A NEXT GENERATION SOCIAL NETWORK
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.
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.
For people living in third world countries, earning cryptocurrency via content sharing has the potential to change lives on a global scale.
Since submissions and transactions are manifested on the blockchain with a timestamp, foundations and donors will benefit tremendously - trust can be restored.
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.
Idea & Concept. Inspired by the first social network on a blockchain (Steemit), the founder team of APPICS realized the potential in the merge of a social media application with blockchain technology and a network of highly influential people.
TEAM RECRUITING. In a conference at the HQ of marketing agency WeCare4U, the art director, iOS and Android developer found belief in the concept and joined the team. Shortly after, a cooperation with Steemit.Inc, our blockchain team naturally evolved. In addition, an advisory team was appointed.
PROOF OF CONCEPT. In early 2017 the concept of APPICS was first written down in form of a white paper.

WHITE PAPER RELEASE. The APPICS white paper was released together with the website and is meant to explain the concept in detail for anybody without prior crypto-knowledge.
