Phunware Announces Sale of Phun Utility Token to International Markets

Austin, Texas [June 20, 2019] (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, today announced Phun utility tokens are now available for purchase in select international markets.

“Phun is a new utility token that supports our ecosystem’s commercial launch worldwide and enables the international community to get more involved as we drive towards mainstream adoption and future exchange listings,” said Randall Crowder, Chief Operating Officer of Phunware.

To comply with the current regulatory landscape, Phunware recently launched its dual token structure. While Phun is a utility token that enables consumers to monetize their digital activity as they engage in profitable behavior with brands, PhunCoin remains a compliant security token that enables consumers to monetize their digital identity and offers token holders a PhunCoin dividend.

“PhunCoin empowers consumers and seeks to ensure that they are properly compensated for their personal data and information, while Phun allows brands to unlock many of the features and capabilities of Phunware’s cloud platform for mobile to better engage consumers,” said Alan S. Knitowski, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Phunware. “Brands are now able to map, track and reward certain activities within their existing mobile ecosystem such as completing surveys, engaging with branded content and participating in marketing campaigns.”

Given the regulatory environment, Phun will initially only be available outside the United States and Canada. Investors outside the United States and Canada can purchase Phun by registering on https://buy.phuntoken.com/.
