UAT Fixes the Broken Advertising Model

The current digital advertising model is inefficient at best, and broken at worst. Publishers are not being paid fairly for their content, Users are faced with escalating ad loads as well as increasingly interruptive ad units; and Advertisers deal with an unacceptable level of inefficiency and fraud.

 

The Universal Attention Token (UAT) intends to solve these challenges. Built using blockchain technology, and deployed at scale, the Universal Attention Token aims to deliver greater value to Publishers, a better experience for Users--all while improving the ability for Advertisers to reach prospective customers.

 

SocialFlow's UAT is a digital token that corresponds to consumer attention. Having such a token allows us to account for consumer actions in a way that is simple, private, and trustworthy. The fact that token transactions will be written to the blockchain is an important technical innovation—but you don’t need to be a technical expert to benefit. Just as you don’t need to understand hypertext transfer protocol (“http://”) to use the Internet, you don’t need to understand blockchain to use the UAT. When done well, it just works.

Existing Investors

SocialFlow has been backed by of some of the biggest names in venture capital. Three rounds of successful venture raises have allowed us to build our product and customer base. Venture funds who have supported SocialFlow include: 



The Offering

SAFE and the Pre-Sale Discount

The Pre-Sale offering will be structured as a Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE). The SAFE will convert into Security Tokens if and when the minimum threshold defined in the Offering Documents is met.

 

Participants in the Pre-Sale offering of the SAFE will receive a 20% discount on the price per Security Token at the time of conversion.

 

If the threshold defined in the Offering Documents is not met, the SAFE investment will convert into SocialFlow's Series C-1 shares in SocialFlow at the Series C-1 share price.

SocialFlow’s Security Token

If and when the SAFE converts into Security Tokens, the Security Tokens will represent non-voting junior preferred equity of SocialFlow, Inc.

 

Up to 1 billion Security Tokens will be outstanding at any given time.

 

500 million of these Security Tokens will be made available for External Sale. 

 

The remaining 500 million Security Tokens will be reserved for SocialFlow Uses, which include allocations to existing investors, employees, partners and advisors. 

 

A description of the terms of the SAFE is provided in the Offering Documents.

The sale has been structured with three milestones,

starting with a Pre-Sale using a SAFE:

Security Token Custody

We anticipate that the SocialFlow Security Tokens will be minted according to the ERC20 standard. They should be treated with the same standard of care you would treat other valuable instruments, such as stock certificates. In the event of loss of the Security Tokens, subject to applicable conditions and payment of a processing fee, SocialFlow may invalidate the lost tokens and issue replacements. 

Company: SocialFlow, Inc.

Corporate Address:  52 Vanderbilt Avenue, 12th Floor, New York, NY 10017

Description of Business: Social Marketing Software

Type of Security Offered: Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE)

Purchase Price of Security Offered: 

To the extent that the SAFE converts into Security Tokens, the Security Tokens will be issued at a 20% discount, and to the extent that it converts into Series C-1, the price per share of C-1 will be $0.7709


SocialFlow Buy-Back  

At least once per year, SocialFlow will evaluate the cash balance in the SocialFlow UAT ecosystem. If there is a sufficient cash balance, and with approval of the company’s Board of Directors, SocialFlow may conduct a token buy-back with a portion of the funds. Such a buy-back could reduce the number of Security Tokens outstanding.

 

Holders of Warrants or Options for Security Tokens will not be eligible to participate in a token buy-back unless they have exercised their Warrant or Option and hold Security Tokens at the time of any buy-back.

 

Please see “Risk Factors” in the Offering Documents.



A Novel Approach

SocialFlow intends to use a two-token approach. The Universal Attention Tokens are intended to be used within the UAT ecosystem and will be built on the Stellar platform. They will flow through the economy and act as the accounting mechanism for the UAT ecosystem. They are not for sale.

 

We anticipate that the SocialFlow Security Tokens will be built to the ERC20 token standard. Proceeds from the SAFE and any future Security Token sales represent an investment in SocialFlow and will be used to fund SocialFlow and its development of the UAT ecosystem.





With the UAT Ecosystem...

Revolutionizing the economics of media and advertising by rebalancing the digital advertising ecosystem. The UAT will improve the value proposition for all players: Publishers, Users, and Advertisers.

Publishers

Publishers and content creators should be compensated fairly for the quality content that keeps their users coming back.

Users

Users should be able to engage with content in an enjoyable way and have their time as well as the ownership of their data respected.

Advertisers

Advertisers should be able to build meaningful relationships with receptive audiences through high-quality messaging.

Security Token Liquidity: A Note from SocialFlow CEO Jim Anderson

5 days ago

As part of the broad solicitation associated with SocialFlow’s Universal Attention Token (UAT), I’ve met with investors ranging from individuals to family offices to hedge funds to crypto specialists. And a common thread across all the conversations is “What’s my path to liquidity?"

 

Unlike Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) that in most cases operate with little or no regulatory scrutiny, Security Token Offerings (STOs) such as SocialFlow’s are intended to be compliant with securities laws. Offering liquidity, in a manner that complies with applicable securities laws, is perhaps the most important challenge facing issuers of security tokens.

 

Companies who have launched or are pursuing the launch of SEC-compliant trading platforms for security tokens include names such as Open Finance Network, StartEngine, Templum, and TZero. SocialFlow has engaged in conversations with a number of these platforms, and while we as yet have no specific announcement to make, we’re encouraged by the progress they’re making.

 

The process for listing on a security token exchange varies by platform, and in many cases is still fluid. But it is starting to coalesce into some general steps:

 

1. Issue. Properly issue the security tokens. This may involve working with a trusted issuance partner, such as Polymath, TokenSoft, or Securitize, and developing a token to an appropriate standard (typically ERC20).

2. Control. Build processes and controls—using smart contracts and more traditional processes—to comply with appropriate regulatory lockup periods.

3. Comply. Submit documentation associated with a compliance review, to make sure that the underlying company is properly incorporated, that it meets the standards of the exchange and that the tokens map to the company’s capitalization structure.

4. Contract. Execute the listing agreement, setting the terms and requirements associated with listing on the exchange.

5. Market. Generate news and business results, develop a market-making program, and achieve liquidity.

 

A successful listing would allow investors to trade out of their positions once their lockup periods (12 months in a Reg D offer) expire. That is a marked contrast with the normal lack of liquidity in traditional investments in venture capital funds or in venture-backed companies (often 7 to 10 years). Real liquidity, quicker settlement, and easier compliance are all objectives of these platforms. Trading fees may be on the high side initially, though it seems obvious that increased competition will allow some companies to compete based on price.

We look forward to continuing the conversation with you, as there is much more to come!

 

Regards,
