How often the part of fees will be released to HION holders?
  • Part of the fees will be released to token holders immediately upon the smart–contract driven transaction confirmation.
How are the token-holders going to be paid?
  • HION holders’ commissions will be paid out in HANDs coins, circulating within the system.
  • Few examples:
    • Commissions for use of capital will be paid out according to ‘a smart-contract’ upon closure of funded deal.
      • E.g. a deal is being backed by 100’000 HANDs. Investors’ accrued commission for 3 months use of capital is 2%. Immediately upon closure of deal investors get their 100’000 HANDs plus 2’000 additional HANDs.
    • Handelion will generate system commissions. A part of these commissions will be paid out according to a proportion of HIONs held.
      • E.g. Handelion has generated shareable commissions at the amount of 10’000 HANDs. An investor holds 7,63% of total HIONs supplied. Therefore, the investor receives 7,63%*10’000 HANDS, or 763 additional HANDs immediately after a deal closure.
Once I get commissions in HAND coins, how do I withdraw the commissions? Will it be the convertible coin?
  • HAND coins will be in free circulation like any other crypto currency. Our goal is to support payments in HAND. Those payments can vary from enterprise balance sheets to salary payments and more.
