Stratis’ turnkey ICO platform easily deployable to Microsoft Azure, enabling an ICO to be securely provisioned in a matter of minutes.
ICO crowd funding has established itself as a popular means of funding innovation within the blockchain community and beyond. However, today’s solutions are fragmented, often requiring manual development or the creation of complex smart contracts using unfamiliar computing languages on platforms such as Ethereum. Today’s fundraising solutions are also costly, with middlemen scraping a significant percentage of any funds raised in fees.
Stratis, a London-based company focused on making blockchain simple and accessible, has formally released its production-ready ICO Platform. The Stratis ICO platform provides a simple to use, turnkey solution for those wishing to undertake an ICO, including all tools needed to set-up a formal ICO in minutes.
Properties of the Stratis platform include:
- A highly customizable design, which enables you to ensure the ICO site conforms with your unique branding
- The ability to accept funds in USD, BTC, STRAT and 50+ additional cryptocurrencies via Changelly, a service that enables ICO contributors to pay in many digital currencies.
- Integration with Onfido’s ‘Know-Your-Customer’ (KYC) service that screens contributors against anti-money laundering watch-lists and undertakes document checks.
- Support for HD wallets, enabling issuers to collect funds securely. This means that funds collected during the ICO are not stored on the server itself.
- The Stratis ICO Platform is provided free of charge, overcoming the high costs of existing crowd-funding solutions.
Chris Trew, CEO of Stratis Platform, commented: “With this platform we’ve drastically improved the user experience for both ICO issuers and contributors. Today’s solutions tend to be either DIY, which comes with substantial security risks, or they charge a significant fee, but it doesn’t need to be this way.”
Two existing companies have already announced their intention to use the Stratis ICO Platform. Gluon, a Silicon Valley based automotive parts and software supplier, has announced they are currently pursuing regulatory approval for their token sale focused on creating an ‘Intelligent Connected Automotive Marketplace’. In addition, Beyond Global Trade, an established business launching an ICO focused on preventing counterfeit goods, will also use the Stratis ICO Platform and has also mentioned they are filing regulatory documentation.
