There are 2 ways you can get a free ride, or a free place to stay, etc:
1. Do not offer a Gratitude Tip when requesting for help
If you’re requesting for help in a heavily-populated location, you will get offers from people with your Dynamic Beep Network Of Helpers (DBN) willing to help you out. Since you didn’t offer any tip, it’s safe to say they will help you out without any expectation of a reward.
2. Offer a Gratitude Tip but accept help from those who don’t want it
Some helpers may simply decline your Gratitude Tip, as they’re not helping you for money. Again, in a heavily-populated area, you’re likely to get helpers who will decline your tip. The video above shows this scenario.
The BeepBeep Nation app is ready and will be launched within weeks after the ICO is over. Get ready for it.
In an app where help can be provided by people near you who are not necessarily people you know (much like Uber drivers are not necessarily people you know), it’s of utmost importance that you’re as safe as possible.
BeepBeep Nation is a community app, fuelled by the EMINENT token. Each member of the community will be doing his part to ensure that requestors and helpers using the app are real people (not bots). It also comes with a rating system built in that is used to provide more information about any particular user from other users’ interactions with them in the past.
The “Beep Rank” is a green bar below a user’s profile name. The wider the bar, the more thumbs up ratings a user has from many more people that he has helped recently, among other factors.
A Beep Rank ranges from 0 (no rating) to 10 (best rating). The higher the score, the more reliable/helpful the user is, based on the above factors. For certain types of help like getting a ride, place to stay or tour guide where you’re meeting up in person, the Beep Rank can assist you in making a decision on who to accept help from, or offer help to.
Another tool you can use is the Chat function. Simply chat with the person once you’ve accepted his offer to help with a single tap of the Chat button, and before you’ve made your way to him or he has made his way to you. If the chat isn’t going in the direction you want, simply cancel the help offer and you don’t have to meet up with him.
You can also ask to take a “wefie” (basically a selfie with more than just you in the photo – we call it a “beepie”) with the requestor or helper when you do meet up. Ask them for permission to do so. If they agree, simply snap a photo of the 2 of you in the same frame, and upload it to both your profile and his in the BeepBeep Nation app. This way there will be records of which user has helped another user that can be seen in each user’s profile. If he does not agree to take a beepie with you, you may want to consider not going ahead with the request for help either as the requestor or the helper.
There are other ways that can be used to increase the safety of users of the BeepBeep Nation app, and more ways will be included as we progress.
It can do what many other proven apps can do – but it can do them cheaper, or free, or better.
BeepBeep Nation, fuelled by the EMINENT token, does what other proven apps do in one single, convenient app that can also be a good alternative to all of them.
This is possible because we have created the “Location Beep” concept that comprises the following components that all combine beautifully to not only provide you with the help you need when you need it, but also make the world a better place:
You’ll send a beep to a location you specify. It’s usually where you currently are. You can then use your location to ask for help in the form of a ride, or perhaps to let you know if anyone is coming out of a parking spot for you to take over, or for any type of help you can think of. However, you can also specify a location you’re not in, like a city in another country. This is useful if you’re planning to be in that city soon where you may need a local to help show you around like a tour guide, or to provide you with a place to stay, or to update you with information in that location, among many other possibilities.
The respondents to your beep for help will be real people as you’ll need to meet up with the potential helpers. This not only makes the BeepBeep Nation app a true social app as it requires effort from both parties to meet up to resolve a problem, it also means you’ll be making new friends every time, thus broadening your network quickly and easily.
Dynamic Beep Network Of Helpers
BeepBeep Nation does not work on the “friends”, “followers” or “connections” principle. There’s no need for you to ask anyone to be your friend, have them follow you, or indicate your connections with them. Everyone with the BeepBeep Nation app installed on their smartphones is in your Network of Helpers, if they’re within a 1-5 mile radius of the location you’re in, or in the location you’ve specified.
This means that your Dynamic Beep Network Of Helpers (DBN) can be different people, depending on the location you specify, at the time you’re beeping for help. Your DBN will provide you with lots of value in ways not possible before the BeepBeep Nation app is created.
You’ll be rendered the help you need by real people, who you meet on a face-to-face basis. The help provided can also be free to the requestor, which is something other service apps can’t provide, since you’re getting help from people wanting to help you, not from service providers who provide their service only in return for monetary compensation, in the amount set by them.
If you’re beeping for information (which doesn’t require a meet up), like “which is the best sushi restaurant in New York?”, you’ll get accurate results because they’re provided to you by real people located in New York at the time you’re sending your beep. They’re not historical like those served by search engines or review sites. You can tally up the real-time responses by real people in the area to see how many of them recommend the same places, for an idea of whether their responses are reliable. However, you can beep a question to the same location at different times and get different, but still accurate, responses. As an example – eg. “Is the Starbucks at Madison Avenue open now?”. Depending on the time of the day and/or day of the week, both a yes or no answer can still be the right response to the same question, and they can be different from search engine results since the latter provides historical answers compiled by computers, whereas BeepBeep Nation provides real-time, on-the-spot responses by real people who can verify for you whether that Starbucks outlet is actually open now, or is still under renovation as it has been for weeks, or has closed due to a fire recently.
There are more, but the above should get you thinking about how the BeepBeep Nation app can provide you with help and accurate information no other app can provide in one single place.
The EMINENT (EMN) token is created for BeepBeep Nation users to use to send out beeps within the BeepBeep Nation app. In other words, the EMN token fuels the BeepBeep Nation app. In addition, EMN can also be used for the requestor to pay his helper a Gratitude Tip, if the requestor has offered it, thus eliminating the need for the requestor to carry cash with him.
