How We Begin

Every city is different in a million different ways. We listen to you then we start to find ways
to support what you have started, and to add new elements to strengthen them.

Introductory Conversation

Let's jump on a call together. We'll start by listening to you and then tell you about some of the ways that we can be of assistance, support or full-scale collaboration. It's best if you start by sending an email to info@qoin.org

Collaboration Plan

Together we develop a collaboration plan and start to expand on the elements of the plan. We develop an idea of the scope and timeline of the projet overall, and the individual piees and put these into a formal proposal for your approval.

Tokenization Workshop

We often find it helps to get everyone on the same page by holding a Tokenization Workshop in your community. Depending on various factors, this could be anywhere from 3-7 days, where we take you through Qoin's rigorous Token Design Methodology.

Project Implementation

Once we are all on the same page about what needs to be done, we then start to implement the project as structured and agreed, along with some flexibility in case new elements come into play. Our Token Design Methodology has grown to handle nearly every kind of possibility.

Recent & Current Projects

Our Team of consultants is based in Asia, North America and Europe, and we reach
Africa and Central & South America as well.
