In this informative article written by GIANT CEO Mikhail Maximov about the first year of the GIANT project, he explains the role of core team and what they have accomplished so far. He explains that GIANT did a "fair launch" which means that the team did not do a token sale and accept money directly from investors. He also talks about premining and it's place in the funding of a new project and governance in moving forward.
He gives us the Core Team's mission in the future of a project and talks about the dependency of the trustworthiness of the team and the faith of the investors in keeping the project alive. The article is a less than 5 minute read and is well worth your time. Whether you are currently a GIANT investor or thinking about becoming one, it gives you an insight into the integrity and transparency of the Core Team. I have been with GIANT since almost the beginning, and it's my most trusted project.
