Say No More To Injustice Towards Photographer
The world of photography is often neglected and abandoned from the spot of the media. Many assume that the photography is just about the passion and hobby and therefore they are doing as they please. But that is far from the truth since many of the photographers are defending their lives and incomes to the world of photography and their business. Today, the primary source of the creator of the photographer is the third party seller platform which is the Getty images or the Shutterstock. We do familiar with the two companies, but little of them know the bitter truth is concerning the two companies, which we are going to explain below.
The companies employ a stringent and demanding policy that is hampering the progress of the photographer and thus stripping off the profit and the right of the photographer. Here we will sum up several concerns that now exist within the current ecosystem.
Not every centralized thing are wrong, in fact, we do need a centralized standard such as currency and system so that it gives us certainty and several degrees of rigidity. What we do mean about centralized in this scenario is the photographer, in which here is the content creator is often left behind in the term of the profit generation process, making it a one-way process in which the company control the whole profit generation process and leaving the creator suffering.
- The pictures right
One of the central issues of the photographer here is the right. The right in this scenario is the right or the licensed photos. In this case, the creator is just don’t have any reason once they already submit their pictures inside the system of the platform. Even if the creator is selling the photos outside the system, they need to report back the profit to the platform otherwise they will be getting the legal ramification which is annoying.
- Injustice sharing of profit
These points actually correlate with the first point. This is actually the sad, grim truth about the world of photography where the creator is just gaining a trickle of the profit generated by the system, whereas the company receives more than 85% of the benefit. The professional photography is not merely randomly flashing your camera around and making a profit. It is actually a cumbersome task when sometimes the photographer needs to be in several difficult spots and often shoot thousands of pictures just to get one specific picture that suits the desired output.
- Pitch black system
What we mean here is the lack of the transparency in the big companies. We do realize that not all the thing are needed to be published to the public, but some points do require openness. But that is just what de big companies lack, where they are reluctant and even not willing to share their data concerning the licensing process, the profit generation and so forth. This is what upset the professional photographer, and thus such a cycle needs to be disrupted.

Disrupting The Current Ecosystem With Wemark
But luckily, as the technology progress, the world is becoming more and more decentralized, where there is merely a lot of disruption and groundbreaking invention that is very fundamental to the realm of business. The rise of startup businesses, especially the one who relies on the blockchain system are becoming predatory to the old ecosystem where they are destroying or at least giving alternatives to the old ecosystem that if proved to be injustice and inefficient. There are a lot of businesses that are currently reforming and thus providing a new business opportunity to make things even better. And such luck is also bestowed to the realm of photography, where a new startup is on the rise, called the remark platform.
Wemark is actually one of the most promising startups that will disrupt the whole old ecosystem that is hampering the creativity of the creator itself. As we can see, the creator is having a difficult time gaining profit, and this platform is actually the best platform to increase the benefit of the amateur and professional photographer alike. Here are several reasons why the wemark is worth trying.
- Gaining more advantage
The first and the most obvious reasons are the profit. We already know that the big companies are giving only a trickle of the strength whereas they are generating more and more profit daily. That is actually very troublesome and need to be changed since it will heavily discourage the content creator. In the wemark platform, the situation is just reversed, where the companies are gaining a trickle of profit per photos and the rest of the money goes to the creator.
This is what more interesting on the platform, where the decision making is entirely back to the user. The creator can sell their pictures for the prices that have been set by themselves, and thus is more rewarding for the creator. We do want to ensure that the creator is keeping their creativity and accordingly being rewarded for such effort. And to do that we need to give the creator more right and more role to determine in this form of business. To put it just, on this platform, the part of the creator is significantly higher compared to the previous old ecosystem that is diminishing the part of the creator.
- Transparency assured
One of the most critical factors In the business is giving the proportionate flow of information to the user or the customer. This is what makes them more appreciated and thus will convert them to a loyal customer In the meantime. Having a loyal customer is apparently one of the primary focus f the company, and one of the most critical points is having some degree of transparency. We do understand that not all kind of information is required to be published, but at least only the one which is critical such as the licensing and the profit generation process. Such information is essential to be released so that the customer or the creator understand for how much they need to pay, how much they need to spend money, and how much they will gain profit per photos.
