ZEN is a new type of social video platform where anyone can become a paid influencer and earn an amazing new form of money!


ZEN is an app that lets teenage fans of pop culture share short videos and chat with their peers, but it's also much more... it's a new type of social media business that empowers users instead of exploiting them- it enables them to build community the way they want and to earn a powerful new form of digital money, our new ZEN native cryptocurrency, just by doing what they love.

Today's Social Platforms Exploit Users

Every day millions of teenagers across the globe create and consume fandom videos that receive millions of views and attract large audiences on platforms like Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat.  Access to these audiences, this attention, represents billions of dollars a year in economic value to advertisers and others.

Unfortunately for these teenagers, the business model of the platforms is to exploit this content and these users – meaning the users creating the value don’t receive any of the money. These teens are savvy and recognize they are creating value, but are forced to turn to informal shadow markets where they sell peer-to-peer ads and social media accounts to capture any of that value as actual money.

The Shadow Market

You might be surprised to learn that there is a large and unruly market operating in the shadows of platforms like Instagram and Snapchat.  It's here that all types of social influencers grow their audiences and make money by doing business with each other, also known as a peer-to-peer marketplace.  The common types of transactions include:

  • Buying/selling ads called “shout outs” by the hour.  These are simply ads promoting a social media account, as in "come check out X account!".
  • Buying/selling entire accounts.

In addition, with no help from the platforms, they sell sponsored posts to third-party advertisers who want to get their message delivered to audiences in a more authentic way.  These sponsored posts are already a $1 Billion industry and are an important driver of the shadow market.


The platforms have been able to ignore this phenomenon while exploiting the content and engagement it produces to generate enormous revenues for themselves.  However, the tide is turning.  Vine was once the most popular video sharing app on the planet but was abandoned by its top influencers after their request to share in the revenue was rejected- forcing it to eventually shut down. 


The informal shadow market is large and dynamic out of necessity, but has three major problems:

 

1. It’s very difficult for buyers and sellers to find each other

2. No one knows the fair price for anything

3. Trust is a major issue because fraud is rampant

References 

Examples of the Shadow Market

These problems cannot be solved with just a new type of product but requires a radically new type of social media business- one that empowers its users vs. exploiting them.

ZEN is the solution.  It is a social video network for fandom communities that connects fans to other fans better than anyone else and helps any user become a paid influencer through a blockchain-powered marketplace.

ZEN is a Social Video Network for Fandom Communities 

Click to Download ZEN for iOS on the App Store

ZEN is the first and only social app designed specifically to meet the demands of fandom video communities.  This includes:


  • High-Quality Video and Seamless Looping: Our users are extreme sticklers for video quality and loops that don't miss a beat.

  • Community Organization and Discovery:  ZEN enables any community of fans, no matter how big or small, to organize their content into channels and by content type.

  • Advanced Communications: Open public chats can be created at any time around any subject, and can scale to thousands of simultaneous users.  Private chats can also scale from 1-on-1 to hundreds of participants.

  • Curation: We regularly feature users and run contests to highlight the best content and creators.

  • Revenue Sharing and Marketplace (under development): ZEN is the only app of its kind to develop a revenue model meant to make money for our users from the get-go, and our blockchain-powered marketplace will take these efforts to an unprecedented level.



The Reviews Are In

ZEN is Catching On

Just since May 2017 ZEN has achieved significant traction, with 30,000 organic new users and tremendous growth in the amount of content and video views.

Fandom: At ZEN We Are All Fans

ZEN Users Express their Identity and Connect to other Fans through Video

The typical ZEN user is a 14 to 18 year-old member of Generation Z and a super-fan of some aspect of pop culture: anything from Harry Potter movies to video games, to Japanese Anime cartoons, and all major league sports.  


These young people don't just consume content but create it, and by doing so attract a large audience of their peers, audiences that are otherwise hard to reach and highly desirable for all types of advertisers.  Despite this, these teen influencers make the least amount of money relative to the size of their audiences on traditional social media.


In short, they are the perfect first users for the new type of social platform we're building.

The ZEN Business Model

Making Money By Helping Users Make Money

One way to unlock a huge market is to find a hidden “shadow market” existing in a corner of the economy. - Roger Lee, Jeff Lu, and Deepak Ravichandran of Battery Ventures

ZEN Makes Money by Helping Our Users Make Money


ZEN will make money in at least three ways:

  • Our share of ad revenue from a unique Revenue Sharing Program
  • Transaction fees on all marketplace transactions
  • Sales of retained coins 

ZEN Marketplace Interaction Mock-up

Formalizing the Shadow Market


ZEN is the first social media app of its kind where any user can become a paid influencer by building an audience and easily earning our new ZEN native cryptocurrency through a marketplace integrated directly into the product.  

This new marketplace will present ZEN influencers with multiple revenue generating features, include transparent pricing for buyers and sellers, and handle all transactions with no possibility of fraud.  

