PR: SaaS Company Axpire – for a Better Future

aXpire is an ERP SaaS company offering a suite of products to increase efficiency of service spend and general profit margins. We recently underwent a token sale where we reached our $20m hardcap in only 89 hours. As we relaunch our website, we think now is an opportune time to outline the future of aXpire.

To give a high level background, we tend to think of our company as four quadrants, making up a greater whole. We are split between P2P vs. B2B and front end vs. back end. Right now, we have only one quadrant of the company fully built out and in use; Resolvr. This application represents our B2B back end product, responsible for spend management. We are building out a front end add-on, to handle RFPs, under the Resolvr name. Businesses will be able to put out RFPs in a standardized front end, with metric-driven filtering, and full back end spend management support. Our P2P products are built around the concept of a consumer version of our B2B software, a platform for exchange of services and a back end of spend analysis.

What follows is an overview of these products and an overview of recent announcements, with a final look at what the future holds for aXpire.

P2P Product: MatchBX

Our P2P marketplace, Matchbox Blockchain Exchange, MatchBX (pronounced “Matchbox”), is a relatively new concept in the life cycle of aXpire, incorporated in light of the strong demand for crypto-based services in the market. We saw a demand for handling RFPs in the B2B context, and have translated that into a higher volume consumer environment. We are allowing individuals to participate in the platform as part of the new economy, either as a freelancer or as a task creator. We will power this product, as with all of our products, with AXP – driving token value in (yet another) use case.

We will work to expand our Preferred Provider Network, right now featuring Devery among others, to offer customers access to trusted and preferred sources of high value services. This network will provide users access to a trusted product, sometimes at bonus or discount prices, through partnerships these companies have with aXpire.

In the background of this product we will run a different kind of spend analysis, demand prediction, which will drive additional preferred partners to our site. Think of it like surge demand on Uber, except without the associated price increases – we simply point partners towards early indicators of demand and the need for supply to fill any gaps.

We will implement a small fee on all transactions via an AXP burn.

B2B Product: Resolvr

With Resolvr, users are able to view, in real time, spend data across their company; providing live data for intelligence profit maximization. The AXP token serves to reduce the incentive for cyber security threats by securely decentralizing the distribution of our software. As a founding member of the International RegTech Association, aXpire’s blockchain technology leaves an immutable trail of transactions; providing value throughout the auditing, compliance and reporting process.

The methods in use at current businesses are demonstrably inefficient, which is improved with our software as it connects both fringe tasks and central tasks into one; effectively cutting costs by considerable amounts.

Businesses looking to utilize all Resolvr processes will need to use our native token, AXP, on a function by function basis, or in advance. Resolvr’s blockchain enhanced version will be as user friendly as possible, in terms of the AXP token not needing to be shown on our front end, but still serving as the underlying utility token; driving transactions and functions.

Recent Announcements

We continue to make exciting talent acquisitions, including Dom Wolf, as Product Lead. Dom is a Group Product Director at Virgin Mobile, a company associated with sleek design and user friendly products. He is experienced in the fintech sector, and has built his own successful startups, as well as mentored many others. Dom will be the Product Lead on our P2P marketplace, MatchBX, and will act as an active intermediary between management and the UI/UX team. We’ve also onboarded Gina Papush, as Data Analytics Advisor. Gina is the Global Chief Analytics & Data Officer for QBE, and is recognized for proven leadership and expertise in analytic innovation and data-driven strategies. During her 20-year career, she has successfully built leading decision analytic and information management capabilities across diverse industries and business models, delivering significant business results.

We are also excited to announce a fully in-house development team on a go forward basis. Namely, we are proud to announce a new UI/UX acquisition, Henry Doe, who is an award-winning London designer. Henry’s blockchain experience includes a role as UX Lead at Lloyd’s of London. Additional members of this development team include Sojan P S, Blockchain Lead, and Sankar Das G, Product Development Lead. Our other new acquisitions to the in-house blockchain development team will also be announced soon.

Our Future

Expect more updates; our network will only keep growing as we move forward along our roadmap. We look forward to announcing a partnership with a number of significant players in the crypto space and continuing to add to our team. We will aim to share weekly/bi-weekly updates with the community going forward to keep those committed to our project as in the loop as we can, while allowing for time to work on the project. Expect product updates as well, with the potential for early feedback and MVP testing.

