What exactly is Pieme?
A food app? social platform or, well, Pieme is a platform that links people to authentic local food, this can be in restaurants or peoples homes, share news in form of posts that are called pies inform of text or media as well connecting with friends and loved ones in both private and group chats, now available on Google play, App store and Web.
The idea of Pieme is not to create a new Uber eats, Jumia food or Deliveroo database but to enhance the narrative database, which is radically different from the ones found on the internet that big data hoarders manipulate. Pieme system allows us to engage the next generation in defining the future state of our communities, which influences and perpetuates our cultures.
Getting the world to realize the traditional local dishes and cultural diversities of our people and tribes elucidates the bigger problem of conglomerates dominating the landscape. We are creating awareness and sustaining cultural influences driven away by capitalism through decentralized food delivery services.
Pieme a local food system rewards users for using the decentralized platform to incentivize use, encourages local chefs in small villages to open their restaurants from their homes.
The currency used on Pieme is Rate and Review (RRN) crypto currency, which creates a micro-economy where people act as individual local ethnographers to their communities by increasing awareness of each village’s traditional dishes.
In Nigeria alone, there are over five hundred languages and three hundred and seventy one tribes (Source), each tribe within those groups have their local food, Uganda which is in the Eastern part of Africa has forty one living languages and tribes with local dishes too, however the influx of western food chains is diluting the culinary connection to the local food
Pieme focuses on being a decentralized platform connecting people to authentic local dishes prepared by the locals themselves without middle players.
