Q1: How much money was raised through WTC ICO and sales? How much of these was used directly for WTC mainnet development, how much was used to fund hardware development which is the IP of Silictec, how much was used to fund nonrelated activities? Of the money used on Silictec R&D, will Waltonchain ever give benefit to WTC holders if the technology (eg smart box, clothes system) is sold to other companies like China tech giants? Or does Silictec and Mo Bing and team members keep the benefit for themselves even though the cost is from WTC community?
A1: Silictec and Waltonchain are two independent companies. In 2017–2020, Silictec provided paid core software and hardware support, child chain incubation and applied solution services.
