OYG’s platform offers income opportunities for individuals and communities.
Communities* may use the platform to aggregate purchasing power, organize group health insurance and bring local products to the global marketplace.
Communities are geographically defined but their own residents and boundaries may be self-identified by consensus using the platform.
The OYG marketing plan targets 30 to 100 million discrete users in 2,000 communities in three years, generating $59M recurring annual revenue.
The decentralized architecture of OYG can scale to meet demand with great precision.
OYG may exceed growth rates seen in the early years of social media since it is launched into a maket that is already familiar with earlier uses of similar technology. OYG also scales in two ways: by adding communities and by adding new subscribers after platforms are launched.
OYG delivers more value for less costs than SaaS apps that offer professional services or advertising and OYG can easily localize and roll out new features.
Based on costs of servers and bandwidth at current rates, OYG can license a community of 15,000 residents for $3,750, per year, equal to a fee of $0.75 (seventy-five cents) per active participant.
Users may pay a microfee of $0.12 added to the monthly energy or internet service bill. Alternatively, public agencies, companies or other organizations may sponsor a community network. Revenue projections view sponsorship as a separate revenue source. Income from financial services, content publication and research have not been projected.
Ultimately, OYG derives revenue from the following sources:
1. Individual Community Members: may pay a micro-fee (pennies per month) on their internet or other utility bill. Many communities may not want to be completely independent and autonomous.
2. Individual Community Organizations: may license OYG for their entire community for a flat annual fee of $3,750 for up to 15,000 residents (assuming 5000 active daily users). This fee increases for each additional 1000 daily users.
3. Public agencies (cities, counties, etc.): may sponsor licenses for their communities. A city of 150,000 people will typically have 10 or more community councils that would receive a license.
4. Public/Private Utilities: Including Bandwidth or energy providers or other companies may sponsor licenses for communities they serve.
5. Nonprofit, Foundations & NGOs: Local, regional, national and international organizations, whose mission it is to serve the needs of populations and communities, or to address environmental concerns.
6. Financial Services: OYG’s blockchain supported network can offer access to crypto markets. In association with institutional lenders, competitive mortgage and business loans may be offered. The beta project may pilot a community equity program for access to loans for business that cannot tap traditional funding sources.
7. Research Contracts: Corporate, academic or government programs that want a bonafide source of information about cultural or commercial preferences, and whom are willing to cooperate with OYG’s non-interference policies may offer opportunities to communities to participate in research. For example, a candidate for office may want to learn about needs and wishes directly from a community,
Government, Non-profit and Corporate Sponsors
OYG taps into an existing market of governments and corporations seeking customer retention and brand recognition. OYG argues they can achieve greater value by listening to clients, than by advertising.
