We created the LCD cryptocurrency as a rapid medium of exchange purpose-built for our AR smartglasses. LCD has several planned uses, including automated rewards to contributors of content and computational power to the platform, for handsfree peer-to-peer transactions in our glasses, to buy hardware from Lucyd, and as the foundation of a decentralized AR app store.
We’ve assembled a highly-qualified team to bring alive our dream of enhancing the visual experience. Our ranks include seven Ph.D. scientists and executives with decades of experience

Please note that the features discussed below are anticipated over time. Actual LUCYD Smartglass features may differ.
Lucyd was founded in 2017 in Singapore. We selected Singapore because it is a global financial center, a popular hub for blockchain projects, and because Lucyd aims to be an international retailer of advanced eyewear. In 2017 The World Economic forum rated Singapore among the top three countries in the world in terms of global competitiveness. Our SG base has made it easier to connect with international communities, particularly in East & Southeast Asia, where AR enjoys great popularity.
Our goal is to upgrade your eyewear. We’re building an online optics store where you can find the best high tech glasses, including lines developed by Lucyd and from our partners. The Lucyd eShop is slated to launch at July 31st, and will start by offering technologically advanced glasses, including a bone conduction audio smartglass called Lucyd LOUD ®. We want to offer comfortable, functioning glasses, but with new, useful features to enhance the visual experience. In addition to prescription smartglasses, we plan to offer fashion-forward glasses with unique design features, such as a line of nearly indestructible frames. We are building a customer-focused shopping experience, that includes the option to consult with an eye doctor for free, and be the first place in the world to purchase Rx eyewear with bitcoin and ether.
When available, Lucyd Lens will seek to enrich the visual experience by superimposing digital information over what you are seeing. We seek to have the Lens support your daily life with useful information, and make it easier to access the internet and your favorite apps.
We are expecting prototype models to be available in Q1 2019.
Yes, the Lens will be Rx compatible.
LCD is an ERC20 utility token. Its intended purpose is to enhance the user experience on the Lucyd platform, and to be able to purchase goods and services from Lucyd, its partners and developer community. Essentially, the token is a credit in the Lucyd ecosystem. LCD is not an investment product, and it is not representative of equity in Lucyd. LCD was created to reward our crowdfund participants with credit towards future purchases of Lucyd smartglasses and AR content. We are trying to build a platform where LCD is the go-to currency for any transaction performed in AR.
The Ethereum contract address is: 0x9a4059c1cf329a017e0ee1337c503137Fd9463b2; 18 decimals; Symbol: LCD; To send token: Gas limit 58000; Gwei price should be 16-21.
Yes, we have prohibited the sale of tokens to U.S., Singaporean and Chinese citizens or residents. After the token generation event tokens should not be purchased by citizens or residents of the U.S., Singapore or China. In addition tokens should not be purchased by citizens of any jurisdiction where such purchases may be prohibited. Please check with your legal adviser as appropriate.
There are many risks involved in purchasing cryptocurrency tokens, including lcd. Lcd is intended to provide a credit on our proposed smartglass platform. Before purchasing tokens, and indeed when purchasing any cryptocurrency, one should consider the risk factors carefully. The lcd token value can be adversely affected by any of the following, which may result in the token having no value: (a) changes in political, social, economic, stock or cryptocurrency market conditions, and the regulatory environment in the countries in which lucyd conducts its respective businesses and operations; (b) the risk that lucyd may be unable to execute or implement its business strategies and future plans; (c) changes in interest rates and exchange rates of fiat currencies and cryptocurrencies; (d) changes in the anticipated growth strategies and expected internal growth of lucyd; (e) changes in the availability and fees payable to lucyd in connection to its anticipated products, businesses and operations; (f) changes in the availability and salaries of employees who are required by lucyd to operate its respective businesses and operations; (g) changes in preferences of users of lucyd products and the lucyd ecosystem; (h) changes in competitive conditions under which lucyd operates, and the ability of lucyd to compete under such conditions; (I) changes in the future capital needs of lucyd and the availability of financing and capital to fund such needs; (j) war or acts of international or domestic terrorism; (k) occurrences of catastrophic events, natural disasters and acts of god that affect the businesses and/or operations of lucyd; (l) other factors beyond the control of lucyd; and (m) any risk and uncertainties associated with lucyd and its businesses and operations, the lcd tokens, the lcd tge and the lucyd ecosystem.
Blockchain technology will let anyone easily develop and distribute content on our platform. We believe the LCD token will enable Lucyd to scale exponentially, by unifying our global developer and user base with a single transparent ledger. We plan for the LCD token to be mined via the creation of highly rated AR content, automatically rewarding new developers for getting involved in the platform.
At Lucyd we believe in accountability, governance and highest standards of reporting. It is a mindset that comes from multiple years of experience in working in public companies. Our finance lead is a CPA with over seven years of experience as an auditor with Deloitte, one of the most respected public accounting companies in the world. We believe that this contributes to and informs our internal controls when it comes to financial reporting. The management team will provide to our token holders, semi-annual project progress reports to be reviewed by third party auditors. In addition, we will provide regular product updates. All of our team members are held to highest standards of integrity. The lucyd team’s tokens are nontransferable until march 2019. We believe in the project, and we want to demonstrate that we are committed to the development of ergonomic smartglasses and the launch of a successful e-shop.
Blockchain is really powerful when combined with AR smartglasses for a number of reasons. First of all, the ability to rapidly access cryptocurrency info and statistics is a must for people involved in blockchain, from everyone to token traders to core developers. AR has the potential to deliver this info, handsfree, in real-time. This undoubtedly will create a competitive advantage to those who use AR. But in our opinion the biggest two synergies between AR and blockchain are in terms of security and content. For security, AR smartglasses can bring new security features to crypto transactions, by storing crypto in a prescription glass that can only be used by the owner, by adding security layers like voice enabled passwords, and by using blockchain security apps like Rivetz to quickly secure one’s smartglass. In the future, when crypto payments may be more widely used in the day to day, initiating transactions from a wearable like smartglasses could be quick and secure. One use Lucyd envisions is vocal token transfers from one smartglass user to another. In terms of content the potential is huge. Lucyd envisions an open developer ecosystem, where anyone can rapidly create and share AR content, both by porting existing media and apps into AR, and by creating natively in AR interfaces. Blockchain can become the backbone of an AR economy, uniting all the users of a platform on a decentralized network, where content can be freely exchanged peer to peer. We envision a P2P marketplace for AR content, which could be powered by a simple token. Lucyd created the LCD token with this in mind, and think it may also be useful for introducing new customers of our smartglasses to the blockchain world with token rewards, airdrops and more.
We are currently developing two unique apps. Our first app is focused on Lucyd LOUD®, and will be called LINK. Its goal is to improve the synergy of wearables and IoT devices. This app is concerned with a wearable future, and making the overall UX of Lucyd smartglasses more convenient and connected. Lucyd has just filed for its 14th patent for the LINK app. The second is an LCD wallet app for storing and sending our token on various devices.
