Swiss Lykke AG, a blockchain tech company that has its own token exchange platform will build the token system. When talking about this, the tech company said “In order to support our core conviction that any mobile and internet user should be able to participate in economic activities irrespective of the size of their contribution, we have developed advanced infrastructure with mass-market usability. We are excited to leverage our experience and expertise to support the mission of Emaar to bring value and usefulness to millions of users worldwide.”
The community token will be transferable, according to a blog post from the Swiss company. The post also mentioned that the token would operate across the ecosystem, providing access to property, malls, facility management, retail, hospitality, and entertainment for customers and stakeholders.
Lykke AG technology has already built Bitcoin asset-based tokens when Ethereum blockchain is not built. The token for the Community allows Emaar’s global clients and stakeholders to gain access to a complete reference and loyalty system for the first time, according to the position of Lykke AG. In addition, within the year of the token publication at the ETH blockchain, the post mentions a possible initial coin offer in Europe[ICO].
