VIBERATE ICO  |  WHITEPAPER  |  LIVE SERVICE  |  SLACK  |  FACEBOOK  |  TWITTER  |  TELEGRAM





▄▄▄
WHAT IS VIBERATE


Viberate is a platform that joins the entire live music ecosystem under one roof. Currently it acts as IMDB for live music, where profiles of musicians are ranked according to their online popularity. It is built and curated by the Viberate user community. Our end game is to disrupt the music industry as we know it by becoming the biggest global talent marketplace. Viberate’s database, community, holistic approach and marketplace features are the four elements that make its service unique and revolutionary.


▄▄▄
VISION


Our vision is to revolutionize the way musicians are presented and booked as well as to open the world of live
music to anyone who wants to participate in it by decentralizing discovery and booking processes with the use of the blockchain technology.


▄▄▄
THE BIGGEST CURATED LIVE MUSIC DATABASE IN THE WORLD


Featuring more than 120,000 musicians, 40,000 music venues and 60,000 events.





The profiles are daily updated from a variety of social media and streaming channels, ticketing services and online artist calendars.


The profiles feature


- Official social media links
- User ratings
- Daily updated stats from all major social media and streaming channels, including fan growth, user engagement and fan geo distribution
- Recent content (audio, video, photos)
- Gig dates with ticket links
- Contact info


▄▄▄
A DECENTRALIZED COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICE, FUELED BY THE VIBE TOKEN


Viberate has always been decentralized in its core. The database has always been open for public, so anyone could add new artists. We managed to build the database we have today with the help of over 50,000 contributors and we will always keep it open for anyone to take part in maintaining its relevance.


Such level of decentralization allows Viberate to be on top of rapidly moving trends in the music industry. Using the blockchain technology to crowdsource the curating process of the information in musician, venue and event profiles is the only reasonable and rational way to keep the database up to date and relevant.





Those 50,000 Viberate contributors didn’t get anything in return for their contributions. Now the blockchain technology allows us to reward them for their work with Vibes (VIB) from our bounty allocation.
The Vibe represents the atomic unit of our crowdsourced concept, and the service’s growth and relevance depends on it.


The Vibe will become a go-to currency for the music industry as a whole. Besides using the tokens on the Viberate platform, there will also be an array of smart contracts connected with music industry where Vibes will be used as a core currency.
One of our main purposes is investing into the growth of our service and rewarding community efforts with Vibes from our bounty pool. Scheme below illustrates the Vibe’s circle of life.





▄▄▄
THE FIRST EVER BLOCKCHAIN-BASED LIVE MUSIC MARKETPLACE


With the database and communication channels in place, our platform enables the implementation of a live music marketplace on both, B2B (musician-event organizers) as well on B2C (ticketing, crowdfunding live performances) levels.





>>OUR PRODUCT IS ALREADY LIVE AND KICKING WITH A LIVELY GROWING COMMUNITY OF ARTISTS, BOOKING AGENTS, MANAGERS AND FANS WAITING FOR YOU TO JOIN THEM.


▄▄▄
TEAM


The team behind the project is a combination of experienced managers, event organizers, developers and cryptocurrency experts. View team members with their LinkedIn profiles here.


▄▄▄
MARKET





- According to a research conducted by CISAC and UNESCO, the music industry has an annual turnover of $250 billion USD.
- Live performances take up to one third of that amount.
- There are around 50 million music events taking place globally each year.
- While represented artists account for a small fraction of a percent, millions of smaller artists are unrepresented. Their fees range from less than $100 all the way to a couple thousand USD.
- The live music sector is growing rapidly, due to a technological development, which allows people to engage in music easier than before (it only takes a Mac and a YouTube tutorial to become a DJ).


An estimation, based on the above numbers predicts the addressable market of $35B per year in unrepresented artist fees.


▄▄▄
BUSINESS MODELS


The platform allows for the implementation of different business models in a B2B as well as in a B2C segment.
On a B2B segment, Viberate can act as a marketplace, targeted advertising platform, networking tool and a data analytics service. On a B2C segment, we will tap into the ticketing business.


In the decentralized spirit, the revenue from all models will be shared with the participating community.


- MUSICIAN BOOKING COMMISSION
- ADVERTISING REVENUE
- ACCESS TO PREMIUM INDUSTRY CONTACTS
- TICKETING
- 3RD PARTY INTEGRATIONS


▄▄▄
ICO AND VIBE TOKENS DISTRIBUTION


One time VT emission is planned. Vibe Tokens will be distributed in the following way





The funds raised by crowdfunding will be used for Viberate.com’s further development, marketing campaigns, sales and PR, legal expenses and international expansion.


▄▄▄
ICO INVESTMENT ALLOCATION


The funds raised by crowdfunding will be used for Viberate.com’s further development, marketing campaigns, sales and PR, legal expenses and international expansion.





We strive to deliver our features as comprehensive as possible, which is why we made product and technical development a priority of our operations. This decision is strongly reflected in our investment allocation strategy that is divided into two phases.


The development cap defines the maximum amount of funds, needed to accomplish the development goals, defined in our roadmap. A portion of the funds is also reserved for the initial marketing campaign of a smaller scale.


The marketing cap is intended to cover the cost of marketing, namely direct sales and the launch of a global PR and advertising campaign. With the service firmly in place, our main goal in the second phase is to spread the word about Viberate all over the world.


▄▄▄
DISCOUNTS


Early backers will be rewarded with a discount. The discount rate will drop with every week, starting with 12% and ending with 0% on the last week of the ICO

How is Viberate different?
The most common question we’ve been getting lately is “How are you different from Musiconomi, Voise, Opus and other blockchain-based music startups?” (If you’re not familiar with any of the above, go ahead and read [this sweet review from Crowd Conscious](https://medium.com/@CrowdConscious/4-cryptocurrency-platforms-providing-relief-for-music-artists-part-2-5115c52d4869).)
___
It’s quite simple. The only thing we have in common is that we all try to solve problems today’s musicians are encountering on a daily basis.

The main difference is that those services operate in the recorded music segment, whereas Viberate focuses on the live segment.

Viberate - We're going strong
___
It's now less than one month to our crowd sale start. The feedback so far has been overwhelming and we are grateful and honored to see how much you like our story and vision.
So, what's new?
___
1. CURRENCY EXCHANGE FOR FIAT CONTRIBUTORS
The only way to contribute is by sending ether to the designated address, that will be published online right before the crowd sale starts. For those who sold it all or forgot to buy it, we will offer a quick exchange service. That's why we partnered up with Bitins, a respected fintech company from our hometown. They will allow you to wire fiat to their IBAN and get the equivalent of ether on your wallet (minus a small processing fee). For those, who still need more clarification about how to participate, we put together a set of how-to's on our Medium (step 1, step 2, step 3)
___
2. ONLY SPEAK CHINESE?
We don't. But our translation agency has people that do and they were kind enough to translate our whitepaper in record time. We went even further and put subtitles on our explainer video, so if you're reading this with the help of Google Translate - we've got your back!
___
3. VENUES COMING UP!
Half of the office is testing our new venue profiles, to make sure everything is perfect for when we launch them. Aside from browsing through more than 120 thousand musician profiles, you will soon (in a few weeks) have the opportunity to check music venues from all around the world. Are you stranded in Berlin and feel the need to go partying? We'll locate you and suggest venues based on your taste.
___
We'll make sure to send you a friendly reminder and a block number before we start the crowd sale, but we still suggest you set your calendar to the 5th of September. We'll accompany the launch with a party in our offices and UMEK will be playing live from our HQ via web stream, so don't miss the show!
___
Have an awesome weekend!
