Ask @askfmio:

And what exactly is the meaning of this social network? Not very clear. Just another ask?

Tнe Gιrl Sαdιѕт|VD
ASKfm 2.0 is not equal with ASKfm. The new platform will bring together opinion leaders, celebrities, enthusiasts to build a knowledge-based economy with market rules and mechanisms. Everyone will be able to monetize their knowledge, get information from trusted sources and get paid for quality content.

Does this mean askfm as it is will just be replaced? If the barrier to entry for the upcoming one is a bit much then I just don't know..

rhymes with stan
Сurrent ASKfm will be transformed to a broader product. ASKfm can be continued to be used for communication with those who matter to you, but we'll be adding additional sections of product where we will provide users with an access to internal content-value based economy where you can monetize your knowledge. Please stay tuned for the upcoming updates from us how it will technically work.

What is ASKfm 2.0 all about?

You feedback has always been very important to us. We are now going to prove it by using YOUR suggestions in improving ASKfm and making it an even better network for our amazing community.
So, here goes!
We are pleased to announce that we will be launching a token sale and moving to a blockchain platform that eventually will result in, as we call it, ASKfm 2.0 major upgrade.
Hold tight.
It is very important for us to inform you guys about what's happening, so here are few basic things to help you understand the insights and be aware of what we are doing right now.
First things first.
Changing the infrastructure will in no way change or alter the existing data. It will, however, be easier to access, easier to contribute to, and easier to share for you.
ASKfm 2.0 will offer more advanced, rewarding and diverse means of users' interaction within the community that is set to grow rapidly.
By “tokenizing” the platform, we will attract high profile users (what we call “power users”). Celebrities, influencers, athletes and other experts will have strong incentives to become a part of ASKfm by answering questions and participating in Q&As. We also want to give you an option to earn tokens for answering questions and a chance to spend them on asking questions to "power users" or on some cool upcoming premium features.
Tokens, you said?
Tokens (also known as cryptocurrency) are a form of decentralized and paperless money. In other words, tokens replace cash for online transactions and exchange of value.
Blockchain what?
Cryptocurrency is powered and managed by blockchain technology. Although it won't affect your experience when using the platform, it's a revolutionary and unique way to keep your data and tokens safe and sound. Basically, it runs "under the hood" and provides you with a wide variety of amazing technological advantages, unlike any other engine.
What is that ICO thingy you were talking about?
ICO is an abbreviation for Initial Coin Offering, it's a blockchain thing. In other words, it is sort of a crowdfunding that will finance our development of a new revolutionary platform. You can actually become an investor yourself and play your part in the first of a kind and the biggest platform transition to blockchain in the world.
And most importantly.
With the help of ICO we are planning to decrease or even remove ads from the platform and become one of a kind ad and subscription free social network.
More to come!
We are very excited about these new updates and really hope that you are going to enjoy them too.
As our team continues to move forward with this vision for the future, we will update you on more specific details of 2.0 development, new features, and improvements. It will take time but we are positive that we will succeed and give you a renovated favorite and amazing place to share your opinions, make new friends and monetize your knowledge.
Stay tuned for more updates!
