The Token for Mobile Access

Initial Coin Offering Launches October 5th

Unlocking mobile internet through a blockchain micro-spotting and advertising system.



Mobile internet affordability and mobile capital accessibility are the main prohibitors for users to have unfettered internet usage.

Centralized big telcos, big banks and governments make it unfeasible for users in emerging markets to create capital and have access. In fact, the poor end up paying more for banking and telco access than the rich.

AirFox is solving the Mobile Dead Capital problem to unlock mobile accessibility for the underserved.

AirFox’s solution harnesses the decentralized power of the Ethereum blockchain and advertising to give users “AirTokens”, a new crypto-currency redeemable for mobile data, and eventually physical and digital goods. Users can then establish credit history through their opted-in device data and advertising behavior, enabling AirFox to fund spots via the AirTokens to any person with a smart phone.

AirFox is already integrated with hundreds of wireless carriers buying mobile data in bulk in order to have economies of scale.
  Carrier Coverage Spreadsheet

AirFox will replace the current mobile ecosystem with a more efficient, decentralized mobile ecosystem that is encompassed around the AirToken, a decentralized blockchain technology, that enables more efficient communication and transactions between the wireless carriers, publishers, advertisers, and mobile users.

Vision

"AirFox wants to make the mobile internet more affordable and accessible to more people."

How it Works

The AirToken is a new Ethereum ERC20 token that unlocks free mobile internet through advertising and spot rewards. Users can earn AirTokens by opting into advertisements and claiming spots, redeemable for mobile data recharges across 500 wireless carriers.

Users

Users will receive AirToken rewards for opt-in advertising (instead of the ads being an invisible burden on their data) and spots of AirTokens based on our internal AirFox user “credit-score.”

Carriers

AirFox will programmatically buy airtime and data in bulk from carriers. Carriers want to maximize spectrum and data usage from subscribers in order to maximize revenue.

Advertisers

Publishers will have higher monetization, new user reach, and a better user experience. Publishers can implement our AirToken reward, spot, and advertising system to enable higher user output.

Timeline

Phase 1

The first phase will enable users to earn free AirTokens via advertising for mobile recharges across 500 wireless carriers. Users can earn AirTokens via the Android AirFox Browser.

Phase 2

The second phase is enabling qualified users to redeem spots of AirTokens by collaterizing their prepaid account balance and using our AirFox internal user scoring algorithm. We will also expand the use of AirTokens for items outside of mobile recharges.

Users will be able to redeem spots of AirTokens for physical and digital products across our ecosystem.

Phase 3

The third phase is extending the use of AirTokens and our advertising / spot blockchain system outside of our own applications and across a direct network of publishers and advertisers.

Publishers and advertisers can reward their users with AirTokens via advertising "moments" and use our spotting system to provide capital for in-app purchases. This will be provided via an API and SDK that publishers can integrate into their applications and websites.
