In participating in the Holo ICO, you are supporting the development of the Holo ecosystem by purchasing HoloTokens.
What Are HoloTokens?
HoloTokens are custom ERC20 tokens made specifically for our ICO. They are stored in an Ethereum wallet, and can be sent from person to person, or traded on compatible exchanges. HoloTokens represent an increase in account balance on the Holo ecosystem, and can be redeemed for Holo fuel once the Holo ecosystem launches.

Token Contract Address
The token contract address for HoloToken is: 0x6c6ee5e31d828de241282b9606c8e98ea48526e2
This address is not the ICO contract address. Do not send ether to the token contract address! This address is used for tracking the amount of HoloTokens you own in apps like MyEtherWallet or MetaMask, or for looking up statistics about the token on services like etherscan.io.
The token contract address can be verified by visiting our ENS (Ethereum Name Service) entry: token.holo-host.eth.
Immediately after participating in the ICO and sending a successful transaction to the ICO smart contract from a whitelisted ETH address, HoloTokens were minted into your wallet. You can view them using the instructions below.
Note that you won't see a transaction of HOT being sent from the ICO contract address to your address. This is because on participation, HoloTokens are minted directly into your wallet. If your transaction was a success, your HoloTokens are in your wallet. View them with the instructions below.

Redeeming HoloTokens for Holo fuel
HoloTokens are just that—tokens. They represent a future account balance of Holo fuel on the Holo ecosystem. Once the Holo ecosystem launches, holders of HoloTokens will be able to exchange them for Holo fuel by sending them to a Holo smart contract after which they will be destroyed and an equivalent amount of Holo fuel will be credited in the the user's account.
