Sweet Eva, a digital angel who guarantees sweet dreams, is now leading Arcona’s Token Sale campaign
(New York — Nov. X) — Sweet Angel Eva, an augmented reality (AR) character designed for children, was recently promoted to lead Arcona’s Token Sale campaign for a new project that will enable developers to deposit virtual objects anywhere in the world. Her responsibilities will include interfacing with contributors and the crypto community, as well as representing Arcona at a variety of virtual events.
Sweet Eva was created in 2016 at the request of the main investor in Piligrim XXI, the company behind Arcona.
“The investor’s children were afraid to sleep by themselves, so he told them there was a guardian angel in their bedroom,” said Ilya Korguzalov, co-founder of Piligrim XXI. “But his kids didn’t believe him because they couldn’t see the angel. That’s why we created Sweet Eva, a beautiful angel who gives children the most wonderful dreams.”
When the time came to select the face for Arcona’s Token Sale campaign, Eva was the obvious choice because of her wonderful essence and buoyant personality. Before her most recent promotion, Eva spent most of her time in a fluffy cloud. She could fly around the room, laugh when a child tickles her and fill any space with magical butterflies.
Arcona integrates the virtual and real worlds, providing a link between an augmented reality layer called the Digital Land and natural landmarks on the Earth’s surface. The project will allow users to position and manage content remotely. Arcona’s Token Sale is scheduled to take place from January 25 — February 25 where contributors will be able to acquire pieces of Digital Land starting at just $1 per square meter.
The first digitized zones will appear next year in New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Beijing, Rome, Mexico City, St. Petersburg, Istanbul and Barcelona. In an ambitious expansion and development roadmap, the company plans cover the Earth’s surface with that a layer of AR by 2019.
Piligrim XXI, Arcona’s creator, has now designed eight AR parks in France, Italy, Russia, Latvia, Estonia and Bulgaria. Through Arcona, Piligrim XXI will make its unique remote positioning algorithms and other technologies available to owners of the AR layer free of charge.
Arcona is also announcing adoption of the Bancor Protocol™ to equip the upcoming token with continuous liquidity and formulaic pricing. Arcona will dedicate up to 5% of its circulating token supply to a BNT connector which will allow its holders to convert the Arcona Token to every token in the Bancor Network™, including BNT, ETH and a long list of others. The activation will take place in the week following the successful conclusion of the Token Sale.
The partnership will guarantee the continuous liquidity of Arcona, the project’s internal currency, regardless of trade volume, and will also reduce its volatility, thanks to predictable pricing according to the Bancor Formula. Bancor’s Token Generation Event took place in June 2017, attracting more than $150 million for the protocol project.
“Just because Eva is an angel doesn’t mean she can’t do the job,” said Korguzalov. “We believe that someone who can work well with kids can also be a tremendous success in business. She has already proven herself, so our next step will be developing the AI to give Eva the ability to make her own executive decisions.”
