Idea & Concept. Inspired by the first social network on a blockchain (Steemit), the founder team of APPICS realized the potential in the merge of a social media application with blockchain technology and a network of highly influential people.
TEAM RECRUITING. In a conference at the HQ of marketing agency WeCare4U, the art director, iOS and Android developer found belief in the concept and joined the team. Shortly after, a cooperation with Steemit.Inc, our blockchain team naturally evolved. In addition, an advisory team was appointed.
PROOF OF CONCEPT. In early 2017 the concept of APPICS was first written down in form of a white paper.
UI/UX APP DESIGN. What the user cares about, comes first. The simple, yet elegant design and natural colors of APPICS reflect the modern approach of the company and digital era that we live in.
DUBAI COOPERATION. The UAE is an emerging superpower in the blockchain technology world. For a global start the APPICS team appreciates the support from UAE marketing cooperations.
APP DEVELOPMENT. The first features of the APPICS application were implemented and tested. The development has been going on ever since and is constantly being optimized.
PROMOTIONAL FILM. The short film presented on the website is particularly important in order to introduce the mainstream world to the crypto-space. The APPICS team focused on highlighting the benefits of blockchain, rather than the technology itself.
WHITE PAPER RELEASE. The APPICS white paper was released together with the website and is meant to explain the concept in detail for anybody without prior crypto-knowledge. Since APPICS is a meta-token on an already existing blockchain, the technical white paper comes from our blockchain provider. For more information, please view the white paper.
WEBSITE LAUNCH – EVENT. The APPICS launch event took place in September. Included in the agenda: an introduction to blockchain technology, the history of APPICS and future plans.
DEVELOPMENT. After the official announcement of hard fork 21 by Steemit.Inc, APPICS will be one of the first meta-tokens to launch on the Steem blockchain. The development of SMT will be done by Steemit Inc. For further information, please check the white paper.
MARKETING PLAN. The first phase of the marketing plan will be rolled out. The team of APPICS will be open for interviews, attend events globally, and spread the word.
RECRUITING. APPICS is built on a network of influential people from the social media world. The first round of “category judges” will be appointed by the APPICS team, afterwards the community will be able to vote on them. For more information please check the white paper.
