Origami Network Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Alexandre Duquenoy lays bare the details of the project and ICO to us;
Hello Alex, can you briefly introduce us to the Orgami Network project?
Origami Network is an all-in-one decentralized marketplace platform that solves several existing problems related to online marketplace development and maintenance, escrow payments, and reviews.
The Origami Network has a working product with several customers already on board benefiting from its technology.
The Origami Network is based on three self-sufficient platforms:
- Origami Marketplace
- Origami Payment, and
- Origami Review.
These complementary platforms can be used in a modularized fashion or together.
The Origami Network is the only Blockchain-Powered global solution that builds decentralized online marketplaces faster and easier than current models allow, while also utilizing blockchain based escrow payments and improving review systems.
The result is faster, easier, cheaper, and more reliable marketplace experiences for both consumer and business owner
What inspired the need to create a decentralized online market place?
Today’s evolving blockchain technology allows companies to run marketplaces (B2C or B2B) for faster and cheaper than ever. But there are still problems with the current atmosphere.
For one, the speed and cost by which online marketplaces are developed and run can be improved.
Secondly, at this moment in time escrow payments are still very expensive and far from accepting crypto-currency as payments.
Lastly, the review process for online marketplaces contain several major flaws that must be addressed before marketplaces can be truly decentralized.
What is the current market size for your industry and how much of this market share do you envisage to control in 3 years?
Sales on online marketplaces cross $1 trillion in 2016 yet they still have to solve a lot of problem inherent to centralized marketplaces.
The largely unregulated nature of reviews, when combined with their importance to success of a marketplace, makes this area ripe for abuse from both buyers and sellers. Origami Review will solve this major problem with a blockchain-powered review system. The same goes for escrow payments.
We are aiming to become the leading solution of decentralized marketplaces around the world.
What unique advantages does the Ethereum blockchain offer that other blockchains cannot offer your project?
The Ehtereum blockchain provides us scalability and security. The power to build Dapp on top on the Ethereum blockchain is vital to build Origami Network on top of it.
How soon will your tokens be tradable on exchanges and any hints of which exchanges will be trading?
The ORI tokens are locked up for a period of 7 days after the sale ends and they will be tradable the 30th March. We cannot talk about exchanges yet. We will communicate with the community as soon as we can.
Briefly run us through the process of your token sale.
Origami Network Token sale runs through two distinct phases
A pre-sale from the 13th February to the 20th February with a cap of 1 000 ETH. The minimum contribution is 0.5ETH and the maximum is 50Eth per wallet.
Then we have a Crowd-sale during one month from the 23rd February to the 23rd March. The cap of the crowd-sale is 4 000 ETH with a minimum of 0.1Eth and a maximum of 500 ETH per wallet.
