*PhunCoin is only accepting investments from within the United States, with the exception of New York State.
Phunware, Inc. is a group of companies trailblazing in the data field and is a publicly traded company that holds the majority of assets and intellectual property related to the business (“Parent Co.”). PhunCoin, Inc. (“Issuer”) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent Co. focused on developing, distributing and maintaining the PhunCoin token ecosystem (the “PhunCoins”). Issuer benefits from the material support provided by Parent Co., including but not limited to its capitalization, senior management and intellectual property, however, investors are only entering into a contract with the Issuer and should be aware that they will not become shareholders, debt holders or have rights directly related to Parent Co. Additionally, investors should be aware that as Parent Co. is publicly traded, certain rules relating to conflict of interest, disclosure and compliance with federal law may impact parent Co.’s ability to support Issuer’s PhunCoin ecosystem.
In today’s internet economy, users are the product. Giants like Google and Facebook make billions selling your user data. At the same time, the world’s biggest brands depend on data sets to be accurate and rich to engage consumers with relevant and targeted messages.
PhunCoin will connect users directly to those brands and rewards them for sharing data and engaging with brand’s content. Brands will receive verified targeting data for the consumers who choose to engage with their content.
With its unique global reach and distribution, PhunCoin will allow consumers to take back control of their data.
Investors on Republic get the same access as other investors in to Phase 0, the most competitively discounted round
The PhunCoin token represents the value of personal data. In the at-scale mobile ecosystem, we see data transacted every day and how important data is to the brand/audience relationship. Even the most basic personal data, such as language spoken, location data or mobile application usage data, is worth, in PhunCoin's belief, at a minimum, $0.01-$0.05 per each usage of that data. Other more specific data like purchase intent and other valuable behaviors can be worth as much as $2-$10 per interaction. Our data exchange will handle the appropriate pricing of the value of this data and interactions based on supply and demand.
PhunCoin data will be validated using a blockchain-based self-sovereign identity, with every interaction signed using a private key only available to that person. Data from this system will be less susceptible to fraud than typical sourcing approaches, differentiating it from other sources of data available to brands.
Phuncoin is created and backed by a real company with a decade of experience in data. Since 2009, Phunware has been helping Fortune 5000 brands engage, manage and monetize their mobile audiences.
Today, Phunware’s platform reaches 1 in 10 mobile devices globally. By crypto-enabling that platform, PhunCoin is uniquely positioned for mainstream adoption. PhunCoin will offer a way to activate that size, scale and reach to put users and publishers back in control of their data in the process.
The following timeline represents the growth and stability of Phunware throughout the years.
Subject to change based on availability of resources and other influencing factors such a regulatory approvals for relevant regulation.
