Stox (STX) is an open source, Ethereum based platform for prediction markets where people can trade the outcome of events in almost any imaginable category – sports, celebrity marriages, election results, and even the weather. The platform targets mainstream audiences and allows investors to leverage their knowledge and profit from prediction events. Stox is a spin-off of invest.com, an online financial company operating since 2014, which employs over 200 employees across 5 countries, and whose trading platforms accommodate over 3 million registered users.


Prediction markets are an exchange where any individual or organization can tap into the “wisdom of the crowd” to ask any question or predict the result of any event – users trade on the outcome of the event in to form of a stock exchange. Similar to financial markets, which assign a price to the future estimated earnings of a stock, prediction markets assign a traded price to a belief about the future or the probability of an event outcome. Individuals buy and sell outcome shares based on what they see as the probability at any given moment. For example, a price of 0.6 indicates a 60% chance of occurrence, and this price fluctuates along with changes in perception or additional information. Prediction markets are known to be useful not only for understanding the crowd mindset on certain topics, but also as effective prognostic tools (in a similar fashion to economic markets), and are used by large institutions and companies to predict the outcomes of business or product development courses.

The end goal for Stox is to create the leading decentralized prediction market used by mainstream audiences, by maintaining a thriving ecosystem of users looking to invest in event outcomes and providers looking to create events and be compensated for operating them. The main role of Stox is to develop the open source technology required for running the decentralized Stox platform and network and create a successful model incentivizing both users and providers to join the network.

Stox will be powered by the STX digital token, to be used for all activity in the network, including fees and collaterals as well as the currency for predicting event outcomes. STX value is designed to grow along with demand as more users and providers join the ecosystem. By combining expertise in regulated markets with blockchain technology, Stox incentivizes providers with existing customer bases, such as invest.com itself, to join and drive traffic to the network; indeed, Stox will feature invest.com as its debut provider. Providers will be motivated to cooperate as part of a larger network, while users will enjoy a well-rounded selection accommodating their diversified interests.

 

Stox 1

While committed to following all required regulations, Stox recognizes that it is still unclear how this activity is to be treated from a regulatory viewpoint. In decentralized applications, however, separate functions in the system can operate in isolation and possibly be provided by different vendors, making it easier to comply with the regulations of each field of activity or jurisdiction.

Also, since STX is a flexible exchange-rate currency, it is exposed to general liquidity and volatility risks, which could deter investors and users from participating. To avoid the adverse effects of separating the operational currency from the investment currency, Stox will rely on Bancor (an ERC20-compatible token template that offers continuous liquidity via an on-chain market maker) as the token platform for STX to resolve liquidity risks, and on the initial activity volume brought by invest.com to mitigate volatility. Furthermore, in order to appeal to a wide, mainstream audience, the acquisition and utilization of STX will be made as straightforward for users as using tokens in an online game.

Stox is introduced to a market already offering two prominent decentralized implementations – Augur and Gnosis – both of which have carried out successful ICOs. Stox self-identifies as having three distinctive characteristics: its single token economy, unique business model, and mainstream user facing design. Stox views prediction markets as a business, one which enables individuals to leverage the information or knowledge they possess for personal material gain by investing STX in event outcomes. For this, the trade engine must be practical and operate quickly and easily enough to satisfy its users. Therefore, Stox has designed its oracle mechanism under the assumption that it would usually use a centralized oracle, which – although contrary to the decentralization ideal – mainstream users do not normally consider a disadvantage.

Stox’s roadmap is made up of five milestones: development of the Stox Platform, development of the Stox App, launch with invest.com customer network, development of an ecosystem member SDK, and growing the ecosystem. In order to finance this roadmap, Stox will conduct a token sale of an initial supply of STX tokens. STX will be sold at a constant price (in ETH) and the initial supply will depend on the amount of STX sold. As of the conclusion of the sale, the distributed STX will constitute the entirety of the available liquid supply. A portion of the supply would be preallocated to invest.com (as the founding member of the ecosystem) in a long term vesting schedule. A major portion of the allocation to Stox Ltd. will be used for bringing further strategic partners to the platform. Also, after the end of the sale period, Stox will deposit 4% of the STX market cap in BNT as the currency reserve of STX, thereby activating its Bancor Smart Token features.

As you mentioned, Floyed Mayweather did publish a post on social media, saying 'he's about to make a lot of money' through investing in Stox's ICO - http://fortune.com/2017/07/27/mayweather-ico/

We do not know the nature of this message, but it is a good sign for the ICO itself when looking at the exposure it got on large media outlets.

Mayweather has a lot of offshore 'businesses' or associates that can buy into the ICO that can later 'invest' the money they made back into TMT. The cool thing about this is that he has reached over 16 million people with one post. My guess is the ICO will be sold out within 24 hours, as they only need about 160.000 ETH, which isn't a lot. I'm definitely going to invest, it's got one of the most diverse and experienced teams I've ever seen, the coin is still very cheap (+- 0.80$) and their marketing is extraordinary. I could see this coin being sold for 5$ after the ICO at least