- License distributed not centralized
In the artistry world such photography, one of the most crucial point is the license of the pictures. The grant will determine the ownership of the photos and thus make it protected by the law and gaining the creator the rights of their own creation which is obvious. But unfortunately, such cases did not occur in the big companies since they retain most of the license for themselves. The platform will give the license to all the photographers regardless of their skills and their photos quality and thus make the creator more liberty and right about what to do with their own images. They also don’t need to report back to the platform once they are making the profit to the images that have been licensed by the platform.
Becoming the part of the wemark platform is effortless. First, you need to make your own portofolio on their website. This is important since the platform need to know about your capacity and your skills also experiences concerning the photography. After creating the portfolio you can start to upload the photos of your own and to get the license, you need to pay several amounts of cash at one time. The payment here are using the token of cryptocurrency, and therefore it Is not very expensive in the end. And you don’t have to worry since the licensing is a one-time process and therefore you don’t have to pay several times for your licensing process.

The Road Map And The TGE Of Wemark
Every platform will have their own roadmap to determine their own degree of success. And this platform does have the roadmap. Here are several points of the roadmap of the platform.
- Middle and late 2017
2017 is the important year for the platform, where they are signing the contract of the NFX companies that specializes in the market research. The NFX are investing their money in the platform for about 1million dollars. The platform is also opening the waiting list for the contributors or the photographer that are about to sell their own photograph on the platform. And as the website claim, more than 1500 professional photographer are signing the contract just in the few weeks.
- Early to middle 2018
At this point, the platform is releasing the very first product, which it enables the user to create a profile and submit their own photos in the platform. There are about 20 thousand offered pictures just a month after the release of such content. This event is followed by gaining the advisors, which is several of notable individuals in the term of business, such lee torrents, as a lead marketing in canvas, Lars Perkins, founder of Picasa which has been purchased by Google and becomes the google photos and etc. the following month is the release of the whitepaper of the platform to become the guideline both for the platform and the user alike.
- Late 2018
This is yet another critical period of time for the company. The company will sell their token called the wemark token to the public for the first time. Such token will be used primarily for the transaction that is occurred within the system, and hopefully, that includes the purchase of the pictures as well. And in late 2018, the platform will be transformed into a full working marketplace where many can purchase the photos that have been provided by the photographer for some period of time.
And as for sale, here are some necessary information that you need to know
• The token supplies are about 135 million dollars
• Soft cap around 1.5 million
• Hard cap 8 million
• Price per token 0.20 US dollar per token
• Sale starts July 24th and ends at Aug 7th
• Token usage: licensing, accessing several wemark features
As we can see above, the token supply is meager compared to the other platform where they can reach billions. And the hard cap is also shallow, which is just about 8 million. Which mean that they only will sell that amount of the token, as the rest of the token is used for another purpose. And that is what makes the price per token is rather higher compared to the other token amount, and this will make the sale even more interesting since the token is worth investing for.
And the second most intriguing thing is, the allocation of the token supplies, here is the information concerning the token allocation.
• 38% token sale
• 37.5% reserved for community rewards and economic scaling
• 12% advisors&partnership
• 11% founding team and employees
• 1.5% bounty program
As we can see, the token allocation is rather unusual since the token and the community rewards are almost identical. No other platform is employing such allocation in the vicinity since they implement a huge proportion of the token supply to the sale alone. The board of advisors, the founding team and employees, are also gaining more token allocation.
What we can learn from this basic information here is, the company is dropping more token to the community to reward them for their contribution in building the companies, along with the founder team and the system. That is working along with the dream of the platform to give more reward and profit for the content creator and thus destroying the old ecosystem in which the creator is suffering since they just don’t get enough profit to continue on their project.

