WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION
The tokes platform is a digital currency project for the cannabis legalization movement
Introducing yet another first in the digital currency space, the Founder’s Club is a unique offering that provides additional value to large investors in the platform.
Any participant purchasing a minimum of 50,000 TOKES during the ICO will be assigned an exclusive FCID#, Founder’s Club Identification Number, which will be associated with a specific tokes wallet address. Membership will have numerous perks extending beyond the standard redemption of ICO proceeds.
A key benefit for FC members will be early access to our quarterly tokes repurchase program. Additionally, any FC member who wishes to redeem tokes for BTC during the repurchase period will do so at a 10% premium over prevailing market rates (based on a trailing VWAP at an aggregate of exchanges). Other early benefits include special access to private events hosted by the tokes platform, and free branded items such as t-shirts, hats, stickers, etc.
The 50,000 minimum can be accumulated in any stage of the ICO, but must be completed prior to our close on January 15, 2017, as membership enrollment is only valid during the ICO. Join the revolution.

The Cannabis Revolution™, empowered by the tokes digital currency platform, will be one of the first projects in the world to combine the technological advances of the blockchain and digital tokens with the cultural shift associated with the marijuana legalization movement
Following the close of the ICO, the project will be executed in two distinct phases with a myriad of benefits for investors in each stage of development…
Additionally, with a ballot measure for recreational marijuana use passing in the 2016 election cycle (NV), the opportunities present in this industry are overwhelming. Time is of the essence to secure a competitive advantage.
As the business develops, long term holders of TOKES will derive value through a redistribution of profits. There are several avenues we can utilize to execute this value proposition, including dividends and token buy-backs. We will be consulting further with our legal team prior to initiating these transactions to ensure that these rewards are entirely legal and above-board.
Enter Tokes Platform. Our objective is to create a business network in which legal marijuana entities throughout the United States can utilize a secure, safe, and unified asset for transactions. Through the utilization of fiat gateways, we will target the movement of those cash assets onto the TOKES blockchain, where it will serve as a store of value. It will also enable these facilities to accept TOKES as a form of payment, instead of cash. The result will be a much safer environment for both operators and patrons, as they will no longer be required to carry substantial levels of physical fiat to make transactions.
The mainnet implementation of TOKES will have a number of advantages over competitors in this space, including:
• Asset Pegging to USD
• Anonymous Transactions
• Liquidity and features of WAVES blockchain
1. Asset Pegging: TOKES will utilize various mechanisms to ensure that once a transaction occurs, the value of that transaction will not change for the holder of TOKES. Similar mechanisms can be seen in stable assets such as BitUSD, NuBits, CoinoUSD, Digix, and Tether. This feature provides businesses with the peace of mind that volatility in the underlying token will not impact the bottom line financials (either negatively or positively). We believe this will result in much higher adoption rates for businesses interested in this technology than we’ve seen with our peers.
2. Anonymous Transactions: This feature requires little explanation or justification. As an industry on the cutting edge of the legal system, many participants desire anonymity with their purchases. We intend to have this advantageous system built directly into our transaction layer.
3. WAVES Blockchain Implementation: As long-time supporters and analysts of the various developments in coin technology, we feel that executing our initial asset issuance on the Waves Platform will be a valuable partnership. The cutting-edge features proposed by Waves, such as fiat gateways and an enhanced crowdfunding interface will largely benefit early adopters and investors in TOKES. We also believe that a partnership with this blooming platform will assist with the cross-promotion of both technologies.
We hope you’ll join us in this unique offering, and are looking forward to responding to any questions the community brings to us.
