How to handle your RLC tokens
If you’re new to crypto-currencies, you will discover that it’s easy and fun to manage digital assets (« tokens »). New tools like Metamask, Etherscan, or MyEtherWallet now open access to a reasonably comfortable user experience
For the moment, there is no special need for a dedicated RLC token management app, but this could be done very easily in the future. For now, we recommend the use of imToken, MyEtherWallet, Metamask or Parity.
What can you do with your RLC tokens in the future? You will be able to access off-chain computation resources within iExec network. Your application will have his computation tasks executed by under-used computer nearby. We love discussions on different visions challenging our own approach so you can join our Slack so we can talk about distributed networks a hundred years from now!

How to buy RLC tokens?
Manage your token easily using imToken
iExec is the first blockchain-based fully distributed cloud computing platform. iExec relies on the Ethereum blockchain to organize a market of computing resources where everyone can monetize servers, applications and data sets.
RLC is the token that will allow their holders to access the computing resources within the iEx.ec network. It’s an ERC20-compliant digital asset on Ethereum, which means that you have full control over your tokens.
