THIS FEATURE HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED YET. WE SUGGEST ONLY UPLOADING CONTENT THAT PERMANENTLY YOU WISH TO SHARE.

27.) WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL 1/1/21 FOR THE NEW SHADOWBOX PLATFORM?

SHADOWBOX WENT THROUGH MANY ROUNDS OF TESTING AND IS CONFIDENT WITH ITS FINALIZED PRODUCT TO BE BUILT ON BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY. BLOCKCHAIN STILL, IS RELATIVELY NEW STUFF, YET IT IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN IN SEARCH OF, AND IS EXTREMELY IT’S SAFE AND SECURE.

28.) HOW DO I DOWNLOAD MUSIC FROM TRAXX?

29.) DOES SHADOWBOX PERMIT ME TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC ON MY PHONE?

NOT AS OF YET. SHADOWBOX WILL SLOWLY BUT SURELY RELY ON TECHNOLOGIES THAT FUNCTION EFFICIENTLY ON MOBILE DEVICES.

NOT YET. SHADOWBOX RELIES ON TECHNOLOGIES THAT SIMPLY DON’T FUNCTION ON MOBILE DEVICES, LIKE METAMASK. FOR NOW STREAMING THE AUDIO WILL HAVE TO SUFFICE. WE HAVE A MOBILE APP IN THE PIPELINE BUT RIGHT NOW YOU WILL STILL NEED A DESKTOP TO MAKE PURCHASES.

34.) CAN I USE A CREDIT CARD TO USE SHADOWBOX?

NOT YET. THE TECHNOLOGY SIMPLY ISN’T THERE RIGHT NOW. HOWEVER, AS SOON AS IT IS, WE PLAN TO SUPPORT IT. FOR NOW, SERVICES LIKE COINBASE ALLOW YOU TO BUY ETHER WITH A CREDIT CARD.

35.) WHAT IS A STAKER?

A STAKER TRANSACTS/PURCHASES, HOLDS AND/OR RECEIVES A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF ETHER (ETH) TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NETWORK AND OBTAIN A REWARD IN RETURN. PLEASE NOTE: THE PROCESS OF STAKING INVOLVES LOCKING UP AN AMOUNT OF A GIVEN CRYPTOCURRENCY IN A WALLET TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OPERATION OF A BLOCKCHAIN IN RETURN FOR REWARDS. THEORETICALLY, ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE IN STAKING ON ANY BLOCKCHAIN OPERATING A PROOF-OF-STAKE CONSENSUS. PROOF-OF-STAKE HAS SEVERAL VARIATIONS, WHICH ALSO ALLOW PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE IN STAKING. LIKE A SUBSCRIBER/SUPPORTER, A STAKER IS AN INDIVIDUAL AND/OR SINGE ACCOUNT GROUP/PLAN (AS APPLICABLE) THAT SIGNS UP WITH SHADOWBOX ACROSS ONE (1) OF OUR SIX (6) (FREEMIUM-PAID PLANS) THROUGH MEANS INCLUDING USER INFO, EMAIL, MOBILE (SMS VERIFICATION-TEXT), NAME, PRIMARY/SECONDARY INTERESTS, ETC; AND HAVE AGREED TO BE UPDATED/ REACHED THROUGH OUR SYSTEM ON A MONTHLY SYSTEM (AS APPLICABLE).FOR ADDITIONAL REFERENCE, STAKING IS THE PROCESS OF FUSING TWO (2) COMPONENTS BY FABRICATING A ‘MEDDLING’ (INTERVENTION) BETWEEN THE TWO (2) PIECES.

  1. COMPONENT (1) – THE MACHINERY THAT HAS A GAP IN IT
  2. COMPONENT (2) – THE OPERATOR THAT FITS WITHIN THE GAP

A STAKING “PUNCH” (NO PUN INTENDED) CAN CONSTRICT THE OPERATOR, IN TURN FORMULATING AN INTERCESSION (MEDDLING) FIT AMONGST THE MACINERY.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE PROUD TO STATE THAT INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY BOASTS BLOCKCHAIN VALUE CREATION; AND ITS FOOTHOLD ON TECHNOLOGY’S DEMONSTRATED IMPACT ON THE ACT OF INVESTING ITSELF. AMIDST THE COMPLEXITIES SURROUNDING THE FUTURE OF GOVERNMENT, THE SEC, AND / OR CRYPTOCURRENCY REGULATION. WE STATE CONFIDENTLY THAT OVER THE PAST 50 MOTHNS, THE POTENTIALITY FOR COMPANIES (OR EVEN INDIVIDUALS) TO SELL “INITIAL COIN AND/OR OFFERINGS” (ICO-IEO); HAS BEEN PUT IN CHECK AND NOW PREACHES TO THE SOPHISTICATED EMERGENCE NEW AND ALTERNATIVE MECHANISMS, INSTRUMENTS, & OPTIONS, PERMITTING DEDICATED TO CAPITALIZE ON NEW PROJECTS/VENTURES WITHOUT TURNING TO THE TRADITIONAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE INVESTMENT LANDSCAPE. POST “THE HEATED (2017-2018) SPECULATOR ICO CRYPTOCURRENCY MARKET”, WE FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THE ROAD TO 2020, AND THE NEEDS OUR TOKEN WILL FULFILL.

36.) WHAT IS A SUBSCRIBER?

A SUBSCRIBER IS AN INDIVIDUAL AND/OR SINGLE ACCOUNT GROUP/PLAN (AS APPLICABLE) THAT SIGNS UP AND REGISTERS (AS DESIRED) WITH SHADOWBOX ACROSS OUR SIX (6) (FREEMIUM-PAID PLANS) THROUGH USER INFO, INCLUDING EMAIL, MOBILE (SMS VERIFICATION), NAME, PRIMARY/SECONDARY INTERESTS; AND HAVE AGREED TO BE UPDATED/REACHED THROUGH OUR SYSTEM ON A MONTHLY SYSTEM (AS APPLICABLE).

