Tachyon (TYX), a token-based 2nd layer payment rail built on Ethereum, will be hosting a multifaceted media campaign to promote their project. Still flying under the radar for much of the cryptocurrency space, Tachyon hopes to use this campaign to better their exposure through media publicity and expand their social media following.
Named after the particle hypothesized to be faster than the speed of light, we like to think of Tachyon as ‘Ethereum’s little brother’: a payment system that will serve to complement the growing financialization of the Ethereum network. …
We thought about the problem with distributing newly-minted tokens. Given that the ICO model has been so utterly unsuccessful this year, and the many scams that came from that, we decided to follow a different distribution model where we’re not soliciting funds for a token whose value has not yet been determined.
It’s simple: instead of having you buy TYX from us with ETH or BTC during an initial coin offering, we will instead be distributing TYX through a series of campaigns, bounties, promotions, crypto-faucets, and other tasks. …
If you don’t already know, Tachyon just finished its first bounty as of Sept 28, 2018. Congratulations to the 2200 or so people who received TYX.
With TYX now in your Ethereum addresses, your TYX tokens can be easily viewed, received, and sent through your MyEtherWallet.

If you know about the Tachyon project, you might also know that 40% of the total circulating supply of Tachyon will be distributed in 8 successive distributions of 5% each. You can read more about TYX’s distribution in ‘The Airdrop Model’ section of our whitepaper.
As a tipping token, we want TYX to be in as many wallets as possible from those who are actually interested in Tachyon. Our airdrop model therefore allows for us to fulfill our goal of accessibility.
However, for those who are not familiar with Ethereum, it may not be straightforward enough to figure out how…
The brain-child of two budding computer science developers-in-training, Tachyon is a tipping and micro-transactional token made to compliment Ethereum. Intended to be embedded into existing forums, chats, websites, and other possible payment channels, Tachyon is a memorable token aiming to accessorize payments in our future informal digital economy.
As per the newly-released roadmap released on our website, Tachyon’s goal is to create a network of widgets, plug-ins, and payment solutions that are easily integrated into the existing social and economic online infrastructure. With the future release of Tachyon’s light wallet…
