How many funds have been allocated towards the developement and deployment of the platform?
Founders have already contributed $4.2mln USD towards the development and deployment of the platform
Why did OSA pick retail?
Systematic inefficiencies cost the retail industry approximately $500 billion USD annually.* OSA DC neutralizes these inefficiencies by uniting disconnected parties (manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and third parties) within a single Ecosystem, thus fixing three major issues that hinder the retail industry today:
1) Inventory tracking: the blockchain will reduce overstocking and understocking, problems that cost retailers $400 billion USD every year*
2) Consumer trust: the blockchain’s immutable ledger will provide more reliable product data to prevent businesses from abusing consumer trust
3) Product Waste: OSA DC will minimize supply chain product waste that loses retailers $100 billion in potential profits annually
What is the purpose of the OSA token?
The OSA utility token has a trifold purpose:
1) Network fuel: to drive the blockchain's ledger and smart contract functionality and enable real time data collection, storage, enrichment, and analysis
2) Payment method: for inumerable business-to-business transactions and business-to-consumer services within OSA platform
3) Platform reward: for data sharing and as an incentive for brand-specific promotional campaigns
What can consumers use the OSA token for?
Consumers will be able to use OSA tokens only within OSA platform in a variety of ways:
- Pay for B2C services
- Receive exclusive promotional offers
- Purchase groceries

Tokens will be distributed 60 days after the token sale ends.
What will the product data allow consumers to do?
It will assit them in making intelligent and conscious purchasing decisions to help them to
1. save money
2. save time
3. stay healthy by avoiding unhealthy and hazardous foods and leading healthy lifestyle
In addition, OSA DC will encourage consumers to generate and share valuable consumer data (purchasing trends, product information, etc.), which will assist manufacturers and retailers with producing better products and providing better services for their customers.
How will the consumers benefit?
Consumers will
1) spend less time for doing shopping, as the products of their choice will always be available on retail shelves, fresh and complimented with correct price stickers and comprehensive consumer information including complete ingredients list as welll as up to 150 product attributes;
2) spend less money for their products as the manufacturers of consumer goods and retailers will re-invest some of the incremental margins generated with help of OSA DC solutions, into price, in the very competitive environment;
3) stay healthy - by having access to consistently fresh products and, having comprehensive product information at their finger tips, thanks to the personal shopper assistant, will be able to avoid dangerous, unhealthy and allergic products. Consumers will be rewarded in OSA coins for their contributions to the platform’s data landscape, and will use OSA coins for a variety of services, including in-store purchases.
Is there more information available about masternodes?
We will provide the detailed layout of our masternode architecture after our technology team completes assessment of the technical requirements. This will most likely occur before this token sale completes.
The reasons why it takes time are:
(1) given the forecasted volume of transactions our blockchain needs to be high load resistant;
(2) several new technology opportunities have opened recently and we are currently in the midst of business negotations regarding possible future blockchain technology partnership
Is there any "proof of funds" for softcap contributions being paid by investment funds and/or angel investors?
We do not have the soft cap as we are an existing successful business with the developed and implemented solution. Founders have contributed $4,2 million into the business since the day of its inception.

Will users receive rewards automatically?
Absolutely! Users will automatically receive rewards in their wallet when they commit useful data to the network. These tokens can be used to purchase additional B2C services, products, etc.

What is the role of the consumer in the OSA platform?
For the end consumer, the platform will be used for both incoming and outcoming data flow. The consumer can alert the system to supply chain issues like missing or spoiled goods, getting paid with tokens in return. Since the platform is based on a global product catalogue, the consumer will be able to find out precise information on the ingredients and origin of a product, make selections of the ingredients he/she wants to exclude from his/her diet, and choose products according to specific filters. Basically, this is an AI assistant that will regulate your consumption according to the conditions you set.
Is there a KYC process, and if so, what is the procedure?
Every contributor to the OSA token sale will have to pass KYC procedure in order to retrieve tokens to an ERC20 compatible wallet.

In particular, internal screening procedures prescribed are based on the standards of the Financial Action Task Force, the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force, the European Union, and the United Nations local legislation requirements. We developed several application forms with regard to the type of clients (whether they be a business, an individual, or a legal entity or intermediary) requesting pertinent data and supporting documentation. The KYC Policy & AML Measures establish different categories of clients and transactions for risk management purposes (i.e. high, medium and low risk). They also define the categories of clients prohibited from dealing with us and other categories of clients that have specific application requirements. We have contracted KYC-providers to take charge of our KYC Policy & AML Measures, as well as our record-keeping and performance of other related KYC & AML tasks. These providers are fully GDPR-compliant and posses the relevant technical infrastructure to execute KYC-functions.

