One of the major factors that sets Mojo apart is our Guaranteed Retirement Payout, based completely on an objective, published, statistical formula. That’s a benefit you really can’t find anywhere else in the world of investing.
Here’s how it works:
Since players change their minds about retirement all the time (ahem, Tom), we use an objective criteria for defining retirement on Mojo that does not rely on announcements or news reports. Mojo considers an athlete “retired” if they have not been on a roster at any point during the first or last four weeks of the NFL season.
NOTE: If a non-rostered player meets any of the following criteria during those four-week time periods, they are not considered retired on Mojo and trading on their shares can continue.
When a player is officially considered “retired” on Mojo, the Guaranteed Retirement Payout is automatically triggered, and shareholders receive a dollar amount equal to the athlete’s end-of-career Mojo Value, per share.
Along the way, the market makes its best guesses at what that Guaranteed Retirement Payout will be — and that’s what drives share price movement. And you can trade anytime, so you don’t actually have to wait until retirement. The guarantee is all about creating certainty for users that Mojo stocks have objective, real, cash value.
As an example, check out what Peyton Manning’s retirement payout would have been on Mojo:
From time to time players come out of retirement or find a new team after time away from the sport. If a retired player on Mojo happens to return to the NFL after meeting Mojo’s objective retirement criteria, they’ll be re-listed with a new share price. Previous retirement payouts for that athlete stock are not affected.
For example, as of this writing (Week 3, 2022), Odell Beckham Jr. is not on a roster or on any of the exceptions lists mentioned above. Despite the high likelihood that he will return to a roster before the end of the season, he will be considered “retired” on Mojo at the conclusion of Week 4. If and when he returns to the NFL, he will be re-listed and any previous retirement settlements will not be affected.
There’s not another investment that can claim to have this type of guaranteed, concrete, intrinsic value. Collectibles are worth whatever someone is willing to pay for them at the time. (Hence, the dreaded “bubbles.”) Traditional stocks and crypto can plummet to zero without notice.
But with Mojo stocks, there’s a finish line, and you’ll always be able to see exactly what your guaranteed payout is if you hold the stock when a player retires.
