History

Pre-blockchain Origins

Everipedia was founded by Sam Kazemian and Theodor Forselius at UCLA in December 2014. The website was created as a side project out of Kazemian's dorm room. 

Originally, Everipedia started with a mission to build a more modern and inclusive version of Wikipedia. Sam and Theodor were inspired by Y Combinator's co-founder Paul Graham's blog post published in 2008 entitled "Startup Ideas We'd Like to Fund." In his list of ideas, he called for "more open alternatives to Wikipedia": 

In April 2015, Travis Moore joined Everipedia's team as a co-founder and their CTO. In September 2017, Suchet Dhindsa joined as Everipedia's COO.

Blockchain

On December 6, 2017, Everipedia announced that they were building "the first encyclopedia on the blockchain." Using EOS blockchain technology, they stated they are working on a cryptocurrency token called IQ. On the same day, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger joined the team serving as Everipedia's Chief Information Officer until he launched the non-profit Knowledge Standards Foundation in 2019. The whitepaper later described Everipedia as a decentralized database that creates an incentivized peer-to-peer network (known as the Everipedia Network) for submitting, curating, and governing a database of encyclopedia articles.

On July 12, 2018, Everipedia moved onto the EOS blockchain and launched the IQ token airdropping 51% of the IQ token supply to EOS holders. Everipedia Co-Founder and CTO Travis Moore explained that by doing an airdrop Everipedia would ensure the widest possible distribution of IQ tokens with every EOS holder receiving tokens. 

"The airdrop will play a significant role in helping Everipedia accomplish as wide of a distribution as possible for IQ tokens."

Funding

Seed Funding

In July 2015, Everipedia received seed funding from Mucker Capital. Shortly after, Everipedia received its first outside investment from angel investor Kami Parsa. It also received funds from multiple other angel investors that year, including David Segura and David Petersen, the co-founder and CEO of Buildzoom.

In 2016, Everipedia received $130,000 on Wefunder, a crowdfunding service that connects start-ups with investors online.

Series A

On February 8, 2018, Everipedia announced that they had received $30 million of funding from a group of strategic investors in a Series A led by Galaxy Digital.
