Private Presale | SAFT | April 13, 2018

Federal Exemption and Exclusion Claimed:

Rule 506(b)

The company cannot use general solicitation or advertising to market the securities.

The company may sell its securities to an unlimited number of "accredited investors" and up to 35 other purchasers. All non-accredited investors, either alone or with a purchaser representative, must be sophisticated—that is, they must have sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters to make them capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment.

Companies must decide what information to give to accredited investors, so long as it does not violate the antifraud prohibitions of the federal securities laws. This means that any information a company provides to investors must be free from false or misleading statements. Similarly, a company should not exclude any information if the omission makes what is provided to investors false or misleading. Companies must give non-accredited investors disclosure documents that are generally the same as those used in Regulation A or registered offerings, including financial statements, which in some cases may need to be certified or audited by an accountant. If a company provides information to accredited investors, it must make this information available to non-accredited investors as well.
The company must be available to answer questions by prospective purchasers.

Overclock Labs, Inc. plans to file for Rule 506(c) soon.

Minimum investment accepted from any outside investor: 0 USD

Offering and Sales Amounts:

  • Total Offering Amount $5,000,000 USD
  • Total Amount Sold $1,269,127 USD
  • Total Remaining to be Sold $3,730,873 USD

Total number of investors who already have invested in the offering: 38

Q&A

1. Where is your company registered? Could i have a copy of certificate of incorporation, list of directors and details of registered office address?
The company is Overclock Labs, a Delaware corporation. You can see a bit here https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/ovrclk Our SEC Form D is at https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1734871/000173487118000002/xslFormDX01/primary _doc.xml. If you want the actual certificate of incorporation I can dig that up.

2. Can i have details of any intellectual property which the company has created, registered or applied to register?
We’ve not yet registered any patents but plan to.

3. Can you share your Cap Table?
After a deeper discussion, yes.

4. What is the vesting schedule for Team and Advisors token? (% and how long vested)
Founders, employees, and early investors will vest over 24 months with a 1 year lockup; Advisors will vest over 12 months with 6 months lockup. Token terms available at https://akash.network/terms.pdf

5. Is vesting for Team and Advisors coded in the smart contract?
No it is not (no smart contracts per se).

6. Is your smart contract deployed for the ICO?
We use the tendermint framework and define blockchain operations in the Go programming language, so no smart contracts per se. These operations are included in our open source project here.

7. Was your smart contract audited by an independent cybersecurity company?
Moot, see above

8. Could I have a link to your github repo?
https://github.com/ovrclk/akash/

9. Do you have a working product available to test?
There is a working prototype marketplace available at https://github.com/ovrclk/akash/#running . You will see in there that the datacenters are stubbed out. This is because it is not yet a working product that can be installed at a datacenter. We are working on that now!

10. Has the code for your product been published, and has is it been audited by an independent cybersecurity company?
It is open source so yes it has been published, but no, not yet audited (though we’d welcome it!)

11. Are you using a reputable 3rd party for KYC verification? How safe is it to upload my Identity Document on your site?
We are using Shufti as our third party KYC service. We’ve developed against their APIs and hope to roll it out during the week of 9-April. Akash doesn’t view or store ID docs - they are passed directly to Shufti in an iframe. Shufti encrypts all data in transit and at rest and are fully PCI/GDPR compliant, with servers residing in EU.

12. Can us investors participate in the sale? If yes did you secure Reg-D?
Yes you can and yes we have filed for 506(b). We plan to file for 506(c) soon.

13. Where is my money going and what will it be used for? Is my money going to be used to "cash out" others?
The funds will be used for development, maintenance and distribution of Akash Network over the course of next five years. There are no “cash out” events.

14. What specific rights come with my investment?
Full refund upon dissolution and/or termination (Please see SAFT agreement)

15. Are there financial statements? If so, are they audited, and by whom?
Yes. Unaudited. Data Room is available after a deeper discussion

16. How, when, and at what cost can I sell my investment? For example, do I have a right to give the token or coin back to the company or to receive a refund? Can I resell the coin or token, and if so, are there any limitations on my ability to resell?
The crowd sale price is set at $0.14 currently. You can resell the token after 6 months of issuance. You do not have the “right” to give the coin back but the company is planning on hosting an exchange for provide early liquidity. There are no limitations on your ability to resell.

17. If a digital wallet is involved, what happens if I lose the key? Will I still have access to my investment?
We are selling SAFTs right now. When it is converted to a token, we assume that if you lose access to your wallet, you will lose access to your investment.

18. Has the offering been structured to comply with the securities laws and, if not, what implications will that have for the stability of the enterprise and the value of my investment?
We’re structured to comply with ever-evolving US Securities laws (see reg D answer above)

19. What legal protections may or may not be available in the event of fraud, a hack, malware, or a downturn in business prospects? Who will be responsible for refunding my investment if something goes wrong?
If the company fails to launch the network by December 31st, 2020, the company is contractually obliged to repay the purchaser the discount purchase amount.

20. If I do have legal rights, can I effectively enforce them and will there be adequate funds to compensate me if my rights are violated?
Yes

Hi all, I'd like to request a couple changes to this review:

  1. Please remove Greg Gopman, he is no longer active with the team
  2. We have now filed our 506(c) exemption https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1734871/000173487118000003/xslFormDX01/primary_doc.xml
  3. In case you want to add some additional detail to the codified vesting language, I probably answered that question too quickly when originally asked - assumed you meant specifically an ERC-20 contract. We will have tokens released programmatically, just on our own native chain (not ERC-20)
