This week’s newsletter is all about the Seed Token:
In this video from the TokenMarket Summit 2018 in Gibraltar, Mark Stephen Meadows, SEED Co-founder and Trustee, explains why SEED is tokenizing AI and chatbots by articulating the value of our personal data to corporations that are building large predictive AI systems:
Hey, thanks for asking! Our lawyers tell us that we have to answer this question in the following way:
No public sale has been announced yet. However, if you are interested in acquiring Seed Tokens now or in the future, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
We are heads down, building the technology and infrastructure for SEED, and assembling the best people in the world to build the most trusted, open bot store on the blockchain.
There are two ways you can invest in SEED now:
Due to regulatory uncertainty in the U.S., we are unable to offer tokens to individual investors who are residents of the U.S. If you are an institutional investor, please contact us at email@example.com.
Availability in any particular state/country will depend upon the then current regulations applicable to purchase of tokens.
The SEED platform will be the premiere, global platform for deploying and licensing CUIs, components (including code), and services. It uses the Seed Token to authenticate and remunerate CUIs, developers, and users. As such, Seed Tokens are the incentive to coordinate a decentralised network of participants and are necessary for staking CUIs, components, and services, for developers and deployers. Read more about the opportunities related to the Seed Token in the SEED white paper.
Two quick use cases:
Use Case 1
Developer 1 is hired by a client to build and deploy a CUI for them. Developer 1 searches the Greenhouse DApp, finds a CUI from the bot store, licenses, customizes, and tests it, and then deploys it in a channel for the client (such as Telegram, the Web, etc.). Developer 1’s client purchases Seed Token to pay for the licensing (as well as to incentivize customers to share data). Developer 1 posts a review and rating of this bot by staking Seed Tokens.
Developer 2, who uploaded that CUI, is compensated in Seed Tokens, per the license, every time it is used. These appear in Developer 2’s wallet.
Use Case 2
Developer 3 offers CUI components and services, but not complete bots. These are uploaded to the Greenhouse DApp and the services are connected to the Greenhouse API. Developer 3 stakes these components and services in Greenhouse with Seed Tokens and sets licensing terms. Other developers licenses these components and services and pay for them via Seed Tokens.
The Seed Token will be used to power the largest, independent market of CUIs, components, and services because it offers the features and ease needed by bot developers and deployers. This independent platform will help cars, appliances, robots, and homes have a much easier interface to operate them: speaking.
