Ronny Boesing of Danish exchange CCEDK and Justin Fondriest, founder of Beyond Bitcoin, have partnered on a cryptocurrency tipping platform The platform, called Sharebits.io, will make tipping capability available to uses who want to distribute cryptocurrency tokens as part of their marketing and social media strategies.
The Sharebot is built on second-generation cryptocurrency platform Bitshares, and currently supports Twitter, Reddit and URL links to deliver tokens. An open-source API has also be introduced with the hope that the list of platforms will expand.
Users can also create digital tokens by utilizing OpenLedger’s decentralized exchange and “blockchain creation” platform. Both ShareBits and user created tokens can also be exchanged for Bitcoin, BitShares, and variousother cryptocurrencies, as well as fiat such as USD and EUR through OpenLedger’s decentralized exchange platform.
The partners behind ShareBits hope to attract the millennial demographic, highly tech-savvy and often difficult to reach through conventional advertising.
“They are typically looking for a more authentic experience, for meaningful connection. If you gain their trust they can be fiercely loyal to your brand, but they won’t give you something for nothing. Those questions of value and trust are something we are directly addressing with blockchain technology.”
Underpinned by MIT-licensed BitShares Graphene technology, Boesing and Fondriest believes that Sharebot opens opportunities by making it incredibly easy to send and receive cryptographically secured tokens. The possible use-cases stretch far beyond conventional consumer marketing.
‘It would take just three seconds for any of the world’s humanitarian organisations– WFP, CARE, OXFAM, IFRC, AAH, and so on – to transfer money across the globe using Twitter or other social media. Supporters could donate to needy parties after a mudslide or earthquake, with well over 90% of value reaching its intended destination, something unheard of in with our present infrastructure.’
Based on Bitshares technology, CCDEK’s decentralized exchange platform OpenLedger enables users to distribute blockchain based tokens through the ShareBits platform or exchange them for Bitcoin, BitShares, and other cryptocurrencies, as well as fiat such as USD and EUR.
