Mobile Messaging Market:
- Worldwide the Mobile Messaging space, which includes revenue from all forms of mobile messaging, including email, is estimated to exceed $60 billion dollars annually
- Worldwide Mobile Instant Messaging revenues, which is limited only to the Instant Messaging space, are estimated to be $3 billion annually
- Worldwide Instant Message user accounts are expected to grow to 3.8 billion by the end of 2019.

- Over 80% of American adults text, making it the most common cell phone activity
- The average Millennial exchanges an average of 67 text messages per day;

To participate in this large and growing market, DatChat’s current monetization plans include “in app” purchases for premium features such as the transmission of videos and large group chats. Other in app purchases may include the sale of digital stickers, which has generated a significant portion of “Line’s” revenue. DatChat is also working on an enterprise solution that could be marketed to companies and the long-term monetization strategy of expanding the platform to premium solutions for email.

“The Mobile Instant Messaging market is a multi-billion market that is growing rapidly,” stated Mr. Anthony Hayes, CEO of Spherix, Inc. “However, the market is still missing the vital privacy and security that DatChat offers its users. As noted in the 2016 KPCB Report on Internet Trends, messaging is evolving from simple social conversations to business related conversations and that messaging apps are increasingly becoming a second home screen. We believe this represents a growth opportunity for the Company. Management is extremely pleased to be at the forefront of this booming marketplace and expects to establish itself as a leader within the industry for years to come.”
