100ASA is an online photo-sharing platform based in London, United Kingdom. It was co-founded by Massimiliano Peluso and Andrea Turri on June 3, 2020.
100ASA is an online platform that provides photographers with a transparent and reputation-based curation process. As of December 2020, the site has around 10K registered users. The site is currently self-funded, but plans are in motion to seek external investments in Q2 2021.
100ASA used latest technologies to ensure a seamless user experience and is the only photo sharing website providing instant translation for comments users add to photos in their own language. The site makes use of AI-technology to measure the popularity index of a photo. Unlike most other website, 100ASA doesn’t use a ‘linear’ approach to calculate popularity. Instead, it uses a non-disclosed self-learning code that adapts and learns from previous experiences.
The site uses ‘reputation’ to measure the trust of the community in the user. As the site yearns to build a platform curated by a community of photographers, the reputation points are granted based on positive user behaviour, such as publishing photos, writing comments, and curating other photographers.
100ASA utilizes a unique token technology to avoid the platform from being overrun by low-quality images and malicious users. Users earn the right to showcase their work on the site through the use of a virtual currency. These can be used to perform certain actions on the platform, such as uploading photos or carrying out other curation-related actions.