37.) WHAT IS A SUPPORTER?

38.) WAS SHADOWBOX CREATED TO HELP ARTISTS SUFFERING THROUGH THE RAMIFICATIONS AND SHUT-DOWNS CAUSED BY THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC (COVID-19)?

CURRENTLY UPDATING

39.) ARE THERE OTHER DIGITAL PLATFORMS AND/OR VENTURES LIKE SHADOWBOX THAT CURRENTLY EXIST AND/OR OPERATE? I.E. WHO ARE YOUR COMPETITORS?

  • ABALLOON
  • UJOMUSIC
  • SOUNDPRUF
  • INDIEON
  • WEESHING
  • CURRENT
  • CUR8 – MERCHANDISE SPECIFIC
  • CIVIL – JOURNALISM SPECIFIC

40.) WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS IN REMAINING “EXCLUSIVE” THIRTY (30) DAYS ON YOUR MARKETPLACE TERM, WHAT DOES SHADOWBOX BRING TO THE TABLE THAT OTHER PLATFORMS CAN’T?

GENERAL: AS A PLATFORM WITH AN “ARTIST FIRST” MENTALITY, SHADOWBOX BETA (V3) WILL EFFECTIVELY UTILIZE BLOCKCHAIN’S ABILITY TO SERVICE ITS CONTRIBUTOR AND HOLDER BASE THROUGH DISTRIBUTED LEDGER SYSTEM(S) THAT CAN VALIDATE AND REGISTER TRANSACTIONS. AS WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF BUILDING OUT OUR PLATFORM, TOKEN, AND FUND, WE MUST EXPRESS OUR ENTHUSIASM REGARDING THE APTITUDE TO DIVERSIFY THE NATURE OF TRANSACTIONS BY ALLOWING PARTIES TO EXPLORE AND EARN THROUGH MEANS OF:

  • ALTERNATIVE
  • DIRECT
  • PEER-TO-PEER
  • PROFIT SHARED

EXCHANGES OF DATA AND MONEY (OR ANYTHING ELSE WITH VALUE OF AGGREGATE). CONTRIBUTORS ON OUR PLATFORM CAN NOW PUBLISH, SELL, AND OUR DISTRIBUTE ON THE LEDGER, THAT PROVIDES FOR:

  • SOLITARY IDENTIFICATION PROCESSES
  • TIME STAMP MECHANISMS
  • PROTOCOLS & PROCEDURES THAT ARE UNCHANGEABLE
  • PROTOCOLS & PROCEDURES THAT OFFER NO ACCESS OR ABILITY TO CAUSE/CHANGE.
  • TRANSACTIONSFUNDAMENTALLYPROGRAMMEDTOEXEMPLIFYTHEHIGHEST
  • STANDARDS OF SECURITY & DEFENSE

THESE BENEFITS BELOW (40.1-40.12) AIM TO STRENGTHEN THE GAME FOR MANY TALENTED (AMATEUR) PRODUCERS WHO DON’T HAVE THE BACKING OF HUGE RECORD LABELS. PLEASE SEE “INSTRUMENTS” UNDER THE “FUND” AND “CLASS” SECTION ON THIS SITE AND OUR WHITEPAPER.

40.1) EARNING: WITH A CALCULATED PROFIT PARTICIPATION (AND INDIVIDUAL) EARNING MODEL, BETA (V3) WILL ACT AS WE PLANNED FOR, GIVING PERTINENT PARTIES (I.E. CONTRIBUTORS) THE ABILITY TO:

  • GET DIRECTLY COMPENSATED THROUGH THE TERMS OF THEIR CONTRACT
  • TAKE STAKE IN OUR PROFIT PARTICIPATION MODEL
  • OPTION TO KEEP A SELECT BODY OF WORK LOCKED IN OUR CATALOG
  • FOR FUTURE GAIN & EXPOSURE.
  • ADDED OPTION TO BE COMPENSATED EVERY TIME THEIR SONGS ARE PLAYED
  • PER THE DURATION SELECTED (AS APPLICABLE)

40.2) IDENTITY: THE ARTIST DASHBOARD ASSEMBLES DATA AROUND CREATIVE WORKS, AND THE USE OF THOSE CREATIVE WORKS THAT CAN BE USED BY APPLICATIONS, LEAVING THE ARTIST IN CONTROL AT ALL TIMES.

40.3) PUBLISHING: ON THE SHADOWBOX NETWORK, YOU CAN NOW PUBLISH UPON UPLOAD BY USING ETHEREUM, PLACING ASIDE THE NEED TO REGISTER COPYRIGHT AND SIGN WITH A PUBLISHER TO ENFORCE THE PAYMENT OF 3RD PARTY USE OF YOUR CREATION.

40.4) LICENSING: WE ASSURE OUR SHADOWBOXERS CAN: CONTROL THE RATE AT WHICH THEY ARE PAID FOR THROUGH (COLLABORATIVE, INDIVIDUAL, AND/ OPTIONAL CONTRIBUTION) SET DEFAULT OPTIONS.

40.5) DISTRIBUTION: SHADOWBOX SEAMLESSLY ENABLES CONTRIBUTORS TO SET DISTRIBUTIONS AFTER PUBLISHING, ASSIGN LICENSES.

40.6) MONEY: AND PUSH TO DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS WITH THEIR SELECTED BODY OF WORK, AND PLACE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INTO OUR CATALOG AND CONTENT BANK FOR CONTINUED EARNING OPTIONS (AS APPLICABLE).

