Established Product

Nexus is a social network built on modern technologies that also integrates popular features of e-commerce and crowdfunding. The network primarily concentrates on privacy, control of settings, security and listening to the voice of the community.

The Nexus platform hopes to integrate a full social interface that will be accommodated by a functional marketplace and ad platform that utilizes it's native coin, Social.

Nexus is an already existing and established product on the iOS App Store, Google Play Store and the web.

NOTE: The current ledgacy version of the platform (branded as "Nexus") will be deprecated in the coming months to make way for version 2.0, branded as "Social".


Social Debit Card

Connect your account wallet to your instant access Social debit card to spend your SCL as fiat currency anywhere in the world. Fees will be minimal and as the card uses Visa infrastructure you can use it almost anywhere in the world.

We will use a technique called JITF (Just in Time Funding). Thanks to MoxyOne, Social hopes to distribute the debit cards to our users by Q3 2018.


Multi-Wallet

Your Social account wallet will be able to hold and store any Ethereum ERC20 standard token.

ShapeShift.io integration will allow you to convert between tokens seamlessly straight from your Social account. Convert SCL between ShapeShift supported ERC20 standard tokens or buy SCL directly with other ERC20 tokens. The Social account wallet is planned for launch early 2018.


Integrated Tor & VPN

By integrating the Tor API to our mobile applications, we hope to keep Social a secure and private social network. Tor functionality will be opt-in and only used by the account if requested.

We also have plans to use a built-in VPN within both mobile apps that can be paired with Tor to offer extreme browsing privacy while using Social.


Complete Transparency

No misuse of the communities data or violation of users privacy. All plans of development and future enhancements will first go through the community. Social also plans to open source all projects by 2018.

Think of Social as the first community driven social network where the users own their data, not the organization.

Imagine a full decentralized social network where all data and multimedia is stored on the blockchain instead of centralized servers.


Compliant and Registered

Social is a fully compliant and registered company based in Australia. We have all legals such as terms and conditions, privacy policy and posting policy. To top it all off, we have even trademarked our slogan and logo.


Funds Distribution

All funds raised will go straight into furthering the development and security of Social.

65% of all funds raised will go directly into development and expanding the team behind Social. 10% of funds will then go towards legals to make sure Social is compliant in all countries. 5% will go into technology improvements such as upgrading servers, purchasing EV SSL certificates and much more. Another 10% will go towards marketing Social to gain awareness about the platform and gaining more users. The last 10% will be distributed to one or more private security specialist firms to make sure Social is free of any bugs and exploits.


Coin Distribution

95% of all coins are available for purchase during the ICO. A maximum of 5% of the total supply of coins will be given to promote the product via multiple forms of digital marketing and development.

Zero tokens will be distributed to the Social team, instead, we will be implementing a "buy-back" program (see below). This will highly reduce the probability of a day one exchange dump that happens to most new tokens that hit the market.

No coins are offered for bounties as all bounty payouts are in BTC.


Buy-Back Program

Instead of allocating X amount of SCL to the team during the ICO period, we will be launching a buy-back program on the exchange. This way, SCL will be purchased with BTC instead of being allocated free of charge to team members.

A total of 5% of all SCL in circulation will be purchased back during the first 24 hours of it hitting the exchange to help SCL enter a bullish trend.

NOTE: Our buy-back program completed on the 2nd of November 2017. Read more about it and the results here.


Integrated Ad Platform

Social plans to integrate a fully functional and semi automatic ad platform. The ad platform will allow users to create ads that are displayed within the news feed.

All ad spaces will cost an amount in SCL that is yet to be determined. Charges will be per impression and per click and will automatically deduct the amount in Social from the accounts web wallet.

Each ad that goes through the platform will be manually approved by Social to ensure quality.
