A blend of eHarmony & Credit Karma- if it matched people to cryptocurrencies that fit their values, interests & needs.
Maintaining the integrity of cryptocurrencies during mass adoption is absolutely paramount. People should have the right to find coins that fit their values, interests and needs with access to all options; with transparency and security. New users will look to the banking industry as a lighthouse when they start to offer cryptocurrency services but only because they are an established fixture in society. The question is, what kind of service and information will they get? This is why CryptoDossier will be on the blockchain, and why you should pay close attention to this project.
#1 question from new cryptocurrency users "What should I buy and how much?"
Cryptocurrencies are rapidly gaining attention in the public eye. Bitcoin skyrockets past new market cap milestones almost weekly. Prospective users hear about cryptocurrencies and their curiosity inevitably leads to a learning process which can easily become quite overwhelming. How can they buy cryptocurrencies, conveniently and safely? “There's more than one Bitcoin?” “What is a smart contract?” ”What is the point of all these currencies, anyway?” Cryptodossier greatly simplifies the learning curve and aids in the cryptocurrency selection process by matching prospective users to cryptocurrencies based on their values, interests, and needs. The user friendly matching process starts by asking about one's interests after which they can answer questions to further refine their results. If there is an unfamiliar term, users can simply scroll over the word and a pop up box with an explanation will appear! This works similar to a dating site profile, but for financial purposes - almost like a blend of Credit Karma & eHarmony. In order to facilitate this matching process, comprehensive information on all cryptocurrencies in active use will be collected in order to create a 'dossier' on each. The resulting database and matching process will serve not only first time cryptocurrency users looking for a helpful starting point, but even intermediate and seasoned users looking for new leads and exciting opportunities!
Our goal is to lower the barrier to entry for cryptocurrencies through education and user friendliness. There are currently no services (we’ve identified) that accommodate our target market of new cryptocurrency users in the way we wish to serve them. We aim to be a launch pad for cryptocurrency use by educating users about their options and preferences as they are introduced to them. Beginners and experienced users alike will find it easy to develop their best cryptocurrency portfolio yet with the help of Cryptodossier!
• Ability to scroll over new terms and pop up box with explanation will appear
• Hiding matches
• Suggestions for cryptos that similar users are using
• Users sorted into personality types for cryptocurrencies- to explain to users why they were matched and overall analysis about their habits and beliefs.
• Match is given a risk rating – (high, medium, low) – but the background of the match cards have the color of their risk- (red- yellow- green).
• Match cards will show when last updated e.g., (6 hours ago). So user knows their matches are still relevant. In case they have any deal breakers e.g., a holistic practitioner wants matches with no ties to pharmaceutical companies.
This is just the beginnning!
Premium members will be able to hide matches, add deal-breakers, and get matched to the complete listing of coins, in addition to more matches per month.
I’m Nicole. The Founder and Chief Architect of Cryptodossier! An entrepreneur at heart, as well as an idealist and futurist. I entered the cryptocurrency and blockchain space in March 2017. I fell down the rabbit hole that is cryptos after witnessing a community, thriving & surviving using bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in New Hampshire. This was in June 2016, I was hooked, but where would I begin? Eventually, I decided if I ever wanted to get into blockchain and cryptocurrencies, I would have to teach myself. Since then, I’ve been engaged in independent studies relating to this field, roughly full time!
It has been an interesting journey to say the least. Residing west of Milwaukee, I drive up to 20 hours per week (107 miles one way) to the plentiful meet ups in Chicago. This has been done despite obstacles. I was starting to expand a business idea in 2013, when an attempt was made on my life by an extremely troubled landlord. Causing PTSD, among other setbacks. Needless to say, I was unable to continue with my business ventures or work in general for a significant period of time. Four years have passed and I've made substantial progress since then. In 2015, I enrolled to Carroll University with a founder’s scholarship. While there, representing Carroll University in an incubator for college entrepreneurs called The Commons. This entrepreneurial incubator allowed students to work on a team for 10 weeks ending with a pitch to venture capitalists.
Now, almost a year into my studies, I have a new goal. This goal is Cryptodossier. A website geared to help new cryptocurrency users, especially with mass adoption on the horizon! However, due to the aforementioned incident, I lack sufficient savings to self-fund. My basic living expenses are covered, but nothing more. I can deal with some obstacles as they arrive, but do not have easy access to a bank loan, especially without recent work history. The reason an ICO was not launched is because of the hurdles for that as well. If I can not get a simple bank loan, there is no way I could launch an ICO. ICOs involve a ton of requirements, and I heard it's one way to set your life on fire. I believe in cryptocurrency for it's potential to help those who lack economic mobility. People such as myself, who aspire to change their situation when traditional avenues are closed to them.
The purpose of this kickstarter is to pay for expenses which are required to run a business. Advertising expenses, development for site, travel expenses to Chicago, business cell phone, business softwares, and other expenses that may not be visible at this moment. The goal is to get a minimum viable product (MVP) website for investors. At this point I do not have a MVP to get investors and need money to get there. Plus, it is imperative attending meet ups to network and expand the development team.
As a cryptocurrency entrepreneur, It's about preparing for mass adoption with a kick-ass idea!
If this kickstarter makes sense to you, don't just wish CryptoDossier the best of luck and be on your way, pledge or share this!
Risks and challenges
The main challenge would be not meeting the target goal funding. Although, the risk for building a website is substantially lower than that of a gadget; there is still risk. Challenges will be surmounted; especially, with a full time founder.
