HOW TO BUY ANATHA TOKENS

How do I buy ANATHA tokens?

    There are two ways to purchase ANATHA. You can use either Ether (ETH) or Bitcoin (BTC) to buy ANATHA directly through the website. Or you can use a credit/debit card and buy ANATHA directly through the Anatha Nexus, our app. Just download the Anatha Nexus, click BUY, and follow the instructions —which are basically the same as buying anything online.

What if I want to buy more than $20,000 worth of ANATHA?

    The limit of our partner, Simplex, is $20,000 a month for each individual credit or debit card. If you want to purchase more using your currency, please contact us directly

Can I use my own currency to buy ANATHA?
What cryptocurrencies can I use?

    We accept ETH (Ethereum) and BTC (Bitcoin)

I bought ANATHA tokens but haven’t received them. What should I do?

    It can sometimes take up to a day for your tokens to be distributed to you. (If you purchased with either ETH or BTC through the website, go to your ORDERS and make sure you’ve sent your tokens to us.)

How do I register an HRA (@name)?

    You need ANATHA tokens to register an HRA. While a one year subscription for an HRA is one ANATHA, there are small network fees, so we recommend having at least two ANATHA when subscribing.

    Click on HRA in the side menu. Choose a @name that’s at least three letters long. If a name is not available, it will let you know. Click Purchase then Confirm. That’s it.

    You can register as many HRAs as you like. Within a given profile, all HRAs will point to the same addresses.

    If you want an HRA for a different wallet —with different private keys—you need to create a new profile within the Anatha Nexus and register an HRA from within that profile.

How do I receive ANATHA tokens?

    1. Click on ASSETS on the right side menu.
    2. Select the icon of the asset you want to receive.
    3. Click RECEIVE on the bottom of the screen. This will show you your address for that asset as both a QR code and a long string of numbers and letters.
    4. Click “copy” to save your address to your clipboard. Now you can paste and send that address to the person sending you tokens. (There is no security risk in sharing that address.)
    5. Once they send the tokens to you, you will see the tokens show up in your app under PORTFOLIO as well as under that ASSET.
    6. This may not be instantaneous as it sometimes takes time for the network to process the transaction. Don’t worry!

What information do I need to sign up to Anatha?

    If you’re creating an account to purchase ANATHA tokens using ETH or BTC through our website, you’ll need to provide your name and email address. If you’re creating a Profile in the Anatha Nexus, you don’t need to provide any information — unless you’re purchasing ANATHA using a debit/credit card in which case our partner, Simplex, will ask for your appropriate information.

Once I purchase ANATHA, what happens?

    If you purchased ANATHA using ETH or BTC, your ANATHA tokens will be held in escrow until your provide an ANATHA address (See your ORDERS). To find your ANATHA address, download the Anatha Nexus, click on ASSETS, then the ANATHA logo. On the bottom of the screen, click “RECEIVE” and “copy” your address.

    If you have your ANATHA in your Anatha Nexus, the next thing to do is register your HRA (an @name). One year of one HRA = one ANATHA token.

How long does it take to buy tokens on ANATHA?

    The transaction is like buying anything online. But, sometimes, it can take up to 24 hours for your ANATHA tokens to be distributed to you. This is normal — so don’t worry!

How do I send wire transfers to Anatha?

    If your wire transfers are supported in your country by our payment processing partner, you can purchase ANATHA via wire transfer from the Anatha Nexus application. Simply press the “Buy ANATHA” button, enter an amount, and choose the “wire transfer” payment option when prompted to do so.

Are there geographic restrictions to join Anatha?
How do I sell Anatha?

    Mechanisms to sell ANATHA tokens will be announced soon.

What is the difference between wANATHA and ANATHA?

    wANATHA is the “wrapped” version of our mainnet token — which means it is wrapped with code that lets it live on the Ethereum network. The place to buy wANATHA is through a decentralized exchange, Uniswap. When buying directly from us, you’ll be purchasing ANATHA tokens. wANATHA can be converted to ANATHA inside the Anatha Nexus. The two tokens are equivalent.