When coupled with the powerful incentives driven by ZEN's cryptocurrency, the marketplace will unlock the massive value our users already know how to create.  The features will include:


  • Ad Revenue Sharing Program: An expanded and automated program will be re-launched with an initial focus on ads for mobile games.

  • Automated Re-post Purchases and Distribution: Users already buy and sell re-posts on platforms like ZEN, Twitter and formerly on Vine.  This process can be highly automated, making re-posts a perfect foundation for a highly efficient marketplace.

  • Opt-in Sponsored Post Campaigns: Users will be able to opt-in to sponsored post campaigns from a variety of advertisers, including their peers.

  • Official Channel Transfers: All videos on ZEN are organized into channels that people follow- and which we will enable to be officially bought and sold through the marketplace.


The ZEN Ecosystem

Everyone is a Stakeholder

ZEN is not just a new type of product it is a new type of business, one that will transform our users into stakeholders by requiring everyone in the marketplace to exclusively use our ZEN cryptocurrency for access and transactions.


Our coins are designed to be digital assets that grow in value over time along with the growth of the ZEN business, thus incentivizing all the stakeholders to keep ZEN growing in a virtuous cycle of value creation.


Click Here to Read the Non-technical Whitepaper


The ZEN stakeholder model will eventually be expanded into an entire decentralized ecosystem of third-party products and services, simply by enabling them to easily accept our coins as payment.  

ZEN's cryptocurrency puts the same technology and dynamics behind Bitcoin, the original cryptocurrency, at the heart of our business- but with the value driven by the proven demand for access to social media audiences.  Demand that already reaches tens of billions of dollars per year and is still growing fast.

The Token Distribution Event (ICO) is planned for Q4 2018 

(actual date is subject to change)

Hooked on Startups Podcast discussion on ZEN and our coins with Founder & CEO Frank E. Banks

The ZEN Token Distribution Event (ICO)

The ZEN Token Distribution Event (ICO)

Our ZEN native cryptocurrency (ZNX) will be the ultimate reward for any user that creates value on ZEN and will be earned through participation in the marketplace.  The individual units of these cryptocurrencies are often referred to as "tokens" and like most of these tokens. The ZEN native cryptocurrency will be smart contracts built on the Ethereum blockchain.  


The public sale of our coins, called a Token Distribution Event or Initial Coin Offering, is planned for Q4 of 2018 (actual date is subject to change) with the goal of raising at least $10 Million in order to fund the accelerated build-out of the core ZEN product and marketplace.


Limited Time Pre-ICO Discounts!

Token generation events are an increasingly popular way to raise money for early-stage ventures like ours, but executing an ICO properly will itself require at least $300-500K.  Your investment is a critical step forward in this process.   


As a special incentive, we're excited to offer you the option to convert your stake into our cryptocurrency instead of equity, at the time of the planned ICO in late 2018 and at discounts of up to 50% off the ICO price.  


Early Liquidity

If you choose to convert your stake to coins they will be transferable on one or more exchanges once issued, giving you the option of much earlier liquidity than the typical 3-5 years for startup equity investments.

For our convertible note holders who do not wish to convert their stake to coins the normal convertible terms will continue to apply.

“This blockchain wave won’t be stopped”

Our founder, Frank Erik Banks was interviewed by Forbes about the recent crypto ad crackdown and how ZEN is the first SEC-compliant pre-ICO.

“There's a ton of political heat on Facebook and Google in particular,” explains Frank Erik Banks ZEN Founder and CEO,  “and the last thing they want is for the SEC to start breathing down their necks too.  But blockchain and cryptocurrencies are legitimate once-in-a-lifetime technologies. Ultimately what the ad bans will absolutely do is clear out the fly-by-nighters and bad actors, and that can only help people like us."

50% Discounts and $100 Minimum Are Permanently Back for Everyone!

6 months ago

GREAT NEWS!

We've made two super important changes to the campaign that everyone should know about:

1.  DISCOUNTS OF UP TO 50% ARE BACK FOR EVERYONE - PERMANENTLY

By popular request, we're extending our original most generous discounts of up to 50% off future ZENCoins to EVERYONE who invests in this campaign- all the way through the close.  If you've already invested you don't have to do anything at all, you already automatically qualify for the best discounts at whatever level you already invested, including 20% off your future ZENCoins for an investment of just $100!

Amending our Securities Offering

6 months ago

Hello! Recently, a change was made to the ZEN offering. Here's an excerpt describing the specifics of that change:


ZEN is extending the end date of their offering, decreasing their minimum investment amount, and offering a discount on tokens to all existing investors.


When live offerings undergo changes like these on StartEngine, the SEC requires that certain investments be reconfirmed. If your investment requires reconfirmation, you will be contacted by StartEngine via email with further instructions.
