Zloadr is a viral news and media publishing platform “built for creators”. Find out how it works today in our review.
What Is Zloadr?
Zloadr, found online at Zloadr.com, aims to amplify newsworthy content with the help of influencers and bounty hunters.
The platform already exists today at Zloadr.com. It was launched in 2016. Throughout 2017, the developers have been preparing to migrate the platform to blockchain technology.
The ecosystem revolves around the use of ZDR tokens. Advertisers use ZDR tokens to access a platform with millions of views. Today, users can spend ZDR tokens or fiat currencies to buy job postings, business listings, or classified ads on the Zloadr platform.
Ultimately, Zloadr aims to be a viral news and media publishing platform that rewards creators by giving them a slice of advertising revenue – similar to how platforms like Steemit work.
The Zloadr ICO is taking place throughout October, ending on October 31.
How Does Zloadr Work?
Zloadr is based on a unique concept. It aims to solve the problem faced by many startups, particularly in the blockchain community. These startups plan to launch an ICO for their digital tokens. To attract attention for the ICO, they need to buy marketing materials using fiat currencies or major cryptocurrencies. They don’t always have this money, which is why many ICOs never get off the ground.
Zloadr aims to solve that problem by allowing startup companies to pay for advertising on the platform using their own digital currencies as a payment method. That digital currency might not currently have value, but it will have value once the ICO takes place, and it could have even greater value in the future.
Here’s how the official Zloadr.com website explains it:
“By accepting the developer's own cryptocurrency ahead of their initial Coin Offering or token release date, Zloadr is not only able to utilize the developers tokens by compensating influencers and bounties but seize a large share of the lucrative cryptocurrency and blockchain market by collecting new and highly lucrative tokens consistently.”
Meanwhile, content creators can create content to the platform, contribute to existing media channels, launch brands, and monitor their activity and income via blockchain technology.
Overall, Zloadr aims to benefit two types of advertisers. The first type includes advertisers who are not cryptocurrency-savvy. These advertisers have the option of engaging with the platform by either paying in Zloadr tokens or fiat currency. The other option is to accept advertisement payments from a user who holds a portfolio of altcoins, or someone who wishes to pay with their own digital tokens that are about to be launched in an upcoming ICO.
Zloadr doesn’t just keep these tokens for itself. The company spreads the share of tokens between influencers and “bounties hunters” who have agreed to take part in generating promotion for the ICO and startup. These influencers will push the ICO to a network of fans or followers by sharing, liking, or tweeting content as it’s published on the Zloadr platform.
Overall, Zloadr’s platform is catered towards content creators who want to earn revenue in exchange for promoting ICOs and startups. Those content creators could include publishers, agents, authors, writers, journalists, connectors, and influencers. Here are some of the features enjoyed by these content creators:
- Activity Stats: Monitor your income and content activity via blockchain technology.
- Content Formats: Choose between various content display formats.
- Launch Brands: Launch single or multiple brands on the platform.
- Contribute: Contribute to existing media channels and publications.
- Content Management: Self-manage content through your own Zloadr dashboard.
- Set Prices: Set custom prices for your own content.
The Zloadr Token Sale
The Zloadr ICO began on September 30 and ends on October 31. Bonuses of 10% to 30% are available throughout the sale.
There’s a total supply of 100 million ZDR tokens. 65% of those tokens are being sold through the crowdsale. 25% are reserved for the team. 5% are reserved for research, 4% for development, and 0.9% for bounties.
The price per token is locked at a rate of 1 token = $0.31 USD.
It’s not clear where the remaining 100,000 tokens are being spent. Based on the percentages above, 99.9% of tokens are accounted for, with 100,000 tokens remaining.
In any case, the Zloadr platform will continue to accept fiat currencies and Zloadr tokens after the ICO. However, those who spend Zloadr tokens will enjoy additional benefits. Tokens allow job ads to last 5 times longer than the equivalent in USD< for example, and business listings last 7 times longer.
The Zloadr Roadmap
Zloadr’s platform was first created in January 2015. By September 2016, they had 110,000+ business articles along with tens of thousands of career articles, travel guides, and food and drink recipes. In July 2017, the company began to integrate the platform with blockchain technology, including smart contracts and a blockchain ledger.
The full blockchain-based release of Zloadr is scheduled for November 2017. That release will be accompanied with marketplace apps.
