WhenHub SAFT (Simple Agreement for Future Tokens)

Today might be one of the biggest days of my life, and it will be impossible to explain why that is so unless you know at least a little bit about blockchain, dAPPS, cryptocurrencies, Ethereum, and the legal distinction between a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) and an ICO.

If those words look unfamiliar, one of the biggest technical revolutions the world has ever known is sneaking up on you. The folks in Silicon Valley — who live about three years in the future compared to the rest of the country — can’t stop talking about this topic. The smartest people in the Valley tell me blockchain will change nearly everything, and already is. It’s like “the Internet” before anyone had heard of the Internet. That’s how big it is.

One small example is that startups are raising funds by creating and selling their own digital “tokens” or “coins,” using blockchain technology, that serve as the payment mechanisms within their products. The tokens have an advantage over regular money in part because you can program simple rules for them using distributed apps, or dAPPS, to add function to your product. And blockchain brings its own set of advantages I’ll mention below.

In the case of WhenHub, a dAPP will trigger an automatic payment when certain conditions are met. The effect is to eliminate billing and invoicing efforts for micro-contracts while creating a distributed record of each transaction that is impervious to manipulation.

My example doesn’t get at the full power of blockchain. It’s just one of the many things it can do.

The reason people buy these digital tokens from startups is that they hope the value will rise as the startup adds customers. The tokens are artificially limited in quantity, so the value of each token increases with demand. Customers of the startup won’t notice the rise in token value because prices within the product are pegged to nominal “real money” value. In other words, if one token is worth a dollar today, but worth ten dollars tomorrow, the startup auto-adjusts the price within the product to ten-percent of a token. The customer always pays the same “real money” price even as token values rise.

Tokens can easily be exchanged for Bitcoins or cash on websites that do that sort of thing. See Bitcoin Exchanges.

The process of creating digital tokens to raise funds is called an ICO (initial coin offering) when you do it the wild-west unregulated way. If you lawyer-up in advance, jumping through lots of (expensive) hoops to minimize future regulatory risks, your lawyers will tell you to call it a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT). A SAFT is a contract with the startup to issue you tokens if and when it is able to launch a network in which the token has utility value. That’s what WhenHub is announcing today.

To be clear, ICOs and SAFTs are not investments, nor do they give the buyer equity in the startup. But they do provide an easy way — compared to angel investing — to share in whatever success the startup experiences. With SAFTs and ICOs the startup describes its plans in a white paper so any potential token buyers can evaluate the risks. WhenHub already has several products on the market, with more coming soon, but we describe in our white paper a proposed new product that is based on our existing scheduling platform and takes advantage of blockchain. The proposed product (WhenHub Interface) is the one that will use digital tokens.

If you are new to this field, I hope I just gave you a toe-hold for understanding it. And I would be delighted if you share this post with friends.

Our tokens are only available in Australia, Canada, European Economic Area, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Russian Federation, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States (excluding New York State). If you are in the United States, you need to be an Accredited Investor (meaning kinda rich) to participate. Outside the United States, regulatory restrictions are lower.

Our Pre-sale is now in progress and our Public Sale starts on Nov. 10, 2017. During the Pre-sale, the minimum purchase amount is $ 50,000 and participants get an Early Bird bonus of 30%. For the Public Sale the minimum amount is $ 250, and the the Early Bird discount starts at 20% and decreases to none in two weeks.

Here’s the executive summary from our white paper. A link to the full paper is at the end.

Executive Summary

WhenHub proposes to build a mobile app for connecting
consumers to experts of all kinds via two-way video
streams, text, audio, or in person. The app will be part
of a larger service ecosystem called the WhenHub
Interface Network (WIN) (Patent Pending).

The service will use dAPPS (distributed apps) running
on the Ethereum blockchain to create secure micro-contracts
– that can be as short as 15 minutes – as well
as to provide frictionless billing and payment service. At
the end of each micro-contract, payment in the form of
WHEN Tokens will be automatically transferred to the
expert. No paperwork or billing is involved.

Users buy WHEN Tokens using a credit card or with
Bitcoins at an online exchange via the WhenHub
Interface app. The tokens are used within the app to pay
experts for their time.

For privacy, your phone number and address are not
shared with experts.

Our partners will provide verification services on
participating experts to give consumers confidence.

No international billing and currency issues when WHEN
Tokens are involved.

Pricing for experts can be fixed or auction-based.

In the gig economy, think of this product as a “long tail”
market for expert advice. Experts of all kinds can display
their availability whenever they like, for as short a window
as 15 minutes.

