Hi everyone,

A few days ago, I gave you an update on the empowr coin.

I promised I would keep you posted on the ever-changing cryptocurrency landscape and empowr’s market entry details.


  1. Let’s share the empowr announcement (press release) with you before anyone else
  2. Next, let’s give you first access to the empowr whitepaper
  3. Then, I’ll explain what may not be immediately clear
  4. And finally, let’s take your questions to make sure everything is even more clear


Let’s get started.

1.  Here’s the press release that’s going out on the news wire tomorrow:

Inventor of Virtual Currency Pays It Forward with Record-Breaking Airdrop

100 percent of initial coin supply to be delivered to the people for free beginning on Tax Day, April 15

SAN DIEGO – March 21, 2018 empowr, the inventor of virtual currency, announces a coin distribution event unlike any other. Starting on April 15, 2018, empowr will distribute 500 million coins, which is the company’s entire initial supply, through an airdrop on the Ethereum blockchain and a bounty program. Starting on March 22, empowr founders and democratically elected president will appear in a weekly live stream on YouTube to discuss the historic event and answer the community’s questions. 

“Airdropping our entire initial supply of coins is fully aligned with our core beliefs, which is putting the power back into the people’s hands,” said Brian Woosley, the democratically elected president of empowr. “Without accepting a single penny from corporate investors and advertisers, the empowr platform was built by sacrifice and dedication by generations of users. It is with that same spirit that the community has voted to now pay it forward to the crypto community – on a day where they’re spending money rather than earning it – Tax Day.”

The community’s 800,000 active alpha users are already earning by posting and sharing content; selling and sharing goods and services; or helping others do the same.

Users can spend coins in the platform’s robust marketplace and on advertising, subscription and other services provided by empowr.

The empowr community invites supporters to become holders of the empowr coin:

  • Active Ethereum blockchain wallets will receive the empowr coin airdrop beginning Sunday, April 15, 2018
  • Each month, empowr will distribute 10 million coins through its Bounty Program. Those interested in earning stakes can find more information here

For questions, watch the weekly live stream on YouTube, starting on Thursday, March 22 at 8 am PDT (3pm UTC).

For the official live stream schedule, visit later today.


2.   The empowr whitepaper

In cryptocurrency ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), the main document that details everything about the opportunity, is called the whitepaper.

Here’s the empowr whitepaper for you to read through.


3.  Some questions and answers to make things more clear.

Question: Why does the announcement and whitepaper mention 500 millions coins, when the empowr community is being provided with a larger number of coins ( = 1 billion coins)?

Answer: 500 million coins is the initial circulating supply. That’s the number that we’ll start with on April 15.  Then, starting 2 weeks later (May 1st) each month a shrinking number of coins will be made available to the empowr marketing and compensation engine, which is the source of your coins.

As a reminder, all the coins that are going to the community (empowr citizens, success coaches, advisers and employees) ...

...  in addition to all the coins going to empowr (to use for marketing, user acquisition, posting & sharing and the mission wheel) ...

... are all vesting (distributed) at a rate of 1 percent monthly.

All the coins going to the community will begin to vest (become available) in May, which is coming from the non-initial supply.

Hopefully this is clear but let me know if it isn’t and I’ll help you understand.


Question:  The press release and whitepaper talk about an “airdrop.”  What is an airdrop?

Answer:  An airdrop is a very interesting marketing approach that’s unique to the crypto space. I’ll explain.

The blockchain is completely transparent – everyone can see all the accounts that exist and can even see how much currency each account owns.

Note: People cannot see the names of the account holders, just the account number – called wallet addresses – plus, they can see the amount of currency held by each account (wallet).

So, yes, we can see all see the account numbers and which accounts are “real” – meaning which hold some currency – as opposed to wallets that merely exist but don’t have any currency.

So, an airdrop is the process of actually sending a small amount of coins into ALL the “real” accounts on the blockchain.

Wait! Why on earth would anyone want to send free coins to people they don’t even know?

Well, when the owner of the wallet receives these new coins, he or she is tempted to say:  “What a nice surprise! Someone sent me some coins! I wonder what these coins are all about?!”

They then often take it upon themselves to learn more about the new coin and the company behind it.

Thus, by distributing coins – “airdropping” them into all the “real” wallets on the blockchain – we have an opportunity to reach out and wake up many crypto enthusiasts that have already, educated themselves about cryptocurrency and have a much higher chance of becoming interested in new coins like ours.

Think of airdropping as an incredibly well-targeted marketing approach that reaches the precise people we most want to reach – those most likely to be interested in our coins – those that already own cryptocurrency.


Question:  Will I receive an airdrop too?

Answer:  Yes, if you have an Ethereum wallet that has a bit of currency in it.


Question:  What is Ethereum?

Answer:  It’s the leading blockchain operating system. Think of it as the Microsoft Windows operating system for blockchain.

People and companies can build applications (called “smart contracts”) and tokens (also known as cryptocurrency or “coins”) on top of Ethereum.

Ethereum makes it easier and faster to get coins live because many other companies have already created technologies like “crypto wallets” and “currency exchanges” that we won’t necessarily need to build ourselves.


Question:  Wait. We worked hard and/or paid good money for our coins. How is it fair that random strangers get coins for free?

