Gooruf.com is a vertical social network for finance (online since 2017) aiming to revolutionize the way we choose financial investments and products.
By leveraging the power of blockchain technology, GoorufCoin is the utility token that will enable this revolution.
Gooruf.com is a vertical social network for finance (online since 2017) that brings together all the players of the industry in an unprecedented way, connecting users and financial providers (such as publishers, trainers, experts, banks, insurers, and brokers). The platform aggregates news, product sheets, reviews, opinions, advice and educational materials to help people navigate the world of finance, and choose investments and products in a savvy and informed manner. Just as TripAdvisor changed the way people make choices for their travels, Gooruf.com promotes crowd wisdom and quality content to improve personal finance management. The platform will also enable profiled, targeted advertising for financial firms. At the present, the Italian version of the website is the most developed; our UK and Asia editions are growing every day. Technical improvement based on blockchain is fast transforming Gooruf.com into a decentralized ecosystem.
What is GoorufCoin?
To further our mission of building a financial ecosystem, Gooruf.com is launching GoorufCoin with an ICO in Hong Kong. GUR is a utility token and the foundation of the digital economy within Gooruf.com, used to reward users and financial content providers for participating and contributing to the life of the platform and to allow financial firms to promote their products in the marketplace. Users will be able to redeem their tokens to access premium educational materials and special offers or discounts. Users will also have the chance to purchase and exchange GoorufCoins for fiat or crypto currencies through internal and external exchanges.
When Gooruf.com users and financial content providers contribute valuable content to the platform — an in-depth response to another user’s questions, a helpful review of a retail financial product, an insightful article — they will be rewarded in GoorufCoin.
Utilization by Users
Users can use GoorufCoin — either earned or bought — to access or buy educational content (e-books, training programs, online courses) and to unlock special offers and discounts from financial firms co-operating with the project, both inside and outside Gooruf.com proper.
Utilization by Firms
Financial firms can use GoorufCoin —converted from an initial fiat deposit via an automatic exchange — to buy visibility inside Gooruf.com and to better promote their content, offers or events; or to buy targeted leads of profiled users for direct engagement, improving conversion rates.
GoorufCoin Initial Coin Offering (ICO)
An ICO is the launch of a new crypto asset related to a specific project. In the past, many ICOs were launched by early stage projects — with the vast majority being in the idea phase — and the tokens were sold all at once to raise ambitious amounts of capital, maximizing their one-time fundraising. Shortly after their ICOs were completed, many tokens fell sharply in value, and some project owners even ran away with the money. Because of this, ICOs have garnered a bad reputation.
The GoorufCoin ICO is different:
- The project has been live for almost two years (since 2017) and has running operations in Italy, the UK, and Asia (Hong Kong).
- The owners, team and investors are well-known professionals who have been fully disclosed — showcasing commitment to the development of the project and sustained token adoption.
- The tokens will be sold in batches, over time, in order to cover operational and development costs — not asking for an exorbitant sum all at once.
Private Token Sales are scheduled to open on this website late 2018 (exact dates TBA) and GoorufCoin will soon be listed on an international exchange.
Gooruf.com is global project with offices and teams in Hong Kong, London, Milan and New York
