REPU (REPU) ICO Review – ICO Token News
What is REPU?
The REPU system or REPU, abbreviated from the English word ‘reputation,’ is a decentralized blockchain technology-based rating and feedback system, which allows you to rethink the way social networks are perceived. The system completely replaces the system of “likes” as a way of rating both companies and users. The rating system functions as an assessment tool and helps in assessing different arenas of the individual’s life, beginning with financial stability, professional skills, and all apparent facets of behavior and interaction with the public.
REPU’s primary goal in introducing this platform is to revolutionize the perception and interaction among social network users, using the rating system, and managing the company’s reputation, by acquiring real business ratings from users. The system also helps in assessing a person in terms of his/her professional qualities. This way, it will help in eliminating the subjective opinion of the recruiter and the impact of the resume on employment.
The system further facilitates the evaluation of individual companies/products/employees thus enabling every user to give ratings plus a review for each element of the business. As a result, business owners can analyze every single unit of their company and communicate with their customers.
Current problems in the market
Long delays when giving feedback
- Long delays in response to feedback on a service using the social networks.
- The customers have to go through a step-by-step process to make it possible.
- If no feedback is given, the management of a company cannot find out the problems, so it is unable to correct its service or product.
Feedback on employees
- Feedback, given on an employee’s behavior and ratings on the service rendered by an employee of a restaurant, hotel, motel or accommodation, help the employees and employers in reviewing each other.
- It is highly useful for the user when there is a choice of rating and giving feedbacks about a specific restaurant and employee separately.
- Due to today’s fragmented market, the owners of companies need to spend a lot of time in creating and maintaining their companies’ pages, moderating, and responding to customer feedback.
- These actions don’t just demand resources, but they are also time consuming.
- Time invested in such activities could be spent on improving the service, or improving the skills of specific employees who lack the company’s general concept.
Solutions being offered by REPU
REPU allows its users, which could be ordinary citizens, companies, employers, recruiters, government officials, law enforcement officials, etc., to make use of the feedback and rating system in everyday life.
Developed as a separate project, the platform plans to integrate into social networks, such as Facebook, Vk.com, Youtube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat and replace the currently available system of “likes”.
Feedback and ratings work through the decentralized blockchain technology and smart contracts. The REPU platform enables users to leverage the feedback and rating system in everyday life.
Some of the key features of this system are include:
- Providing rating (scores) in place of “likes” for social content.
- Providing feedback and ratings about companies.
- Managing the company’s reputation for its owners.
- Professional ratings for recruiters.
Use cases for REPU
A few of the proposed uses for REPU are as follows:
- Banks: Banks can align their credit ratings based on values from the REPU system.
- Insurance companies: Insurance companies can adjust the size of insurance payouts based on the client’s rating.
- Recruiters: Recruiters can evaluate a person in consideration of his/her professional skills and social adaptation taking into account his/her rating.
- Law enforcement agencies: Police can evaluate a person’s rating to ascertain whether he/she poses a danger to society.
- Ordinary citizens: Ordinary citizens are allowed to evaluate REPU ratings when meeting new people.
- Advertising industry: Advertisers can target users who have a specific rating level.
- Hotel industry: Hotels can pre-define conditions for the accommodation of customers. If a customer’s rating goes below the set benchmark, then he/she may have to adhere to stricter conditions.
How does REPU work?
The main goal of REPU is to create a reputation system where users including ordinary citizens, employers, recruiters, government officials, police, etc. can use a rating and feedback system in their everyday life.
The platform is being developed as a separate project, although the goal is to integrate it into social networks such as YouTube, Instagram, and LinkedIn in the future.
The basic function of REPU is to replace the existing “like” systems with the REPU system based on blockchain technology and smart contracts. When somebody likes your Facebook post, for example, you can enhance your REPU rating.
One of the most important things to note about REPU is that all reputation data is built on the blockchain, which eliminates the possibility of forgery or deletion of reviews and ratings.
What is the REPU token?
- The REPU token is a virtual currency that you can use inside the platform to pay for the company’s reputation management services (monthly, quarterly, half year, and annual subscriptions), reward users for ratings to make internal payments for goods/services within the REPU infrastructure.
- This cryptocurrency will be awarded to users who give ratings within the system.
- These tokens are automatically generated by the REPU smart contract but only when a company makes payment for reputation management services with its own means or methods.
- REPU tokens are built on Ethereum ERC20 (similar to other ICO tokens such as Guardium, TrustedHealth, Energy Premier, BunnyToken, CryptoLoans, Omnitude, Ternio, Adblurb).
- The REPU issue is limited to 250,000,000 REPU during the closed round, pre-ICO and ICO.
- Undistributed REPU released for sale during the closed round, pre-ICO and ICO, will be frozen (destroyed) on the same contract without the possibility of subsequent withdrawal or use.

The REPU project will change the way we perceive employees, businesses, friends, acquaintances, and strangers. With this new and innovative platform, the company aims to replace the existing social media “likes” with a global rating system. Every social media “like” you receive adds to your REPU rating. The higher REPU ratings you receive, the higher social status it brings, plus better banking rates and insurance, better jobs, and even better hotels.
Overall, REPU is the result of an innovative idea, which is full of potential. If you believe in this project and see benefits through investment, then you should get ready to join its token sale to contribute to its development.
