5. Patent

A patent (utility patent) on EvidenZ framework will be registered in the United States within 2 weeks.

6. Token

We know that a “big” exchange is important for the community: we have just discussed again with the Circle team (Poloniex) today. But it must start with an increase of our marketcap.

We believe that the launch of the platform, the announcement of new customers and the circulation of BCDTs will be our best assets for this during the fall.

As expected, the BCDT token will be used as soon as the product is released into production under the conditions specified in the Whitepaper.

Let’s remember this will be one of the first token of an Ethereum mainstream application in production.

It is this real and concrete use that will be the basis of communication around our token.
