Swytch will use the funds generated from the Token Generation Event (TGE) - often called an initial coin offering - to finance the scaling of the Swytch network. This will include business development, marketing campaigns, technology development, bounty programs, and strategic partnership development. The Swytch TGE will also be used to fund Swytch's parent organization, the Token Commons Foundation (TCF). The mission of the Token Commons Foundation is "To build a more sustainable and equitable future through the creation of a commons-based blockchain protocol." The TCF protocol will leverage a commons governance structure that enables autonomy and self-determination and encourages cooperation and inclusion. The Foundation will support open-source research and development of technologies and applications to build the protocol. As a non-profit, TCF will seek to coordinate and organize efforts but will not seek to concentrate interest in favor of any individual or entity. THe TCF will encourage our partners to collaborate and cooperate in the spirit of the commons and work together to capture the collective potential of our global community.
