Sharpay.io is excited to announce that new animated direct share buttons for sites with mobile responsive design and additional new features are now available to all webmasters.
After a long period of development, and we considered different users and their sharing styles, we are so excited that we made some major improvements in direct share buttons and added lots of new features. Webmasters now have a greater degree to customize their own direct share buttons for different users. We also refined the appearance of direct share buttons, making them more attractive and informative in desktop and mobile devices.
Where are they? For example, we install the latest direct share buttons on our FAQ, try it and share with your friends!
Let’s see some key improvements we have made for direct share buttons:
🔸 Cool share and reward animation. We designed a very cool, eye-catching share and reward animation for direct share buttons. Users can see a share caption and token reward flipping next to the direct share buttons. The token reward is displayed in the currency that set in “User’s Rewards”, and is synced with CoinMarketCap, that means users can always get the real time price calculated by CoinMarketCap. Now users are able to see what token rewards and how much they are going to get from each visit via their shared link! It can definitely attract more users to share!
🔸 Minimized aggregated share button for iOS and Android mobile devices. Our system will detect the user’s device and change the direct share button accordingly. If users are using a mobile device, the direct share buttons will be minimized and combined all social network icons into one share button icon, and that icon design will change based on the mobile device operating system. That is the minimized share icon will have two different designs, for iOS devices and Android devices. Users can click on the minimized share button, and it will expand a list of social networks for them to share news to. Users are able to see the sharing icons familiar to them. That is a high customized share button design for better user experience.
🔸 Comfortable and easy to click share icon for mobile devices. The size of share icon for mobile devices is selected taking into account the studies that we have found. The optimal size of touching elements on the screen of mobile devices is 11mm which we chose and it is correspondent to the average size of the point of contact of the finger with the surface of the screen. We take care of every users, and make sure everyone can share news easily.
🔸 Optimized share icon shapes and display. We spent a lot of time optimizing the display location of social media icons relative to neighboring icons. Because all the icons are different in shape and it is not easy to bring them together with the best visual effect, but we did finally did it! In the widget code, we added a spacing and size calculation depending on the selected display options of the widget buttons.
🔸 Up to date reward size display. To show the token reward size in the direct sharing’s animation, we added the action controller to “Rest” file to get the reward amount for widgets. Now, the token reward size is displayed for direct sharing.
🔸 Worldwide currency for showing reward. There are 7 top currency units webmasters can choose to display the token reward size, they can show the token reward in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), U.S. dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), Chinese yuan (CNY), Korean won (KRW) and Russian ruble (RUB).
🔸 Diversified button shapes. We added different shape options (Square, Rounded, Circle) for direct share buttons, webmasters can change different button shapes to fit their web design.
🔸 Customized icon background color. In the “No background color” option, webmasters are able to remove the background color of the social network button icons and select “Color icons” to choose their favorite color for their button icons.
🔸 Additional “copy link” button. We added “copy link” button for direct sharing. Webmasters can add a button for users to just copy the website link and share it to other social networks and friends.
🔸 Handy share via email button. We added “share via email” button for direct sharing. Webmasters can add a button for users to just copy the website link and share it to other social networks and friends.
🔸 Limited icons display with smart social network sorting. We recommend displaying 3 social media icons. According to recent studies, this increases the conversion of sharing. Together with our smart social network sorting, users will see their favorite ones first. Others will be available in the next button.
🔸 Flexible button size option for desktop direct share buttons. Beside the standard button sizes (16px, 24px, 32px, 48px) for desktop direct share buttons, we added a sliding bar for webmasters to adjust and change their button size.
🔸 Real time desktop and mobile buttons design preview. You can switch and instantly preview your customized direct share button design in desktop and mobile version. It saves a lot of time in designing your own direct share buttons to fit your websites!
Don’t forget to check out the latest direct share buttons on our FAQ! If you have any questions or problems setting up direct share buttons, please feel free to contact our Admin (https://t.me/sharpay_admin).

This is a true roller-coaster-ride-story of launching ICO in Hong Kong in 2018, insights that you don’t know but should know.
Figure 1: The roller-coaster ride of launching an ICO
14th Jan 2018: 1 ETH = $1,384, “The peak of ETH and hype of ICO.”Chris, who I knew for over 10 years, the founder of a Shenzhen-based software company approached me for the second time, persuading me to join him to transform his company from a software development house to a SaaS-based company underpinned by a self-developed Blockchain platform. Given my vested interests in Blockchain and being an entrepreneur; and knowing Chris had received a pre-A round investment of around $3M; seeing 30 odds software developers rolling days and nights competing for next sprint and batch of feature release; I accept his invitation and took a role with strategic focus on the International market development and fundraising.
