— Barbara Soltyinsinka, CEO
ICO Alert: We recently spoke at the beginning of November and since then you’ve completed a pre-ICO! How did the pre-ICO go, and in summary for those who are not familiar with indaHash, can you explain what it is, and what the team aims to accomplish?
indaHash: The award-winning app which connects over 300,000 influencers from 70 markets with global brands introduces the indaHash Coin. Our mission is to tokenize the entire influencer industry to solve major issues between brands, influencers and their audiences. Our cryptoeconomics implies circulation of the indaHash Coin among all of these groups and creates a new type of relationship and added value.
ICO Alert: How does the indaHash token (IDH) function within the platform and why is it needed?
indaHash: The goal of our ICO is to create a universal cryptocurrency structure available to social media influencers, their audiences and brands to revolutionize the functionality of the multi-billion dollar influencer industry. The introduction of the indaHash Coin act as the foundation of the ecosystem that will enable influencers to create their own cryptocurrencies, which will radically change the way influencer business is conducted worldwide. indaHash token works between three users: brands, influencers and social media followers.
Brands use indaHash Coin to reward influencers for marketing campaigns. When influencers receive indaHash Coin, they have the possibility to exchange it for a brand’s products and receive discounts when shopping, along with early access to novelties. Influencers can also create their own tokens and use them to increase their audience engagement by rewards and gamification.
Influencers’ audience can use collected tokens and exchange them for exclusive actions that the influencers prepare for their community. For example, customized prizes signed by the influencer, closed meetings and social activities.
More details on how these parties will benefit from the token can be viewed on our Whitepaper.
Further, due to cooperation with the biggest brands in the world, indaHash has been dependent on long payment periods. Hence, the payment for influencers for completed campaigns takes anywhere from 30–60 days to settle. By introducing indaHash Coin we would like to abolish the long wait time and implement immediate transfers after completing a task. This will bring increased benefits for the influencers and, as a result, speed up the adaptation of indaHash Coin.
Because of the regional limitations, indaHash is not able to cooperate with thousands of influencers around the world. We want to reduce these limitations by providing boundless token transfers for all influencers globally. This will ultimately allow influencers in more countries around the world to cooperate with indaHash.
As of yet, indaHash has had to collect a lot of personal information from influencers such as addresses, bank account numbers, etc. to settle payments. It has often been seen as an inconvenience for the influencers who care about their privacy. We believe that transfers in indaHash Coin will abolish this inconvenience and open indaHash for new users. After receiving indaHash Coins, influencers can use it to further activity or exchange it on cryptocurrency exchanges. The group of potential merchants will also include indaHash itself that will obtain indaHash Coins to cooperate with influencers for future campaigns.
ICO Alert: You have plans to integrate with exchanges as the next milestone on your roadmap. Have any announcements been made yet, or are you ready to make them now? (If not, any big names in planning?)
indaHash: We will publish all information regarding exchanges after the ICO.
ICO Alert: There are over 300,000 influencers on the indaHash platform. Who are the largest influencers that indaHash has signed on who will be able to help bring a network effect to the platform encouraging other influencers to take part?
indaHash: We are mid-tier and micro influencers company. Our goal is to conduct campaigns engaging hundreds of medium size influencers and not the biggest stars, who have their own managers and agencies in terms of branded campaigns.
ICO Alert: What does 4400+ contributors to the presale mean to the project’s success and the team itself? Do you have a goal number of contributors for the ICO?
indaHash: Barbara Soltysinska, co-founder of indaHash.com commented, “This pre-ICO represents a new and exciting chapter in the indaHash story. More than 4,400 people from around the world have chosen to join the journey we began less than two years ago. As a result, we managed to achieve 100% of our pre-ICO target in just a few days. This is a testament to the team who has worked diligently for months to ensure we had the best possible structure in place and we are delighted by the feedback from the community on our idea of tokenizing the influencer industry. Now we are anticipating our main ICO and look forward to implementing our cryptoeconomic model into the indaHash app in 2018.”
Our primary goal is not financial or about having the highest number of contributors, but to create a new and revolutionary ecosystem for influencers and brands based on the blockchain. To make it happen we must obtain scale and liquidity in terms of our tokens so influencers will be able to use them. Our vision is to give them a working solution with all the benefits already implemented.
We treat this as a big success because we’ve managed to achieve the minimum goal of the whole ICO process during the pre-ICO. In terms of the complete ICO process we expect at least 10,000 people to take part.
