ICN is the ICONOMI token. ICN holders benefit from the performance of CCP as well as fees collected on the ICONOMI Digital Assets Management Platform via our repayment program - BuyBacks: https://medium.com/iconominet/iconomi-introduces-repayment-programme-54bfa449d458.
ICN tokens will have a usage once the DAA platform is launched. For example, we anticipate that creating a DAA will require burning ICN tokens. More details will be disclosed as they become available.
After the ICONOMI ICO ended in October 2016, 100 million ICN tokens were issued. 85 million of these tokens were distributed to ICO participants during the crowd sale, and a further 2 million were used for early-stage marketing and bounties. Of the remaining 13 million tokens, 2 million were distributed to advisors, 8 million were distributed to the ICONOMI team, and 3 million were reserved for future team members. The 8 million tokens distributed to the team are vested over 2 years. This means that ¼ of all tokens are distributed every 6 months.
