Was there a pre-mine?
Yes there was a 50% pre-mine and this was made available on the Waves Platform. This pre-mine is for airdrops and a way to distribute EOT for future businesses/ organizations. It is important to keep a reserve for use in future products as innovation has gone into producing products that use EOT.
The majority of this pre-mine is still under the developer’s control but a percentage has made its way onto the speculative market.
