Singapore-based Indorse is a blockchain-based social network for professionals. Blockchain accelerator Coinsilium Group subscribed for an additional 7 percent of the fully diluted share capital of Indorse for US$257,000. Previously, Coinsilium invested US$73,000 in the startup.

Competitors: Linkedin, Steemit.com, Akasha

How it compares to competitors: Unlike other social networks, ad placements on Indorse can be bought by agencies at fixed rates, with large portions of the ad revenue being distributed directly to the users as a reward for sharing knowledge and expertise. In this way, users can monetize their activity.

Traction:  Indorse raised the equivalent of US$5.5 million in the first three days of its token pre-sale. Its token sale – or initial coin offering – will run until September 7, 2017.
