What is the Purpose

  1. Inspired by the Dutch non profit organization https://www.vox- pop.org, the team from www.trustos.org is presenting tChat. This is a platform which gives participants the opportunity to be matched and chat with someone who has a complete opposite opinion. After choosing one of the 4 political preferences below you will be matched with someone of a different political preference. Based on some the statements (themes) which are currently causing polarization in our society, both participants can have an anonymous chat and debate.

  2. Your privacy is our highest priority. Therefore, there is no need to give us any personal data at all. There is no need to register – you can use a pseudonym. Your opinion cannot be traced to any person. Although tChat is being set up in connection to trustos.org, there is no need to signup or to register with www.trustos.org. However, if you chose the option to register and login with www.trustos.org you can be rewarded from your chat partner with trustos – the currency of trust - at the end of the chat.

  3. The idea of tChat is to challenge opinion bubbles in our society which drive the increasing polarization, but instead to focus on the common good even among different opinions, to build bridges and to find strength in diversity.

  4. tChat is set up to feed into the idea of ‘trust as a currency’ – as outlined on www.trustos.org. However tChat does function completely independent and the login or signup with www.trustos.org is completely optional.

How it Works

  1. First, you have the option to sign up with trustos.org or if you are already a member to login in trustos.org before you chose one of the 4 political preferences to start tChat. Otherwise, skip this option and move on and click on one of the 4 political preferences as seen in below to start tChat. You have the option to signup or to login with trustos.org each time you join tChat.

  2. Then you have to put in your name or pseudonym into the window popping up and agree with the terms and conditions and the privacy policy /cookies. You can disable the cookies in your browser if you prefer.

  3. You will then see how many participants are currently in the chat room which will determine how long it will last to be matched randomly with a chat partner.

  4. As soon as you are matched one of the statements for debate will appear. You can choose on a between ‘agree’ and ‘disagree’. If your chat partner will have the same opinion you can change the statement for debate. The chat can start any time.

  5. You can exit the chat at any time and the chat data including the IPO address will be deleted – no data will be stored.

  6. The participants ought to self police each other – tChat does not tolerate scolding, threatening, spamming, advertising or any other misuse. Any misuse can be flagged by the participants with the consequence that the participant’s IPO address might be banned for 1 month from the platform.

  7. If you are a member of the www.trustos.org community and you decide to log in as a member, your name of choosing in the chat will be marked with the trustos symbol. At the end of the chat you could be rewarded trustos by your chat partner. If your chat partner also a trustos member the trustos algorithm will apply – otherwise you will receive a fixed number of 500 trustos.