40.7) STORAGE: SHADOWBOX BETA (V3.20.X) WILL ENGAGE THE USE OF DECENTRALIZED AND DISTRIBUTED FILE STORAGE SYSTEMS THAT UNDERSTAND REDUNDANT DATA IS:

  • FAULT-TOLERANT
  • RESILIENT
  • CENSORSHIP-RESISTANT
  • SELF-SUSTAINING

40.8) METADATA: FOR SERVICE PROVIDERS/CONTRIBUTORS TO LICENSE THE WORKS (FOR A MULTITUDE OF USE CASES) IN A MANNER MUCH MORE EASY AND SIMPLISTIC; OUR DESIGNS ENTAIL A:

  • MODERN
  • MACHINE-READABLE
  • CONTENT-ADDRESSED

METADATA STANDARD; AS THAT IS WHAT IS NEEDED/REQUIRED WHEN EXTENDEDING (AS SHADOWBOX IS) TO INTERFACE APPROPRIATELY WITH ETHEREUM (ACROSS OUR NETWORK.

40.9) PAYMENTS: ETHEREUM IS UTILIZED TO BUILD OUT FLEXIBLE AND MODULAR LICENSING SYSTEMS, WHICH ENABLES AUTOMATED PAYMENTS TO RIGHTS HOLDERS, BASED ON LICENSES THEY DESIGN THEMSELVES (IN OUR APPLICATION’S OUR “EASY-TO-USE” INTERFACE, WITH FUNCTIONALITY INCLUDING (BUT NOT LIMITED TO):

  • PROGRAMMATIC CONTRACTS
  • VARIABLE PRICING
  • PAYMENT ROUTING OUR OPEN PLATFORM USES BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

TO CREATE A TRANSPARENT AND DECENTRALIZED DATABASE OF RIGHTS AND RIGHTS OWNERS, AUTOMATING ROYALTY PAYMENTS USING SMART CONTRACTS AND CRYPTOCURRENCY.

40.10) CROSS-BORDER TRANSACTIONS: BLOCKCHAIN AND CRYPTOCURRENCIES ARE NOW WIDELY USED IN PAYMENTS AND REMITTANCE. SINCE TRANSACTION OCCUR IN THE BLOCKCHAIN, CROSS-BORDER PAYMENTS STILL HAVE CHEAPER RATES THAN OTHER SOLUTIONS.

40.11) FRAUD PREVENTION: SHADOWBOX IS UTILIZING FRAUD PREVENTION TACTICS TO INCREASE THE SCAN/CIRCULATION OF GATEWAYS AND CARD PROCESSORS; TO BETTER OFFER TRANSACTION FILTERS AND IDENTITY VERIFICATION SERVICES TO OUR MERCHANTS.

40.12) VALUE: TO TRULY UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF BLOCKCHAIN, AND WHAT WE ARE DOING WITH CRYPTOCURRENCY, LETS TAKE A STEP BACK AND LOOK AT BITCOIN; WHICH WAS THE FIRST DIGITAL CURRENCY AND ASSET UNABLE TO BE REPLICATED. OFF THE BAT, BITCOIN ELIMINATED THE NEED FOR:

  • TRANSACTION FEES
  • PERTINENT THIRD PARTY CONTROLS & OPTIONS
  • REGULATIONS & RESTRICTIONS TYPICALLY ASSOCIATED WITH MOVING CURRENCY

B.) BLOCKCHAIN: GENERAL

1.) WHAT IS A BLOCKCHAIN?

A BLOCKCHAIN IS AN ELECTRONIC DISTRIBUTED LEDGER OR LIST OF ENTRIES – MUCH LIKE A STOCK LEDGER – THAT IS MAINTAINED BY VARIOUS PARTICIPANTS IN A NETWORK OF COMPUTERS. BLOCKCHAINS USE CRYPTOGRAPHY TO PROCESS AND VERIFY TRANSACTIONS ON THE LEDGER, PROVIDING COMFORT TO USERS AND POTENTIAL USERS OF THE BLOCKCHAIN THAT ENTRIES ARE SECURE. SOME EXAMPLES OF BLOCKCHAIN ARE THE BITCOIN AND ETHEREUM BLOCKCHAINS, WHICH ARE USED TO CREATE AND TRACK TRANSACTIONS IN BITCOIN AND ETHER, RESPECTIVELY. OUR OPEN AND FORTHCOMING PLATFORM USES BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY TO CREATE A TRANSPARENT AND DECENTRALIZED DATABASE OF RIGHTS AND RIGHTS OWNERS BY AUTOMATING ROYALTY PAYMENTS THROUGH USE OF USING SMART CONTRACTS AND CRYPTOCURRENCY.

2.) HOW DOES THE BLOCKCHAIN COMPLIMENT THE CRITERIA & SERVICES CONDUCTED BY LABELS, COLLECTIVES, AND DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION PLATFORMS LIKE TUNECORE, YOUTUBE, AND SPOTIFY?

IF THE MENTIONED DISTRIBUTION PLATFORMS ADOPT AND EMBRACE CHANGE LIKE US, WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT THEY WILL BENEFIT FROM THIS DATABASE. AS WITH ALL NEW TECHNOLOGY, BLOCKCHAIN CREATES A SHIFT IN SKILL SETS AND OPENS UP NEW OPPORTUNITIES. THERE IS AN EVER-GREATER NEED FOR CURATION AND MARKETING AND MANY INDUSTRY MEMBERS AGREE THAT RECORD LABELS COULD BETTER HELP MUSIC LOVERS TO FEASIBLY MAKE SELECTIONS FROM A BATCH CONTAINING MILLIONS OF HOURS WORTH OF MUSIC, CONTENT, (AND MERCHANDISE). AT SOME STAGE, MANY ARTISTS WILL INVARIABLY NEED TO WORK WITH THESE (AND OTHER) 3RD PARTIES MENTIONED. FURTHER DETAILS COMING SOON.

C.) VIRTUAL CURRENCY: GENERAL

1.) WHAT IS A VIRTUAL CURRENCY OR VIRTUAL TOKEN OR COIN?

