    1.Gate.io POINT sales and GT reward Rules

    (1) The sale of POINT starts at UTC 4:00, April 8, 2019, and there are 3 phases of it. Please click here to check the previous announcement regarding the reward daily supply limit, price and other relative information for the sale.

    (2) In the first phase and second phase, users can place orders to purchase POINT from UTC 4:00 to UTC 6:00 every day during the distribution. Order placed by qualified users within these 2 hours will be treated the same.

    (3) To become a qualified user to purchase POINT, your user account balance should not be smaller than the value of POINT you are purchasing.

    (4) Each user can only use one account, and the purchase limit is 10 plans per day. Users who violate this rule will be disqualified, and the payments will be refunded.

    (5) Users can place orders using other coins (we take USDT,BTC,ETH,EOS,BNB,HT). Each order can only use one type of coin, and each type of coin can only be used once per day.

    (6) Before UTC8:00, users need to ensure there is sufficient balance (exceeding the purchase value) in accounts for the purchase after placing the orders. An insufficient balance will result in the cancellation of the purchase order.

    (7) Users can purchase POINT on any specific day or several days during the distribution (please note that the amount of GT reward will reduce over time). After UTC 6:00, we will collect all the qualified orders and distribute the POINT and GT reward according to the individual purchased plans: total purchased plans ratio. The final result will be announced at UTC 8:00 each day.

    (8) The distribution calculation rules are as follow:

    F (reward ratio) =GT reward daily supply limit÷ordered POINT GT reward total
    P (actual individual purchased POINT) = F×qualified individual ordered POINT
    G (actual individual GT reward) = F * qualified individual ordered POINT GT reward
    M (actual payment amount) = F×qualified individual ordered POINT payment amount

    E.g. GT reward daily supply limit is 10 million. The ordered POINT GT reward total is 20 mllion. User X has placed an order to purchase 10 thousand POINTs which comes with 23 thousand GT reward. Thus:
    F (reward ratio)= 10,000 ÷ 20,000 =0.5
    P (actual individual purchased POINT) = 0.5 × 10,000 = 5,000
    G (actual individual GT reward) = 0.5×23,000 = 11,500 GT
    M (actual payment amount) = 0.5 ×9200 USDT = 4600USDT

    (9) The Gatechain Token (GT) distribution is entirely public and transparent. There is no ICO, no private sale no distribution to the team, no pre-order, or reservations for institutions. Please be aware of scams. Click the only official link below to get GT:https://www.gate.io/point_gt_reward

    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.. Gate.io will reveal more details when the Gatechain Mainnet is launched. Gate.io will also make it open source to benefit users and the community.

    5) Why is the initial amount of GT 300 million, but will 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 entirely 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.

    POINT is a new . 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.

    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?

    Initially, 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.
