Sex Market problems

This market is full of money, but the problems are bigger for now. That’s why we are working on sexService.

There are most common of sex market problems:

  • Trafficking and forcing to sex
  • Violence against women, lack of protection
  • Frauds and robberies
  • Legality status
  • Difficulties in finding a perfect match and particular services for a client
  • Lack of channels to advertise for sex companies and workers
  • STIs

The mentioned problems are the most common for sex industry.

sexService Advantages

Developed countries are trying to solve some of them by legalising prostitution, and offering social guaranties to the sex workers. In most other countries prostitution is legally prohibited, but there is no strict prosecution, understanding this is unstoppable and in general not harmful kind of services. And in some countries sex services are strictly prohibited.

sexService strive to resolve some of sex market problems, focusing on countries where prostitution has legal or around-legal status.

SSIO as a platform, based on a blockchain with application2 as user interface, will organize relationship between clients and service providers, targeting in general to reduce all of these problems less or more. So they can be divided in two groups:

Strong SSIO impact Weak SSIO impact
  • Violence against women, lack of protection
  • Frauds and robberies
  • Difficulties in finding a perfect match and particular services for a client
  • Lack of channels to advertise for sex companies and workers
  • Trafficking and forcing to sex
  • Legality status
  • STIs


Problems with weak SSIO impact more depends on involvement of governments.

The most obvious for place of the sexService plaform is providing an interface to clients and sex workers to find and connect each other, avoiding time loss and third parties. So sex workers and sex companies will receive a great way to present their services to potential clients through Communities and Broadcasting, and involving new kind of auditory. Clients will get a perfect tool to find the particular service and appropriate worker.

Indirectly sexService also will reduce violence against women, frauds and robberies eliminating cash as a payment system3. Though we understand it will take time, and anyone can use sexService to establish a contact, and to pay cash at a meet-up, but we are sure later (it may take years4) tokens will press out cash as a payment option.

See all the benefits, which sexService offers for all the involved in sex industry parties, including cathouses or pimps, sex related companies, sex workers, and sex clients.

Monetization and Digits

sexService will be profitable for its investors.

In case of slow market penetration, sexService platform can take 1% of sex market value in the first year of operation, which is about $2 Billion. This volume will go through sexSerice in SSIO tokens, and used for:

  • Payments for main services
  • Payments for goods and services of third party companies
  • Creating and supporting Communities
  • Broadcasting and advertising services
  • Transaction fees for Profiles, Images and Chats
  • Reputation system support

To realize the monetization conception, there are many options for sexService which will help to attract both clients and service providers:

  • has a big enough stock in its Bounty Wallet to help with resolving possible disputes, so every user or business is potentially able to receive an adequate compensation in case of a problem occurs.
  • For the first years team will compensate SSIO fees to make sexService easy to adopt and free.
  • Easy to join and easy to use. No emails or other IDs required. Decentralisation, Blockchain-proven Reputation System & Feedbacks. Application is simple to use, works on any mobile phone, and needs absolutely no installation.
  • Safe and Secure: Two-step digital transactions dramatically Reduce Risks of Frauds and Violence against users.
  • New auditory and possibilities for sex companies and sex workers
  • Bounties for women for joining the sexService
  • Many other small, but important benefits

Actually we have a strong plan how to get into the sex industry, and later we’ll tell more.

In five years sexService is able to get 10% or more of sex industry, or about 20 Billion in USD. Statistics shows that average payment for sex service in developed country starts from $50. Based on these digits, total capitalization of SSIO token should be at least $500 Millions, or 50,000,000 tokens by $10 each.

This was a reason to choose such a SSIO token specification.

Note that sex related services like webcam shows and selling images, sex dating by mutual sympathy5, and other are not accounted and should be added.
