On January 31st 2018, POLY tokens and v1 of the Polymath platform were deployed on Ethereum mainnet. In total, 1 billion POLY were created with ~240,000,000 tokens distributed on launch. The remaining ~760,000,000 tokens are released periodically on a set schedule until 2022.
POLY tokens are used on the Polymath platform to register token symbols, create security tokens, and use audited security token offering smart contracts to raise funds in an automated fashion. Since the release of the dApp in August 2018, 175 users have registered token symbols and more than 75 have created tokens on the platform.
These 75 million tokens (75,001,337 to be exact…) will be eligible for release in 5 years on January 1st, 2024. To verify this, you can view the contract on Etherscan (a block explorer that allows you to easily view the transactions and contracts on the Ethereum blockchain). The TokenTimelock contract was drafted by OpenZeppelin and has been used in excess of 65 times since 2017.
**Important Note: Do not send any tokens to this contract. You will lose your tokens. The tokens are only releasable to a Polymath controlled address.**