A VIRTUAL CURRENCY IS A DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF VALUE THAT CAN BE DIGITALLY TRADED AND FUNCTIONS AS A MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE, UNIT OF ACCOUNT, OR STORE OF VALUE. VIRTUAL TOKENS OR COINS MAY REPRESENT OTHER RIGHTS AS WELL. ACCORDINGLY, IN CERTAIN CASES, THE TOKENS OR COINS WILL BE SECURITIES AND MAY NOT BE LAWFULLY SOLD WITHOUT REGISTRATION WITH THE SEC OR PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION.

2.) WHAT IS A VIRTUAL CURRENCY EXCHANGE?

A VIRTUAL CURRENCY EXCHANGE IS A PERSON OR ENTITY THAT EXCHANGES VIRTUAL CURRENCY FOR FIAT CURRENCY, FUNDS, OR OTHER FORMS OF VIRTUAL CURRENCY. VIRTUAL CURRENCY EXCHANGES TYPICALLY CHARGE FEES FOR THESE SERVICES. SECONDARY MARKET TRADING OF VIRTUAL TOKENS OR COINS MAY ALSO OCCUR ON AN EXCHANGE. THESE EXCHANGES MAY NOT BE REGISTERED SECURITIES EXCHANGES OR ALTERNATIVE TRADING SYSTEMS REGULATED UNDER THE FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS. ACCORDINGLY, IN PURCHASING AND SELLING VIRTUAL COINS AND TOKENS, YOU MAY NOT HAVE THE SAME PROTECTIONS THAT WOULD APPLY IN THE CASE OF STOCKS LISTED ON AN EXCHANGE.

3.) WHO ISSUES VIRTUAL TOKENS OR COINS?

VIRTUAL TOKENS OR COINS MAY BE ISSUED BY A VIRTUAL ORGANIZATION OR OTHER CAPITAL RAISING ENTITY. A VIRTUAL ORGANIZATION IS AN ORGANIZATION EMBODIED IN COMPUTER CODE AND EXECUTED ON A DISTRIBUTED LEDGER OR BLOCKCHAIN. THE CODE, OFTEN CALLED A “SMART CONTRACT,” SERVES TO AUTOMATE CERTAIN FUNCTIONS OF THE ORGANIZATION, WHICH MAY INCLUDE THE ISSUANCE OF CERTAIN VIRTUAL COINS OR TOKENS. THE DAO, WHICH WAS A DECENTRALIZED AUTONOMOUS ORGANIZATION, IS AN EXAMPLE OF A VIRTUAL ORGANIZATION.

D.) ETHEREUM: GENERAL

PLEASE NOTE: FOR U.S. CITIZENS ONLY: YOU CAN BUY ETHER (ETH) IN METAMASK. ETH IS A DIGITAL CURRENCY THAT ENABLES SHADOWBOX TO RUN. FOR EVERYONE ELSE: YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE ETH FROM AN EXCHANGE. THE EASIEST WAY IS USING COINBASE AND THEN TRANSFERRING THE ETH FROM YOUR COINBASE WALLET TO YOUR METAMASK WALLET. UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CANNOT USE SHADOWBOX WITH A COINBASE WALLET OR ANY OTHER WALLETS. YOU CANNOT USE USD/CAD WITH SHADOWBOX YET, CURRENCIES NEED TO BE CONVERTED INTO ETH FIRST. PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON.

1.) WHAT IS ETHEREUM?

ETHEREUM IS AN OPEN-SOURCE PLATFORM THAT UTILIZES BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP AND OPERATE “DECENTRALIZED” DIGITAL APPLICATIONS, (ALSO REFERRED TO AS “DAPPS”) THAT EMPOWER USERS TO CONDUCT TRANSACTIONS AND GENERATE AGREEMENTS (I.E. BUY, SELL AND TRADE GOODS/SERVICES) DIRECTLY IN A “TRUE” PEER-TO-PEER ENVIRONMENT THAT TRADITIONALLY DOES NOT RELY ON AND/OR NEED A “MIDDLE MAN” AND/ OR 3RD PARTY PROVIDER.

2.) WHAT IS ETHEREUM WORTH?

BY THE END OF 2020, ETHEREUM IS ANTICIPATED TO MORE THAN DOUBLE, TO $1488.00, GIVING ETHEREUM A TOTAL MARKET CAPITALIZATION OF APPROXIMATELY $148 BILLION. BY THE YEAR 2025, THE ETHEREUM PRICE PREDICTION AND FORECAST 2025 (THROUGH ALGORITHMIC ANALYSIS), DISPLAYS THE PRICE OF ONE (1) ETHEREUM (ETH) IN THE VICINITY OF $3844.00.

3.) WHAT’S ETHER (ETH)? WHY DO I NEED IT TO USE SHADOWBOX?

ETHER POWERS THE ETHEREUM NETWORK, WHICH IS WHAT SHADOWBOX IS BUILT ON. ETHER ACTS LIKE ANY OTHER CURRENCY; THE VALUE FLUCTUATES WITH THE MARKET. YOU NEED TO CONVERT YOUR CURRENCY (E.G. USD, CAD, GBP, ETC.) INTO ETHER TO PAY FOR THINGS ON OUR NETWORK. FOR MORE INFORMATION READ THIS SECTION AND PROCEED TO THE OFFERED RESOURCES. THANK YOU

4.) HOW DO I SEND ETHER, TO METAMASK?

FOR U.S. CITIZENS ONLY: YOU ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE ETH DIRECTLY FROM THE METAMASK WALLET USING THE COINBASE WIDGET. THIS IS MORE CONVENIENT AND DOESN’T REQUIRE YOU TO CREATE TWO ACCOUNTS. FOR EVERYONE ELSE: YOU NEED TO BUY ETH FROM AN EXCHANGE USING NORMAL FIAT CURRENCY. COINBASE IS THE EASIEST TO SETUP, YET, THE CHOICE IS ULTIMATELY UP TO YOU. COPY YOUR METAMASK ADDRESS BUT CLICKING ON THE ‘…’ THEN ‘COPY ADDRESS TO CLIPBOARD’. GO TO COINBASE AND CLICK ‘ACCOUNTS’ AND SELECT YOUR ETH WALLET AND THEN CLICK ‘SEND’. PASTE THE METAMASK ADDRESS IN THE BOX WITH THE AMOUNT YOU’D LIKE TO TRANSFER.

