Early adopters

The Bucket.network team is excited to have strong initial backing from athletes and sports clubs around the globe, and the number of supporters is growing quickly.

Players

Sports recruitment is broken

Due to scattered data stemming from the lack of a unified global database, and growing information asymmetry, some market participants are able to obtain and secure exclusive information on others, thereby creating significant market inefficiencies:

  • Accessibility to information is limited for all the participants in the market (players, teams, agents, industry experts).
  • Extra costs arise in the form of agent fees, time spent scouting for talent, and unsuccessful talent acquisition (bad hiring decisions due to incomplete information).
  • Transparency is not properly enforced (adverse selection in recruitment, flawed contract enforcement)

Key takeaway from Bucket.network co-founders.

Main benefits of Bucket.network decentralized ecosystem

Enabling unprecedented access to global sports talent

The core of Bucket.network is the player marketplace networking platform, meant for all stakeholders of the TOP 5 team sports: Players, Teams, Agents, Industry Experts (analysts, scouts, coaches, physicians), 3rd Party Service Providers (lawyers, advertisers, wealth managers) and Fans.

Ensuring full transparency with the help of smart contracts

Bucket.network users will be able to execute agreements via smart contracts and eliminate the need for any kind of an intermediary or exchange to validate contract terms and conditions. Moreover, the use of a complementary Smart-Depository system allows parties to mitigate contract enforcement risks and perfectly align incentives between the parties.

Lowering talent acquisition costs for sports teams at all levels

With Bucket.network extra costs that arise in a form of intermediaries fees, time spent scouting for talent and unsuccessful talent acquisition (bad hiring decisions due to incomplete information) will be drastically decreased or in some cases completely eliminated for sports teams around the globe.

Improving competitiveness of overall sports ecosystem

Bucket.network will include ratings and review system, which will allow Bucket.network members post public feedback and thus assure the rep- utation of Players, Teams, Agents, Industry Experts and 3rd Party Service Providers.

Accommodating record growth through API infrastructure

Bucket.network will be open to third-party developers who want to contribute more value-added solutions for the sports ecosystem. For example, AI and machine learning solutions to provide unprecedented smart scouting.

Engaging fans with unique crypto-collectibles

Within Bucket.network, fans will be able to purchase unique, non-fungible and cryptographically signed player cards. Much like physical collectible player cards, these crypto-cards will be released in limited supply, will not be copied, and will have similar utility as traditional collectibles.

Bucket Token

Transactions on Bucket.network will be carried out exclusively via BCK utility tokens, meaning tokens sold during the TGE will be treated as an advanced payment for access to the Bucket.network platform via subscription or API access. This will divide the total token pool into:

  • Tokens in circulation

    Tokens on the market (purchased during TGE or from token market participants after the TGE, and Bucket.network team and advisor tokens)

  • Locked tokens

    Smart Deposits will be introduced as a voluntary contract enforcement tool between platform participants entering into smart contracts

  • Burnt tokens

    Tokens that were used to pay for platform services (subscriptions and API access) will be burned and granted as fulfilled obligations of advanced payments

  • Soft cap: 2200 ETH
  • Hard cap: 23500 ETH
*may change due to exchange rate changes

The structure of transactions on the platform will ensure that a growing number of users will indispensably reduce the supply of available BCK tokens, thus stimulating the demand for remaining tokens.
