Please check your local government regulations before attempting to exchange REFER Memberships. We at SmartRefer strongly recommend you keep REFER Memberships for use primarily on our platform.

1) The highest in user security, through de-centralized servers.

2) Ability to verify candidates credentials globally.

3) The ability to incentivize employees to send referrals to their connections and employers, through our ERC 223 REFER Memberships. This will allow our platform to be used globally, with the opportunity for people to send referrals from anywhere on the planet.

Q: Are REFER Memberships a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin? If I invest and hold them will I be rich?

A: REFER Memberships are a key component of the SmartRefer platform. Anyone who obtains REFER are given membership privileges our platform, exactly like a gym membership or pass.

REFER were created for the sole purpose of being used on our platform, akin to the video game coins you receive at the arcade when you want to play a game. Without them, there would be no way to use the blockchain effectively, thus greatly decreasing the opportunities for users. The memberships themselves power our platform, much like gas in a vehicle. Any increase in the value of REFER Memberships is secondary and incidental. We at SmartRefer recommend you do not purchase REFER Memberships if you have no intention of using them on our platform.
