WisePass (PASS) ICO Review – ICO Token News
WisePass Pte Ltd. is a Singaporean-based lifestyle platform connecting its members and its partners. The members are entitled to a free lunch, dinner, coffee or bottle of alcohol everyday from partners at five-star hotels, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. We started the business in January 2016 and membership sales officially began in August 2016. WisePass is currently available in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Bangkok, and Manila. We have set a target to open a new city every quarter in 2018, and we received funding of US$400,000 on September 2017 by Expara, a VC located in SIngapore. Currently Wisepass has seen a revenue growth of 50% on average for the past 6 quarters and has driven more than 20,000 visits to our partners thanks to our loyal user base. People can become a member by subscribing through the app for a flat monthly fee. In Vietnam, the fee ranges from $265 US to $700 US.
At WisePass, our goal is to ensure our members always have a good time through the technology that we’re building. From choosing a place to eat, enjoying a cup of coffee at Starbucks or drinks with some friends at a trendy bar, we aim to build the best recommendation platform of the future. For WisePass, lifestyle means to have a good time. From that specific credo, we ask ourselves everyday if selecting each individual partner will match consistently with our definition. When we started with drinks, we realized that having a good time can be many different things. We listened carefully to our members to know what they wish they could get on Wisepass in order to decide about the direction to take anytime we add a new service. As of now, we have yet to see a product on the market that is truly able to connect the crypto world with tangible products and services that you can consume everyday. By building our own cryptocurrency we believe that WisePass can become the main bridge between cryptocurrencies and the real economy. The aim is to become global, armed with the funds collected during the token sale and through rapid expansion both in terms of services and geography. The company has built a fastpaced roadmap for expansion in order to succeed. The ICO countdown has already begun for this token.
WisePass for Partners
Usually apps and businesses that try to partner with restaurants, hotels, and bars ask for a commission or a fee. An example of this is TabbedOut, a popular payment app for restaurant and bars whose main revenue stream relies not only on commission but also a monthly recurring fee charged to the establishments using their platform1 . Consequently, the partnership stipulations eat up the partners margins for the promise of a spike in sales. WisePass is an app where partners get traffic and sales without charging fees or a commission. WisePass buys directly from the partners. Period. That preserves the partners margin and makes the relationship truly sustainable.
WisePass for Brands
Brands selling in the HORECA segment (five-star hotels, restaurants, bars, and clubs) have a really hard time measuring the effectiveness of their marketing spend. They do events and partnerships and the process is usually labor intensive without a clear measure of how effective the campaign was. In fact, according to HubSpot’s 2017 State of Inbound Report, proving the ROI of marketing activities and generating traffic and leads are the leading marketing challenges for companies today. This has led marketing departments to become increasingly data driven2 . With WisePass, brands can set aside a specific amount of money and get a guaranteed, quantifiable ROI quickly across multiple countries and markets. Every marketer dreams of putting brands on a platform and cost effectively reaching a large number of qualified users in multiple countries with a significant amount of sales within a short amount of time. That is the vision of Wisepass—to build a platform that seamlessly makes life easier for users, brands, and marketers.
We have yet to see a service successfully implemented to the market that allows for cryptocurrency investors to use these earnings to seamlessly purchase tangible products and services in the real world. Using Ethereum’s blockchain technology, Wisepass will revolutionize the process of purchasing items with cryptocurrencies through the utility of PASS tokens which can purchase items to be consumed in everyday life. Currently, there are ICO tokens such as REQ which promise to apply cryptocurrencies in real world application however this is a payment system that requires merchants to first be willing to accept cryptocurrencies. It is also gambling on the possibility that companies such as Amazon will replace their current PayPal model for this new untested technology3. Wisepass is different in that we are operating in the here and the now. We are buying the products from our partners using either fiat or cryptocurrencies and this allows our users a guarantee that their purchases will be accepted. Wisepass members will be able to utilize their PASS tokens at certified Wispass merchants (merchants or companies that are part of the Wisepass membership platform) to purchase the items they wish. This is just the first step before we begin developing the technology that will allow ‘uncertified’ merchants to accept PASS tokens as a form of payment. Check ICO list to know more about ICOs.