5.) WHY DOES METAMASK OPERATE SLOWLY?

IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TABS OPEN, METAMASK WILL SUFFER MEMORY LEAKS AND SLOW DOWN. TO FIX THIS ISSUE, CLOSE ALL YOUR TABS, RESTART THE BROWSER, AND THINGS SHOULD IMPROVE.

6.) WHAT IS A CREATOR EMBLEM?

AT THE MOMENT, A “CREATOR EMBLEMS” ARE UNDER PLANNING, HAVE NO MONETARY VALUE ATTACHED JUST YET, AND ESSENTIALLY DICTATE YOUR DIRECT SUPPORT. IF CREATOR EMBLEMS ARE INTEGRATED INTO OUR NEXT LAUNCH, THEY WILL MOST LIKELY BE LINKED TO SUBSCRIPTION PACKAGES OFFERING ACCESS TO EXCLUSIVE CONTENT/MUSIC, MERCHANDISE, SOCIAL EXPERIENCES, AND PRE SALE OFFERS.

7.) HOW CAN EMBLEMS BE SEEN?

EVENTUALLY, IN METAMASK, THE ABILITY TO CLICK ‘TOKENS’ NEXT TO ‘SENT’, WILL DISPLAY ALL OF THE INFORMATION REGARDING CREATOR EMBLEMS

8.) WHAT DOES METAMASK DO?

METAMASK ALLOWS YOU TO SAFELY ACCESS THE ETHEREUM NETWORK. IT ALSO PROVIDES YOU WITH AN ETHEREUM ADDRESS THAT WE CAN USE AS YOUR IDENTIFIER FOR REGISTERING CONTENT ON THE NETWORK.

9.) CAN LOST ACCOUNTS BE RECOVERED IF I CAN’T ACCESS MY METAMASK WALLET?

UNFORTUNATELY, “NO”. IF YOU LOSE ACCESS TO YOUR METAMASK WALLET, WE CANNOT RECOVER YOUR ACCOUNT. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE AS SHADOWBOX SMART CONTRACTS ARE INTENDED TO SECURE EACH CONTRIBUTING ARTIST, ASSURING ALL DEVELOPERS AND/OR HACKERS CANNOT EDIT, ACCESS, OR REASSIGN THEM, AND THAT OUR PLATFORM PROTECTS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND ANY DATA AROUND OWNERSHIP, FROM BEING TAMPERED WITH. UNFORTUNATELY, IT ALSO MEANS WE CAN’T SIMPLY ‘RECOVER’ ANY ACCOUNTS YOU LOSE AS WELL.

10.) DOES IT MATTER WHAT ACCOUNT I REGISTER WITH?

NO, YOU CAN USE ANY ACCOUNTS CONTAINED WITHIN YOUR METAMASK ACCOUNT. PLEASE REMEMBER, DO NOT LOSE THE KEYS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ACCOUNT. SOME USERS MAY NOT WANT TO USE AN ACCOUNT THAT HAS OTHER TRANSACTIONS OR BALANCES ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

11.) WHAT IS GAS?

‘GAS’ IS A SHORTHAND USED TO DESCRIBE THE COST OF POWERING A TRANSACTION OR CONTRACT IN ETHEREUM, WHICH IS THE BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK THAT SHADOWBOX BETA [V3] WILL BE BUILT ON.

12.) WILL UPLOADING COST ETH?

BECAUSE BLOCKCHAIN IS DECENTRALIZED, EVERY TRANSACTION IS DISTRIBUTED THROUGH MULTIPLE COMPUTERS, NOT ONE DEDICATED SERVER. THIS ENSURES EACH RELEASE IS SECURE AND ONE-OF-A-KIND. HOWEVER, IT ALSO TAKES MORE COMPUTATIONAL POWER, WHICH IS COVERED BY THE COST OF GAS. ETHEREUM TYPICALLY COMMUNICATES THIS COST IN GWEI.

13.) WHAT’S ETHER (ETH)? WHY DO I NEED IT TO USE SHADOWBOX?

ETHER POWERS THE ETHEREUM NETWORK, WHICH IS WHAT SHADOWBOX IS BUILT ON. ETHER ACTS LIKE ANY OTHER CURRENCY; THE VALUE FLUCTUATES WITH THE MARKET. YOU NEED TO CONVERT YOUR CURRENCY (E.G. USD, CAD, GBP, ETC.) INTO ETHER TO PAY FOR THINGS ON OUR NETWORK. MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON.

14.) INSTALLING METAMASK, YOUR DIGITAL WALLET?

TO USE SHADOWBOX, YOU WILL NEED TO INSTALL METAMASK, A DIGITAL WALLET. YOU WILL NEED TO PUT MONEY IN IT TO MAKE YOUR FIRST PURCHASE. NOTE: A DIGITAL WALLET LIKE METAMASK ACTS LIKE A BANK ACCOUNT—TREAT IT WITH RESPECT AND MAKE SURE YOU DON’T FORGET YOUR PASSWORD OR THE SEED WORDS.

15.) HOW DO I GET ETHER, THE DIGITAL CURRENCY?

FOR U.S. CITIZENS ONLY: YOU CAN BUY ETHER (ETH) IN METAMASK. ETH IS A DIGITAL CURRENCY THAT ENABLES SHADOWBOX TO RUN. FOR EVERYONE ELSE: YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE ETH FROM AN EXCHANGE. THE EASIEST WAY IS USING COINBASE AND THEN TRANSFERRING THE ETH FROM YOUR COINBASE WALLET TO YOUR METAMASK WALLET. UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CANNOT USE SHADOWBOX WITH A COINBASE WALLET OR ANY OTHER WALLETS. YOU CANNOT USE USD/CAD WITH SHADOWBOX YET—CURRENCIES NEED TO BE CONVERTED INTO ETH FIRST.

