To: OPTIN supporters,

We are very sorry that we will have to re-schedule the ICO. Due to recent information from the SEC, ERC-20 tokens are almost definitely security tokens, with no such thing as a “utility token”. Instead of trying to squeeze by, and put the business at-risk, we are going to change our offering to a security token, where buyers can receive actual equity ownership in the DoGood Media companies, similar to stocks traded on the OTC exchanges.
We are still continuing all parts of the project as listed in our white paper.
1. OPTIN holders can purchase advertising on our ad platform. We are also going to open this to commercial advertisers in 2018.
2. The OPTIN Chrome plug-in has been released, and OPTIN holders will receive a bonus for data from the plug-in.
3. EarnHoney users (and our publishing partners) will all receive OPTIN that is fully backed by fiat.
4. We intend to list OPTIN on a exchange in the coming months, possibly tZero and OpenFinance security token exchanges.

The OPTin Advertising system is currently used by 500,000 users

It is compatible with the current ad ecosystem and is already being used to purchase millions of dollars of advertising.

Watch the video for a quick introduction.
