IceBreakerAR is a fresh young company. They are looking towards the future of social networking, and plan on combining multiple technologies to achieve their goal. The company plans on utilizing traditional operating systems such as IOS and Android to host their software. Augmented reality will be used to increase the appeal and utility, while blockchain technology is used to secure and tokenize the platform.
Although most people have used a networking app of some sort, none are quite like IceBreakerAR. With so many offerings providing the same services, they recognized the need to stand apart. They also recognized that the problem current services are trying to solve, has not been solved.
IceBreakerAR is quite simply a secure platform that will make the process of ‘breaking the ice,’ conversationally speaking, easier. This will be achieved through using a platform that is not only visually appealing, but easily monetized while promoting continued interactions. These interactions may take place between varieties of people, with a variety of interests.
The two largest categories of interaction that IceBreakerAR is geared towards are dating and networking. Through the creation of a personal profile, users will gain the ability to interact with others sharing the same interests, or others looking for skills that you may offer or require.
Beyond dating and networking, the platform can be used simply for like-minded groups. Have a favourite local band? Create a group that is populated by individuals that share your obsession.
This all sounds great, but it doesn’t really sound blockchain related does it? The incorporation of blockchain into the platform is a form of not only future-proofing, but of recognizing potential security threats. In recent years the world has seen many high-profile data thefts in varying industries. IceBreakerAR is setting out from day 1 to ensure that they do not become one of those companies. They understand the need to properly secure their user’s data.
Aside from utilizing the security that blockchain offers, the company will also be tokenizing their platform. Through the use of the ICE token, IceBreakerAR will be able to monetize their system and create a lucrative and engaging platform. Users will be able to use these tokens for in app purchases. In addition, they will be rewarded tokens for completing predesignated actions within the platform. In addition to creating a tokenized ecosystem, IceBreakerAR will form partnerships with retailers. Those that come on board will benefit from increased businesses driven to them through the app. It will be driven through AR advertisements when searched for by the user. Upon making a purchase at a participating retailer, the customer receives a discount and IceBreakerAR receives a stipend. The retailer is happy for new business, the user is happy because of the discount, and IceBreakerAR is happy for a stipend they’ve received.
IceBreakerAR is a hybrid. It is LinkedIn, it is Tinder, and it is Discord. It is potentially the next step in social networking.
To help break down the barriers intended, IceBreakerAR is hosting an upcoming ICO. The ICO is taking place with the intention of a fair initial distribution of tokens, along with generating funds to ensure products development proceeds unhindered.