Overcoming the Impending Financial Issue through Traxion
The world is now set in a rapid motion, where the flow of information is almost instantaneously in almost every place. You can see the growth of the business nearly every day, and thanks to the blockchain, we can see the rapid growth of the crypto-based platform every day across the globe. Many of the business is also have disrupted the primary form of the conventional market and overtaking the business mainstream, so the result is the massive growth of the decentralized kind of business which is far from any traditional business which tends to be more centralized. The business growth nowadays the global economic optimism that is very delightful to see and feel in some place of the earth. But unfortunately, the reality kicks in, and it kicks hard. The global economic growth, as well as the significant innovation only felt in a quarter of the world, which are centered in the USA and Western Europe, and some in Far East Asia. But as for the rest of it, the African, the south-east Asian, and the rest of the world still stagnates and experience little to no impact of such turbulence.
The main reason for this occurrence is the economic gap between the Asian and the western countries. The difference is so full to the point where almost all sorts of capital that circulates in the world are centered in just both regions. The Asian and the rest of the world still struggling very hard to stabilize their countries and enhancing the structural basis for further economic improvement. But the lag is too far, so we don’t know when the Asian and the African nations are going to catch up the western countries. This phenomenon cannot be left standing, as the world leaders and the experts are formulating the solution for the rest of the world concerning their problems. But several issues are tough to tackle down, and those are several reasons why they are lagging behind the western countries.
When we talk about crime like the one that hampers progress, we don’t mean that many western nations are immune to the fraud. But the fact is, the corruption in the Asian and African government are way higher than the west of states and making their government are unable to tackle the most basic issue, which is the poverty. The poverty that is faced with many Asian nations is mostly systematic poverty which is the human-made poverty that is caused by the inability of the government to react or simply put, the ignorance of their people condition. There are a lot of negative consequences when a country is infested with corruption, which is the economic recovery will be tough due to the crime that taking the government’s money, and the construction that will never end due to the polemic of the project that is infested with crime.
Many developing countries are also having some degree of the trust issues against the government and the banking system. They perceive the banking system is a coherent evil and thus is not to be trusted. This makes few people are employing the services of the banks and thus making the transaction way harder. The transaction that can be conducted via bank is the simple and fastest form of an operation using digital credits rather a physical one. This makes the business are far from the bank services and thus making the industry harder to be approached. The bank also will provide several degrees of security to store the money, since it will be way safer than saving your millions of money in the bedsheet, or under the pillow. The most logical place to store the huge amount of money is the bank, and therefore more people should enter the service coverage of the bank.
One says that the technology is the key to the prosperity, and that is entirely true. Many western countries have been so successful in developing their countries because the master the proper technology to do it. Here in Asia, the technology adoption is way behind the western countries and therefore they are still maintaining their nations with the traditional way which are proved to be inefficient and ineffective. The adoption of technology is mandatory to make people’s life, and as well as the government and business affairs were easier. The adoption of technology in Asian nations is gradually increasing but at a languid pace. The penetration of technology is also required to open up a new market and thus creating a new business, just like the crypto-based platform is already doing it for years.
This is one of the most crucial issues in the developing countries, that is the root of the lag in technological adoption in so many Asian and African countries. The qualities of the education in the south-east Asian nations are quite lacking, where the infrastructure of the educational system in staggering conditions. In Indonesia alone, thousands of students are left without a proper teacher, making them improperly educated. The lack of educational system will make the countries lagging in almost every sector, such as the technology, economy, and so forth. Many citizens of it state will be encouraged to become a worker, rather than a businessman, which is not a good sign of an economic recovery.
Those issues are ravaging the countries in Asian and African regions, and thus creating a considerable prosperity gap between the western states with the rest of the world. As long as those issues stand out, poverty will still become a significant issue for the rest of the world. A solution is a need, to ignite the small economic movement, and to elevate the situation of the poor. It also needs to be transparent and open so that all people can enjoy the benefit of them.
To know more about the financial situation in many countries, you may refer to those web pages below.
