ICO Review: Stoby Project
Stoby is the first job platform directly targeting the student community, completely rethinking and simplifying the way students find jobs.. Stoby sells free time to busy people and gives students the opportunity to benefit from additional income. We are the first job platform directly targeting the student community, completely rethinking and simplifying the way students find jobs. With the ICO, we are bringing Blockchain technology on our P2P platform to ensure transparency, trust, and traceability. Paid in tokens (STB), students will earn more and be able to spend their earnings on campus and with partners. Ultimately, we are building a network of millions of students gathered around a strong community and a unique currency, the STB.
While on the other hand individuals of the so-called senior executives category, representing people well established in their professional life, have little free time and try to free themselves from many routine tasks such as housekeeping, animal care, school support, parcel retrieval, and so on in order to spend more time with their family and for leisure.
From that observation combined with the emergence of the collaborative economy and the digital world, new kinds of employment on the frontier of wage labour are coming up.
Indeed, the collaborative economy has really been booming in Europe in the last few years. The number of transactions in the five main sectors of the European collaborative economy namely finance, accommodation, transport, human and social services to individuals and companies could be multiplied by 20 in 10 years and reach 570 billion euros by 2025 compared with hardly 28 billion euros today. As 85% of this value is captured by individuals, the collaborative platforms turnover should reach 83 billion euros by 2025 compared with 4 billion today, according to the PWC’s audit and consulting firm latest estimates.
France, together with the United Kingdom, appears to be the leader on the market of the European collaborative economy, thanks to its favourable regulations environment.
Stoby has been expanding with this will : to rely on the collaborative economy connecting students who wish to find small jobs easily with individuals who wish to delegate some small tasks from time to time. In view of these different elements, Stoby has positioned itself on a specific segment of this market, in order to get a clear and visible identity to face competition.
Stoby’s mission is to provide all its support for an optimal deployment of the token in the student environment.
Our role will be to facilitate its access and exchange, both on and outside the platform.
In the coming years, we will strive to communicate and make partnerships with different student organizations for them to accept and re-use our token.
Why Starting The Business In France ?
Stoby has decided to start its activity in France where the market is very favourable to the development of a collaborative platform.
France is part of the three leading countries where collaborative consumption is most developed, including the United States and Spain.
This country hosts a number of leaders in many sectors of activity. For example, in the transport sector, BlaBlaCar is one of the leading carpooling platforms in Europe. In the food sector, « La Ruche qui dit Oui » is a French reference platform. The French market is then ready to host and allow a platform like Stoby to develop.
Moreover, most members of the team are French people who know very well the French local jobbing market. Then France was a natural choice
Stoby has the ambition to expand throughout Europe, as mentioned on page 41. This European expansion will happen naturally by capitalizing on the knowledge of the French market.
The Jobbing Market
Supplement of income, student job, summer job, mutual assistance or real lifestyle choice, jobbing is on a roll. This phenomenon would have emerged in France in spring 2013 with the launch of half a dozen sites in a few weeks.
Favoured by the collaborative economy development, platforms of services between individuals have been flourishing on the net since 2013 and Jobijoba decrypts the fad of French people for jobbing with a first study on this topic. Jobijoba thus analysed a million online offers on its site in April 2017. Advertisements for odd jobs paid on a job or mission basis amounted to nearly 5% of all online job offers, that is to say, 46 855 ads !
Platforms of services to individuals seem poised to achieve the fastest growth, with an increasing turnover of about 30% per year until 2025. The development of this sector is stimulated by a new generation of consumers, who are increasingly using on-demand services to meet the occasional needs of everyday life, such as FoodChéri (delivery of Chef’s meals at home) or AlloVoisins (ex ILokYou -rental of equipment and services between individuals).
