What I like the most is the ability to integrate AGATE with almost any e-commerce website or in-store merchant.Was this already tested and if it was can you give any links or results or tests?

Yes you can test them all, please visit our Github rep @ https://github.com/agatechain and click on desire eCommerce platform/plugin then you can either install the app/plugin on your store and test it OR as we already installed them in our demo environment you can test it live, as an example for Woocommerce (the worlds most popular eCommerce platform you can test it here http://www.agate.services/product/test/ simply add the sample product in your basket/card then in checkout and choose Agate as the method of payment. )

I did not know this was already in the test phase, thank you for sharing Smiley

Thank you fro a prompt response and all this sources, will check it out and test and come back with some feedback.Much appreciated.

Agate is a great project with a lot of work already done behind them and app already in beta, though from what I was able to see it is Android.Do you have any iOS app already?

We developed both User and Merchant Apps for both Android and IOS platform however as you might know due to new Apple policy they won't any blockchain project/ICO app to be release on App store hence our strategy is to keep developing IOS as well and once we switch to main-net and got all approval speak with Apple to officially release our APP.


I'm not familiar with this Apple's policy, does that mean that most developers will give up developing iOS apps and focus on Android?

Why to even go with IOS then if there are such complications?

We were in middle of IOS development when unfortunately Apple changed their policy , BUT we keep developing the IOS app just in case if they changed their policy so we publish it shortly.

It would be a risk of leaving the development of the iOS platform, and there is still a possibility that Apple will change policy

Risk of leaving....you don't have to risk anything, you can simply postpone it. Android is much widely used anyway.

And not a bad thing to have iOS app ready once Apple lifts ban.and they will  do that,its just the matter of time.

I agree it's only a matter of time as most closed systems are now opening to crypto looking into the future.

I think it will take some more time but the moment when crypto becomes everyday will certainly come.

It seems it i not  a ban, a least not a regular ban.It is just that some procedures and policies by Apple need to be satisfied and it's good to go.If I understood it properly.

How do you plan to attract merchants to use Agate?

Really good questions and very important part of the project for sure, do you have a marketing plan for that?

I'll just add another question to this.

Do you have a dedicated team for PR and marketing and how much funding will go into marketing? It is important aspect of each project these days.

Thank you for asking this question, as you can see Ehsan Jahandarpour who is Agate’s CMO is one of the top 20 Growth Hackers in the world from Forbes magazine stand points also is contributor for entrepreneur.com and many more famous tech magazine, who has designed a very descriptive and powerful marketing strategy for pre ICO and after ICO, also as you can see in fund distribution chart available in Agatechain.org website about %40 of total collected fund would allocate to Marketing, growth hacking, PR,… not to mention we are directly working with two major PR agency and several other journalist and influencer which you will see some of the result in next few weeks as per our marketing road-map.

Nice to see that it is all so well thought of.What is a growth hacker btw. ? Cheesy

It's a legit question, lots of people don't know what they do, I didn't know either Cheesy
So wikipedia helps Cheesy

Growth hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing funnel, product development, sales segments, and other areas of the business to identify the most efficient ways to grow a business. A growth hacking team is made up of marketers, developers, engineers and product managers that specifically focus on building and engaging the user base of a business.

Growth hackers often focus on low-cost alternatives to traditional marketing, e.g. using social media, viral marketing or targeted advertising[2] instead of buying advertising through more traditional media such as radio, newspaper, and television.

Now that's what I call an answer Smiley thank you!


My pleasure Smiley

Marketing and PR are huge factors in the outcome of a project. You can have the best product out there, but if you can't surface, you can call it quits.


Thanks for note, YES we truly  believe the same that's why we allocated a big portion of invested fund (%40)  into marketing and hired top of the market people and agency.

Those kind of actions could get you to the hard cap in no time.


my pleasure Smiley

developing and marketing should imho have the same value in a project because one can not survive without the other. It's a synergy of both efforts at just the right time. And if you want the best results you have to get the help of industry professionals.

I agree, today's all about good marketing.

Great to see that you as a team take marketing seriously.Can you maybe provide us with some info about your marketing team?

And the name of the PR agency that you mention please.Thank you.

Well I wouldn't like them to rely only on marketing. Marketing can make yo a good head start bud if the product is shit it will loose on popularity really fast.

