Located in the heart of downtown San Diego sits a collection of genius math freaks, hardware hackers, creative artists and brilliant minds.

Charlie Shrem, digital currency pioneer and founder of one of its most prestigious foundations, sits on their board of advisors.

CNBC called them "a perfect enterprise play for Amazon," and they grew even closer to the e-commerce juggernaut by joining the AWS (Amazon Web Services) Partner Network.

Their mad scientist hardware hacker holds 3 US patents and helped grow a small startup into a $100 million business.

One of their developers is just 19-years-old and got the attention of Fortune 500 companies when he was only 12.

Another previously sold a company to Square, one of the world's leading payment processors.

They've made a big splash overseas in the Chinese, South Korean and European markets. They've even been featured in massive Chinese Publications, including Forbes China.

And yet, few know about this growing tech company building the world's first decentralized location network.

That is until now thanks to a core group of our team being behind XYO.

But we're not excited about XYO for that reason alone, and here's why...

Unlike some tech projects out there lacking any real substance, XYO Network was started by a location hardware business called "XY". 
Since 2012, this San Diego-based company has built over 1 million tiny location beacons that help you find and track your lost items.
 
What the brilliant minds at XYO are doing is bridging decentralized technology with the real world by tapping into these location beacons.

The result is the world’s first location-based, trustless, decentralized oracle network that isn't reliant on GPS, which costs American taxpayers a staggering $2 million per day.
HOW THE XYO NETWORK WORKS
In the world of decentralized technology, a concept exists called an "oracle". An oracle is an off-chain data source that feeds information to what are called smart contracts in order for them to execute.

For instance, one can create a peer-to-peer prediction application that awards the winner 100 ETH after a sports game concludes if Team A beats Team B by programming it to check espn.com's API one second after the game ends. In this example, espn.com is what's called an "oracle".

The idea behind XYO is similar. Except, instead of calling out to espn.com to get the score of a sports game, it enables one to call out to the real world to get an item's geolocation!

This is a game changer because XYO enables smart contracts to call out to the real world to program functionalities like, "When item A gets to XY-cordinate (latitude, longitude), then send 100 ETH to wallet address `0x1234...`

Imagine ordering something on Amazon and not a single penny is charged to your credit card until it arrives at your doorstep.
This is just one of many applications utilizing the XYO Network. 

Perhaps even more powerful will be the ability for anyone, anywhere in the world to carry one of these tiny beacons in their pocket and earn XYO every time they help verify the location of items nearby, automatically!

Here's an early look at the "mining kit" they are calling it, which features 8 of those beacons that you can earn XYO from:
What makes XYO unique in the marketplace isn't just the fact that they're backed by a real company...

Thanks to a special qualification, it's possible for anyone and not just "accredited investors" to claim their piece of the action.

This special qualification is the SEC's Reg A+ Equity program, and the company behind XYO went through the extensive process to qualify for it.

Other projects are subject to zero standards of proper disclosure and financial reporting. However, when you invest in XY, you receive the same reports and financial statements one traditionally EXPERIENCES only from mature, late-stage U.S. public companies.

This means...
  • Audited financial statements from trusted third-party accounting firms
  • Regular filings and updates previously only available to public companies
  • A fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of shareholders at all times

Bottom line: Owning XY's Equity provides you with exposure to the lucrative opportunities of this incredibly exciting space. (We think it's the future!) And if that's not enough, you get to stay involved in their journey through regular filings, shareholder letters and audited financials. 

This takes the guess-work out of wondering how your investment is doing!
For a company to have this level of oversight and accountability, is unique in the tech space and a major win for people everywhere.

But there is a catch...

XY is limited by the SEC to sell only $50 million in equity to the public.

This means that once this amount of XY Equity is sold out, you won't be able to purchase directly from the team and at the current lowest possible price per share.  
We recommend purchasing from the team directly for one major reason...

When you purchase XY Equity from the official website, 100% of the funds go directly towards developing the XYO Team and Technology.

Alternatively, if you were to purchase through a third party, your money just goes to flippers, traders and speculators. And, if XY were to go public, you could pay many times higher than the current share price!

Plus, when you do, you'll receive an EXCLUSIVE "Investors Kit" directly from the team that you can only get by purchasing directly through Decentric
It includes an XYO Network t-shirt, hat and personalized stock certificate!
Important: Because it is an SEC Qualified Reg A+ Securities Offering, once the limited supply of XY Equity sells out, it's gone forever.

Anyways, I hope this gives you a sense of XYO Network and why what they're building is so exciting!

Believe it or not, we've barely even scratched the surface with this one.
