Purk did not have an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), pre-mine, insta-mine or any other unfair launch strategy. We rely on donations from the Purk community to help fund the project and keep development and marketing at a steady pace. Developers volunteer and do not get paid a salary, they also pay for all ongoing costs such as marketing, advertising and web hosting which is expensive. There is a 1% emission model from mining donations – but at the moment, this barely covers the developers time, let alone any other associated ongoing costs. Below you can find a number of goals that require funding from the community. When each individual target is hit we will ask for the community’s feedback and your contributions will be used for the funding of that designated goal or roadmap item.
