Powering Creativity on the Blockchain
Creative Mint™ is building a platform to launch and accelerate the growth of purpose-driven brands. Our intention is to democratize and decentralize creative intellectual property (“IP”) rights transactions by leveraging the power of blockchain technology. The Creative Mint Platform will contribute directly to the success of each Creative and brand development partner by facilitating security token offerings (“Token Offerings”) of Creative Currency™, entitling the holders to share in the royalties and revenue derived from the underlying IP. Creative Mint is not currently raising capital.

The Creative Mint Platform can be applied to any creative industry—fine arts, textiles, winemaking, and 3D printing, to name a few—and the opportunity is only limited by the boundaries of imagination. By fueling creativity, the Creative Mint Platform promotes business development, economic prosperity, and community cohesion and engagement.

Use of Proceeds
Some of the proceeds of the Token Offering will be used to finance the operations of the Creative Mint Platform and the resources shared by the brand ecosystems. The balance of the proceeds will be used to germinate purpose-driven brands with the goal of growing some to the point that they are ready to launch Token Offerings on the Creative Mint Platform.
The Company anticipates it will allocate the Token Offering proceeds as follows:
- 33% for germinating Brand Ecosystem media and merchandise
- 33% for marketing and cultivating the engaged and loyal Brand Ecosystem communities
- 14% for talent acquisition
- 10% to complete and enhance the Creative Mint Platform
- 10% for administrative expenses and professional services
Creative Mint intends to have a fully operational proof-of-concept platform that demonstrates all of the features and functionality of the enterprise version before it seeks funding pursuant to its Token Offering. The Company anticipates completing its pre-Token Offering by May 30, 2019. While it is preparing for and during the CMNT Token Offering, Creative Mint will germinate the initial brand ecosystems and preparing them for their own Token Offerings.
