1 - How does the ICO work?

ICO(Initial Coin Offering) is a unique opportunity to support a business at the stage of its founding by purchasing digitized shares of the company in form of tokens. Right after the ICO, all investors will receive Polybius Tokens (PLBT) to their wallets. At the same time, PLBT will become available for trading on cryptocurrency exchanges. Furthermore, at the end of a financial year, 20% of the distributable profit of Polybius Payment Institution or Polybius Bank is redistributed to all holders of Polybius tokens according to smart contract conditions.

The exact date will be announced soon. Meanwhile, subscribe to our newsletter or join us on social media to get all the latest news.

We started writing our whitepaper in September 2016. On the level of business detail and analysis that have gone into it, we feel it has reached beyond the scope of a traditional whitepaper. At the same time, we have decided in favor of disclosing a limited amount of details around the technical side of the project. Otherwise we compromise our ability to file required patents and thus risk the success of Polybius. As a result, we decided to call it a Prospectus so as to do justice to the level of detail contained therein.
