  • Publication number: 20220222246
    Abstract: A distributed computing platform and method for creating actionable digital assets and tokens incorporating influence and outreach (“KNFT”). A KNFT application server may be configured to receive, over a distributed computing network from a remote computing node, a request for a new non-fungible token wherein the KNFT comprises a unique KNFT identifier, at least one metadata element, and least one social vector. A blockchain proxy server may be operatively connected to the KNFT application server and to a distributed blockchain ledger. Social actions may comprise user comment, connection, direct message, like, or favorable rating, and a change in ownership of the KNFT may be written to the social vector by a KNFT API. The social vector may comprise social vector data from at least one prior owner, and the KNFT may further comprise a circulation trail vector that incorporates the ownership history of the KNFT.
