The Reward tokens represent 50% of the aggregate WTK Token distribution.

8. How can I participate in the Warrantoken distribution?

To participate in the WTK Token distribution, you will need an Ethereum compatible wallet or an application where you and only you hold the private keys. Private keys are needed to correctly interact with smart contract functions, like transferring cryptographic tokens. Do not send ether (“ETH”) directly from cryptocurrency exchanges, only an ETH compatible wallet.

9. How can I see how much ETH has been contributed during a specific period of the WTK Token distribution?

The amount of ETH received during each current period will be displayed on the Warrantoken website.

10. Why can’t U.S. citizens, residents or entities purchase WTK Tokens?

It was decided that U.S. citizens, residents and entities should be excluded from purchasing WTK Tokens in the token distribution because of some of the logistical challenges associated with differing regulations in the many states of the United States of America. UNIVEC FOUNDATION does not believe that the distribution of WTK Tokens or the WTK Tokens themselves are securities, commodities, swaps on either securities or commodities, or similar financial instruments. The WTK Tokens are not designed for investment or speculative purposes and should not be considered as a type of investment. Nevertheless, U.S. citizens, residents and entities should not purchase or attempt to purchase WTK Tokens.

11. Are WTK Tokens transferable?

While UNIVEC FOUNDATION will not be involved in any way in the transferability of the WTK Tokens, it is possible that WTK Tokens could be transferred on a peer-to-peer basis or on platforms operated by 3rd parties during the WTK Token distribution period. WTK Tokens will become fixed (non-transferable) on the Ethereum blockchain within 23 hours after the end of the WTK Token distribution period which will occur on January 1, 2019.

12. Are there network fees when transferring WTK Tokens?

Yes, the WTK Token is an ERC-20 compatible token; therefore, transfers will be subject to ETH gas fees like all other transactions on the Ethereum network.

13. What happens if I can’t contribute ETH or don’t receive my WTK Tokens?

The WTK Token distribution contract, WTK Token smart contract and the WTK Tokens are being provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without representations, warranties, promises or guarantees whatsoever of any kind made by UNIVEC FOUNDATION. Prior to purchasing WTK Tokens, you should ensure that you carry out your own examination and investigation and carefully review in their entirety the risks associated with purchasing WTK Tokens as set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Purchases of WTK Tokens are non-refundable and purchases cannot be cancelled. Under no circumstances will you be entitled to receive money or compensation for any WTK Tokens purchased or your inability to purchase WTK Tokens.

Proceeds from the WTK Token distribution will be the revenue of UNIVEC FOUNDATION.
