Blockchain is still very new to mainstream society. The majority of people think that this is just a type of online currency. We are going to utilise blockchain to help overcome issues with crowd funding. More specifically equity crowd funding. There are many different crowdfunding platforms out there today. One of the first and most well known is Kickstarter. On Kickstarter, people invest in idea that they like, and at each bracket of investment you are offered a reward, usually getting better the more you invest. The reward will be worth less than the amount of investment. If you truly believe in the idea you’re investing in, why not become a part of it? With EQ Token, any investment you make in a company will give you equity in that company and allow distribution of dividends as well as the ability to sell your equity at any time. If you had of invested $10 in Uber in 2009 when they were worth $3.7m, your $10 investment would now be worth over $250,000 as they are now worth over $100b. Imagine if you’d have invested that $10 on Kickstarter and got some type of Uber novelty key chain as a reward???
Me (James Borland) – 2:1 Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering, experience as a manufacturing engineer / mechanical engineer / production engineer. Experience managing big projects with multiple suppliers/contractors/engineers. 3 years investment experience in the cryptocurrency markets. After the IEO, I hope to quickly build a great team of talented people with the same enthusiasm for EQ Token as I have. This will include hiring a website designer and software engineer to prepare for the initial product launch as well as a marketing manager to ensure we have enough website traffic when we get started. We will open a UK office and then expand elsewhere in Europe. Near the end of the first year we hope to be able to open a US office.