How do I buy ANATHA tokens with a credit/debit card?

    Download the Anatha Nexus (desktop or mobile, iOS or Android) and follow the BUY instructions. It’s like buying anything online.

Do I have to link my bank account?

    No. You can provide a credit/debit card.

GETTING STARTED IN CRYPTO

What is crypto?

    Crypto stands for cryptocurrency or non-national digital currencies — which is different from “digital” money. Most US dollars, for instance, are digital but they are not cryptocurrency as their supply is determined by a centralized body (the Federal Reserve).This is called fiat currency as it only exists via the fiat, or the command of a ruling body.

    There really is no one thing called cryptocurrency. There are thousands of cryptocurrencies, each with its own features and benefits. Bitcoin, for instance, is one; ANATHA is another.

    One way to think about crypto is as programmable money. It asks each of us: What do you want from your money? How do you want it to behave? How should value flow? The money of a government, fiat currency, is one way to do it—and an incredibly inefficient, often cruel way at that. Crypto allows for new, more efficient ways money can operate that create better outcomes (such as no poverty or hunger).

    An important thing to understand is that crypto is a new kind of thing, a new asset class, that is built using decentralized technologies (such as blockchain). What this means is there doesn’t need to be central body of people, like a government or corporate board, running it. It “lives” on a blockchain which gives it a lot of unique characteristics.

    For instance, it is transparent (usually; there are private blockchains, too, that can be opaque). You can see all the transactions that take place any time you want—which is very different from how the US Federal Reserve works! And because a cryptocurrency is distributed across many computers, it is highly secure as there is no one site to hack.

    Which also makes it unstoppable as there is no centralized set of servers such as are used by Internet companies. Think about it: you can shut down an Internet company simply by seizing all its servers (which the government does from time to time). But how do you stop a cryptocurrency when it’s run on different computers all over the world? This provides an increasingly important level of resistance to censorship.

    Crypto has a lot of benefits which we encourage you to learn about. Watch this master class. Perhaps, most notably, cryptocurrency creates untold efficiencies that let value flow to people who’ve been excluded from the cruel restrictions of today’s global financial system. By one estimate, 1.7 billion people have no access to banking because they can’t produce the required forms such as a birth certificate. Cryptocurrencies have the ability to be radically inclusive.

Is crypto legal?

    Yes, crypto is legal. There are regulations that differ country to country. But, not only is it legal, more and more corporations and financial institutions are buying it as it has outperformed the US dollar and other fiat currencies by quite a lot.

Is cryptocurrency “backed” by any government?

    No, cryptocurrency is generally not backed by any government. However, there are what are called Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) that have some of the features of cryptocurrency but are usually controlled by a government or its banking institutions. Cryptocurrencies, by and large, run themselves — perpetually running as a kind of computer program or algorithm rather than by a company or group of people. This makes them what we in the industry call “unstoppable” — by any force on earth. (And unlike any government, cryptocurrencies are transparent, there for all to see the code and all transactions)

Is crypto secure?

    One of the benefits of crypto is its security. Crypto generally lives on a blockchain which is what’s called a distributed ledger. What that means is there is a great big ledger that records all transactions. But rather than it being in the hands of just one person or company, such as a bank’s or government’s, this ledger runs across many computers, none of which have total control. This is why it’s called decentralized. So no one person can manipulate it. Which means there is no longer one computer to hack.

What’s a token?

    TA token is a unit of cryptocurrency. Unlike fiat money, such as the US dollar or Euro, you can purchase fractions of a token to many decimal points. Different tokens have different features and benefits. For instance, one ANATHA lets you register a human readable address (HRA, or @yourname) for one year. In this case, the ANATHA token functions as an access token. It is also a rewards token in that participants in the network continuously receive value in the form of ANATHA tokens. This is not as unusual as it sounds. Think about airline’s rewards miles, brand “points” that let you get swag, or arcade tokens that let you play games. Each crypto’s token has a different use case.

What’s an HRA and why does this matter?

