Scorum, a sports media platform powered by blockchain, has revealed a public token sale, set for the 14th of January, 2018, at 16:00 GMT, where it will offer Scorum Coin (SCR) tokens. The company has already closed a presale which raised $800K and it announced that whitelist applications are being accepted.
Scorum aims to boost sports media evolution and reward its community fairly with cryptocurrency when they share their passion for sports. The three core services are the sports optimized blogging platform with special editorial tools and BI visualisation instruments, AI-enabled statistics center, and commission-free betting exchange.
Timofey Mozgov, Alexander Hleb, Anna Sidorova, Alexandra Patskevich and other prominent athletes have already supported Scorum in its goal to transform sports media.
Vladislav Artemyev, CEO of Scorum, explained: “While sports media websites profit from 8.5 million monthly visits, their audience doesn’t get a cent. We decided to solve this problem by combining blockchain technology with a strong economic model. Our solution has three core principles: supporting cryptocurrency with real economy; rewarding all of the participants of the Scorum ecosystem; and distributing benefits in a clear and fair manner moderated by the user community.”
To finance further development of the platform and distribute tokens to future users, Scorum Coins (SCR) cryptocurrency totalling 20 million will be issued, 18.6 million of which will be allocated for the crowdsale. US citizens will be able to participate.
