Terms of Service
ROKFIN, INC. ("ROKFIN," "WE," OR "US") OFFERS AN ONLINE CONTENT SHARING
PLATFORM AND COMMUNITY THROUGH ITS WEBSITE LOCATED AT ROKFIN.COM
AND OTHER ROKFIN-OPERATED SITES (COLLECTIVELY, THE "ROKFIN SITE"),
MOBILE APPLICATIONS, AND OTHER ONLINE SERVICES (COLLECTIVELY AND
INCLUDING THE ROKFIN SITE, THE "ROKFIN SERVICE"). ANY INFORMATION, TEXT, LINKS, GRAPHICS, PHOTOS, AUDIO, VIDEOS, OR OTHER MATERIALS OR ARRANGEMENT UPLOADED, DOWNLOADED OR APPEARING ON THE ROKFIN SERVICE (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO. AS "CONTENT") IS GOVERNED BY THESE TERMS. BY REGISTERING AS A MEMBER OR BY USING THE ROKFIN SERVICE IN ANY WAY, YOU ACCEPT THESE
TERMS OF SERVICE ("AGREEMENT"), WHICH FORMS A BINDING AGREEMENT
BETWEEN YOU AND ROKFIN. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS
AGREEMENT, DO NOT USE THE ROKFIN SERVICE.
1. RAE Clause
In exchange for the licensing of all creators’ Content uploaded to the Rokfin platform ("Creators")
Rokfin is bound by this agreement to burn the equivalent amount of RAE Tokens in USD
(or other fiat value) for each USD of revenue received through its platform.
Any and all future use of Creator uploaded Content is only permitted such that Rokfin
transmits burns transactions of RAE Tokens in the equivalent amount of each subscriber's
payment within 24 hours of giving access to said subscriber. Rokfin is mandated to pay
up to 5% of the subscription price as a transaction fee to a public blockchain.
“Burns” for the purpose of this TOS is the process of sending RAE Tokens to a verifiably
unspendable address. After 24 hours, Rokfin's license to distribute Content is suspended for
any subscriptions that have not had the equivalent amount of RAE Tokens burned for that
subscription until Rokfin fulfills the RAE Token debts accrued.
Although other clauses of the Terms of Service may change from time to time, the
commitment from Rokfin to burn the USD (or another fiat) equivalent of RAE Token per USD
(or another fiat) revenue is permanent and irrevocable.
1.2 Reward Methodology
The value of the network increases when there is valuable Content on the network. 72% of all value contributed to the network is distributed to Creators on every RAE Mint ("Mint") which is equivalent to 7,200 RAE tokens per Mint. 7,200 RAE Tokens will be distributed to Creators based on the value their Content brings to the network. Creators are valuable if they supply Content on the network that people pay to consume. This can happen with a user that a Creator acquires or with user from other Creators. If users do not pay to consume Content of said Creator, then Rokfin may not be the correct platform for that Creator at that time. In this scenario, the Creators will be considered an “Edge Creator” and earn a maximum of 72% of the subscription price ($9.99 as of 9/23/19) in RAE for each user they bring to the platform. One example of an Edge Creator is a Creator who uses the platform only as a fundraising mechanism, instead of acquiring users through their Content’s value.
1.3 Minting Manipulation
Manipulation of subscribers to artificially enhance the Creator’s token rewards is strictly prohibited. This may include, but is not limited to, a) full or partial reimbursement, in the form of cash or other compensation for user(s) to subscribe, offered by Creator or any entity acting on behalf of Creator; b) using fraudulent personas to subscribe to Rokfin c) other forms of fraudulent behavior directly or indirectly causing subscription acquisition and/or retention manipulation.

questions, please contact us.

END OF SUBSCRIPTION: When a paid subscription ends, the account automatically
becomes a Basic (free) account and Rokfin may disable access to or delete any Content

active until the end of the subscription term and any renewal term.
TERMINATION FOR BREACH: Rokfin may suspend, disable, or delete your account (or
any part thereof) or block or remove any Content you submitted if Rokfin determines that
