1What is the XBITS token?

The XBITS token is an ERC-20 compatible token which is sold to token sale participants. The XBITS token aims to deliver a strong token to the market by introducing a buyback program to mimic dividend payments. We allocate 40% of our profit to buy back XBITS tokens, this will support the price development of the XBITS token.

2Why do we sell the XBITS token?

To fund the development of the Tradebits Platform, XBITS blockchain, and liquidity pool, Tradebits will initiate an Initial Token Sale (also referred to as the presale) and an Initial Coin Offering (ICO).

3What is the bonus during the Invite Only Pre-sale?

The bonus in the invite only pre-sale is up to 35% on the list price.

4What is the bonus during the Presale?

The bonus in the presale is up to 20% on the list price.

5What is the soft cap and hard cap of the token sale?

The XBITS token sale will not have a soft cap and hard cap.

6Can I buy XBITS tokens by depositing Ethereum (ETH) directly from any exchange?

No, this is not possible. Deposits from exchange wallets may not be directly attributable to you, which may result in an inability to purchase XBITS tokens, and your deposit may be permanently lost. You need to send your purchased ETH to a compatible wallet whose private keys you own and control, before sending it to the token sale.

7What is the price of the XBITS token?

The XBITS token will be issued at a price of 0.05 EUR

8Which cryptocurrencies can I use to participate in the XBITS token sale?

You can currently use ETH to participate in the XBITS token sale. In the near future we will also start accepting other digital currencies.

9How many XBITS tokens will be issued?

5 billion tokens will be issued, 2 billion of which will be sold during the XBITS token sale.

10What happens to the unsold tokens?

2 billion tokens are sold during the XBITS token sale. 3 billion tokens are reserved for future mergers and acquisitions to help fuel our growth and distribution plans.

11What is the Tradebits buyback program?

Tradebits will initiate a buyback program to mimic dividend payments. Our buyback program will support the price development of the XBITS token. We will initiate a buyback program which will result in a continuous upward pressure of the Tradebits token price. The tokens that are bought back through the buyback program will be burned, resulting in a reduction of Tradebits tokens in circulation. Whereas most coins have an inflationary component, the Tradebits token has a deflationary component. Tradebits will continuously allocate 40% of the generated trading fees to market orders to support the price development of the XBITS token.

12Can I trade XBITS tokens?

Yes, XBITS tokens can be traded from the moment when the Tradebits Exchange will go live. We will open up the Tradebits exchange to all pre registered users to start trading in Q3 2018. Tradebits will provide plenty of liquidity and infrastructure to make sure you have a pleasant trading environment.
