crowdsourced cybersecurity network
Every bit of information on systems built to protect your web assets against cyber attacks is priceless. Imagine this information being combined from a vast number of sources and updated in real time, creating an AI-powered defense system – SharkNet.
The fuel powering this system is SharkGate token ($SHARK) automatically rewarding data providers in real-time in exchange for providing information. Additionaly, access to SharkNet requires its participants to hold a specific number of $SHARK, creating a constant demand for the tokens.
How does the SharkGate
token ($SHARK) work?
SharkGate’s Plugin users anonymously share attack data with the SharkNet network. In return, they receive weekly/hourly protection updates, based on the purchased plan. $SHARK holders additionally receive tokens in reward, based on the data contribution information uploaded by SharkNet. SharkGate’s Plugin users buy and stake $SHARK tokens. Security companies, receiving ranked threat data as a commercial service, can also buy and hold a certain number of $SHARK in order to unlock product discounts.
Every month we plan to onboard 300 new plugin users
They are expected to purchase the following USD-worth of tokens in order to receive tokenised rewards
SharkGate token ($SHARK)
Why will the value of $SHARK keep on growing?
SharkGate will offer a carefuly well-balanced token supply and demand ratio. The token supply side will be balanced by discounts and special offers provided to SharkNet participants who are purchasing access to the network, in exchange for holding a certain amount of $SHARK tokens.
With the projected funds allocation, described below, it is estimated that we will be signing in approximately 300 new users every month to our platform. Token rewards are available ONLY to $SHARK holders, and significant discounts are available only after purchasing and staking their amount for at least 12 months. The table below offers insights into our projected, monthly token sales estimations, based solely on the SharkGate clients’ purchases for the usability purposes.

Benefits for the $SHARK holders
With a growing value of $SHARK, staking them aims to provide the SharkNet participants – Plugin users as well as Security companies – with a return on the initial commercial investment, by acquiring access to the SharkNet’s resources.
Additionally, holding $SHARK allows them to take advantage of the discounts on SharkNet access as well as future additional services.

Q2 2023 – Further development of Deep Sea components
Allowing Deep Sea to coordinate the memory of each attack encountered on any site worldwide and thus enabling any site on the distributed network to mount a strong response if the attack is attempted again. Creating ‘adaptive’ rules that evolve during the lifetime of the blockchain as an adaptation to a threat and preparing protection for future similar, but yet unseen, attacks. To ensure the SharkNet ecosystem can scale to millions of plugins worldwide, distributed processing techniques are used.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can be the future value of the $SHARK token?
The future value of the $SHARK token is strictly correlated with the number of API clients aquired. We expect that approximately 30% of them would become incentivised by the prospects of holding and using $SHARK tokens. We simulated the impact this might have on the future token price in the $SHARK token section of this website (Why will the value of SHARK keep on growing?). Please beware that the numbers presented are examples only and should not be considered as a promise or guarantee from our end.
When will the public sale start?
Currently we expect the sales to start in Q4 2023 with the exact date to be announced soon. We reserve the right to modify this time frame though, depending on the market conditions.
What kind of token is $SHARK?
$SHARK is a utility token to operate on the BSC blockchain. The utilities available to its holders are (but not restricted) discounts on purchasing SharkGate’s services, unlocking access to challenges, and NFTs (which in turn are to unlock further utilities and rewards).
What are the mechanics and amounts of token rewards or the API clients sharing their anonymous attack data?
The exact formula will be presented soon. It is to be based on the amount of shared data and the scope of their usage in developing the defense strategies within the SharkNet system.
