FAQ

1. What is Columb token?

Columb token is built on the Ethereum blockchain and complies with the ERC20 standard. ERC20 is the de-facto standard for token issuance. It facilitates owning, spending, and delegating usage of tokens by their holders. Columb token is an utility token. It represents a key to give both (Travelers and SME in travel sector) exactly what they need: paid content and free traffic for business.

As an owner of a Columb token you get:
A tool for payment on the platform
A key to various unique discounts and crypto cashback
A way to have a sole loyalty program for all leisure globally. Even in emerging markets.

2. How is Columbery different from any other travel leisure platforms?

Our product solves crucial problems of such giant services as Foursquare & Swarm, Groupon, and Tripadvisor. Millenial travelers don’t possess any more countless hours for preparing the trip itinerary (reading Tripadvisor). Business travelers, in particular, complain they are having maximum 2 to 5 free hours during their work trips, which they don’t want to spend on researching what is worth doing around. This results in choosing a poor experience followed by a negative impression about visited location.

For many years, Foursquare promoted discovery gamification but was unable to grant travelers with a real payments/rewards. With a time, user simply loses interest in the game without any applicable reward and abandon the service.

Groupon is an extremely powerful and still growing service. Many SME complains about the inefficiency of their promotions. Coupon service proved to be too broad and lacks visibility among personalized, targeted audience.

The benefits of using Columbery are:

  1. The solution that allows getting paid for a travel content contribution in real spendable cryptocurrency.
  2. Columbery is focused on solving immediate travelers’ needs: find things-to-do nearby at this exact moment without wasting time on search and asking questions.
  3. Free traffic for SME by showing coupons through the game to the targeted user nearby.
  4. Columbery is a first travel activities service with its cryptocurrency. It is something many existing marketplaces are not able to introduce.
  5. Columbery strategy includes an ambition to reach at least 50% bigger market offering. Blockchain allows building trust between SME and travelers in the regional and emerging markets.
3. Why blockchain?

Issuing Columb token we enable:

  1. Opportunity to monetize content contribution for a traveler.
  2. Get free targeted traffic for SME.
  3. Develop a coalition loyalty program for a 3M SME and solve market fragmentation issue.

Crypto token gives us unique opportunity to grow platform with lightning speed (creating marketing Hype around paid content) and onboard 3M SME in a matter of a year.

Other great benefits of the solution are:

  • Scaling without compromising the quality of the content and services.
  • Cutting extra costs and keep prices affordable.
  • Securing the transaction between enterprises and travelers.
  • Promote cryptocurrency usage habits among travel community.

By gradually integrating blockchain payment solutions, the company will reduce extra costs, ensure users have access to trustworthy information and affordable services of great quality.

4. Can US / Chinese / Israeli citizens participate in the ICO?

You don’t have the right and shouldn’t buy CLMB tokens if you are a citizen or resident (tax or otherwise) of any country or territory where transactions with digital tokens and/or digital currencies are prohibited or in any other manner restricted by applicable laws. As of now, it looks like participants from USA, China and South Korea will not be able to take part in the public ICO itself. Please find a list of all countries and their regulations here https://www.bitcoinmarketjournal.com/ico-regulations/

5. When is the Columb token going to be transferable?

Tokens will be issued and available to transfer in a few weeks after the planned end of token sale on October 30. Please note, that every investor needs to undergo KYC procedure before tokens withdrawal.
