Some words on the current LGO Token economics and utility.

The LGO Token

The LGO Token [1] was issued in March 2018 by LGO Exchange SAS, a French-based entity. LGOs were bought by more than 9,000 persons in more than 50 countries for a total amount of 3,600 Bitcoins during our Initial Coin Offering in February 2018.

The LGO Token is a utility token:

  • Clients can access discounts on the LGO platform by holding LGO tokens
  • LGOs can be used to pay for services on our platform
  • A portion of the fees collected by LGO will be used to buy back and burn LGO tokens
