Hi, I’m Nick Rathman, owner of IronClad Web Technologies, Co-founder of Tokenly and Chief Architect here at Let’s Talk Bitcoin. IronClad Tech is the company behind the first Content Management System which natively incorporates Bitcoin and Counterparty tokens (Tokenly CMS, used here by Let’s Talk Bitcoin), and we have helped pioneer concepts such as “Token Controlled Access”, mass token distribution, token vending machines and more. In fact, our mass token distribution prototype is directly responsible for about 45% of all network transactions that have happened within Counterparty to date (143,000+ distribution transactions recorded), mostly thanks to heavy usage by the LTBCOIN and FLDC (FoldingCoin) projects.
IronClad Web Technologies is a professional web application development company, providing full service website development (design, programming, hosting, managing), as well as building and operating its own in-house web projects. IronClad Tech specializes in cryptocurrency related projects both for in-house as well as client work, but non-crypto work is more than welcome. Although still a small operation, we plan on continuing to expand and becoming a key player in this space, intending to provide the bitcoin ecosystem with the web development services it needs.
Ok, so what is this post about then?
Today, I am announcing the launch of a new Counterparty token - IRONCLADWEB.
IRONCLADWEB is a multi-purpose gift certificate token, worth at least $10 in value for services rendered by IronClad Web Technologies.
This is not intended as a “crowd sale” or IPO, but rather is meant to be a long term, token based “store credit” program, with some added perks. Tokens are issued as needed, and will be sold continuously with no deadline. They do not represent any form of equity or profit sharing from the company - only the minimum $10 value in applicable products or services.
Owning an IRONCLADWEB token has the following uses & benefits:
- Can be used as payment (full or partial) towards professional web development or consulting services, based on the $10 value and hourly rate for each type of work (e.g $80 / hour for web dev work = 8 IRONCLADWEB per hour).
- Can be used as payment (full or partial) towards most anything on any web service or application operated by the company, now or in the future. In addition, IRONCLADWEB tokens will be the preferred (discounted rate) option for all web apps. Examples include banner advertising, registration fees, premium accounts etc.
- Access to the Token Controlled Access forums “IronClad Talk” located on Let’s Talk Bitcoin. There will also be a TCA blog eventually.
- Enable special features on existing or future web apps operated by the company (e.g “VIP status”).
- Beta access and early previews for upcoming projects.
Each token is sold for $10 worth of BTC. A “bulk discount bot” is available as well, which sells tokens for $5 a piece if you buy at least 200 of them ($1000).
Why would I buy IRONCLADWEB tokens, what’s the point?
You might want to buy some tokens if…
- You want to pre-pay for future work or services from IronClad
- You want to get the best pricing for some of our web apps or services, now or in the future.
- You want beta access to any new web app we are building
- You want to access special features within applications owned and operated by IronClad
- You are interested in reading our (upcoming) TCA blog or getting a deeper insight into the company by participating in the forums.
If none of the above benefits make sense for you (or if none of it makes sense at all), we can always be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can message me directly on these forums.
For the time being, redemptions of IRONCLADWEB tokens will all be done manually, usually via email exchange. In the case of any in-house web apps we might operate, there will be automated processes, but right now our only active web app is Earn Free Bitcoins, which only offers advertising (also a manual process).
Tend redemption forms are available here that allow clients to submit a general work request (new website, changes to an existing website, project consulting etc.), or request other services. Submitting a request costs a flat fee of 1 IRONCLADWEB or $15 worth of BTC. Paying the submission fee gives you high response priority (I will respond to you faster), and any fees paid are subtracted directly from your final invoice. In the case of spam or inappropriate requests, the fee is simply kept (for obvious reasons).

Legality / Disclaimer
IRONCLADWEB tokens do not in any way represent any form of equity, company voting rights or profit sharing scheme from IronClad Web Technologies or any other company. These tokens are essentially the digital equivalent of store credit. They are completely non-refundable, and can not be redeemed for cash, bitcoin, or any other value token.
The company reserves the right to refuse any work or general service from anyone for any reason at any time. Although we guarantee that we will provide at least $10 of value for each IRONCLADWEB token spent, owning a token is not a guarantee that we will do business with you. Please also understand that scheduling may at times be booked for several weeks or more during these early days.
Please note that blockchain technology and "token" projects such as this are highly experimental - so buy at your own risk, as the company takes no responsibility for lost funds (e.g if you lose access to your wallet).