Answer:  Airdrop recipients only receive a small number of coins. If or when they want more, they must purchase them, most likely through a currency exchange.

An airdrop is a cost-effective way – cheaper than buying advertising – to reach a large audience...

... the exact crypto people that we’ll need to ensure our coins will have lots of buyers and sellers...

... which (as you may remember) is what we need to get listed on the large currency exchanges.


Question:  Is there a cost to conducting an airdrop?

Answer:  Yes.  For each transaction -- each wallet we send coins to – empowr must pay a transaction fee. 

An airdrop can be quite costly because we’re looking to send a small amount of coins into a very large number of wallets – in order to wake a lot of people up.


Question:  What’s a bounty program?

Answer:  When a company does an ICO, along with an airdrop they often launch the ability for people in the crypto world to earn some coins for promoting the new coin. That’s called a bounty program.

For example, people can create videos or articles about empowr.

Or they can translate the empowr whitepaper (or any of our videos) to their local language.

There are several other promotional tasks they can do to earn coins. 


Question:  Does empowr have a bounty program?

Answer:  empowr’s bounty program officially launches later today, but you already received access before anyone else:  Bounty link


Question:  Why is the official airdrop on April 15? Why not before that?

Answer:  That date gives us some time to grow the number of bounty program participants and allow them to do their work in promoting empowr to the larger crypto community.


Question:  When will empowr’s coins be live on the currency exchanges? Do we need to wait for the airdrop to happen?

Answer:  We’ll be live as soon as possible. We have already started the process of reaching out to many exchanges. We will not wait for the airdrop to be live.


Question:  Along with getting coins for free (by airdrop) or by earning them by bounty, can people buy empowr coins?

Answer:  Yes, empowr is privately reaching out to many larger crypto investors. Their price is $1 per coin but can be higher or lower depending on negotiable terms such as how long of a lock-up (vesting period) they're willing to accept -- to ensure they’re not “pumping and dumping” – meaning buying coins just to turn around and sell them for a quick profit.


Question:  What about smaller coin buyers? For example, can empowr citizens buy coins?

Answer:  Yes, empowr alpha users will be able to buy up to $5,000 USD of coins at a great discount -- 10 cents per coin. 

As you may have read in the last blog post, founding empowr citizens have been able to get an additional 50 percent more coins for free, for a final price of 6.67 cents per coin.


Question:  What about doing a public ICO?

Answer:  Rather than do a large, public ICO, empowr will be doing a private ICO sale instead (as detailed above).

Based on your feedback, it’s clear that getting on the exchanges as quickly as possible should be our primary objective. If empowr were to conduct a traditional ICO, our ability to get on the exchanges might be delayed by 60 or more days.

Rather than wait, we're now thinking that the best approach would be to get as much attention to the coin as possible (via the airdrop and bounty program) while working to quickly get on one or more exchanges so everyone can buy and sell as many coins as they wish.


4.  And finally...

We’re sure you may have questions that are not listed above. That’s why we’re inviting you to our first-ever live stream Q&A on YouTube! Meet me and one or more empowr founders in a live Q&A session.

It will take place on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 8 am PDT (3 pm UTC).

Exact instruction will be posted right here in the next 24 hours (instead of this line) as well as on our other social media channels:

Discord App:

Lastly, I encourage everyone to read the whitepaper. It’s always good to get a refresher on where we’re trying to go and the progress we’ve made thus far.

Any questions?

We’re here for you. I also look forward to seeing you on the live stream!


Your president,


My fellow empowrians,

As you may remember, when the empowr community decided to move forward with launching the empowr coin, the empowr engineering team provided an estimate of March 2018, as to when it would have everything ready to go.

Well, It’s March -- and time to get everyone up-to-date on:

1.  The state of the empowr cryptocurrency

2.  The empowr platform’s readiness for infusion of the empowr coin

3.  The cryptocurrency market, industry and landscape

4.  The empowr Initial Coin Offering (ICO)

5.  The empowr founder coin giveaway and auction

6.  How can you help and earn more coins?


Let’s get started.



1.  The state of the empowr cryptocurrency

The cryptocurrency is coded and can now be launched upon request from empowr’s management.



2.  The empowr platform’s readiness for infusion of the empowr coin

As you’ve been noticing (on the empowr website as well as through a variety of community announcements) the entire empowr product, including the marketplace, balance, maturation, mission wheel, success coach program – everything – the entire product suite -- has been re-designed and re-engineered to work with the new empowr cryptocurrency coin.

I’m sure there are, and there will be issues, bugs, opportunities and missing functionality. 

And of course, as we always have, together we’ll knock down the issues and bugs – and chase the opportunities and missing features – one after another – until we’re where we want to be.

Today, empowr citizens are already:

A.  Earning pre-coins from their posting and sharing

B.  Having their pre-coins converted into coins by spinning the mission wheel

C.  Earning coins directly from their product and service sales

D.  Having their coins mature, with maturation different for each individual based on their power level, overall 30-day mission points, and how many months in-a-row they hit their personal performance goal

E.  Able to spend their coins that are not mature in the marketplace.


In addition:


F.  Success Coaches are being compensated with pre-coins, with 30% being converted to coins

G.  empowr citizens are earning coins when their invitees (people they invited to empowr) become productive (meaning they’ve earned 100 mission points) and even when their invitees earn coins

H.  And as of March 1 , as recently reported, empowr countries will be earning coins based on their ability to educate their citizens and help them become successful and productive



Summary of engineering efforts

The empowr engineering team has done their part to ensure the empowr coin is ready for launch on the blockchain, and the empowr platform is working with the empowr cryptocurrency coin.

