Havven is a decentralised payment network and stablecoin that utilises a dual token system to reduce price volatility. The fees from transactions within the system are used to collateralise the network. The collateral is secured by the blockchain, enabling the creation of a new asset-backed stablecoin. Each transaction will generate fees that are paid to holders of the collateral token, and as transaction volume grows, the value of the platform increases. This permissionless, low-fee, and stable payment network will enable anyone anywhere to transact with anyone else. We will be announcing instructions to our airdrop campaign where you can receive an allocation of Havven tokens during the event.

Airdrop: 04 February – 14 February 2018
Whitelisting: 21 February – 28 February 2018
