An AI Project Plans to Offer Solutions to Upgrade the Online Shopping

Days before the crowdsale starts, startup presented the development process of their AI-driven platform

Eligma, a Slovene project that proposes an easier way of the search process for things we want to buy online, concluded its public presale and reached the project’s soft cap a week before the start of their token sale. After having presented the solution and the plan to enable cryptocurrency transactions for everyday shopping with their system Elipay, the Eligma team presented the alpha version of their AI-driven category predictor – a module that presents the basis for their innovative discovery feature. They also made the code available on their GitHub. In order to be able to further its development, Eligma is currently holding a presale of its tokens, with the public crowdsale to follow on 17 April.

Its discovery concept will rely on an algorithm that first recognizes the product’s category and then uses an AI agent that is specifically trained with all the characteristics of the products in that category. In that way, it can offer precisely what the user needs. Later on, this function will also be connected with a chatbot, asking the user smart questions to give the optimum item discovery results. The option to use the AI-driven feature to find the best deal amongst all online stores is the first of the three major functionalities that will enable Eligma to act as a comprehensive online store aggregator.

Alongside the presentation of the developed first stage of the Eligma’s discovery feature, CEO Dejan Roljic stated: “Our revolutionary technology will enable us to introduce a new market solution reflecting the needs of the contemporary buyer and making the online shopping concept a lot simpler. It is our ambition to make our solution global and set a new benchmark for all existing online sellers.” The other two functionalities to be developed are an automatic inventory of one’s property that suggests the best time to resell one’s unwanted possessions, and a loyalty system rewarding Eligma users with ELI crypto tokens. The last feature is also well underway, with the tests starting mid-April.

A Blockchain-based all-around product

Eligma’s three pillars — AI-driven discovery, blockchain-based inventory, and the ELI token-powered loyalty — will allow quick discovery of best offers, safer inventory keeping and a unified loyalty program for all users and retailers on the platform. This architecture represents the best of two worlds: we can harness the transparency and safety of both our sidechain and the Ethereum blockchain and, at the same time, avoid the transaction fees of the latter by only storing hash values there.

While the data fueling the inventory of each user could be kept in the form of a regular database, Eligma uses Blockchain to make it safer and transparent. Inventory pillar is based on a sidechain solution (a side chain is a blockchain ledger that runs in parallel to the primary blockchain). Inventory will encapsulate DIPs (digital item profiles) with different records regarding products. This will include products that users purchased and were added to the inventory automatically, and products that users added manually. Also, their ELI crypto token is an ERC-20 compliant token that enables them to use the Ethereum blockchain-based smart contracts for decentralized C2C and B2C sales on the blockchain. They will allow payments in cryptocurrencies between sellers and buyers who previously agreed to terms through the Eligma platform or other means of communications. Both buyers and sellers are therefore motivated to successfully fulfill the smart contract terms in order to receive their payment and/or deposit in ELI tokens. Eligma is a great case where smart contracts act as trustless agents, assuring that the terms are met and thereby eliminating the need for other parties to act as trusted agents.

Advisors that bring experience to the development and business building process

The advisors intrigued by Eligma’s business plan come from all relevant industries with experiences earned from working with renowned companies such as Google, Apple, Intel, EDG, eBay, CryptoIQ and more. That is a sign that time is right for Eligma to utilize the accumulated advisors’ knowledge and presents to the world how it envisions the future of commerce.

Crypto Price Watch: Litecoin (LTC), Revain (R) and Factom (FCT) Surge in the Top-50 as Other Altcoins Continue to Struggle

Over the course of the past 6 hours, Litecoin has gained considerable financial traction, with the price of a single LTC token currently hovering around the $27 mark. As can be seen from the chart below, Litecoin has been in a tear of sorts for the past 48 hours, with the currency rising from a respectable $23.82 to where it stands now (all within a span of less than two days). It is also worth mentioning that since December 16, the overall market capitalization of Litecoin has grown from $1.4 Billion to $1.635 Billion. What’s Causing Litecoin to Soar? Upon closer inspection, it seems as though the positive upward trend being displayed by Litecoin is due to Coingate recently announcing support for the currency. For those not aware, Coingate is a crypto payment service that previously only allowed its customers to use Bitcoin and Ethereum for facilitating global monetary transfers. @litecoin community, we bear some exciting news! Our #Litecoin #LightningNetwork is ready to be deployed and will soon be live on CoinGate! Keep up with the news as we’re getting closer! Here’s a little sneak peek @LTCFoundation @SatoshiLite @starkness! pic.twitter.com/QahcnFlYc5 — CoinGate (@CoinGatecom) December 13, 2018 In relation to the matter, a spokesperson for Coingate noted that the firm was all set to deploy the Litecoin Lightning Network on their servers as a result of which, it now appears as though more than 1000 merchants will have the ability to send/receive near instant LN payments. Revain and Factom See Biggest Gains Over 48-Hr Span Two of the biggest alt-coin gainers from the past few days have been Revain and Factom, with the two currencies rising by a staggering 44% and 15% in value (respectively). Factom’s rise can be traced back to the start of the month when the asset was trading for $7.82. However, since then, the currency has surged quite substantially, with the top-50 token now hovering just below the $10 mark. Similarly, in the case of Revain, the currency started its ascent just a few days back when a single token was being traded at $0.01. However, at press time, the currency is now closing in on the $0.175 mark. Final Take As most of our readers already know, the crypto market is currently in the grips of a cold, cold winter that promises to usher in even more misery in the coming few days. To put things into perspective, since mid-November, the digital currency sector as a whole has seen its total market cap drop from a sizeable $211 Billion to a meager $104.7 Billion (at press time).
