Sandblock ICO (SAT)

Protocol to connect brands & customers


Sandblock is creating a decentralised protocol to connect brands and customers together using Smart Contracts. We are also developing a mobile application (alpha available on iOS and Android) for customers and a dashboard and analytics platform for businesses. Each business creates its own Branded token on top of the Satisfaction token (SAT) and can give it as a reward to its customers for their loyalty, feedback (reviews, surveys...) or engagement (contests, games...). By joining the ecosystem, businesses have access to tons of analytics about their customers across all merchants. Branded tokens are tradable with each other at a one to one ratio, they can also be converted to SAT for other use but this induces a 50% loss of the underlying value.
