Upstock’s equity is based on the double trigger RSU mechanism. The first trigger is based on a worker’s performance; the second trigger is a landmark event like the sale of the company or an IPO. Both triggers have to be met for workers to receive their payout of equity.
If the company fails, then there's no payout of any equity. But if the company succeeds and workers will get their fair share.
(Note: It's important to keep in mind that the estimates for the company's valuation shown in the dashboard are not necessarily its real market value or the price the company could be sold for. The company could be sold for a lot more or a lot less, or nothing at all.)