The WhenHub Interface app will use the existing
commercial WhenHub API for scheduling and geofencing
features.

WhenSense is our proposed technology for allowing
third-party sites to host ads about our participating
experts’ availability and share in the income from
completed contracts. Site owners paste our HTML code
into their site to participate.

WHEN Tokens are not an investment vehicle, but
because they will be artificially limited in quantity, their
value is expected to fluctuate based on customer
demand for the WhenHub Interface app.

WHEN Tokens are now available for public purchase via
a formal offering. Visit this page for details of the
offering.

Back to School: 3 Ways To Tell If Your Child Custody Agreement Is The Right Fit

Most co-parenting families with school-aged children have two basic parenting time schedules: one for school vacations and holidays and the other for the school year. If you and your former spouse separated or divorced over the summer, this month may be a crucial turning point as the two of you test out the “school year” portion of your child custody agreement for the first time. What can you expect from this new schedule, and how can you tell if changes are needed in order to help your children truly thrive in the coming months? Here are three ways to tell if the custody agreement you have in place is the best fit for your child, and for you.

Does Your Parenting Time Plan Reflect Realistic Expectations?
It’s natural for emotions to run high during a separation or divorce, especially when it comes to critical matters such as deciding child custody. Parents may initially make unrealistic custody grabs based on fear or insecurity, demanding full custody or the vast majority of parenting time, even if their work schedule or living arrangement makes this kind of plan impossible or even detrimental to their children.

If you veered at first towards making bold custody claims out of your hurt or angry feelings, hopefully you had an attorney by your side who was able to steer you towards making sound decisions for the sake of your children. If you were not so lucky, you may have a parenting time plan in place that might work in the short term, but down the road is at risk of imploding when schedules clash and you start showing up late for pick-ups (or not at all), or put your kids in situations in which they lack proper care and supervision.

Yes, it can take time for any co-parenting family to settle into a new school year routine. Still, take some time this month to give your parenting time plan an honest assessment. Does it reflect your need to punish your former spouse or your child’s needs to have a calm, stable school year with love and support from both parents? If your self-assessment reveals a parenting time plan that could use some tweaks, check in with an attorney to learn more about child custody modification, which you and your former spouse may be able to renegotiate on your own terms.

Does Your Parenting Time Plan Reflect Your Children’s Ages, Activities & Needs?
When you decided on a child custody arrangement, you probably took into consideration a number of factors such as your children’s ages, personalities and developmental needs; your careers and outside commitments; child care and the geographical distance between parents’ homes; and your children’s academic and extracurricular activities.

What is important to remember is that children can change, sometimes dramatically, in only the space of a few months. For example, maybe your child will discover their passion for soccer this year and now have practice and home and away games most of the week. Or perhaps your child will unfortunately hit a stumbling block in math and benefit from after school tutoring. Or maybe you will get a promotion at work with more pay — and more hours. On the other hand, perhaps your child is now in preschool or kindergarten and can handle more frequent transitions between parental homes. Or your child recently developed a health or medical need that makes staying in one home preferable.

As inevitable changes occur for your child (or for you or your former spouse), keep track of how they may affect your parenting time plan. For example, if your child has back-to-back tutoring and then sports practice after school, does it still make sense to schedule a dinner together on the same night? Or could a different plan benefit your child?

Parenting time plans are binding, so if you and your former spouse mutually agree to make permanent changes to the schedule that you believe are your child’s best interests, you will need to submit these changes to the courts. Also be aware that if you informally cede parenting time to your former spouse on a regular basis, your former spouse could go to court seeking to have these changes incorporated, with or without your consent.

Are You and Your Former Spouse Able to Maintain Communication?
Finally, a make or break issue for many parenting time plans is how well co-parents can communicate with each other to keep their schedule on track and workable for all involved. Something as simple as arranging to text each other with neutral comments to confirm pick ups and drops offs (i.e., “Will be at bus stop at 4 pm on Friday”) can go a long ways towards creating a positive co-parenting relationship. There are even divorce apps to help co-parents stay on the same page. All you need to do is upload your current parenting time plan and the app will send you both reminders of who needs to be where and when. Or go low-tech by using a notebook that you pass back and forth during custody swaps with notes on how your child is doing and other messages.

The bottom line? Consider it your ongoing homework assignment this year to gauge how well your parenting time plan is working, and whether you are doing your part to make it work. One last point to keep in mind? The old “dog ate my homework” excuse doesn’t apply when it comes to parenting your kids.
