Blackbox Connect #19 (August 14th-25th)

Kuende is a gamified marketplace aimed at Generation Z. The platform has strong social features that reward its users for their everyday activity and generated content. Kuende aims to provide an experience similar to using Facebook, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Instagram, and Spotify all within one application, but with a fresh new UX approach. By participating, the user earns virtual coins (Kpoints & Kcoins) based on their activities and interactions with other users. The user can then utilize coins in order to unlock/buy different opportunities, such as customising their profile and overall experience, movie or concert tickets, or meeting with a favourite artist. They can also be exchanged through cryptocurrency markets.
