holoride says its RIDE token will go on public sale on the Elrond Network at the end of November, providing additional benefits for users.
holoride has announced that it is debuting the RIDE token on Elrond Network’s strategic accelerator platform, the Maiar launchpad. The Audi-backed company, which is building the future of in-vehicle experiences, is launching its RIDE token with a public sale at the end of November. This is in preparation for holoride’s anticipated market launch in the second half of next year.
According to holoride, RIDE serves as the utility token for its platform. In addition, this is also at the core of its NFT-powered content ecosystem – resident on the Elrond Network. Furthermore, RIDE will provide additional benefits and enhanced user engagement as user incentives. The company’s vision is to transform every vehicle ride into a memorable adventure by merging vehicle movement with extended reality content. According to holoride CEO and co-founder Nils Wollny, the RIDE token will facilitate a holistic experience. In Wollny’s words:
“The RIDE token will be essential for building a vibrant and sustainable economy for the holoride ecosystem, connecting car manufacturers, content creators, brands, and passengers, and enabling them to capture value along the way.”
In order to realize this objective, the Elrond blockchain will provide support for the RIDE token and the content economy. Elrond, which is basically a technology hub for the new internet, uses a smart contracts execution platform in its application.
Beniamin Mincu, Elrond Network CEO, expressed his company’s delight with aiding holoride in facilitating its vehicle virtual experience. According to Mincu:
“With strong support from Audi, holoride is leading a new innovation front that has the potential to be transformational for the automotive industry and bring Elrond technology into the hyperconnected cars of the future. We are thrilled to accelerate the adoption of a new technology and business vertical as the first project on the Maiar Launchpad.”