I commend them for completing this massive effort on-time.

Exchanging your coins

The next major step is to enable you to take your mature empowr coins to a currency exchange, so you can convert them to other currencies.

In order to discuss the details around currency exchanges, we’ll need to discuss the rapidly evolving state of the crypto industry.


3.  The cryptocurrency market, industry and landscape

As many of you have been witnessing, the cryptocurrency environment is changing by the week – even sometimes by the day.

Almost every day a new announcement comes out from the governments of many countries – with the price of all coins shooting up or down based on the news being perceived as “good” or “bad.”

Some of the highlights:

·         Lots of new coins have been launched in the last couple of months

Almost all of them are for projects that have no product built yet.

The landscape has become littered with hundreds of new coins.

·         The regulatory landscape is rapidly changing

The governments of China, USA, South Korea, Singapore, Japan, Russia, Canada, Switzerland, India and many other countries have been making various statements about cryptocurrencies, and whether or not they should be legal.

The lack of certainty they are creating, is generating a lot of confusion and fear for companies looking to launch an ICO (Initial Coin Offering).

·         The price of coins have remained very volatile

The price of all coins, starting with bitcoin, have been moving up and down very rapidly – based on the news coming out daily.

During the last 90 days, the price of bitcoin has risen to as high as $20,000 and dropped to as low as $6,000. Today, it’s just over $8,000.

·         The currency exchanges are feeling pressure and opportunity


The bad news for currency exchanges:

Some countries have outlawed cryptocurrencies.

But those counties have had a hard time stopping the cryptocurrencies, as many of them are offshore and run by companies that are relatively decentralized and difficult to stop.

Given the difficulty those governments have had stopping the cryptocurrencies, they have decided instead to go after the currency exchanges.

In the last few months, cryptocurrency exchanges have been outlawed and shut down in China, South Korea and a few other countries that, just a few months ago, were among the leading cryptocurrency markets.


The good news for currency exchanges:

Many exchanges have found a way to stay alive – by innovating or by moving to crypto-friendly countries.

Today, there are a smaller number of exchanges, with an exploding number of different coins asking to get listed.

This large influx of new coins means that the exchanges have had to become picky, as they cannot list every new coin that asks to be on their exchange.


So, how are the exchanges deciding which new coins to support?

Two ways:

A.  The companies that will give them lots of money up front

Now, top exchanges are asking for money up front – some up to millions of dollars – simply for the opportunity to be listed on their exchange.

Some of the companies can afford to give them this money. Which companies? The ones that did a successful ICO – and have raised millions.

Why would any company pay the exchanges millions up front?

Because if they do not – if they don’t get on the top exchanges (where lots of people have wallets and lots of trades are taking place) their coins might have less value.

Does this make sense? If no one can buy or sell a coin, there will be much less demand for it, which lowers its value.

As you can see, suddenly (because many of the exchanges have been shut down – and many new coins are coming out) the remaining exchanges have quickly become important players in the rapidly evolving cryptocurrency landscape.


OK, so, as a reminder, we’re talking about how the exchanges decide which coins to support.

We mentioned that they are deciding that in two (2) ways – the first being to charge a lot of money up front.

So, what’s the second way?


B.  They attempt to predict which coins will have lots of trades

Exchanges make money every time someone buys or sells a coin, by charging a transaction fee.

So, if a coin appears (to the people that are running the exchanges) like it will have a lot of buyers and sellers, the top exchanges might make an exception and charge them less – or even nothing – up front for “the opportunity to be listed on their exchange.”

But, given that most coins don’t even have a product yet... they are simply raising money using an ICO so that they can then get started building the product....

... how can the exchanges attempt to figure out which coins will eventually be very successful (and have lots of trades)?

The answer is:  Based on the strength – or weakness – of their ICO.

In other words, the exchanges look at the strength of the coin’s ICO (how much money was raised) to decide which coins will have lots of trades in the future.


So, what does all of this mean for the empowr coin?

Here’s our opinion, given the best information available to us at this moment:

This new landscape (where exchanges are becoming important) suggests that empowr should probably conduct an ICO – as opposed to simply opening our coin on the blockchain, which we are ready to do.

Why? Because for our coin to be very successful, it needs to be available for buying and selling, on the top exchanges.

To be on the top exchanges, we need to either:

A) Pay lots of money to top exchanges

The best way for empowr to get lots of money, is through an ICO.




B) Show exchanges that we’ve had a very successful ICO –lots of coins were sold in an ICO -- hence lots of coins will be making their way to the exchanges for trade. 

Based on recent events, where the currency exchanges are becoming super important players in the industry –both options (A and B) are pushing empowr to conduct an ICO.

So, what does it take to do a successful ICO? 

That question takes us right into the next section of this post.


4.  The empowr Initial Coin Offering (ICO)

OK, so what does it take to do a successful ICO? 

