PROOF OF CONCEPT AND MARKET
We have launched this campaign by publishing a satirical story, Midwestville, on May 1, 2015 (International Labor’s Day) with mixed receptions since the concept was novel. Midwestville has since gone viral however. A company in the US has taken similar approach with same concept and built a website with its own cryptocurrency in mid 2016. By November 2016, its capitalization was US$52 millions and ranked number eight among all cryptocurrencies (there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies on the market). The total capitalization of this company’s cryptocurrency has since dropped out of top 10 in recent months since they have not taken the subsequent moves that are contemplated in ORCCA’s business models.
WANTS AND NEEDS
Seeking government grant or angel funding to recruit a technical team to set up legal entity and to build a minimum viable product (MVP).

- Midwestville* (Episode 1) — a marketing plan for ORCCA.
Art was a farmer living with his wife and two children on his family farm in Midwestville in 1800s. He grew corns and sold to several general stores in St. Louis. He took his harvested corns to St. Louis with his wagons once a month. The trip took about three days one way if the weather was good. Store owners paid him about 15 dollars, few hams, two bags of flour and some household items. Art had everything he and his family needed. Life was good.
Then, the transcontinental railroad came to Midwestville. Art was leery about the railroad with all the disruptions of his neighborhood, digging and building. Ted, Art’s neighbor, was a learned man whom Art respected. According to Ted, the railroad company would take his corns to St. Louis for him in just five hours and the train could return the next day. He said this was the technical advancement of the modern way. Art should adapt to this new way of doing his business. Art finally decided to let the railroad company to transport his crops to St. Louis. The next day, he went with excitement to see the station master of the railroad company in Midwestville for his money. The railroad company people were nice and friendly but told him that the company didn’t owe him money since the railroad company didn’t consume his corns and Art had benefited from the convenient and quick service provided by the new technology. In all fairness, they did congratulate Art for his open-mindedness though. Art felt the explanation from the railroad company made sense but where were his fruits of labor, he wondered…
****What’s the answer to Art’s dilemma? Please follow the next episode of Midwestville…
