To get started, customers and community members can use the Find a Team option to connect with professionals with the skills, resources, and knowledge necessary to help them develop their ideas. Customers and community members can create job posts or go through the list of available freelancers to hire. The users can also use various filters, including category, skills, and salary to find providers.

To make a post, the user will need to enter the details for the job position, overview of the roles and responsibilities, required experience/skills/certification, and the proposed salary.

The Ideaology marketplace supports developers and artists from around the world, by letting them upload and sell their digital products, which can range from Dapps, WordPress Themes, Tutorials, Plug-ins, Designs, and other digital assets necessary for any startup project to get to the next level. To become a seller, the provider will need to register to the platform and provide the following information

  • Specialty
  • Skills
  • Copyright file

Once the information has been submitted, our team will evaluate the information provided before approval. After the approval, the marketplace seller will receive the option to post and track sales through their profile.

The main page of the marketplace will display all the offerings posted by sellers. The buyer can scroll through the offerings and buy the most appropriate product.

And then, there’s the Funding part of the Platform. Now that you’ve created your team, found all the needed assets and advisors, as well as partners, etc… you will need additional funding at some point in the business development.

🔎 Crowdfunding

Entrepreneurs can apply for crowdfunding for their projects on the platform. However, to do so, our team will first need to review and vet their project. The entrepreneur will need to submit a business plan/pitch deck with the details about their projects in the following interface:

After the project has been uploaded, will be evaluated by the Ideaology legal department, as well as experts in the field to verify that the project has a legitimate purpose and is not a scam. After it passes this evaluation, it proceeds to the voting stage. Community members and token holders can vote on each project after reviewing their details. The top voted projects will be displayed on the main page. If the project idea passes the voting stage, the idea will be approved for crowdfunding; however, if the idea fails to pass the voting stage, it will be transferred to the upcoming projects section.

In the upcoming project section, the idea developer will be given the feedback to improve their project, including the specific set of tasks required to overcome the shortcomings. The user will need to submit a new application after the improvement requirements have been met.

🔎 IDEA TOKEN

The IDEA token will be the core of all their interactions. Transactions through IDEA tokens will allow for a fluid ecosystem and a vibrant community. It will also be used to hold value, and its use will grant the users significant benefits. The Ideaology platform will be open for all kinds of monetary transactions, however, using the IDEA token will be the most efficient and profitable.

Our ICO has started on October 1st with a private-sale stage, which will be followed by two more stages, described HERE and HERE.
