Meet Our First 100,000 Users!

We’re delighted that Opu Labs has reached a first major milestone — exceeding 100,000 registered users. It’s not only reassurance that there’s significant need for a blockchain-backed skincare solution — it’s evidence that what we’re building is already making a difference.

The data has us very excited. Of 100K registered users, 38K completed skincare profiles! Looking at our user stats so far, some interesting details and trends are emerging.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the key findings:

Gender

Given our focus on blockchain thus far, we’re very pleased to see 37% of our audience is female — a percentage much higher than a typical ICO audience. Yet with 23.9K men sharing their skincare information, this provides a very strong user base for those interested in the emerging men’s skincare market.

Age

In terms of the age distribution of our users, we see a wide range — from teenagers to a decent percentage over 60. However, the largest group is found among those aged 25–35: 39.5%.

User Location

One of our most exciting statistics is that we are seeing user registrations from 230 countries — essentially covering the entire globe! We’re definitely seeing a great deal of traction in Asia — Thailand, China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and India — where two-thirds of the global mobile phone users reside. But the largest single country (as previously reported) is Vietnam which accounts for 17.9% of the total. Brazil, Russia, Ukraine, EU, Nigeria and the US make up the remainder of the top countries.

Skin Type

We ranked skin type according to the three main criteria: dryness, oiliness, and sensitivity; on a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high). And in each case the vast majority ranked their skin types as between a 5 and 6. The average score for each was dryness at 5.60; oiliness, 5.70; and sensitive, 5.62.

Skincare Budget

One of the key data points we will be tracking is consumer budget and our average user spends $251 per month on skincare. Impressively, some 25% of our users typically spend over $300 per month. Overall, our profiled users spend $9.3M per month which means almost $112M per year.

Skin Concerns

By far the biggest skincare concern we see from our users is acne; a condition which affects nearly three quarters (70%) of them. Given the young audience we have this is not surprising — and we plan to focus quite a bit on acne. Other concerns identified — accounting for 30% of the users — included: blackheads, dryness, aging, redness, dullness, wrinkles, and uneven tone.

So…what does this data tell us? First, we have already gathered a significant group of users who spend a lot on skincare and cover the entire globe. And with this picture of our users and their concerns emerging, we can now begin to tailor our platform to their needs. This type of insight is the kind which brands, dermatologists, and product specialists can use in their efforts to make products and services more effective everyone.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements.

Opu Community Update: Whitepaper Version 2.2 Ready

We continue to get great feedback on our whitepaper and tokenomics model. Version 2.2 of our whitepaper has just been published with further details on our token allocation model and plans for a repurchase program.

To satisfy a 2% penetration of the online skincare market and to maintain a sufficient supply of OPU coins, we established a Growth Reserve. Going forward, we believe penetration in the skincare app category can be much higher, possibly even 30%. And with our plans to provide APIs to 3rd party developers, we need to be prepared.

Growth Reserve tokens will be issued primarily for rewards and only sold when the market can’t satisfy Opu Network demand. When tokens are purchased for transactions, opportunities to sell will be first given to public holders.

Further information coming soon in a dedicated tokenomics blog post.

Our social communities are steadily growing.

Here are the latest numbers:

Here’s What You Need To Know About Opu’s ICO

Our ICO is looming. We couldn’t be more excited.

While seasoned crypto fans will get how this all works, what if this is the first time you’ve dabbled in an ICO?

We realize there’s fair amount of perceived complexity surrounding blockchain technology, coin offerings, and decentralization. So here we’ve done our best to explain how they all work together, how we’re creating our digital skincare ecosystem, and how everyone can get involved.

Know Your ICO

Let’s start with the basics. (If you know your onions, you may want to skip this part). There are a thousand Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) out there. Some call them Token Generation Events (TGEs). Others may refer to them as Token Sales. Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum’s founder) even mooted a variation called an Interactive Coin Offering at one point. Truth be told, they’re all pretty much the same thing — as far as terminologies go. But the reality is each one is very different from the next. But what exactly are they?

  • For entrepreneurs, they’re an opportunity to raise the money needed to complete the technology they’re building.
  • For ICO participants, they offer something far more intriguing: the chance to purchase a newly created cryptocurrency.

Instead of buying shares (as you would in an IPO), with an ICO, participants contribute funds into a decentralized ecosystem, and are awarded ‘tokens’ when the fundraising period is over. Those tokens are pegged to a particular cryptocurrency (Ethereum in Opu’s case, as we’re making use of smart contract functionality, which ensure the secure exchange of data).

Buyers bank on future demand for the tokens; which is driven by the technology’s ability to attract a critical mass of users.

So, despite all the mania around ‘get rich quick’ schemes (which are almost always too good to be true), the fact remains that if the technology is a) solid and b) solves a real-world pain point for a particular sector, the greater the chances of success will be for the token. And an ICO is a chance to get in on the ground floor.

Down To Business: Opu’s ICO

As you probably know, our background is health and wellness: skincare specifically. Because we’ve seen where the industry falls short; we’ve decided to build a platform that helps to alleviate some of the key pain points (try out our demo platform to see for yourself).

The reason we’re doing this using Ethereum blockchain technology is because one of the biggest issues the skincare sector faces is reliable information. In order to create skincare solutions that have tried and true results, dermatologists need accurate data from a range of different patients. However, a lot of people, across the world, don’t have access to professional dermatological advice; they rely on the advice of friends, family, or anyone else with an alleged ‘miracle cure’

Opu’s ecosystem

In a nutshell, the ecosystem we’re creating will bring together everyone who plays a role in the skincare industry. We’re building a suite of services to facilitate the required interactions, alongside a mechanism that ensures the secure exchange of data (you can read more about the specifics in our whitepaper — or even our previous blog post).

The platforms we’re building

To take part in the pre-sale, or register for the ICO, sign up on our website(click the “Join Pool 1” button at the top of the home page). You’ll also get regular updates via our Telegram channel, where our admins are happy to offer advice and answer questions.

Opu Update: Second Preview Release Now Live!

New features, new team members, and an updated ICO schedule.

The team here at Opu Labs is proud to announce the second Preview Release of our Opu.ai platform. We’ve made some great strides since the first release last November. We’ve spent a substantial amount of time thinking through our use cases, reviewed our ecosystem’s financial models, redrafted our white paper following industry expert feedback, and developed a smart token which will take us through the first phase of Opu’s evolution.

As a result, we’ve now added a number of new functions to our service:

  • multiple facial analyses
  • extended skin tone analysis
  • user skin profile creation
  • the ability for users to earn OPU Coins in their own personal wallet

In addition, our Opu Rewards program is now live, so users can start receive OPU Coins by completing profiles, introducing friends, and by participating in our social media channels.

Details about the Opu Rewards program and our upcoming Airdrop can be found here.