I agree, marketing can attract investors and raise a certain amount of funds but if the project is not of high quality all will collapse...

What will be the main AGATE  source of revenue?

Currently there are 10 direct utilisation for Agate and in-direct potential  in enormous because as an platform or blockchain protocol thousands of developers and business can use Agate to generate their own tokens and run their very own crypto economy on Agate,
here I copied 10 direct utilisation from WP:

------
Unlike most newly generated tokens of ICOs in blockchain apps or software with no or only one income stream, one of the value propositions of the AGT token is that it has several revenue streams to ensure our token holders have a solid, continuous value-added token. While we always work to add as many as possible new strong income streams for AGT token, here are some examples for the current Agate token:

1.   All exchange orders between different cryptocurrencies have a fixed cost of 1.00 AGT
2.   Any trades by Agate Trade Bot at the time of execution would cost 1.00 AGT
3.   Although exchanging cryptocurrency to any iFiat token is free, if users want to load their cards or request bank transfers, Agate will charge them an equivalent of 1% of the transferred order in AGT token.
 
Code:
Example: Tim wants to transfer $500 worth of BTC to his card. He exchanged 1 BTC on the best exchange rate (1 BTC = 10,000 iUSD), and his iBucket would charge iUSD 500 (no additional exchange or transfer fee) in the next step; he wants to load $500 to his card.
As 1 AGT ~ $0.079 and 1% of $500 is $5, he needs 63.291139 AGT to authorise this order; so let’s say the value of AGT token increases by 10X, and each token is worth $0.79; to do so, he needs 6.329113 AGT to do the same, so it’s always better to buy and keep more AGT token to save more on Agate fees.

4.   In order to bootstrap the Agate iFiat ecosystem while there is no transaction fee to buy any item inside Agate iFiat Ecosystem, for example, customers can go to any Agate Merchant, either in store or online, and pay 100 iUSD to buy some things, and merchants will receive the exact 100 iUSD, which they can use to pay to their suppliers who are also in this ecosystem, or they may prefer to cash out their funds to their cards or bank accounts. This is when we charge them the equivalent of 1% of a withdrawal fee in AGT token (similar to when users load their cards).
5.   Ordering cards, POS terminals, printing paper rolls or any physical merchant’s accessories can be paid by AGT tokens; this would immediately add value to the tokens.
6.   Agate Token Generator, as described in its section, allows everyone to create their own customised tokens. To do this, they should pay a one-off fee of 50 AGT. This can be done through Agate Token Generator GUI or Agate API Suite.

7.   Any transaction, either inside iFiat Ecosystem or when businesses or developers create their own tokens, should be paid by AGT coin (like gas in Ethereum) which is 0.01 AGT.

8.   Once we switch to Agate’s main net from our existing test net, all AGT coins would be minable, and as we use the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) method in our blockchain, and miners needs to buy a minimum of 50,000 AGT coins or create a public mining pool in order to start mining, this also would highly increase the demand for AGT coin.

9.   Once our smart contract implementation is finished, in order to execute it in Agate, blockchain users need to pay in AGT coin.

10.   B2B income, by having a comprehensive API suite, the whole suite can be used as white-label platform for those, first, who have their own customers and want to avoid banking fees (e.g., big supermarkets or petrol station chains) or companies who have their own customer acquisition methods and go to market strategy or enterprises who want to integrate Agate with their existing environment and application or even ERP. While they can generate their own iFiat tokens to make sure there is no other token issuer, all operations inside Agate blockchain would work only with AGT token, and also they should buy a API call package for each request as in the pricing table below plus 50 AGT tokens for initial account setup fee, which we will waive for the first 50 companies to get the ball rolling!


Thank you for detailed answer,seems like you covered everything Smiley

Great to see that everything is so detailed and well thought off.Shows how good team and this project is, optimistic about the future of the project.

It's especially nice that you explained in detail and with an example... Thanks!

By developing a marketing strategy is a vital for any project/business.  Without one, your effort to attract customers are likely to be haphazard and inefficient.

An interesting idea, just wonder how do you differentiate from other existing payment systems and how would you ensure that there will be a big enough adoption of your system in order to make it sustainable in the long run?

What will be the main AGATE  source of revenue?

