Hoard is raising funds between May 27th and August 24th, 2019. Up to 44% of the total supply of HRD Tokens are available now to active community members. Unpurchased tokens will be locked up at the end of this period. This token distribution event comes after approximately 18 months of development and a series of major milestone achievements. The first product by Hoard — the free and open source software development kit — will be released next month.A History: Hoard’s Inception to the Token
