PAPER is a decentralized utility contract utilizing the ERC20 smart contract capabilities combined with additional technologies to transfer information between blockchains and between smart contracts within a blockchain.
Any tokens in existence were originally acquired for free, without any renumeration to the project or anyone associated with the project, or to any other entity related to the project of any kind. No funds have been raised or invested in the process of creating this system by people outside of the project. There has never been a venture capital, ICO, or any other type of raise.
If you consider PAPER or INK an investment or are in a jurisdiction that could classify PAPER or INK as an investment or monetary instrument, you are not authorized to utilize the features of this protocol, or interact with any of the associated contracts or technologies, as your usage is not compatible with the design and intent of the system.
