BLOCKCHAIN COMPANY TOKEN OFFERING
The subscription period for the STO ended on 31 October 2020.
Blockchain Company, the UK-based startup bringing tokenization to everyone by building an ecosystem of easy-to-use tokenized applications.
Blockchain Company (BC) aims to bring tokenization to the masses by building a unique ecosystem of pragmatic utilities and easy-to-use applications for consumers. BC successfully conducted two seed rounds over the last two years raising EUR 2.5 million at a valuation of EUR 25 million through a Family Office. The seed capital has helped with significant alpha beta development of several projects.
The three main tokenised utilities in MVP stage are:
All three tap into multi-trillion-dollar markets such as new technologies, post-Covid-19 investments and search engines.
“We are building the next tokenized utility ecosystem that will make business more egalitarian and help humanise technology.”

Tokens are cryptographic assets that have the potential to make business more inclusive and benefit all stakeholders, as well as creating positive network effects that translate into the value of these assets.
However, the crypto-market is currently oversaturated with tokens that do not have widespread usability or utility. Many assets focus on technical solutions or others are simply speculative assets with little use for consumers. So far, few projects have succeeded in reaching mass adoption due to their complexity and the technical knowledge needed to interact with their product/service.
Blockchain Company focuses on consumer tokens and their potential intrinsic value based on large-scale adoption and organic demand. In order to attain these two goals, BC emulated utility platforms that everyday Internet users know and use, and engineered all necessary features to make them usable with their respective tokens:
- An e‑commerce platform: Blockchain Valley (4IR token)
- A search engine: Blockabase (BASE token)
- A social co-trading network: BiCstreet (BICS token)
The business models and scalability of such platforms are proven and easily understandable, thus creating the foundation for mass adoption.
The tokens will be used for transactions, participation, reward systems and any further imaginable coded incentive, thus boosting demand by including all stakeholders in the value creation process.
Compared to non-tokenized competitors of the aforementioned utilities, BC’s platforms allow to harness the value of the utility in their respective tokens. Users are rewarded for their participation and for growing the community, thus attracting the interest of companies that want to interact with the user-base and impacting positively the value of the token used for all sorts of transactions.
Furthermore, all of Blockchain Company’s utilities will allow the users to monetize their data, by deciding to sell them to bidding parties at their will. The platforms themselves will not monetize the users’ data without their consent.
Also, each utility has a clearly defined market vertical and aims to harness the value of the targeted industry and community around a token they can identify with.
The business models are based on proven scalable B2B2C platform concepts, focusing on growing addressable markets like the 4th Industrial Revolution technologies (USD 2,7 trillion) or search engines (USD 200 billion).
The revenue models, as explained more in detail in the Pitch Deck and the specific projects’ Whitepaper, will be mainly based on:
i. Memberships (users and companies)
ii. Commissions on transactions and data monetization
iv. Advertising (Blockabase advertising engine)
Blockchain Company’s aim is to channel 0,5 % of the obtainable 4th Industrial Revolution technologies market through Blockchain Valley and reach 0,1% market share in the search engine industry over the next 5 to 6 years.
Blockchain Company has developed the technological and physical architecture for the three previously mentioned assets. BC launched Blockabase and opened its first BiCstreet location earlier in 2020. The utilities of these two assets are operational and can therefore be marketed and scaled immediately with this funding round. The Blockchain Valley platform will go live after the end of the ICO.
Hence, the STO will help optimise BC’s ambitious road map of product launches, their optimisation, including design, UX and UI, and the planned token sales. The funds will be allocated mainly to grow BC’s current projects, expand their reach, improve current assets and develop new features.
Some of the purposes for the allocated funds would be:
Marketing and PR: A key component to success is reaching a critical amount of users, for which purpose BC will need to do an extensive marketing and PR campaign.
Product and software development: BC’s three main projects are in alpha beta development stage. UX and UI, the underlying blockchain technology, new interoperable features, process pipeline, multithreading, scalable infrastructure, latest framework integrations, AI and machine-learning will be developed.
Human resources: Additional staff will be needed to execute the road map correctly.
Expenses for ICO and future token launches: Smart contracts, legal & compliance fees, KYC & AML.
An ecosystem and social e‑commerce platform for products and services relating to 4th Industrial Revolution (4th IR) Technologies.
The vision is to unify complex emerging technologies and create an ecosystem based on the unique blockchain architecture, which will evolve into the backbone of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The proposal is to bring consumers and companies together in a tokenized smart community called Blockchain Valley (BV). Participants can become part of a next generational Silicon Valley that helps connect inevitable 4th IR technologies directly with global consumers who will jointly represent and grow the smart community.
Blockchain Valley’s ecosystem will have its own native utility token called 4IR and sophisticated reward mechanisms embedded in its DNA, turning BV into an incentivised global smart community.
BV will mostly be accessible through its eCommerce digital platform, but will also have a smart community geophysical location in Stellenbosch, South Africa, for strategic reasons.
This will include several facilities ranging from coworking spaces, to 4th IR tech research, labs, training, innovation, education, event venues, business spaces and lifestyle facilities to enable physical engagement and networking within the smart community as well as access to the African market.
* Note: The Blockchain Valley platform will be in sandbox mode until after the AMF (French SEC, Financial Market Authority) has approved our 4IR Utility Token Public Sale. The BV platform will then become fully operational at the end of that utility token sale. Contact us for a demo.
BiCstreet is the world’s first company focused on providing social member spaces for investors, traders, hedge funds, skilled professionals, novices and entrepreneurs.
BiCstreet creates professional social member spaces for today’s diverse and dispersed global community of investors to come together under one roof with the core long-term goal of becoming a specialized peer-to-peer co-trading network, dedicated for anyone with a passion for technology and financial markets.
BiCstreet spaces are designed to have a comfortable atmosphere, with intimate conversational couch areas, traders desks and high speed internet connectivity. Each social space will include multiple meeting rooms to host professional events.
Due to social distancing measures around the world, BICstreet’s concept fits perfectly into the new decentralised work trend of remote working and temporary office renting.
The first physical location opened in Cape Town, South Africa, and hosted several events. We are currently hosting webinars with wealth management professionals whilst the digital utility is in development. Find information on the current events on our LinkedIn page.
The native BICS token will be the preferred means of exchange for transactions in the BiCstreet ecosystem.
The world wide web has become an integral part of the lives of over two thirds of the global population, yet its users have very little influence over its development and have no stake in the networks they enjoy and generate value for.
The internet of information has become subject to an alarming concentration of power.
This can radically change through token economies, which will pave the way for the internet of value and a digital ecosystem built around an application with a unique and native ecosystem token.
blockabase.com is the world’s first user-generated and token-incentivized search engine.

In order to give investors the opportunity to buy and sell their Token through a regulated European market place, BC intents to list its BCT Token with “Archax”.
Archax, the forthcoming London-based institutional digital securities exchange, is focused on institutions and professional investors, as well as all types of digital securities globally. Its application to operate a multilateral trading facility (MTF) in London is in the final stages of being considered by the FCA.
