SELFLLERY (YOU) ICO Review – ICO Token News
SELFLLERY is a multifunctional social platform that allows you to receive rewards in cryptocurrency for social activities related to publication and distribution of visual content. The product concept and its first versions were designed in early 2016. The SELFLLERY reward system uses ERC20 tokens built on Ethereum blockchain technology. SELFLLERY enables people to make their visual content truly rewarding. The purpose of SELFLLERY is to create an ecosystem that:
- Enables users to monetize their photos, videos and live streams in a gamified way;
- Supports charitable organizations and makes donations easy for users;
- Provides companies with easy-to-use and effective promotion tools that involve user photos;
- Expands the market of photo and video content for companies and news services, with a convenient search functionality;
- Integrates modern technologies and capabilities of blockchain into the digital photography market, increasing the transparency and security of its transactions.
Digital Photography Market Size Growth
Due to the surging popularity of smartphones with built-in cameras, the number of digital photos is growing exponentially each year. More than 1.2 trillion photos were taken in 2017, which is 600 billion more than in 2013, and 100 billion more than in 2016. Billions of people carry smartphones everywhere, record places and events around them, and instantly publish their pictures on the Internet. Such photos and video materials may possess artistic value or be in high demand by news companies, which strive to publish content on trending topics as quickly as possible. In addition, the quality of cameras in smartphones is continuously improving, allowing for the creation of content of ever higher quality.
SELFLLERY Project Description
YOU Token – The SELFLLERY economic model is based on an internal asset, the SELFLLERY money utility token (YOU token). The YOU token entitles its holders access to paid services on the SELFLLERY platform, to make purchases in the SELFLLERY marketplace and stock gallery, donate to charities, and make internal transfers and withdraw tokens to Ethereum wallets. YOU token transfer happens when users receive Likes (‘Proof-of-Like’). The platform incorporates a deflationary mechanism, according to which the number of Likes required to obtain one YOU token is increased every year relative to volume of users. Also, YOU token generation at TGE will be limited (See ‘Token Generating Event’).
Rating – Every user is included in the rating system. The Rating is an indicator of popularity, which is displayed on the user profile and affects the YOU token multiplier. The rating is influenced by the following factors: the total number of received likes, the number of comments and views of the user photos. Also, SELFLLERY automatically lists the top-rated photos in different categories. Moreover, every day the editorial team selects the best photos to include in the “Editor’s Choice” section. Every time the user photo is included in “Editor’s Choice”, or top-ratings, it raises the author’s rating.
Photoquests – SELFLLERY regularly creates photo quests – single- and multiplayer games for photographers. In a photoquest, users are tasked with making photos of certain objects, animals or scenes within a limited period of time. Photoquest may include several tasks with different levels of complexity. After completing all the tasks, the player can receive a prize in YOU tokens. In a multiplayer photoquest, several players can participate simultaneously.
Photo Contests – SELFLLERY provides advertisers with a marketing tool set that includes games and contests. The brand or company owner can launch a photo contest between users and specify custom conditions that would attract attention to the brand. Blockchain provides transparency of the contest as advertisers will use smart contract to specify the contest terms and rewards distribution. Participating in games and contests, users can get additional Likes, increase their photo ratings and receive rewards in YOU tokens. The reward amount is calculated in the following way: the more participants enter the contest, the larger the prize pool.
Token Generating Event
Token Generating Event (TGE) is an event when anyone can become the owner of YOU tokens. A token is a code element, which is used in the SELFLLERY platform operations to enable internal payments between its users. TGE will have two stages: pre-sale and main sale. At the pre-sale stage, YOU tokens are offered only to whitelisted buyers, whereas during the main sale tokens can be purchased by anyone. During pre-sale, early buyers can buy YOU tokens at a discount. For discounted YOU tokens, the minimum purchase amount is set at 10 ETH and ICO tokens are locked up for at least one month after the main sale ends. YOU Token buyers receive their tokens immediately when a ETH smart contract transaction in processed. Token rewards for bounty program members, advisors, project teams, as well as tokens for the reserve and reward funds are distributed only when the TGE is completed. The bounty program tokens are distributed to the program members on the TGE end date. Advisor tokens are locked in for one month from the TGE end date, while the project team tokens are locked in for six months. Tokens for the Reserve and Reward Funds will be sent to specified addresses on TGE end date. Addresses will be published on the SELFLLERY website one day before the TGE end date. These funds, together with YOU tokens collected during TGE, will be available for use by the SELFLLERY project team from the moment these Funds are set up, and the team will report on spending on their blog.
