Project Description

Sphere Network is a next-generation decentralized Social Media network.

The problem with social media juggernauts today is that your online activity, data, and privacy belong to them - and they freely sell it all to the highest bidder. The problem with centralized servers is that their stores of sensitive data are vulnerable to hacking. In their place, we are creating Sphere, a more transparent, honest, and open blockchain network.

Sphere is built on the main principles of privacy and security as an irrefutable right, giving users protection, security, and peace of mind.

Sphere Social Offers:

  • The established product that can be found on the internet, as well as Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Shere social currently has 600,000 registered users and the number is increasing.

  • The strategic plan that puts their users and token holders first.

  • The segregated cloud server environment that is safeguarded using cutting- edge security systems.

  • The superior user experience and superior customer support for the users in Sphere ecosystem.

  • Anonymous transactions globally. Everything is done using digital currency.

  • AD Platform. Sphere has plans for creating a fully functional advertising portal. The advertising portal will allow users to create ad pieces that will be displayed in the Sphere news feed.

  • The safeguard of users privacy and avoid the misuse of community data.






Market and Industry Review

The social media market has experienced a continuing growth trend in the last decade. Social networks are starting to play an increasingly important role in marketing every year. Users are happy to learn the content in social networks and share it with their friends.

According to Pew Research Center, in the period from 2005 to 2018 the social media market showed active growth from 5% active world users in 2005 to 65% active world users in 2018:



Active growth is also evident in other segments related to the social media market. According to a Pew Research Center report, an increase in the number of social media has become key factor for the rapid growth of the internet advertising. The market share of the Internet advertising has increased by 25% over the last 5 years. This year Internet advertising is expected to grow by 7% thanks to social media market.




Competitor Analysis

The social media sector has a large number of social networking companies such as:

Facebook - is an American online social media and social networking service company

Currently, the main advantages of this platform are:

  • 14 years operating in the market

  • 2.2 billion monthly active users

  • Most popular social media in the world


LinkedIn -  is a business- and employment-oriented social networking service

  • 14 years operating in the market

  • 530 million members total

  • Most popular social media for professionals


There are also other social networks like YouTube,  Google+, Twitter. Each social network has its own characteristics. They prefer users of different sex, different ages and different nationalities.

Sphere Social has the following advantages over competitors:

  • Full decentralization

  • Instant confirmation of transactions is implemented on the basis of Ethereum Virtual Machine

  • The possibility of receiving remuneration for SAT tokens for any confirmed action

  • Full anonymity of users

  • The ability to create decentralized applications and smart contracts


 

We think that the combination of current growth in the social media market and the advantages listed above will allow the project to occupy its niche in the market.

Development plans and roadmap

Sphere Social has a balanced strategy for entering the market. Currently, cryptocurrency is legal in a large number of developed countries and the company's roadmap has been developed taking into account the current situation. It will be adapted in accordance with changes in legislation in countries in whose territories the project will be active.




Investment Risks

The rate for 1 SAT is tied to ETH during the token sale. Given the high volatility of cryptocurrency, this creates an additional risk for fiat investors, since in the case of an increase in ETH rates, the price of 1 token in fiat increases.

There is also an economic risk, as Sphere does not disclose financial indicators and forecasts.

The global marketing strategy has not been published; for this reason, the project is  also in the risk zone and current investors will not be able to obtain a clear idea about future product promotion.