Currently there are 10 direct utilisation for Agate and in-direct potential  in enormous because as an platform or blockchain protocol thousands of developers and business can use Agate to generate their own tokens and run their very own crypto economy on Agate,
here I copied 10 direct utilisation from WP:

------
Unlike most newly generated tokens of ICOs in blockchain apps or software with no or only one income stream, one of the value propositions of the AGT token is that it has several revenue streams to ensure our token holders have a solid, continuous value-added token. While we always work to add as many as possible new strong income streams for AGT token, here are some examples for the current Agate token:

1.   All exchange orders between different cryptocurrencies have a fixed cost of 1.00 AGT
2.   Any trades by Agate Trade Bot at the time of execution would cost 1.00 AGT
3.   Although exchanging cryptocurrency to any iFiat token is free, if users want to load their cards or request bank transfers, Agate will charge them an equivalent of 1% of the transferred order in AGT token.
 
Code:
Example: Tim wants to transfer $500 worth of BTC to his card. He exchanged 1 BTC on the best exchange rate (1 BTC = 10,000 iUSD), and his iBucket would charge iUSD 500 (no additional exchange or transfer fee) in the next step; he wants to load $500 to his card.
As 1 AGT ~ $0.079 and 1% of $500 is $5, he needs 63.291139 AGT to authorise this order; so let’s say the value of AGT token increases by 10X, and each token is worth $0.79; to do so, he needs 6.329113 AGT to do the same, so it’s always better to buy and keep more AGT token to save more on Agate fees.

4.   In order to bootstrap the Agate iFiat ecosystem while there is no transaction fee to buy any item inside Agate iFiat Ecosystem, for example, customers can go to any Agate Merchant, either in store or online, and pay 100 iUSD to buy some things, and merchants will receive the exact 100 iUSD, which they can use to pay to their suppliers who are also in this ecosystem, or they may prefer to cash out their funds to their cards or bank accounts. This is when we charge them the equivalent of 1% of a withdrawal fee in AGT token (similar to when users load their cards).
5.   Ordering cards, POS terminals, printing paper rolls or any physical merchant’s accessories can be paid by AGT tokens; this would immediately add value to the tokens.
6.   Agate Token Generator, as described in its section, allows everyone to create their own customised tokens. To do this, they should pay a one-off fee of 50 AGT. This can be done through Agate Token Generator GUI or Agate API Suite.

7.   Any transaction, either inside iFiat Ecosystem or when businesses or developers create their own tokens, should be paid by AGT coin (like gas in Ethereum) which is 0.01 AGT.

8.   Once we switch to Agate’s main net from our existing test net, all AGT coins would be minable, and as we use the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) method in our blockchain, and miners needs to buy a minimum of 50,000 AGT coins or create a public mining pool in order to start mining, this also would highly increase the demand for AGT coin.

9.   Once our smart contract implementation is finished, in order to execute it in Agate, blockchain users need to pay in AGT coin.

10.   B2B income, by having a comprehensive API suite, the whole suite can be used as white-label platform for those, first, who have their own customers and want to avoid banking fees (e.g., big supermarkets or petrol station chains) or companies who have their own customer acquisition methods and go to market strategy or enterprises who want to integrate Agate with their existing environment and application or even ERP. While they can generate their own iFiat tokens to make sure there is no other token issuer, all operations inside Agate blockchain would work only with AGT token, and also they should buy a API call package for each request as in the pricing table below plus 50 AGT tokens for initial account setup fee, which we will waive for the first 50 companies to get the ball rolling!


Thank you for detailed answer,seems like you covered everything Smiley

Great to see that everything is so detailed and well thought off.Shows how good team and this project is, optimistic about the future of the project.

It's especially nice that you explained in detail and with an example... Thanks!

We rarely see such detailed answers ... thanks for clarification! Smiley

Thanks for taking the effort and writing such a detailed post answering a lot of possible questions. Regarding this part: "While they can generate their own iFiat tokens to make sure there is no other token issuer, all operations inside Agate blockchain would work only with AGT token, and also they should buy a API call package for each request as in the pricing table below plus 50 AGT tokens for initial account setup fee, which we will waive for the first 50 companies to get the ball rolling!"

so if the company would opt for iFiat of their own customers would still have to purchase it with AGT?

I think the point is that it is similar to PayPal and that might ensure it's popularity and adoption.
