Binance Introduces the Next Launchpad IEO: Troy (TROY)
According to the announcement, the Troy token sale will follow the typical lottery and airdrop format, with daily BNB balances recorded for thirty days leading up to December 3. The ticket claim will begin on December 3, with the drawing and results announced on December 4.
The project plans to sell 8% of its total token supply in the IEO, or 800 million TROY, with a hard cap of $4 million. There will be 20,000 winning tickets, with each ticket worth 40,000 TROY, or $200 based on the sale price of $0.005 per TROY — giving the token a $50 million valuation.
Troy previously sold 12% of its token supply in a private sale in August, raising $8.4 million at a $70 million valuation.
As described by the project, Troy plans to provide “crypto brokerage services for institutional clients and professional traders with revolutionary products, including spot & margin trading, derivatives, data, custody, lending and staking in one account.”
For its part, TROY will give users access to the platform’s trading features. Users will also be able to stake the token to “maintain global broker-to-broker networks.”
This news comes shortly after Binance became the first major exchange to support the rebranding of Voyager’s brokerage token (VGX) from the original Ethos (ETHOS). Similar to TROY, Voyager plans to use VGX to incentivize its platform. The first offering comes in the form of a 5% annualized interest rate for holding VGX on the Voyager app.
