Blockchainvalley 4IR utility Tokens can be used as a means of payment to acquire goods for products and services that will be offered on the E-commerce Platform, and incentive rewards
PARIS, FRANCE, February 28, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Blockchain Valley SAS (“ BlockchainValley ”) announced on the of 6th February 2023 that the French financial markets authority (the “AMF”) has approved the information document (the “Information Document” or “Document d’Information” in French, commonly called a “WhitePaper”) under the Visa number ICO.23-028 prepared by BlockchainValley in connection with the public offering of utility tokens, the “4IR Tokens” to be registered on the Ethereum blockchain in a first phase of the project (the “ICO”).
BlockchainValley.info aims to raise funds by this ICO to finance the development of its project to create a digital ecosystem based on the creation and deployment of an e-commerce platform (the « Digital Platform ») focused on the sale of goods and the provision of services related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (the « Project »). This concept covers a range of advanced technologies including artificial intelligence, blockchain, 5G, the Internet of Things (or IoT), cloud services, nanotechnology and autonomous vehicles.
Around this Digital Platform, the ambition of the Project is to create a real ecosystem that brings together individuals, companies, associations, organizations and public authorities that offer or seek to benefit from goods or services related to these advanced technologies.
The 4IR Tokens can be used by their holders as a means of payment to acquire goods or benefit from services that will be offered on the Digital Platform, but also as an incentive for the various stakeholders involved in the BlockchainValley ecosystem developed around the Project. More information about the rights and obligations attached to the 4IR Tokens issued in the context of the ICO is provided in Section 3 of the Information Document.
The first phase of the BlockchainValley Digital Platform has already been developed by an evolving team of developers and is accessible in a sandbox beta version during the Offer. The Digital Platform will be officially launched at the end of the Offer.
Beyond the deployment of the Digital Platform, the Project also aims to develop various technological applications (the « Applications ») that will benefit the various stakeholders of the BlockchainValley ecosystem. Number of interoperable Applications had already been developed such as 4IR Jobs, 4IR Cloud, DAOKYC, Blockaform. Other Applications are currently being developed such as 4IR Blockchain Protocol, 4IR Wallet, 4IR Explorer. More information about the future BlockchainValley ecosystem features is provided in Section 2.1.11 of the Information Document.
In the context of the Offer, BlockhainValley plans to raise between €1 million to 200 million euros. However, intermediate thresholds will allow it to develop its activity progressively:
The minimum funds envisaged to be raised for the success of the Offer (the « Soft Cap ») has been set at €1 million.
If the funds raised do not allow the said Soft Cap to be reached, then investors will be reimbursed for the amount of their subscription under the conditions set out in Section 2.7.2 of the Information Document. In this context, BlockchainValley appointed an escrow agent for the funds raised in euros and in digital assets (the “Escrow Agent”) and who will be responsible to retain the funds until the Soft Cap has been reached. More information about the role played by the Escrow Agent is provided in Section 2.7.2 and 71.2 of the Information Document.
If the funds raised enable the Soft Cap to be reached, the funds raised will enable the Project to be officially launched by financing the technical development costs of the Digital Platform as well as those associated with the initial communication and marketing actions.
The first milestone has been set at € 50 million (the “First Milestone”). The funds raised will be used to finance the technical developments of the Digital Platform necessary for the onboarding of companies, organizations and public authorities so that they can offer their goods and services. They will also allow BlockchainValley to finance the acquisition of the first infrastructure in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The official target has been set at €200 million (the “Hard Cap”). The sums raised will thus enable the development and improvement of the various Application (for example, the 4IR Wallet, 4IR Explorer, 4IR Job, 4IR Cloud, the DAOKYC tool and the 4IR Blockchain Protocol). Depending on the funds raised, the funds will also be used to finance the reinforcement of the project’s physical presence in Stellenbosh in South Africa via the acquisition of new infrastructure.
For each of these thresholds, detailed information concerning the use by BlockchainValley of the funds and digital assets raised is provided in Section 2.5, in Section 2.7.1 and in Section 5.1 of the Information Document.
The Information Document has been approved by the AMF under visa No ICO.23-028 (https://bdif.amf-france.org/fr/details/ICO_23-0028).
