"Three ha ha right so if you use the private currency that is the b token no commissions but if you use a goal decrypt oh then it's one percent is that right yes exactly gay then ingesting very interesting so there is an incentive to buy the beeto can pay with that currency straightaway right as a way of bolstering demand for yes okay so that's that's one used for the radio that uses were in the ecosystem there's a few so the other part is sponsored listings so you can think of this like a elp business model which if you want to promote your listing higher up the relevant search or even perhaps the front page league impatient itokin okay that's a good one guys one so that some demand coming from a different actor in the ecosystem so the knows now there's no is it that still coming from the vendor safe the vendor wants to avoid the transaction fee they can why accept payment in the beat ochun whereas effects that payment him the theory of its one percent so am i right with that is there is reason to for the user to use the veto could right so for the on the guest of the host or you're talking about sponsored the sides rate the key is home yet guest in host so the guest is the peasant books themselves and so if they're the ones is going to inc uh the one percent transaction fees if they pay with the corner theory uh yes said us their incentive to pay wouldbe took its culture than if we swap over to the host side that's where the old aspect comes into it that their incentive is to by be tokens in order to uh basically increase the visibility of their property in the listings the us exactly how get good getting it right in my mind right so now got two groups of act as an ecosystem the guests who would by the b token because they want to avoid a onepercent fee and then the hosts would uh by the b token to spend for advertising on the platform basically so okay thus clear simple unlikely so fawzi's to work very very well um that's cool have un another.

"Bull firstmover advantage and then the fat perfect lodgings attracts competitors who are willing to do it for slightly lesson slightly less and then gradually the um the amount competition means it turns into a commodity almost and then the margins are worse than as they can be almost two sometimes just above cost sometimes so that's not specific to uber is it as more of a general lord economics oh absolutely and i think that's why block she technology is so is is is so powerful not only the technological level but the fundamental level because when he tokenism economy and then you give initially connery all actors on the economy tokens that you properly incentivizing everyone on the network ray because then the founders of be ceased to have their tokens but that labour driver or the airbnb host or the guests they have their tokens as well okay so this is where the biggest gap his in my understanding about be so complex the spend time talking about the token itself because that's the bit you've just been talking about as being the key factor in making sure all these centres are aligned and make sure everyone gets a core of the value in the ecosystem so what's what's the token four right it's the b token right so how's it going to be used in ecosystem right so we adopted models so very similar to finance exchange invite other shades of the popular shane jr where you can trade year out coins for each other but if you use a finance spoke in the late cut your transaction fees in half wracked and so that's the same way we're using be token if used biko kid on our platform for decentralised home sherry than we don't charge any commission at all but then if you've corner diem that we try to wanted to present convenience.

"Also among from so do not want to give your if say second overview of how you how you pitched the idea to people who have never had before yeah i so essentially be token is a decentralized airbnb and airbnb the classic middlemen that can be decentralised so the two value propositions that come with that is first there is the traditional problem that traditional companies as they grown valuation all of that appreciation is captured by only dislike few the founders in of ici's so i use mujber for example it the uber has grown from zero to seventy billion in less than a decade but the uber drivers who basically create the ecosystem make less and less per year they started with like forty and other may ten as though it's clear that the hole in its ecosystem is not aligned but then issued token is the economy and everyone has tokens than as a network increases every one basically woods so that's the first part okay and then the second part is a no commissions so you essentially move the middlemen and you take the 15 to 20 per se commissioned reduce at two zero no kidding okay less pretty good what are the best resources you sent me was this you called a pitch deck is like a presentation of twenty two pages on each page has a specific a goal in mind to communicate something specific about the project or benefit or feature or whatever right and you touched on two big ones that which will get too but is that right will you to set the about every year sane uber driver for example makes a smaller and smaller cooked is is actually has gone down it's essentially the case because they're saturation of the market so of course when the there's not enough supply or demand in the market than the company will have leads at devised to do so but once it becomes more mainstream than actually the early adopters suffer bit because there's a lot more people that can replace him or her do his or her job so let's isn't that just distended lord economics that right when when a amok is new and fresh it's like big fat margins most profits.
