About APPICS

A NEXT GENERATION SOCIAL NETWORK
 
 EMPOWERED USERS
APPICS is a next generation, reward-based social media APP that lets users monetize the time and creativity they spend on social media. Users are in control of their information and transactions.

CURRENCY CREATION
The APPICS token (XAP) is the cryptocurrency of the APPICS network. Every time the “like” button is used, coins are created and rewards get distributed in a fair way.

DECENTRALIZED BANKING SOLUTION
APPICS makes sending currency as easy as sending a message: The peer-to-peer transactions are received instantly, without going through a third party, due to the nature of blockchain technology.

GLOBAL REVOLUTION
For people living in third world countries, earning cryptocurrency via content sharing has the potential to change lives on a global scale.

TRANSPARENT ECOSYSTEM
Since submissions and transactions are manifested on the blockchain with a timestamp, foundations and donors will benefit tremendously - trust can be restored.

TOKEN UTILITY
The APPICS coin functions as a reward for users of the platform. The utility of the token is based on contribution in form of „upvoting“ and sharing of content. The more coins an account holds, the higher its influence on the platform.