We were working tirelessly to launch the first commercialized blockchain platform in China in the real estate sector and providing KYC and asset tokenization services to financial service providers and real estate companies. The Platform finally went online on May 2018 and we were able to register a number of clients in the first week of launching the platform. On the flip side, the business required more money to continue, to support the expansion and platform operation and development. We started with a rather traditional approach, i.e. going after VCs with the aim of raising an additional $4M at company pre-money valuation of $16M and, it was not going to conclude in time, and soon enough we were introduced to what’s was new to me at the time — Initial coin offerings (ICO).
ICO just had its Epic year 2017 as ETH peaked at Jan 2018 with a straggling price of $1,384. 97% of ICO was able to reach its soft cap (typically $1M~3M), and many of them reached its hard cap, i.e. $30M if not more in 2017. Given we are one of few “reversed-ICO,” i.e. having a working platform ahead of ICO and with real clients who were actually paying for the use of our services; Our 30 odd software developer made us look like an army competing with other Blockchain startups. It seems to be a very logical thing to start our own ICO at the time. The only question is — how?
5th March 2018, 1 ETH = $865, “Whoever told you doing ICO was easy simply haven’t done one.”Raising money via ICO was told to be easy or at least pre 2018. It looked like a few geeks who can write a whitepaper will be able to walk away with millions of dollars. That perhaps was the case before 2018. The gust of wind started turning from late 2017, when China took the shot on ICO and banned it completely on Sep 4th 2017. The ICO market reacted rapidly and converted from public sale driven in 2017 to private sale driven in early 2018. This resulted in an influx of crypto-funds — a new sector who benchmarks themselves as investment bank of the crypto-world. Meanwhile, a counter-servicing consulting industry was born — ICO advisory.
In essence, the ICO advisory firms provide service over four different phases.
1. Due diligence phase — essentially develop a set of documentation supporting your ICO campaign. i.e.
a. The Whitepaper that highlights your solution, Token economy that underpinned your project, ICO plan, your team etc.
b. An Investor deck for private sale
c. Legal opinion
d. Sales & purchase agreement
2. PR & Marketing phase
a. Online channels i.e. ICO website
b. Social media marketing i.e. Linkedin, facebook
c. ICO listings, KOL review
d. Press coverage i.e. Forbes, medium
3. Fundraising phase
a. private sale stage 1 — typical 5%- 10% of your hard cap
b. Private sale stage 2–80% — 85% of your hard cap
c. Public sale — 10% of your hard cap
4. Post ICO phase
a. Public listing on an Crypto exchange
b. Market making
c. OTC (over-the-counter) trading
5th April 2018, 1 ETH = $381, “Personas of Crypto world.”ETH hit the bottom early April 2018, but Crypto world continued to evolve, and a few personas emerged, and some of them made buck loads, i.e. Crypto exchange, lots of them eventually pulled out of the crypto world.
ICO companies — they are your typical startups but with a mixture of intents. Very few of them stuck to the calling of setting up a DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) and kept on developing and growing the platform and business in 2018. The way I see it — if you had no real collateral and equity invested in a business but managed to raise $30M to develop a platform, but all of a sudden your company value declined 70% as ETH priced dropped down to $381 from $1,384 in less than three month, what are you going to do? Mind you, most of ICO Company’s valuation based on ETH or BTC, and most of them kept Crypto tokens instead of converting them to Fiat-currency. So most of them panicked and started selling ETH, the snowball started to roll in June 2018.
Crypto investors (professional crypto funds) — they are early bitcoin / ETH miners and investors, some family offices. They are typically investing in ICO companies during the private sale phase. Depends on which stage that they invested in, it is common to get somewhere around 20–50% discount of the listed public sale price. The offer comes with a lock-down period, i.e. 3–6 month when these token will be unlocked and open for sale. Considering most of ICO listed in exchange were getting 2x to 10x of growth in the first 3 months of ICO public listing, this is definitely a lucrative business to invest in.
Crypto investors (public individuals) — they are an individual, i.e. crypto enthusiast, speculators and ordinary individuals who have no clue of what ICO/Cryptocurrency is but sold with the belief that they are buying the next Bitcoin. Lowest trophic level of the food chain and many of them lost a fortune in investing in the cryptocurrency in 2018.
