April / May 2019 Update

Endor Protocol | 07.27| 36

April/May 2019 Update

Hello Endorians,

We’ve been working expediently over the past couple of months on new product developments and customer implementations, both reaching new heights. In the last post we updated on our new financial trading offering to third parties seeking to provide advanced AI-powered capabilities to their customers, with our first such implementation reaching completion on its initial limited Beta phase. In this post, we would like to share additional updates and progress from April and May.

Endor Roadmap

Endor Protocol v.1 Released

In April, we released the Endor Protocol v.1 for public availability. In the first phase, the Protocol supports publicly available Ethereum Blockchain and ERC20 token data, allowing end users to ask predictive questions on ETH wallets and ERC20 based projects.

To date, the Endor Protocol has generated over 2500 predictions. We are rolling out the platform with limited data sets and catalysts, as defined in our roadmap. It is crucial for us to test, iterate, and capture all aspects of the platform that require attention in order to build a great product. The usage to date is a great achievement from our perspective, to validate the thesis of a robust self-serve predictions ecosystem which is being built upon the Endor Protocol.

In parallel, we are also conducting price discovery initiatives that will support multiple pricing strategies based on type of data requested to be analyzed and its derived value. Finally, we are continuously discovering new data streams containing transactions of behavioral activities (social, exchanges, proprietary business data, etc.) to add to the platform in the future.

Self-Serve for Enterprise Customers:

With the release of Endor Protocol v.1, we also transitioned all our Enterprise customers to the enhanced Enterprise self service interface. Prior to the ‘self-service’ capability, our professional services team worked closely with enterprise clients to power the platform optimally and generate predictions. Now, following extensive customer dialogue and product development, every employee in an organization will be able to “self-serve” predictions, or generate predictions individually through an easy-to-use interface. Large Enterprise and SMB customers now use the same platform to easily and quickly generate predictions.

On this note, we have on-boarded our newest banking client, that has implemented Endor’s AI predictions platform to enable their internal teams to cut down on the time and cost of customer upsell and enhanced engagement initiatives, by asking predictive questions such as :

  1. Which clients in the current portfolio will make purchases above XXX in the next month?
  2. Out of all qualified active customers in the past month , who will add another service?
  3. Which customer will order an additional credit card in the next 30 days?

Within few weeks, business users within the bank were able to create and submit dozens of predictive questions and reported improved results which are more than 5X BETTER than previous marketing strategies. Following the stellar results, they have expanded the availability of the Endor Platform across additional operating geographies.

Scaling the Business

The self service capability was developed to quickly enable scale within an enterprise and across regions. With its release, we are building commercial channels to distribute and increase adoption, fast. We’ve partnered with one of the largest credit card companies worldwide, as well as top tier SI’s, to offer the Endor AI platform to their customers through distribution partnerships. We’re continuing to expand our channel partnerships globally and will share more details as soon as they’ll become publicly available.