Conducting a successful ICO requires the following:

A.   The right story

The more of the following story elements a company has, the stronger its story:

1.   A business model that is interesting to coin purchasers

Investors are looking for business models that have a platform and network effect – where (as the company’s customer base grows, it becomes more difficult for competitors to compete with them)

2.   A well-written “whitepaper” – or document – that successfully explains the opportunity

3.   Lots of media (such as videos) that help explain that story

4.   Experienced management that can lead the project to succeed

            Many (most) ICOs don’t have impressive management team members

5.   Product and technology that’s already built.

Almost all ICOs don’t have their product built yet, and therefore, no matter how much money they raise, they will likely fail before ever having their product built

6.   Patented technologies

Patents prove that the team can innovate, and have defensible technology that helps protect them from competition

7.   Revenues

            Most companies conducting ICOs don’t have revenues yet

8.   A community

            Most ICOs don’t have any or much of a community


We’ve talked to dozens of cryptocurrency experts, and I can humbly tell you that after they learn about us, they generally say that “empowr has the strongest story of every cryptocurrency in the market.”

We can say with confidence that, relative to the other opportunities available to cryptocurrency coin purchasers, empowr is strong in all eight of the above categories. 

That is really good news, but perhaps should be expected given that...

... after actually inventing virtual currency, together as a community we’ve spent 17 years working very, very hard on the above things...

... and have found a way to maintain progress despite not accepting a single penny in investor capital.

Wait a minute! If we have never allowed investors into empowr, by bringing in coin purchasers now, aren’t we going against our objectives?

The answer is NO. 


Unlike traditional investors that would buy a piece (shares) of the company and therefore have certain control over the company...

... coin purchasers will have no control over empowr.

But don’t people get to vote on who runs the company -- based on the number of empowr coins they own?

The answer is NO.

Votes (for example, in our upcoming empowr presidential election) will depend on your mission points, not your coin ownership...

... in accordance with our desire to balance the power that money will have in our democracy, with the power that labor will have...

... which we believe is a critically important ingredient to building a better democracy.


OK, so we were talking about what it takes to have a successful ICO.

We said it takes a couple things – the first of which is the right story elements.

What’s the 2nd thing?


B.  Exposure to the large crypto coin purchasers

Most of the dollars pouring into ICOs are coming from a small and hidden group of crypto coin purchasers.

These are often people who believed in cryptocurrency when no one else did.

Many of them simply purchased a few hundred dollars or, in some cases, one or two thousand dollars, in bitcoin just a few years ago, when the price of bitcoin was 5 to 8 cents each.

Of course, anyone who bought $1,000 in bitcoin when it was 5 cents each, now has 200 million dollars.

That’s not a typo:  Yes, $1,000 became $200,000,000.

These people were visionaries. At the point when they bought their coins, friends and family probably told them that they might as well flush down their $1,000 down the toilet, than buy some “virtual currency” called bitcoin. 

They risked their money based on a vision they had in their head for the future.

Today, the top coins are worth nearly 500 billion dollars combined.

That’s a half trillion dollars of wealth that’s been created nearly “overnight,” seemingly out of thin air.

Most of that wealth belongs to the kinds of people I was just talking about:

A relatively small number of people who have become incredibly wealthy as a result of their vision...

... and continue to believe in the power and future of cryptocurrency.

These people are looking for new opportunities to invest their capital.



To raise large amounts in an ICO, a company needs to somehow get these people to become aware of their story.

So, what does it take to do that?

The crypto world is still a relatively small world.

To ensure that the crypto coin purchasers have heard of empowr – we need to do two (2) things:

1.  We must find many of the top people in social media (the ones who have a lot of followers that are interested in crypto) and tell them our story.

These “crypto influencers” love using their social media accounts to tell their audience about the exciting new coins they learn about.

The good news is that empowr’s management has been quite busy, reaching out to crypto influencers, and is having success in this area. 

As we meet these influencers and tell them our story, and they then go out and conduct their own research, one after another they are becoming convinced that there is likely not another story out there that’s better than empowr’s – as far as how successful its coin could be in the coming years.

The good news is that the empowr story appears to be quite strong:

Even the naysayers out there (that might leave negative comments about empowr) do not hold much weight against the power of the empowr business model, network effect, community of citizens and success coaches...

... along with the product and technologies, patents (including virtual currency itself), plus the experience level of our management...

... plus our media (videos and posts) and other critical elements such as all the mechanisms we have been building together over the years with an objective of creating and retaining demand for our currency.

The bottom line is that empowr’s management is very busy these days speaking to crypto influencers and, one after another, helping them to fully understand the empowr story.


OK, we said that to raise large amounts in an ICO, empowr needs to get the large crypto coin purchasers to become aware of our story.

We were discussing that, we first need to attract the crypto influencers – the ones with large social media followings.

What’s the 2nd thing we need to do?


2.  We must rise up as a community and show our strength

If our community is strong, the experts say, then they will appear every time an article is written, or a social media post happens somewhere, and they will voice their opinions.

For our ICO to be very successful, we need a plan to use all our strengths – not just the empowr story and management team – but our community of citizens – YOU – to get the word out that we are strong, we are united, we care and are mobilized for the success of our mission and coin.

In the coming days, we’ll discuss the plans for this focus and – to make it fun – we’ll even tie-in some great coin compensation opportunities for our community members related to these activities.

In a moment, I’ll mention (below) the first step you can take, so you’re ready to go.

