Ratings Fanfare

Social Commerce Community

A community-based two-sided platform for creating, curating and converting consumer-generated videos into instant Shoppable Videos for brands, Fanfare is purpose-built from ground up to enable Social Commerce. Its building blocks are conceived and created specifically with Social Commerce and Shoppable Videos in mind from the start. The features and functionalities have been well-thought out and designed precisely to help brands and consumers connect more intimately, by facilitating an integrated two-way Brand-Consumer engagement, so that brands can expand their relationships with their consumers to maintain trust, familiarity, and positivity. Fanfare’s unique feature is enabling a brand to convert any Consumer-Generated Video into a Shoppable Video with ease. Users can also easily post and share videos on Fanfare like on any social media platform. The added incentive is that brands can now accurately and cost-effectively add a BUY Button to any of these consumer-generated videos on Fanfare, converting them into instant Shoppable Videos. The advantages are that the content creator will get rewarded and the brands can harness the power of Consumer-Generated Videos to build their image, promote their products and drive immediate sales, or for lead generation, while at the same time, creating their own library of viral consumer-generated videos aggregated within their own channel.

The reward system will only work if the users are incentivized by a token that actually has value. In the "uses of tokens" section of the whitepaper it does not appear that there will be any "real" value to the tokens in both the short and long term due to the fact that they are intended to be used solely within the ecosystem. no mention of exchanges.
the milestones indicate that the wallet will not be ready until Q1 2019 and the estore Q3 2020.

I do not see any value or ROI to an investor.
I do not believe this to be a good investment.

Thanks for your comment. It was an oversight on our part to assume that most discerning investors like yourself will know that a project like this will definitely hit the exchange. We have updated our WP to include that info. Thanks again for pointing that out to us and we hope you will reconsider your rating based on this information. It will help us in our efforts to make this a responsible and outstanding project! All the best!

The concept and vision is unique and interesting to me. Developing videos for a purpose is a great way to both enjoy people’s habits and monetize it.

Team is a bit thin as it is required a lot of PR and marketing efforts in order to change behaviors of youtubers who can still monetize their videos to use your platform.

A project that gained the demand of the market.
"The minimum campaign budget is 2,000 FAN."
Is this a fixed price regardless of the market price of the token?
Also, how do you avoid the risk of user leakage when similar services emerge?
Is there an advantage, for example, when a service that distributes points that can be used for Fiat or purchase appears instead of a token?
I hope this will be clarified.

Thanks for comments.

1. For campaigns, it is possible that we will decide on an Algo that could make real-time adjustments to the campaign fee based on the market value of the FAN Token. It is also possible that we will let the market forces decide on how much is a campaign worth. We can also fix it with a more stable currency like USD, and let the FAN fluctuate accordingly.

2. I think many Apps would love to know the answer to this question. It’s always about being faster and more nimble. Creating loyalty among users is not difficult if you constantly listen to what they want.

3.If you are asking why do we tokenise our Social Commerce platform, we believe that it is important to have a decentralised ecosystem as what blockchain will provide. It’s also a way for us to help brands get into cryptocurrency and to try to popularise the concept of accepting crypto as a way of payment or for transactions.

There were many projects in the venture capital industry that tried to link youtube and retail. But most likely, this problem cannot be solved without blockchain.
It is interesting to see how the project will be develop. The project has an MVP already and has a pretty strong team.

hi Mohit... thanks for your comments and rating. The Fanfare app is live with more than 150,000 downloads. Even with the current IN-APP currency, users are already using it to exchange for real world products on the APP. With blockchain and crptocurrency, the usage and the value of $FAN will be even greater. Cheers.

This is a good project and the team looks capable. The issue is that I believe they are early to the market. It will be hard for projects like this to flourish until the infrastructure is fully built .

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.

A strong team. The fact that they already have a lot of brands on board boosts confidence in the platform. KYC is complete. Another plus is that they already have an app on the app store and play store.

However, token reward system does not provide a value proposition.

I appreciate they have a working product, as nowadays having at least an MVP is a must. The system works and is verified, so kudos for that.
I rated the Product with 4 as I see some things that have to be polished, but this is a process that takes time.

First things first. I saw that many experts consider the team experienced. I don’t agree with that. Other said that the token will be priceless. If the project will be successful the token will have some value. But no one mentioned the fact that there is no need for implementation of blockchain in this project. In fact my opinion is that blockchain is putting some constraints to this project because it makes the FIAT currency transactions inconvenient. The team actually tries to raise money by exploiting the blockchain hype.

What concerns me the most though is that the engagement with both influencers and brands will be limited to say the least. Even if 40% will be distributed for marketing purposes, it is still not enough to engage the desired amount of visitors to the platform.

Simplified....... Ask yourselves. How many people you think they will visit the platform?

Blockchain in a Social Commerce ecosystem allows for a decentralised platform with transactions between Brands and Users. It makes the system efficient.

Not everybody has access to FIAT currency, or a bank account, or a credit card and Fanfare reaches out also to the 1.5billion people that are considered unbanked.

If you read our whitepaper, we are not an influencers platform, we are creating s Social Commerce platform where Consumers can interact directly with the Brands and Brands can reward their fans.

Within a year of the APP launch, we have over 150,000 downloads that we use as our beta testers to test each integral part of the ecosystem - Video Campaigns, Reward System, and Redemption Store.

Hope you can try out the Fanfare App!

A really strong team complimented by a decent advisory board is always a good starting place for a project, and there is little to fault this area of the project.

