Decision-making in Mindplex will transition in phases to a democratic governance as the network matures. In the near future, we will provide details on starting dates and phases.
Members (users who have an active account on Mindplex and hold an MPX token) will have a say in some decision making processes, even in the early stage.
Here are the transition phases:
Phase 1 (following the initial token generation event)
- Major changes are to be determined by Mindplex Media Management
- Minor changes will be determined by vote of a 51% majority of Mindplex Members
Phase 2 (after the beta version is live)
- Major changes in Mindplex operations: agreement of the Mindplex Media Management plus a 51% majority of Mindplex Members’ votes
- Minor changes in Mindplex operations: a 51% majority of Mindplex Members votes
Phase 3 (after version 2.0)
- Major changes in Mindplex operations: a 65% supermajority of Mindplex Members votes
- Minor changes in Mindplex operations: a 51% majority of Mindplex Members votes
Phase 4 and onwards, full DAO (distributed autonomous organization).
- Major and minor changes in Mindplex operations: a 51% majority of Mindplex Members votes
Membership in Mindplex is simple :
1. Create an account on Mindplex and connect your wallet with our reputation system.
2. Own, at least, one MPX token. (Coming soon)
Deleting your account is easy. It’s a one-step move that you can access from your profile page. We have no deactivation or hibernation period.
Note: If you delete it, it means everything is gone forever! So please make sure to withdraw any MPX token you have on our MPX escrow before deleting your account. As stated above, since MPXR is a non-liquid and non-transferable token, all of your MPXR tokens will be burnt.
However, any content you publish will remain live on our website and will be displayed under your name — yep the contents are forever. Any comments you posted will also remain but those will be displayed under “deleted account”.
While it’s not required, we invite you to participate in our reputation system, which uses a token (MPXR). Your MPXR token is the key to our Reputation system. In the absence of MPXR, your interactions will not be measured and calculated. You will not be able to participate in our governance portal. You will not be able to access our content factory, or participate in the content request, job clamming, voting, and other activities.
You can only connect one wallet to access our reputation engine. You can do that from your profile page. Once you connect, the prompt will disappear, and you can forget it. (Don’t worry, you can even forget your wallet and you won’t lose your MPXR tokens; they are non transferable so they will always stay alive on our Reputation Escrow.) You can see the details here.
In cases where you want to use our liquid and transferable token (MPX), you can connect your wallet from your profile page, which will enable you to withdraw and deposit MPX from and to our MPX escrow. For these, you can use multiple wallets or the same wallet you have used for MPXR. But don’t put all your eggs in one wallet
… er, basket. 🙂

Mindplex does not track you. But we do measure and record behaviors on our website to enable use in our reputation system. (How we measure reputation on Mindplex and other websites that use our reputation engine is explained in detail here.) We do not reward reputation points based on who you are, we reward you based on what you do!
To achieve that, our reputation system observes some parameters (behaviors) during user’s interaction with content/other users/content creators. For example your association determines your bias! Most people give the ‘thumbs up’ interaction and share a content if it is published by someone they follow (if I like your posts, you will like mine! If I share your posts regardless of their merit, you will start following me or add me as your friend regardless of my merit).
We also track personal and environmental polarity.
Personal polarity: some people are optimists, so when they interact, they always give positive feedback (such as a thumbs-up emoticon and “great” in their comment). On the other hand, some people are pessimists, so when they interact they give negative feedback (such as a thumbs-down emoticon and “awful” in their comment).
Environmental polarity: some people, to protect their group, will not play fair. Such people will give an exaggerated negative feedback to any content if it criticizes or argues against their group’s beliefs. Even if they are consuming a well constructed, logically valid, and aesthetically pleasing content, they will never give a positive feedback.
Mindplex cannot be a merit-based decentralized platform if its AI-enhanced tools ignore such biases. So how do we track such behavior — without tracking your identity? Simple, via your interaction on our platform. But once you leave our site, we do not follow you; no cookies, or any known tracking system. We respect your privacy!

Mindplex is currently free. You can access all contents — no account required. If you choose to create an account, you will be able to interact with content and content creators and start building your reputation. When we introduce premium features, we’ll keep you advised.
“Mindplex” is a term Dr. Ben Goertzel originally introduced in 2003 to designate a mind that’s more unified than human society, but less unified than an individual human mind. “Mindplex” was later expanded in a paper on non-ordinary states of consciousness — including states where multiple people feel fused into a sort of mutually experiencing whole.
Mindplex is also an AI-meets-blockchain platform for experimenting with new tools that decentralize and democratize benevolent AI and AGI (artificial general intelligence).
These tools include:
Content Factory — a reputation-based (based on reader interactions) matchmaking engine that allows Mindplex community members to build their network and control the flow of content in a decentralized and democratic manner. Click here for more detail.
Reputation Engine, a complex-systems-theory-based reputation system for rewarding content creators and content consumers, using merit-based interaction with content.
- Interactive and collaborative content-creation tool— focused initially on creating interactive science-fiction that explores the potential implications and uses of AI in ranking, curating, and merging alternative storylines. For example, if ten people worked on a book that has ten chapters, and if each of these ten people wrote ten different chapters, there are 3,628,800 possible outputs as fully developed books.
- AI-generated memes and comics.
- Collaboration with SophiaDAO, another amazing SingularityNET ecosystem project, on immersive virtual-world scenarios related to Mindplex content.
- Leveraging TWIN Protocol technology, allowing users to create their own digital twins and allow others to experience their twins’ reactions to Mindplex content.
These major tools are described in detail in other pages of our FAQ.
“The mind is only free for those who own their online selves. Decentralized, democratized media need decentralized, democratized AI.” Dr. Ben Goertzel.
While Mindplex is currently managed by editors, it intends to become a fully decentralized media platform in the future. However, Mindplex will stand as a neutral platform. This means there will be an objective method of evaluating content submission from our contributors, who will be empowered to publish any well-researched, unbiased content regardless of our different views.
