User culture in the online gaming industry is changing. Gambling sites are not providing the variety, social interactivity, or sense of community that players are seeking. Trend reports show that people are looking for new ways to engage in sporting events, including competing directly against friends, as well as the broader sporting community. Who Knows Wins (WKW) is a social platform which utilizes blockchain technology to bring friends, family, and even total strangers from all over the world together to compete in making selections on any sporting event. Our leagues consist of three fundamentals: entry stake, sporting fixtures, distribution of winnings.
Our vision is to revolutionize the gambling industry, making it more social, interactive, and truly responsible by introducing a new wave of player vs player competitions and creating a strong community. We do this using our own cryptocurrency, WIN tokens.
There is a huge global online gambling market, which is consistently growing. It is forecasted to eclipse £495 billion (2019). The UK market has grown from £1.3 billion (2010) to £4 billion (2015).
Based on the meteoric rise of social gaming sites such as Fan Duel and Draft Kings in the US, we feel there is an increasing demand for peer vs peer daily leagues.
There is currently no other platform which allows users to create their own leagues and compete against each other in predicting the outcome of actual sporting events.
We have a clear B2C platform model and we also are building B2B partnerships. Who Knows Wins takes a 1% commission from the overall pot of each league. Our players can only enter the leagues using cryptocurrency.
WKW is currently in the process of an ICO which will aim to raise $19m. The coins will be used for players to enter leagues within the platform. With the funds raised WKW will continue the development of outstanding, high-quality mobile apps (IOS & Android).
We are looking for $19mn seed investment in the form of an Initial Coin Offering.
Use of funds: marketing, reserves, build iOS / Android app
