as you said that your pre sale have just started, i want to know what is the hard cap of your pre sale? and how much does it cost each? what is the difference of your prices between the pre sale and the official token sale?
Yes, our pre-sale is ongoing, with a $3M hard cap.

Pre-sale price: 1 ZIPT = 0.03 USD.

There are total of 1 billion ZIP tokens, of which max 100 million (10%) will be sold in the pre-sale.

Moreover, each pre-sale contributor gets a 30% bonus, which is distributed during the following 9 months after the pre-sale. Please see more in our website.

The details of the main sale are not defined yet (schedule, pricing etc). However, the 30% bonus is available only for pre-sale contributors.

thank you so much dev because you responded quickly.. so are you gonna release the product first before scheduling the official tokens sale? and that 30% bonus will be distributed WITHIN the 9 months? or after  9 months?
We aim to launch the platform and release ZIP token in March 2018.

Main sale could be before this, but as mentioned, it's to be decided. Let's first see how this ongoing pre-sale goes Smiley

30% pre-sale bonus is released in three batches after ZIP token is released:
10% 3 months after token released
10% 6 months after token released
10% 9 months after token is released
Pre-sale contributors are eligible for the bonus at the time of its release if they still hold the full amount of ZIP tokens purchased in the pre-sale. This is to encourage long-term hodling and support of the project.

In short, as long as i hold my tokens from the time i have purchased it, i will get 10% of it every three months, right?

Yes correct. Every three months, three times in total.

I would like to know when this operating system will be released so that we can try it out. This operating system working on the blockchain I think will work wonders for the users and the crypto economy as well. So I wish the company all the success it needs for it to prosper.
We aim to release the first version of Zipper in March 2018. Selected ZIP token pre-sale contributors will be the first ones to have access to the platform to trial it out. We'll deliver them Sony Xperia X smartphones with Zipper platform pre-installed.

Thanks for your encouraging words!

So this is a blockchain O.S, you are making another kind of operating system, man this will be a billion dollar industry, I wonder what is your advantages in the likes of Sirins LAb?

As a start, we've actually built a full mobile OS before, know how to do it at scale and in significantly cheaper devices. This is not a full mobile OS though; more like a mobile experience.

Would you like to have your friends pick up a Zipper device for 5 USD up front and experience the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain with ease?

That's we're heading.

Not 999 USD exclusion-of-many prices.

So to put it simply, you're going to make it economically possible to be bought by ordinary individuals. Good concept.
By the way, what's your progress (now) in creating the software, are you in the plot, in the middle or you have a software that is ready to be launched after the crowdsale?


Yes, it's very important that we're able to offer Zipper for people across different price points. Actually, we see the biggest potential for blockchain based services in the emerging markets, where people are not locked in to the current legacy systems such as banks.

As a further background, we know from experience that offering your own OS to ODMs and OEMs is an extremely hard sell. Firstly, smartphone manufacturers and vendors want to control the user experience (look and feel, pre-installed apps etc.) of their devices. Secondly, working with a new OS requires a significant engineering effort from the manufacturers.

Thus, for device manufacturers to adopt a new OS, the business case has to significant (read: it should bring them tens of millions of new customers). You can think it also this way: excluding Apple, how many of the top 30 smartphone brands globally are using other OS than their own customised Android?

Our approach is a bit different: instead of trying to replace the OS, Zipper aims to co-exist with it. This way, device manufacturers can still use the OS of their choice, and enhance it with Zipper and its value-adding features. End-users will get the best of both worlds. Moreover, for the manufacturers, pre-installing Zipper experience to their devices will be almost as easy as pre-installing a normal app; a much more lightweight process than adopting a totally new mobile operating system.

Why did you choose to co-exist rather than completely isolate your operating system, I wonder if companies like the google and microft will let you do that and that can arise to many issues and bugs because co-exixting or combining two operating system is quite hard. So this is just like a swithcher app? Where you can switch what operating system will you choose to use.
IMHO, I think if you can accumulate a decent budget it is better to ake your own, very own operating system, not just co-exist with other O.S.

Hi theunbeatable,

For the reasons mentioned above. We could build an own independent OS, but it would be very difficult to scale it to hundreds of millions of daily users. We know this industry pretty well and have been down that road before (built our own devices + OS and partnered with ODMs & OEMs).

From go-to-market point of view, we see it more feasible to tap into the existing 2+ billion Android users from day 1. Our aim, after all, is to provide people around the world as easy and safe access to blockchain based services as possible.

In the future, Zipper might evolve to a full-blown OS, providing all the daily services a user might need. But it'll take some time to get there, and we believe that aiming to provide core decentralized services to millions of current smartphone users in an easy and safe way is a good start Smiley
