Appics is a new social media platform that wants to reward users of its platform for their creativity and time. The team behind this project says that it has already convinced a huge number of celebrities and influencers to be part of its project. Additionally, it has over 120 global ambassadors in 20 nations. Amongst those confirmed to join the platform are Darin Olien the “superfood Hunter” and Barkt Baker the YouTube Comedian.
Beta Version Operational
Initially, the Appics platform was invite-only but now the beta version of the platform has been opened to early adopters and crypto enthusiasts. This year, the platform will launch to the public. It hopes that it can build a large community using its Android and iOS apps. This company has a goal of increasing crypto adoption globally as well as helping to acquaint users of social media with crypto and blockchain technology.
The Appics Platform
The Appics platform uses two blockchains, which bring together two of the largest cryptocurrency communities in the world: Steem and EOS. According to those behind the project, they hope to achieve this through various partnerships and their belief in communities.
On the Appics platform, users are rewarded when they post content of high quality. They also get a reward when they assign value to other users based on how popular their status updates, videos, and photos are. Appics has the goal of offering full transparency via blockchain technology. When a user sees something they like, they up-vote it and this gives it a boost on the platform.
In terms of advertising and categorizing large amounts of data on the platform, Appics will use 20 categories. This will include some popular themes such as food, music, and fashion. Users will be able to explore some of the latest trends through high-quality videos and pictures. It ensures brands can convey their message in a non-intrusive manner.
As part of the quality control, an expert with an established audience on another social media platform will head each category. These heads of categories will be in charge of ensuring that only content they think is of value will appear.
Brands and influencers on Appics
Appics is currently trying to get as many influencers as it can to sign up. It says that its platform will be a great place to share creative content that pushes the envelope. Additionally, it is working to change how users perceive ads on social media. For instance, it wants to provide an alternative to intrusive practices used by many social media giants. As a result, companies will have an opportunity to improve their brand image when they run ads in an environment built on trust.
The Appics project is located in Zug, which is popularly called Crypto Valley. The area is regulated hub for the development of crypto and blockchain companies creating innovative solutions for the masses. Appics recently launched its ticker symbol, APX, for its tokens. Users are invited to join the token swap on its official site.
