I) You are witnessing history

This is one of the biggest burn in blockchain history.
No layer 1 blockchain decided to re-allocate such a big stake of their holdings.
We are happy to announce that "Blackhole" is now the biggest UCO holder !

II) How did the burn happen ?

Smart contracts in Ethereum are immutable by default.
Once you create them there is no way to alter them, effectively acting as an unbreakable contract among participants.

This is initial distribution hard-coded into our smart-contract :

38.2% Funding
23.6% Deliverables (90% Locked)
14.6% Network Pool (90% Locked)
9% Enhancement (Locked)
5.6% Team
3.4% Exchange Pf
3.4% Marketing
2.2% Foundation

You can check our smart-contract code here

As Ethereum smart-contracts are immutable what is "locked" is gone forever.
Nobody will ever be able to use those, this is why they are considered as burnt.

The reason we locked them in the first place was to achieve higher level of security knowing that once SWAP completed after Mainnet launch there will be no more use of this smart-contract.

Hence why to reach 1B maximum circulating supply :
- Burnt via "lock" = 4.3 B
- Burnt via Blackhole = 4.7B

Proof of the burn via lock is in smart-contract code here.
Proof of the burn via blackhole is on Etherscan here

You can see that blackhole wallet holds 4.7B UCO :


If you do the precise math, 9 090 135 953 UCO have been burned which is an excess of 90 135 953 compared to initial target.

This amount can be used to create liquidity pools on other chains while Mainnet is getting deployed. If by Mainnet the pool has not been used, it will be re-credited on Mainnet following our Tokeneconomics Template.

III) Burn Event

Burn : 90% of total circulating supply
Date : 12/12/2021

We will be sending all tokens to the black hole :   0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dead

You will be able to verify the burn via our smart-contract :
