible fiat reward.
