Jelurida develops Nxt, a time-tested blockchain platform that was the first to fully adopt the proof-of-stake blockchain model in late 2013, as well as Ardor, a platform implementing a parent-child chain structure with an emphasis on scalability via full node pruning of child chain transactions. This architecture allows for multiple blockchains, known as child chains, to exist on a single platform, thus creating interoperability among them. Originally developed by a group of individual developers, together they formed Jelurida in 2016 and held a token sale in 2017 for Ignis, the first child chain of Ardor which is directly supported by Jelurida. SICOS advised Jelurida on strategic issues related to the IGNIS Token Sale and the development of the white paper. The Initial Token Sale commenced on the 5th of August, 2017 and raised over US $15M in their ICO.
ODEM allows students around the world to take ownership of their education. The ODEM platform has been made possible by the emergence of cutting-edge blockchain technology that allows qualified and trusted members of the education industry to create customized curriculum and experiences and offer them directly to the market. ODEM will facilitate live, in-classroom experiences, supported by online capabilities. ODEM is more than just an education marketplace. Through Ethereum-based smart contracts, agreements between students and professors will be attained with the least possible involvement of intermediaries. The platform’s exchangeable utility tokens will act as a common currency to smoothen cross-border payments and to incentivize professors to keep their courses up to date and relevant. SICOS advised Odem in conceiving the business plan, development of the white paper, token economics and various strategic decisions of the Token Sale. The project raised over 5.7 Million Euro.

ORS Group has successfully completed their Initial Token Sale. The project raised over $ 14 million.
VREO is developing B2B marketplace solutions for software developers and brands, which enables the placement of digital billboards (surfaces within software to show banners/posters/videos) within gaming software without interrupting user experience. VREO enables the placement of ads dynamically and natively embedded within gaming software, opening up completely new ways to monetize gaming platforms using the unused in-game space. VREO supplies the developers with plugins and algorithms which are tethered to various graphical engines with which the software is developed. These plugins and algorithms are used for streaming and exchanging the ads as well as evaluating the exact number of views and other user specific data. VREO intends to launch the Initial Token Sale in Q1 2018.
