A GREEN, SMART AND CONNECTED CITY PLATFORM
Parksen combats worldwide traffic congestion and pollution through a Green, Smart and Connected City Platform, which utilizes the IOTA and Ethereum blockchain, smart contracts, IoT devices and a real-time parking app.
THE UNIVERSAL SOLUTION FOR SMART CITIES
The Parksen services are divided between our real-time Parksen parking app – of which a modest MVP already exists – and the Green, Smart & Connected City Platform.
Utilizing the Ethereum blockchain, smart contracts, a universal ledger and a variety of IoT devices, we will create a truly sustainable and intelligent city development platform. With the collected data, we will be able to battle back against the ever-rising levels of traffic congestion and pollution that are damaging life in large urban metropolises and small cities alike.
The Parksen parking app will use that same data to guide drivers to available and affordable spots, while municipalities, parking garages, companies and other users of the City Platform can use the data to improve their own infrastructures.
OUR MULTI-FUNCTIONAL UTILITY TOKEN
The PARQ token is an Ethereum-based ERC20 utility token which can be spent and earned within the Parksen parking app and the Green, Smart & Connected City Platform
Pay for parking
Using the Parksen parking app, drivers can locate, reserve and pay for their parking before ever leaving home. The app then guides them there following the fastest possible route.
Pay for equipment
Using the Green, Smart & Connected City Platform, municipalities, parking garages and companies can purchase and integrate new system and hardware upgrades from our partners.
Earn by collecting data
All types of users can earn PARQ tokens by collecting and submitting data on local congestion and pollution levels, parking space availability and a wide variety of surveys.
Earn by renting out parking spots
Using the Green, Smart & Connected City Platform, all users can earn PARQ tokens by registering and renting out individual and corporate parking spots that belong to them.

In order to guarantee a strong, healthy growth of our community and the participating municipalities, we have decided to issue a total of 250M PARQ tokens for the ICO. After careful consideration, we believe that this will allow us to come through on the long-term goals of both our platform and parking app.
ARQ tokens can be bought with fiat currency via bank transfer, Paypal, creditcards and both ETH and BTC. Despite having both a discount for the pre- and public token sale, the base price of PARQ will be: 1 PARQ = 0.10 USD