Countering Financial Issues With Traxion
Fortunately, the situation is not as dire as we all imagine. More and more platform is growing to solve the financial issues by creating more business field that can be used to alleviate the poverty in some areas. The advancement of technology also allows many forms of business and job field to pop up and employing thousands of people monthly. The progress is tangible, and we can see it clearly in our own eyes, but that is still not tackling the five issues that we have already mentioned above. The financial problem that is faced with the world requires hand in hand cooperation between the government and the private sector to cope up, and thus ending the economic issue, and that is where the role of the Traxion platforms kicks in.
Traxion is a blockchain platform that is unique and different from the rest of the platform for several reasons. The platform, unlike with the other form of the platform is disrupting the whole financial situation. The current trend of the blockchain platform is just obstructing one particular business field such as the photography, the publisher and so forth. But that is not the solution that we seek since those solutions are too specific to be practical in the whole of the financial situation that is already broken and ravaged by corruption. The one thing that is disrupted by the traxion platform is the way of the transaction between the stakeholders, and this is very important since we can say that transaction is the vein of the business and economy, the easier it gets, the better of economic situation will be.
The platform will counter several issues, they are:
The traxion is not searching for market domination, but they want to bridge the economic activity between the stakeholders and thus making the economy much better and stable. Nowadays there are a lot of currencies that circulate in the world economy, and they are the cryptocurrency that is developed by the platform, and the fiat currencies that is the standard currencies just like dollars and euro. Those currencies need to be bridged so that they can be used in all forms of the transaction to make it easier for the customer to approach the market, no matter what currency they have. The solution also needs some broad coverage so that many merchants can apply this mechanism, and the platform becomes very practical for the people.
This platform also brings a daring quest which Is to provide the government some degree of transparency so that any the money that the government obtained be it the international aid, debt or whatsoever can be tracked and detected by the platform used. The transparency is one of the crucial issues as it is the reasons for the corruption that still lingers in the third world country. The slide will provide the deterrence effect to the corruptor so that they will not be corrupting the government’s money again. That is a very far step in destroying the corruption cycle in one country. The platform will display the current wealth of the government that is going to be distributed among the people, and thus the amount of the received money must be an exact number of the money that is displayed.
The development of small business is a good sign for the lower economy since they are the sign of the economic recoveries that is shown among the people. Those small businesses need to be ignited since they are the small business with small capital and in no capacity competing the big companies. The platform will provide the market and the means of the transaction for them so that the customer can access your goods safer, faster and better the market will also very wide since the platform will receive any money, be it the fiat currencies and the cryptocurrencies. In fact, the platform will encompass a massive amount of the small business so that they will be integrated into one ecosystem, which is the traxion ecosystem.
This is more like a long-term plan and goals. Once the process of the transaction has been speeding up, more and more people are growing their own business, the people gaining more money using the platform. Therefore the economic situation can be elevated, and more people will have their prosperity increased. This goal will become feasible after the usage of the platform has encompassed so many merchants and attract more users.

The Token Sale And ICO
Just like any other crypto platform that has their token, so that this platform is. The platform has their token named by the traction token or TXN and now is currently on sale. There is three type of sales that is occurred in the platform, which are the private sale, the pre-sale, and the crowd sale. The private sale has the cap around 10 million tokens and contains the bonus up to 50% of the token sale. The private sale is already over, and now the platform is moving to the pre-sale.
The pre-sale has the cap around 40 million tokens and will have the bonus starting from 40% to 10%, which declines by about 10% each week. Currently, the token sale almost reaches the cap, and the companies are preparing to meet the crowd sale, in the early of August 2018. The crowd sale yields the most significant amount of token that will be sold, which are about 200 million tokens and have no bonus. The period of the deal will take place about six weeks, and will be automatically concluded once the cap has already reached.
The token usage will be to do some transaction inside the platform, and also crucial for the user to get the reward too. The user can also vest the token so that they can gain the better price for each of their token in the future. the token also can be exchanged in any fiat currencies such as dollars and euro in any places.
