Crypto community: Start your engines! Simple Token announces 704games and Tesloop have joined for the ride
It’s quite the automotive Friday for Simple Token. We’re excited to announce today that 704Games, the video game publisher with NASCAR’s exclusive license to simulation-style console video games, and Tesloop, the world’s first sustainable mobility company providing city-to-city rides in Teslas, are joining Simple Token as partner companies to collaborate on new tokenization concepts.
Simple Token “OST” is a utility token, launched by the OpenST foundation, that enables any company to create, launch, and manage their own branded digital token economy, powered by Simple Token protocols and software. It allows companies and communities to create crypto tokens and build it into their ecosystems without many of the technical, legal, and regulatory risks and costs involved with going it alone.
We’re bringing crypto to mainstream and enabling apps and platforms to build communities that use their own token. The OpenST protocol is live and available today for use, and will transition to Ethereum mainnet on Tuesday 19 December coinciding with the launch of OpenST 0.9.1. Going forward, we are developing further enhancements into the OpenST protocol as well as investing in an ecosystem of developers and apps to build on OpenST to help any company to simply launch and manage their own branded token economy.

Tesloop joins Simple Token
Tesloop, the world’s first sustainable mobility company, is joining Simple Token as a partner company to collaborate together on new tokenization concepts. Tesloop offers mobility services in electric, semi-autonomous, connected vehicles, currently operating an expanding fleet of Tesla vehicles, in California. Over the last two years has become the world’s highest rated transportation company.
Tesloop was founded in June of 2015 and is the most rapidly growing mobility service in California. The company rapidly expanding its offerings and will in 2018 enable a single service to replace all consumer vehicle interactions including car ownership, ride hailing, black car and car rental services.
We believe blockchain-style decentralization and tokenization are important foundations for building the type transportation network that well all want and deserve. A new generation automobiles are emerging with fully digital architectures. Today this is exemplified by Tesla vehicles, which due to their ability to transmit digital telemetry in real-time, are well-suited tokenization including, smart contract scenarios. Simple Token’s model enables us to focus on our core business, on top of an industrial grade tokenization platform, and is as such ideal for companies like ours, that want to leverage the benefits of the blockchain as its capabilities evolve. The blockchain also has other transformative potential in the space. It can for example be utilized to create immutable records of vehicle usage in ways that have never been done before. We look forward to working with Simple Token to create new business models and consumer experiences around consumer mobility.
