[Revised] Thanks to our P-Rep’s feedback, we’d like to revise this proposal to be clear about our ideas.
We’re Wechoice team from the ICON Hackathon competition. The competition was a great opportunity for us to bring out our idea to the world and we’d like to thank you for all.
With that much motivation, we’d like to have a chance to take Wechoice go-live by submitting for a CPS funding.

You are a person looking for ways to be compensated for your creative content, or an activist looking to support a social cause, a celebrity trying to prove their philanthropic activities or an organization holding a charity event needing contributions from the public in an open and transparent way.
Whatever your choice, Wechoice is the network for you!
Wechoice is a Social Media Network to establish a social media presence, connect with friends, and express yourself freely and creatively.
- Customize personal profiles
- Become content creators by creating posts of varying contents such as work, arts, and charity activities to request donations
- Communicate via threads, comments and direct messaging
- Invite others to be the co-creators of content or events for collaborations and increasing reputation.
Wechoice is an easy-to-use crypto crowdfunding interface for sending and receiving donations of cryptocurrency:
- Users on WeChoice create a unique profile link for donations that is able to be linked and shared anywhere
- Users on Wechoice also can receive donations from the platform itself by their posts, activities and overall engagement.
Wechoice is more than a donation platform
In recent years many donation platforms have emerged; Gofundme, Kickstarter, Qgiv.
Wechoice improves upon the standard donation platform by:
1. Payment Options
Wechoice offers a wide range of options for crypto donations and crowdfunding. Including, but not limited to, IRC-2 tokens and other tokens from other chains in ICON’s BTP ecosystem.
2. Focus on Influencers and Reputation
There is a growing movement for online social activism. By building reputation, social activists can receive continuous trust and support from their followers across a number social causes.
3. Transparency For Philanthropy
All the transactions are transparent from Wechoice’s history itself and blockchain explores.
Wechoice is a Bridge between Charity and Blockchain technology.
Born through recent scandals faced by Vietnamese celebrities and their questionable claims of philanthropy, Wechoice was designed by the team to track and keep logs of donation efforts by individual persons and agencies.
- Celebrity charity donations can be verified and tracked.
- Fans of celebrities can verify and track their own donations to celebrities (building fandom reputation).
- Users can keep a close eye on the use of the donations through tracker.
- Users can verify and feel secure about supporting other activists through the reputation system a user builds from their trackable history of donations.
Users can create their own profile page to express themselves by registering an account via canpass, then link to their ICON wallet. Through this linked profile, they may receive donations to their wallet, given to them by other users for their content with a convenient UX/UI experience.
Anonymous or Unregistered Users
Anyone with a connected ICON wallet (ICONex/ Hana) can start to donate directly without registration to show their interest and receive a badge to recognize their donation. Users can use this opportunity to donate anonymously if that is their choice.
1. The Social Media Network of Donations
To solve these issues, we would like to build Wechoice to be much like ‘The Social Media Network of Donations’ through reputation system, transparency and taking advantage of Blockchain technology. This is the website for social influencers to share and grow their causes.
2. Fandom Culture
This is the website for fans to directly contribute to their idols.
3. Aid Where Fiat Is Not Enough
This is the website where users all around the world can donate to help war torn countries via crypto. We believe the recent efforts of blockchains like ICON Foundation donating over 1 million ICX to aid Ukraine during their fight for freedom is proof of the need for a more formal dedicated platform of this nature. And proof that there is a market for this application helping in countries who need humanitarian aid during times where fiat may not be the most convenient method of donating.
Simplified donation process
The donation process will be as simple as the transfer token process from wallet to wallet, without the barriers of location and complicated registration process.
Benefit for ICON Network and What The Community Can Expect
- By use of ICON-based cryptocurrencies, ICON network will receive all transaction activities on the network.
- With the expansion of the network in the future, ICON Influencers/KOLs can get donations from their fans through their promotion events using the app.
- Additionally, the team will focus on creating a more convenient and promoted UI/UX for anyone to get/give donations.
BTP ecosystem token support
In the future, with the support of BTP, we hope to expand Wechoice to use other IRC-2 tokens as well as the tokens of the BTP ecosystem partner chains.
Wechoice will have a reward pool for referral activities to expand the network after the beta version is released. Users who sign up and have other users sign up as referrals will receive compensation for their effort in promoting the website.
