Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) February 12, 2015

Metaps Inc. (HQ: Tokyo, CEO: Katsuaki Sato, hereafter “Metaps”) announced that they have completed a $ 36 million Series C round of financing, headed by pre-existing and multiple new stakeholders in Japan and with the participation of a Silicon Valley venture capital firm. Regarding the new business partnerships formed in this round of funding, plans are to reveal details later this year.

CEO Katsuaki Sato commented, “At this stage of our growth we felt the timing was right to bring in more outside funding to help our AI and financial services initiatives reach the next level. We are already a trusted monetization partner for app developers worldwide, and we are expanding into a solutions provider for all e-commerce companies and smart device developers.”

Metaps was selected by Forbes Japan as one of the “Top Startups” in Japan for 2014, and Sato featured as one of the top 10 young entrepreneurs in Japan.

Metaps offers a one-stop app monetization platform “metaps”, supporting app analytics, user acquisition and monetization. The metaps Platform improves the efficiency and automation of app marketing by learning the patterns of users through the use of artificial intelligence (AI). The infrastructure of the metaps Platform has expanded to reach over 100 million app users through their network, which includes apps that have been downloaded a total of over 1.2 billion times.

Metaps has supported app monetization for developers through the formation of their 8 offices worldwide.

Intended use of Series C funding

1)    Expand implementation of artificial intelligence technology

Metaps will continue to advance automation and increase efficiencies across all types of businesses utilizing “big data” accumulated over time. This will be accomplished with data analysis, pattern recognition, future forecasting and by improving the accuracy of automated processes by the Metaps’ AI system. For these purposes, funding will be used towards aggressive hiring of experts in the field, and investing in necessary research.

As indicated in the corporate vision of Metaps: “Through big-data and computer learning, our aim is to be the world’s brain by empowering people to make smarter decisions”, Metaps will go beyond smartphones and make the capabilities of the metaps Platform accessible to developers for all smart devices. Metaps will plan product expansion with the goal of increasing the platform infrastructure to reach 10% of the world’s population (800 million people) by 2016.

2)    Expand financial services operations

Metaps is currently expanding the scale and operations of their new business, zero commission online payment service “SPIKE”. Over 50,000 accounts have been registered, and SPIKE is expanding rapidly amongst individual and small e-commerce businesses. With a mission to “Change the rules of money with technology”, SPIKE will strive to become an all-encompassing financial service and not limit itself to online payments.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Magellan Holdings, LLC, a leading provider of mobile OTT media delivery solutions, and Crowded Reality Inc, the worlds first crowd-funding platform for reality tv and talk shows, today announced a strategic partnership to stream new talk show Wake Up! “backstage” video content to mobile app users.

OTT delivery of content is now mainstream and quickly becoming the preferred delivery method, especially with recent net neutrality legislation in the U.S. and other countries around the world. OTT media delivery to custom mobiles apps is the new trend in media delivery by creating a unique “station / channel” for content owners. The Magellan OTT platform includes advertising, subscription, and pay-per-view capacities to enable immediate monetization of media content.

The first show to be fully funded, sponsored and distributed off the Crowded Reality platform, the show is hosted by the most beloved experts in Mind, Body, Spirit. Wake Up! is the show for the New Mainstream, providing insight into the answers people really want.

The brainchild of award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, a pioneer in the #SocialTV space, and Lisa Marie, a globally successful entrepreneur with a knack for cracking open new markets, the new multi-platform show app creates deep engagement with the audience though its Backstage Pass application, with more content, interviews, information and community. All the shows on the Crowded Reality platform have a #SocialTV component.

Wake Up! is about creating an atmosphere where the people who are “wondering about” can meet the people who “know about”, inspiring all to start “being about” this new way of making the world a better place, adding their social currency to the power mainstream TV.

“We are creating weekly segments that will highlight topics driven by our social media outreach, answering questions, providing information in a easy going, conversational mobile app format. Magellan’s OTT platform gives the viewing audience with a wealth of new exclusive media content and ability to stream previously aired weekly segments, and engage as a community, among a host of other features,” said Adryenn Ashley, CEO of 21st Century Pictures Group.

“Crowded Reality fully understands the future of media delivery over OTT and the importance to have a custom mobile app for content owners to maximize brand and financial upside. Due to our platform approach, each successful TV series on the platform can be quickly and at low cost configured to custom native mobile apps for a true ‘station / channel’ user experience,” said Greg McGregor CEO of Magellan.

About Magellan Holdings, LLC

Magellan ( is a San Francisco based software development company with significant experience in developing software to meet the most challenging applications. From a mobile industry perspective, Magellan’s experience developing software applications for mobile network operator (MNO) infrastructure has span from 1G-AMPS, 2G-GSM-CDMA-TDMA, 3G-UMTS, and 4G-LTE.

Over the past 20 years, Magellan Holdings, LLC and its core team (Magellan) has patented (in most cases) and developed such innovated products as BT Cellnet’s original Pay & Go, iBEAM’s video streaming platform, QoS / QoE solutions for 3G / 4G LTE for Hutchison Whampao (3), CDNs for Loral Space Systems’ satellite networks, advanced computer vision for retail auditing, object recognition technology with advertising applications, and data migration tools utilized by Workday and Google, among other large enterprises around the world.

About Crowded Reality Inc., the niche crowdfunding platform, created by award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, offers show creators three ways to fund their show, through a system designed to reveal the reach of new shows, and to incite competition for the opportunity to sponsor or air each show. With algorithmic triggers that alert pre-screened and “vetted” sponsors, the site interacts with and introduces show-specific sponsors even before the funding cycle is complete.

Using a factor called Social Currency, tied to proprietary back end tools, can calculate the reach and value to a sponsor and the demographic most interested in a show. This feature encourages sponsors to take action and secure their position with the show to leverage the social currency the show has built and gives potential sponsors the certainty they are looking for when choosing where to invest their marketing dollars, while leaving creative control in the hands of the show creators. Crowded Reality lets independent producers prove the viability of their reality TV and talk show concepts by crowd-funding the pilot, and using social currency, unlock access to sponsors and nationwide distribution.

In less than 100 days Crowded Reality has proven the concept, by fully funding one pilot, gaining $ 100K in sponsorship for talk show Wake Up!, and signing 2 shows into nationwide distribution. With over 11K+ visitors and garnering over 2.5M in social currency, Crowded Reality fulfills a gap in the marketplace between the command and control studio system and the new media makers who long for broadcast access.
