What's Your Billion Dollar Business Idea or Invention?

Rewards

Dear Crowdholders, some of you will be familiar with Pitch Investors Live from my previous tasks here, but for those who aren't, Pitch Investors Live is similar in essence to the television shows Shark Tank, and Dragons' Den, but online, live, and with crypto-elements (being built upon Ethereum).  

And to celebrate the Pitch team currently offering a "Golden Ticket" for one lucky winner to rub elbows with industry leaders from the entreprenuer and business world, including Shark Tank's, Kevin Harrington, at their upcoming "Pitch Mastermind" event - I thought that today I'd drop a task to assess the inventiveness of Crowdholders:

What's your secret as yet unrealised billion dollar business idea or invention?  The one you just know would make you Bill Gates level rich if only you could get your idea in front of the right people.  And/or make the world a better place.  Or alternatively, do you have a recurring problem or issue that you wish a solution was invented for, if only somebody would get on and invent it - and what is it?   

You can be as silly, or as serious, as you choose...   :)

I can't know if this is a 1 bill' $ idea, and how it can be achived, but i'd like to share it (use them freely).

The idea is

A privete meeting resterunet/place that's secured with real world encryption of a maze of multi Enteris/Exit's to the facility.

*There is no use of cash (only privete coins) 

*No pre resurvation and No data should be collected (temporary QR/Seed code to enter/exit the meeting room)

*Food/Drinks will be deliverd anonymously with a off grid robot.

Well if I tell my super-secret idea it would not be super-secret anymore and everybody would copy it.... :P 

Kidding, actually I do not have such idea/masterplan. Well I wish that I would have it, because it does seem very appealing, but everything that comes to mind, after some research I see that someone else already did it :)

 

Most important thing here is that I would encourage anyone who does have the idea to pursue it! The idea itself means nothing if you do not have the courage to try to bring it to life. If it is really good, it will not be so hard to find investors or customers. If nobody will be interested in the idea, it probably is not as good as you think it to be anyway ;)

Well, since I work as a Community Manager, I've always had an ads business in mind.

1. On the one hand, focused on online videos. Obviously, video is a huge category, as it is the clearest metaphor of television advertising, and nobody has really deciphered it. The idea would come from user-generated content (blogs, social networks, etc.). This ad unit should be priced, measured and standardized in a different way.

2. An interesting idea would be the monetization of international traffic. Today, many social and advertising networks attract an enormous amount of international traffic, much of which is badly monetized due to the lack of direct relations with advertisers in the countries of origin.

3. As content increasingly separates from online distribution using widgets, syndication and aggregation, more and more branded content exists outside the target sites of brand publishers.  Many of these types are organizing vertical networks to take advantage of larger, more reliable networks. Thus, it would be interesting to create vertical ad networks.

4. Efficient ad inventory brokerage. As ad networks become more technologically advanced, enabling APIs, automated campaign management, a multitude of targeting options, the world's ad inventory is becoming more efficient over time.

My kids are cat lovers. Currently, they have 2 cats. They are cute cats, I like them. But, I do not like it when the cats poop any places. 

From this experience, my business idea is building a Cat Training Center. It is a business that offers cat training services. One of the training services include: performing toilet activities independently.

It's a multi-billion business idea for sure. According to colorfulcritters, in 2007 there were over 500 million cats living with humans around the world. That's 12 years ago!

My idea revolves around recycling. We really need a program that works. Electronic waste is growing rapidly. Chemicals,paint etc are bad for the environment but not going away any time soon. Now we can't even recycle glass in the US because we were sending it to China but it's too expensive now. We are going backwards here. We need a system where everything can be recycled/reused.

It's definitely a huge problem. I despise how much plastic-waste I personally end up with at the end of each week, but it's pretty difficult to avoid with most everything coming packaged in single-serving plastic trays, etc. these days. :/

On the plus-side there are things in development that might help in that area at least. One thing I saw recently that was interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wxra-pK0ci8

But yes, an all-encompassing program would be great. :)

This is my idea...

1. to build a decentralize school that is built on blockchain: it works such that students will come to school and will learn (be taught) by a robot or through a screen like a video conferencing or pre-recorded video, and after that assignments will be given to the students. at the end of the term, student will be able to take exams and get graded.

the blockchain will help to store each student's data, and progress in the school and through proof of work they will access their assignment, homework, tests, and exams.

The school will be made free and made available in rural villages where cost of building and maintaining a school will be high since the school will be able to be run (controlled) remotely from one's home.

the school building will be made up of just one big hall where students of a certain level will all gather for classes, the school will be made totally open and students will join through their freedom.

2. the second ones have to do with farming, the planting. harvesting, processing, and packaging of edible nuts such as cashew, almond. this has been done in some parts of the world, but to start a project as such in Africa, most especially West Africa.

There are still more, but these are the ones most feasible for the now. looking to see a great project from here.

Billion-dollar ideas? Yesss! I have a lot and here are some of them

1. Most African countries don't have a lot of high-rise buildings or skyscrapers for that matter. In my country, the tallest building doesn't even have 50 floors. As a form of real estate, if a lot of these skyscrapers can be built similar to the city of  New York or even one-fifth the state of New York in my country alone and rented out at affordable prices to the citizens, I'm sure someone will be on his/her way to be the next Andrew Carnegie. In my country, we waste a lot of space and I'm sure most of you'll admit that a 100m x 100m piece of land with a skyscraper 80m high and containing some 200 rooms will definitely house more people and is more economical compared to a simple two-storey building on the same piece of land. In my country, you'll see the latter.

