The STRIM network allows you to see the world through the lens of any IoT device. It is a decentralized peer-to-peer video streaming and sensor data gathering tool, enabling virtually everyone to be a contributor to the network and get money for it. The system allows people to provide or request a live video feed from/to any location where other STRIM network users are located. Additionally, users can gather sensor data from the location they're in, supply it to the STRIM network and receive STR tokens in exchange.
STRIM will be available soon for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.

The crowdfunding process for the STRIM network will use the Smart Contract system available on the Ethereum blockchain.
Everyone* interested in the project can submit their Ether (ETH) donation to the wallet address provided on the official STRIM ICO website and will receive their share of STR tokens.
The Initial Coin Offerring crowdfunding process will start on October 5th, 2017 at 10:00 PM UK time.
*Some restrictions apply - see STR ICO Contribution Terms for details.
STRIM is a decentralised network built on the Ethereum blockchain technology that gathers various data from users around the world, shares the data and ultimately builds upon the data, turning it into useful information.
The network will incetivize users to share data by rewarding them with STR tokens. These tokens can in turn be used to retrieve data that other users have shared.
During the first development phase, STRIM will facilitate location based peer-to-peer video streaming, allowing users to broadcast using their webcams, phones, or other cameras connected to the Internet. This will allow users to view realtime video from various locations around the world.
The second development phase will expand upon the STRIM platform and allow users to share data using specialized sensors - such as air quality, temperature, humidity, all-in-one weather stations, radioactivity sensors, microphones, parking spot sensors. This data will then be used to create dynamic maps, for example for realtime weather information, city noise pollution, or even finding an available parking spot.
The STRIM team was founded by Mihai Ciocan, Radu Alexandru Gină, Andrei Dianu and Radu Nicolae. Their experience in software, cloud computing and networking helps them coordinate the STRIM development and administration team that will consist of around 20 people.
STRIM will run natively on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux.
A browser based version will facilitate quicker user adoption.
STR tokens are the currency used on the STRIM platform. A small amount of tokens is rewarded to users whenever they share data with the network; this amount increases as the said data is accessed by other users. In turn, tokens are used whenever data is retrieved from the network - for example by watching a live video stream.
The STR token value is decided by the market organically, based on offer and demand.
In order to drive the token price, the STRIM team is targeting people outside of the crypto community to join the platform. The main concern during development is to keep the platform as easy and intuitive to use as possible. No technical skills should be necessary to participate.
Partnerships with various events around the world, such as music festivals or sporting events, are part of the STRIM video growth plan. Several such quality content streams will help grow the community and thus drive STR token value.
STRIM will reach out to online TV and radio stations in order to pitch this new monetization model. This would allow small and medium broadcasters to focus on their content, instead of advertising sales.
During the second development phase, the platform will be pitched to specialized institutions that will use the data for scientific and research purposes, for example by weather organizations. Robots and sensor development is also in the STRIM growth scope - for example by using customised sensors applied to robots to gather data from places inaccessible to humans.
