MindArk

DeepToken, a blockchain-powered token for Entropia Universe
and IP Exchange

The only virtual universe
with a real-cash economy, online since 2003

Advanced KYC/AML on payments, token consumption within Entropia Universe,
and new protocols for international IP licensing and exchange. Backed by MindArk’s
20 years of expertise in virtual reality development and virtual currencies

MindArk - creators of the technological platform Entropia Universe launched in 2003 - intends to undertake a token sale which will raise capital to fund and operationalize the creation of an Intellectual Property Exchange (‘IPX’). The IPX will be powered by DeepToken, also known as DTA. We are issuing 100 million tokens for purchase.

Dear DeepToken DTA holder,

MindArk has been actively developing and operating its flagship product, Entropia Universe, and continues to pave the way for virtual environments that function with true economies. Through this process of innovation, we are continually pushing the envelope of what we envision virtual worlds can become.

DeepToken

DeepToken DTA is now closed. Our decision to not offer a pre-sale for DeepToken DTA meant that the discussions and negotiations with larger investors were ongoing during the initial sale, with some investments coming in just before and after the end of the initial sale. This level of interest was promising for the DeepToken project; MindArk is now preparing for the next sale DTB, and incorporating all that it has learned will certainly help to make DeepToken a big success. The closing administration work and the distribution of the Airdrop promotion tokens are underway and will be finalized shortly.

We believe that the development of DeepToken is an important step toward elevating commerce via digital currencies and assets that will push the industry forward for businesses and individuals wishing to leverage the virtual space. Through partnerships and community support we will achieve the vision that we share with many of you.

As you may have read in our whitepaper, the first-round sale of DeepToken DTA was never intended to be the only round. During this first round, we have been grateful and impressed by the vast amount of input from our supporters, investors, and industry partners. There are always areas for improvement, and we appreciate those of you who have invested in our vision of DeepToken in its earliest stages.

As we prepare for DeepToken DTB, we wanted to inform you that due to your early adoption of our vision, we will be granting all investors an amount of complementary DeepToken (DTB) calculated on the amount you invested in our inaugural offering. All forms of DeepToken will be used in our vision, and all will carry weight in our platforms, especially for those of you who have been supportive enough to support our first sale.

After a brief period of adjustment and optimization of our systems, we will launch a six-month presale of DeepToken DTB, with additional bonuses, airdrops, bounties and incentives. This adaptation will not change the vision and goals set forth on our website and in our whitepaper. It will allow us adequate time to promote and strengthen our offering to the benefit of all stakeholders.

Thank you, and please be sure to reach out to our growing community with questions, and other
communities you believe might be a good contribution to MindArk’s vision for DeepToken.

Further information on DeepToken DTB will be posted on this website.

DeepToken in Entropia

Who is Mindark?

DeepToken Concept

mindark

Vision

MindArk, creators of the virtual reality platform Entropia Universe, created DeepToken as an extension of its vast ecosystem consisting of business developers, institutions, token holders and platform users. From the start, DeepToken holders will benefit from the connection and consumption of tokens within Entropia Universe, and through the creation of the IPX, DeepToken will have a multifaceted use.

We also plan to continue collaborating with leading-edge institutions and increase our investment into deep technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, machine learning, virtual reality (VR), augmented Reality (AR). Through the implementation of a tokenized economy and banking system functioning through smart contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain, we will create the economic, technological and social platform of the future.

This will be achieved by direct connection to a system already functioning for 15 years within the virtual Entropia Universe, which features the gradual 'micro decay' of any virtual item used within the Entropia Universe platform. We will create exciting new content and systems for our existing and future users and continue to expand our 3 million registered accounts.

MindArk will also create a global ecosystem for the exchange and sale of intellectual property and digital assets on the IPX. With plans to establish the world's first real-world bank to hold its capital in a digital currency, MindArk will be well positioned as a custodian of this ecosystem, while also pursuing additional research and development into deep technologies.

  • DeepToken holders will immediately benefit from the consumption of tokens used for transactions within Entropia Universe, which has over 3 million registered accounts; as well as over 70,000 currently available assets which will be introduced into the IPX by MindArk and existing partners.

  • DeepToken is an alternative currency for Entropia Universe users, giving DeepToken an instant real value to its holders and real savings on traditional credit card and other transaction fees.

  • The global IP market is worth an estimated $180 billion annually, but it is inefficient and inaccessible. In its token sale, MindArk will establish the world’s first Intellectual Property & Technology Exchange (IPX) to broaden access to the market and improve the mechanisms for licensing intellectual property and digital assets.

