These terms outline the details on how funds raised by the Internet of Coins project will be used, and to which rules the fundraiser as well as its participants are bound. Every effort has been made to spell out a clear and transparent summary of what is contained in the legal terms. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Internet of Coins team using the contact form on the home page. This summary may be subject to change. The legal terms can be found below.
Internet of Coins is held accountable to how collected funds are being spent by the appointed sequestration organization, the NLnet Foundation. Every payment, whether regular or bounty, must be requested before funds can be spent, to safeguard the financial situation of Internet of Coins, and to make sure developments can proceed in a steady and orderly fashion. In this way all funds vested by crowdfunding participants are legally and procedurally safeguarded. Read more here.
The pie chart below gives an overview of how collected funds will be allocated in the project.
In short, as crowdfund proceedings grow, we intend to scale up more in development and community bounties.
In the following roadmap we present the milestones the project is to reach every quarter in the time ahead.
The project manager of the Internet of Coins team, along with the board of recommendation, will keep track of the advances in development, marketing and all other details regarding the project and its timeline. Updates will be sent out in the form of newsletters to cover unfolding events and milestones reached. Every quarter the developments done will be assessed and planning for the following quarter will be adjusted where necessary to enable a timely response to technological progress outside the project as well as what is happening in the cryptocurrency markets.
The tokens distributed for the Internet of Coins project are called HYBRID. These tokens will be made available initially on seven different blockchain ecosystems simultaneously, namely Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), CounterParty (XCP), NXT Platform (NXT), New Economy Movement (XEM), Waves Platform (WAVES) and Bitshares (BTS).
There will be a maximum of 1000000 (one million) tokens available on each ecosystem. During the crowdfund 900000 (nine hundred thousand) of these tokens will be offered to those taking part. A maximum of 100000 (one hundred thousand) tokens will be reserved for crowdfund reward payouts.
During the crowdfund the price per HYBRID token will increase over time. Once the fundraiser is over, tokens will not be subject to inflation other than the moments that HYBRID is expanded to new blockchains.
