Introducing The World’s First Decentralized ICO, BlocNATION!

Komodo is expanding into the world’s largest and most interoperable, open blockchain network powered by Atomic Swap Technology, starting with our first Premier Partner: BlocNATION.

What is BlocNATION?



BlocNATION’s BLOC Token will be used to unlock crypto-payment capabilities for PouchNATION, Southeast Asia’s leading cashless payment community of events and venues.

The BlocNATION app will function as a hub for the token economy at PouchNATION events and venues. The app will enable users to hold altcoins, acquire event tickets, book stay at venues, top-up online, and get cash-back.

What is PouchNATION?

PouchNATION, established in 2012, gives people access to wristbands that allow cashless payments at events, festivals, and venues across borders.

They offer event organizers, brands, and hostels an end-to-end guest management platform for audiences ranging in size from 3,000-150,000 people. PouchNATION helps their clients manage the guest experience from ticketing, registration, cashless payments, and access control to social media engagement, brand activations, data and merchant management.

PouchNATION is currently serving Southeast Asia, and this BlocNATION update is accelerating partnership opportunities in the United States, Europe, and everywhere else in the world.

What problem does BLOC Solve?

BlocNATION’s BLOC Token will act as the universal currency of PouchNATION and remove many pain points that are common for event-goers and tourists. These problems arise due to varying fiat currencies that force people to exchange and perform extra steps when planning to attend festivals, conferences, concerts, etc.

How is BLOC using blockchain technology?

BlocNATION operates on its own decentralized blockchain powered by Komodo, which will also be integrated into Komodo’s atomic swap-powered BarterDEX.

When will BlocNATION’s dICO take place?

BlocNATION’s dICO will begin CET +7 on April 17, 2018, and the BLOC Token will be available for purchase via the website.

BlocNATION’s Review of Komodo’s Premier Partner Model:



“We chose Komodo because we wanted to expand the payment capabilities of our cashless payment network to deliver an even greater experience to our already happy customers. Komodo was the best option for us because they are the only place that can power our community with secure and borderless cryptocurrency pay options, in addition to launching our decentralized crowdfund. They have proven that they can offer the best security solutions in the world, while also offering us the greatest level of flexibility. Overall, the development team at Komodo is simply brilliant, and their advisory staff has been very professional in helping us prepare for our dICO launch. We are proud to be Komodo’s first Premier dICO!– BlocNATION Team
