What is auskunft.de
auskunft.de is one of the leading regional search engines that works with daily updated data. With almost 10 million page views and 5.7 million visitors per month (measerued by the IVW - German Audit Bureau of Circulation), the platform launched in 2016 already plays right at the top. auskunft.de relies on its own crawling technology as well as various machine learning and heuristic procedures to provide its users with a scoring based purely on web analysis using various procedures.
Data as labor?
A few month ago Steve Wozniak said the following: "I don't like the fact that you give all your personal data - Facebook makes billions off of it but they dont give you a portion of it back. It would be really nice if for all the stuff I contributed I get a certain amount of money per month back for it - that it is worth. A litte amount. Wouldn't that be great?"
(@ WeAreDevelopers Conference 2018, Vienna). This describes the approach of data as labor pretty good. If you are more interested in this topic there is a good read here @ https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3093683

We have plans for many more "payable" actions within our application. So we will start with a few and add more later.
Screenshots of the App
We are sorry to inform you that you will not get rich by using the auskunft.de App. Although we are paying the users for the first time for their valueable content you cannot quit your day job and do the app for a living.
- auskunft.de is only available on the german market (sorry)
- Due to legal reasons the wallet is limited. You may send your earned XLM to an external account but you cannot receive XLM from any other source than our wallets. This has money laundry reasons and we'd like to avoid a mandatory KYC for the beginning.
Both Apps for iOS & Android are not yet released to the public. We'll annouce a beta test in the next weeks. So stay tuned!
And now we would love to hear your feedback, ideas and suggestions to our project!
