Smells like the ICO spirit

Steven Ehrlich, the COO at Wall Street Blockchain Alliance, has compared this token offering to the good old ICO scheme, when any retail investor was able to buy as many as they could afford with no any minimal amount to be purchased.

Besides, the tokens are made on Ethereum, the platform on which all the first crypto giants, including Tron, EOS and Binance ran their platforms before launching their own mainnets.

Florian Glatz, the startup’s co-founder, said:

 We are very proud of that actually. They [the tokens] are going to be living, breathing, the free air of the public Ethereum network.”