    HRA stands for human readable address. Without an HRA, every time you send or receive any cryptocurrency tokens, you have to use an impossible to remember string of letters and numbers. Here’s an example of a Bitcoin address: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2. If it were yours, every time someone wanted to send you Bitcoin, you’d have to give them that address—which is made for computers to read, not human beings. An HRA pushes all that computer speak to the background so you can just tell someone, “Send my Bitcoin to @daniel.”

    What this also does is create a super simple digital identity system. With just an HRA, anyone can participate and share in the flow of value on the Anatha network. This is a far cry from, say, banks which demand all kinds of information from you—information billions of people don’t have. Anatha HRAs create a way of anyone, anywhere to have access to finance and value.

What’s a cryptocurrency wallet?

    A cryptocurrency wallet is how and where you store and manage your cryptocurrencies. There are different types of wallets — hot (a desktop and/or mobile app), cold (hardware device, usually USB), web (hosted & stored by a third party). While web wallets are the easiest to manage, they are also the least secure as they can be hacked. In addition, in most cases you don’t control your funds — the host does.

Is the Anatha Nexus a wallet?

    The Anatha Nexus has a wallet as part of the application. But unlike most wallets, the Anatha Nexus has other features such as its own token (ANATHA) and a seamless way to earn tokens just by registering your @name (HRA or human readable address). Fees on the Anatha Network are returned to all HRA holders every day (well, technically every block — starting October 1, 2021).

What’s a recovery phrase?

    The most important thing to know is this: You MUST save your recovery phrase. It’s your ONLY way to access your cryptocurrency funds if your computer (or phone) with the Anatha Nexus (or any non-web software wallet) on it dies.

    Your password will NOT work. Your password is a security measure in case someone you don’t trust accesses your device. (We do NOT store your password so can’t help you if you forget it.)

    If you’re re-installing a wallet, you NEED the recovery phrase, not your password, to access your funds should you forget your password or your device dies and you need to reinstall the application.

    If someone else has your mnemonic, they can drain your funds. So keep it secure!

Why do cryptocurrency wallets use a recovery phrase?

    Unlike most applications, a software cryptocurrency wallet — such as the Anatha Nexus — is decentralized. Which means no one — no company and no central computers — hosts the application. You control your own funds and information. This makes everything more secure as there’s no central site for hackers to hack. And, unlike banks, a decentralized wallet gives you absolute control over your own funds. No one, not even the government, can reach into your wallet and take your funds without your permission.

How do I store my recovery phrase?

    The easiest way is to write it down on a piece of paper and store it somewhere safe — waterproof, fireproof. In fact, write it down on several pieces of paper and store each somewhere safe.

    We recommend that you do NOT store it in the cloud where it can be hacked — even on your computer. IF you do store it on your computer, encrypt it with maximum encryption.

HOW TO USE THE ANATHA NEXUS

What is the Anatha Nexus?

    The Anatha Nexus is our application that, over time, will include more and more features — which is why we call it a nexus. Inside the Anatha Nexus is a “wallet” functionality that lets you store, send, and receive multiple cryptocurrencies, including ANATHA tokens. You can also register an HRA (an @name) which places you in the Anatha Torus where you will automatically begin earning more ANATHA tokens.

How do I create a new profile (or instance) within the Anatha Nexus?

    The Anatha Nexus lets users create as many unique profiles they want within the app. Each profile has its own private keys as well as its own password. This makes it easy for everyone in a household to use the same application or to handle different transactions for different purposes — such as for personal and business uses

    To create a new profile, click the + sign and create the account. Each profile has its own recovery phrase. Please write down each and save them someplace safe.

    Each profile has its own password and security. That means your accounts are safe. But it also means you need to remember each password and store each recovery phrase.

Do different profiles use the same recovery phrase (or mnemonic)?

    No — not unless you create the new profile using the same mnemonic! But each profile has its own “private keys” with its own mnemonic. So be sure to write down and store the mnemonic for each profile you create.

How do I buy ANATHA tokens?

