|PhunCoin & PhunToken||PhunCoin & PhunToken
During 2018 and 2019, PhunCoin, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary, launched offerings of rights to acquire a token denominated as "PhunCoin" (the "Rights"). PhunCoin, Inc. accepts payment in the form of cash and digital currencies for purchases of the Rights. The amount of PhunCoin to be issued to the purchaser is equal to the dollar amount paid by the purchaser divided by the price of PhunCoin at the time of issuance of PhunCoin during the launch of the Token Ecosystem (as defined below) before taking into consideration an applicable discount rate, which is based on the time of the purchase.
Through March 31, 2021, we received aggregate net cash proceeds from our Rights offerings of $1,202. Proceeds from the Rights are recorded as PhunCoin deposits in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.
PhunCoin is expected to be issued to Rights holders the earlier of (i) the launch of PhunCoin’s, Inc.’s blockchain technology enabled rewards marketplace and data exchange (“Token Ecosystem” or "Token Generation Event"), (ii) one (1) year after the issuance of the Rights to the purchaser or (iii) the date PhunCoin, Inc. determines that it has the ability to enforce resale restrictions with respect to PhunCoin pursuant to applicable federal securities laws. Proceeds from the Rights offering are generally not refundable if the Token Generation Event is not consummated. We currently anticipate that PhunCoin will be issued to the holders of the Rights in 2021; however, there can be no assurance as to when or if we will be able to successfully launch the Token Ecosystem.
Additional information about PhunCoin is included in Note 10, "PhunCoin and PhunToken" of the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.
PhunToken ("PHTK")During the second quarter of 2019, Phunware announced the launch of a separate token, PhunToken, which is meant to act as a medium of exchange within the Token Ecosystem. PhunToken will be issued through a separate, wholly-owned subsidiary, Phun Token International, available initially only to persons outside of the United States and Canada. Consumers may receive PhunToken for actively engaging in marketing campaigns; developers and publishers may receive PhunToken for utilizing Phunware’s loyalty software development kit in order to better engage, manage and monetize their consumers; and brands will gain access to more relevant, verifiable data by accessing Phunware’s data exchange and using Phun for their own loyalty programs. As of March 31, 2021, we had not issued or sold any PhunToken.
