I don’t get it. I would be willing to contribute to this game-changing tech but why a new token to enable this?
I am no expert on “all things token” but create a contract where folks can contribute, keeping track of the contributions (I know a pretty cool ledger you could write into), then find a way to pay back your investors' wallets (+ interest to some cap if you want to spice it up) as the tech is utilized. Virtual tokenization for funding — use the ETH juju for the gas as this feels more like a sweet protocol play/overlay where another token just adds unneeded complexity.
Your idea is big and I bet the community would rally.
