Selfllery turns your camera action into cash with its cryptocurrency-powered photo-sharing social platform

Selfllery launches the social media platform for monetizing photos and videos, which offers a gamified visual content marketplace for individuals and advertisers, where every “like” is worth money and where charitable donation is a built-in feature

SINGAPORE — December 2017 — Selfllery is announcing the launch of its multifunctional photo-sharing social platform that rewards users in cryptocurrency for their contributions and activities. Every user who is active on Selfllery brings value to the platform and gets rewarded with Selfllery’s token, the YOU token. Selfllery is currently in the process of a presale, and users who sign up now will be eligible for a large token multiply factor when the project goes live. Selfllery combines blockchain technology with an social platform, so that every “like” a user gets is converted into cryptocurrency with Selfllery’s YOU token. Anyone can post pictures to Selfllery, and no prior knowledge of cryptocurrency or photography is needed. The platform uses blockchain technology to ensure transparency and security of the users’ transactions and rewards.

As smartphones rise in popularity and their cameras’ quality increases, many people use their smartphones to take pictures of the world around them, and the visual content they create has potential artistic value for news outlets and companies. Usually, making money from visual content is a complicated and lengthy process, with legal complications and a waiting time of 30-60 days until the revenues actually come in. With Selfllery’s Stock Photos, users get their reward immediately, with a visual content monetization platform based on smart contracts. The platform supports every kind of photo or image, and will in future support videos and live streams.

Selfllery’s top feature is the monetization of visual content, so every user who contributes content and gets likes is rewarded for their efforts. Selfllery’s YOU token is used as the platform’s virtual economy, with which users can make purchases from the Selfllery marketplace, sell their photos as stock photos, donate to charity, and pool money for competitions and photo quests. Using the YOU token, companies and advertisers can advertise content on the platform, or create smart contracts with bloggers or influencers in order to advertise on their profiles. This helps develop and drive the Selflery token economy.

Users are given a profile rating which is calculated according to the number of likes, comments, and views they receive. The token amount each user receives is calculated automatically based on their individual token multiplier, which is based on several indicators such as the number of likes received, the number of comments the user posted, participation in photo contests, positions in top ratings, and more.

With Selfllery, users take part in a multi-feature gamified social platform, where they:

  • Turn likes into money: Selfllery monetizes every like through a decentralized blockchain technology, so that each user gets tokens automatically after the likes appear under their photo.
  • Sell their photos and videos: Selfllery provides a multipurpose photo bank where users upload and sell their digital photos.
  • Spread goodness: Selfllery enables users to easily donate 5% or more of their token revenues to a charity or individual of their choice, and users who donate 100% of their revenues get a special badge to display. Selfllery donates 10% of its own revenues to various charities.
  • Advertise and promote content: Selfllery offers an AdTech platform based on smart contracts, that turns photoquests and photo contests into marketing tools.
  • Compete and win prizes: Participating in photoquest and photo contests increases users’ potential to get likes and receive rewards in YOU, and the more participants enter the contest, the larger the reward.
  • Buy and sell in a virtual marketplace: The Selfllery marketplace is where companies and e-sellers sell related products and services, which users buy using the YOU token.

1 YOU is equivalent to 0.001 ETH, and there is a minimum purchase amount of 0.1 ETH. Selfllery’s minimum goal is 10,000 ETH (soft cap), and its maximum goal is 55,000 ETH (hard cap).

“People like to look at pictures again and again, and we believe that has value,” says Vadim Onishchenko, founder and CEO of Selfllery. “From the rock art to modern ads, humans have placed value on art. Today’s social networks have mechanisms in place for users to make money from their online activity, but these mechanisms take time and skill to operate, and in the meantime, the corporations behind these networks are the ones making money from the users’ content. At Selfllery, we want to break this. We are introducing blockchain into the mechanism, and allowing anyone to be rewarded for their visual content, quickly and automatically.”

About

Founded in 2016, Selfllery is a social platform that allows users to post photos and other visual content, and receive rewards in cryptocurrency for their contributions to the platform. Selfllery was founded by Vadim Onishchenko, a professional photographer with experience in over 200 successful for-profit and non-profit photo projects.