  • 2.1 million patents are filed each year globally with a commercial success rate of approximately 2%. The IPX will improve the commercial viability of IP and digital assets by making the licensing and promotional process more collaborative, more transparent, cheaper, and most importantly, easier for all parties involved.

  • DeepTokens facilitate transactions between parties on the IPX. Functioning as both the contract for licensing information and assets as well as the platform’s currency.

  • The blockchain creates an immutable record of every token and every transaction. The immutable record means transactions can be split into smaller, easily traceable, packages, completely transparently. This will allow the ‘crowdfunding’ of digital assets, where multiple parties can license assets reducing the financial barrier for entry to the market. Using ‘smart contracts’ the IPX will further simplify the process by automatically defining the price, duration and entitlements of the purchaser and compensation of the asset provider.

  • Beyond the IPX, Mindark may include subsequent raises for the MindArk Bank to strengthen the IPX as well as for Mindark’s accelerator program, which will nurture and fund the development of new IP and digital assets. These additional raises will serve as mechanisms that enable and empower for growth for existing entities and entrepreneurs, allowing them to realise the value of their assets, facilitated by DeepToken, through the IPX.

DeepTokens - Benefits

Benefits of DeepToken for token holders:

The consumption of DeepToken in the deposit and withdrawal process and in conjunction with the deterioration of Entropia Universe items will reduce the number of tokens in circulation and thereby increase the demand for and value of all remaining tokens, in line with basic economic theory. Entropia Universe platform users will find DeepTokens as a way to save money and time when performing deposit and withdrawal transactions in Entropia Universe. DeepTokens will also be required by users of the IPX, further increasing the usage of and demand for DeepToken.

Benefits of DeepToken for
Entropia Universe platform users:

  • Entropia Universe platform users will have the ability to expedite their transactions by utilizing DeepToken.
  • Use of DeepToken within the existing platform will be incentivized by reducing expenses when compared to deposits made with traditional fiat currencies.

Benefits of DeepToken for business developers:

  • Streamlined access to deep technologies.
  • Single platform for concept, development, testing and implementation.
  • Expedited processing of products/concepts allowing open market distribution at reduced costs and timelines.
  • Use of a proven product model and existing customer base.
  • Access to MindArk's ever evolving AI, VR, and AR tools.

Benefits of DeepToken for business developers:

  • Access to a user-friendly VR platform in which to test their unique concepts.
  • Ease of access to developers and assets for new product development.
  • Ability to utilize existing Entropia Universe platform users to refine their concepts and products before full-scale release.

The immense volume of social and economic activity and data already generated within the Entropia Universe platform over the last 20 years, together with AI and deep learning technologies already under development by MindArk, will facilitate major strides toward a Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), bringing us one step closer to the possibility of integrating human consciousness into our virtual universe.

DeepToken Bonuses and Incentives

MindArk decided not to offer pre-sale discounts from the beginning, as it wanted the DeepToken sale to be open and transparent, with no “behind the scenes” or murky discount deals. Instead, MindArk will offer early adopters and volume buyers of DeepToken bonuses.

Due to lots of requests for information on bonuses and volume purchases from potential investors, here is an outline of the DeepToken bonus systems.

IP Exchange/IPX

The IPX is a revolutionary platform that connects owners of digital assets and intellectual property with those seeking to access and license those assets. It will be the first ever repository of digital assets and intellectual property backed by blockchain technology and an existing profitable model that compliments its current and future ambitions. The blockchain will ensure that the exchange of assets is fast and transparent and due to its immutable nature, fraud and theft will be virtually impossible over the exchange.

IP Exchange/IPX

A brilliant technology is owned by a patent holder in Sweden.

IP Exchange/IPX

An investor from Indonesia sees an opportunity for commercialization in their local market.

IP Exchange/IPX

The IPX enables the investor to locate the technology; establish a dialogue with the patent holder; agree a license agreement through a smart contract recorded in DeepToken; and pay the monthly license fees in DeepToken.

Partnerships & Development Accelerator

MindArk will launch an accelerator program to fund developers and offer professional guidance to their teams, maximizing the value they create for themselves and a variety of development platforms.
Developers will be encouraged to monetize new assets they create through the IPX, creating opportunities for them and nurturing the platform’s growth.

