Disclaimer:
The purchasing rate of TYPE Tokens is reflective of the market price of ETH/USD, therefore the prices listed in ETH (Ethereum) are subject to change.

Post Token Sale Update:
Thank you to everyone who participates in the Typerium token sale. Since the token sale ended we have been evaluating options in terms of how to build the content-creation platform. As we mentioned in our whitepaper, things may not always go to plan, but we remain fully behind the project and are committed to the ethos of Typerium. Therefore on the basis of not having reached our soft-cap, and in order to make sure we have the resources available to realise the project, we will be planning to sell some of the tokens allocated to Typerium to inject resources into the project development. This will allow us to continue to build the platform and ultimately realise the vision outlined in the whitepaper of a world where content creators can protect and monetise their creations in a cost effective and fair way. We are currently liaising with exchanges, and as a team we are excited to start building our vision. Thank you all for the continued support, and please join our community on Telegram.

Token Allocation

Here’s a breakdown of how the funds will be allocated across the business...

Why is Typerium needed?

Typerium is needed to protect the intellectual property of content creators, to facilitate a cost-effective and global creative currency, and to create a thriving decentralised marketplace for buying and selling digital content.

Trust and Transparency

Building trust in online commerce is hard. Creative content makers cannot reach their audiences easily and the big marketplaces don’t make information available to makers and buyers. Typerium brings them transparency and makes it more efficient and rewarding for makers and buyers to connect.

The creative content application
market is underdeveloped

Apps that connect creative content and users are one of the fastest-growing markets. Yet, no easy way exists to link creators with users. Type Protocol is the app that finally brings them together. With the app, creators can make high-end content that can be used on any platform, linking makers to users and everyone to rewards.

Traditional contracts and licensing
are slow and expensive

Typerium embraces Ethereum’s smart contract technology to automate all of the complex processes that normally take lawyers, high fees and large amounts of time to get done. Licensing and usage rights are built into Typerium’s process. The app also makes it easier to track intellectual property and piracy.

Normal payment processing is complex,
expensive and slow

Typerium leverages blockchain technology, which can make payment times much faster than traditional services like PayPal and credit cards. Big marketplaces create additional costs, but the Typerium environment removes big-marketplace overheads from transactions.

Inability to capitalise on the
growing blockchain economy

Typerium provides a pathway for creative content makers and users of creative content to capitalise on the blockchain economy. It is a marriage of creativity and commerce that rewards makers, users and all participants in the Typerium environment.

The 4 main areas that our platform covers

Each with its own unique offering...

Creative Software

Decentralised Platform for Content Creators

Our integrated and intuitive design software allows creators to produce high-quality visual content for any platform without needing any previous design experience.

Marketplace

Faster payouts, higher commission, more transparency.

We’re developing a decentralised marketplace that not only protects the intellectual property rights of content creators, but provides them with an 85% commission on all sales.

Social Media Network

Connecting with each other in a way that is universal

We’re creating a community-driven social network that rewards users, so you don’t have to rely on just your sales. You’ll also be rewarded for your contributions.

Integrated Ecosystem

Blockchain technology and smart contracts facilitate transactions

We’re creating a global network of creators using a single currency, TYPE Tokens. All content within the Typerium eco-system is bought and sold with TYPE Tokens. These tokens can be exchanged for fiat currency through exchanges at any time.
