What is SnapCity?

SnapCity is the latest geo-location adventure game built on the blockchain and coming to Android and iOS soon.

View Challenges

View challenges on the map view in the application. You can see your current location and nearby challenges. Click on a challenge to read more information about it, including images and who set the challenge.

Complete Challenges

Go to the location and take a picture. Taking a picture confirms that you went to the location and completing challenges gives you SnapTokens. You can then use these tokens to challenge your friends, the public or redeem them in nearby businesses.

Redeem Tokens

Nearby businesses can advertise on SnapCity by accepting SnapTokens as discount towards their goods and services, we've developed a simple interface for businesses to use to accept SnapTokens, since the tokens conform to the ERC20 protocol they can be stored in most Ethereum wallets.

Send

Use your tokens to challenge your friends or the general public. You are in return rewarded for how popular your challenge was, as determined by the number of entries (for public challenges only). It is very easy to share your challenges on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Compete

Race to be the first to complete public challenges around cities. The first to complete a public challenge is the winner of the tokens. Explore your city and the world whilst doing so.

Blockchain

Our Blockchain based solution ensures that tokens are not able to be spent more than once, rewards users for verifying challenges and provides a transparent and decentralised social media game.

FAQ

SnapTokens allow users to create challenges on SnapCity. For general users it's mainly for fun, you can challenge your friends to do something crazy. You can also create public challenges that are visible to everyone that is near you. The first person to complete the challenge gets the tokens as a reward and the creator of the challenge is rewarded depending on how popular the challenge was (how many entries there were). Users can also use the tokens as discounts at businesses, businesses can then use the tokens to create public challenges bringing more people to the business.
We consider games such as Pokemon Go to be one of our main competitors. On Pokemon Go businesses would pay $0.99 for a lure to draw Pokemon and hence users to the business's location. Our SnapTokens start at roughly $0.06 and only a fraction of a token is necessary to create a challenge for a business, as such we think as the app becomes more popular and the number of users increases the value of the tokens will definitely go up!
SnapTokens will not currently be available to be used as full payment for items, as such they will only be able to be used as discounts at businesses. From our survey of businesses and attractions across Europe, we found that a considerable percentage of revenues were passed to third-party companies for advertising. The highest figure that we recorded was a large booking company charging 40% commision on ticket sales. Therefore, businesses accepting the tokens can be seen as equivalent to paying the commision but in SnapCity the commision goes back to the user, rather than a third-party. Of course, the business then also has the tokens which can be used to create challenges and further increase their revenues. When SnapTokens become more liquid and are traded on various exchanges we will be offer businesses the opportunity to liquidate their tokens when they recieve into fiat currencies that they are more familiar with.
We are currently in discussion with several exchanges about listing our tokens on them. As of yet, we are unable to tell you exactly which exchanges they are. Be sure to sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know.
The tokens have already been created (contracts have been deployed). As such all you need to do is go to the ICO sale section here, and send your Ethereum to the contract address, add the contract address to your Ethereum wallet and the tokens will be there with 30 seconds.

As a business, it's easy. Either buy SnapTokens in the ICO, wait for them to become available on various exchanges or start accepting them in-store. As a regular user, buy the tokens in the ICO or wait for them to become available on exchanges.
