What Is Bytom?

Bytom (The Bytom Blockchain Protocol) will not be another Bitcoin, nor will it be Ethereum 2.0. Bytom is an intermediary connecting generalized blockchains with specialized blockchains. In the past, there has not been a complete and effective blockchain protocol for the purpose of exchanging diversified digital assets. Bytom is designed to be the public blockchain specifically for the area of asset management in an attempt to solve the following problems:


The mission of Bytom is to bridge the digital world and the physical world, and to build a decentralized network where various digital and physical assets can be registered and exchanged. The goal of Bytom is to become the world’s largest dedicated public blockchain platform, connecting various asset classes to the blockchain, enhancing the liquidity, security, and value of theseassets.

Bytom will greatly promote the exchange and flow of “byte information” and “byte assets” with value attributes, and via contract and configuration create new “byte assets”. Bytom is also a type of intermediary, becoming an economic body generating profit from data and an amplifier to the performance of digital assets. In the future, these digital assets will not only be used in daily life, but can also be artificial intelligence, provide “digital food” for equipment in the Internet of Things, and to increase the influence of the digital world on the physical world.

Bytom Native Assets

1. Bytom Coin Basis of Value - Bytom Coins are the native asset on the Bytom Blockchain. Bytom Coin’s value comes from its ability to easily characterize and measure the digital economic activity on the Bytom Blockchain. Bytom Coin represents both the ownership of the Bytom Blockchain and the right to use it: use of the Bytom Blockchain will incur a fee in Bytom Coin, reflecting the right of usage characteristic of Bytom Coin; holding Bytom Coins represents owning a piece of the Bytom Blockchain, essentially being a shareholder of the Bytom Blockchain, and therefore able to participate in the highest-level governance of the Bytom Blockchain, reflecting Bytom Coin’s ownership characteristic.


2. Distribution of Bytom Coin - Bytom Blockchain’s tokens: Bytom Coin (English Symbol BTM), total of 2.1 billion, split in the following

Business Development




7% of Bytom Coin will be distributed to Private Equity investors including angel investors and institutions. Primarily for providing resources and technical expertise in early development.


30% of Bytom Coin will be distributed during the ICO. The BTC/ETH received during the public sale will be used for funding startup operations of Bytom Blockchain including development, cryptographic audits, marketing, legal, financial affairs, third-party audits, as well as the initial computing power needed to deploy the blockchain.

20% will be reserved for the Bytom Foundation. This amount will be used for project development incentives; furthermore, upon successful completion of the ICO these funds will be frozen for one year. Afterwards the funds will be unfrozen over four years with 5% unfrozen each year. At the same time, the initial hash power deployed through funding by the Bytom Foundation will also act as incentive for development operations and the continued support of Bytom Coin.

10% will be reserved for Bytom Coin business development. Business development funds will mainly be used to pay exchange listing fees for Bytom Coin, developing commercial applications of the technological standard, maintaining the ecosystem of the Bytom Blockchain, and so on.

33% will be reserved for mining rewards. Bytom Blockchain consensus operates by the POW mechanism, mining rewards will halve every four years until no new mining block reward is produced. In the first four years from when Bytom Blockchain is released, 86.625 million Bytom Coins will be mined each year. In years five through eight 43.3125 million Bytom Coins will be mined each year, and so on. 1‰ of Bytom Blockchain mining yields will be donated to foundations and non-profit organizations researching the ethics of artificial intelligence.

Getting Started With Bytom

Bytom is an interactive protocol of multiple byte assets. Heterogeneous byte-assets (indigenous digital currency, digital assets) that operate in different forms on the Bytom Blockchain and atomic assets (warrants, securities, dividends, bonds, intelligence information, forecasting information and other information that exist in the physical world) can be registered, exchanged, gambled and engaged in other more complicated and contract-based interoperations via Bytom.


Participants of the Bytom Blockchain ICO, please carefully read the Bytom Blockchain technical white paper and economic white paper, comprehensively recognize the risks of the Bytom Blockchain ICO investment characteristics and technical characteristics, consider one’s own personal risk tolerance, and use rational judgment and careful decision making.

The Bytom Blockchain project team will follow the published white paper contents, use the crypto funds raised by the ICO rationally, standardize project management, and fulfill their duties with honesty and trustworthiness, and diligently and responsibly manage their obligations, but even so the buyer is subject to the risk of loss. The risks include the following:

1. Policy Risk - Since the State Regulators haven ’ t made a clear and specific regulations towards ICO, the ICO market may fluctuate with the changing of policies and regulations, from which ICO inventors may suffer loses.

2. Economic Cycle Risk - The development of ICO project and digital assets management may be directly or indirectly affected due to economic cycle. We will adjust the speed of development accordingly and release the achievements in time.

4. Technology Risk - ICO project has been proved its feasibility in concept design at the beginning and published part of the code structure and milestone design. However, it doesn ’ t mean the development won ’ t be affected by insufficient estimates of technology test and roadmap.

5. Token Risk - The recognition of Bytom token may be limited by the users and market. The final acceptability and popularity is not certain when Bytom passes the tests and goes online. Bytom token doesn’t represent any rights and interests of token owners. Bytom team won’t buy back or make any commitment to the profits.

6. Price Risk - After Bytom enters digital assets exchange market, the price may fluctuate dramatically due to the 24-hour trade and manipulation of market makers and universal government policies, which is unlike the price limits mechanism of stock market in China. Therefore, Bytom team won ’ t give any express warranty or hint towards the price and value of Bytom. Owners are supposed to know that digital assets exchange market is unsteady and price and value may fluctuate greatly and even crash.
