Apillon’s Unified Pricing
Apillon’s Unified Pricing
What is Apillon’s unified pricing and why does it matter? Web3 services should be available at stable pricing, allowing users to devote more time and energy to developing new products, instead of dealing with volatile tokens.
Predictability boosting adoption
The Web3 space delivers outstanding possibilities for building advanced decentralized products. However, the projects providing Web3 services have mostly focused on perfecting the technology offering and less on how end-users interact with it and adopt it.
One of the main challenges users need to overcome in Web3 services adoption is token/asset acquisition and management. This could seem like a minor issue when using a single service but could grow into an overwhelming toil when utilizing multiple at once.
To deliver as smooth a user experience as possible, the Apillon platform performs automatic payments of underlying services in their native tokens and enables users to pay for all in a single transaction.
Each successful startup goes through typical development phases. First, after the initial idea, they build a prototype and MVP to create traction. Once they perfect their offering in the product-market fit phase, they work towards boosting growth in the scaling phase.
In supporting Web3 builders through their growth process, Apillon delivers a full-stack solution that allows both startups and established companies to develop and scale their products using Web3 building services.
Too often, as they work on perfecting the product-market fit, initial-stage businesses are not focused much on the costs that come with using different services. However, in the following phase, scaling the business model becomes a much more pragmatic issue, as it requires a lot of mid- to long-term planning and continuous cost optimization.
And this can only be achieved by utilizing services with reliable, predictable pricing models.
Token utility, volatility, and predictable pricing paradox
In the Web3 world, the pricing of most protocols, parachains, and services is typically based around a volatile token. This directly correlated with project tokenomics, they aim to boost token value with different token utilities, more successfully, some less. Moreover, token valuation is heavily subject to market sentiment and community backing.
Charging for Web3 services in volatile tokens leads to unpredictable pricing models, which prevents their users from scaling successfully and reining their spending within rational range.
The unpredictability of service pricing is a huge issue in the current stage of the Web3 space, regardless of (or because of) ever-changing market sentiment. With the implementation of stable service pricing, Apillon provides the platform users with tools to build stellar Web3 products while allowing them to forecast their financial statements and cash flows for stable growth.
Multiple services at a single price tag
Paying for services with volatile assets is both risky and cumbersome. It is mainly because, in Web3, highly volatile assets represent more an investment vehicle than a value transfer instrument.
The Apillon platform is designed to accept payments in either fiat money, stablecoins, or even volatile assets. As it cannot impact the utility of supported parachains’ native tokens,. The platform sustains a pricing model that resists their volatility and provides users with stable monthly pricing. This way, they can adequately plan the resources spent on Web3 projects.
However, while Apillon’s pricing model can buffer normal average asset volatility of supported services, it is not designed to withstand cases of dramatic or black swan events on the market.
Apillon’s approach to stable pricing
The Apillon platform and its pricing is built using the following approaches:
- A staged business model from freemium to paid plans
- Underlying credit points for monitoring and calibration of pricing models
- Asset custody for underlying service payments
- Stablecoins as a stable store of value between user payment and service cost
- Connection to a DEX for automatic asset swap
- Real-time price and custody monitoring
- 1:1 deals with service providers on price insurance
The Apillon platform MVP supports a freemium model to bring the above points into equilibrium. With stably priced services and unified payment. It further strengthens the Apillon’s business model to stand the test of the crypto market.
Apillon a Web3 development platform for developers and businesses building on Web3. By gathering unified API endpoints, it delivers the functionalities of Polkadot parachains adapted to the standard development process and user-preferred technology stack.
