8th Continent Initial Coin Offering Ended. Thank you for your participation.
8th Continent Social Marketplace Opens Gates on 8 October!
Use your ECB Tokens to participate.
If 2017 was the year of concepts and whitepapers, 2018 shall be about live products and their adoption. Look for projects with an actual, real product and a clear roadmap! 8th Continent has both!
8th Continent is not a conceptual initiative, like many projects that propose an ICO! It is an already working system, based on a sophisticated and powerful Engine (including AI, robots, virtual servers, databases, admin. etc), tested and improved during a successful pilot in the past years. Therefore it does not claim to build something it might not build after the ICO. We already built the Marketplace that opens gates in China.
1. OVERCOME THE ZERO-SUM GAME PARADIGM
8th Continent does not want to reform the blockchain world, only use it. Take advantage of the decentralised, secure and provable transaction ledger.
Nevertheless the potential of 8th Continent seems to be huge as it aims to address the problems linked with standard stock and commodities exchanges: overcome the zero-sum game paradigm. A zero-sum game is where total losses subtracted from total gains will sum to zero, or in other words any quantifiable gains by one party are equal to the losses of another party. Such an environment can be discouraging for many who lose their money. On 8th Continent Social Marketplace digital products will be sponsored by brands paying a small advertising fee each time a digital product bearing their brand name is sold on the Market. The fee will be divided equally between users and operator. This way the sum of funds circulating on the Market will always be higher than the sum invested by the users! Users have the choice to sell unbranded products or become marketers selling branded digital products and make extra income.
2. STOP DIGITAL AD FRAUD
The new paradigm is a win-win model for four reasons:
- for the first time, brands can see where all their digital media dollars end up, and be sure that if they thought they had purchased ads from a given publisher, it really happened;
- brand names will be embedded in the products’ natural environment meeting advertisers satisfaction;
- unlike an ordinary advertisement, branded goods cannot be blocked because they will be listed on the market just like the other unbranded digital goods;
- users and operator make extra money.
Advertisers will participate on both exclusive and non-exclusive basis limited in time.
3. LINKING REAL AND VIRTUAL WORLDS
Real products will be introduced on 8th Continent Social Marketplace in 2019 linking real world to the virtual one.
Smart contracts are used on 8th Continent Stock Exchange, we plan to open late 2018, where digital companies reaching the 8th level will have the right to obtain extra liquidity from direct investors operating on 8th Continent, or from the outside, rewarding their efforts in creating a stable, healthy and trustworthy business.
Smart contracts also guarantee investment plans offered by 8C Equity Investment Trust.
China banned the ICOs but not the Blockchain: companies offering Blockchain-based useful solutions to the community are welcome and supported. Chinese Government is also developing its own cryptocurrency and Blockchain according to official announcements, and has been encouraging investment in the technology. Moreover the Government has identified blockchain a key growth area and started Blockchain standards creation. More and more funds and associations develop Blockchain-based systems in many different areas.
This is the reason why 8th Continent follows a strategy where it launches its cryptocurrency, the ECB, in countries where it is allowed to buy and possess such financial assets, and offers Chinese users of the Marketplace a registration in CNY local currency. The funds invested by the Chinese users are converted to ECB listed on major exchanges at current price, without circulating the cryptocurrency in China. Withdrawal of funds from 8th Continent Marketplace is possible for the Chinese users in CNY, and later in ECB if permitted.
Compliance with local authorities is a top priority for us and since 8th Continent is considered as a Game, no violation of laws are committed.
Initial Token Sale
Before the launch of 8th Continent Social Marketplace in China an ICO has been organized between May 18 - July 28 2018 ahead of listing of 8th Continent utility Tokens on major exchanges.
Please bare in mind that 8th Continent Token is not a registered security offering! 8th Continent Tokens are the utility tokens of 8th Continent Social Marketplace, hence payment function is ancillary to the utility function of the Token and Blockchain is not used for financial purposes. You may use 8th Continent Tokens purchased during the ICO directly on the Marketplace, or trade them on exchanges in case you decide not to participate in trading on the Marketplace.
We will not burn unsold Tokens. Tokens left from the ICO will be sold to the users of the Marketplace in the coming years.
Distributive Crowdsale of Tokens
8th Continent Social Marketplace opens gates in China soon. Registered users' investments, mainly in CNY, will be credited to their account on the Marketplace in 8th Continent Token. After 88 days and 88 transactions they are free to withdraw their funds in CNY at current value, or where it is permitted in ECB.
Maximum Supply of 8th Continent Tokens during the continuous Distributive Crowdsale for the years to come in addition to unsold Tokens during the ICO is 792M ECB, sold to users of the Marketplace directly or through our Partners.
You may buy ECB Tokens for BTC, ETH, CNY, USD, EUR, GBP and major Altcoins!
Strategic pricing available for $100k equivalent or above. Contact email@example.com with the allocation amount.
ECB Tokens are a good investment
for those who expect a substantial value increase secured namely by both:
1. the potential masses joining the Marketplace in China the years to come, as well as
2. the limited circulating supply that will always be equal to the amount of Tokens purchased by the new and existing users of the Marketplace.
Make your digital coins prosper, join the Initial Token Sale today and 8th Continent tomorrow!
Eighth Continent Bit - ECB
8th Continent Tokens will integrate the Bancor Protocol after the ICO, joining the decentralised liquidity network, in order to provide continuous liquidity to users of the 8th Continent Social Marketplace.
The Bancor Protocol is a standard for the creation of Smart Tokens™, cryptocurrencies with built-in convertibility directly through their smart contracts. Bancor utilizes an innovative token “connector” method to enable formulaic price calculation and continuous liquidity for all integrated tokens, without needing to match two parties in an exchange. Smart Tokens interconnect to form token liquidity networks, allowing user-generated cryptocurrencies to thrive.