But first, to summarize what we’ve discussed thus far:

·         To ensure the empowr coin is successful, we want it to be listed on the top currency exchanges.

·         And for that to happen, we want to have a successful ICO.

·         For that to happen, we want our (very strong) story to get lots of exposure in the crypto world.

·         And for that to happen, as a company and community, we need to get very busy telling our story.



OK, so when will the ICO start?

Any moment now. Hopefully during or even before this weekend. We are busy getting the final elements in place, which include our mechanisms to reward empowr community members for their efforts in the ICO. More on that in a moment.

We also want to be very confident that we’re doing everything right, as far as all the latest laws and requirements in every territory, which are changing almost by the day.  We want to be very confident that we’re doing everything perfectly by the book, we’ll get going.

We will post full ICO details in the coming days.



When will the ICO end – and when will the coin be available on exchanges?

Based on your feedback, and the feedback we’ve received from our advisors, in our ICO, we will sell 400M empowr coins at a price of $1 per coin.

The ICO will end when those 400M coins have sold out.

With your help, which I will discuss below, we are hoping to sell the supply of coins quickly, so that we can be up on exchanges in as little as 30 days.


But what if the coins do not sell within 30 days? 

empowr will end the sale by a certain date (around 60 days or so).

We are awaiting details from advisors for when they think that end date should be, given the ever-changing state of the landscape.

If the market is bad, it will take longer. If it is good, the supply will sell faster, of course. 


Either way, we will not let the ICO stay open too long

As a reminder, it does us no good to end the sale too early, if we cannot get the coin live on top exchanges.

But I think everyone can agree that we all want this process to be done as soon as possible.

Let’s hope that the market is good so we can be done with the ICO in just a few weeks.

If the market gets very bad, empowr will stand out even more -- from among the other coins -- given that our story, platform and community are much more evolved than the others out there.


5.  The empowr founder coin giveaway and auction

As you may know, empowr is giving away 10% of the entire future supply of empowr coins to its community...

... because of your contributions to the mission and movement.

empowr simply wouldn’t exist without your willingness to put so many years of hard work, patience, faith and incredible belief into this effort.

Not all people that contributed to empowr have claimed their founder coins, because many of them are no longer involved and some of their email addresses are no longer valid.

We have sent them emails, plus some of you are successfully reaching out to them, and every day many of them are returning to claim their founder coins.

Thus far, 80% of their 1B coins have been claimed. Now, empowr is doing one final large email blast that appears to be closing that gap.


So, what happens to the founder coins that, in the end, do not get claimed?

There is an auction taking place right now, for any coins that have not been claimed.

Here are the statistics for the auction:

The average max bid price for the entire duration of the auction is just over $4 per coin and is creeping up slowly. In March, the average max bid price is already over $6.50.

As always, thank you – everybody -- for your belief in the empowr currency and economy.

However, as a reminder, everyone’s final price will NOT be based on the average price, but the lowest max bid price that anyone placed (if they won coins in the auction).

Since the supply of founder coins is shrinking each day, and max bid amounts are consistently creeping up, it’s clear that the final auction price will mostly likely end up being a little over $2 per coin, and possibly as high as $2.50.

But a $2 price would mean that you will end up paying more in the auction than the price that coin purchasers will pay in the ICO – which will be $1. 

Of course that won’t work for us. Of course our community should pay less than the general public.

Therefore we think that everyone’s price should be lowered to $1 per coin.


But what if we could do better than that?

To thank you for being so patient and amazing – in every possible way -- we are suggesting the following:

Your final price from the auction will be lowered -- by 90% -- to 10 cents.


Yes, that means that you’ll get ten times more coins. J

Also, as reminder, to thank everyone that received coins instead of cash outs in the last few months -- as empowr spent its resources on the cryptocurrency process – our community will get 50% more free founder coins...

... meaning your final price will be end up at exactly 6.66 cents per coin. JJJ

The bottom line is that all community members – whether they bought in the auction -- or are waiting on cash outs – will receive their coins at 6.66 cents per coin.

(Yes, if you bought coins in the auction and expected to get a bonus of 10%, 20%, 30% or even 40% more free coins -- you too will get 50% more free coins).

Anyone that wants to cancel their bid, can do that, of course, from the auction page.

And anyone that placed a bid (at any price) can simply leave it alone and will automatically get coins at 10 cents each – with a 50% bonus = 6.67 cents per coin.

Sound good? J


A challenge

There is a problem with doing the above (giving you 10x more coins):  That total amount of coins being distributed will likely be too much to pour into the exchanges all at once. It might damage the coin’s price.

Remember, the price of the coin is based on supply and demand. So, if we push out too much supply, it will hurt the price.

Therefore, we suggest that 16.67% of these coins unlock each month, for 6 months. 

That’s one-sixth of the coins unlocking each month -- for 6 months – so at the end of the 6 months, they are all unlocked.

Does that sound like a good deal?

Remember, just your first month’s unlocked coins is a larger number than the full number of coins you would have received (before we multiplied it by 10)...

... so I imagine no one will have any challenge with this offer.

But please let me know if you have any issues with this.

Again, these policies are to ensure your coin’s price has a great chance to do really well, right from the beginning.

Note: As a reminder, any founder coins awarded to you outside of the coins you purchased in the auction will still be released at 1% per month once the coin is on the exchanges.


