StormX has finally launched its Storm Play iOS app. The company is celebrating this by giving users the opportunity to win up to $10,000 in BTC, STORM, BNB, or ETH via the company’s Twitter competition.
According to the company, the Storm Play platform is “revolutionizing the global economy by leveraging Blockchain to empower the global workforce.”
What The New StormX Play Platform Does
The app allows users to earn STORM tokens, Bitcoin, and Ether by performing microtasks via games, products or services. STORM is similar to Amazon’s crowdsourcing marketplace, Mechanical Turk, through which individuals and companies can outsource virtual tasks.
Within the platform, the sellers, advertisers, and companies who assign the microtasks are called Storm Makers. The consumers, viewers, and freelancers who complete these tasks are called Storm Players. The app brings these users together, thus creating value for the network.
The platform’s reward system is managed by an in-app ledger. When Storm Players complete tasks within the app, they are rewarded with Bolts, which can be redeemed for STORM Tokens or traded for other cryptocurrencies.
Prior to the recent launch of the iOS app, Storm Play had only been available on the Android operating system.
StormX CEO Simon Yu Speaks On Storm Play iOS App
Storm CEO, Simon Yu, comment on the fact that iOS users had been waiting nearly a year for the launch, saying:
“It took longer than we estimated but we’re excited to launch our iOS platform. We started back in 2014 and the environment was very similar. Right after Mt. Gox and Silk Road incidents people were afraid to buy Bitcoin but the technology was still really interesting. Our platform (Storm Play) allows people all over the world to be able to get their hands on cryptocurrency without having to risk their money. That includes the 1.7B people currently without a bank account and it’s exciting to have the ability to tap into a new group of people.”
Storm has announced a Twitter competition to encourage potential users to try Storm Play. The winner will receive $10,000 in BTC, STORM, or ETH.The company raised over $30 million in its December 2017 ICO and has since made significant progress by launching its app and expanding its user base. The app has been downloaded 2.4 million time and has 250,000 active users.
