an idea for a business. Owners of various companies will be able to invest by simply entering an investment request. Other people, uninvolved
in commerce, who just have business ideas, will be able to get capital to fulfill them and turn them into real businesses through the PopulTrade groups.
PopulTrade will be able to create this capital on account of everyday activities, such as purchases of articles, usage of services and successfully executed
businesses. The created capital will be managed in a democratic way by members gathered in the PopulTrade groups (like you), members who will cooperate in a
business transaction and will contribute to its growth and success, will consequently earn on behalf of their work. The PopulTrade environment will
allow a business to be carried out from the initial idea to the final sale of the product.
Depending on the type of investment, you will get a share of the profit that you will be later able to trade on the PopulTrade.
All processes in PopulTrade groups, such as elections of leaders, ratings of members and businesses, voting for the capital allocation, voting for the group rules, etc., will be managed in a democratic way by using smart contracts.
PopulTrade tokens crowdsale
How to participate?
1. Create Ethereum wallet
Create a wallet on MyEtherWallet.com or on any other popular services like Parity or Mist.
2. Get some ethereum (ETH)
Purchase Ethereum in an exchange using other currencies (BTC, LTC, XMR or similar). Alternatively you can use exchanges such as Coinbase to buy ETH directly with FIAT currencies. Once you obtain Ether (ETH), move it to the wallet created in the previous step.
3. Wait for the crowdsale
Starts on 11. December 2017, or subscribe to our newsletter so you will be notified when the token crowdsale starts.
Optionally: convert EUR - ETH
Only for Slovenia.
We are starting the crowdsale for two reasons:
To get contributions for developing/implementing the PopulTrade system.
To get contributions for starting the marketing. This will allow people to join the Circuls (groups of people where businesses and ideas are made reality) as soon as the system is launched and to turn their business and ideas into reality.
A sum between $ 1.1M to $ 8M is the initial cost needed for developing/implementing the system and for running the initial marketing and PR. All other collected contributions will be locked in the ether on a smart contract for a period of one year (the period we need to start the system). If, after this period of time you are not satisfied with our finished product you can redeem your investment minus the development/implementation cost and the received bonus.
The more contributions there comes the more of your investment you will be able to get back if you are not satisfied.
Each activity in the PT platform will be rewarded with the PT token – the Populcoin. For example, profits from the businesses created in Circuls will be converted into Populcoins. Commissions from each purchase of articles or services will be converted into Populcoins and added to the Popultrade groups (Circuls) for further investments as well as to the users who were involved either by making a purchase, by voting or carrying out a job in the PT groups, etc.

The majority of the Populcoins will be available in a public crowdsale starting on December 11 2017, with a minimum investment goal of $1.1M and a soft cap of $8M. Any contributions over the soft cap will be locked on the smart contract in the ether for one year counting from the crowdsale end-date and if after a year you are not satisfied with our work you can redeem your contribution. Our team members and initial investors are fully devoted to the project. That's why all tokens, allocated to the team (16%) and advisors (4%) will be held in multi-sig wallets for 24 months. Because all our tokens are pre-mined, we've also set aside a portion of tokens for future partnerships (6%), any good idea or proposition during the beta (4%) both locked for 24 months after the token crowdsale end date, bounty program (2%) and early investors (4%). One of the main purposes of the Populcoin is enabling the growth of Popultrade system and give to all crowdsale investors a system that will allow the usage of Populcoins.
The majority of the tokens will be sold in a crowdsale to secure funds for further product development, operations, international expansion and for enabling the Circuls (Groups of people where businesses and ideas are turned into reality) to start operating at the launch of PopulTrade.
A portion of tokens will be held by the team.
Reserves for future partners, that will help the project in future stages.
Ideas and propositions
Tokens for ideas and propositions, once the beta will be ready any good idea or proposition to the Popultrade system will be rewarded with tokens.
Tokens for our advisors that helped the project with their knowledge and expertise.

Tokens for our bounty program.
Allocation of the product development phase contributions
We strive to deliver our features as comprehensive and easy as possible, which is why we made the technical development/implementation a priority of our operations. This decision is strongly reflected in our financial strategy, that is divided into two phases. While the funds collected in the first phase will cover the development costs and the initial marketing, the second phase is mainly intended to cover marketing operations and the start of Circuls. Unsold tokens will be destroyed. In case the crowdsale does not reach the envisioned amount we will return the received ether.
