5. What made Lucyd decide to do an ICO instead of more traditional funding routes?

  1. Blockchain’s promise is the decentralization of trust, potentially enabling value exchange without intermediaries in a democratized ecosystem. It provides the potential for financial transactions to be verified and cleared without the need for a trusted third party sitting between market participants. Removing intermediaries reduces costs and complexity and should enhance security, while also enabling a freer exchange of value and services.
  2. Blockchain offers a number of exciting opportunities, including secure peer to peer transactions. In blockchain we saw the incredible potential to develop the Lucyd platform, through our token generation event, where we will launch our AR utility token called LCD. It also provides enhanced functionality for an AR content ecosystem, which through the Lucyd Lab blockchain can grow rapidly and be community-regulated. Our blockchain will let developers mine new LCD by creating quality content, with more LCD being released as the content gets more positive ratings. Downrated content can be automatically removed from the ecosystem, and developers can gain influence and prominence in the ecosystem by continually creating well-rated content.
  3. LCD has a number of vital functions in the Lucyd platform. It will allow highly secure, rapid, P2P transactions on the Lucyd network. For example, you could send LCD to your colleague simply by speaking the command in-Lens. By having both the medium of access, and the hardware wallet itself in a single unit, we believe highly secure and convenient cryptocurrency transactions will be possible.
  4. By letting developers mine tokens with quality content, and rewarding users for community-building actions, we believe our AR platform can grow much faster with the blockchain than traditional app ecosystems. LCD can be used for purchases of smartglasses, Lucyd native content and in-lens transactions, creating a decentralized micro-economy around our hardware platform.
  5. A token generation event is much faster than traditional fundraising methods, which is especially important in the rapidly-advancing AR space.
  6. A final reason for using a token generation event to raise contributions for development of our smartglasses, is that the typical token purchasers are tech-savvy and more likely to be an early adopter of our next-gen smartglasses.
