June 6, 2018 — TIP Blockchain, an innovative ecosystem that allows users to easily use crypto in the real world, has officially launched its private sale. The sale will include a 200% bonus and run through June 15th. The amount of tokens sold will be limited to 5% of the token supply (which translates to approximately 1500 ETH). The private sale price will be 1 ETH/30,000 TIP compared to 1 ETH/10,000 TIP in the crowd sale. Currently only 4% of tokens remains in for this round.
TIP aims to empower users to tap into the 25 trillion dollar offline transaction data market by creating an ecosystem that allows users to easily use crypto in the real world and provide businesses with ability to understand, attract and acquire users in the offline world that’s never been possible before. The company does this in three ways:
- One-stop-shop platform where both users and businesses can easily transact in crypto without leaving the platform.
- Discovery blockchain where businesses can translate the offline transaction data of users into nuanced understanding that will find untapped way of engaging with them in day-to-day transactions.
- Allowing users to be compensated for sharing their data which further opens the ecosystem to richer and more nuanced data that hasn’t been accessible before
By creating a proper incentive ecosystem for users to share their offline data, TIP will discover countless ways where users and businesses can creatively interact. This includes both adoption and discovery. The former by creating a one-stop-shop platform for businesses and users to seamless use crypto in the offline world and the latter by releasing a blockchain that stores and enables development of tools and services on the offline transaction metadata.

- Token Model Tailored for Adoption – TIP’s incentive system that makes it attractive for users and vendors to constantly spend and be active on the platform
- Reducing Volatility via Dual Token Model – TIP’s dual token model that reduces volatility and allows users to easily use TIP in day-to-day transactions