16.) HOW DO I SEND ETHER, TO METAMASK?

FOR U.S. CITIZENS ONLY: YOU ARE ABLE TO PURCHASE ETH DIRECTLY FROM THE METAMASK WALLET USING THE COINBASE WIDGET. THIS IS MORE CONVENIENT AND DOESN’T REQUIRE YOU TO CREATE TWO ACCOUNTS. FOR EVERYONE ELSE: YOU NEED TO BUY ETH FROM AN EXCHANGE USING NORMAL FIAT CURRENCY. COINBASE IS THE EASIEST TO SETUP HOWEVER THE CHOICE IS ULTIMATELY UP TO YOU. COPY YOUR METAMASK ADDRESS BUT CLICKING ON THE ‘…’ THEN ‘COPY ADDRESS TO CLIPBOARD’. GO TO COINBASE AND CLICK ‘ACCOUNTS’ AND SELECT YOUR ETH WALLET AND THEN CLICK ‘SEND’. PASTE THE METAMASK ADDRESS IN THE BOX WITH THE AMOUNT YOU’D LIKE TO TRANSFER. NOTE: IF YOU ARE SENDING RINKEBY ETH TO THE NETWORK, MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE ON RIKEBY IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER. THE ADDRESS IS THE SAME, BUT THE BALANCES WILL BE DIFFERENT.

17.) WHY IS METAMASK BEING SO SLOW?

IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TABS OPEN, METAMASK WILL SUFFER MEMORY LEAKS AND SLOW DOWN. TO FIX THIS ISSUE, CLOSE ALL YOUR TABS, RESTART THE BROWSER, AND THINGS SHOULD IMPROVE.

18.) WHAT DOES METAMASK DO?

METAMASK ALLOWS YOU TO SAFELY ACCESS THE ETHEREUM NETWORK. IT ALSO PROVIDES YOU WITH AN ETHEREUM ADDRESS THAT WE CAN USE AS YOUR IDENTIFIER FOR REGISTERING CONTENT ON THE NETWORK.

19.) CAN YOU RECOVER MY LOST ACCOUNT? I CAN’T ACCESS MY METAMASK WALLET?

UNFORTUNATELY, NO. IF YOU LOSE ACCESS TO YOUR METAMASK WALLET, WE CANNOT RECOVER YOUR ACCOUNT. IT’S NOT AN ISSUE OF IT BEING AGAINST OUR POLICY OR DIFFICULTY; IT IS SIMPLY NOT POSSIBLE. OUR SMART CONTRACTS SECURE EACH ARTIST SO THAT THE DEVELOPERS CAN’T EDIT, ACCESS, OR REASSIGN THEM. THIS PROTECTS YOUR MUSIC FROM HACKERS AND ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD ALTER THE DATA AROUND OWNERSHIP.

20.) CAN YOU RECOVER MY LOST ACCOUNT? I CAN’T ACCESS MY METAMASK WALLET?

UNFORTUNATELY, IT ALSO MEANS WE CAN’T SIMPLY ‘RECOVER’ ANY ACCOUNTS YOU LOSE.

21.) DOES IT MATTER WHAT ACCOUNT I REGISTER WITH?

NO, YOU CAN USE ANY ACCOUNTS CONTAINED WITHIN YOUR METAMASK ACCOUNT. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT YOU DO NOT LOSE THE KEYS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ACCOUNT. SOME USERS MAY NOT WANT TO USE AN ACCOUNT THAT HAS OTHER TRANSACTIONS OR BALANCES ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

20.) WHAT IS GAS?

‘GAS’ IS A SHORTHAND USED TO DESCRIBE THE COST OF POWERING A TRANSACTION OR CONTRACT IN ETHEREUM, WHICH IS THE BLOCKCHAIN NETWORK THAT SHADOWBOX WILL BE BUILT ON.

21.) WHY DOES UPLOADING COST ME GWEI/ETH?

BECAUSE BLOCKCHAIN IS DECENTRALIZED, EVERY TRANSACTION IS DISTRIBUTED THROUGH MULTIPLE COMPUTERS, NOT A CENTRAL SERVER. THIS ENSURES EACH RELEASE IS SECURE AND ONE-OF-A-KIND. HOWEVER, IT ALSO TAKES MORE COMPUTATIONAL POWER, WHICH IS COVERED BY THE COST OF GAS. ETHEREUM TYPICALLY COMMUNICATES THIS COST IN GWEI. CURRENTLY SHADOWBOX IS RUNNING ON RIKEBY TESTNET, FOR THAT YOU’LL NEED TEST ETHER WHICH YOU CAN ACQUIRE HERE: RINKBY FAUCET OR METAMASK FAUCET. OR SHOOT US AN EMAIL AND WE’D BE HAPPY TO SEND YOU SOME.

E.) APPLICATION: RISK & SECURITY

HOW DOES SHADOWBOX HANDLE MEASURES AND PROCEDURES PERTAINING TO THE RISK AND SECURITY PER THE COMPONENTS WITHIN THE SHADOWBOXN APPLICATION?

E.1) GENERAL: SHADOWBOX IS CURRENTLY MEASURING SECURITY AND RISK THROUGHOUT ITS ROTATING OPERATION. BY STUDYING CRYPTO-ECONOMICS, AND CONSIDERS THIS STUDY OF ECONOMIC GRAVITATION AND INFLUENCE, A TRUE POINT OF REGULATORY INSTRUCTION AND AUTHORITY TO ABIDE BY, THROUGH TOKEN LAUNCH, INITIAL GROWTH PHASES, AND BEYOND. SHADOWBOX BUILDS OUT IN BETA (V3) WITH THE INTENT OF FOCUSING ON THE DESIGN AND DISTINCTIVE NATURE BEHIND THE PROCEDURES AND RULES OF CONDUCT THAT GOVERN THE PRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION, AND CONSUMPTION OF GOODS AND SERVICES IN A DECENTRALIZED DIGITAL ECONOMY.

