Among the 1,000,000,000 MAN Tokens, a total of 150,000,000 were sold in the Initial Token Sale. The remaining 850,000,000 tokens are reserved for the following purposes.

(1) 100,000,000 are retained by the Foundation for founders, directors, advisors, early backers, management and community initiatives. These will be distributed in different phases after the initial ICO.

According to the development roadmap, the MATRIX mainnet will launch by the end of 2018. After the launch of the mainnet, the original 250,000,000 ERC20 MAN tokens will be swapped on a one-to-one basis for new MAN tokens.

(2) 200,000,000 tokens will be issued for one or more subsequent sale(s) to the public on later dates as Additional Token Sales (“ATS”). Proceeds from ATS will be dedicated to system scale up and production development.

(3) 400,000,000 are reserved as rewards for miners who contributed to the Proof of Work activities once the MATRIX AI Network mainnet is launched.

(4) 150,000,000 are allocated to the Foundation as management and sales incentives, grants and scholarships to support R&D, administration, marketing and community development activities in service of the MATRIX AI Network blockchain.

MATRIX AI Network is an intelligent, open-source, new generation blockchain that aims to solve major challenges currently stifling the development and adoption of blockchain technology. MATRIX leverages the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology to deliver on the promise of blockchain.
