World Wi-Fi Benefits for Internet users
- World Wi-Fi will enable the maximum area of residential housing worldwide using home routers, and also stimulate distribution of free Internet access in high traffic areas: cafes, bars, restaurants, playgrounds and sports grounds.
- The World Wi-Fi project will enable free Wi-Fi access worldwide. The Internet access will become free as the guest user will just need to view a small ad (10–15 seconds).
- The World Wi-Fi platform provides for an accrual of tokens for ad views. And offer the opportunity to earn cryptocurrency by sharing Wi-Fi and displaying the ads on a router access point which the router owner already has. .
World Wi-Fi Benefits for advertisers
- World Wi-Fi enables the advertiser to select the audience based on search history, gender, age, social media profile, location (with levels of sophistication for such details as exact street, house or apartment). It is important to note that unlike the ad in search or social networks, a Wi-Fi user will focus on the ad video or banner displayed before accessing the Web. The cost of such advertising is much lower than that of advertising in search engines or social media outlets.
- On the World Wi-Fi platform, every advertiser can monitor in their account the most comprehensive and 100% reliable statistics. The history of all ad views are recorded on the blockchain and may not be fabricated.
Market and opportunity
The level of Internet connectivity in developing countries is increasing rapidly. Online advertising market is growing every year. Modern advertising networks, e.g. AdSense, charge high fees. Advertising sales people need to share 30-50% of the revenue with the platform, and this in turn is spent on compensation of financial and bureaucratic costs of the advertising network.
Today, only a few companies and some popular bloggers and influencers whose platforms have a large amount of traffic may count on significant advertising income. World Wi-Fi provides access to a wide audience for the advertisers by means of connection to many small private routers and sites. The owners of Internet access points are able to earn money by means of broadcast of these advertisements. It is a natural market, data based, geo location based and need based. This is the way the advertising market inside the World Wi-Fi network is planned.
No doubt that the project is interesting for investments both in short and long terms.

Token applying (5 out of 5 points)
WeToken (WT) is an in-house currency of the platform World Wi-Fi. All transactions within the platform will be made only in WeToken. World Wi-Fi PTE, Ltd will act as the issuer of the tokens.
The token pricing will depend on the World Wi-Fi penetration rate in the advertising market. The higher the penetration of the advertising market is, the higher the token price is. This is due to the fact that the token sale market is growing continuously, and the number of tokens remains fixed. Given the development of the World Wi-Fi project, the advertisers will buy more and more tokens on the market to be able to launch advertising campaigns.
1 WeToken = 10 advertising impressions in World Wi-Fi = $0.1 – at TOKEN SALE stage.
Today, the mid-market price of 10 targeted advertising impressions in Wi-Fi networks amounts to $0.30. Therefore, the original issue discount is included in the token price during the TOKEN SALE.
The use of tokens absolutely reasonable in this economic and logical model.
