STO - significant enterprise sales expansion
This ICO is a Securities-Token Offering (STO). Your investment receives equity in an operating cyber-security business with existing sales and incredible future potential. This STO is government-regulated; your investment earns dividends, delivers ownership rights, and grants access to detailed financial performance and reporting.
CryptoPhoto owns both granted and pending patents across more that 120 different aspects of cyber-authentication and anti-fraud technologies. Our technology has won more than a dozen prestigious awards, offers high-security and UX benefits unmatched by any competitors, and we have valuable banking integration agreements covering many of the world's largest banks signed and ready to deliver.
Our mission is to eradicate the world of fraud, while also making it faster and easier for you to access your everyday online resources with the ultimate in high-strength authentication.
Welcome to the $153bn global cyber-security market on the blockchain.
Read more about our project.
CryptoPhoto is not a dream, it's here and it exists already. This page explains our Initial Security Token Offering (STO).
The following documents explain our technology in depth. The rest of this site explains where
our security technology fits into the marketplace and landscape.
CryptoPhoto solves, with great effectiveness, the world's largest unsolved security problem today: human-factor exploits.
Across all industries, 9 out of every 10 security incidents are attributable to the security vulnerabilities that CryptoPhoto eradicates, including phishing, social-engineering, scams, and credential-theft malware.

Our STO funds will be spent generating sales.
CryptoPhoto began development in 2007 and is today a high-quality, multi-million dollar development investment funded by it's owner, Chris Drake, along
with (equity free) government grants and generous employee and staff concessions and donations. It is not a "Minimal Viable Product" (MVP), and indeed,
in security, there's no such thing as "Minimal". It all needs to be in place, and working properly,
or it's no use at all. This is why CryptoPhoto has taken 11 years to build, but it's done now, and we're enjoying our first early sales.
What we did not anticipate, was the cost of sales: to successfully close enterprise, government, military, or big-business security sales, you need an expert and experienced enterprise-class security-centric sales team. As excellent
and comprehensive as CryptoPhoto already is, it turns out that it does not sell itself.
Sales professionals are available, but they're expensive. Our pricing more than adequately recovers our costs, but as the old saying goes: it takes money to make money, which is how we will spend the bulk of your investment.
Our STO funds will be predominantly spent generating sales. Not on development, not on administration, not paying off VCs, Angels, or investors (there are none). Revenue-production through sales and supporting our salesforce is our primary purpose for, and use of, STO funds.
CryptoPhoto will operate as the world's first open and fully transparent corporate entity.
Our STO is selling you equity. As a CP (“CryptoPhoto Token”) owner, you literally own part of our business, its assets, and its technologies, which includes multiple high-value granted and pending patents and perpetual rights to company profit distributions. There will never be more than 100% equity, and our contract contains no provision for dilution. As a CP owner, you are literally a shareholder, making CP potentially one of the most tangibly valuable assets available in the crypto-marketplace today.
The unit of cryptocurrency issued under our open-contract and during our STO will be known as a "CP". Note carefully that CryptoPhoto's security solution makes use of an authentication device and datastructure which is called a "Security Token", and that the term for cryptocurrencies backed by equity is also "Security Token" - We are both of those, but to prevent confusion, we are using the term “CP” rather than "Token" in reference to the contract and STO.
All income and disbursements in the operation of CryptoPhoto will be performed in units of CP, and the ledger will be globally open and available, including wages, sales, expenses, commissions and dividends etc.
Post STO, CryptoPhoto will operate as the world's first open and fully transparent corporate entity. All financial activities will take place on the blockchain, with sufficient embedded detail to facilitate fully autonomous company financial reports and tax/government filing activities, with no accountants needed, and minimal effort for auditors.
Obviously, in the early days, our traditional customers will expect to make transactions in fiat currencies, like USD, EUR etc, and our modern customers may wish to transact using other cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, Ethereum or many others. To cater for these requirements, we have built a separate and secure exchange, protected, of course, by CryptoPhoto security.
Our exchange is an open-source, simple interface which lets you buy and sell CPs immediately.
With convenient serendipity, all the facilities required to operate an open-company on the blockchain, happen to exactly coincide with those required to operate an online crypto exchange: Taking and Making fiat payments, exchanging
between them and other cryptocurrencies, and exchanging between different cryptocurrencies alike.
Our exchange is an open-source, simple interface which lets you buy and sell CPs immediately, as well as trade them for other cryptocurrencies, with low fees and best-in-the-industry high-security. It is freely available to other
organisations who might also wish to run in the "open and transparent" style, like charities, social-enterprises, clubs, honest startups. An added benefit we have, as the authors, is that our CP will be automatically listed and
tradeable on their exchanges too, while we additionally earn revenue from the CryptoPhoto protection of their exchange and business and a small proportion of their commissions.
You face no risk that our CP's might take a long time, or never appear, on 3rd party crypto-exchanges, because from the moment our STO begins, our order book opens, making CP's instantly tradeable worldwide.

Should we reach our hard-cap, STO holders will own 20% of our business, and the $78.75M total investment will help us expand our paying-customer userbase more quickly.
6% Adviser and developer options; locked for 6-months. Vests gradually, after lockup, over 12 months (no sudden token influx).
Balance - Reserved. Not for sale, locked for 12-months or earlier if approved by majority vote of shareholders (you). If later offered for sale, a minimum of 3 months notice of intention will be published.
Note: it is not anticipated that this balance will be sold - future project funding will be sourced through sales, not investors.
