Gizer, a fast growing NYC-based startup, has unveiled their GZR token presale with compliance partner SAFTLaunch. Gizer’s token (GZR) is an ERC20 utility token that will be made available to the general public on October 20, 2017. The presale opens at 1:00 PM UTC on October 20, 2017and is capped at $1M. GZR tokens will be distributed to the early contributors and will be issued at a discount. By opening the presale prior to the public token sale, Gizer will be capitalizing on the positive momentum the recent release of their mobile platform has generated.
Contributions in Ether (ETH), the native token of the Ethereum blockchain, will be accepted for both the presale and the public sale. Gizer will be offering the first 100 contributors a 15% discount, followed by a 10% discount for the next 400 investors. Accredited investors have an opportunity to contribute at an exclusive 20% discount via Gizer’s Simple Agreement for Future Tokens; done electronically on SAFT Launch. SAFT contributors can participate using Ether or USD.
The public crowdsale will open in early November. A total of 70,000,000 GZR will be available to the public during the sale. The remaining 30 percent will be retained by Gizer, with 10 percent to be allocated for the organization’s core development team and advisors. 15 percent will be retained for future releases of GZR items and 5 percent will go towards strategic partnerships and other marketing efforts.
The Gizer platform democratizes competition for mobile gamers, allowing gamers of any skill level to discover or create tournaments in real-time. Competitive events, while fundamental to the Gizer network, are only a single element to a much larger vision. Gizer’s network also serves to connect members of the gaming community in the app’s services feed, where individual freelancers or gaming businesses can sell their services or products. The marketplace aspect of Gizer brings the network full circle, connecting gamers to both hosts and services through its various feeds. Services and hosts have the ability to leverage each other’s presence on the platform, with hosts offering up their event’s visibility for prizes and merchandise sponsorships from various services or businesses hoping to grow their brand and influence.
Gamers can use GZR tokens to gain access to their Gizer Global Gaming Identity, or GG ID, by holding any amount of GZR in their wallet. The GG ID is a profile created on Gizer, which can be accessed by developers who adopt Gizer’s technology through the use of Gizer API. GG ID will consist of three parts: a customizable avatar, gamertag, and gaming statistics.
Gizer, in its ability to facilitate interactions across the entire gaming ecosystem, will be the first network to create sustainable economies built around the real-time connections made on the platform.
Gizer is a global gaming network that connects the entire gaming community – Gamers, Hosts, Services, Venues and Businesses.

The recently launched Gizer platform is available on the App store with a few thousand active mobile gamers. A public android release is scheduled for October 2017.