When will the founder coin sale end?

The founder coin distribution and sale must close before the start of the ICO – which means it must end in about 2 – 3 days from now.

That means that if you want coins at 10 cents – with 50% bonus coins – meaning 6.67 cents as your final price -- simply go to the sale page right now and place your bid (at any price) and 6.67 cents will now be your final price per coin. Period.

We hope that most everyone finds these suggestions (especially the price of coins) to be fair and representative of the spirit of this community’s relationship with each other – that of great respect, gratitude and trust.

By the way, if you do not feel like that spirit is represented in any of these suggestions, we most definitely want to hear your thoughts and logic, and of course are very open to hearing any and all suggestions.

Again, expect the founder sale and opportunity to end in the next couple of days.


6.  How can you help and earn even more coins?

Along with the growing team of crypto influencers who are joining our team, we are building a public relations team that will be putting news out about once a week.

That process has already begun. Here’s our first announcement:  Inventor of virtual currency embraces blockchain

In the coming days, we’ll post details on how you can increase empowr’s ICO exposure in the crypto industry.

We need your help ensuring the success of the empowr coins -- and you’ll be able to earn even more of coins from this effort.

We won’t hold back at all in rewarding our citizens with a lot of coins for working together to ensure the success of the ICO and coin.


The first step

To get started, please create an account on the following social platforms (if you don’t have one already) and Fan/Friend/Like/Follow/Join these empowr accounts so you’re ready to go when we share the next steps in the coming days:

We will keep you posted and ensure any changes to the landscape or strategy are discussed, and major decisions are decided together as a community.


Your president,


Education, education, education

My fellow empowrians,

Today, I’m honored and delighted to announce a great new way to earn empowr coins...

... a really great opportunity for all citizens that have chosen to join or create empowr countries.


The topic today is: EDUCATION

In case you hadn’t noticed, in recent weeks everyone is becoming more and more focused on education.

In a moment, I’ll provide the details about this incredible new bonus idea that I am fairly confident most citizens will become big fans of – especially after everyone has had a chance to review and improve the ideas discussed in this post.

But first, let’s make sure we’re all on the same page regarding the (education-based) objectives behind these ideas.

 I could discuss our educational objectives from the perspective of the success of the empowr mission or achieving empowr’s overarching goal.

But instead, I’m going to discuss our educational objectives from the perspective of the empowr coin, since I know many empowr citizens are very excited about the opportunity the empowr coin represents. 

(By the way, an update for you on the empowr coin is in the works; stay tuned for that).

Growing the price of our coin

To accomplish our mission, and help billions out of poverty, we want and need the price of our coin to continuously grow with the passing of time.

The price of anything -- including a cryptocurrency like the empowr coin – depends on its supply (in this case, how many coins exist) and the demand for it (how many people want the coin and how much they want the coin).

Since cryptocurrencies like the empowr coin will have a limited supply – meaning the total number of coins will grow at a smaller and smaller rate until the number hardly grows at all...

... the price of the empowr coin will very much be a factor of the level of demand that will exist for it.

That means that for our coins to succeed, we must continuously grow the demand for the empowr coin.

Growing demand for the empowr coin

The more people use (utilize) something, the more of it they want ( = demand). Of course there is little demand for things that people have very little use for.

Getting more empowr coins to be utilized means growing the number of products and services that are being bought and sold using empowr coins.

Therefore, to grow the price of the empowr coin, we want to grow your sales of products and services -- to and from each other.

The two (2) steps to growing everyone’s sales in empowr:

  • To grow sales, we must first educate non-citizens on the reasons to join empowr. By joining empowr, they then become potential buyers and sellers (meaning potential users of our coins).
  • After they join empowr, we want to further educate new citizens on how to use the various features of the empowr platform to provide products and services to other empowr citizens. That is, we want to move them from being potential buyers and sellers – to becoming actual buyers and sellers – which should increase the usage (and demand -- and price) of our coins.


 Note: For the purposes of this post, every time I say someone is “productive”, I specifically mean that they “have earned at least 100 mission points in the last 30 days”. To learn how to earn mission points, and see how many points you have earned, visit your mission points page.


As I hope you can see, EDUCATION is the key to the success of your empowr coins

And that’s why we’re all becoming more and more focused on education.

Some examples of how this is happening:


We’ve added a link to our new Quick Start Guide, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section to the top of every page...Education, education, education

... and to the homepage of the site – so citizens can educate themselves:  

   Education, education, education


To reward our citizens that are becoming educated and productive, we’ve redesigned the Mission Wheel to provide significant amounts of coins based on each citizen’s level of success.

Your wheel prizes can now grow to be exactly 200 times larger: Up to 20 times larger based on the citizen’s mission points; and 10 times larger based on their mission role:

20  X  10 = 200 times larger


Education by inviters

Virtually all new empowr citizens first learned about empowr from a friend.

Indeed, many of you have become quite focused on inviting others to empowr, and educating them on how to become successful and productive.

Many of you are even selflessly shared your success tips with each other, including the details of what’s working best for you when inviting others – using this centralized communication hub.

Everyone is now being rewarded with a minimum of 100 empowr coins for each of their invites that becomes productive.  Full details here

(Again, by saying someone is “productive” I mean they have earned at least 100 mission points in the last 30 days).