Hyundai “goes crypto”: President Dae-Sun Chung announces plans for the company’s first token generation event

Zug, Switzerland, November, 2017—  HyundaiPay in cooperation with Hdac Technology AG, the multinational corporation based in Switzerland, announces today its plans to hold a TGE (Token Generation Event), aiming to bring blockchain technology to IoT payment platforms and secure transactions amongst connected devices. Hdac Technology and Hyundai, specifically HyundaiPay are always looking for new and innovative technology to incorporate into their products, and the joint TGE will protect IoT devices and their users from hacks, privacy invasion, and external threats, especially for payments and transactions. Hdac technology and Hyundai Pay will hold a TGE for the HDAC token on November 27th. The TGE will run on the Hdac blockchain, a separate entity apart from Bitcoin and Ethereum, which is maintained by the Hdac Technology group.

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) is making a visible and immediate impact on the tech industry these days, and will be worth $270 billion by 2020. Connected devices, homes, and vehicles can already be found in advanced countries, and as anyone with experience in the industry knows, the complexity of ensuring safe financial transactions, is close to impossible. Consider the security challenges involved in safely making an online payment on your phone in a public place. The vulnerability of security breaches is very high between connected devices. There is high-security risk for office buildings, large convention centers, or even a connection home that is transferring data constantly throughout the day.

A network of economies and payment platforms in the IoT have to integrate blockchain into their system in order to offer integrity and confidentially to their users, and to revoke the mystery behind this futuristic solution for security failures. Integration of blockchain technology will solve various issues in terms of security in IoT:

Interconnected security risks: IoT devices are all connected, if one node on this network becomes compromised, this puts the whole fabric at risk.

Different security protocols and requirements of each device: These differences make integration slow and difficult at times.

Many points of failure exist, which makes monitoring a wide network of IoT devices at best difficult, at worst impossible.

Developments in blockchain technology enable greater transparency and trust, especially regarding payments, and can help secure all those self-driving cars, smart home devices, and even your FitBit that have flooded the industry in recent years.

The goal of Hyundai BS&C and Hdac Technology’s TGE is to support the continuing development of the Hdac blockchain, as blockchain technology has the ability to greatly enhance the security of the IoT. Hdac, which runs separately from the Ethereum and Bitcoin protocols, is based on hybrid blockchain technology, which offers a wider range of capabilities to ensure reliable connection and secured processing between devices. Hyundai will work to apply this pioneering platform to hardware payments applications and to enhance both their security and reliability.

Blockchain technology is the only way to achieve the level of security that Hdac technology and HyundaiPay aim to achieve. The Hdac blockchain addresses security issues by providing immutable information on top of smart contracts. It makes the automated security and transparency principles application over the platform, in a possible way that was previously impossible to guarantee.

“We are thrilled to hold a TGE in order to bring security and transparency to IoT devices,” said  Dae-Sun Chung, Founder of Hdac Technology AG, “With more IoT devices hitting the market daily, our lives become more connected. Although there are many benefits to this, we open ourselves to great security risks. Blockchain technology, and special the Hdac blockchain, is the best way to leverage trust, transparency, and security on IoT.”

Adi Ben-Ari

BABB represents the future of banking: offering everyone across the world access to a UK bank account, easily and instantly using their smartphone app. BABB is built on blockchain technology and uses biometrics to create digital identities for all participants and connect people across the globe. BABB’s goal is to reach every underbanked person in the world, totalling over 50% of global population, to catapult them into a new era of total economic participation.

Based on a private permissioned blockchain implementation of a distributed ledger using smart contracts technology, the BABB platform uses biometrics to deliver slick and secure UX, using AI/ML and data analytics to optimise match-making and control risk. The platform gives customers greater control and lowers the cost of banking for all, with P2P to decentralise some financial transactions while providing other banking services at a low cost, making micro-transactions economical.

“We are delighted to welcome Jorge and Adi to the BABB team,” said Averroes. “As we approach our token sale and the next stage of our journey in the development of the world’s first blockchain-based bank account, technical leadership has never been more important.
