RoMaD platform: economic model

The Defense token contains a built-in license for ROMAD Endpoint protection. The built-in license can be transferred to 3rd parties and the Defense token owner will get the income from the license.

1.  How many attacks are made on one Internet user annually?

To calculate the yearly attack rate on one user, we utilize the following reports data:
1.1.  Symantec. Symantec data [1]. are adjusted by taking into consideration the amount of spam-messages containing malware attachments (that are not recorded in the Symantec report).
1.2. Microsoft. A Microsoft report [2] does not have the info on a user’s attack rate, but it reflects the info on the encounter-rate on various types of malware. «...Encounter rate is the percentage of computers running Microsoft real-time security products that report a malware encounter…» ([2], page 13). The report has the info on encounter rate in various countries/regions, types of malware and certain malware families. We use the encounter-rate extrapolation by the different malware types to calculate the attack’s quantity.  
1.3. McAfee. The data contain the number of the malware attack’s repelled by McAfee [3] and the quantity of McAfee security systems installations [4], that allows calculating an attack rate per one user.
On average, worldwide, one device is exposed to 7.7653 attacks per year

2. What is the cost of the defense for one user’s device?

RoMaD  is the first company in cyber security where the user pays for the repelled attacks only.

If there are no attacks, the user does not pay.
The equivalent of one USD is withdraw from the license balance for the successfully repelled malware attack.
Thus, the average cost for the endpoint defense is 8 USD a year.
If the cost exceeds 12USD, the protection against upcoming attacks is free of charge untill the end of the year.

3. What income does one ROMAD client bring yearly?

A Defense token owner receives a yearly income. The Defense token owner has two options of getting profit:

  • Option 1: if the Defense token owners transfer the license to the users themselves, they get 60% of the cost of a single repelled attack.
  • Option 2: if RoMaD company transfers the license to the users, then the owner of the token receives 40% of the cost of a single repelled attack.The model project the following average profit of the Defense token owner per year:
Option 1 4.334229 USD for 1 Defense token
Option 2 2.889486 USD for 1 Defense token
