DADI

DADI, which stands for Decentralized Architecture for a Democratic Internet, is an enterprise which aims to decentralise cloud computing and web services.

Company GOAL:

Democratize cloud computing via blockchain

Clarity’s Challenge:

Centralize trust in decentralized networks

Clarity specialises in working with disruptive tech companies, yet few are quite as ambitious as DADI. The company wanted to democratise cloud computing taking on the likes of Amazon, Microsoft, IBM and Google in the process. Its magic bullet was its blockchain powered DADI app which allows any device owner to rent their computing power to the DADI network and receive payment from enterprise users.

Clarity faced two interesting challenges. Firstly, the company had launched a successful Initial Coin Offering (ICO) which had raised $28 million. Yet there were misconceptions about the ICO and the company in general, especially in the enterprise tech world. In tandem,we had a short runway to help reposition DADI but also start attracting contributors to the DADI network.
To overcome these challenges we employed a quartet of approaches.

  • We harnessed traditional media relations tactics of newsjacking and thought leadership to establish credibility.
  • We also created a ‘launch moment’ around DADI’s mainnet go-live, with a news sell-in generating trade, national and international media attention.
  • To excite the crypto community we employed a combination of in-depth media briefings, a high- impact paid media partnership and ‘founding node’ giveaway – announced exclusively with Forbes
  • Finally, we brought the story full circle by launching the non-profit DADI foundation and its first charitable grant.
    The results spoke for themselves. The main objective was to create positive sentiment and we achieved this with 98% positive coverage over the three months.

The company is perfectly placed now for the next stage of its journey.

This blockchain-based company got $30 million to build a ‘new internet’

Cloud computing has quickly become one of the biggest innovations introduced by the internet. Cloud storage has allowed many businesses to streamline their operations, while it lets families share photos and videos with the people they care about. And when proper security measures are used, it can also reduce the risk of data theft.

Five Start-ups Hoping To Rebuild The Internet

The cloud computing sector was worth $260bn in 2017 according to Gartner and is still growing - but so are concerns over storage, speed and security, let alone the market dominance of the major tech groups. Enter DADI, the start-up building a ‘decentralised architecture for a democratic internet’.

British start-up launches 'new internet'

A UK-based blockchain start-up has revealed what it is calling a new version of the Internet. DADI (Decentralized Architecture for a Democratic Internet) will be faster, cheaper and more secure, but most importantly – the control over the network won't be in the hands of large corporations, but rather in those who use it.

FitTrack

Company Goal: FitTrack approached Clarity to steadily build up its brand narrative, while still pushing product.

Clarity’s Challenge: To make FitTrack stand out in the fitness & health industry with meaningful coverage.

Clarity surveyed moms and moms-to-be finding that 1 in 5 are rarely asked how they are doing, so we  partnered with Postpartum Support Int’l to donate $1 for every person who pledged to ask mom how she is. The campaign spoke directly to our target audience by supporting an issue many of them experienced first hand. An NBC journalist on maternity leave even shared it on her personal Instagram account. 

From inclusion in Mother’s and Father’s Day Gift Guides to Best Bathroom Scale round ups, we delivered a consistent cadence of positive press reviews in publications we know our audience reads to highlight how the products could work for them.

Entrupy

Company Goal: Use AI to protect brands, spot knock-offs

Clarity’s Challenge: Establish a brand with “no substitutes”

AI-based product authentication technology provider Entrupy was a veritable unknown when they enlisted Clarity to officially launch the company as they closed their series A funding round. The founding team of technologists and mathematicians looked to us to build their profile from the ground up and achieve objectives including:

  • Educate the market on the problem (counterfeiting) and establish Entrupy as the only scalable, objective solution
  • Raise awareness of the company among global media, marketplaces and secondary resellers
  • Establish a reputation for innovation in machine learning and its application for societal issues
  • Position for expansion into new markets and product lines
  • Drive business growth worldwide

Clarity worked closely with the company to develop messages that conveyed the complex technical solution and its value proposition in a manner that can be understood by retail and mainstream audiences as well as those in technology circles. We crafted positioning that was equally relevant to a single pawn shop owner and a multinational marketplace and executed on a communications plan that incorporated media and industry relations, content development, event participation and industry recognition/awards.

Pimax

Company Goal: Our global team was challenged to raise money for a new VR headset by Pimax, a completely unknown brand. The founder hoped to raise $175,000 so they could go into production, and get reviews comparing the device to VR hit Oculus Rift (which was eventually bought by Facebook)

Clarity’s Challenge: Our main task was to get media familiar with Pimax, so we first researched relevant press that would understand the hard core tech behind the VR headset. Integrated closely with media relations, we worked with Pimax across the Kickstarter page, website messaging towards a Western audience and social tone of voice.

Integrated closely with media relations, we worked with Pimax across the Kickstarter page, website messaging towards a Western audience and social tone of voice.

Once we started to build trust with press, we requested access to back-end analytics to the Kickstarter page, allowing us to re-target sites with higher conversions, sharing stats with editors to highlight the interest of their readers, and making sure they had all the latest updates.

Using 4 prototypes, Pimax travelled for 2 months, across 3 continents, 11 cities, and 12 events testing sessions, meeting over 2,000 VR enthusiasts in-person to demo the 8K technology and get their feedback, with our global team orchestrating key meets and messaging, as well as hosting demos in our own offices

We expanded efforts outside traditional tech media to focus on the die-hard fans, VR publications and gaming communities, as opposed to relying on typical tech media to drive interest.
