Let's create a pronunciation database and earn a share of its future value!

According to OurWorldinData.org, about 85% of the world’s population lives in extreme poverty. Here’s a quote, “Most of the world’s people live in poverty, with 85% of the world’s population living on less than $30 a day, two-thirds living on less than $10 a day, and one in ten people living on less than $1.90 a day. Each of these statistics takes into account price differences between countries to account for purchasing power in each country.”

So nearly 10% of the world’s population lives on an income of less than $1.90 per day. Poverty negatively impacts people’s mental health, causing anxiety, violence and depression. While the vast majority of the 8 billion people on our planet are poor, a handful of billionaires are hoarding more and more money. It is quite possible that in a few years we will see the world’s first trillionaire. Can you imagine a single person owning a hundred thousand billion dollars?

If you agree that we need a fairer distribution of the wealth we have collectively accumulated as a human race, you can join english.best and contribute to the largest pronunciation project in the world. We want to collect a database of audio files representing as many different languages as possible.

By the end of 2021, the first version of the platform will go online with the first audio recordings in English, Russian, and German. Other languages will be added continuously starting in 2022. For every contribution you make, you will receive points that will later be converted into blockchain-based tokens. So instead of just sharing your language recording for free, you earn a share of the future value of the platform you help create. The more people contribute, the higher the value of your contribution.
