Specifically for EHO, the company commits to using proceedings from EHO tokens sale for product development and marketing. Then all products, mobile app premium features and any other generated value will be sold only for EHO tokens. A secondary option of paying with fiat will also be available, however proceedings on this account will be periodically channelled to the exchange for the purchase of EHO tokens without regard to its price starting with the lowest sell positions.
“For me the concept of private money and channelling all sales of the company through the token is a break-through concept that can completely change the world we live in”, shares Antons Sapriko, the CEO of Scandiweb and adds “while conventional ICOs usually represent a sale of a fraction in a protocol, what if we extend the concept of protocol to include off-chain interactions? What if we just look at any company as, say, Disneyland, which issues its private money to finance the building of the infrastructure and all the rollercoasters and then commits to issue tickets only in exchange for its the private money that was sold during ICO and proceedings were used to build everything according to the plan.” Antons Sapriko, CEO, Scandiweb
