An ICO is a form of attracting investments on mutually beneficial terms in a form of sale to investors of a fixed amount of digital cryptographic currency (tokens).
Blockchain is a distributed database for reliable storage of different information on thousands of computers located all over the world. This system is very innovative because it is impossible to destroy, hack or forge it, and the information recorded in it will stay in its initial form forever.
ЕСОS is a project on the development of decentralized software for inspection and quality control in the food industry covering the whole sphere of food products and drinks, including alcoholic ones. The system is aimed at the control of illegal trafficking and appearance in the market of counterfeit goods and fake and life-threatening products on the base of public blockchain with a distributed database resistant to theft, substitution, alteration and breach of information contained therein.
The main task of the project ECOS is combating the global problem of the sale of poor-quality, dangerous, counterfeit and illegal products, their sale and distribution in the world industry of food products and drinks, especially alcoholic ones, since they are very liable to adulteration today.
Every hour, billions of consumers all over the world will be able to quickly and easily trace and check all the categories of a selected product of interest to them, whether raw food products, semi-finished products, ready-to-eat food, soft or alcoholic drinks, themselves with no middlemen. The software will be available as an app in all languages on smartphones and tablet PCs. Here is a simple example of its use: a holder of ECOS tokens (shopper) selects a particular product in a shop with a special QR-code (based on blockchain), applies its smartphone to the product and reads the QR-code of the product. After that the program will provide a public blockchain storage with the product description: (safety, naturalness, healthfulness and quality) after which the consumer can analyze whether this food product or drink complies with the safety standards + its expectations.
Due to the popularization of the software ECOS + due to quick shake-out of fake products from the market and beginning of the mass use of the technology, the formation of a trustworthy and quickly-growing business community on the part of manufacturers and buyers will start, in which there will be no place for fakes. All the products being sold will have a permanent 100% quality. The development of such strong, transparent, honest and trustworthy business community will decrease and stabilize prices for the proposed qualitative goods. Billions of consumers all over the world will stop overpaying big money for poor-quality and counterfeit products. Illegal manufacturers and sellers of fake products will become unable to enrich themselves at our expense.
1+ Take advantage of the trade in ECOS tokens at a higher price when entering the stock exchange or in the nearest future in the course of increase in the market cost and popularization of the software ECOS (a good classical example is Ethereum, whose tokens during the ICO in summer 2014 cost less than one cent and by the beginning of September 2017 their price increased to almost $400).
2+ Use ECOS tokens for the intended purpose by getting access to the software and the declared services for free. Since we will patent a unique technology, then due to the popularization of the software ECOS there will emerge a deficit in tokens and they will cost more.
3+ ЕСОS tokens can also be used to pay for internal networks services of the project. Tokens will grant you an access to the extended functionality of the system and extra opportunities for the building and adjustment of apps in the distributed network for file storage.
The ICO will be launched on 15.02.2018 at 12:00 UTC.

You can buy ECOS tokens only using your personal cryptocurrency wallet to which you have full access; you may not buy tokens using a wallet at the stock exchange because in this case it is not you but the stock exchange who will get these tokens.
To the ECOS wallet address specified on the official website, you enter on your personal wallet an amount which you are going to spend to buy ECOS tokens at the rate applicable at this time. Make sure that you have enough money on your personal wallet + you have enough money to pay a fee for the transaction. After that you confirm the transaction by entering the code of your wallet. The system is organized so that as soon as the selected amount is received on the ECOS account, the system automatically transfers to you the particular specified amount of ECOS tokens for this sum. It usually takes less than one hour, but in case a lot of people are trying to buy tokens at the same time, the network can become overloaded and the process can take up to 2 days. If you use a bank card in fiat currencies of EUR or USD, everything has to be done manually, which takes a bit more time.
