We all are battling with trust issues probably because of our past experiences or the experiences of others. Today a lot of persons find it very difficult to trust reviews on most sites especially ecommerce and hotel review sites because most of them are not real reviews.
When I was into importation of Jewelries, I saw a beautiful gold necklace on Aliexpress with wonderful reviews; everyone who reviewed the item gave it 5 stars from different countries. Going by the review, I made the order and when it got to my location I found out that I have been misled by the reviews, it was the opposite of what I saw on the site, it could be that those reviews where done by one person from one location just to attract customers. Assuming there was a way to verify the location data of the reviewers, it might have been easy for me to know if the reviews where real or fake. Trusting reviews on this particular site again will only happen if only I will be extremely sure with all certainty that the reviewer actually bought the product in question and he has a verifiable data location
A friend of mine also had a similar experience via a hotel review site; he had a conference in Accra Ghana, so he went online and after going through the reviews of a particular hotel he made his booking but to his greatest surprise, when he got to the hotel, he didn’t see those facilities that were mentioned in the reviews he saw online. These are some of the reasons why it is quite difficult for most persons to trust online reviews and because of this most review sites no longer have traffic.
Integrating these review sites with XYO NETWORK (a location technology that combines location innovation with the blockchain developments in introducing the first decentralized location verification system and making it possible for smart contracts to access the real world) will help in restoring trusts in the mind of the site visitors. With the XYO NETWORK, it will be possible for reviews to have verified location data. It will be easy for a customer or a visitor to a review sites to trust reviewers who have written a lot of reviews with verified data location.

It will also be easy to identify reviews written from the same location and by the same person.
A lot of genuine review sites will want to partner with the XYO NETWORK because they know that most people do not believe in online reviews again because of their experiences in the past. XYO NETWORK will help in restoring trust to hotel review sites.
