OPP Open WiFi: Community driven service
Aiming to create global, free to access open WiFi hotspot network & reward each contributor for being part of the cause
Entrepreneur & CEO
Martin’s preferred modus operandi is to champion causes that he believes in. Hes does not describe his career as a career but as a way of life!
In the 1990’s, long before Bitcoin and block chain changed the world the UK government de-centralised and privatised the supply energy and telecoms in the UK. This was hugely important to Martin. The opportunity to present small business and households with the ability to choose became not only a clarion call for Martin but with much determination and focus he was instrumental in how this “disruption” took place. Martin built a team around him that became one of the premier energy and telecoms brokers in the UK.
Subsequently Martin has built business opportunity around changing peoples views about serving the access needs of the disabled community. Here he was able to use his motivational and organisational skills to build a committed sales team that went in to the streets and influenced peoples thinking
OPP OPEN WIFI had been a torch held by Martin for several years. Being a seasoned business traveller and carrying every communication gadget known to man Martin has been frustrated by the inconvenience of not being plugged in to the web when out and about for many many years. Martins dream of creating a free and open global wifi hotspot has been incubating for more than half a decade. Now block chain, smart contracts and crypto make it possible to bring his vision to life.
Enzo Ferarri on describing his skills once said “I am not a designer (of racing cars), I am an agitator of men”. It is this vision, leadership and communication skill which makes Martin the agitator that we need to build our Global Wifi Network!

A part of advertising revenue will be used to buy back OPP tokens from exchanges, and creating shortages is a good way to increase token's value. There are several publications in press, bounty program will be launched in July 2018.
Risks and disadvantages
The team and advisers have no tokens at all and this is quite strange for me. I think distribution of tokens is quiestionable.
This is an attractive project, but I think the team should present their plan of retaining investors after the end of ICO campaign. If ICO-participants will be interested in making long-term investments it will bring stability on the market, which is a good condition for developing of the project.
The application will be available for free download since September 2018. The total number of tokens is limited. So if the project achieves the goals and there are millions of hosts, the demand for tokens will grow.
Risks and disadvantages
Offering bonuses up to 50% during Pre-ICO is an effective way to attract investments, at the same time it may lead to speculations when the token is available on exchanges.
The Whitepaper contains the results of the survey of 100 000 consumers, which shows that there is an interest to the product. I also support this idea. Though competition is intense in this sphere.