FAQ

DeepToken (DTA) may be purchased with Ethereum by utilizing one of the Ether Wallets we have recommended, or with any Fiat currency (any currency that is legal tender whose value is backed by the government that issued it) by method of Credit Card of Bank Transfer.
MindArk wishes to allow equal opportunity for investment in DTA. We feel that distribution of DTA in discounted pre-sales or air-drops devalues the investments of those supporting MindArks vision.
Currently DeepToken is exclusively available for purchase through deeptoken.io
As with any investment, it is important to do your own research into why you would/should invest. With nearly two decades of experience in managing virtual currencies and complex asset structures, MindArk and their advisors are confident that the implementation of DeepToken and its use on the IPX will be a successful endeavor that plays to the strengths of our team. Though, the responsibility of choosing to invest remains with you being the judge of our offering and how much you wish to invest based on what we have presented.
All Fiat (government backed) currencies and Ethereum.
Mindark does not need to do a token sale, MindArk has chosen to do so after investigating Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies for three years and resolving that this is the next logical step in their evolution.
An ICO or Token sale is when a project utilizing either existing blockchain technology, or adapting an existing technology to their own needs, offers a “Token” in exchange for fiat or crypto currencies.
The initial value of one DTA will be equal to one US Dollar. (1DTA=1USD) This value will be set at the release of DTA’s sale and will be tied to Ethereum from that point forward. Market fluctuation between USD and ETH will be the only market variability.
Your information will only be shared with MindArk or partners directly associated with the initial sale of DeepToken. Your information will not be shared with any third parties that do not require access in order to ensure your investments are processed and securely registered.
Your initial investment will be held securely within MindArks servers, which have protected virtual assets worth hundreds of millions of USD for nearly two decades. Once you have transferred your DTA to your own wallet, please be sure to use the wallets we have recommended and be diligent about your online security and phishing attempts.

Funds collected through the sale of DTA will be used for the Following:

  • Development of the IPX including Entropia Universe Development 50 %
  • Marketing and PR 25 %
  • Business Development (B2B) 5 %
  • Legal and Regulatory 5 %
  • Token Offering Costs (Advisors and Enablers) 10 %
  • Contingency Fund 5 %
MindArk intends to ensure all regulations have been adhered to before releasing DTA to the open market should this course of action be in the best interest of the project and it’s investors.
The DeepToken sale is not intended just to raise capital. DTA will fuel the IP & Tech Exchange and expedite evolution of MindArk’s vision. Those that choose to invest in DeepToken will already have the currency necessary to participate in the IPX and Accelerator programs as early adopters.
To invest with Ethereum or Credit Card you must purchase a minimum of one DTA, beyond this, should you choose to invest with a Bank Transfer, you will need to invest a minimum of $10 or equivalent in SEK, GBP or EUR.
There is no Soft Cap on the DeepToken Initial Offering, there is only a Hard Cap of $100 Million.
No, in order to ensure a smooth token sale, MindArk has elected to keep the same purchasing options for both Entropia Universe customers, and new investors.
DTA will be reserved for your account as soon as your credit card transaction has processed. DTA will be released to your designated wallet after a holding period to avoid chargebacks resulting in devaluation of DTA for true investors.
  • DeepTokens are single utility tokens that act as a method for transacting between buyer and seller within the Entropia Universe, and record the agreement made between the two parties as a publicly available smart contract.
  • DeepTokens enable the exchange of intellectual property through the IPX.
  • The DeepToken will perform three functions: i.DeepToken will be used initially in existing MindArk projects to improve KYC/AML and expedite fiat - virtual - fiat currency transfer.
  • It will safely facilitate the licensing of IP and digital assets through smart contracts within the IPX and act as the medium of exchange on the IPX.
  • It will act as a recording of all contractual information between IP holder and IPuser, using smart contracts on the blockchain.
MindArk specialises in Deep Tech – the technology that is based on tangible engineering innovation or scientific advances and discoveries. Based on everything we have achieved to date in this field and look to realise, it was only fitting that our Token be named accordingly.
Early adopters of DeepToken will already possess the currency necessary to participate in the IPX and Accelerator programs.
MindArk does not wish to speculate on the potential future value of DeepToken.
Yes, MindArks vision will require an ongoing evolution of DeepToken and its functionality for many years.
The open market will determine the value of DeepToken.
DeepToken will facilitate transfer of currency and smart contracts for both IP and asset producers as well as those wishing to license content from the exchange.
Details on recommended wallets through MetaMask and MyEtherWallet are located HERE.
Transaction fees are fixed to the Ethereum Network as DTA is an ERC20 token. At the time of writing this answer, transfer fees should be less than 50,000 gas units.
DeepTokens are owned by whoever possesses them.
Initially DeepToken will not have its own wallet. MindArk recognizes the volume of effort required to create a secure and effective wallet in which to store your currencies. As there are already a variety of highly secure wallets in which to store DeepToken, our focus is on the implementation of DTA, the IPX, and the Accelerator.
Details on recommended wallets through MetaMask and MyEtherWallet are located in links available to you after you have registered.