The vision is quite generic, and dare I say it, stale, in that while the project will fulfil an interesting niche in the market (social network disruption), the rewards, incentives and use-case are relatively standard in their concept and apparent execution. It would have been great to see some real innovation come through that other projects in this space are exploring.

The product is sound, and exists in the app world, again its not something that really excites. I wonder if there is really a solid blockchain use-case here, and if the same could not be achieved in a non-blockchain environment with the right transaction and payment partners to create a successful company? Time will tell I guess.

Thanks for your comments. Fanfare has a unique and innovative feature that allows Brands to add a "BUY" button on Consumer-generated Content, converting it into a shoppable video, closing the user purchase journey.

And since you are familair with Decentralisation, we do not need to elaborate on the block-chain use-case.

Even if most projects/platforms can be executed without blockchain, it does not mean that they should not integrate blockchain if it makes the system more efficient and trustworthy.

I like the fact that this has been obviously well thought out and planned, it displays dedication and a strong drive from the team. That said, however, I don't see how this is in any way unique, why it would even require its own ICO, or why the hard cap would need to be that high for a rewards platform. There are already a plethora of apps that allow brands to come on board to request a certain amount/format/kind of user-generated content for their campaigns. I do understand the excitement-factor in being able to go the other way around. It's definitely something I'd want to get on to and play around with, and possibly use, but I just don't see the differentiators as clearly. In addition, 40% of funds allocated towards marketing a user-generated/branded rewards platform? Seems a little high. Attracting your target audience and getting adoption at some level seems far easier than that I feel.

Still, I do want to see how this can play out. Good luck, all!

[Michael] Thanks for the comments. With the global Social Commerce market reaching $165billion in 2021, we think it deserves more than a few ICOs, platforms, or even protocols. Imagine Youtube meets Amazon on blockchain, and the resources we will need to build this ecosystem. You are certainly right that our user acquisition cost is very much lower than many other apps due to the Rewards nature and Social Recognition mechanism but marketing a platform to users and brands globally will require significant amount of budget.

Team seems like a winning combination of professionals. Strong advisors and partners.

The idea behind the concept is solid and the social commerce market is huge. So no complaints there! This is a market ripe for disruption.

The only issue I see is the token. There is no inherent value in it. The only reason it would be worth something is through speculation. And then we get into the common crypto problem that when your token becomes worthless, people leave your platform in droves. This is a huge issue that needs to be addressed!

I wonder if this might be a better project without tokenization. Decentralization is not really so vital here, plus the token could easily be replaced with fiat money.

Team has done ICObench KYC,consisting of a big amount of advisors. Fanfare is already available on iOS and Android so that's a + for product. 20% for team and advisors is a bit high in my opinion but will be locked for 2 years with vesting period.Unsold tokens will be burned.

Team: Team looks quite strong, especially if talking about advisory board where are well-known and high-reputation people. I give 4 at the moment, as the verification is not passed yet.

Vision: Vision looks really nice and there is definitely good potential if the market will accept Fanfare, as UGC (User Generated Content) is one if the major marketing direction for upcoming years.

Product: The product logic seems to be very easy for both - users and brand owners; however, the question is if it really solves the problem in the market. I am going to meet Founders of this project in Singapore and will talk deeper about this. After the meeting the comment and potentially the rank will be changed.

This project has some great people on their advisory boar and a few good team members with successful experience. I believe that the people is the main force for a successful delivery of the product. It's also great to see so many social media followers. However, I don't see a massive user traction and especially retention without the good incentive models. The gap between Asia and the rest of the world might be an issue for scaling as well.

I love this idea. Social commerce and affiliate marketing on a macro level is the future of digital marketing, and this gives an awesome platform with transparency for both sides to be a part of that.

A couple of possible flags though:
- The tokenomics need some work. At the moment there's not much going on there outside of people being paid with it, and yes, it'll be listed on an exchange, but just because it's listed doesn't mean it automatically has some long term value. This needs work, and a reason to have actual value as a reward currency. The whitepaper just has a very vague "oh more money will come in and increase value". How? Quite a bit of work needed here.

- Some doubts on the team as well. They've got some decent experience in other fields, but none really in social and affiliate marketing which is the core product. You don't need heaps of blockchain advisors or people, your core product is the social commerce which there's not enough experience with.

Also the hard cap is pretty darn high. No idea why it needs to be that much. That's like Series B funding in the VC world for what should be Seed-Series A funding max.

Social Commerce is already an integral part of the online economy. We have already tested out a Redemption system within the APP currently and it’s very popular with users. Using tokens to exchange for real world products. This will be translated to a full-fledged ecommerce site where Users can use the FAN Tokens to purchase Products at a great discount, thus increasing the demand of the FAN Tokens. Fanfare closes the loop on the purchase journey.

Our core product is a Social Commerce platform and not social and affiliate marketing. We solved a very important problem in the Ecommerce Space where Brands are able to convert a User-generated content into shoppable videos. Fanfare is a 2-sided app where Brands can directly connect to their fans and their video content.

Do download the Fanfare app to get a better picture of what we are doing. You will like it...
You are perfectly right that Fanfare is in Series B in regards to Token Financing.

The social e-commerce community is one that is rowing everyday. Videos can have a greater affect on grasping consumer attention. The key here for Fanfare will be, will the additional attention help with sales?
I'm assuming the quality of the videos will play a role in getting attention for the product.

The team and advisors look experienced in the arena of marketing and media so this is a definite bonus for the project.

How quickly it is adaptable by the masses will determine success for Fanfare. In today's technological world, anything can almost go viral at anytime. Best of luck to the Team!
