Tasteem is a curating platform for the best restaurants you’ve experienced, through our weekly Contests with new themes. We set Contest themes, such as ‘A place to visit on a Wedding Anniversary’, ‘A great night out for a drink’, and Tasteemers enter our Contest by writing their own guide to places that match our themes. Contestants with the most upvotes will be in the top ranks of each Contest. The most popular review will win the Contest and the biggest prize.
But we want to pose a question here. Why should you write for Tasteem rather than the other numerous restaurant review services on platforms including Facebook or Yelp?
It’s because Tasteem is a new platform for restaurant reviews that differs from any other. Here’s what we envision for Tasteem’s future.
At Tasteem, you can see the whole of a poster’s guide to restaurants, as well as his/her history of votes and stars. An abuser of the system will be instantly exposed. While other restaurant platforms suffer from fake reviews and manipulated stars, Tasteem guides are transparent.
At Tasteem, we reward users who write their guides, and promise large rewards for the most popular ones. This motivates Tasteemers to write good posts, which in turn will draw more readers. More users will contribute to the value of Steem, and this means a larger reward for the same posts. Tasteem creates a virtuous cycle through its reward system.
The users’ curation
While other restaurant guide platforms have selected everything from themes to listings, Tasteem suggests themes, leaving the users to write their guides. Tasteemers get to curate the best restaurant reviews. Through a new feature to be added in the future, they will be able to suggest Contest themes.
