A Solution to Eliminate Predatory Loans and Payday Lending Opens For Global Investment
The Digital Reserve to Raise $2 Million for Debt Based Cryptocurrency
By: The Digital Reserve, P.B.C.
PALO ALTO, Calif. & NEW YORK - July 13, 2018 - PRLog -- The Digital Reserve P.B.C. has announced today that it will be initiating a $2 million USD debt offering solely to accredited investors under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D promulgated by the SEC under the Securities Act. The Company will use the proceeds of the offering to develop the first debt-based cryptocurrency network - the Digital Reserve Network (DRN). The DRN is a peer-to-peer payment system that relies on sustainable lending, collateral-free borrowing and a responsive monetary policy.
The DRN is the brainchild of seasoned blockchain entrepreneur Jomari Peterson who started the Company with Joshua Rittenberg a former V100 lawyer. The mission is to build a system that could provide financial accessibility for the $2 Trillion dollars in unmet financing need, while creating an equitable playing field for disadvantaged and disenfranchised communities..
The proposed DRN design is informed by a few significant design principles:
Mr. Peterson explains: "The mainstream consumer and individual is eager for a solution to better returns or financial accessibility, while currently trying a variety of risky and costly projects and solutions. We've designed the Digital Reserve Network to be easily accessible with an easy to understand interface with a focus on developing easy on-ramps and off-ramps. For the first time, users, lenders and borrowers alike can participate in an innovative solution that empowers them and each other. They can create a healthier economic system, develop layered solutions upon the platform and create a global community that is beneficial to everyone. After intense development and review, we can't wait to share with the global community and have them nurture this unique solution with us."
The Company will be leveraging the newly minted Token DPA to conduct its debt offering: "The Token DPA is an innovative financial instrument developed by the team over at Republic Crypto. It's debt-based, just like our system and was designed to be far more investor friendly than the ubiquitous SAFT agreement," notes Joshua Rittenberg, Peterson's Co-founder.
The Digital Reserve, P.B C. Is conducting this debt offering, with principal plus 50% interest payable by Tokens (Denarii) in lieu of cash. The launch of the Digital Reserve Network (DRN) will generate an initial supply of 6 Billion DRN Tokens, called Denarii. 300 Million Denarii will be allotted for purchasers of the Token DPA (Debt Payable by Asset). The offering of the Token DPA on July 23rd, is an alternative to the SAFT (Simple Agreement for Future Tokens), which offers limited to nil protections if the project is never completed
"With the Digital Reserve Network, borrowers will be empowered to determine their own interest rates and repayment periods in the process of developing their financial literacy"
-CEO, Jomari Peterson
The Token DPA is a debt instrument, which is in alignment with the network protocols. By lending money, the offering participants take priority in the case of bankruptcy or dissolution over equity and SAFT holders, in most cases. In addition, the loan gains interest. This allows early supporters to receive all the benefits of supporting the work with more downside protections.
