Is Uptrennd blockchain-based or a DApp?
Not yet, Uptrennd is currently a standard Web 2.0 website. We plan to have Uptrennd as a fully decentralized platform within 1.5 years.
Did Uptrennd do an ICO?
No, Uptrennd is a fully self-funded project. No outside investments were accepted for any stage of the build.
Was there a premine of 1UP tokens?
Yes. Since this was a grassroots, self-funded platform, Uptrennd had to get creative with ways to reduce startup costs. Rather than spending millions upfront on a full blockchain integrated platform, the website was built as a web 2.0 platform. This meant it was not possible to have an onchain model at launch. Uptrennd premined 1,000,000,000 tokens which are securely kept in cold storage. The only time 1UP tokens will be moved from cold storage is when users on Uptrennd withdraw tokens from their points earned.
Can I read more about the tokenomics?
Yep! More details can be found here
