IP.Gold is an IP address management and investment company that maximizes the monetization and market value of IP address assets. IP addresses, specifically IPv4 addresses, i.e. 220.127.116.11, have a significant value outside of connecting us to the internet or serving web pages. Online advertising, social media, content publishing, Internet security, proxy/VPN, Blockchain and more wouldn’t be possible without IP addresses.
IP.Gold’s product is the IP.Gold ecosystem which maximizes monetization of services which are delivered on IP addresses. It takes IP addresses and then assigns them to services in its revenue generation lifecycle. It allows IPs to get multiple services delivered simultaneously. Depending on the phase it is on in the lifecycle, it allows a single service to be delivered to the IP on a long-term basis as well.
The benefit here is that there is long-term revenue stability as well as short-term revenue maximization. It is highly scalable and as more IP addresses add up the revenue increases.
IP.Gold plans to leverage Smart Contracts and the Blockchain technology for expanding into secure IP address transfers, automated escrow-backed asset transfers and for crypto payments for IP address assets. It would later utilize AI and automation as well.
Potential for Idea
Given the fact that the digital assets industry is already a great success, there is certainly great potential for the idea. Moreover, since the idea is scalable, it is here to stay for long. However, it comes down to the team to decide how far they can take the idea.
When it comes to marketing, the IP.Gold team has left no stone unturned. On their Telegram group, they have 25,470 members! On Facebook, over 400 people follow them, and on Twitter, they are followed by 19,300 followers!
