Free TON

Partnership proposal - global phone top-up

Worldwide mobile phone top-up with Free TON tokens

Description

The world runs on mobile. The use of mobile internet data surpassed desktop a decade ago. Mobiles cost money. The vast majority of users don’t have contracts and use prepaid mobile plans that require constant top-ups. This process is a hassle since the user needs to have a credit card or must visit a vendor.

Nebeus was registered in the UK in 2014. It has clients in Europe and developing countries. Its main business is crypto-collateralized loans, but as an additional service, Nebeus provides a way to top-up mobile phones in 180 countries worldwide.

Nebeus is bringing its top-up service to free TON users - accepting TON crystals to top-up almost any mobile phone in the world. It is building a gateway to accept TON crystals via a Telegram chatbot and a proper DeBot in TON Surf.

Solution specs

  • Accept TON crystals.
  • Allow topping-up of any supported phone number in the world.
  • Exclude numbers in Russia and Kazakhstan, since a system that covers these countries already exists.
  • Redirect users of +7 country code numbers to the existing solution.
  • Cross-promote the new service to its users and the press and participate in mutual promotions with Free TON.

Community benefits:

  • Provide actual utility for TON crystals.
  • Present Free TON network as having real utility for its users.

Plan of action for Nebeus

  1. Set up a Free TON node.
  2. Interface with own systems.
  3. Create a Telegram chatbot.
  4. Using TON OS SDK, create a DeBot for use with TON Surf.
  5. Announce the availability of the new service together with Free TON.

Token distribution schedule

  • 50% tokens are paid upfront
  • KPI#1: Nebeus installs Free TON node, develops Telegram chatbot & DeBot, files a progress report. MVP is launched, submission is filed.
  • Another 20% is paid out.
  • KPI#2: After 6 months of updates and fixes for issues raised, a submission is filed.
  • The final 20% is paid out.

Total sum

120,000 Ton crystals. This also includes the collateral that Nebeus needs to provide momentary top-ups.

Hello!

Today had a conversation with @cryonyx about this kind of interaction with Free TON like Partnerships! This is very interesting and important. Vlad is preparing a mechanism for launching such activities in Free TON.

Why do you think that the existing solution for Russia is ideal and no alternative is required?
(by the way, I don’t know what the solution is, could you tell me about it?)

Why exclude something or create artificial restrictions? Why not make an universal solution without excluding any countries at once?

We do not think that anything is ideal. We just want to give existing projects some breathing room and space to grow. Then there will be competition on all directions and the user will have more choice.

More choice appears when alternatives are available. However, you put some restrictions at the start and thereby limit these alternatives. This is a contradiction.

I think there is no need to introduce any country restrictions in your proposal.
