1 What is PermianChain?

PermianChain is a blockchain enabled FinTech startup company offering a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for exploration & production companies (upstream) to launch their own Security Tokens against their proven oil campaigns. PermianChain also provides upstream and midstream companies a solution to trade commodities under a Closed-Loop-B2B-Exchange for more efficient and transparent trading.

2 What Problem is PermianChain trying to solve?

PermianChain is focused on solving the high barriers to entry in oil & gas investments while bringing increased liquidity to the industry. Many private oil and gas opportunities are structured with premiums and upfront fees. That means the advisors and brokers make most of the profit by just placing investors’ money in the deal. Not only does this mean fewer of each investor’s dollars go into the deal than in other structures, it means the offering company’s motivation is to fill the deal fast for fast profits. PermianChain solves the stagnation in private equity oil investments and allows for a more secure, transparent and liquid approach to investing in proven reserves.

3 How is PermianChain hoping to solve this problem?

Through the use of smart contracts, we can now replace paper and complex agreements that are cumbersome, difficult to transfer and can be hard to track for the average person and even for sophisticated investors. Our solution for commodity investing (mainly in oil) would be to switch to a digital system along the lines of Ethereum, but which represents equity in the proven reserves, starting with the PERMIAN Token (XPR).

4 Which blockchain networks are you using?

The PermaChain platform is being developed using IBM Hyperledger Fabric. Meanwhile token issuances are made using ERC20 standard on the Ethereum network

5 When will it be ready?

The protype is ready and available for platform prospects to view upon getting white-listed (see Get White-Listed button above). The MVP is under development and expected to be completed by Q2 2019.

6 Who is your legal counsel?

We are working with King & Spalding, a global legal specialist.

7 What is a Security Token?

Security Tokens are essentially financial securities and therefore, they are backed by tangible assets, profits, or company revenue. Security Tokens are subject to regulations in the issuers home jurisdiction.

8 What is the difference between Security Token Offerings (STOs) and the traditional capital market?

- Micro-investments become possible (subject to regulations).
- Much more inexpensive to offer Security Tokens
- Online management of Investor communication and share registry possible
- Automated dividends distribution is possible
- Numerous customization options based on the need
- Open to worldwide markets (subject to regulations)
Capital Market
- Restricted to Accredited Investors and Venture Capitalists
- Costs could run into millions
- Maintaining ownership records is pretty outdated and expensive
- Sophisticated third-party vendors required to manage dividends distribution
- Pretty restrictive
- Geography restrictions apply

9 What is your strategy for the PERMIAN Token (XPR) to inrease token value?

Profits made from the oil reserves that are registered on the PermianChain are retained by the platform issuers to reinvest in further development and production of proven reserves to increase token value. Distribution of profits may occur at certain times, such profits will be distributed in form of ETH to PERMIAN Token (XPR) holders. This ultimately increases demand for the token on exhanges, increasing the price as we keep tokens scarce.

10 How will the funds raised from the PERMIAN Token (XPR) be utilised?

During the Security Token Offering (STO) period, the there will only be 1,000,000,000 tokens issued for sale out of the 10 billion tokens generated. 65% of funds raised will go into the acquisition of proven oil reserves, 20% of funds raised will be invested into further development of the PermianChain platform and invest into further R&D for Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Blockchain. 10% of funds raised will be allocated towards hiring the best talent, maintaining administrative requirements, regulatory licenses, legal and related costs. 5% of funds raised will be dedicated for marketing and advertising efforts.

11 How do I buy PERMIAN Tokens (XPR)?

13 How can I pay for tokens?
