Just Over $1.2 Million Raised Since Token Sale Commenced

Der Verkauf der Zentralafrikanischen Republik (WAGEN)’s Sango crypto token, which commenced on July 25, has reportedly started off slowly with just under 13 million coins having been sold to date. With the initial selling price set at $0.10 per coin, it means the CAR has now raised approximately $1.26 million since the commencement of the sale, ein Webseite tracking the token sale has shown.

While details about the coin sale as well as the technology used to anchor the crypto token remain murky, ein press statement released by a team that is promoting the project appeared to address these and other concerns. In the statement, the CAR team starts by addressing reports that the Sango coin is backed by bitcoin. The CAR team said:

SANGO, the coin of the Sango sidechain, will be fractionally backed by Bitcoin, which in simple terms means that the Central African Republic Treasury will consist of a Bitcoin reserve fund.

Being backed by bitcoin, therefore, means “Sango will be able to operate with wrapped Bitcoin (S-BTC) in the Sango ecosystem.”