    There are two ways to purchase ANATHA. You can either Ether (ETH) or Bitcoin (BTC) to buy ANATHA directly through the website. Or you can use a credit/debit card and buy ANATHA directly through the Anatha Nexus, our app. Just download the Anatha Nexus, click BUY, and follow the instructions —which are basically the same as buying anything online.

What if I want to buy more than $20,000 worth of ANATHA?

    The limit of our partner, Simplex, is $20,000 a month per credit/debit card. If you want to purchase more using your currency, please contact us directly

How do I register an HRA- Human Readable Address (@name)?

    First, you need ANATHA tokens. While a one year subscription for an HRA is one ANATHA, there are small network fees, so we recommend having at least two ANATHA when subscribing.

    Click on HRA in the side menu. Choose a @name that’s at least three letters long. If a name is not available, it will let you know. Click Purchase then Confirm. That’s it.

    You can register as many HRAs as you like. Within a given profile, all HRAs will point to the same addresses.

    If you want an HRA for a different wallet —with different private keys—you need to create a new profile within the Anatha Nexus and register an HRA from within that profile.

How do I receive tokens?

    Click on ASSETS on the right side menu.

    1. Select the icon of the asset you want to receive.
    2. Click RECEIVE on the bottom of the screen. This will show you your address for that asset as both a QR code and a long string of numbers and letters.
    3. Click “copy” to save your address to your clipboard. Now you can paste and send that address to the person sending you tokens. (There is no security risk in sharing that address.)
    4. Once they send the tokens to you, you will see the tokens show up in your app under PORTFOLIO as well as under that ASSET.
    5. This may not be instantaneous as it sometimes takes time for the network to process the transaction. Don’t worry!

How do I send tokens to someone else or transfer tokens to a different wallet I possess.

    Click on ASSETS on the right side menu and select the icon of the asset you want to receive.

    1. Click SEND on the bottom of the ASSET screen.
    2. In the ADDRESS field, paste the address of the person to whom you’re sending. MAKE SURE THE ADDRESS IS CORRECT as this can’t be undone.
    3. Type in the amount of tokens you’re sending or the currency amount.
    4. Click SEND (This may not be instantaneous as it sometimes takes time for the network to process the transaction. Don’t worry!)

What’s an HRA?

    HRA stands for a ‘Human Readable Address’. In order to send and receive tokens, you have to have an address that the network — computers — can read. These are long and complex. An HRA is something you create that’s easy to remember. So you can tell a friend, “Just send 28 Anatha to @daniel.”

How do I update the Anatha Nexus?

    Visit the Downloads page of our website for the latest updates.

How do I import a private key? (What are private keys?)

    The Anatha Nexus does not currently support importing private keys.

Do the mobile and desktop versions sync with each other?

    Yes. In order to sync them, be sure to log in using the same recovery phrase (also called a mnemonic, seed phrase, or passphrase).

What information does Anatha have access to?

    Inside the Anatha Nexus, we have no access to any of your information. If you created an account to purchase ANATHA tokens through the website, we have your email address — so you can come back and claim the ANATHA tokens you’ve purchased.

How do I get started with Anatha?

    To get started, you need to buy some ANATHA tokens. If you’re purchasing with ETH or BTC, you can purchase through our website. If you’re using a credit/debit card, download the Anatha Nexus (desktop or mobile, iOS or Android) and follow the BUY instructions. Once you have ANATHA tokens in your Anatha Nexus, register your HRA (@name) — One ANATHA = One year of an HRA. Once you have an HRA, you will automatically start earning more ANATHA tokens via the Anatha Torus.

How do I create an account with Anatha?

    To create a new profile in the Anatha Nexus, just choose a username and password (we do NOT store these) and be sure to write down your recovery phrase (we do NOT store that, either).

How do I close my Anatha account?

    To delete your Anatha account, log in to the account you wish to delete, then select “Settings” from the main menu. Select “Profile”, then scroll down and select the “Delete my Account” button. Then press to “Yes, Delete my Account” to confirm.

What happens if I lose my username, password, or recovery phrase?

