Eligma Locks the Ethereum Exchange Rate at $800 and Promises to Burn Unsold Tokensby Royce Ng April 30, 2018
Eligma is on its way to become a universal trading platform that will use AI and blockchain
technologies to gather a large number of online stores on one platform, enable user to manage their
belongings and implement a universal loyalty program that will enable users to earn and redeem a
single currency – Eligma’s ELI crypto token – in all stores, partnered on the platform.
Eligma’s public crowdsale is in full swing
Even before the start of the public crowdsale, the team was able to comfortably surpass the chosen
soft cap of $3,000,000 by collecting 14,550 ETH in the private and public presale phases. Following
this success, Eligma’s public crowdsale started on April 17th and will last until May 8th . Taking current
cryptomarket conditions and community feedback into account, two very important decisions
regarding the token sale were made:
The Ethereum exchange rate was locked at $800
The entire crypto market has been very unstable and the Ethereum exchange rate has dropped
sharply since the start of our presale phases. That means that our early supporters would be at a
disadvantage, as they would receive a lower number of ELI tokens, since their ETH contribution
would be worth less and their bonuses would lose their purpose. We could not let that happen,
because those are the people that trust us the most.
We also have great faith in the crypto market and blockchain technologies in general. That is why we
decided without hesitation we would take a big part of the risk upon ourselves and show the world
how serious we are about our project and its vision. By locking a price that is higher than the one on
the market, we will enable our contributors to receive more ELI tokens.
Eligma’s team decided to burn all ELI tokens not sold in the public crowdsale
There are two usual ways that companies treat tokens that were not sold in the crowdsale – they
either burn them or keep them for future use and distribution. With community feedback strongly in
favour of the first option and aligning with the company’s thinking, Eligma’s team decided to burn its
What does burning mean? It basically means sending those tokens to an unusable address where
they are lost forever, and no one can access or use them. This prevents the company from owning a
large share of the tokens and having a too large of a influence on the token economy.
