Description: We Created PALEOCOIN to power the new age of innovation in paleontology via block chain technology. We go into very specific details in our white paper about the utility of our token and the ecosystem we are developing.
However, In short, we seek to create a PALEOCOIN centered ecosystem where audiences of the current paleontological landscape can interact in ways that benefit all parties involved. Amongst these audiences are professional paleontologists, researchers from universities, curators from museums, hobbyists, and the public. By using block chain technology, we will allow these audiences to interact with each other in the realms of our three-pillared ecosystem. The three main pillars of our ecosystem consist of original fossil NFTs on the sologenic marketplace, the application we plan to develop with a tiered system of access, and the PALEOCOIN foundation. Please read our whitepaper to learn more about the individual pillars of our ecosystem. Essentially, we plan to introduce a more advanced way of connecting people who love the paleontological sciences regardless of their status in the realm of education. We plan to increase interconnectivity within these audiences so as to achieve greater advancement and exposure to the scientific field of Paleontology all while allowing holders of PALEOCOIN to participate in decision making of further developments and utilities of the token.
In summary, we designed PALEOCOIN as a cryptocurrency to solve real world problems and bring about unique innovating utilities to the field of paleontology. Its use case will ultimately educate people about paleontology; allow innovations to take place in the way people practice and share paleontology, and ultimately help researchers do their scientific research. We have aimed our core values and projects at getting all members of society involved in the field of paleontology at any age of life. We would love to have your support with our future endeavors as we acknowledge and appreciate you. We hope to hear from you soon.

Unique selling points: What makes this token unique, compared to the broader landscape of tokens?

PALEOCOIN is the first token that is created for the Paleontology community on the XRPL. A product of this tokens utility will help Masters students, PhD students and any college student interested in taking up Paleontology as a major. Additionally, it will also be used as a means to access additional utilities that will be created for the Paleontology community in the future as discussed in our white paper. These utilities will benefit professors, museums, paleo clubs/societies, and fossil collectors.

Purpose: What is the reason for issuing a new token, rather than using an existing? What purpose does this token serve, that is not possible with the native XRP token or other already existing tokens?

There are currently no tokens or projects on XRPL that is focusing on Paleontology. We are developing innovating utilities, building an ecosystem, marrying blockchain and different stakeholders within the Paleontology community so that we can facilitate new and more efficient ways of doing things in Paleontological sciences. The PALEOCOIN token is in the heart of the ecosystem and the utilities as described in the whitepaper is backbone to the functionality of the ecosystem.
