SINGAPORE, ATHENS, LONDON. Thursday January 25, 2018
PARKGENE announced today that it offers downside and upside protection against cryptocurrency volatility for GENE token holders.
“Having listened to our community’s concerns regarding the volatility of their cryptocurrency positions, we have decided to help alleviate the concerns of crypto appreciating or depreciating during the course of our ICO, offering guaranteed protections, both in the upside as well as the downside”, said Nikolas Skarlatos, CFO of PARKGENE.
The Volatility Protection scheme is further detailed below with the following two protections offered:
- Up to 20% upside guaranteed
If the digital asset exchanged for tokens appreciates, the token holder will get extra tokens up to 20% of the upside.
- Downside protection against any downside risk
If you have purchased GENE tokens using cryptocurrency, we will lock the number of tokens against the crypto price at the time of the purchase.
More specifically, below you can find the upside-protection level based on participation:
|Participation Value||Upside Price Protection|
|$2,000 – $5,000||10%|
|$5,001 – $10,000||15%|
If the digital asset exchanged for the tokens appreciates, the token holder will be able to benefit from this as his tokens will be recalculated up to a certain percentage based on volume (see table above).
- These recalculations will only involve the tokens allocated from the sale transaction. The adjustment does not apply to bonus tokens.
- Recalculations are made daily (for reference) and the final calculations will take place on February 19, 2018 or at any point that our hard cap is reached and the ICO is sold-out.
To better understand how the Volatility Protection works please see the examples below:
Example 1: You’ve purchased 95,000 GENE with 1 BTC at $9,500 USD/BTC. At the end of the ICO, BTC has appreciated to $13,000 (a 36.8% appreciation) you will receive 15% more tokens. (14,250 additional tokens)
Example 2: You’ve purchased 95,000 GENE with 1 BTC at $9,500 USD/BTC. At the end of the ICO, BTC has fallen to $7,000 (a 26.3% depreciation) your purchase is not affected by the price decline
Example 3: You’ve purchased 95,000 GENE with 1 BTC at $9,500 USD/BTC. At the end of the ICO 1 BTC has appreciated to $10,500 (a 10.52% appreciation) you will receive 10.52% more tokens (9,994 additional tokens)
