We are reaching out in order to provide first-hand information about our Huobi Prime Launch and set the facts straight, in order to preserve our community and the transparency of our token distribution.
We are not foreign to the rumors around this event and have been monitoring our international community 24/7 to be able to provide all clarifications needed. Akropolis would like to address the rumors we have identified during the past several days that have been pervading the Chinese community, caused by an unannounced move of 320mn of AKRO tokens between internal Huobi wallets.
The rumors of the Akropolis team or presale participants having sold their tokens are completely unfounded and false: all tokens are locked according to the schedule that we published in this Medium article. Please feel free to check the transactions and movement of the AKRO tokens on Etherscan.
It has additionally come to our attention that several exchanges claimed to list AKRO. Please note that 11.5% of the total token supply is trading on Huobi now and all other tokens are locked. AKRO withdrawal function on Huobi is disabled hence there is no way those exchanges can list real AKRO tokens.
Lastly, it is important to highlight that whilst Akropolis is building on Substrate (framework created by Parity Technologies), will be participating as validator in the Kusama testnet, and contributing to the Polkadot ecosystem through development of infrastructure-level solutions (e.g. PolkaHub), we are not and have never represented to be a project of Polkadot (which is an open-source protocol) or that of the Web3 Foundation. Akropolis is a project on its own, and the AkroChain is our own project built using the Polkadot technology developed by Parity.
We would like to ask our community for collaboration on spreading this message in order to prevent false information from tarnishing our project, our team, and others. Thank you in advance for your support — you can always reach out to our community managers in our WeChat and Telegram channels.
