Itâ€™s HODLÂ time!
For the uninitiated, â€˜HODLâ€™ is a term derived from a misspelling of â€œholdâ€� and it refers to a buy-and-hold strategy in the context of bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies.
Why does this matter? Well, after recently crossing a major milestone in the launch of Rocket, our user-friendly token crowdsale platform, weâ€™re now arriving at the precipice of another marker: Team allocations of FUELÂ tokens!
These are FUEL tokens that have been locked away by the smart contract that governed our token crowdsale, which wrapped up at the end of October. Official details of this payout is stated in the Etherparty whitepaper (p.12) available at etherparty.com. Essentially, 5 percent of all FUEL tokensâ€Šâ€”â€Ša total of 50 millionâ€Šâ€”â€Šwere earmarked for distribution by the company for Etherparty staff, following the lockoutÂ period.
We know how tough the cryptocurrency market has been, and the team wants to reassure our supporters on twoÂ things:
- This is not a token dump; our team, by and large, are FUELÂ HODLers.
- No tokens in the companyâ€™s reserve will be touched. The reserve batch of tokens have been locked since the token offering.
If you have any questions related to this, please donâ€™t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org, CEO at Etherparty Smart Contracts, Inc.
â€œI do understand itâ€™s easy to be skeptical and negative, as many projects have not done what they said they would do, or have just vanished,â€� saidÂ Hobbs.
â€œWe have remained true to our word even though there have been some delays, but that just goes with the territory in emergingÂ tech.â€�
Stay tuned for more news and the upcoming feature adds to Rocket that will showcase more of our talent and dedication to building the very best products in theÂ space.
We thank you for your continued support as we work to create the most innovative and accessible ecosystem bridging the gap between todayâ€™s crypto-enthusiast and the mainstream user.