Education by Success Coaches

Last week, the Success Coaches learned of a significant update to the way the compensation engines will now operate for compensating educators (Success Coaches). 

Now, Success Coaches will become more focused than ever, on educating their students on how to become productive and successful in empowr.

Indeed, they’ll now be earning upwards of 10 times or even more, for each of their students that is productive – starting from $120/year all the way up to $480/year for each productive student they have.

(No better time than now to become a Success Coach. For details on how to do this, ask your own Success Coach)

To assist coaches with this effort, last week empowr launched the ability for empowr citizens to view their Success Coach’s live calendar, and schedule a time slot with their SC to use live video to learn how to become more successful and productive.

To see if your Success Coach has enabled this feature yet, simply click “Ask me” at the top of any page and, if they have enabled it, you’ll notice this link:

               Education, education, education

Remember, you’re always free to compare Success Coach performance and even switch your Success Coach by visiting the Success Coach Leaderboard.


It takes a village

As the old African phrase says, “It takes a village to raise a child”

Along with the direct compensation that’s earned by an empowr citizen when they succeed in empowr, we’re further encouraging and rewarding citizens for their success using the Mission Wheel.

In addition, we’re rewarding the citizen’s “parent” – meaning their inviter – the one who “brought them into this world”.

And of course we’re rewarding their teacher (their Success Coach).


So, why stop there?

Today, we’re suggesting that we add an additional focus and bonus:

Education by countries

As you may know, empowr countries are forming to help empowr become a better economy and social network – by allowing the empowr experience to be tailored to the unique needs and wants of our different citizens.

Which countries will be the most successful?

We think that, as empowr’s capabilities grow and it’s able to provide more and more features to empowr countries....

... allowing them to tailor their offerings to their citizens...

... it will be like having thousands of “little empowrs” -- all experimenting to find what works best for the needs of their citizens.

Our belief is that many of those experiments will result in something better than what empowr can come up with, or provide, on its own.


To help get the process started, we propose the following approach and rewards for empowr countries and their citizens:

Starting this week, empowr will keep track of all the coins (from the Mission Wheel) earned by each country’s citizens on a daily basis.

When the month ends, empowr will reward the top countries – the ones that were most successful at educating their citizens – as follows:

We will count how many citizens each country had that were NOT productive the month before (February) AND became productive by the end of this month (March).

The countries with the most “newly productive” citizens win.

Note: In the coming days, empowr will launch a new leaderboard that will reveal the current rank of empowr countries based on this approach: Which country is 1st  which is 2nd etc. in this effort.


So, what does 1st place win?

The country that comes in first, will get a HUGE bonus of coins!

The bonus will equal one and a half (1.5) times (that’s 150%) of ALL the coins that ALL its citizens earned during the entire month of March.

For example, if Country A wins 1st place, and its citizens won $100,000 in coins in March from the Mission Wheel, then an additional $150,000 in coins will be provided to Country A to utilize and/or distribute as it wishes.


What about 2nd place? Does it win anything?

Yes, 2nd place wins a bonus of 125% coins!


What about 3rd place?

Our suggestion is for the top 12 countries to win coins, as follows:

1st place wins 150% bonus coins

2nd place wins 125% bonus coins

3rd place wins 100% bonus coins

4th place wins 90% bonus coins

5th place wins 80% bonus coins

6th place wins 70% bonus coins

7th place wins 60% bonus coins

8th place wins 50% bonus coins

9th place wins 40% bonus coins

10th place wins 30% bonus coins

11th place wins 20% bonus coins

12th place wins 10% bonus coins


The idea is that, as countries get better and better at this – moving up the ranks -- their prizes grow substantially.


Five (5) country tiers

Some countries will become larger than others, and therefore will have a bit of (what some might say is) an “unfair advantage”. 

Therefore, we suggest that countries be divided into 5 tiers by size (their number of citizens) and be labeled as follows: 

·      Tiny Countries

·      Small Countries

·      Medium Countries

·      Large Countries

·      Super Countries


Each tier will have its own ranking and winnings.

In other words, five (5) countries will receive 1st prizes (150% more coins)...

(that's one country in each tier)

... and five (5) countries will receive 2nd prizes (125% more coins)...

... and so on, and so forth – so that a total of 60 (=12 x 5) countries are being rewarded each month.

Countries will be automatically assigned to their tiers on the first day of each month based on the number of citizens they have at that moment.


How will the winning countries distribute their coins?

That’s not for empowr to decide; it’s for the countries to discuss and decide with their citizens.

I can imagine that the countries will want to take into consideration that their rank, and the size of the pool (the number) of coins they won were based on at least 2 factors (and quite possibly more):

1.  Who most helped them to win – meaning how did they go about educating non-productive citizens to become productive?

Perhaps countries will want to “hire” some of their citizens to assist with educating their non-productive citizens. If so, they’ll naturally want and need to use some of their coin winnings to reward those “hired” people.

They can then distribute the remainder of their bonus coins to the rest of the country’s citizens.

2.   How effective was each of their citizens in growing the SIZE of the bonus pool?

In March, if Sally won exactly twice as many coins on the Mission Wheel as Joe did, it means that she was responsible for exactly twice as many coins coming into the country’s bonus pool as Joe was.

Clearly, she accomplished that by doing a better job than Joe with her mission role and mission points (along with hitting her daily goals) because that’s how the wheel’s prizes (and whether it appears or not) are determined.

