Why Blockchain Matters for Reviews

Why Blockchain Matters For Reviews

Ever since the creation of Bitcoin, blockchain has been becoming extremely important to the Internet space. Just for the simple fact of how it works. If you’re not familiar with blockchain technology then think of it this way. A blockchain is what its name suggests, a chain of blocks. A decentralized ledger where no central point controls it. For example, when you send money from one wallet to another, it’s permanently stored on the blockchain with transactional proof. It’s impossible to cheat the blockchain or change anything that is previously stored. This makes the case for real online reviews that much more viable.

Now that you understand a little about blockchain, lets take a look at how Rebusify uses it to confirm real trusted reviews from real customers using the Rebusify Confidence System (RCS). The RCS is a patent pending system that uses a custom Smart Contract built on the Ethereum blockchain that records only real transactions from real customers on real merchants. A customer comes to a merchant website, they buy something by going through the merchants checkout process. Once the checkout process is completed, the customer navigates to the Review Transactions part of transaction. Here they have 30 days to review their transaction by giving 1 through 5 stars as well as leaving a text review. This review is then hashed (Stored) on the blockchain and given a unique transaction ID. That transaction along with the details of the review are then ported here to Rebusify.com where it’s available for search. The search results display the review along with a link to the Ethereum blockchain where you can view the hashed review which will match the review on Rebusify.com. This is the Rebusify Confidence System in action.

With the RCS, you can guarantee that all reviews you see here on Rebusify are 100% guaranteed to be real for they are coming straight from the merchant via their checkout system and not created by a competitor or disgruntled employee.

So why do other sites like TrustPilot, SiteJabber, PissedConsumer and others all allow anyone to review merchants? Because it’s about money. Those other review sites allow anyone to post a comment to a merchant for the more comments that get posted the more exposure the review site gets and that equals money. So, it’s all about money. Those sites don’t care about the merchants, they only care about the money and when told that reviews are fake from competitors they flat out refuse to remove the review.

Allowing non-customers to review companies is wrong for the obvious reasons. Overseas competitors, ex-employees looking to destroy a company’s reputation and anyone with an ax to grind can leave reviews on those sites and that is the exact reason why the Rebusify Confidence System was created. To stop destroying the reputation of honorable merchants.
