1. First TAP is backed by software, only then it reaches the market;
1. When paying for Pledged IP, TAP value is equal to XTAP rate and as with new Pledgers this value grows, it provides surplus commission to distributors, while maintaining low fees to Pledgers;
- TAP effectively becomes accumulating discount coupon in a period while Aciety is on-boarding new Pledgers and universal software coupon - when on-boarding will reach maturity (at roughly 10,000 products);
- Pledged Software – Pledger confirms: a) they have full rights to
sell or otherwise distribute the software they listed on Aciety
b) descriptions of such software are accurate and not misleading;
c) they took necessary steps and will honor any purchase over 100 TAP for
their Pledged IP at equal terms as their traditional clients with up to
one work day delay; d) they will provide Aciety an up to date pricing of
their Pledged IP and that it will be used when calculating how much TAP
at XTAP rate should be used to pay for the Pledged IP; e) if pricing in
EUR or any other currency in Pledger’s official website (or websites) is
less than stated in Aciety Marketplace, Aciety and/or any TAP holder can
request such pricing to be used when using TAP for purchase; f) they will
provide support to buyers of their Pledged IP as stated by the Pledger in
Pledged IP licenses and/or their product page descriptions.
- Pledged Value – Pledger confirms: a) they understand Pledge value defines how much Aciety, distributors and stakeholders can buy their product for TAP coupon before their Pledge expires, in the event Pledger would like to terminate the Pledge (if Pledger returns their Pledge Reward in full to Aciety, Pledge Minimum value would be used instead of Pledge value); b) if they request to terminate the Pledge, they will receive 75% on remaining sales proceeds, which would be distributed to the Pledger once Total Pledged Value grows higher than it is at the date the Pledger requested to terminate their Pledge.
- Pledge Allowance – Pledge Allowance is no more than (lowest of the following
values, but not less than 25,000 EUR): a) specified by Aciety on
individual case basis; b) 10% (ten per-cent) of Total Pledged Value;
- TAP Distribution - Aciety has issued and distributes 10 million TAP coupons. TAP may be released outside Aciety (in Aciety System and/or over blockchain for better authentication) and Aciety will exchange the older versions of TAP to the newer ones to retain a total of up to 10 million units of TAP in Circulation. Pledger confirms they will accept TAP at XTAP rate for as long as Aciety distributes TAP as per Aciety Coupon Model. If Pledger fulfills all conditions within this Agreement, they will receive Pledge Reward. If Pledger does not fulfill any of the conditions in this Agreement, they may receive a penalty up to the size of their Pledge Reward, paid in TAP to Aciety.
- Other Conditions – Aciety has made 1 million EUR pledge as a first
pledger and will accept TAP for its products placed in Aciety Marketplace
for as long as there will be any TAP in Circulation. Aciety maintains
database of all Pledges and gives access to a list of products that could
be bought for TAP to any TAP holder, owning over 1000 TAP if requested,
with limitations as set by Pledgers.
- Untimely Termination – In case Pledger cannot fulfill their Pledge
anymore for any reason on their own, they agree to pass access to Pledged
IP to Aciety with the right to sell such Pledged IP for the amount equal to
Pledge with all sales proceedings going in equal splits to Supplier Pool
and Client Pool.
Aciety Coupon Model
Aciety has designed a coupon distribution model, which ensures that TAP
is distributed primarily to its stakeholders and in a way
to maximize growth of Aciety Marketplace and TAP adoption. There is a
limited number of TAP (ten million coupons), distributed between five
coupon pools, each with certain distribution conditions:
- Supplier Pool – 2 million (20%) TAP coupons rewarded to Pledgers as
Pledge Reward, per its reward formula.
- Partner Pool – 2 million (20%) TAP coupons rewarded to partners, who
should provide substantial growth in Aciety Marketplace clientele, or
Pledgers. Limitation – Aciety has a right to reward partners in total no
more than 2 * Total Pledge Rewards + 100,000 TAP in any given point of time.
- Infrastructure Pool – 2 million (20%) TAP coupons rewarded to
infrastructure producers, who contribute legal, technological, or business
support to expansion of Aciety Marketplace and/or use cases for TAP.
Limitation – Aciety has a right to reward infrastructure producers in total
no more than 2 * Total Pledge Rewards + 100,000 TAP in any given point of
- Client Pool – 2 million (20%) TAP coupons sold as software coupons to
Aciety clients (with intention to favor software service companies, which
could use TAP to buy products for their clientele). Limitation – Aciety has
a right to sell clients in total no more than
2 * Total Pledge Rewards + 100,000 TAP in any given point of time.
- Team Pool - 2 million (20%) TAP coupons split between shareholders
and employees of Aciety. Limitations: a) Locked for 1 year from the moment
Total Pledged Value will surpass 10 million EUR; b) Unlocked afterwards
proportionally based on formula: 0.25 * (sum of TAP distributed from Supplier, Partner, Infrastructure and Client Pools).