    If you lose your username and/or password, log in using your recovery phrase. If you’ve lost your recovery phrase and just can’t remember it, we’re afraid there’s nothing we can do. We do not have access to that information so never stored it anywhere.

Can I register multiple HRAs?

    Yes! Register as many as you like. Not that HRAs within the same profile will link to the same wallet addresses. If you want a unique HRA a unique wallet, create a new profile within the application. Be sure to store your new recovery phrase as it will be unique. And then register an HRA — or as many as you like — from within that profile.

I tried to register an HRA and it says “Not Available”. What do I do?

    That just means someone else already registered it. So just as you try different variations when choosing an email address, try different variations on the HRA you want.

Can I buy an HRA from someone else?

    Anatha’s HRA marketplace will be launched in the Nexus application soon, which will allow you to buy, sell, and transfer HRAs.

Can I add my family members?

    Absolutely. You can create multiple accounts/profiles within the application, each with its unique security — username, password, and recovery phrase.

Can I manage multiple family members or accounts at the same time?

    Absolutely. Just create multiple accounts/profiles within the application, each with its unique security — username, password, and recovery phrase.

How do I create separate accounts with their own portfolios and logins?

    Click to + sign to create a new and unique profile.

WHY ANATHA

How does Anatha work?

    The Anatha Nexus, which is a desktop and mobile application, is a collection of financial and, soon, social applications. But unlike traditional financial institutions, such as banks, and social networks like Facebook, when you join the Anatha community, you become a partner sharing the value that the app creates. So rather than an executive team or “company” keeping all the revenue, it is shared with all Anatha participants (those who’ve registered an @name or what’s called a human readable address or HRA).

What is the Anatha Torus?

    This is our mission written to code — a mechanism by which the value generated on the Anatha network is returned to all HRA (@name) holders every day (beginning October 1, 2021; until then, value is accumulating).

    The goal is to elevate everyone in our network above the global poverty line. We are partnering with organizations around the world to help get our application into the hands of those who need it most.

How does the Anatha Torus work?

    The Anatha Torus distributes value generated on the network to all HRA (@name) holders every day (actually, every block. Note that daily distributions begin October 1, 2021. Meanwhile, rewards are accumulating). The sources of value include:

  • Network transaction fees
  • Half of all newly minted tokens
  • HRA subscriptions
  • HRA sales by owners


  • This is how that value is distributed:
  • 50% to HRA holders
  • 25% to a development fund
  • 25% to security token holders
What’s the inflation model for ANATHA?

    ANATHA has a fixed inflation rate of 1% per annum. 1% was selected to mirror the projected average global human population growth rate over the next 25 years. New tokens will be minted daily at a rate of 0.0028% of the total supply, where [ ( 1 + daily inflation rate ) ^ 365.25 = annual inflation rate ]. ‌ Newly minted tokens are not sold. They are distributed daily.

  • 50% to the ANATHA Torus (redistribution to communities and investors). Out of those:
  • 50% goes to HRA holders
  • 25% goes to a developer fund
  • 25% goes to security token holders
  • 50% to the Network Validator Reward Pool (NVRP).
Where can I learn more about how inflation works?

    Go to the Anatha whitepaper here. Then select “Technical Specifications” and scroll down to the “Distribution Module” section.

How is the value distributed in the Anatha Torus?

    At the heart of Anatha is the Anatha Torus. It is a mechanism, written into the very foundation of the network, that continuously distributes value created on the network to all HRA (@name) holders. The distribution happens automatically; it is the very rules of the application and its network. The terms of distribution are: 50% to HRA (@name) holders; 25% to ongoing development; and 25% to Anatha Inc. shareholders.

What’s a torus?

    A torus is a geometric shape. At Anatha, we see a torus as the behavior of our economic model in which the activity of people on the network — their information, attention, and engagement —-creates value that flows through the system and directly back to them, thereby creating a regenerative system of value creation and distribution

How is Anatha different from Bitcoin?

    There are thousands of cryptocurrencies, each with its own features and benefits.

