HashKey launches incentivized EcoPoints token: HSK

Quick Take

  • HashKey Group launched its own token, HSK.
  • The Asian virtual asset financial services group claims it will regularly buy back and burn the token.

HashKey Group launched its HashKey EcoPoints token, HSK, designed to incentivize contributors, users, and partners.

The token has a fixed total supply of one billion HSK. The HaskHey team will receive 30% of the token supply, while 65% is allocated for "ecosystem growth." The remaining 5% is dedicated to a reserve fund.

"HSK will power the diverse businesses of the HashKey ecosystem, activate the ecosystem's growth, and reward users and partners for contributing to the development of the ecosystem," the Asian virtual asset financial services group stated.

HSK will be repurchased and burned

HashKey EcoPoints will be rewarded for using its exchange and future business, and "there will be regular repurchasing and burning of HSK from circulating supply to offset dilutionary effect of reward distribution."

"HSK has a fair, incentive-based distribution mechanism to ecosystem users and partners," it added.  

According to HashKey, no private or public sales of HSK took place.

Furthermore, no form of fundraising was carried out through HSK.
