Having successfully sold two million BTR tokens ahead of schedule at the pre-ICO, international project called Boosteroid starts ICO on October 23. The key difference between Boosteroid and other startups is that it will be implemented regardless of the ICO results: the computing facilities are already being built.

Boosteroid is a cloud services platform that provides convenient access to computing power, storage, software products and other functionality.

The project will allow to abandon expensive personal computers in favor of a powerful remote service with a user-friendly interface and a simple management. A computer is able to carry out a variety of tasks in the “cloud” – from working with texts to analyzing DNA.

Today the prices of cloud computing computing rent offered by market leaders — Amazon WS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud — are very high, so this service is still the privilege of the “elite”. This situation spurred experts to create Boosteroid.

Not only have users to pay a lot for computing power rent offered by market leaders but also face difficulties when trying to take this rent. It is very challenging even for advanced users to go through the rental procedure that includes complex settings and requires a lot of time.

To expand computing facilities and make price of computing power rent competitive and available for everyone, the team has decided to hold the ICO.

Boosteroid ICO will include three stages

According to Boosteroid founder Ivan Shvaichenko, this is because the team doesn’t need the total amount of investments at once.

“We will use the funds raised after the first ICO stage to set up electricity connection, get the premises ready to the setup and launch of computing facilities, purchase of the first facilities and further software development to provide convenient access to them. Funds raised after the second ICO stage will be used for equipment purchase and setup to start the operation of our computing facilities. Funds raised after the third stage will be used to further expand computing power of our project”, – noted Boosteroid founder.

The first stage starts on October 23, 2017 at 9:00 (CET) and ends on November 6, 2017 at 21:00 (CET). ICO can be completed ahead of schedule if the needed investments are raised. Initial price of 1 BTR is $0,48, final price – $0,58. Investors will be able to exchange ETH, BTC, BCH, LTC for a total of 100 000 000 BTR tokens.

The next 700,000,000 BTR tokens will be available during two following ICO stages:

  • from November 27 to December 11, 2017. The total number of BTR tokens: 300,000,000. The starting price of 1 BTR token is $1.08, the final price is $1.38
  • from January, 15, 2017 to February 15, 2018. The total number of BTR tokens: 400,000,000. The starting price of 1 BTR token is $1.88, the final price is $2.78

Profits for the investors

Investors interested in the Boosteroid project will be able to trade BTR tokens at a higher rate (BTR will become available on the main cryptocurrency exchanges after the second ICO stage).

Currently the minimum price for one hour computing power rent* offered by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud is $6,5 to $10,5. Boosteroid offers the same service only for 1 BTR. Accordingly, BTR token rates will grow. We expect the following growth –  $6.

*computing power on.the basis of eight NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphic cards; two Intel Xeon E5 2680v4 processors; RAM 256Gb; SSD 960Gb.

  1. to Squeeze Google and Amazon on the Cloud Computing Market? heh 🙂 If you really have such technical characteristics, then this is definitely a success! And I hope the cost of your cloud computer will not be too high.

  2. I have not yet seen ICO in 3 stages!
    Usually everyone wants everything at once.

    I’ve read your project in detail and it seems to me that BTR will grow.
    I personally don’t need such huge capacities but I’m sure that I can more easily resell the tokens.

    It’s progressive project, I will take part in the ICO.

    I’m waiting for the first stage

  3. “Boosteroid and other startups is that it will be implemented regardless of the ICO results: the computing facilities are already being built.” – I think it will be something intresting, couse I have not seen such a project

  4. The idea of the project is interesting to me

    Do not misunderstand me))
    But suppose I bought a token, what can I do with it, how to apply it?

  5. The project is worth attention. Compare with the Amazon may of course early, but I support the idea, I hope the guys will succeed

  6. read their whitepaper,
    the idea is interesting, but how much they will implement it. They have written that regardless of the success of ICO the project will still start, there are sponsors who are ready to invest in the project. ICO is conducted to a greater extent, so that everyone can make money by selling tokens on stock exchanges. I do not know how real this is, but I was interested in buying tokens.

  7. 1 BTR token corresponds to the cost of one hour computing power.
    It is possible to use tokens to pay for a Boosteroid computing power rent or trade them at a higher price on the main cryptocurrency exchanges.

  8. Yes, and buying tokens released by the Boosteroid project, investors will be able to:
    1. Gain profits from selling them at a higher price.
    Today the minimum price for computing power rent ranges from $ 6.5 to $ 10. Boosteroid offers the same service only for 1 BTR.
    2. Pay for a rent of computing facilities at the lowest price.

  9. I like the idea of the project!
    I have read that computing tools are already being built regardless of the ICO results.

    Then what will investors get for their money?

  10. Yes, and buying tokens released by the Boosteroid project, investors will be able to:
    1. Gain profits from selling them at a higher price.
    Today the minimum price for computing power rent ranges from $ 6.5 to $ 10. Boosteroid offers the same service only for 1 BTR.
    2. Pay for a rent of computing facilities at the lowest price.

  11. Well, the second option is not yet interesting to me, I do not need such capacities, but profits from selling is already a good proposal!

  12. Your project does not look like regular ICO, which is just trying to raise money.
    I see the perspectives of your growth.
    And the fact that the project will develop regardless of the result of ISO inspires confidence.

    I will be happy to support you!

    And this is a good opportunity to get a part of the project (even a small one), which later on with the success will increase and can generate revenue. Agree – a good prospect)

    There is another reason why I invest. It’s to help you.
    develop. After all, my modest investment will help the project to rise. And moreover – my help will give impetus to the development of the industry.