E.2) PROTOCOL: WITH OUR PROTOCOL, WE STRIVE FOR THE BEST; IN AN EFFORT TO ADHERE TO AN EXEMPLARY COMPLIANCE PRACTICUM THAT COVERS THE BLUEPRINTS OF FACETS LIKE RISK ASSESSMENT AND QUALITY CONTROL. WE DILIGENTLY EXPLORE THE ECONOMIC SECURITY ASPECTS OF BLOCKCHAIN PROTOCOLS, INCLUDING OUR OWN REVOLVING USE OF THEORIES AND METHODOLOGIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  • PRICE OF ANARCHY
  • GAME THEORY
  • LOTTERY
  • SOCIAL CLASS (ACTIVE AUDIENCE)
  • INCENTIVETACTIC
  • MECHANISM DESIGN
  • MARKET REPRESENTATION

WE PLAN TO STAY AHEAD OF THE GAME, WHILST FOSTERING STUDY BASED COLLABORATIONS AMONG:

  • RESEARCHERS
  • MACHINE LEARNING STUDENTS IN OUR HQ
  • DATA/COMPUTER SCIENCE STUDENTS IN OUR HQ
  • FELLOW FOUNDERS & ENTREPRENEURS
  • WORKING PRACTITIONERS WHOM SHARE THE SAME FOCUS EDUCATION
  • FELLOW FOUNDERS & ENTREPRENEURS
  • FINANCIERS & TRADING SPECIALISTS
  • WORKING PRACTITIONERS WHOM SHARE THE SAME FOCUS

E.3) SPECIFICATION: OUR ARTIST DASHBOARD ASSEMBLES DATA AROUND CREATIVE WORKS, AND THE USE OF THOSE CREATIVE WORKS CAN BE USED BY SELECT APPLICATIONS, BUT WILL ALWAYS REMAIN IN THE ARTIST’S CONTROL. WE UNDERSTAND THE YEARS OF EFFORT TAKEN ON TO DELIVER A BODY OF CREATIVE WORK, AND FANS HAVE TAKEN A LIKING TO CURATING THEIR COLLECTIONS OF THE CREATIVE WORK THEY ADMIRE. ETHEREUM, THE SAME SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS FOR FLEXIBLE LICENSING, ALSO ALLOWS US TO ENSURE THAT ARTISTS DON’T LOSE CONTROL OF THEIR IDENTITIES, FANS, AND/OR THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEY HAVE PLACED BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS COMPLETING.C.) CONTENTAS MENTIONED, IT’S A GIFT TO UTILIZE TOKEN BASED ECONOMICS THAT ADAPT EFFORTLESSLY TO OUR MODELS. FROM A FISCAL STANDPOINT, OUR DRIVE IS TO TRANSFORM OUR COIN FROM A “UTILITY BASED TOKEN TO A CONTENT-BASED SECURITY”, ALSO KNOWN AS AN ASSET-BASED SECURITY”, (WHICH IS A GENERAL TERM FOR SECURITY FEATURES THAT ARE EMBEDDED WITHIN ENTERPRISE CONTENT). FROM A RISK MANAGEMENT STANDPOINT, WE FEEL THAT THE CREATION OF NEW SECURITY ASSESSMENTS EMBODIES A GROUNDBREAKING DEPARTURE FROM TRADITIONAL ENTERPRISE CONTENT MANAGEMENT SECURITY MEASURES, THAT FOCUS ON RESTRICTING ACCESS TO A STORAGE FEATURE OR NETWORK, OR ON SECURING SPECIFIC DEVICES OR APPLICATIONS. FOR SPECIFIC “CONTENT-BASED SECURITY FEATURES”, THE SHADOWBOX NETWORK PLACES:

  • RESTRICTIONS ON WHO CAN OPEN, EMAIL, PRINT AND/OR EDIT A PIECE OF CONTENT
  • TIME LIMIT ON HOW LONG A USER CAN ACCESS A GIVEN PIECE OF CONTENT
  • EXPIRATION PER A GIVEN REPOSITORY, SIGNALING THE “CONTENT” TO BE ERASED ON OUR BEHALF, REMAINING LOCKED FOR VIEWERSHIP BY ANYONE OTHER THAN THE ORIGINAL OWNER (UNLESS SPECIFIED DIFFERENTLY.

E.4) CONTENT BASED PROTECTION: THROUGH DEVELOPMENT PHASES OF BETA (V3), WE ARE ESTABLISHING OUR “CONTENT-BASED PROTECTION AGENDA” THAT ENABLES NEW CUSTODIANS OF ENTERPRISE INFORMATION TO DEFINE AND CONTROL THE SCOPE OF ACTIONS AVAILABLE FOR USERS HANDLING THE CONTENT (I.E. RECORDS, DOCUMENTS, GOODS, AND/OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY), REGARDLESS OF THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THE CONTENT IN QUESTION. THE INCREASING PREVALENCE OF MOBILE PHONE USE AND CLOUD BASED TECHNOLOGY ARE TWO KEY DRIVERS BEHIND THE INCREASED DEMAND FOR “CONTENT-BASED SECURITY FEATURES”.

WHERE PROTECTION IS CONCERNED, OUR PLATFORM UNDERSTANDS THE LEVELS OF VIDEO INTEGRATION, AND CAN LEARN WHEN TO FLAG ASSETS FOR POTENTIAL VIOLATION; AND/OR UNWANTED MATERIAL CREATED. WE AIM TO ALWAYS MITIGATE ISSUES PERTAINING TO:

  • ADULT CONTENT RECOGNITION
  • VIOLENCE DETECTION
  • OBJECTIONABLE LANGUAGE
  • FAKE MATERIAL
  • LOGOS

THAT DON’T BELONG, AND/OR INFLICT TRADEMARK OR LICENSING VIOLATIONS, UPON OUR COMMUNITY IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, AND/OR FORM. AN INCREASE IN AUTOMATIC IDENTIFICATION WILL ASSIST IN MEETING COMPLIANCE OBJECTIVES WHILE REDUCING OUR COSTS ON MANUAL SEARCH AND IDENTIFICATION AS WE PROCEED.

