Stratis’ turnkey ICO platform is easily deployable to Microsoft Azure, enabling an ICO to be securely provisioned in a matter of minutes. The platform enables Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) wallet integration, so coins are never stored on the web server.
ICO crowdfunding has established itself as a popular means of funding innovation within the blockchain community and beyond. However, today’s solutions are fragmented, often requiring manual development or the creation of complex smart contracts using unfamiliar computing languages on platforms such as Ethereum. Today’s fundraising solutions are also costly, with middlemen scraping a significant percentage of any funds raised in fees.
Stratis, a London-based company, is focused on making blockchain accessible and straightforward, has formally released its production-ready ICO Platform. The Stratis ICO platform provides a simple to use, turnkey solution for those wishing to undertake an ICO, including all tools needed to set-up a formal ICO in minutes.
Properties of the Stratis platform include:
- A highly customizable design, which enables you to ensure the ICO site conforms with your unique branding
- The ability to accept funds in USD, BTC, STRAT and 50+ additional cryptocurrencies via Changelly, a service that enables ICO contributors to pay in many digital currencies.
- Integration with Onfido’s ‘Know-Your-Customer’ (KYC) service that screens contributors against anti-money laundering watch-lists and undertakes document checks.
- Support for HD wallets, enabling issuers to collect funds securely. This means that funds collected during the ICO are not stored on the server itself.
The Stratis ICO Platform is provided free of charge, overcoming the high costs of existing crowd-funding solutions.
Chris Trew, CEO of Stratis Platform, commented: “With this platform, we’ve drastically improved the user experience for both ICO issuers and contributors. Today’s solutions tend to be either DIY, which comes with substantial security risks, or they charge a significant fee, but it doesn’t need to be this way.”
Sameer Misson, the CEO of Gluon, a well-established auto parts manufacturer and technology innovator, added: “The Stratis ICO platform is very simple to use, and we can specify the unique terms of sale and other customizations directly in the web interface. This means we’re free to focus on what really matters — building out our connected automotive marketplace.”
Chris Trew added, “At Stratis, we’re focused on making blockchain simple and accessible, which is why the core Stratis blockchain has been written completely from the ground up in the widely understood language of C# and the .NET framework. We want as many developers as possible to access the benefits of decentralized technology.”
Two existing companies have already announced their intention to use the Stratis ICO Platform. Gluon, a Silicon Valley-based automotive parts and software supplier, has announced they are currently pursuing regulatory approval for their token sale focused on creating an ‘Intelligent Connected Automotive Marketplace’. In addition, Beyond Global Trade, an established business launching an ICO focused on preventing counterfeit goods, will also use the Stratis ICO Platform and has also mentioned they are filing regulatory documentation.
