Frequently Asked Questions

What is a SelfieYo Gold Token?

SelfieYo Gold Tokens, known as SGT, are an Ethereum ERC20 crypt utility token connected to the SelfieYo mobile social network. SelfieYo is a startup with apps on iPhone and Android that involves, among other things, earning points based on quality content shared locally.

SGT is the token through which you buy blockchain and social upgrade features on SelfieYo.

It is also possible to obtain SGT through SelfieYo by being a local growth contributor to the platform. The more you help drive early adoption, the more likely you are to earn SGT rewards.

SelfieYo will be announcing social media influencer programs designed to help early contributors who help us scale adoption worldwide.

SGT serves as a method of buying new social features within SelfieYo and creates an open ecosystem for users, major creators and holders of SGT.

SGT will eventually be accepted by SelfieYo directly as a method of payment for social media campaigns on the platform.

How can I buy SGT?

SGT is currently not available for sale in the U.S. while we are beta testing the utility integration and working with select partners globally.

When we feel we sufficiently meet and exceed the requirements to be fully qualified as a utility token, we will introduce SGT into the SelfieYo app in the U.S. and other markets.

The model is very similar to those of other apps that utilize a token based approach or subscription for in-app purchases. The difference is that SelfieYo seeks to provide everyone with a decentralization option for social content. This involves interaction with multiple public blockchains and requires network fees be paid by users.

SGT is meant to be a nominal payment method enabling SelfieYo users to access the blockchain features provided through the app.

Stay-tuned for more information when we release the public beta details.

Is there a minimum purchase amount?

When we open up in-app purchase ability for users, there is no minimum purchase amount, however there will be listed staking and subscription requirements.

For example, it is likely that to have a lifetime ad-free experience, a user will need to own at least 5 SGT in the mobile crypto wallet connected to the SelfieYo app.

For a 12-month subscription to the on-chain content program, we are evaluating a 1 SGT per month plan. More details and initial pricing will be released as we evaluate and improve network costs.

What are the high level tokenomic data points?

Total SGT token supply will never exceed 100MM. 50MM are being made available for app users and network partners to purchase. 1MM will become available after the beta testing for the app rewards earners and 49MM will be held by SelfieYo in escrow.

Of the amount held internally, all SGT are subject to the 4-year vesting schedule contained in the smart contract.

What makes SGT different from other tokens?

We’re very proud of the fact that we are much more than just a conceptual idea with a token launched. SelfieYo is a real product with a real development team that has been executing for several years.

We are taking a rigorous approach to global compliance with the token because we believe that, in the long-run, the companies that do this right have the opportunity to be a part of shaping the next generation of decentralized Internet technology for a very long time to come.

We don’t want you to buy SGT if you’re blindly hoping for some magic. Software development takes a lot of work. Building social engagement, real partnerships and a genuine, sustainable business takes time and money.

We are committed to doing some big stuff around making a major DApp, but this doesn’t happen overnight.

We think there is room in the market right now to be a part of a group of blockchain companies that raise the bar for crypto and build a community of intelligent token holders that understand the importance of long-term thinking, functional product and the ability to execute everyday on a global vision.

SelfieYo will retain a large portion of SGT in its own reserves and the entire amount is controlled within the smart contract by a 4-year vesting schedule. We believe this serves to establish everyone’s long-term interest alignment in making SGT a market leader within the cryptocurrency community.

Can you tell me more about the SGT team?

Our founder, Jamie Thompson, started SelfieYo with the belief that ephemeral messaging will become the de facto preferred method of communication for Gen-Z and younger Millennials around the world.

The future of decentralized social is all about visual messaging tied to new forms of the social graph that have more to do with time, location and your phone book than with the traditional concept of “friends” that has enabled the world of social to get to today’s level of omnipresence.

Jamie recruited and managed the initial team of SelfieYo developers through the consulting company he founded, Sprinklenet Labs, and began assembling a team of high-caliber crypto talent to implement the blockchain integration between SelfieYo and SGT.

Daniel and Jamie had worked together over the years at various technology companies and decided to ramp-up the blockchain efforts within SelfieYo in 2017 as it became clear that blockchain would provide an excellent technology infrastructure to implement the transparent sharing of content creation along with innovations in the market to align cryptocurrency holders with SelfieYo.

There has never been a better time in history to rapidly scale the complex innovation behind SelfieYo’s AI and existing technology.

Between them, Daniel and Jamie have a broad network of highly talented individuals that now work for SelfieYo or are likely candidates after the project completes its next fundraising round.

We look for people that are equally talented in areas of technical expertise that is useful to us and uncannily enthusiastic about reinventing how the world looks at the concept of the social graph, coupled with how blockchain will help define an enormous part of the data layer beneath our everyday social interactions.