What are OSA Token lockup conditions?
22,5% of tokens allocated to contributors during the public pre-sale and public sale, including bonuses accrued, will be locked for ten months following the token distribution. Upon the end of each month following the token distribution, 10% of the locked tokens, including bonus tokens, will be gradually released from the lock-up. 
The remaining 77,5% of tokens will be locked for twelve months following the tokens distribution and gradually unlocked during a 4 year period; during this time, tokens will be released every twelve months. Of those, only 11,5% can be unlocked within the twelve months after the token distribution to be spent on platform development needs--this is contingent on positive market dynamics. 
Tokens allocated to partners and advisors will be gradually unlocked starting the 2nd year after tokens distribution according to individual agreements. Tokens allocated to team and early backers will be locked for a period of 1 to 4 years with a gradual lock-out. 
The number of Tokens released from the lock-up will correlate with the platform development milestones and the growth of OSA's services.

What is OSA DC's smart contract security like? Given the vulnerability some Ethereum smart contracts have featured, I'm concerned about OSA DC being vulnerable to instances like the DAO attack, wherein more than $50 million in ether was stolen
OSA DC is developing its own private blockchain. This takes time. After completing the token sale, we will release the OSA smart contract kit. 
In the meantime, Hacken.io provides OSA DC with a suite of cybersecurity services, such as smart contract audits. This audit will evaluate whether the OSA DC platform's code has been written in a way that ensures readability, dependability, and security. Also, it will assess if the codebase follows the best practices for smart contract development. 
Hacken.io also provides anti-phishing security features. This matters most for our contributors. Hacken identifies phishing content hidden within websites, emails, social networks and other forms used for accessing sensitive data. 
The DAO attack was made possible by a vulnerability in DAO's code; its code suffered from a "recursive calls" bug which enabled the attacker to drain more than $50 million worth of ether. OSA DC developers are complying with the most vetted security measures available to avoid any pitfalls.
What is OSA doing to protect my data/currency during token sale transactions?
Hacken.io provides OSA with objective audits that strengthen the platform's smart contract code, as well as expert insight into the strength of OSA DC's overall architecture and design. Working with Hacken, we've scanned our code for any vulnerabilities to ensure that all your sensitive data and all your funds are secure during every step of the ICO process. In addition, Hacken provides OSA and its users with anti-phishing software to make sure that they don't accidentally expose any sensitive information to hackers while participating in the token sale.

For the end consumer, the platform will be used for both incoming and outcoming data flow. The consumer can alert the system to supply chain issues like missing or spoiled goods, getting paid with tokens in return. Since the platform is based on a global product catalogue, the consumer will be able to find out precise information on the ingredients and origin of a product, make selections of the ingredients he/she wants to exclude from his/her diet, and choose products according to specific filters. Basically, this is an AI assistant that will regulate your consumption according to the conditions you set.

There is information on OSA's website about big brands using OSA's services. Are these partnerships true?
Yes they are. We are grateful to our first adopters, those companies that started using OSA in 2016, including Coca-Cola in Russia. 
These corporations have vast resources, but they focus on their core business models using software solutions provided by the likes of SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, and OSA to solve particular issues.

In addition, OSA DC will encourage consumers to generate and share valuable consumer data (purchasing trends, product information, etc.), which will assist manufacturers and retailers with producing better products and providing better services for their customers.
Is there more information available about masternodes?
We will provide the detailed layout of our masternode architecture after our technology team completes assessment of the technical requirements. This will most likely occur before this token sale completes.
The reasons why it takes time are:
(1) given the forecasted volume of transactions our blockchain needs to be high load resistant;
(2) several new technology opportunities have opened recently and we are currently in the midst of business negotations regarding possible future blockchain technology partnership
Is OSA DC's image recognition already live?
We already use image recognition in our daily services. The idea is to make the consumer an equal partner in data collection.
Is OSA DC's AI already working?
Our AI is fully functional, and it is used daily to collect and analyze data from manufacturers and retailers to provide solutions.
What technologies does OSA DC use?
Artificial intelligence (deep learning and machine learning) for improving supply chain logistics
Blockchain and smart contracts for product tracking and services
Decentralized processes management
Product master data catalogue for inventory
Image recognition for ID
What is the Image Recognition?
Image Recognition is an innovative technology provided by the Neuromation platform for the retail sector. It uses deep neural networks for automatic recognition of merchandise on store shelves, which our AI uses to optimize product turnover.
How does OSA work?
We collect a unique set of data in order to create models for expected product demand and to diagnose what is causing stock-outs and product shortages. We call this practice Data Sensing, our own innovative approach that strengthens the best practices in retail.
