Gate.io Launches the Next Big Thing and Distributes 300 million Gatechain Tokens (GT)
1. what is GT?
GT stands for Gatechain Token, it is the base currency of Gatechain's public chain, supporting the infrastructure of the Gatechain public chain. GT is the main network fuel of Gatechain, paying the network transfer fee. Gatechain encourages GT holders to protect the network health through PoS equity mining. Gate.io will also adopt GT as part of its eco.
2. How to Get GT?
GT can only be gained via Gate.io. We will give away 300 million GT to users in the initial stage of the POINT launch. The GT distribution starts at UTC 4:00, April 8th, 2019. There is no ICO, no private sale. Please be careful of scams.

3. In the initial stage, will there be ERC20 based GT on Ethereum?
NO. The alleged ERC20 based GT is a scam. GT can only be gained on Gate.io. The deposit and withdrawal of GT will only be available when the Gatechain Mainnet is launched in Q4 2019.
4.What is the core value of Gatechain and why is it different?
Other than the DEX it provides, Gatechain creatively solves two safety issues, including 1) how to recover stolen digital assets and 2) how to find lost private keys. These two issues we believe are not solved by other public chains. We would reveal more details when the Gatechain Mainnet is launched. We would also make it open source to benefit users and the community.
5.Why is the initial amount of GT 300 million, but end up being 1 billion after ten years?
Users have raised doubt about our supply and distribution mechanism, regarding our large max supply and low circulating supply in particular. Though this design is not quite like the others, we believe it can benefit both our platform and users in the long run. The 300 million GT will be entirely distributed to users, with no ICO or private sales, and no distribution to the team, meaning the distribution is completely fair. The remaining GT will be locked for 12 months and vested for 10 years, so that the funds can be slowly released to support our projects throughout the future.
6.What is POINT?
POINT is a new sys. that can be used to deduct trading fees. 1 POINT equals 1 USDT fee. Users can get further handling fee discounts by purchasing a prepaid plan.
7. How can I use POINTs?
Initially, POINTs can be used to deduct trading fees in Markets and margin trading. In the future, POINTs can be used to deduct trading fees in other sections such as Fiat trading, Fiat lending/borrowing and contract trading, etc.
8.Will I purchase POINT plans without getting the GT rewards if all the GT has been given away that day?
No. During the distribution, if the daily GT supply is all distributed, POINTs cannot be purchased. The sales of POINTs will be resumed the next day. Users will not purchase POINT plans without getting GT rewards. Users will be notified via announcements if all the GT are given away and when the POINTs do not come with GT rewards.
9.Can POINTs be transferred?
Originally POINTs can only be transferred within a certain period of time. However, users have raised concerns about not being able to transfer POINTs in time or at a reasonable price. To address users needs, we have now decided that users can transfer their POINTs. However, Please be aware of the risk during transfers.
10.Can GT be pre-ordered? Is there any private sale? Is there reservation for institutions?
The 300 million GT will be awarded to users with the POINTs purchased publicly. We have announced all the supply and distribution rules to ensure fairness and transparency. There is no ICO, no private sale, no distribution to team, no pre-order, and no reservation for institutions.
11.When will GT be listed for trading?
After the second phase distribution, GT will be listed on Gate.io for trading. GT deposits and withdrawals will be enabled after the GT mainnet launches.

Leveraged wealth management was only launched 6 months ago, but we've since then become one of the world's largest virtual currency P2P lending platforms. The total amount of virtual currency borrowed exceeds $4.5 billion and has created nearly $10 million financial income for users.

The Gate.io mobile app has reached 2 million users and is one of the most active mobile app soft-ware in the industry.
4. The POINT Sys. for Service Fees
For a long time, Gate.io has granted users with a VIP rating based on the user's recent transaction volume. Users can enjoy a transaction fee discount according to their VIP rating.
In order to further reduce user’s transaction costs, increase users’ loyalty, and reward Gate.io platform users, we are officially launching a new POINT Sys.. Users can get further handling fee discounts by purchasing a prepaid plan.
With Gate.io POINT Sys., 1 point equals 1USDT fee. Starting from May 2019, fees incurred when placing a trading order will be deducted by POINT. In the future, POINT can also be used to deduct Fiat trading and margin trading fees.
Points can be transferred between users. However, once purchased, the points cannot be returned.
GateChain is an innovative public chain focused on secure storage and value exchange of block-chain assets. With an original online hot insurance account, the clearing guarantee creatively solves threat of the user's digital assets stolen and the loss of the private key, decentralized transac-tions, cross-chain transfer and other core issues.
