PLAZA: The Intersection of Lifestyle & Technology
Plaza brings emerging technologies to life by focusing on everyday utility, convenience, efficiency, and security
CEO / Chief Architect
A serial entrepreneur for over 25 years, Kevin is an autodidact computer whiz kid, who has lived at the vanguard of various technology growth revolutions: early on embracing the DotCom boom, the e-commerce wave and more recently blockchain as a disruptive innovator. He relishes the challenges of leading companies through the startup phases of development.
Growing up a Silicon Valley nerd and tech insider, he was considered a prototypical “tech geek” who received grants from HP and designed his high school’s very first IT admin system. During the DotCom revolution, in 1997 (coinciding with Amazon.com going public and when 14% of the worldwide Internet users were located in California), Kevin founded his own successful California-wide ISP (Internet Service Provider).

Summary rate the project
Rate the project by other users3
Distributed technologies allow you to reduce multiple stores payment or other services into one application. This idea is core for the project team. Undoubtedly, such services are necessary, since the number of sites providing a variety of goods and services is huge and in order to choose the best options we’d like to make this process more automated.
Risks and disadvantages
There are no solutions for exchanging the project token for fiat currencies such as dollar or euro. We don’t know how long will this procedure take, which fees will need to be paid and which exchanges will make such operation. The project token has some sense and value, only if it would be in the list of large stock exchanges, otherwise the whole idea is meaningless.
The idea is not absolutely new. But automating the search for the desired product and performing all payments using project tokens from anywhere in the world will get great demand. But as I’ve already told, without a real evaluation of the project's token on crypto-exchange exchanges, the idea can not be realized.
Risks and disadvantages
The project focuses on everyday utility, convenience, efficiency, and security which are key amenities for many people. The project has relatively high crowd sales which increases on the community users and improves on the token value. It also accepts a number of cryptocurrencies which will attract a number of potential investors. The project has a dynamic and reliable team which will see it to its success. It also employees a manageable team of employees which is good for a start up. It has an AI-assisted meta search engine that looks for the best choice of goods and services. The project has enticing incentives for those publicizing the project get 50 PLAZA as a reward.
Risks and disadvantages
The project has a extremely low traffic from the statistics which will hinder the potential growth.
The project has unique features that aren't found in ICO projects with similar projects this should be used a competitive advantage against the competitors in the market so as to secure a big number of potential investors. The project has a number of incentives to entice many investors.
Did I make the list in time?
When will I know I am eligible for the “PLAZA Freedom 50” Airdrop? Right now. If you are on the official list AND you have fulfilled all the other requirements, such as sharing a positive Plaza message to your favourite social media channel, then you are in.
What is the bonus for the “PLAZA Republic” Presale?
If you have reserved PLAZA for the presale and then complete your purchase during the presale period you will have secured the best possible PLAZA bonus of 50%. This is better than the best available bonus during the ICO.
How long will you hold them?
Your reserved tokens will be held for you only during the presale period of fourteen (14) days, after which they will be made available to general ICO purchasers.
You will be notified by email at the start of the presale period to give you plenty of time to finalise your purchase. During the presale you will be required to undergo a simple KYC procedure.
What do I get for “FREE”?
How about a Special Edition PlazaCard and maybe even a free PlazaConcierge? All who reserve PLAZA and go on to purchase them during presale will be prequalified for a Special Edition PlazaCard™ Sapphire or better after the ICO.
In addition, those who buy more than 2,000 PLAZA during presale will receive the free gift of a PlazaConcierge™, which is a high-tech low-powered smart speaker, MerchantChain miner, and hardware wallet. This will be shipped when it is fully developed.
