An uncapped number of tokens will be sold during Aragon’s month-long token sale starting today and concluding June 14, 2017. All funds raised from this initial sale, in the form of Aragon Network Tokens (ANT), will be used to continue building the Core and to build the Network.
“Aragon is pioneering the change in organizational structures, redefining how companies are managed worldwide. At ShapeShift we strive to align ourselves with companies that further advance and broaden the usage of blockchain technology and are delighted to play a role in Aragon’s upcoming token sale,” said Erik Voorhees, founder and CEO of ShapeShift.
Entering into the token pre-sale as institutional partners are ICONOMI and CoinFund. In addition, Aragon lists a number of individual pre-sale contributors including Joe Urgo, Director of Operations for Ethlance and Danielle Levi, co-founder of Stampery.
Early contributors, presale partners and advisors will acquire tokens which vest over time through smart contracts.
“As a team we are dedicated and committed to the long term success of the project. Therefore, the Aragon token sale will be one of the first to restrict Founder and early contributor rewards with tokens which vest using smart contracts. We believe vesting should become a de-facto standard for all blockchain projects,” added Cuende.
