[Status: Final Call] XIP-1: Founding HODL'er Registry (FHR)


#81

Just wanting to double check, is there never going to be another opportunity to buy in as a founder? Some of us had to take time and save up to be able to buy in, and it’s kinda a letdown to find out my saving up took too long and I missed the boat. The Gamma sale didnt come across my screen until late November, so buying in before now just wasnt an option and I expected at least a short period to buy in later, especially with there being quite a large percentage of tokens left based on the numbers

For me I liken it to serving in the Marines. Everyone had the chance to buy XYO (join the service). But not everyone is a Marine because the joined the Military. They could have joined the Marines( buyin during ICO or Gamma), but chose to buy them cheaper via IDEX. In the end we all served our country. So, in the end we bought XYO, and some also bought shares too. But only Marines earned the title U.S. Marines. Same-same for FHRs…we knew what was what and still paid the price, earned the right to that registry. I knew about IDEX, but chose Gamma anyway, I liked the idea of being a member of the Founders. However I dont want my sacrifice or any other FHR member’s sacrifices, be lessened for those that bought in cheaply via IDEX, or those that received the generous bounty at Spatial.

When you earn VIP status by early buyin at ICO or Gamma, that status should be permanently protected. That was a part of the package deal.
Just like any business over the centuries, those that bought in at ground floor, got Founder’s Shares. Which were worth a fortune years later. Nobody ever had a chance to buy them past the original sell time. Same for the FHR, this is for those that bought in during that limited time frame. Or through the company, once XYO was available on IDEX.
That’s my bits worth, thank you.
