The FirstBlood Token (1SŦ) initial distribution is in the form of a pre-sale. Participants may acquire 1SŦ at a discounted rate by pledging Ether (ETH) into the token sale smart contract.


If you have other cryptocurrencies such as ETC, BTC or STEEM/SBD, you can convert into Ether via a third-party conversion service, and then use the Ether to acquire 1SŦ.


The first hour of the crowsdale will be a Power Hour. During the Power Hour, 1 Ether will buy 170 1SŦ. After that, the price will change to 150:1, and then decrease every week until it reaches 100:1 in the fourth week.


The crowdsale will be capped at $5.5 million USD, measured in Ether. As soon as this amount is reached, the smart contract will stop accepting new buy-ins. At the end of the four week period, token transfers will be locked for two months.
