Birdchain is a blockchain-based (r)evolution of services we currently provide. It tackles two problems
at the same time:
Firstly, despite the fact that almost all mobile phone owners have unlimited SMS plans or get
large amounts of free SMSs every month, almost nobody uses SMS messages. Today, people
communicate via instant messaging apps, which means that every month billions of free SMS
messages are wasted simply because they are not used
Secondly, businesses pay up to 8 euro cents per single SMS to send promotional or transactional
messages to their clients. Although the price of the service is indecently high and corporate
middlemen keep rising it every year, the quality of service is declining (lower delivery speed,
messages are delivered too late, and only a part of all the possible recipients get the messages).
For people Birdchain will be an instant messaging app which will automatically sell unused SMSs to
businesses. All they will have to do is download the Birdchain app and set the maximum number of
messages to send. Almost instantly the app will start sending transactional or promotional SMSs
automatically in the background of the app. Birdchain will never send messages to Birdchain app user
Birdchain will only facilitate the A2P SMS distribution service, NOT the app user contacts, therefore,
before using Birdchain service, client businesses need to build and have their own contact database.
The Birdchain service will be purchased in Birdchain cryptocurrency (tokens) and users will get paid in
Birdchain cryptocurrency (tokens). Real-life Birdchain token (BIRD) application will ensure an additional
adaptation boost. We believe it to be the best way to develop a stable and secure cryptocurrency. As it can be noticed in the current market, real-life adaptation and price stability are the key attributes most
current cryptocurrencies lack.
Low service prices for businesses and monetary motivation for Birdchain app users will help Birdchain
to enter the A2P SMS market smoothly. In 2017 the value of global A2P market hit $63 billion in revenue
and is expected to reach $84 billion by 2024.
The team behind Birdchain has been successfully operating the A2P SMS aggregation business
VertexSMS for almost 10 years. During that period we have gathered in-depth expertise and knowledge
of A2P SMS market. Moreover, we have more than 10 years of experience in software development
(especially in social networking apps) and remarkable proficiency in both blockchain and cryptography.
It gives us the confidence in creating a more transparent, more secure and fairer solution for the public,
businesses, and the market itself.
