KickCity is an existing event platform on blockchain that focuses on community building and social interactions. Funded by angels and founders, KickCity has been bootstrapped for the past 1.5 years. The company has built revolutionary products for the event space and its currently generating revenue.
KickCity is building a decentralized reward-based event marketing protocol on blockchain. Having worked with many event organizers, it became obvious that their biggest problem is selling tickets or getting registration. KickCity is solving this problem by creating incentives. Rewarding anyone to promote events. This simply means that users can invite their friends and when their friends buy tickets, they earn Tokens (Cryptocurrency), while the user who bought ticket gets a kind of cash back — motivation to buy more tickets on KickCity platform. KCY tokens can be used to buy tickets on the platform and can also be converted to FIAT.
KickCity subsequently creates employment by giving everyone the opportunity to earn. Basically, KickCity shares marketing budget among users instead ofmining user-data like existing platforms (Facebook, Google CPA adds).
White Label and IntegrationsEdit
In order to facilitate quick expansion and easy adoption, KickCity will offer white label API technology for KCY integration to other event platforms. KickCity team is looking at a future where KCY is the universal event promotion token.
Team is building an infrastructure that other event platforms can connect to and drive more ticket sales by rewarding their users and improving social interaction at events.
