“CrowdForce” Announces Launching of ICO For Their Blockchain Based Agency Banking & Data Collection Platform
Mahe – In 2016 Alphabet’s CEO, Eric Schmidt predicted that “the next $ 100 billion company will be driven by crowd-based solutions.” CrowdForce is leveraging blockchain, mobile technology and a crowdsourced agent network to bring the next billion consumers to the digital economy.
The journey to “CrowdForce” began three years ago when we at MobileForms identified two of the major problems facing Emerging markets was the inability to gather reliable and verifiable data (micro tasks) and a means of delivering financial and digital services to remote communities (microservices).
Developed countries across the world have agencies and large infrastructures which gather and verify data, and these took years as well as billions of dollars to establish. Emerging markets do not have the luxury of years and billions of dollars required to catch up with the infrastructures that have been put in place in developed countries. The “CrowdForce” Team realised that what they need are tiny collections of humans and devices spread out across the countries building trust and working together in a collaborative manner to bring everyone to the digital economy.
This realization birthed the movement that is “CrowdForce”. The “CrowdForce” platform uses mobile technology and the largest agent network to help businesses, banks, Digital wallets and exchange companies scale to the next billion underserved population in emerging market.
The “CrowdForce” project provides a viable solution for market research, economic development, financial inclusion and blockchain penetration in Emerging markets by using online and offline mobile technology and a network of merchants and agents that are properly empowered and incentivized to render micro tasks and services in their area.
The “CrowdForce” field agent network works with the “CrowdForce” platform which allows businesses, banks, digital wallets, crypto exchanges and developers to set up micro tasks and services. These will instantly be made available to all agents on the network via the application on the merchants’ phones or POS systems.
The “CrowdForce” Pre-sale begins on September 15, 2018, while the Tokensale commences on November 12, 2018 and will run for 4 weeks. The goal is to secure funding to finalize the development of the “CrowdForce” platform, as well as drive adoption of the platform across all Emerging markets.

The London and Los Angeles-based artist once dubbed “the next Andy Warhol” by actor Michael Caine, Lincoln Townley, has sold an entire collection of works in exchange for cryptocurrency via popular social media platform Wechat.
Contemporary Artist Sells Entire Collection for Cryptocurrency Using Social Media
Contemporary British artist, Lincoln Townley, has made headlines after selling an entire collection of work for cryptocurrency using Wechat.
The artist, who regularly uses social media to distribute his work, recently stated in an interview: “I’m always looking at ways to do things differently in my route to market.”
“There is no two ways about it,” Mr. Townley continued, “The people who invest in Bitcoin are without doubt speculators – they are looking at something with more of a risk. But that’s why I thought to myself, these are the sort of people that would be interested in purchasing my art as an extension to their investment portfolio.”
“The best thing is it fuels my belief that galleries are secondary to an artist’s success – they just need to look at galleries as another string to their bow. There are so many other ways to get sales with technology,” Mr. Townley added.
Decentralizing the Art Industry
Mr. Townley states that his building of a network of art buyers who contact him directly through social media is “shaking up the art world,” emphasizing the elimination of middlemen in the brokering of art transactions.
Mr. Townley asserts that a number of cryptocurrency investors are also art collectors, stating that many of them are “looking for a tangible asset they can put this newfound currency into.”
The artist expects that cryptocurrency prices will continue to rise, stating: “I think there is a huge market for expansion, with it being something that is going to inflate in value. Therefore, inflating in value will give you more of a vehicle to purchase art in the future.”
