Token release was distributed to core team. The total amount distributed from April 29, 2018 to April 29, 2019 was 167,500,000. Team members sold 30% of their tokens hold via OTC channel, which would not impact the market.
The budget for next year’s token distribution (April 29, 2019 — April 29, 2020) will be 167,500,000. However, the distribution will not only be limited to just the core Montreal team, it will also include the community developers. Left-over budget that was not distributed the current year will transfer to the following year’s budget.
For developers who wish to make plug-ins, set-up new forums, votes, etc. Can submit a proposal via Telegram or WeChat, and if deemed appropriate we can provide quotes for budget.
Example: If a community developer wants to propose a NBAI wallet for iOS/Android can submit their request, we can provide a quote for them to make it possible.
