    Advantages

    A very interesting and prospective project that will provide visually rich, emotionally attractive and personalized content that pushes the industry to a new form of expressive communication. Existing content markets don't have the ability to personalize content, they are closed and stuck with outdated business models with an unfair economy for creators, consumers and developers. The project brings a new standard to this industry, transforming the existing business model into a more powerful, transparent and scalable system in different markets.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The main drawback is project's tokenization and growth linking of the entire ecosystem to the growth of its token. But the problem lies in the fact that the market dictates the price of the token, and sometimes it depends on many factors, for example, the price of bitcoin, and even if things in the project are going very well if bitcoin drops, the price of the project's token will decrease.

    Comments

    I think that in any case, this project can be interesting. It's quite relevant and it can really replace the outdated business models that have emerged at the moment in the market. No doubt that in the long term, this project will be able to bring good profits for its investors.

    Advantages

    With the current negotiations with the existing chat bots that have a large number of users will yield the project a lot of truction. There is room for modification and integration with messaging apps this will also increase market share. The future prospects of the users on the platform is up to 6 billion which is good for development in several aspects. incentives and rewards given out shall attract more people to join.

    Risks and disadvantages

    Information about the tokens that are to be locked hasn't been provided in the project description. The individuals on the team do not have experience in the field of digital currency this makes the project less profitable because they might luck relevant experience in making certain decisions and policies to benefit the project.

    Comments

    In my opinion pep is worth an investment and those that will take part in it and grow with it shall profit comfortably. Although the project receives the desired hard cap after the ICO and pre ICO it's necessary to focus on retention of the community members.

    Advantages

    There is a diverse press team that shall deliver as expected. Marketing is key and it has been catered for in the budget. A large portion has been given to the crowd sales, in this way the hard cap will be attained. The market being explored has no apparent competition and this will enable it to come up with monopoly in the market. According to the traction, success has been registered before so archiving this time will be very possible.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The advisors attached to this project have other commitments elsewhere so they can't be involved with this particular project at all times meaning that they will not be very relevant.

    Comments

    The chances of surviving in the current market are enormous for this project and this will be possible because of the relevance of the solution and the existence of a ready market to explore.

    Advantages

    The platform will provide shareable visual content which will improve user`s experience. The communication via PEP using animation will be more like face to face conversation.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The team`s share of tokens is not frozen, which doesn`t provide security for the investors.

    Comments

    It`s a good alternative to video calling. But this project needs a very strong promoting strategy in order to succeed. Since there are 30% of the budget for marketing, the project has experienced marketing specialists and the traffic is growing, I`m inclined to believe the project will succeed.

    Advantages

    Creating digital avatars for users is an interesting idea. Makert size is huge for this project. The team is in active partnership discussion with major companies.

    Risks and disadvantages

    The project needs to involve developers and creators. It is not an easy task.

    Comments

    The project already has it’s own network and many users. And probably the team already took some kind of a poll to know how many developers and creators are ready to participate in the PEP project. Or they should do it. And then investors should know this information too.

    Block Chain

    Why did you choose block chain for your project?

    Pep Network uses blockchain technology primarily for 2 use cases
    1.To achieve a transparent,commission free,peer - peer content trading between the artists & consumers. This is achieved by backing all financial transactions & content rights on ethereum blockchain.
    2.To achieve a distributed rendering network, which offers highly cost effective rendering & allows for almost infinite scale. To elaborate further, users of apps built on PEP Network allows users complete personalisation of expression. These expression needs to be recreated every time with user personalisation. This creation requires a lot of rendering & compute power. To reduce the cost of compute PEP Network will utilize all the un-utilized compute power on blockchain. Any individual or organization can share their unused compute and get compensated when they render for PEP Network.

    What information is stored in blockchain?

    1. All transactions are stored on blockchain
    2. Content ownership & license rights are managed on blockchain
    3. All information pertaining to the provider & user of compute are stored on blockchain.

    I'm afraid of a hackers attack, how secure is your system?

    During the ICO all funds are transacted using ICOBox’s secure & proven book building platform. After ICO PEP Tokens(which are ERC20/ERC223 based tokens) will be transacted over the ethereum blockchain rendering them all security features. In other words transacting in PEP Tokens will be as safe as transacting in Ethereum.

    General

    How I can buy bitcoins/ethereum?

    These are exchange services to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum. For example: The most popular cryptocurrency exchanges: https://www.coinbase.com http://www.kraken.com https://www.bitstamp.net/ Popular services for buying cryptoassets by Visa or Mastercard: https://indacoin.com/ https://cex.io/ https://www.coinmama.com/

    What exactly I will own after token purchase? A company's share?

    No. PEP token is a pure utility token and the only currency used for transactions on the PEP Network.

    What will happen if you raise more money than you need?

    Our token sale will end on two conditions
    1.Hard-cap reached
    2.Token sale date ended
    If we raise money within the hard cap limit, but exceeding our actual needs, the surplus will form the reserve fund, which will be governed by the Board of Directors.

    What are the chances that after the ICO your tokens will fall in price?

    This is something that is impossible to predict. Token price is determined by its trading volume, the success of the project, and other factors.However,our token economy has been carefully designed to create higher demand for the token.

    What are the main factors that can positively or negatively affect the value of the token in the future?

    More participants using the ecosystem on a daily basis will make PEP Network more valuable. Quality of these participants and their economic contribution will decide the future of the eco-system, which will be the key challenges to solve.

    It depends on your effort as PEP Network participant and on the situation on markets, including crypto-token secondary markets.

    What happens if you cannot reach softcap?

    We will continue the project regardless of what happens in the tokensale, we believe such a product is essential in crypto ecosystem.It means we are here to stay,not because it was all sold in the sale, but because with it you'll make successful campaigns, bounties and promotions happen. Also as we have an agreement with our advisors - ICOBox, we cannot have a soft cap.