E.5) INSURANCE: FROM RISK TRANSFER SOLUTIONS TO TRADITIONAL INSURANCE PLANS, WE’RE GOING BEYOND THE “CYBER SECURITY QUALITY POLICY” (AS ARE SELECT PROVIDERS), TO EFFECTIVELY CONDUCT OUR DUE DILIGENCE. SHADOWBOX, AS A PRODUCT WITH A PROSPECTIVE MULTI-CHAIN FRAMEWORK FOR DEFI PRODUCTS, WISHES TO PROVIDE ITS COMMUNITY WITH A VARIANCE OF PREMIUM INSURANCE MECHANISMS TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE MEASURES ARE DEPLOYED (TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY-AS APPLICABLE) SO USERS OF OUR DEFI PRODUCTS (AS APPLICABLE) WILL GET THEIR FUNDS BACK IN AN EXTREME CASE. WE PRIDE IN TAKING AN APPROACH TO BECOMING A:

  • SECURITY-FIRST
  • COMPLIANCE-FIRST
  • REGULATORY FRIENDLY;

EXCHANGE AND CUSTODIAN. DETAILS REGARDING POLICIES, CERTIFICATIONS, AND PROCEDURES ARE CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED, AND ARE LISTED ON THE “LEGAL” PAGE OF OUR LANDING PLATFORM.

F.) CRYPTOGRAPHIC PROCEDURE: GENERAL

FURTHER DETAILS COMING SOON. PLEASE SEE THE “TECHNOLOGY” SECTION ON OUR WHITEPAPER FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. UPDATED DATA SETS WILL BE RELEASED IN Q2 OF 2021.

G.) THE (SHBOX) DECENTRALIZED FUND: GENERAL

1.) CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THE SHADOWBOX FUND?

SHADOWBOX IS A DECENTRALIZED (ETHEREUM BASED) COMMUNITY FUND FOR CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS. THIS FUND IS ENCLOSED WITHIN OUR EVOLVING SHARED MARKETPLACE FOR MEDIA, MUSIC, AND MERCHANDISE; AND POSITIONED WITHIN THE NUCLEUS OF OUR TOKENIZED ASSET – ERC 223 (TICKER SYMBOL: SHBOX). AT THE CORE, WE ARE ESTABLISHING ONE OF THE FIRST “CRYPTO-COMMODITIES”, BY WHICH WE DILIGENTLY STRIVE TO SEE:

  • OPERATING IN ACCORDANCE WITHIN A REGULATORY FRAMEWORK BASED ON STATE & FEDERAL STATUTES, REGULATIONS, SEC/IRS ADMINISTRATIVE RULINGS, & CLEAR COMPREHENSION OF CENTRALIZED/DECENTRALIZED FINANCIAL MODELING,
  • ENFORCING EVERY EFFORT TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC (DEPOSITORS, CONSUMERS, INVESTORS, TOKEN-HOLDERS, AND/OR CONTRIBUTORS)
  • BUILDING TRUST IN OUR ABILITY TO ENHANCE THE BENEFITS OF VIRTUAL ASSET MANAGEMENT & ALTERNATIVE BANKING METHODOLOGIES.
  • DEVELOPING SYSTEMATICALLY & QUANTITATIVELY, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PEER-TO-PEER OPERATIONS THAT OUR NETWORK FACILITATES
  • REWARDING OUR CONTRIBUTORS & HOLDERS IN ETHEREUM THROUGH SMART CONTRACTS
  • PROVIDING A ROBUST FORMULA FOR PROFIT PARTICIPATION
  • INTRODUCING SAFE & SUSTAINABLE METHODS PER THE ACTS OF “UN- BANKING”, SOCIAL BANKING & VIRTUAL ASSET MANAGEMENT AND/OR
  • TRADING (AS APPLICABLE)

BLOCKCHAIN IS CREATING NEW AND INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES IS BUSINESS FUNDRAISING. PROVIDING US WITH THE MODE OF TECHNOLOGY ALTERING THE “CROWDFUNDING” SPACE AND MODEL  AGGRESSIVELY, INTURN FACILITATING OUR MODELING PROCESSES DESIGNED FOR “CROWD-CAPITALIZING”.

PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO THE RELATIVELY LOW OVERALL MARKET VALUE, SIGNIFICANT VOLATILITY AND HIGH UNPREDICTABILITY OF CRYPTOCURRENCIES, AN INVESTMENT IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES IS CONSIDERED A HIGH-RISK INVESTMENT. PROSPECTIVE PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT CRYPTOCURRENCIES ARE SUBJECT TO EXTREME MARKET FLUCTUATIONS AND OTHER RISKS INHERENT IN INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES. THE VALUE OF CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND THE INCOME DERIVED FROM THEM MAY FALL AS WELL AS RISE AND PARTICIPANTS MAY NOT RECOVER THE ORIGINAL AMOUNT INVESTED IN THE FUND. THEREFORE, THE FUND IS ONLY SUITED FOR PARTICIPANTS WHO CAN AFFORD SUCH A HIGH LEVEL OF RISK. RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS, CONCERNS, AND COMMENTS ADDRESSING TOPICS RELATED TO COSTS, PROFIT SHARE, FEES, TRADING, TRANSACTION AND REDEMPTION FEES ARE (AND/OR OTHER) ARE CURRENTLY UPDATING AND WILL BE RE-POSTING IN A TIMELY MANNER. THANK YOU.
