WeMark

Wemark is a project which is fighting to give photographers, painters, designers and other creative minded people back control over their own work. Using blockchain technology to facilitate a direct communication between creator and customer, revenue can be greatly increased, to the mutual benefit of all parties in a transaction.

About the Project

Nowadays, there is the constant threat of plagiarism and theft of all kinds of content. This applies especially in the case of visual content. This is where stock agencies the like of Getty, Shutterstock, etc. have traditionally stepped in to protect the creator. This works and they do a great job. It is however, expensive.

Stock agencies can take up to 85% of the revenue from creators. This is unsustainable for many. Enter, Wemark. By providing the blockchain based platform where creators and end users can freely connect, the possibilities are wide open.

  • Streamlining the process of communication means that the exact images will be more readily available on the customer’s side.
  • Cutting out the costly intermediaries and their associated fees means that all stakeholders in a deal can be financially benefitted.
  • Peer-to-Peer transactions which are timely and above all secured and authenticated in a transparent manner through the use of smart contracts.

The ICO

The Wemark ICO is set to run from May 7th through to June 21st. The token price during the ICO period is set to be $0.20 per 1WMK. The project has a softcap in place of $1,500,000USD and a hardcap of $8,000,000USD. This amount can be contributed to by using Ethereum only.

With a prototype already available, this project has its eyes set on a global future in a sector where it is greatly required. The project will be ably assisted by a highly experienced team with vast experience worldwide throughout a variety of industries, including advisory members from the traditional stock agencies.

The Token

The token which will be known as WMK on exchanges is an ERC20 standard token on the Ethereum network. There is set to be a maximum token supply of 135,000,000 WMK. Of this number, 38% will be available for purchase during the ICO period. The largest secondary portion (37.5%) will go towards community rewards and economy scaling, with 23% left over for a combination of advisors and founding members.
