What is krdts?

Pronounced “credits”, the primary objective of the social network is to quantify people’s good deeds by giving them a tangible value and facilitating the user and his network to acknowledge each other by the exchange of “krdts”.

What is a “krdt”

A krdt is the unit of goodness that’s generated when a kind act is performed.

How does it all work?

Every user who signs up with a krdts social networking account is given a default amount of 100 krdts, to recognize their acts till the day they joined. The “krdts” or “krdt score” is the quantified score of your your good deeds. In practice, the higher the score – the “nicer” you are. Users can exchange krdts amongst each other for every act of kindness exchanged.

For example, Dave helped Jessica with her homework, or Raj helped Ming with moving – Jessica and Ming can acknowledge their help by giving them some krdts. This exchange will feature on the “krdts-feed” as a story feed on the application and on Facebook and the change in scores will reflect and increase in the krdt-worthiness of the person, or simply – how much “good” they do.

What sort of things can I send krdts for?

We want to give a personality dimension to the currently inanimate online avatar by empowering it with the most primitive and palpable act of nobility – kindness.
