Welcome my friends to a new interesting ICO today and let’s see their great idea:
Empowering the Decentralization of Online Marketplaces
The key benefits :
5miles comprises of team members with extensive experience from leading internet companies, e-commerce platforms, and financial services companies from 5 different countries. For the past three years, the team has applied their expertise to build a successful marketplace, which has become one of the leading shopping apps in the US, generating over USD 3 billion of annual transaction value.
From 1 to 100
Compared to most blockchain projects, 5xlab already has a solid foundation, with 3 years of track record and 12 million users for its initial blockchain applications. Validated by approximately USD 62 million of funding from top VCs, and strengthened by its blockchain research over the past half-year, 5miles’ blockchain initiative has already gone from “0” to “1”. With 5xlab and the development of CyberMiles, we can realize our potential and go from “1” to “100” in our ability to disrupt real-world business practices with innovation.
With 5miles, we have a clear and readily available ecosystem for us to apply our smart-contract modules to real marketplace needs. With more than 10 million users and millions of commercial transactions, 5miles provides CyberMiles & its smart-contract modules with a mature ecosystem to quickly develop and scale up its marketplace applications. In contrast, most other blockchain projects first develop the technology, and then search for applications, which is inefficient and highly uncertain.
Open collaboration & development
To further drive mainstream adoption, 5miles will establish a CyberMiles contracts market, in which its CyberMiles application modules can be licensed or jointly developed with partner platforms and agencies. Our smart-contract modules will be proven on our 5miles ecosystem, but can be applied to other platforms, and will also welcome collaboration with relevant agencies to ensure scalability of our solutions.
Striking balance between efficiency & compatibility
Traditional blockchains emphasize decentralization and compatibility across networks, but often at the expense of efficiency, which limits are appeal and usability for end-applications. Furthermore, a completely decentralized chain may be corrupted if too much poor-quality coding is accumulated. CM will focus on commercial applications, with protocols to ensure the appropriate balance between vertical effectiveness and network compatibility, limiting the ability for low-quality DApp to emerge on our chain.
5miles an ideal exosystem for blockchain development
Almost all of the transactions and interactions on 5miles is point-to-point (between buyers and sellers), and a large portion of our users are both active buyers and sellers. Additionally, 5miles has a market-by-market footprint, establishing highly active and very dense user communities in each of its core markets. The point-to-point transactions within a community are ideal for decentralized blockchain solutions to provide greater transparency & marketplace efficiency. Meanwhile, the market footprint allows for scalable, real-world A/B testing, giving CyberMiles a huge developmental advantage.
The Project vision & path:
CyberMiles is a new blockchain protocol being developed for the sole purpose of revolutionizing how commerce & marketplaces work. Imagine a world in which consumers can buy and sell products amongst themselves with the same confidence and certainty as they would from Amazon, or Walmart. Or if individuals could create their own marketplaces, and manage these communities in a truly democratic way. And now imagine if you could help shape this technology by being part of the network? That is the world that CyberMiles is creating.
CM is a new blockchain protocol being developed and optimized for business and marketplace applications. CM is being developed as a “fat protocol”, consisting of a blockchain-based “virtual machine”, and defined modules of middle-layer software stacks operating outside the chain, to support decentralized processes governed by smart contracts implemented on the network.
How does it work?
CM can be used for many different types of commercial applications, including turnkey solutions for building c2c trading platforms, community-based dispute resolution, structuring alternative payment & financing solutions for e-commerce, enabling local businesses to run targeted, real-time promotions, or building a decentralized, community-based ride-sharing platform. These are all examples of real-world problems that we are aiming to solve, but our first step is utilizing blockchain technology to revolutionize online marketplaces.
Compared to typical crypto-currency startups, CyberMiles has 2 major differences: Firstly, we have a team that is highly experienced with marketplaces & e-commerce (with an average of more than 12 years of experience at leading marketplace platforms), enabling us to better develop & execute on solutions for commercial applications. Secondly, 5miles has grown to a very significant scale since its launch 3 years ago. Its 12 million users, along with millions of transactions per year across more than 20 major categories, can be used to spearhead the early adoption of CM.
