Introducing a better way for Blockchain Startups to get Advisors and early traction.

Crowdstride is a platform that will enables Blockchain related startups to tie in to thousands of Advisors spread around the world.

Introduction

Lynda is hard at work sitting on the balcony of her condo, but from time to time she pauses to take a deep breath and enjoy the view. Her life is going well, she found a way to apply her exceptional Blockchain and Technology expertise to advise dozens of startups across the world. She doesn’t just love it; she can express he intellectual skills and her creativity in a way that feels very rewarding to her. Plus she earns a good living from it because the startups she’s involved in value her Advices and rewards her generously.

Lynda is having a good time. Why wouldn’t you? CrowdStride will soon allow you to do so!

How will it work?

We’re hard at work on the development of Crowdstride and excited to let the idea in the light, here’s how we see it working:

  1. Startups dump the idea of having just a few Advisors in exchange of huge amounts and instead, at the early phases of their developement, they subscribe to CrowdStride and fill in the roadmap templates provided.
  2. Each projects will be reviewed by the Crowdstride foundation. A legal entity which will be based in Canada and which will have a constitution and the mandate of maintaining the CrowdStride blockchain.
  3. The results of theses reviews will be made public and the approved projects will have to integrate their project with the Crowdstride API and commit legally to distribute part of their initial offering through the Crowdstride platform.
  4. Once a project is approved and integrated, Advisors on the platform (Acoin owners) receive a notification and are invited to vote or offer suggestions on the specific steps within the roadmap of the new startup.
  5. Both Startups and Advisors see the steps and voting results using an easy and comprehensive interface on CrowdStride.com or on the CrowdStride mobile application. (Android)
  6. The startup picks the directions they finally choose using the Crowdstride interface. Advisors who’s votes or suggestions are picked receive an increase in value to their Acoins on the CrowdStride Blockchain.
  7. The startup’s ICO or service launch is clear to all Advisors and they can help spread the word about projects they are passionate about.
  8. The CrowdStride API, Crowdstride Blockchain re-distributes the rewards to Advisors based on their score. The rewards comes in whatever form that the startup raised based on the initial agreement. (Tokens from the startup, Bitcoins, Ether, Altcoins, etc..)
  9. CrowdStride charges small transaction fees on Acoins (1–3%)
  10. Everybody profits!

How will the A Coin work?

The first 500 coins will be given to people who subscribe for email updates at crowdstride.com before we launch the Acoin and will be part of a Beta version which we will release soon.

After the beta version we are going to announce the supply, initial pricing and utility of the coin along with a detailed whitepaper on the project and when A coins will be available. The A coin will be used to access the platform and be able to vote or suggest to startups.

As for the technical part, we’re currently developing our own protocol using an existing open source one but we are also exploring the option of going with a hybrid architecture which would use an existing blockchain to power up CrowdStride.
