In developing the Hot Cross token and its underlying supply, we realized that we had an opportunity to develop a tool that would not only serve our incubators and strategic partners but also potentially B2B clients with sophisticated vesting needs or teams that wish to engage in vested rewards for their community. If you’re a team that would like to take advantage of vested rewards or tokens across multiple chains (or just a single chain), get in touch with us.

The Hot Cross token and Vesting contracts have been fully audited by some of the industry's best. You'll find those on the audits page.
