Sessia - ICO Review

Sessia: Social Marketplace With Interesting Perks

Sessia in an international blockchain project that came into existence in 2016 in Moscow with the company of the same name being simultaneously launched in Hong Kong. Since that time, Sessia has broadened its global reach through opening a representative office in New York in 2018. The blockchain marketplace based on the interesting concept of receiving cashback and the so-called ‘kickbacks’ for social sharing in the Sessia’s native mobile application is the company’s staple digital product. 

As of now, Sessia holds the pre-sale of its token - KICKS, an intra-platform digital currency that serves as a mean for paying out cashback and other bonuses.

The concept of Sessia

Sessia is a mobile application developed on the basis of the Ethereum blockchain and adapted to Android and iOS. The app’s main differential peculiarity is that it comes as a synergistic combination of a peer-to-peer marketing platform, a marketplace absent of intermediaries, and a social network that allows users to share their experiences about shops, restaurants, food joints, and other retail stores.

Judging from the economic forecasts, which say that the global revenue from online retail will surpass the $4 billion mark by 2020, with the total number of Internet shoppers rising to 2 billion, it is safe to say that Sessia has the potential of becoming a notable player in that particular sector because it combines a fresh approach with the innovative technology and also provides vast benefits to both sellers and buyers. 

Advantages for buyers

Unlike similar platforms that offer buyers cashback only for purchasing commodities, Sessia also allows for receiving bonuses by the virtue of making recommendations, posting receipts, publishing reviews, and referring friends. Moreover, users are also entitled to receiving a special kind of bonuses called ‘kickbacks’ which are awarded by the seller if the user’s friend makes the same purchase at the same store. The app provides users with a list of affiliated stores that allocate kickbacks for making purchases and then scanning the QR code which automatically generates feedback in the Sessia newsfeed visible to all users. 

Advantages for retailers

In essence, the retailers will get a chance to join the progressive platform, create an online store or connect the brick-and-mortar shop to the Sessia network by becoming an affiliate. The platform features a free store builder which allows the offline store to takes their business online and establish a connection with a new pool of customers in a matter of minutes. Sessia doesn’t force businesses to use their intra-app payment system (SessiaPay) as the only possible gateway. Moreover, Sessia offers a tool for logistics management (SessiaLogistics) as well as the CRM software (SessiaCRM) to facilitate the sustainable development of affiliate stores.

The KICKS token and IEO details

The ERC-20 tokens - KICKS are used for making direct purchases via the Sessia app and awarding bonuses (cashback, kickback). In contrast to other cashback schemes, Sessia’s bonuses in KICKs are credited to user’s wallet almost instantly. The accumulated tokens can be easily exchanged to other cryptocurrencies or fiat money. 

As of now, Sessia is pre-selling the KICKS token through the special offer that will end on July 31. The official website also has it that Sessia will organize the IEO on two cryptocurrency exchanges: Coindeal and BitForex. The price of 1 KICKS is $1.5 with the minimum purchase - 100 KICKS. Citizens of the United States won’t be able to invest in this project due to the imposed restrictions.

As if there are not enough people on Instagram who flood the feed line with photos of food, clothing, and other such nonsense. I understand the inherent desire to boast about things you like, but now these people have come with a way to monetize it. Sessia may indeed help someone to make a better purchase or find out about some cool coffee joint or something, but to a larger extent, this app will turn into just another avalanche of useless information.

Social media influencers can really benefit from using Sessia because a lot of people are simply copy-cats. I mean that the followers of some well-known bloggers would be willing to go above and beyond to purchase or taste the same thing/dish their fondling had posted about. I can’t even begin to imagine how many KICKS the guys like Pewdiepie or Gary Vaynerchuk would have gotten in just one day! I am also a wannabe blogger and influencer, so I will definitely give Sessia a shot.

Sessia offers a great incentive to the consumers who like receiving cashback on their purchases. The Kickback scheme they come up with is also very interesting, a sort of word-to-mouth marketing based on a blockchain. Given that I have a lot of friends who like to go out for shopping and such, I think that I could make a decent amount of KICKS on a regular basis. The minimum purchase limit is not that high, so I think I’ll go for Sessia.
