Cultural Places Provides The Culture Industry With Cutting Edge Crypto Tools

It estimated that ticketing companies charge on average 12 – 15% of the total ticket price, with some charging up to 30%.

For cultural institutions and event organisers those are vital funds that they missed out on. This is particularly true of many second tier cultural institutions which are often working with very tight budgets.

Cultural Places wants to change this by provided a more cost effective way for cultural institutes and events to offer tickets to their customers.

Using a decentralised platform built on the blockchain Cultural places would provide a ticketing platform which lets these institutions and event organisers keep more of the sales from tickets. At the same time they will be able to offer tickets at less expensive prices by saving on the ticketing company cut.

This is in fact only one of the unique offerings from Cultural Places. Cultural Places is providing a complete ecosystem for the cultural industry.

Along with ticketing, Cultural institutions and organisers will be able to use the platform in order to crowdfund from patrons and other supporters.

Fairgrounds ICO Provides Profit Sharing In Crypto Raffle

Ever dreamed of having a stake in a winning lottery?

Well thanks to a new Ethereum based platform for games of chance called Fairgrounds, that could soon be a real possibility.

Here’s how it works…

Profit Sharing With Fairgrounds Token

Each of the Fairgrounds game has a small but consistent advantage to the house. The funds that are gained from this house advantage will be transferred to a profit sharing contract.

The smart ground then allocates the funds that are collected in the contract to owners of the Fairgrounds Token.

Fairgrounds Token holders will be able to withdraw their profit share any time during the month. If they do not withdraw the funds, then they are rolled over to the next months distribution. All of this can be done through the Fairgrounds website.

Organic Growth Through Referrals

The Fairground platform has a referral system which rewards not only the people who make the referral, but those who are referred as well.

How it works is that users each have their own unique referral link. They can then pass this referral link onto to friends and family. If that person they refers then plays a Fairgrounds game that person receives a 10% bonus.

What’s more the user that made the original referral also receives a 10% bonus. As a consequence there is a strong incentive to refer other players to the network.

Fairgrounds Token Sale

Fairground Tokens are being offered in a token sale from February 7th 2018 to April 11th 2018.

The initial price of the Fairgrounds Token (FGD) will be set at 1 ETH is equal to 10,000 FGD.

Each week the exchange rate falls, so in week two the exchange rate is 1 ETH equals 9,000 FGD. In week three 1 ETH equals 8,000 FGD.

As a consequence there is a strong incentive to contribute to the token sale earlier on. In total 50 million FGD tokens will be made available for sale.

You can participate in the FGD token sale by visiting:

A Guide to Knowledge.io: The Knowledge Based Adtech Platform

Knowledge.io is an exciting new ad tech platform which uses the power of the blockchain to incentivise users to share their knowledge. This platform rewards users for offering their knowledge in a specific area and then uses this to enable advertisers to precisely target their marketing messages. Here are four reasons why the Knowledge.io token sale is one you may want to pay close attention to.

#1 Targeting based on knowledge of the user

Knowledge is an advertising platform which is unique amongst its competitors. The majority of advertising platforms target users based on demographic data or their consumption of specific content. Knowledge.io adds another layer which enables targeting based on how much that users knows about that particular topic. This level of knowledge signifies where that particular user sits within the knowledge funnel. Based on this love the advertiser can create advertising messaging which is specific for them.

Example – imagine someone who is purchasing a new computer. Some users may have detailed information about the workings of a computer and will base their buying decision primarily on the hardware specs of the computer. What’s more their knowledge score might indicate that they have the correct level of knowledge to understand the value of those specs. An advertisers could therefore craft and advertising message which appeals specifically to that level of knowledge. Another user might have very limited knowledge about computers. Therefore that user needs a more top level message and may be more responsive to other messaging such as price & branding.

#2 Elimination of fraud

One of the biggest problems facing the online advertising industry is that is fraud. A huge percentage of ad spend is wasted because of fraud and the use of bots. The Knowledge.io platform would help to eliminate this problem in a number of different ways. Firstly, statistical outliers could be easily identified within the Knowledge.io platform. Secondly, any partner that help to use bots in order to earn KNW tokens would be at risk.

Knowledge

#3 Identity verification

Users will have their identity verified when they spend their tokens in the Knowledge.io marketplace. Verification will can also occur when users want to view their token balance or to sell their tokens on an exchange. This will provide another data layer and help to reduce the incidence of fraud on the platform.

#4 Rewards for contributing

Users are directly rewarded for contributing to the the Knowledge.io platform. When a user contributes knowledge they are rewarded with KNW tokens. One of the things that is unique about the Knowledge.io platform is that the tokens are not mined by cryptographic hashing but rather by solving questions. These question the form the basis of the users knowledge score. They can also be minded by using the apps and websites which are associated with the platform.

Overview of the KNW Token Sale

KNW tokens are an ERC-20 compliant token created on the Ethereum blockchain. They will be distributed in a token sale. The key details of the token sale are as follows:

KNW token rate: $1.00 USD in USD, BTC or ETH
Presale dates: January 15th to February 12th 2018
Main sale dates: February 12th to April 8th 2018
