Abstract
By nature, decentralized technologies such as those enabled by the blockchain connect
people from around the world, yet this connection has yet to be made social. The world
currently lacks a single, consolidated place for people to gather, discuss, and process
crypto-asset information. The Tela Network Foundation aims to create Hilo, a community
that socially aggregates crypto-asset knowledge. Accessible to anyone interested in
cryptocurrency investment, from beginners to experts to influencers, Hilo is a social network
that fosters positive peer engagement, trusted peer discussion, and expert mentorship.
To these ends, the Tela Network Foundation is dedicated to assuring the privacy and data
sovereignty of our users. Hilo will be the first social media platform for crypto-asset
enthusiasts in which:

User data is owned by users, not by the platform.

The platform has no access to user data, thereby ensuring user privacy.

Users reward one another fo...

Problems Common to Centralized
Online Social Networks

Data Exploitation​
- ​
Data represents an increasing portion of the total value-add in
the contemporary economy. When collected from individuals without remuneration
and without their ongoing control, a system emerges in which the uncompensated
value created by the many enriches the few. At the Tela Network Foundation, we
believe this type of exploitation is neither necessary nor conducive to a healthy
online social network, and has no place in the crypto community.

Data Vulnerability​

- Systems that centralize access to or storage of user data may
inadvertently create ”honeypots”––information systems attractive to hackers. Recent
years have witnessed attacks on many such centralized data systems, exposing to
unauthorized use the sensitive data of millions of people.

Data Privacy​

Problems Common Among Crypto-asset
Investors & Enthusiasts

Fragmentation​
- Crypto-asset information is typically fragmented and scattered
across a variety of applications and websites. New learners generally have no
opportunity to learn from, much less interact with, topical experts.

Unfriendly Interface​

- Few options are available for crypto-investors to view and
learn more about their assets. Among those that do exist, interface complexity often
undermines user experience.

Opacity​
- Those new to crypto-assets are confronted with intimidating jargon and
few trusted information sources.

Toxicity​

- Many online social spaces dedicated to crypto-investment have become
well known for in-group/out-group dynamics, bullying, chauvinism, attack bots,
trolling, and other forms of social dysfunction.

Exclusivity​
- Crypto-influencers are often inaccessible. While ...

The mission of the the ​
Tela Network Foundation​
is to provide users with a
non-exploitative, trusted, private, and consolidated solution for social-network based
learning in the crypto space. Incentivized using game theory through an inbuilt utility token
economy, the platform fosters an engaging peer network, providing new and experienced
investors a combination of social news aggregation, portfolio tracking, trusted peer
discussion, and one-on-one mentorship.
— Tela Network Foundation —
The Tela Network Foundation is committed to creating accessible social spaces for all
members of the crypto community. We believe it is critical to empower a diverse variety of
people to embrace crypto assets...

Launch Partner
The Tela Network Foundation anticipates that we will work with a variety of partners to
build out and maintain the Hilo Platform, a social network offering crypto-asset enthusiasts
a consolidated source of co-teacher and market-sourced information. The first of these
partners, our launch partner, is Hilo Labs, Inc., with which the Foundation has entered into a
services agreement to build out the network, applications, and technical ecosystem. Hilo
Labs, Inc. comprises a group of highly respected developers and entrepreneurs who bring
deep knowledge and experience in gamification, data security, crypto-investment, platform
design, and social network development.

Hilo Platform
Description
— Overview —
At the heart of the Platform is a decentralized network for buyers and sellers of
crypto-assets, powered by ERC-20 smart contracts deployed by the Foundation on the
Ethereum network with units known as ​

tokens, or

an otherwise inaccessible information economy, enabling users to pay for access to

otherwise be available to them. In addition,

ILO facilitates user control of access by other
users to their watchlists, asset allocations, direct message responses, fantasy crypto
allocations, and private groups. Without the use of an ERC20 token, international exchange
and transaction fees would make such minute exchanges of value for granula...