  13. Yes, Im agree with u.
    In the coming years a huge number of new investors will enter this market. All of them will seek to buy a crypto currency.
    What do you think will happen to her course?
    Especially when you consider that the flagship of the industry – Bitcoin – has already produced and sold out 16 million coins out of 21 million, which can be released at all.
    That is, the offer is limited, the deferred demand is huge due to the attractiveness of this asset for a huge audience.

  14. if you don’t need the power, you can re-sell their output over time.

    The demand for rent of cloud computing is constantly growing, and their price is much lower than that of Amazon and others. The more that colloquial tokens are limited!
    This always has a positive effect on currency growth

    And generally speaking, there are many factors for growth, read the white paper, everything is clear.

  15. Yes, it’s always dangerous to put your money somewhere
    But it’s worth investing, when the currency is not tied to anything and there are no factors for its growth.

    And then you can see that it is tied to the service, so the investments will not burn in any way and there are many factors for growth, beginning with the fact that the BTR is released a limited number and ending with the popularity that this topic is gaining in the world.

    If you understand the project, it does not matter, in this or in some other, you can immediately understand where a profitable transaction, and where it does not even smell)

  16. good project for investment
    I myself do not need such power but i can re-sell their output over time.

    The demand for rent of cloud computing is constantly growing, and their price is much lower than that of Amazon and others. The more that colloquial tokens are limited!

    this greatly affects the growth of currency growth

  17. It is possible to use tokens to pay for a Boosteroid computing power rent or trade them at a higher price on the main cryptocurrency exchanges. I thik its so great

  18. ICO is a transaction based on trust.
    I perfectly understand people who are afraid for their money.

    It happens that some enterprising cheaters simply cheat, conduct an ICO for a project that they did not intend to develop. This is and nothing can be done about it (
    Unfortunately…

    But I, as an investor, are very pleased with such projects as this one!
    I like to support projects that have potential, so on their success, I myself can earn.

    The fact that you disclose all your plans for the development of the project, conduct an open dialogue with investors and will continue your work on projects regardless of the results of ICO, destroying this wall on the road to trust.

    I understand the investors who invested 2 000 000 on the Pre-ICO and I will certainly pay my fare on October 23rd.
    Because if you see the growth of the project even before the ICO itself, you can not delay

  19. Yes, many are afraid to invest. Especially if the project has not started yet.
    But there is a lot of information about it and it’s rather interesting to watch its development.

    I hope that everything will turn out well, because I will be part of the ICO
    I always use opportunities. Starting with $ 0.48 is not bad.
    Risks are not great, but what opportunities! Bitcoin didnt immediately cost $ 5,600

  20. I know that there are many people who have invested and were able to earn money, but there are those who lost their investments ..
    What makes you think that this is the project in which it is worth investing?
    Maybe it’s another bubble

  21. Many are afraid to invest because they do not understand when and where to do it. Of course, if you do not understand, it’s easy to get on scammers
    And if you think so, then what is the point of doing this?

  22. Maybe I don’t understand, I’m just saying that it’s risks to invest in ICO, because there are a lot of scammers.
    Or are you 100% sure that these guys are not like that?

  23. IСO has already started.The starting price of 1 BTR token is $ 0.48, the final price is $ 0.58
    I hope the results will be positive, because I bought tokens for their growth

  24. Maybe everything in this life, but why not try it? If you treat everything like that, then how can you earn money if you do not trust anyone?
    Read about the project, turn white parer, compare with the others, if you have experience.

  25. I don’t perceive life in black, just cautious about my investments.
    I read the white paper but didn’t see how to make money on this project

  26. I invested a decent amount in BTR, so I also hope for its growth)

    But I see the perspectives of they growth.
    And the fact that the project will develop regardless of the result of ISO inspires confidence.
    So I don’t worry

  27. Ok, if this project already has its own investors and they will continue to develop the project regardless of the results of ICO, why do they need ICO at that time?

    Maybe I don’t understand something?

  28. That faster to buy and setup of equipment to start computing facilities, expand computing power of project.
    And in general to declare yourself and give the opportunity to my people to take part in this project.
    It’s like buying shares from a business that is developing
    people use Amazon, because there are no cheaper analogues.
    And Amazon can’t put the price lower, because they charge so much!
    it will not be profitable for him.

    That’s why they created a Boosteroid!)
    To make these capacities available to every user of the World Wide Web, not just big data companies.

    Due to our own architecture and constant capacity utilization, the cost of cloud computing is significantly reduced. Therefore, they will be able to provide the service at a price much lower than offered by leading market players.

    Guys are real fellows and created a really relevant and progressive project!

    Respecting them for it

  29. well, maybe these three stages will somehow help them.
    let’s see, with some side it’s good that they will develop the project, regardless of the results of the ICO, this at least inspires confidence

  30. So I’m talking about this, usually startups are completely dependent on ICO and in such situations, it’s worth thinking about investing money or not.
    With these guys everything is transparent and understandable, so I invest in them and don’t worry)

  31. Why do you trust the project about which you know so little?
    Why do you even think that the project will go down and fight against such giants as Amazon and others?

  32. Yes, they don’t have Bill Gates, Sergey Brin or Vitalik Buterin in their team for now. However, their team has enough experience to build computing facilities, create software to provide convenient access to them and make cloud computing available to every user.
    Gues will continue to develop the project regardless of the results of ICO. This already removes all risk from the project

  33. Guys, did you hear that Busteroid is changing the concept? They have already decided on the location – it will be Georgia and have changed a little the conditions for conducting ISO and the bounty conditions. And at the end of this year will release a demo version of the project

  34. Yes, I already know this information.
    These guys are more and more inspiring confidence in their project. With such efficiency and approach to business, they really can compete with such cloud giants as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud.

  35. Guys who are more or less watching the project, who knows when the demo version will be released, I only know that at the end of November but when I don’t know(
