Internet Computer Reboot (ICPR), the community-driven project that was forked from the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP), aims to create a more decentralized version for the original ICP protocol. Today, ICPR is delighted to announce the official release of the new ICPR token.

The ICPR token release is relaunching the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) by forking the project to establish a fair, transparent and democratic control over the new network. The company aims to achieve this through a fair reallocation of tokens that had been unfairly vested by the Dfinity Foundation.

"The early ICP contributors and seed investors will get the new ICPR tokens according to their original ICP allocations," said Ross Jackson, a community developer in ICPR. "They will be able to claim their fully-vested token allocations without any additional locking or vesting schedule," he added. The project has outlined why and how the initial tokens of the ICP Reboot (ICPR) will be distributed to Dfinity’s original seed investors and early contributors here and here.     

The initial token distribution began on Oct. 4 and focuses on distributing ICPR tokens to Dfinity’s 375 seed investors and early contributors in the following phases:     

  • Phase #1 (Oct. 4–Nov. 4) — Claims and disputes: The pre-launch opt-in process to confirm and guarantee your grant.
  • Phase #2 (Nov. 4–Dec, 24) — Allocation to verified participants: Simultaneous allocation to participants in Phase #1 and continued post-launch claims and distributions.
  • Phase #3 (Dec. 24) — Allocation to remaining participants: Allocation to remaining seed investors and early contributors who didn’t participate in the previous phases.          

According to the research firm Arkham Intelligence, Dfinity “quietly allowed its Treasury and insiders to send 18.9 million of ICP to exchanges while making it extremely difficult for their longtime supporters to access the tokens they were promised.”

The ICPR will first be issued on the Ethereum blockchain as a standard and audited ERC20 token. However, it will transition to a new network when the mainnet is ready. Its relaunch will create an open and inclusive environment in which all can participate and contribute.
