When used in Catenis, BCOT tokens are consumed as part of the system’s rapid adoption technology. Consumed tokens convert into real Bitcoin blockchain value (actual bitcoins) that are used for miner fees and dust value (small amounts of bitcoin). Token consumption powers the ability for our customers to build decentralized applications, intelligent edge contracts, smart agents, smart assets, and secure permissioned communication across the open global peer-to-peer Bitcoin blockchain by using our already existing Catenis enterprise Integration application.

BCOT Global Holdings will distribute 20% of the total maximum supply to buyers. 7.5% will be made available during the token sale and 12.5% will be distributed via the Loyal Customer Reward program.

How may tokens are being issued?

We are not of the belief that simply issuing tokens and choosing a number out of thin air is an acceptable way of deciding on a maximum supply. To attempt to make the token issuance as fair as possible, we decided to make the maximum supply a function of how many purchases our customers made. So the maximum supply is directly tied to the total amount of sales in the token sale.

What is the formula used to calculate the total maximum supply?

To calculate the total maximum total supply:

(Total dollar amount of tokens sold) ÷ (price per token USD) = X
(X) ÷ (percentage of total tokens being sold during Token sale) = Maximum Supply

Working example based on $11M dollars sold:

(USD $ 11,000,000) ÷ (USD $0.50) = 22,000,000
(22,000,000) ÷ (0.075) = 293,333,333.33 BCOT Tokens total maximum supply
