Announcing the PRX ICO

Posted on

PRX, the first ICO on Ripple's RCL

THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL ICO. THIS IS NOT LIKE OTHER ICOS WITH A COMPANY BEHIND IT. READ THE FULL POST BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO PARTICIPATE.

TOKENS WERE ISSUED UNDER A NEW ADDRESS AT rPRXcb4T8r7VezKkgRbQBuzGrftsjgJcUu YOU MUST REISSUE TRUST TO THAT ADDRESS TO RECEIVE YOUR TOKENS.

Participate in the experiment! I am selling 1 billion PRX tokens. I created these while creating an article I posted recently.

These tokens are capped. No more PRX tokens will ever exist. They live on the Ripple Consensus Ledger.

As of yesterday, no one controls them.

They aren't a currency, they aren't backed by anything, they don't represent a share in a company, there is no development to be done on them, there will be no development done for them, there is nothing behind PRX except for hopefully a community that might decide to use them. I created these tokens mainly to see if I could do so. Now I am offering them in a token sale to see what the process of running one is like.

This is not an investment this is literally just a token on the RCL. This is a piece of property being sold. If you decide to participate you are doing so of your own free will.

Some quick questions/answers:

Why are you doing this?

Just to experiment with the technology and see how difficult it is to run a token sale. I've already faced a lot of questions just trying to run this little experiment.

How much do you think this sale will raise?

Probably enough to buy me a beer or two.

Will any exchanges list PRX?

Probably not. Which also means it'll probably be pretty worthless, but a neat collector's item.

Why would anyone participate?

This is the first ICO on the Ripple Consensus Ledger. Ethereum has exploded due to all the ICOs operating on their platform. Ethereum used to be about smart contracts but now (especially seeing as few meaningful smart contracts have been developed) it is mainly used for tokens and ICOs.

Imagine if more companies decided to do ICOs on Ripple's Consensus Ledger. I'm opening that door, I'd love to do an actual ICO that represented a real product or was part of a company, but due to living in the U.S. I don't wish to open myself up to the risk of operating a company with an ICO and accepting investment. This is my contribution to the space, I'm providing the real experience of selling a token IOU on the RCL and giving tutorials on how to purchase them, set them up, and operate a sale.

Plus, I officially license whatever company that issues their ICO on RCL to claim to be the first 'real' ICO.

This ICO can prove the concept for whatever companies come next and want to use Ripple's ledger. There are rumors of a PoW token on the RCL being developed, and another digital currency group is exploring the concept.

ICOs should operate on the RCL, with the ability to handle 1000's of txns per second the issues Ethereum has been having handling all the payments wouldn't be so prevalent.

This is an important step. Unless you set the trust line accepting PRX you cannot be sent it! If you do not set a trust line accepting PRX you will not be able to receive PRX.