A token is a digital asset created on a blockchain. The number of tokens in circulation, the date of creation, all token transactions and any future token generation can be audited and verified in real-time by anyone in the world. This guarantees the security of the token supply and prevents any fraud.
  • Smart contracts are essentially programmatic representations of a business process. They hold rules and actions that are executed when certain prerequisites are met and has an address like a blockchain wallet.
  • In MindArk’s case, the initial smart contract will fully mine an ERC-20 token, called DeepToken A (DTA).
  • DTA smart contracts will implement whitelisting mechanisms – which remain under the control of MindArk – such that the digital smart contract can reject Ether and DTA coming from non-whitelisted addresses.
  • The smart contract is published and stored immutably and publicly in the blockchain. It can be audited by anyone.
  • The blockchain is like a globally accessible, decentralized spreadsheet.
  • It keeps track of who sent how many coins to whom, and what the respective balances of each address.
  • This information is stored and maintained by thousands of people (miners) across the globe who have specialized computers. It does not depend on any single entity, company or government. It is audited in real time by all network participants to prevent any risk of manipulation.
  • The blocks in the blockchain are made up of all the individual transactions sent from MetaMask, MyEtherWallet, Exodus, Mist, Geth, Parity, and everywhere else.
  • An Initial Coin Offering, also commonly referred to as an ICO, is a fundraising mechanism in which new projects sell their underlying digital assets in exchange for other digital assets or traditional currencies. Investors in an ICO do so in the hope that the digital assets, or coins, will rise in value, like Ethereum has done since its ICO in an impressive way.
  • During a Token sale (also known as a Token Generation Event), in contrast, participants are making charitable contributions towards a cause they believe in. Tokens are generated by the blockchain system after the fundraiser and are not provided by the foundation or old as part of the fundraiser. A Token sale is when a project utilizing either existing blockchain technology, or adapting an existing technology to their own needs, offers a “Token” in exchange for fiat or crypto currencies.
The smart contract is published and stored immutably and publicly in the blockchain. It can be audited by anyone.
Ethereum is the most popular platform for tokens creation. It has a dynamic ecosystem evolving very rapidly to offer the best smart contracts features. There is wide support for the technology in many wallets, exchanges in a large number of countries all over the world, and a multitude of development tools as well as the biggest smart contracts developers community to date.
ERC20 is an Ethereum technical standard for smart contracts tokens. It facilitates defining, creating and interacting with tokens. ERC20 tokens implement security best practices, are supported by a wide number of wallets and exchanges and are easy to use in smart contracts.
All DeepTokens issued for the token sale that will not be sold by the end of the sale, will be destroyed. This guarantees that the number of tokens sold will be 80% of the total supply, independently of how many tokens are sold.
No. All DeepTokens will be mined at the creation of the smart contract and it will never be possible to create any new DeepToken.
Fiat is money issued and controlled by governments. Cryptocurrency is issued on a blockchain using a decentralized system operated by independent parties.
MindArk plans to list all of its 70,000 assets as well as the assets of a number of partners.
The Entropia IP & Tech Exchange is an online platform where content creators and content users can meet and easily and securely trade digital assets, especially virtual reality objects. The market for trading virtual reality intellectual property objects is estimated to 180 billion USD in 2017.
All individuals and corporations from anywhere in the world who pass the IP & Tech Exchange KYC & AML checks.
If you have registered to invest in DeepToken you will be contacted once the IPX is ready for release. General publications will also be released to promote the launch of the IPX where you will be able to create and account and submit for approval of activity within the exchange.
Yes, however, additional options once the IPX and the MindArk Bank have been fully developed may allow you to utilize DTA by lending it from the bank for utilization on the IPX.
The IPX will be operational for public use in 2019.
No, in order to ensure a smooth token sale, MindArk has elected to keep the same purchasing options for both Entropia Universe customers, and new investors.
Yes, the historical exchange rate of USD to PED for Entropia Universe players will still be available.
Yes, players will have the ability to deposit DTA for PED and withdraw PED for DTA.
Once the IPX and MindArk Bank have been established, use of DTA in the webshop and in association with the Entropia Universe will be reviewed and implemented where appropriate.
Yes, DTA will be used to help facilitate the IPX and Accellerator projects initially. Future and past projects will be reviewed to determine if this will be the best course of action on a case by case basis.
DTA will help to expedite speed and cost of transactions both in and out of the Entropia Universe. As the IPX and accelerator come online, this will help to expedite growth of the platform. The percentage of the raise used for direct development of the Entropia Universe, will increase the usage of DTA and add to the current volume of assets available on the IPX. More details are available within the white paper and will evolve after the core benchmarks of the roadmap have been met.
DTA will not initially be available for use within the Entropia Universe, as government regulations become more clear on cryptocurrencies, MindArk will review the potential of utilizing DTA within the Entropia Universe further and implement systems to benefit participants.