Moreover, we remain busy with product development, and will look to sharing our progress with the community as we go.

act

ACT is a decentralized funding platform for Activism and Social Good

It is supported by the ACT Foundation a Swiss non-profit whose purpose is the promotion of donation-led support that improves the extent and capability of citizens to hold the state accountable and make it responsive to their needs.

The Platform has its own publicly tradable crypto-token called CE7 that proposal curators hold. Curators are rewarded with a percentage of Platform revenues. To vote on proposals using the ACT App, you need to buy ACT. This is also a crypto-token purchased with Ethereum on the ACT App. It is not publicly tradable. The revenues from ACT purchases fund causes, support Platform development and promotion, and reward curators.

act

Proposals are submitted to the ACT Curation Engine where they are curated by ACT curators. Only activist proposals qualify for ACT funding and they are only funded if a quorum is reached during voting. Other proposals go directly to an Open Funding section of the App, a funding smart contract is created, and proposal-makers can crowdfund with links to their campaign page on the App.

The App Platform comprises two parts:

The ACT App | The ACT Curation Engine (ACE)

You can interact with the ACT prototype smart contracts on the Ethereum testnet using our basic Cordova Apps for testing purposes. iOS is on test-flight only and only available to our community of testers.

Do not send real ETH or CE7 to the testnet applications. You can obtain Rinkeby test Ether here.

Warmest regards,

ALMBank Platform To Improve Access To Crypto Labor

As the cryptocurrency market continues to expand, so too does the demand for labor serving that market. Unfortunately, platforms have not been available that allow people to find secure employment in the evolving cryptocurrency industry and to enable employers to find good, reliable talent.

ALMBank, an Ethereum-based platform that provides a barter backed labor pool, provides a solution to the demand for good employees in the fast-growing cryptocurrency industry.

In addition to offering new ways for finding and providing good labor, ALMBank supports a charitable culture by offering a forum for posting charitable enterprises in need of labor.

The founders envision ALMBank as a high-end, cryptocurrency job market focusing on helping startups, charitable enterprises and ICOs.

ALMBank has been designed to provide a higher standard for freelancing via the blockchain. The platform also will help freelancers develop higher standards of cultural innovation.

Labor Organization Needed

The industry’s growth has resulted in a large number of freelancers with cryptocurrency skills. However, outside of Reddit and other forums, none of this labor is organized.

ALMBank will save people coming into the industry from being forced to use inefficient forums and message boards.

Existing employee marketplace platforms currently charge high fees for both employers and employees. This system results in poor matches for the workers. None of the platforms operate on a labor backed currency to provide a sustainable demand and drive for an efficient labor barter system.

ALMBank will offer employers a flat rate, one-time hiring fee system as opposed to the existing 20% headhunter model that has sapped hiring budgets.

Employers will barter with freelancers for their services or pay them in ALM tokens.

There will be no membership fees to join the platform, only service fees for those fulfilling paid tasks. The platform will charge employers a 3% to 9% fee for administrative costs.

All ALMBank transactions will occur immediately, and no one monitors employee/employer exchanges. The platform will also offer offsite, third-party escrow for larger transactions, taking responsibility for payment delivery.

The platform will take measures to ensure fairness for investors such as providing historical and current data.

Focus On Charitable Enterprises

ALMBank will allow people to post charitable projects that are needed. Others will be able to apply to complete these charitable projects.

The charitable portion will be paid for by a 50/50 split of fees generated by the profit side of the platform. Half of the fee goes back as a charitable reinvestment, while the other half is used for covering business expenses like salaries, maintenance and growth.

The platform will also provide continued training via YouTube and personal development programs.

Platform users will own 5% of the platform, with tokens paid out on an annual basis based on usage at the given time.

Hard Assets To Provide Platform Stability

ALMBank will back 30% of the platform with funds raised by gold, silver and fiat to ensure stability. A monthly ledger will verify the deposits via Skype and Facebook or public keys on the ALMBank website.

The pre-ICO has been extended to Feb. 27.

The ICO will start on Feb. 27, then run for 30 days. The price will be 1,000 AALM equaling 1 ETH, without bonuses.

During the ICO, there will be time bonuses for early payments, bulk purchase bonuses and referral bonuses for both the referrer and the person referred.

There is a 99.999 million token cap, although the number of tokens raised in the crowdsale and presale combined will account for no more than 30% of the total number of tokens. Additional tokens will be sold at the platform’s launch.

The time bonus will be 15% at the start of the ICO, decreasing to zero at the end of the ICO.

The token contract will be based on the OpenZeppelin library.
