OPEN Announces Asian Roadshow + Global Developer Competition


We are excited to announce that OPEN Platform will be conducting an awareness campaign in the upcoming weeks in South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Japan as our private token sale is not for participants based in the US.

The OPEN team understands how important the Asian markets are to the success and mainstream adaptation of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. For this reason the OPEN team is traveling to five of the top Asian tech markets to discuss the advantages of OPEN Platform and how it can be used to empower developers and enrich the crypto community. Speakers will include team members and strategic partners, and participants will be invited to participate in OPEN’s first developer contest.

Developers, cryptocurrency enthusiasts, and anyone else interested in technology are welcome to visit OPEN Platform’s roadshow on the following dates:

  • Seoul (April 30th, 6:00 PM — 9:00 PM): OPEN Platform is kicking off their roadshow in Seoul, South Korea at the GLAD Hotel.
  • Hong Kong (May 3rd, 6:00 PM — 9:00 PM): at Mettā, 21/F California Tower, 30–32 D’Aguilar St, Central, HK
  • Shenzhen (May 4th, 6:00 PM — 9:00 PM): at the Ritz Carlton, 116 Fuhua 3rd Rd, FuTian CBD, Futian Qu, Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng, China, 518000
  • Shanghai (May 7th): at the Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong
  • Hangzhou (May 8th): at the JW Marriott Hotel Hangzhou

OPEN Developer Contest

OPEN is also proud to announce its first ever developer contest. At each stop along our roadshow, we will be accepting ideas from local developers for a cool new blockchain game or DAPP that best harnesses the power of the OPEN Platform. At the conclusion of the roadshow, the top three ideas submitted will each receive a prize of 250 hours of expert development work realized by Zensoft and paid from the OPEN Developer Pool. These hours will be employed in building out the winning ideas, and once the applications are live OPEN will provide them with ongoing marketing exposure!

Winners will be announced in New York at the Consensus 2018 technology summit on May 15th.

TLDR: We are currently debating an Asian HQ in Seoul, Korea or Hong Kong.

The Asian markets play an influential role in the success of blockchain projects and cryptocurrencies. Approximately 40{e9b7b6e97581a958d2bc378a46799d644da7fe427050b58be8de8c4fdd2a2020} of all the people using cryptocurrencies are in Asia. OPEN Platform aims to reach Asian crypto enthusiasts and the Asian-Pacific gaming industries, currently the largest gaming market in the world.

There’s currently a gap in the blockchain market with payment processing systems. Platforms like Bitpay offer rudimentary payment-processing solutions, but its limited capabilities make it inconvenient for customers and sellers alike.

OPEN Platform is able to fill those gaps by providing a blockchain-based payment solution that integrates seamlessly into new and old apps, giving users the option of purchasing software and in-app services using a cryptocurrency of their choice. The process is quick, easy to use, and doesn’t require blockchain coding knowledge in order to implement.

OPEN Platform works with all apps — not just those operating on the blockchain. This makes it the easiest and most convenient way to process microtransactions, authorize applications, and handle purchases on the digital marketplace.
