GastroAdvisor wants to help people around the world to easily find restaurants and venues that match their personal taste, making it easier for the gastronomic businesses to find new customers and to grow in the web market. The token of GastroAdvisor (FORK) will be used as a reward for the users who, by booking and reviewing, contribute to the GA community, while some rewards will be donated to the hospitality employers who will affiliate to GA, contributing to get proper information and accepting tokens at the counter. In addition to the search browser of the gastronomic venues, the first gastronomic social network (SocialFood) will be created. This will make it possible to discover, with just a couple of clicks, news and activities of all the users of the community.
GastroAdvisors first mission is to help restaurateurs and users to make their online experience better by introducing them to FORK token use and Cryptocurrencies. The problems in this sector are plenty, from the fake reviews spreading the web to the few restaurateurs and gastronomic oriented solutions online. Nowadays the main Cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin or Ethereum, are traded and
accepted by thousands of online websites but it is almost im possible to use them for daily purchases or real activities. Thousands of companies will be able to take advantage of the reward system putting their own business on the website, activating the online booking service and accepting BTC, ETH payment or FORK vouchers.
The difficulty of the blockchain system and Cryptocurrencies is their implementation in everyday life. We believe simplicity can be the solution. For this reason, our vision is to realize a blockchain and digital currency application, making the booking system easier and guarantee a unique review. The FORK token will have a concrete role and it will be the vehicle the users
will be able to book with, make use of bonuses and reviews. The users, by logging in on the platform to search and book a restaurant, will have access to the wallet (integrated) and through the tokens they will be able to make use of the platform utilities. We will build a platform to book, pay and recommend restaurants, which has never been used before, working alongside the users to provide high quality, clear and trustworthy informations.
1. Specialization in the Gastronomic Sector
There are over 15.000.000 gastronomic businesses in the world, including new restaurants opening and shutting everyday, 3.000.000 of them just in Europe.To sustain such an amount of information about the food business is very complex. Google Places and many other services have been trying to sustain this database over the years, but timesheet adjustments, name changes, businesses closings, wrong GPS positions and countless problems make it very hard for the database to guarantee trustworthy informations. However, average users find themselves lost when they visit a new country and seek restaurant recommendations because they are not familiar with local services. Currently, both Google Places and TripAdvisor offer restaurant search capabilities all
over the world, but these services are not specialized in the restaurant discovery industry.
2. Informations Overcharge
In nowadays societies, the internet instantly connects people, providing answers to nearly all questions, but when restaurant search services list hundreds of suggested places, the result could be dissatisfying due to the excessive amount of informations.This is particularly true in big cities, for example by searching “Pizza in Naples” you will get 1000 results, many of which will be disappointing! Many people have probably experienced to scroll through countless pages, ending up tired or disappointed being brought to a place which is not fulfilling the expectations. Having
tried every single page on the list for more details just to end up tired or being disappointed brought to a place which is not fulfilling your expectations.
3. Reviews/Rate Checks
Many restaurant search and review services evaluate user reviews based on a proprietary algorithm or a hidden formula, while others show only vague reviews or reviews from the “best” users. These systems cause indecision for people looking for restaurants and frustration for the restaurateurs “confused” by their rank or their average.
Both, the users and the restaurants, are often worried because of fake reviewers who can compromise the chart or their rate, releasing incorrect ratings or informations, not matching the reality. Until today many have tried to find the solution to have certified and truthful reviews but with poor results, thousands of business owners constantly fight against this phenomenon. A brief search on the web is enough to understand the problem of these unreliable systems, controlled and manipulated by the big internet lobbies.
1. A platform exclusively dedicated to Gastronomy
GastroAdvisor creates the first global platform specializing only in the gastronomic sector. Users from anywhere in the world can add new restaurants, update business informations, edit and add information. All the se changes and data will at first be analysed by an internal software which will verify truthful and fraudulent informations. Subsequently the data will be verified and validated by the GA team.With the purpose to provide better suggestions about restaurants to our users, the restaurant activity informations always have to be 100% precise. Restaurants change location, shut and open every day. The reality is that many, if not all, restaurant discovery services can not keep track of it all over the world alone, in real time. B y rewarding users for their contribute, updates and restaurant business approvals, through the FORK token reward system, we believe that we can create an ecosystem where informations are instantly updated.Through the GastroAdvisor platform, informations about gastronomic businesses will be constantly be monitored and updated in real time by users and restaurants. The GA platform will be able to grow and adapt depending on the market changes. This solves the problem of fake informations about restaurants and will allow us to expand our service all over the world.
2. A smart platform that learns from you
GastroAdvisor analyses restaurant ratings, the chronology of the views, likes, searches, followers and other actions of each user within the platform to learn about their tastes and match the results on SocialFood. The users actions are used by the artificial intelligence to provide feedback to every user about the restaurants and search results depending on personal preferences. GastroAdvisor’s goal is to free users from the information overcharge, supplied by other sites/search services, taking advantage of the artificial intelligence to help users to find the best restaurants considering their preferences in a quick and easy way. The results of the search are personalized for every user, this means that even if you look for the same kind of restaurant in the same area you might receive different results. Referring for example to the Pizza search in Naples, through GastroAdvisor’s platform, the user will still see the same 1000 venues, but the ones GA will consider/evaluate more suitable for the user will be shown first. When a user signs in for the first time on GastroAdvisor, suggestions will only be based on informations provided at the time of the sign in (zone and favorite restaurant). Recommendations will always adapt to be more specific, while GastroAdvisor learns about the users preferences.
3. Classic reviews, certified with blockchain (bronze, silver, gold) .
The GastroAdvisor team has studied simple and smart solutions that can be certain and clear. The GA platform allows to review a venue on three different levels of certification: For all of the three modes, the reviews will be based on individual ratings only, from 1 to 5 stars and 1 to 10 points for the kitchen, the environment and the service.
