The one stop shop for crypto startups
Through our vast network of crypto savvy business professionals we are able to provide services in all areas relevant for a successful initial coin offering and beyond
Our main goal and expertise is to create your specific communication strategy based on your business model, your ideas and target groups. We plan and define your brand
We develop your brand stories and new ways of making cryptocurrency technologies visible, tangible and loud
We distribute content through various channels to gain powerful awareness. We spread your word and push content out there
This is why, we use tools like social listening or an sector based empathy mapping to find out, in which direction your brand should go to be recognized. We develop your specific route of communication and match it with your target group interests, needs and behavior. Including decisions for specific communication channels and their priority, your tonality, CI, brand awareness, specific key performance indicators and the way to reach them. This is your communication setup.
In this new sector we define our creativity as a big undiscovered playground we can conquer with you for the biggest awareness impact. That is why we develop concepts for your communication assets, copies, pictures, gifs, videos, social media formats, websites, events and cooperate material. We align these creative processes with a concrete design development, your communication strategy, communication trends and the needs of your target groups.
You know, to come up with a good idea is the easiest part, the harder part is to use the idea to the fullest. To do so, we develop an editorial calendar for your campaign considering the perfect spending of your media budget on your communication channels to get your potential investors and fans wherever they are, talk, think and get in touch with your special offer. This is what transforms ideas into success.
Community Building and Management
We find the right target groups and talk to them. We answer questions, moderate discussions and connect information with empathy
Networking and PR
We find and accelerate networks to communicate your brand. Strategic communication is your key to be heard
We put your technology and your ideas into the right design. By developing your aesthetic identity we build and define your brand
Moderation and Developing your communities is a fulltime job on it’s own. Therefore we build up your own communication team for the most important pre-ICO phase. Using the created content, talking with your developed tonality and guiding your community through your campaign calendar needs alignment of every marketing activity we can help you with.
In combination with your social media activity, this is your most powerful tool to get awareness. We use our successful networks, coordinate your press releases, your ICO tracker listings, your whitepaper distribution and the influencer connection you need to get reputation in this sector. And we manage to avoid contradictions between your more informal communication with your communities and your formal communication with press and networks.
Design is more than using photoshop to make your pictures pretty. Design as we understand it is useful to create a holistic view and feeling of your brand and everything you communicate from a like ad-formats to w like whitepaper appearance. This is what brings your idea to a brand.
Legal, Regulatory and Taxes
We know the possible legal implications that come along with different ICO structures and tokenomics models. Let us advise you on how to best avoid any regulatory problems in the future
We are investors ourselves and know a good tokenomics model must directly tie investor success to business success. We can help you tweak your mechanics so that both are flourishing together
We offer the best possible security around your ICO. Many projects lacking in that department were target of attacks, compromising millions upon millions in funds
The way a token is used in a product or project makes all the difference in how much functionality, or 'utility' a token has. Ask yourself the question if your project truly requires your token to operate. If the answer is no that means there can certainly be made improvements to the design of the token within the product. Tokens can provide many more benefits than just a unit of value exchange. These benefits not only translate into a better working product with more features, but also in having a higher chance of reaching your cap for the money raised in an ICO or TGE.
Where token utilty has to do with the functionality and role of the token inside a product, Tokenomics deals with the economics of the token itself. Think of all the steps that are taken by different actors on the platform and how each acquires, spends and accumulates tokens. Incentives are what drives the economy inside a product. Things like token cost, supply and demand and staking, the flow of money into and out of the product, amongst other things play a role.
When we optimise token utility and analyse and streamline the token economy your project will be much more valuable to investors, stakeholders and its users. By working together with your team and offering our consulting services you will be creating an awesome product and a succesful TGE.
It is imperative that any ICO, or TGE engages with regulation and does not ignore, or circumvent it. This includes ensuring tokens are sold to those jurisdictions it is legal to do so, automated verification of purchasers to ensure compliance with international Anti Money Laundering & Counter Terrorist Financing (“AML/CFT”) standards, accounting properly for cross-boarder transactions, utilising the best corporate vehicles for the individual project, protecting user-data and utilising said data.
As numerous ICO’s are now proving, it is possible to have a fully subscribed token sale when taking appropriate due diligence measures. Mistakes in this area carry enormous personal risk to you as unverified source of funds leads to significant money laundering and terrorist financing risks that is a criminal activity, punishable by a significant custodial sentence. Similarly, data misuse, leakage and/or breaches carries disproportionately extreme penalties. Ensuring that the contractual relationships between parties permit the transfer of token purchasers personal details is the best way to avoids potential fines of up to 5x turnover, or up to €20M, whichever is higher.
Ensuring the legal integrity of the ICO or TGE with international and domestic AML/CFT, data protection, corporate structuring and contractual requirements significantly reduces the risks of receiving the proceeds of crime / terrorism (a criminal offence, punishable by a custodial sentence), non-compliance with local company laws which will result in local authorities closing the Company, or Foundation, inability to obtain FIAT banking facilities to pay suppliers, staff etc., inability to obtain listing on premium cryptocurrency exchanges, and as has been happening recently, being delisted, vastly devaluing the tokens worth for holders.
ERC20 token security begins from contract creation, functions, purpose and auditability. This standard gives a platform for new projects and services to be natively supported. We've seen major disasters such as the DAO withdraw flaw and Parity multi-signature kill button dilemma with wide ranging and large economic effects.
Our team will give a full review of your contract code to ensure compliance, durability and carry out intended consequences automatically. Your team will strengthen consumer's confidence in your ICO or TGE by having an independent contract audit review. The community will thank you later when there are no hiccups or deviations from the presented TGE and/or operations contract code.