Therefore, it probably makes sense that – all else being equal -- Sally should receive (from the bonus pool) exactly twice as many coins as Joe.  I hope this makes sense to everyone.

Countries are free to make their own choices

Having pointed out the above obvious points, we want to reiterate that each country should be completely free to reward their citizens as they like.

By enabling countries to be free to innovate (by the empowr community not forcing any rules on the countries) we can be very confident that many countries will invent smarter solutions and achieve better results than a group of engineers at empowr could ever do on their own.

I highly recommend to countries to be transparent – meaning telling your citizens exactly how you will go about compensating them if your country wins – so there is less chance that they are disappointed later because they may have had different expectations.

And in being transparent, remind your citizens that you also want to be free to learn from your moves, so they should expect that your approach will change over time.

On that note, everyone please note the same message from empowr:  This program, like everything we’re doing, is experimental and, as we learn together, we should expect a few things – or a lot of things – about this effort to change or even cease to exist if it’s not working out and hitting our the intended objectives, as detailed above.


In a moment, I’ll ask for your comments to ensure your best ideas are being incorporated into the process.

Before we do, a couple more thoughts / ideas:

1.  People can be a citizen of only one (or zero) countries at a time

2.  When joining a country, citizens might be asked to agree to having their email address provided to the country’s administrators.

If they do not agree, citizens can choose to not join the country:

                            Education, education, education

Why is this functionality and data being provided to countries?

This is so that the countries can reach out to their citizens, using the empowr platform and/or using their own email application, to work with their citizens and help them to become productive.

I imagine many countries will want to create email newsletters, webinars, training modules, and/or create or utilize other assets that require communicating with their citizens outside of empowr.

A quick note to the admins of countries

Dear country admins,

We cannot wait to give you more and more functionality and power, including additional abilities (email addresses) to communicate directly with your citizens.

Please keep in mind that any abuse of email addresses, including not opting citizens out of your communications when they ask you to do so, or continuing to reach out to them if they have departed your country, or promoting any product other than empowr, will be considered a severe violation of the empowr terms of service and will result in immediate termination of the country AND all the empowr accounts of all the offending country’s admins.

So, choose your admins wisely, as they can single-handedly cause your country and account to be removed from empowr.

I hope you can understand how risky it is to provide this data to empowr countries. Therefore, we must be very serious about enforcing the rules around it.


Limited access to email addresses

We think that access to the email addresses of country citizens (that have opted in to allow this) will be limited to country admins that have personally achieved at least a red basic power level, 10,000 all-time mission points and 500 30-day mission points.

Of course each citizen must agree to have their email address shared with the country’s admins, before empowr will share their email address. 

If a citizen previously joined a country, before this opt-in process existed, their email address will NOT be viewable by the country’s admins. To make it viewable, they can simply leave the country and immediately get back in, after agreeing to the country’s terms.

Countries can choose to turn this functionality off if they like – so people joining will not see the opt-in text and they will not have access to their citizens’ email addresses.


One for all and all for one

As you can see, together as a community – now more than ever.

... we’re all in this together:

   We are all part of the same mission and going after the same overarching goal

·      We all have the same exact type of currency: The empowr coin

·      The price of everyone’s coins will always be the same, of course.

·      The opportunity to earn empowr coins is simple, fair, transparent and open to everyone.

·      We are partnering as a community – a “village” -- together accepting the responsibility for educating our “youth” very seriously -- and enabling / rewarding:

Citizens to educate themselves
:  We will continue to improve our tools that allow our youth to self-educate.

Inviters to educate their invitees: Each of us is taking it upon ourselves to educate the people that we have invited to empowr.

Success Coaches to educate their students: Coaches are significantly increasing their focus and availability to their students to ensure each of them becomes productive and successful.

Countries to educate their citizens: And now, countries and their citizens should become more and more focused on educating the country’s “youth” and helping them to become successful and productive.


Every time a student becomes productive, WE ALL WIN 

Everyone in the “village” should “feel the win” every time the win occurs.

Remember, the “win” happens when a new (non-productive) citizen becomes productive (earning 100 mission points or more in the last 30 days).

Each time that happens, not only does the empowr community move closer to the realization of its mission and overarching goal...

... but with each newly productive citizen:

...  the citizen is directly compensated...

... their “parent” (inviter) is rewarded...

... their Success Coach is compensated...

... their fellow countrymen and women are rewarded.

            Working together, we cannot fail


Your input please

What do you think about this new approach?  Do you like or dislike it?

What are your ideas on how to improve it?

Let’s take a couple days to hear your thoughts, ideas and concerns.

Assuming most everyone ends up in agreement (after we adjust the above details based on your thoughts) we’ll consider the process and competition started (as of today, March 1 , 2018). 

(You’ll be able to see your statistics in just a few days, but that shouldn’t stop you from becoming organized and getting busy working on educating your non-productive citizens to become productive).

Everyone, if you haven’t already, please ensure that you are in only one (or zero) countries. In about 48 hours from now, empowr’s engineers will be looking at anyone that’s in more than one country, and removing them from all but one of their countries (chosen randomly from the countries they are in).  That means that by this weekend, everyone will be in at most one country.

We are looking forward to your thoughts.

Your truly,
