Pangea Arbitration Token (PAT)

The Pangea Arbitration Token (PAT) is an ERC20 compatible in-app token for the Pangea Jurisdiction. The PAT token is proof-of-reputation for Citizens, issued when Citizens create a contract, successfully complete a contract or resolve a dispute attached to a contract. PAT is an algorithmic reputation token; an arbitration currency based on performance, rather than purchasing power, popularity, or attention.

Secure and Transparent

PAT is an ERC20 Compatible (standard Ethereum based) token, making it easy to integrate PAT into wallets and exchanges. The PAT code, the DBVN Multisignature code, and the ICO Contract code has all been throughly audited by ABDK Consultants. The codes are open source can be found on the BITNATION GitHub.

Continuous and Fair

The PAT Token distribution takes place over 2 Years. 10% of PAT will be sold during the first month of the ICO, and an additional 24% of PAT will be sold at a ratio of 1% a month over 24 months. The model used is an auction model, to ensure that the price is set on the market, based on demand and supply.

Powers Pangea

The majority of PAT is reserved to power the Pangea Jurisdiction. Citizens gets rewarded with non-tradable reputation tokens when they create a contract, executes a contract, or solve a dispute related to a contract. When they accumulate enough non-tradable reputation token, they get rewarded with PAT. Thus this provide an incentive for effective contract execution and dispute resolution.