ICO advisory firms — these are the most chaotic yet sophistic persona of them all. They are early ICO practitioners, marketing companies, legal and law firms, financial companies and play a role throughout the ICO phase. Many of them are well equipped with content knowledge and expertise in their corresponding areas, i.e. in trading, digital marketing, legal and regulatory practice but remarkably few of them had actual ICO experience. Considering there were less than 1,000 ICO launched by the end of 2017 globally (909 to be exact according to icodata), there are just not enough experts with the end-to-end experience. Despite all that, in the age of gold rush, you will take whatever tools you can get to succeed in the competition. Who made most of the money in California gold rush (1848–1855), I won’t know for sure, but I am certain Levi Strauss — founder of Levi Jeans definitely made the most successful business out of the gold rush by selling a pair of blue jeans to the working man — “For men who toil.”
5th May 2018, 1 ETH = $806, “how much it costs to run an ICO.”Media likes to report on how much money startups fundraised via an ICO, but you rarely see anyone talk about the cost of doing ICO. So how much does it cost from planning to the closure of an ICO? It is a rather large amount, which also depends on many factors, i.e. your project and solution maturity, country of your ICO, the advisors you are working with, timing. Our ICO were conducted mostly in Hong Kong, if I decouple direct cost, i.e. cost of staff with the indirect cost of doing ICO, i.e. money that you need to pay to external service providers, the indirectly cost alone is in the range of $500K and $3M. What the heck! Yup, that was the cold hard reality, which is why most of the startups just can’t afford it.
· The single biggest cost item is to pay for listing on a Crypto exchange. Large exchanges, i.e. Huobi, Bittrex can charge you a million dollar to be listed.
· Advisory service during the due-diligence phase can be in between $30K to $300K
· Legal fee is another small fortune, i.e. $50K — $80K to get a legal opinion to certify and vouch that the ICO token is not a security token.
· Cost of running a marketing campaign can burn $100K per month subjects to the media platform and scale of your campaign.
Many successful ICO fundraised somewhere of $15M to $50M in 2017 and Q1 2018. 55% of ICO failed to complete in Q2 of 2018, i.e. reaching the soft cap. Ones who completed ICO are only getting a fraction of what’s in 2017, i.e. $1 ~ $5M. That’s one of the fundamental reason of why the majority of ICO cease to exist towards to the end of 2018, as the cost of doing ICO is almost level up to the amount that the company can fundraise.
5th Sep 2018, 1 ETH = $264, “Scams and gags.”ETH rose up to its last peak in May 2018, i.e. $806 and it has since been experiencing a steady decline. By Q3 of 2018, the cost of doing ICO was no longer economical for most companies who are still in ICO. The party had finally come to an end. No one wants to talk about it; blockchain companies no longer want to associate themselves with ICO as this whole thing was a scam and gags. But was it?
ICO started well as it offered an alternative path to startups to raise sizable funding without substantial business at early stage, which was not possible before it. The issue has been germinating since people had a false expectation on the underlying technology, as Blockchain is not the panacea for everything; “Greed and speculation” spoiled young startups like giving excessive amount cash to a 10-year-old before he knows what to do with it.
5th Feb 2019, 1 ETH = $107, “Party is over, what then now?”I am not a cryptocurrency investor, and I don’t know enough about this market to see where it will go. However, I am a believer in history always holds signs to the future if you know where to look. Behind any ICO and any crypto token, there is a common ground — someone like to call it Blockchain, industry experts like to call it Distributed Ledger Technology. Regardless of its name, you need to understand the fundamental problem that technology resolves that others cannot, and know to how to identify a DApp powered by a viable use case to make an informed investment decision.
Where you will likely find the successful use cases, we are yet to see a killer DApp in the B2C world, and I think it will continue to be the case. Is Bitcoin the one? I don’t think so, it is not user-friendly, same goes with most of the common Cryptocurrency. I am skeptical about B2C Blockchain Apps and ICO companies as I see they are trapped in the paradox between being efficient and user-friendly with being is autonomous and trustless. Can you imagine if Uber will work as efficiently and user-centric as it is now, if it was built on the decentralized and autonomous model? Who is going to pay the developers that work towards a unified goal? On the same token, Linux is an open source OS which hasn’t been widely accepted like windows, not because of the technology but its design principles.
I am in favor of Blockchain companies who focus on the B2B space as well as on the protocol level, where they gaze on enterprise problems and interests underpinned by 6 intrinsic features of blockchain with long term potential for disruption and transformation.
1. Distributed shared data over peer-to-peer (P2P) networks reduce single points of failure;
2. Consensus-driven trust cuts out the intermediaries;
3. Immutable transactions ensure trust
4. Hashing-based data ensures integrity and security
5. Automated smart contracts promote touchless interactions across process and value chains
6. Permissioned and permissionless flavors give enterprise users flexibility
These six blockchain features are changing the way we think about business transactions, data storage, and even industry value chains and associated revenue models.
