OzFinance: Connecting hubs of innovation through the Blockchain
Oz Finance leverages blockchain technology to provide individual and business residential status in one of its supported Special Economic Zones. By simply staking the Oz token, individuals and corporations can enjoy the benefits and opportunities that come with living and doing business in privacy-protected, zero-tax enabled, Special Economic Zones (ecozones).
An ecozone is an area within a country that is subject to different economic regulations than other regions in the same country. Taxes are lower, government processing is faster, and regulation is lighter, thereby offering a business-friendly environment to anyone who operates within the rules of the ecozone. Ecozones serve as an entry point for pioneering projects and businesses.
Approximately 5,400 ecozones exist in over 140 economies, with over 500 new ecozones added yearly. Although these zones provide regulatory cover and lower taxes, they lack the capability to provide credit, capital and larger market opportunities to businesses and projects that operate within.
OzFinance complements the needs of ecozones by providing capital, credit, and community to receive and share the benefits with its community; specifically privacy-protection, regulatory cover and tax-free operation. Oz aims to democratize ecozone benefits for all its members. Oz’s unique token structure and staking agreements simplify the onboarding process for individuals and corporations into ecozones, making associated benefits accessible to its members. Tokens are structured as investments into participating ecozones, thereby granting individuals the same benefits that traditionally would have only been available to high net-worth individuals and large corporations.
OzFinance’s first ecozone participant is the Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) via its exchange GlobalTradeX, located at the center of Asia within the Philippines, a few hours from Manila. This partnership sets the gold standard for subsequent global ecozone partnerships in addition to democratizing ecozone benefits. The Oz team of recognized experts is led by Chief Strategist Jin Gonzalez, Capital Markets Expert Ramon C. Garcia Jr., Tech Operations Expert, Marco R. Urera, Tech Mastermind Lim Hui Jie, Ecosystem Architect Vincent Choy, and Ecozone Specialist Jonathan Shek.
How to join the next generation of global entrepreneurs
To gain access to OzFinance’s network of Open Zone benefits, TOTOZ holders only need to stake their tokens for a minimum number of years and complete KYC requirements. The token is pegged to a fixed-dollar rate based on two simple packages: Individual or Corporation.
TOTOZ’s supply is capped at 8 quadrillion and it has unique tokenomics that reduces the supply of the tokens while increasing demand for its use; which is agnostic to price changes in the token, creating a perfect storm event for value increases. Oz’s roadmap is packed with a variety of new projects, including the launch of the Oz Blockchain Protocol, a bonding curve to accelerate community growth, and DeFi services to provide capital and credit to the ecozones and its members. Oz’s working projects also include integrating physical assets, NFTs, Metaverse applications into its ecosystem. Oz is capturing the full potential of decentralization by merging blockchain technology and crypto projects with real-world applications.
