Customer satisfaction is one of the key metrics for any business strategy. Butright now, the whole relationship between businesses and customers is unbalanced, and it harms both sides. Businesses which provide quality products or services often fail to expand theirreach, orto properly engage with their clients through loyalty programs. Sandblock’s goal is to balance and redefine the relationship between businesses and their customers by building a decentralized protocol to define, measure and improve customer satisfaction in orderto benefit both sides.
Sandblock’s Protocol aims at fostering crypto payments by building a reliable
decentralized ecosystem thatrewards customers fortheir engagement and loyalty.
The core protocol behind Sandblock is built on top of the Ethereum blockchain. It uses the most advanced blockchain technologies to prevent fraud, malicious actions, and verify transactions to ensure that each actorin the ecosystem gets rewarded as intended.
How it works
Sandblock allows companies to change loyalty points, coupons and coupons into crypto assets, become tradable and have real market value!
Built on the Ethereal blockade, it created an autonomous consortium that connects businesses and customers together by harnessing the power of blockchain and Smart Contracts.
Blockchain & Smart Contract
Unsafe protocols are accessible to everyone. Allowing businesses to communicate seamlessly, joining consortiums that have smart contracts without negotiation and increasing customer trust through transparency and privacy.
Data & privacy analysis
Anonymous customer data is available for participating businesses. Data is encrypted and only analytical data is retrieved without disclosing personal information. Simply put, we provide data for business and privacy for customers!
Gifts · Surveys · Games
Businesses can be more involved with customers through loyalty programs, through surveys, contests, games and more apps using the Sandblock mobile app. Customers are authenticated and autonomously awarded by the protocol.
Token allocation & funds usage
Satisfaction Tokens (SATs) will be created during the crowdsale at a specific rate. There is a total of 55 000 000 Satisfactions Tokens with 50% of them (27 500 000) for sale during the Token Generation Event. During each phase of the Token Generation Event, all unsold tokens will be burnt after the event ends. Once the crowdsale finishes, the maximum supply of Satisfaction Tokens will be fixed and immutable.
30% of the tokens will be dedicated to early business adoption as an incentive to join the network. It will be gradually distributed to businesses to foster the growth of the network.
All the funds raised through the crowdsale process will be dedicated to the development of the Sandblock ecosystem. The different budget allocations will slightly vary depending on the final amount raised and we will adjust our business plans at the end of the crowdsale.