2. I've been thinking about the first crypto-funded movie where all tickets are paid for in ethereum, lisk, z-coin, litecoin, ripple, bitcoin, aeternity, YUP or any other cryptocurrency the buyer of the ticket has. All actors must be paid in crypto and the movie itself must be centered around cryptocurrency and its future. The movie of course must be streamed on a blockchain-based streaming site like Sliver TV (THETA), D-Live or Viewly. Just look at the crypto community worldwide. Don't you think they'd be interested in a crypto-based movie? Imagine the money this can bring in.

3. The railway system in my country is dead. Revive it with modern-day trains with good maintenance and believe me you'll be a billionaire.

4. Some cryptocurrencies have the potential to make people billionaires. Dent, for instance, reached an all-time high of $0.111397 on January 9, 2018. Its price is $0.000439 as at the time of writing. If you bought 10 billion Dent for $4.39 million and say in the next 5 years it reached its previous all-time high, you'd be a billionaire.

5. I want to record the first music album based on cryptocurrencies but I don't know where to start from. It won't make anyone a billionaire but it's a great idea that can certainly make you millions with the right marketing to the right people and the right investments. If paired or included in the crypto-based movie I talked about, it will be massive.

6. Waste management isn't prioritised in a lot of countries worldwide. In my country for instance, a fully functioning waste management/treatment plant where waste is segregated properly (plastic, paper, food, metal/electronic wastes, etc.) and recycled is a billion-dollar industry. Aside selling a lot of these recycled wastes in the form of different products, you will actually be paid to collect the waste from homes. It's tedious work but definitely profitable. According to the UN, the quantity of plastic waste in the oceans will outnumber that of fish by 2050. Do you see where we're heading? Waste can definitely be big money if we can recycle and fuse it back for reuse in the environment.

Tim Prior guru

Skyscrapers and railways are definitely billionaire territory. And as you say, I'm sure there are folk out there making plans. Also agree that waste-management, while not glamorous, can be a potential gold-mine.

And love the crypto-themed movie, and album ideas. Particularly the latter knowing how knowledgeable you are in regards to the financials of music streaming, etc. I've heard a few crypto-themed songs on YouTube, and they're usually popular. This is my favorite thus far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3TzVgGyBFs

Please Elon Musk, make this idea happen.  Condom breakage happens to a big % of people. Some people are into much of a rush to properly put one one correctly. When this happens, all kinds of unwanted problems arise. The solution is the condom box. When you are ready just insert and it will magicly roll on and you will be ready to go. The prototype is ready but i am unwilling to test it out.

I look forward to disrupting the agricultural sector in Africa by modernising agriculture and connecting farmers with consumers. I intend to build the largest network of farmers across countries and across continents there by making Africa self reliant creating more jobs and making Africa the food basket of the world. Africa has the most fertile lands in the world by yet remains one of the poorest. With so many resources we can take advantage of, I intend to make this by using e-commerce where people don't no longer have to go to the market but I supply them to their homes even at a cheaper rate.

Wow let me say mine here. 

 

1. I am planing on building a financial institution like PayPal that will be fully integrated with the Nigerian system, so as to connect the Nigerian local business to the world. The idea is that most companies in Nigeria find it quite hard to transfer funds between other international companies without a lot of third party companies, so this site will be able to cut those third parties to make the transaction more easy and also to cut transactions fees.

 

2. My next big plan is concern with hardware... To build a company that builds hardware for electronics appliances most especially mobiles and laptop... Because here in Nigeria it is really hard to get genuine product and quality product especially batteries and chargers... 

 

Looking forward to these

There’s a lot of projects out their that aim to tokenize energy supply and market. Usually, green energy. One thing that’s keep coming to my mind it’s why we can’t produce our own energy needs. As a Portuguese citizen it’s really easy to understand that there’s a sustainable solution for that. We’ve plenty of sunny days all the year. Unfortunately, Portuguese governments tend to spend a huge amount of resources on big infrastructures and give all the profit to big corporations.

Hopefully we'll see lots of progress in the coming years in this area Nuno.

A new sector of tokenization of commodities is emerging in a crypto economy. It is highly expected being not contrary to common sense. Once virtual crypto assets in the form of coins and tokens are successfully evolving, why not to tie some real-world commodities to crypto?

Full stack Blockchain developer Looking for new Challenges

Well this is a bit embarrassing because I am a bit shy of telling my dreams :"D 

First Idea was:

Make a mobile app when I take a photo of the close I see How they will look like on me. for example If I gave take a photo  of a T-shirt I could see a photo of me wearing it

Second Idea I am currently working on it:

Version control website like GitHub but decentralized and you could make pull requests like normal GitHub but you got token as reward and you have competition where you earn tokens the exact way as crowd-holding

Third Idea was:

A decentralized system for real state investments, In order to invest your money on residential building , each of the investors contribute with a share of the construction cost and the benefits are distributed proportionally to the amount they invested in. However, it is necessary to keep track of all costs to determine incomes/outcomes of your investments, which is NOT easy. You could got fooled or simply find it difficult to keep track/understand some financial stuff. Blockchain is the solution to this problem. During the constructions, all investors keep track of the costs and the benefits. You could buy/sell your share at any time with a very safe way.

I think I have more Ideas but this the only 3 I remember for now.

I actually saw something similar to the t-shirt app idea a while back (think it might have even been on Shark Tank). Great idea though.

I read that Github have been removing people based on their geographic location, so a decentralized version definitely sounds like a great idea.

And love your real-estate idea, and agree that blockchain sounds like the solution. Have seen a lot of projects in the real-estate/blockchain space - but never one presented quite in that DAO-type way...
