Each month 1 billion sports fans generate 8.5 billion visits to a variety of sports media sources, creating a huge income for them. For far too long, these fans have watched from the sidelines; spending their hard-earned cash to support their home clubs, teams, and athletes. The current sports media industry has no interest in rewarding these fans and fails to provide innovative coverage for the modern world.
We set out to unite the passionate fans of sports around the world into a bold digital media platform where active participants are rewarded for their engagement. To achieve this, we designed the following key services:
The blogging platform where each contribution is rewarded. It provides cryptocurrency rewards for both content creators and curators. Community members get paid for publishing posts, voting, commenting and uploading photos. For sports writers we have developed custom solutions: sports analytical tools, interactive visualizations and a built-in photo database.
The statistical center. Beside providing the latest sports updates, the data from stats-center can be efficiently utilized to embed interactive infographics into publications with Scorum’s custom designed sports editorial tools. Live event streaming, tickets, and other sporting goods will also be available as a part of partnership programs.
The commission-free betting exchange and Daily Fantasy Sports leagues. Venturesome sports fans no longer have to rely on “trusted third parties” in order to make a bet. Registration and betting at the Scorum exchange is transparent, without any commission or hidden fees. The prototype of Scorum's Fantasy Sports platform will be launched pre-crowdsale. After the publication of the blockchain, DFS players will be able to buy-in and win pay-outs in Scorum Coins tokens. It’s important to note that these two parts of the platform will not be sources of revenue for Scorum but rather features we believe the fans deserve, and will naturally improve the value of SCR.
ECONOMIC MODEL FUNDAMENTALS
Our economic model is based on three fundamental principles:
Scorum plans to derive income from three reliable sources: internal advertising system, partner programs and a photo database. We intend to use this income to keep improving the platform, reward active Scorum users and donate a portion of this income to charity.
Tokens Crowdsale will go in the following stages:
The development is based on Graphene framework with DPoS (Delegated Proof-of-Stake) consensus. This solution enables users to have zero-commission transactions and turns Scorum into a highly favorable ecosystem.
- Reward system for Scorum authors and active platform members - Built-in Instruments for Sport Authors (interactive visualization tools, photo database, advanced sports analytics) - Statistics Center for Various Sports - Commission-free Betting Exchange
The Graphene framework is used to develop the blockchain protocol for Scorum. This solution has already proved itself both reliable and highly capable in such successful blockchain projects as Bitshares, Steemit, and Golos. The Scorum blockchain uses the DPoS (Delegated Proof-of-Stake) consensus algorithm. The key advantage of this algorithm is its high-traffic network capacity of up to 10 000 transactions per second. Such performance is made possible thanks to a combination of several factors:
To make the Scorum blockchain deployment process more convenient, we provide each new protocol version as a Docker image which allows us to avoid the peculiarities of various operating systems and environments. This in turn allows our users to easily utilize the client, which is especially important for delegates who need to keep the nodes active within the network in order to take part in block production rounds. These Docker images of public nodes are also deeply integrated into the system of continuous Web infrastructure expansion of the Scorum platform.
A console application is sufficient for interacting with the blockchain Scorum node. However, manual formatting and sending of the transaction in accordance with the protocol is far from user-friendly. That’s why developing a convenient and secure user interface is one of our key development objectives. To allow for seamless and quick access to Scorum web interface, we will create a cluster of various containers within the Windows Azure cloud.
● We use Azure Container Service to expand, support and orchestrate the Docker-container cluster with Scorum blockchain nodes. This highly reliable solution allows us to ensure availability even during peak load times as well as flexibly scale the cluster depending on incoming request volume.
● Azure Search allows Scorum users to effectively search through the content found on Scorum blockchain. To do this, we keep an eye on all the notes located in the blockchain and create indexes for them in Azure Search. Such indexing allows us to provide users with the most relevant search results considering such criteria as user language and variability of the searched phrase.
● We use Azure Content Delivery Network to allow users to load pages immediately, regardless of where they are in the world.

Existing on the market for some time almost the same service called Golos not specializing in any one direction of content works with some reservations. For example, literally in mid-November 2017, the service was blocked by Roskomnadzor in connection with the violation of Russian law. In this case the service received a warning from the supervisory authority but ignored it. During the week users were forced to use the service "mirrors" until the violations were eliminated and the lock was removed from the resource. How successful these services are, while it is difficult to say since there is still no real statistics, there are only a few work reviews. In the description of the Scorum project, we drew attention to the aforementioned in-house service "betting exchange", which, in fact, is a sports tote. At the same time, the authors of the project modestly report that the rate exchange is not a source of income for the project, but is simply made as a marketing tool that stimulates the activity of users of the service. True, apparently due to natural modesty, the authors of the project somehow omitted the moment that it is possible to use all the services provided by their service exclusively by paying internal tokens. For potential investors, the main question is whether it is worth investing in the next incarnation of Zhivogo magazine, which may also be subjected to reprisals by the controlling organisations, which may not so understand the main thrust of the "exchange of rates as a marketing tool ". Do the conclusions yourself - investment has always been a risky business
Once the Scorum platform launches, it will be the biggest sports-based blockchain platform in existence. With a beta already available for trial and a strong pre-ICO, the Scorum is set to revolutionize the way sports fans interact with sports media in future.
