Trusted Reviews On The Blockchain
You’re probably wondering why blockchain would have anything to do with an online review system. The fact is, blockchain can be used to store much more than Bitcoin transactions. In reality, blockchains can be used to store any piece of information that needs to be protected from manipulation while still being universally accessible.
Trustalyze’s patent pending system uses blockchain technology in the following way. Suppose a WooCommerce merchant downloads and installs the WooCommerce Review Extension. Every time a customer makes a purchase on the merchant’s website, the customer has 30 days to review the transaction with a 1 through 5 star rating. The customer can also add their comments to the review. That review and its content is recorded sent to the our blockchain and is given a transaction ID. That unique ID is recorded on Trustalyze.com using our via API. Finally, this unique ID gets placed on the merchant’s company profile page.
Placing these reviews on the merchant’s profile page allows them to be indexed by Google and other search engines. This gives merchants greater visibility to showcase their products and awesome customer service. It also allows customers to immediately see these reviews before they make their purchase. Placing these reviews on the blockchain ensures that the merchant cannot modify a review that they don’t like. Because the information placed on the Trustalyze blockchains is publicly accessible, it allows anyone to audit the reviews they see for authenticity.
The key to this system is that it regulates who can leave reviews about your business. Only customers that complete a purchase on the merchant’s website are allowed to leave a review. With fake reviews being so prevalent, customers have trouble distinguishing what’s real from fake. Customers can rest assured that the reviews they see on Trustalyze.com and a merchant’s website were written by real customers, not by competitors, disgruntled employees, or internet trolls.
