It is no secret that most ICO’s investments will end in money wasted. The President of XAPO recently said that, “90%+ of CoinMarketCap list will disappear eventually — might as well happen now.” The reason for this is simple; start-ups burn money and fail. This isn’t news, and it is time for ICO investors to wake up and take notice.

There is a lot of great talent in the blockchain space. Here at Spuul, we know what it takes to create a winning platform. We have been delivering content to our subscribers for years, and now we want to take Over-The-Top (OTT) media delivery to the next level. Our SPOKKZ token is a winner, and these four reasons will help you to spot other great ideas in the ICO market.

1. A Great Platform

Is the company you are investing in an idea more than a business?

Great ideas usually make money, and our successful OTT platform is evidence of a well thought out idea that delivers results. Many of the new projects that are seeking funds via an ICO simply aren’t mature, and may not create the returns that new investors are looking for. …

When a person has more than 2 million subscribers on their YouTube channel, it would be hard to call them “unpopular”. But gaining followers, and building up a funding base for new content are very different things. Major online media platforms like YouTube are great for distribution, but making money from a YouTube channel isn’t easy.

The thing is, even though platform like YouTube or Apple create a great way to deliver media to fans, they hardly give the creatives a fair cut of the advertising revenue that creates their yearly profits. Streaming services like Netflix are great platforms for established creatives, but they are very difficult to break into if you haven’t made a million-dollar movie yet.

Here at Spuul, we want to see family-friendly content get the funding it deserves. …

The media production mold is on the verge of breaking. Instead of being a one way street, today’s digital technology could make media production interactive. The SPOKKZ token is a forward-looking platform that builds on Spuul’s Over-The-Top (OTT) media distribution platform. Spuul has been successful in creating a OTT platform that delivers great content, now, SPOKKZ will take that functionality to the next level.

Media consumers aren’t passive, and they want to participate in the media creation process. In the classical media production model, viewers aren’t able to connect directly with the creatives that actually make a production happen. …

The first ever movie theatre devoted to motion pictures was opened in 1905 in Pennsylvania in the USA. It had less than 100 seats and cost 5 cents per show — around $1.50 in today’s money. So although not too expensive, it was very limited with regards to the number of people that could see a show.

Media production has been an exclusive club for a long time. Until the digital age, it was hard to compete with industry-controlling studios that designed the content, production and distribution of major media outlets. The digital age has the ability to change this dynamic, but some big changes need to take place.

Spuul built a wildly successful platform on the concept that giving people access to the media they want is a good idea. Today Spuul has a direct connection with millions across Asia, and their Over-The-Top (OTT) platform is both popular and profitable. Now they are coming to their demographic with a bold new idea that could influence the direction of media production for decades to come.

SPOKKZ is About More than Tokenization

Spuul has achieved their success by doing a lot more than just delivering content to their customers. The Bollywood-led media machine leaves numerous markets out of their model. …

The digital revolution brought the cost of movie production down. Today that trend has run its course, and the cost to produce quality video is creeping up again. Movie production studios play a big role in how much it costs to create a feature film, and when the movie does well, they soak up all the profits. This dynamic hurts smaller movie producers, and limits how much creatives can make from their work.

The SPOKKZ token is a lot more than a way to tokenize the Spuul platform. While it will function as a means of payment for Spuul’s services, it will also create new options for media production that shred costs, and reward creatives.

Movie studios count on making a big return on their productions. They own the rights to the work, and the creatives that make it possible rarely get a cut of the profits. SPOKKZ takes the idea of micro-finance and crowd funding to the next level, and lets creatives drop the cost of their productions down to practically nothing.

SPOKKZ Makes Positive Connections

Imagine being able to connect with a producer or director, and fund their project directly. No studio, no complex contracts, just an easy way to make the right things happen. …

If you are a movie producer, you know how difficult it can be to fund a project. Micro-finance and crowdfunding have helped independent producers, but there still isn’t a dedicated way for indy productions to access a reliable funding pool.

The SPOKKZ token could change all of that.

Spuul has been successful in building a popular OTT (Over-The-Top) media distribution service in Asia, and now their SPOKKZ token could be at the leading edge of a big shift in how media production gets done.

The SPOKKZ token will take advantage of the Spuul platform’s existing functionality, but it could also help Spuul grow into a new kind of marketplace for media. Instead of working solely as an on-demand source for media of all kinds, the SPOKKZ token could make Spuul a hotbed for media development.

SPOKKZ Can Get Productions Off the Ground

Let’s say a producer wants to make a movie, and distribute it over Spuul. Instead of looking to existing funding channels, they could use the SPOKKZ token to raise funds for their production. Once the project is complete, it is easy to keep track of how much money the media is gaining, because it is all distributed over a blockchain-based platform. People who backed the project can gain from its success, and the production company never had to leave the SPOKKZ ecosystem. …

There are a lot of ICOs out there right now. Many start-ups are looking for access to capital on good terms. The SPOKKZ token isn’t like buying into an ICO from a company that may, or may not make it in the real world.

Spuul has emerged as one of the leading media platforms in South East Asia, Middle East, India, USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and other global markets. Spuul already has an established business that is perfect for tokenization.

SPOKKZ Creates New Opportunities-Today

A big part of what SPOKKZ offers investors isn’t pay-for-play media content. Spuul has cultivated a diverse audience that loves media, but SPOKKZ could take their platform to a whole new level. Much is the same way that other blockchain-based platforms allow people to sell their excess processing power to distribute video over the internet, SPOKKZ lets media consumers connect directly with producers. …
