What are we building?

  • Request from TikTok and Meta teams to create blockchain apps for influencers
  • Signed contract with TikTok Singapore
  • 6 years of working with influencers and authors and feedback from them
  • Inconvenience for web3 projects to pay in fiat for promo. And fiat companies in crypto.

We believe that creating a convenient tool for influencers and advertisers, for contracting, licensing and payments, can become a game changer in this industry. We also see how interest in licensing is growing, and this will soon become a big trend.

What makes us different from competitors?
The main difference is that we fit into the natural process when the advertiser turns to the author for content. One way or another, they perform all these actions, but in a different way or through agencies, which significantly increases the cost or duration of the process. In addition, not a single promo service has the ability to work in conjunction with web3 right now.

How much funding do we request? - $150,000
Grant Category: Channel/Brand Partnerships

Yes, our senior advisor and head of blockchain development Dan Mazurin has been into web3 for almost 6 years now and has made significant contributions to the crypto and - specifically - NEAR Protocol communities. After starting Apollo42, an NFT marketplace focused on social aspects, and creating Cosmos69 application allowing to showcase digital art and collectibles (using augmented reality) created on NEAR he got a lot of experience in managing and creating web3 products.
