Investment opportunity

OKONTO provides a unique opportunity to gain exposure to previously unavailable pre-IPO shares of Gett alongside professional institutional investors and well-known global companies. OKONTO issues digital securities (GTT security tokens) backed by DVC Drive Tech Fund SP ("Drive Tech") shares, which have exposure to preferred shares of Gett and its affiliates.

Gett is planning for an initial public offering (IPO) in due course, which, according to press reports, may take place in the first quarter of 2020. When the company floats, GTT tokens will be converted into Drive Tech shares, which, subject to subsequent actions by third parties, are expected to be in turn converted into shares of Gett and credited to the brokerage accounts of investors. OKONTO will also provide an opportunity to exchange GTT tokens on the platform at the current stock price.

Both private and professional investors can take advantage of this opportunity to gain exposure to shares of Gett at a valuation of USD 1 billion. In accordance with the requirements of the Estonian Securities Act, the total pool size for non-qualified investors is limited to 2 499 999 EUR.

The issuance of tokens on the licensed OKONTO platform allows to conduct an investment transaction as effectively and quickly as possible. A single user interface includes identity verification, payments, paperwork, and a user account.

Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is a GTT token?
GTT tokens are security tokens that have exposure to shares of Gett (and its affiliates) and are issued by OKONTO. If Gett makes an initial public offering of its shares or is acquired, GTT tokens will, subject to subsequent actions and consents by third-parties, including Gett, be converted into Class A Participating Shares of Drive Tech. Drive Tech has exposure to Gett, so GTT token holders are expected to benefit from future cashflows from the initial public offering of Gett or the acquisition. Tokenization of assets is the process of issuing and accounting for a digital liability. Tokenization in general is the ability to divide the underlying asset into small units, which makes it more liquid and accessible to investors ("fractional ownership"). The use of blockchain technology provides fast, reliable, and transparent transactions in security tokens, eliminates links in the chain of intermediaries, and reduces commissions and total transaction costs.
What is an STO and security tokens?
An STO (Security Token Offerings) is a form of financing for a company by distributing tokenized securities (security tokens) to investors. Security tokens certify ownership and give the owners the right to realize their investment interests (the right to dividends, a share of profits, etc.). Security tokens are issued in accordance with the legal regulations of the jurisdictions of both the issuer and investors.
What is a digital asset purchase agreement?
The digital asset purchase agreement grants the investor the right to purchase GTT tokens, which, in accordance with the agreement, are converted into Gett shares (GT Gettaxi Limited) at a fixed rate at the time of purchase. The terms of the agreement are available on the token purchase page.
What is blockchain and how it works?

Blockchain

A blockchain is composed of blocks. Each block represent an investment transaction.

Block Payload

The block payload contains all the information about the transaction. The following fields compose the block payload:

index
Index of the block in blockchain
timestamp
Epoch timestamp of when the block was created
customer
Customer id
token
Token identifier
type
Type of transaction
units
Number of units
price
Price per unit
nonce
Nonce, randomly generated number
prev_block_id
Id of the previous block
sig
Signature of the block

Below is an example representation of a block header in JSON containing all fields described above.

{ "index": 10, "timestamp": 1555359882, "customer": 83, "token": "GTT", "type": "regular", "units": 1, "price": "415.00", "nonce": 31083, "prev_block_id": "f8dc69d6bc80b858a5f8a0b1558fad52cf1473efadecb49a4190b53892848704", "sig": "GHc5X0kSaz291YzMa0A3WHRlGvczCS6xBfx3LrJWR6aL6AGkp24vvYBPmsoV9FC3ppuQ++pTCe0XgQkXH4FCBoOdMhfOaRQFZnVrxkjg4dMuUieofG87+BK0FFxKRln9yPORldpO8ElX74toJxf2VM8n7IIZ+vYzpeTXU0+CbN0="}

Block Signing

Every block, regardless of the type, must be signed by the authority. The process of signing the transaction is identical for every block.

A signature is created by using a string of every parameter in the request (except the Signature parameter itself) in the following form <index>; <timestamp>; <customer>; <token>; <type>; <units>; <price>; <nonce>; <prev_block_id>. After it's properly formatted, it is hashed using the SHA-256 algorithm, and this hash is signed using the key pair of the authority.

A signed block generates its blockId using the following flow:

block_id = SHA-256(<index>;<timestamp>;<customer>;<token>;<type>;<units>;<price>;<nonce>;<prev_block_id>;<sig>)

The following public key may be used to verify blocks signatures:

What is an IPO?

An IPO is the initial public offering of shares of a company. "Going public" offers several advantages, such as:

  • Attracting money on more favourable terms than private companies. The public status not only allows the company to access a new source of financing, but also facilitates procurement of traditional credit resources.
  • Maximization of shareholder value. The share price of a publicly traded company is, by definition, its market value. If a company operates efficiently, shows high growth rates of both production and financial indicators, is open and transparent, its shares are attractive to investors, which means they grow in value.
  • Increased recognition and prestige. Strong corporate governance at public companies increases shareholder value, as does the enhanced visibility and prestige associated with being publicly traded. The law obliges the public company to conduct regular audits, which means that its financial activities are more transparent. Often there is an independent member of the board of directors, which makes foreign investors more confident in the company.
What is a pre-IPO?
Pre-IPO is a pre-sale of the company's shares to a limited circle of investors immediately before a public offering. The large amount of investment provides that the price paid for pre-IPO shares is much less than the estimated price at the time of the IPO.
