cosquare is a globally scalable social marketplace with the potential to transform how a generation of social media users shop. Serving consumers, influencers and brands, cosquare combines blockchain technology, social media and e-commerce to create a fun social shopping experience.
CSQ, cosquare’s own currency, run on the Ethereum public blockchain, is a pure payment token and acts as a medium of exchange for products sold on the cosquare social marketplace. CSQ thereby fulfils one of the core functions of money as a medium of exchange for goods or services. Our vision is to make CSQ the number one currency for online shopping.
The cosquare social marketplace is designed to empower people and liberate brands.
Every user is both a potential consumer and influencer with the power to earn CSQ to spend on the platform or exchange to fiat and cash out. Every user can influence the buying decision of another through their social activity and can discover (new influencers, products and brands), share, buy, earn and gift on the platform.
Each user is entirely in control of their own cosquare universe, following only the brands and influencers they love. Committed to creating a fully people-driven shopping experience, there is no advertising on the marketplace. cosquare will however give users the opportunity to opt in to monetise their own data in a transparent way, rewarding them with CSQ for data monetised through brands and publishers.
A simple gifting function lets users gift each other the products they love. A user can accept or decline a gift, while cosquare protects their data. Users can also send instant peer-to-peer transfers of CSQ.
cosquare liberates brands by facilitating them to sell direct-to-consumer, bypassing the traditional wholesale distribution model.
The platform becomes a brand’s social flagship and unlike on existing social media, direct conversion takes place within the ecosystem, without any adverse impact on user experience.
cosquare seeks to make cryptocurrency payments mainstream. The platform accepts its CSQ currency and major fiat and cryptocurrencies. This feature enables brands to tap into the massive value held in cryptocurrencies.

"Every user is both a potential consumer and influencer with the power to earn CSQ to spend on the platform or exchange to fiat and cash out."
Please explain clearly how you execute the part on cashing out with fiat?
"Hi Clemen. cosquare will partner with an exchange, allowing users (consumers and influencers) to exchange the CSQ earned on cosquare into fiat. Fiat payouts are processed through our payment service provider. Please let me know if you have further questions."
1. Which exchange?
2. Which payment service provider?

Highly commercial project that is targeting mass adoption. MVP isn't out yet. The gamification idea isn't original but it can work here with good execution.

Solid balanced team of Business and Technology members.
Market is very competitive so solid partnerships will help.
I would expect more social media and github activities in coming weeks.
Website is bit buggy - please sort it out.
MVP needs to be actually something working product not just Graphics.
Will update ratings in coming weeks if I see the progress.
Good luck team.
[Update] Vision+ after discussion with team. Will wait for MVP.

Team members are harmoniously well, but web site errors threaten the team's development capabilities.
I hope the MVP is fully functional.
This factor is very important because it enters a competitive market.

I like the concept of the project - the motivation of influencers to develop new brands. This project can give young designers a new market. There isn't information of the project's CEO on Linkedin. The prototype cannot be downloaded. I will follow the development of the project.

The team looks capable. The issue with the model of allowing everyone to earn rewards is that in reality the rewards are typically very small for the average user, and the interest eventually dissipates.
This is not financial advice or a recommendation to invest in this or any other ICO. Investors must perform their own due diligence and not rely on external ratings to make their final investment decisions. ICOs are risky and 100% loss of capital is possible.

Project is not a new idea and has a lot of competition. Would like to see their partners in terms of brands on board and influencers that can differentiate the project from others.

CoSquare’s team is well balanced, with members from various disciplines. The website is functional but it still needs work to iron out errors and bugs. Another plus point for the project is that they will accept fiat currencies as well. This will help them reach a larger audience base. I am eagerly waiting for a functional MVP.

It is not the first time we see a project trying to merge e commerce, social networking and influencing marketing features. I didin't see why this project will succeed where others have failed. How many people will use the platform is the real question. The 100 billion tokens is a number beyond me. Is there any reason that the number is that high? There is no soft cap, so that means the project will start anyway? The team looks big for that kind of project and the founder has no previous experience. Good for them for picking Switzerland to start their ICO.

Same old, same old. This type of project trying to merge divert sectors and creating an ecosystem based on a crypto asset has been floating around for a very long time. I can see that the team is quite solid but the success of such a project combines a lot of factors that are interdependent.

The team is quit big and have more or less experience in all fields. The vision is not new and a lot of projects try to be the social media platform for buying and selling activities. The website looks very cheap and I would change it. The prototype is just a side where you can scroll down pictures. I think it will be hard for them to succeed, because the competitors are already on the market.
I had a talk with Duco Hiensch and he showed me a great working product, where the middleman doesnt exist anymore. The app isnt at the App store yet. They will show the product after the ICO because of the competitors. That what I saw was a good simple working social media platform for selling direct to consumer by a decentralized platform.

The vision isn’t anything new and there is high competition in the space. The white paper doesn't include competitor analysis.
MVP leaves a lot to be desired, only screenshots.
Despite a decent team it lacks the depth of experience in the related field. I don’t gain any confidence the team / advisors are the ones to deliver the vision

Nice team with experience, CEO needs to update his profile for sure to gain more trust. Decent site with the information needed but needs working on. The project has potential and can give motive to future designers with the projects features. The MVP is available but needs to fixing of the errors and bugs. Overall, this project is one to look out for.

I just show eCommerce platforms in the WP. Ideally connecting eCommerce with social media is a beneficial activity.
Using blockchain for transaction is smart work, I am really impressed with the White Paper they have.
Team is missing technical faces. MVP, only screens?
FYI, Blue color is too dark on their website and WP.
Thanks for your review.
We do have a working MVP, but it’s not online yet. I’m happy to connect to present cosquare and give an MVP demonstration to you or anyone interested in the project.

Great use case for blockchain and cryptocurrency alike.
Team looks strong and have the relevant experience.
Vision combines ecommerce and social networking which is a double benefit to both user and vendor for marketing and brand awareness.
Really great idea.
My only concern is the platform using an erc20 token which has gas/gwei costs that can increase over $5 a transaction based on the network.
Therefor a low cost item could become double the cost due to the transaction cost. (Experienced this myself).
The token use as payment method is also a worry as people like variety.
Good luck team.

This ICO looks to be providing a useful solution in the e-commerce industry. This social marketplace has the potential to transform how a generation of social media users shops. I like that the CSQ Token will act as a medium of exchange for products sold on the cosquare social marketplace. The team has a good track record. and is very well qualified. The Medium blog is very engaging. The team is young yet extremely well qualified as is so often the case with Eastern Block tech companies. This ICO goal looks realistic.
