Let’s face it, cryptocurrency is becoming a mainstream trend, increasingly adopted by societies and businesses around the globe. And you are probably missing out on a chance to own the most accessible cryptocurrency, IZX, laying literally under your feet. Wait, what? Well, IZX token is the only cryptocurrency easily picked up from the ground using a smartphone. Izetex company, the creator of IZX token concept, developed a mobile application using the technology of augmented reality. Sounds like Pokémon Go for crypto and Matrix fans? Because it kind of is. This is the story of a game, where you are looking for IZX tokens in your surroundings and hunting them. You gotta catch ’em all indeed.
Decentral Magazine met with Mr. Alexander Gryanznov, co-founder, business development officer and responsible for the marketing of IZETEX during the “Blockchain Solutions 2017” forum in Barcelona. The interview was informative and passionating, and we tried to sum it up below.
IZX project at a glance
IZX provides a monetization platform for independent developers of games with elements of augmented or virtual reality. The advertising provider may choose promotional events games and their developers get royalties. In fact, IZX is based on a blockchain platform: its code is open source and has no geographical boundaries.
For advertisers using Izetex product, it’s an effective loyalty program platform. It allows them to capture a targeted audience and convert them from virtual interest to stores, services, and marketplaces.
By creating a branded appearance of the token, advertisers can place it in specific geo-locations and target based on audience interests, location, and preferences. Players, on the other end of the deal, collect the token during the game and may exchange it for a “reward”, defined by advertisers, say a discount or a prize.
Izetex uses the technologies of data analysis and machine learning to segment audience by multiple criteria. Izetex generates revenue from the “freemium” business model, where advertisers may run a limited campaign for free, while to scale they should buy tokens. The first presentation of the product was at Blockchain conference in Innopolis, Russia on 29 August 2017. The participants at the conference took a try ar the game in the conference hall, Innopolis streets and even villages nearby, with the real prizes and rewards. That was plenty fun and profit for several hundreds of the first players of IZX game.
