Afterschool is launching its token on the 26th, the Afterschool Token (AST), to fund the decentralization of its two-sided marketplace and support its wider expansion plans.
It’s less than 2 days away and we put together reasons why you should be putting your ETH to buy Afterschool tokens.
We are the first!
Afterschool is the world’s first after school activity booking platform and kids’ activities marketplace to use blockchain technology, paving the way for parents to pay for their children’s after school activities using digital tokens. This gives us a head start on our competitors and on top of the rapidly moving trends in the edtech industry. In the future, we hope that Afterschool token becomes the go-to digital currency for all payments and transactions across the education industry as a whole. Exciting, right?
A great team
Afterschool has grown quickly in 2 years. And we attribute this success to our people. We’re lucky to have found the right talent in our developers, operational managers, and sales and business development group who shares and follows our vision. Coupled with passion, my team has the ability to execute. We have gathered together a diverse team of skilled team leaders who has a strong record of delivering on projects. This coming ICO has motivated the team more than ever! Everyone became involved and I never saw the team worked this hard. I can assure you that our team can be relied to execute this idea and get things done!
Not just a business, but a solution
When I came up with the idea of Afterschool, my intention was to solve a pressing problem I see among UAE parents, something which I experienced firsthand – finding that perfect after school activity for my children with my busy schedule as a working Mom. It was a hassle to visit numerous websites to compare prices and check reviews. It was right there that I decided to fix the problem myself with Afterschool.
When you’re solving a problem you experienced yourself, you go the extra mile to find that winning solution. Our product has a real need and parents were able to identify with it. It wasn’t hard to convince them of the problem and the need for our platform. We solved a real problem and this is why our product is a success. All the improvements we made in our platform are mainly driven by two things: feedback from parents and partners; and technological innovations. And as long as we can still do better, we will find ways to make it better! That’s why we have this ICO to help us kickstart a decentralized marketplace and exciting things will spring from there.
Established business model in the market
The main advantage of Afterschool over other ICOs is its existing functional, revenue generating platform. It’s winning business model has brought in 500 activity providers, 25,000+ registered parents and has generated millions of dollars’ worth of activity bookings since 2015. Investors are invited to help it bring the underlying technology forward by implementing blockchain.
When you participate in the Afterschool ICO, not only will you become part of a revolutionary platform developing a leadership position in the after school industry but also be involved with a business with double-digit growth on reach. With the market extremely receptive to our services and through our continued marketing efforts, most importantly – word of mouth, more and more parents and providers are getting on board.
We have taken the market leadership in the UAE and our next step will be to move on and replicate our success in more places worldwide.
Solid road map
The launch of Afterschool’s own virtual token supports an existing operational platform with a solid business plan to utilize the fundraising proceeds from the ICO. The proceeds from the ICO will be distributed to the following:
- 60% for sales and marketing to drive expansion plans
- 30% for product development and maintenance
- 10% customer service and day-to-day operations
Our company roadmap is clearly outlined in our white paper, providing details of our long-term vision including the integration of decentralized technologies and expansion plans in the next three years.
