Tokens are purchased from the buyback pool as needed to log user transactions The buyback pool offers a guaranteed token price but the length of time it will take is not.
Tokens are purchased first come, first serve in a row with ONE token from the first person, then one from the second until the end of the line is reached it then repeats. This ensures that no matter the size of your holding everyone has a fair chance.
At this stage, we cannot make predictions about the length of time it will take for your tokens to be purchased. Tokens are purchased on an as needed basis to batch qualified transactions to the blockchain so the more users we have as we grow the more tokens we will purchase.
To make accurate predictions we need consistent data that shows how many transactions are occurring and how that compares to the number of tokens in the buyback pool. Due to the fact that we are in the early days of our rollout, collecting this data will also take time.
Qualified transactions that have fees attached and require tokens are - Mass payout, loading Cash, Mobile Phone Top Up, Bill Pay, Funding and payment of Microloans. There are no charges for card transactions so when the user is at the store and they pay with their card that is free.
