The Pangea Jurisdiction

Frontier Technology

Pangea is a secure mesh network forming a distributed web, accessed through a smartphone chat user friendly interface. Blockchain agnostic smart contract functionality powers the Pangea Jurisdiction, currently implemented with Ethereum.

BITNATION: Borderless | Decentralized | Voluntary

Bitnation is the world's first Decentralized Borderless Voluntary Nation (DBVN). Bitnation started in July 2014 and hosted the world’s first blockchain marriage, birth certificate, refugee emergency ID, World Citizenship, DBVN Constitution and more. The website proof-of-concept, including the blockchain ID and Public Notary, is used by tens of thousands of Bitnation Citizens and Embassies around the world. Bitnation is the winner of UNESCO’s Netexplo Award 2017, and has been featured by the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, BBC, CNN, WIRED, VICE, TechCrunch, The Economist, Russia Today among many others.

Pangea Arbitration Token (PAT)

The Pangea Arbitration Token (PAT) is an ERC20 compatible in-app token for the Pangea Jurisdiction. The PAT token is proof-of-reputation for Citizens, issued when Citizens create a contract, successfully complete a contract or resolve a dispute attached to a contract. PAT is an algorithmic reputation token; an arbitration currency based on performance, rather than purchasing power, popularity, or attention.

If you have any questions or would like assistance, please e-mail us at [email protected]. PAT tokens are issued by BITNATION GmbH, Baarerstrasse 10, CH-6302 Zug, Switzerland, CHE-166.292.408. Click here to read the BITNATION PAT Token Sale Agreement.

Secure and Transparent

PAT is an ERC20 (Ethereum based) industry-standard token, easily integrated with wallets and exchanges. PAT code, the DBVN Multisignature code, and the BITNATION TSE Contract code has all been designed and audited by leading Solidity experts. All contracts are open source and can be found on our GitHub. Funds are secured by Bitcoin Suisse AG in a multisignature wallet.

Hard Capped

The PAT TSE will raise funds for Pangea development and to power Bitnation’s ecosystem. 34% of PAT will be sold during the TSE, including a pre-sale. To ensure the token is not diluted, the TSE is hard capped at US $30 Million. This is designed to increase PAT token value as Pangea evolves and gains market adoption.

Powers Pangea

More than a third of PAT is reserved to power the Pangea Jurisdiction. Citizens garner non-tradable reputation tokens based on successful contract execution. Arbitrators and contracts also accumulate non-tradable tokens. Citizens are rewarded with PAT for accumulating non-tradable reputation tokens when milestones are reached.
