The ICO project in one paragraph: YouRa is a universal communication platform with crypto currency and fiat currency support. We have both a communication app with all the chat, group chat, sharing, broadcasting mambo jambo and also attached crypto and fiat wallets, which will allow sending and receiving payments from your contacts. It is not the first project on this subject and it will definitely not be the last, however I really like the user interface and the new chat features it offers, such as broadcasting a message, walkie talkie mode and even banning someone in a group for a certain period.
What makes Youra different: As I see things, Youra is not very different than other projects on the market, however I like their approach and that they already have a working product, even if for now it is mostly used in the corporate environment.
Token utility: YRC tokens will have direct application in the project network as a currency for inside transactions. They will allow to cover the audience of the United States and Canada and will increase the attractiveness of the platform for potential investors from these countries.
Actual partnerships or strategic relationships with other companies or organizations: As I found out directly from Youra officials, preliminary negotiations have already been held on cooperating with Gazprom Media Holding. If the negotiations will be a success, this could be huge.
Raised funds usage after pre-sale finishes: 28% research&development, 43% marketing expenses, 7% legal fees, 10% ICO operating expenses and 12% payments to initial investors who supported the project at the early beginning. To be honest, this last 12% looks like early investors already want to recover the investment rather than considering it a long-term one.
Token sale schedule: Pre-sale Jan 1st 2018 - Mar 1st 2018 / Token sale May 1st.2018 - June 1st 2018.
