Boomstarter.Network crowdfunding platform is now live. Our developers did a great job getting it up and running. Let’s see at what has been done to make blockchain-based crowdfunding a working product.
Use Boomstarter Coin tokens to support startups and buy rewards
Boomstarter Coins (BC) can be used to support startups on the platform. Just hit “Back with BC” in the project profile and the smart contract will receive the tokens for this startup.
Startups can also create rewards that can be bought with Boomstarter Coins. The tokens are accumulated on the startup’s special balance with an option to use them as payment for value-added services on the platform that promote and boost the startup’s crowdfunding campaign.
Startups have good reasons to pay for the platform’s services with tokens: they can get great discounts and save on their marketing expenses while expanding their campaign’s reach.
Integrating IOST tokens to supports startups you like
Integration and partnership with IOST ecosystem was a milestone for Boomstarter.Network. Now users of IOST, one of world’s busiest blockchains, can send their IOST tokens to support the entrepreneurs on Boomstarter.Network crowdfunding platform.
While IOST is operating its own, stand-alone blockchain, our developers did a great job studying all the ins and outs of IOST and integrating into it. Now each startup on the platform has a balance in IOST, overseen by smart contract. IOST blockchain has hundreds of thousands of active users around the world, ready to become both project authors and sponsors of startups.
Developing a billing system that works with several cryptocurrencies
Our developers have created and implemented one of the most important components of the crowdfunding platform — the billing system. It takes note of all payments made by users of the service. It also allows authors of projects to track which payments they received, and what rewards they sold.
These payments can be made in several cryptocurrencies across various blockchain networks. This is payment in Boomstarter Coin tokens, and major cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ether, IOST and others. The billing system also helps startups manage customer relationships on Boomstarter.Network.

Great on desktop and on mobile
Over 50% of traffic to Boomstarter.Network comes from mobile devices. So we decided the mobile version of the platform has to be as good as the desktop.
Designs and layouts received a lot of updates and polishing, until Boomstarter.Network started looking good on mobile as well. All features of the service are available literally at your fingertips.
