Pigzbe (WLO) ICO Review – ICO Token News
Our goal is to help children and their families learn the principles of 21st-century finance through cryptocurrency savings and hands-on play. Financial literacy will be an important 21st-century skill, and finding ways to introduce earning, saving and managing money principles at a young age will help children begin to develop these necessary skills. Pigzbe is a part physical and part digital piggy-wallet for children aged 6 and up, powered by Wollo, your child’s first cryptocurrency.
Think of Pigzbe as a friendly, tangible financial assistant that will teach children the principles of modern money in an exciting and safe system that harnesses children’s natural drive to learn through self-correcting, practical experimentation. Wollo is Pigzbe’s native token, and when used with the Pigzbe digital wallet and a physical device, provides an effective, age-appropriate learning experience for children, while enabling families to come together as microfinancing networks.
What is Pigzbe?
Pigzbe is a decentralised application that allows people to create their own enclosed, autonomous financial networks and to exchange money within them. Decentralisation means that no central authority is needed for operation. Anybody can participate and the degree of decentralisation increases as the number of independent participants grows. The complexity of linking existing banking systems causes delays and inefficiencies which increase costs to a level that limits practical minimum transaction sizes.
By employing distributed ledger technology, we circumvent the current convoluted, centralised global payment infrastructure, creating efficient and trustless networks. The back-end code that powers the DApp runs autonomously on the decentralised network, rather than on centralised networks such as cloud hosting. The DApp builds on the core technology through Smart Contracts and User Interfaces in order to provide some utility.
The solution is Pigzbe, a connected physical and digital piggy-wallet, supported by Wollo, a decentralised cryptocurrency for families and children aged 6 and up. Enabled by Wollo, the Pigzbe experience (Token + App + Hardware) is designed to replace physical money normally stored in a traditional piggy-bank with a digital alternative that caters to modern globalised families while maintaining all of the important kinesthetic benefits of learning through hands-on play.
We’re reinventing the piggy-bank by transforming it into a piggy-wallet. Think of Pigzbe as a tool to support parents in teaching children the principles of earning, saving and managing money in an exciting and non-threatening way, while providing them with an entry point into the world of cryptocurrencies.
Wollo Utility Token (WLO)
Wollo is the Pigzbe network’s native token, and it enables the saving and playing experience within our application. A specific community can be built around Wollo, connecting children with family and loved ones. Wollo ownership fosters and reinforces a higher level of affinity with the Pigzbe application and significantly increases the strength of network effects, promoting user growth and loyalty. Generating our own token ensures Pigzbe users are the ones in charge.
Following acceptance from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), Wollo is planned to distribute part of its decision-making process in the project amongst the community of users. Holding Wollo would then entitle users to suggest and vote on proposals for the project development roadmap, helping make decisions on which new features to implement or discard. Supplying our own token also allows for the development of strong network schemes that promote dissemination and sale of Pigzbe devices, the proliferation of family networks, and the use of Wollo.
A secondary market will allow users to buy and sell tokens without having to go through credit cards or other banking institutions. Wollo tokens will be tradable on the SDEX decentralised exchange. SDEX is a distributed exchange, built on distributed ledger technology, providing transparency and safety not possible with privately controlled centralised exchanges. It will be possible to exchange Wollo with an ever-growing list of currencies through SDEX.
Digital currencies, including BTC and ETH, are supported along with fiat currencies such as JPY and EUR. An increasingly wide range of digital and fiat currencies will be supported as the network expands. Pigzbe will pursue and fund listings for Wollo on established, reputable exchanges across the world. This will serve the dual purpose of increasing liquidity and raising the profile of Wollo ICO tokens.
The Pigzbe app is built using modern open-source technologies. All code is developed in public view in our GitHub repository and, as such, is open to public audit and contributions. The use of the React Native framework for iOS and Android apps and Electron for MacOS and Windows versions means there will be one core codebase across all platforms, helping to ensure both the security and consistency of the experience. Releases will be certified and published through the relevant app stores for each platform, ensuring integrity and easy access to updates.
The front-end of the Pigzbe app comprises the Pigzbe hardware wallet and mobile and desktop apps through which users can perform all actions. The app provides a view of the state of the family’s network and tools to mutate that state via transactions and smart contracts.
