Orlan – Russian company, which since 2013 is engaged in supply of concrete mixtures for construction sites throughout Russia and developing the world's first full-fledged marketplace, directly uniting the manufacturers and buyers of the Orlan System concrete, announced of the project transfer to the blockchain and its derivation to the procedure for the initial coin offering (ICO).

ORLAN is the same name for the Russian company working on the building materials market since 2013 and the project created by the company's founders in 2015 – the world's first web-tool (marketplace) of suppliers-manufacturers and buyers of the most popular and demanded brands of concrete mixtures for major and private constructions needs. An important competitive advantage of the project is that the company outputs to ICO a fully completed working project, and does not create it from scratch. All raised funds will be used to scaling the project and improve its existing functionality.

 

ORLAN platform is presented as full software for personal computers; all work is performed through the web interface in the cloud, through the company's website, and also in the form of simple and user-friendly mobile applications for iOS and Android. Software for PCs and mobile applications are built on the principle of simple and simple clean design (flat design); they contain only the key functions necessary to place a purchase order for concrete and to control its delivery and pouring, and therefore do not require special training. Users of any degree of training can work in the software product ORLAN, such as site managers, departments, teams, and linear workers, buyers and end-private-users (for example, owners of country houses).

 

A specific and one of the key features of the Orlan System platform in comparison with the existing analogues of their segment of web scrapping tools for the purchase of construction materials is the precise focusing on concrete mixtures and the use of blockchain technology.

 

The capabilities of the blockchain will allow solving critical questions of the platform's effectiveness and safety. These include the emission of Orlan tokens, which will be implemented during the ICO and further act as an internal cryptocurrency platform, through which participants will be able to use its services and make mutual exchanges with each other. The execution of the project's Smart-contracts will not be subjected to the possibility of manipulation by a third party and will ensure a transparent and unchanged fulfillment of the conditions, the results of which will be recorded in the blockchain. The most significant types of Smart-contracts include: an independent auction for the purchase of a concrete mixture from a particular plant; the private individual investment contract for crypto-currencies in the ICO of the Orlan System project and the subsequent success fee allocation that the marketplace charges from the plant at the time the funds are transferred from the client, and, finally, a series of contracts for using the Orlan token as an internal payroll unit between the Orlan System platform participants, which can be used to receive an additional discount when buying concrete, for ordering additional laboratory expertise of the concrete mixture and for additional promotion of the plant on the marketplace site with the aim of increasing attention and attracting new customers.

 

Scalability and calculations speed due to the developed distributed computer network. Ethereum platform (ERC20) was chosen as a blockchain that will be able to solve all the above tasks.

 

“We at Orlan System believe that the symbiosis of such technologically innovative solutions such as the UBER-model for the construction materials market and modern blockchain networks supporting the execution of Smart-contracts will be blown up by serious architectural and economic advantages over centralized services,” says the founder of Orlan company and the head of its ICO Andrey Lupii

 

According to the company's representatives, the ICO project Orlan System seamlessly continues the course on the tokenization of real sector assets initiated by representatives of the industry businesses in 2017. So, one of the first projects offering investors the participation in the development of a real infrastructural scope for crypto-currencies was the Russian scientific and production start-up ZrCoin, which collected $ 7.07 million from 3955 investors on the Waves platform for the launch of two synthetic zirconium dioxide production lines. And, the electronic option to buy construction sand Sand Coin completed pre-ICO in six days, collecting the necessary $ 230,000 in August 2017. In turn, the gold-mining industry is enjoying heightened interest among ICO-enthusiasts. For example, Bitcoin Bullion, DigitalTangible, and Amagi Metals projects offer different forms to connect gold and digital payment technologies. A Dubai-based Islamic fintekh start-up OneGram signed a contract with GoldGuard to create a crypto asset secured by gold. One of the largest ICO projects with Russian roots in this industry was GoldMint in 2017 - a blockchain platform that operated with GOLD digital assets, 100% secured by physical gold. The platform launched by a group of Russians attracted about $ 5 million per day during the ICO.
