I have already described the reasons why we are using ERC-20 tokens with their further replacement: https://blog.goodaudience.com/you-may-call-me-captain-obvious-but-one-of-the-main-goals-the-developers-set-for-themselves-when-ddfb4a9b5bb7. In brief, it is necessary for faster attracting crypto enthusiasts to the project as they are mainly using Ethereum. All replaceable tokens will be accumulated in a special wallet and withdrawn from the circulation.
Now, I am going to detail the first emission of tokens, their first owners and the procedure of their distribution. On the first day of the issue of tokens (which is going to take place one of these days), 464 addresses controlled by experts in different scientific disciplines specified in this list
will become their owners. All the disciplines are represented by a group of scientists, mainly from Akademgorodok
. Free coins will be distributed from those addresses for popularization of Scientificcoin platform.
Today, lots of new cryptocurrencies and ICOs distribute their tokens using Bounty Campagne and Airdrops. Firstly, this method is threadbare and those same-type gifts have lost their value as valuable things normally have to be deserved. Secondly, most participants of Bounty Campagne, etc. have turned into bots with fake accounts in Twitter and Facebook or those nobody reads as all they post is ICO advertisements on their pages. There are even groups aimed at topic promotion on Bitcointalk including guys with 10-20 high rank accounts. Their goal is to keep the advertiser's topic at the top. For this purpose, they write comments and discuss the project but even this scheme requires understanding of the project by those advertising it.
Of course, we need promotion, and we are going to use all kinds of marketing tricks but at a whole new level, without any obvious commercials or naïve comments. In some way, we will also use Bounty Campagne, but in our own unique version. Young people about 20 years of age are to become active participants of our platform. They will be mainly students and people interested in science and self-education.
We have already provided a service on our website for taking general knowledge tests in order to engage young hopefuls to develop the project and to acquaint the most gifted of them with teams of scientists in different academic fields. SNcoin will be paid to them as a reward for their online activities and they will be able to save or exchange them for weekly trainings conducted by famous experts in different spheres, inventors and professors. These will not only include webinars but also conferences held in different cities. Mainly Akademgorodok residents who regularly give talks at international conferences in western countries will be speakers within the next few months but as the platform develops, we will engage speakers from other countries.
This is how we are going to distribute most Scientificcoin tokens among young hopefuls. Nowadays, the number of students throughout the world is 153 million which is much more than the amount of coins we have allotted for this purpose (40 million coins). In order to register on http://scientificcoin.com
and start working with the platform: gain access to analytics; become an expert assessing scientific projects, an investor concluding smart contracts, a miner, etc., you have to have 1 or more SNcoin.
This amount of Scientificcoin tokens will be distributed among 464 scientific disciplines on the first day they are created. It is important to note that the terms and conditions of the smart contract restrict their disposal: not more than 10% of the initial amount per month.
Remunerations for Bounty Students will start from 10 coins for a repost in a social network (it can be received only once). All other tasks with fixed fees will be available after passing a general knowledge quiz which is already available on our website at http://scientificcoin.com/0quiz
. Thus, we expect that the average amount that can be made by an active student within the year 2018 will be about $1000.
