What problem does the idea help to solve and how does your solution work? (2,000 characters maximum)

My idea is to build something similar to a regular hyper-loop system with Maglev powertrain and everything. The only difference is that it integrates a special kinetic energy based generator or "harvester" that processes data or mines cryptocurrency as the ride is in use. The ultimate idea is utilizing this with a special cryptocurrency mining algorithm I created that can offer better/faster hashing rates compared to what is technologically available in the market. The reason this type of technology can apply to third world countries is that the ride is paying for itself, so technically the government can provide cheap or free transportation through these transit systems. Also, imagine how fast it would be for communities to reach each other. You are basically working on breaking the location barrier.

UAE: Dubai - Want to eventually work with Dubai's Smart Cities initiative Egypt: Cairo - The government is working on investing in new technology for a new "Cairo" India: Want to deploy across various different cities and rural areas in India.

Building Bridges: What bridge does your idea build between people on the move and neighbors towards a shared future of stability and promise? (500 characters)

You are solving multiple problems such as: - The negative environmental effects of cryptocurrency and/or data mining/validation - The cost efficiency of transportation, so that it is more accessible - Having access to better technology to get places faster

What part of the displacement journey is your solution addressing

  • Arriving and settling at a destination community

Tell us how you'd describe the type of innovation you are proposing

  • Technology-enabled: Existing approach is more effective or scalable with the addition of technology

Idea Proposal Stage

  • Blueprint: We are exploring the idea and gathering the inspiration and information we need to test it with real users.

Hi Andrew,

We appreciate your response, and thank you for giving us an opportunity to meet each other. We're always looking forward to collaborating with anyone interested in protecting our planet and empowering all people.

What is

WeAppan is a new form of digital connectivity within an all-in-one mobile application concept. It secures your data and privacy, you own your data, you earn through your data, and you are connected to everyone, everything, everywhere.


After developing our application through decentralized system of data ownership and security, our platform will focus on two new functions that are people centered. Our application's main function is called Data Matching. This is the program that will begin the process of collectively building real-time solutions for everyone on a global scale.

#1. Data Matching is the secure and decentralized way WeAppan will instantly assigns everything you personally have to offer, want, or look for with a secured IP address attached to that data online e.g., your current location, personal profile, resume, personal property, products or services, your passions, hobbies, interest or talents. Whenever the company, people, places or things looking for what you have to offer or have what you’re looking for is available, your commonly linked data will be automatically connected, secured, then sent directly to both of you, and the other party, or assigned to resolve your situations autonomously in real time through direct connectivity.

#2. UDI: Universal Data Income will be a decentralized online payment system structured through the combined technologies of WeAppan/Holochain and implemented in order to directly pay all users, or members the majority of Whatappenz advertising revenue in exchange for those members sharing their data through the platform. I'm currently attracting serious thinkers interested in improving the world for the betterment of all people. If you need more information, or clarification on the information I've provided for you, please don't hesitate to ask me anything? I'm always available to answer your questions.

Please feel free to visit our project's vision map on and review our extensive action plan. Our project will benefit all people. Creating an all inclusive system that empowers everyone with their own personal data is the first step in developing real solutions for everyone. Creating a difference on the ground calls for making a multitude of changes that will enable us all to work together to realistically solve these systemic challenges.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
"Together we'll humanize the power of technology to improve the quality of life for all people and humanity.
