ICO related Questions:
12. Is the PKT token a utility token? Could you explain what are the usages of the PKT token?
PKT is a utility token, it means any PKT holder may use the token to pay for Playkey cloud gaming service (short time rent of Playkey GPU powered servers to play video games); PKT is the only mean to pay for Playkey service, i.e. to have an access to Playkey service user needs to have PKT which he/she transfers to the miner who provides the service (the analogue is internal currency in computer games like gold in World of Tanks, which you need to have, to buy more powerful shells and consumables).
13. What factors will directly affect the price of the PKT token?
Number of tokens is limited, but service demand has a potential for growth => increase of demand for service leads to increase of PKT price on the market and vice versa;
Miners are not obliged to sell PKT tokens immediately after receiving them;
Playkey as a miner and as a licensor of a software solution (miner ought to pay some share of their PKT revenue to Playkey) may absorb supplies of PKT token on the market to decrease its price volatility.
The Playkey Foundation will be working closely with the miner community to recommend the most mutually-beneficial pricing. However, the final pricing decision will be left to the miners themselves. The Foundation’s goal is to build a sustainable business model so that gamers who are unfamiliar with blockchain technologies can experience good quality gaming easily.