    Bitcoin is kind of like the US dollar in that, in some places, you can use it to buy things. More often, people own Bitcoin as a “store of value”: rather than letting their money sit in a savings account which earns less interest than the rate of inflation (hence making them lose money over time), they own Bitcoin which tends to increase in value, at times quite dramatically (of course, it sometimes goes down in value. But, since its inception, Bitcoin has outperformed the dollar by a lot).

    ANATHA is what you might call an access or even utility token in that it gives you access to the Anatha human readable address (@name) and rewards program (the Anatha Torus). With one ANATHA, you can register your @name (a human readable address or HRA) for 12 months which places you within the Anatha Torus, a mechanism that returns value created by the community to HRA holders, continuously (in the form of ANATHA tokens).

Is buying ANATHA like investing in a stock?

    No, ANATHA is not an investment. When you buy stock, you’re investing in a company. So when the work of that company creates revenue or profits, your stock usually increases in value. With ANATHA tokens, it’s like you’re joining a co-op in which you are a participant, not an investor. The value you receive is created by you and other participants, not by the action of a company that’s independent of you.

How are tokens distributed?

    For the first year of its existence, the Anatha Torus accrues tokens based on network activity—the more people use it, the more value there is to be shared. The Anatha network went live on October 1, 2020. So on October 1, 2021, all the value that’s accumulated in that year will be distributed to all HRA (@name) holders. After that, tokens are distributed continuously (technically, with every block of the Anatha blockchain). You will need to “claim” them in the application but, whether you claim them or not, they’re there for you. That’s the beauty of the blockchain: this all happens automatically (according to what’s called a smart contract). Which means no one anywhere can change that; no one can claim your tokens or deny you your tokens.

What kind of outcome can I expect when I sign up?

    Once you register an HRA, you will be participating in the Anatha Torus which distributes the value from HRA subscriptions, transaction fees, and the minting of new tokens to all HRA holders. So while you’re doing things you’d already be doing—at first, storing, sending, receiving, and managing your cryptocurrencies—you’ll be receiving value, all while helping put value in the hands of those who need it most.

    Anatha is dedicated to helping solve global poverty. Over time, we will be partnering with more and more organizations that can put our technology in the hands of hard to reach impoverished peoples with the goal of returning enough value to them that it elevates them above the global poverty line.To read an independent report on how Anatha can actually eliminate global poverty, go here> [link to Eco-tone report]

How does Anatha help people around the world?

    We are continuously partnering with organizations to help put our technology in the hands of hard to reach impoverished peoples. We have a fund that provides them with their first HRA (human readable address or @name). Once they have that, they automatically start receiving value—along with every other participant (including you!).

    So rather than the philanthropic or government service model that involves taking money from some people and giving it to others, we created a system in which everyone prospers together. This is a regenerative, sustainable model that is fundamentally fair and equitable, based on activity rather than extraction (such as, say, taxes).

Can I or anyone else change the way value is distributed within Anatha?

    No. The terms of value distribution are written into the code itself—code that people in the industry call immutable. We couldn’t change it even if we wanted to. Which means that we, at Anatha, don’t give away anything. We created a system in which participants share in the value that’s created on that network. Look at it like this: Anatha is kind of like a co-op or community in which all participants (those who’ve registered an @username) share in the revenue that’s generated.

Is Anatha environmentally sustainable?

    Yes! The Anatha network, unlike the Bitcon network, uses something called Proof of Stake to record and run the network. This does not involve using any more power than, say, running your home computers or refrigerator. (Bitcoin uses something called Proof of Work that involves intensive computer use that does use a lot of energy, no doubt. But it uses a lot less energy than Google’s server farms.)

VALIDATOR

What is the process to become a Validator?

    The instructions for becoming a validator can be found here. Note: this is a technical process that is not suited for individuals who are not familiar with reading and operating command-line level code.

What are the benefits of becoming a validator for Anatha?

    Becoming a validator allows you to participate in validator rewards distribution (as long as you maintain your validator node properly). Becoming a validator also contributes to the decentralization of the Anatha network, by increasing the number of nodes that participate in the confirmation of transactions that occur on the network.

Where can I find Anatha’s technical specifications?
