Planting the Seeds

No ICO

Creating a currency is about striking a delicate balance between prospect and stability. Saga aims to provide a moderate, sensible middle way.

Funding the creation of Saga, however, involves a higher risk.

When designing the funding scheme, we decided not to conduct an ICO.

Instead, we opted to address accredited investors, those who have the experience to ask the hard questions, and to perform proper due diligence.

We are happy to find ourselves addressing the public, asking for trust - only when we have value to show for it - once the Saga currency is ready and launched.

Saga's Private Sale

Saga raises funding for its activities from accredited investors. A diversity of profiles was sought to reflect a variety of expertise. In addition, each investment is capped, to ensure a degree of decentralisation.

Saga Genesis is offered as a voucher token, SGN, to early supporters and investors, to reward them for taking a higher risk.
