Icebreaker ships are all about forging and maintain water channels. Their sole purpose is to ensure passage through a network is possible.
Much like these amazing ships, IceBreakerAR has eyes on creating new channels between various users of their platform. Whether these users are looking for a casual experience, or an engaging professional one – IceBreakerAR has something to offer.
Recognizing the vulnerabilities of current social media offerings, IceBreakerAR is looking to provide a more secure service. Through the use of cryptographic hashing, blockchain technology provides some of the safest means to secure data in the current age. The only real threat to this technology is quantum computing, which should not become mainstream for many years.
To make the platform engaging, IceBreakerAR will rely on a mixture of traditional features and those afforded through the use of augmented reality. To create an in-app ecosystem, IceBreakerAR will allow for users to use their phones to access discounts and deals. Retailers will be able to display these promotions as a digital overlay of the real world. Simply look ‘through’ the window that is your phone, and view what it is that the store has to offer. Users will receive discounts, while retailers will receive extra business.
Networking with ICE
Those geared towards networking will be served well by the platform. Users will be able to list their skillsets and attributes. Through their interactions, users will gradually build a reputation. Those that build a strong, consistent reputation of informative and helpful interactions will be able to charge for their time. Users will be able to collect fees in the form of ICE tokens.
In conjunction with being rewarded for time spent, ICE token holders will have the ability to stake their tokens. This means that holders will be able to ‘lock-up’ their tokens for pre-set time periods, and receive a return on their investment. For those that want to acquire tokens outside of the app, expect ICE tokens to be readily available on popular cryptocurrency exchanges.
Those leading the charge at IceBreakerAR are a diverse cast. With a broad range of backgrounds in multiple industries, the company appears to be in good hands between its two founders.
CEO & Co-Founder – Thien To
COO & Co-Founder – Michael de Block
