Interested in joining the core team?

Since the announcement of the 200M SOLO Airdrop, we have been thrilled at how the community welcomed our decision. We are now sure that we have done the right thing and the team’s decision to release the SOLO tokens to the community was great.

Although we have written details on how to claim the airdrop, the community still has many questions that we are addressing in this FAQ.

Q: Who is Eligible for the AirDrop?

A: Anyone who establishes a Trustline to the SOLO Gateway address and holds XRP and/or SOLO at the time of snapshot is eligible to receive the airdrop.

Q: What is a TrustLine?

A: A TrustLine is a feature from the XRP Ledger to allow currencies other than XRP to be issued and transacted between accounts. It also allows accounts to hold a “limit” of that currency they wish to hold.

Q: When is the snapshot and distribution date & time?

A: On Dec 24th, 2021 at 8:00 PM UTC we will take a snapshot of the XRP Ledger and scan the accounts with TrustLines to the SOLO Gateway. Those who have the TrustLine established will be on the list to receive the tokens on Jan 20th, 2022 at 8:00 PM UTC.

Q: How much SOLO will be airdropped?

A: A Total of 200,000,000 SOLO will be airdropped to the eligible community.

Q: What is the ratio of the airdrop for XRP and SOLO holdings?

A: 100,000,000 SOLO will be airdropped to the accounts (with an established TrustLines) who hold XRP and another 100,000,000 SOLO will be airdropped to accounts that hold SOLO.

Q: Will I get SOLO airdrop if I have XRP and/or SOLO?

A: if you have both XRP and SOLO, you will receive the airdrop for both accounts (depending on the balances of each account XRP or SOLO, the airdrop amount could be different). If you only have XRP at the time of the snapshot, you will only receive SOLO from the 100M pool that is designated for XRP. If you only have SOLO at the time of the snapshot (XRP account reserve also counts as a positive XRP balance) you will receive an airdrop from the pool that is designated to both.

Therefore, if you have both you will receive an airdrop from both pools, if you hold only of the currencies, you will receive an airdrop from that specific pool.

For example, take Alice, Bob, and Joe.

Alice has a balance of:

XRP: 5,000

SOLO: 15,000

Alice will get a portion of the 100M pool designated to SOLO AND a portion of the 100M designated for the XRP pool.

Bob has a balance of:

XRP: 5,000


Bob will only get a portion of the 100M pool designated to XRP

Joe has a balance of:

XRP: 12

SOLO: 5,000

Since it is not possible to hold a TrustLine with a balance of 0 to the SOLO Gateway, Joe will receive a portion of the 100M pool designated to SOLO AND a portion of the 100M designated for the XRP pool (with 12 XRP as his contribution amount).

Q: How does this airdrop affect the supply of SOLO?

A: Around 2 years ago 400,000,000 SOLO were created to be used within the Sologenic Ecosystem. Of this 400,000,000, (Around 40,000 has been burned through fees) over half were locked to be used for a potential airdrop to expand the community. This means, the team is not minting new tokens (Which is not possible due to the fact the Sologenic Gateway has burnt its address and is not technically able to mint new tokens) and is in fact not increasing its supply causing inflation.

Q: How much SOLO will I get from this airdrop?

A: Depending on the number of accounts that claim the airdrop, the 200M SOLO will be distributed according to the total claimed amount.

Let’s assume the final amount of XRP and SOLO which are qualified for the SOLO airdrop at the time of snapshot is as follows:

SOLO: 20,000,000

XRP: 500,000,000

Then the number of SOLO Airdrops for the holders of XRP and SOLO will be calculated and distributed as below:

SOLO Airdrop Amount:

(200,000,000 ÷ 2) ÷ 20,000,000 = 5 SOLO per each SOLO Holding

XRP Airdrop Amount:

(200,000,000 ÷ 2) ÷ 500,000,000 = 0.2 SOLO per each XRP Holding

Q: How to claim through SOLO Wallet (SOLO DEX & Wallet mobile app)?

A: SOLO Wallet (SOLO DEX & Wallet mobile app) is a full-featured XRPL wallet with built-in DEX provided by the Sologenic Core Team. You can use this app to securely store your SOLO, XRP, or other issued currencies on the XRP Ledger.

Q: Interested in joining the core team?

A: If you are a developer with a passion to develop on the XRPL, please send us an email to [email protected]. SOLO Core team is young, energetic, vibrant, and multi-cultural. Let’s talk!


SOLO Token, DEX, NFT marketplace, and Airdrop

In this blog post, we outline the upcoming plans and additional utility proposals by the SOLO Core Team and the details of the upcoming SOLO Airdrop for SOLO and XRP holders.

To start with, it is important to understand the distinction between (SOLO Core Team) and (Manticore Securities AS). and are two separate teams. aka SOLO Core team’s focus is purely on the expansion of the Sologenic as a decentralized ecosystem while the team are working on the launch of an important use-case of the Sologenic ecosystem: Securities Tokenization (SOLO Core Team)

Around 2 years ago, the SOLO Core Team issued 400,000,000 SOLO Tokens to be used across the “Sologenic Ecosystem”. SOLO Core team is an independent community of developers with the passion of making the Sologenic Ecosystem successful. It consists of developers who are actively working on various open-source projects and use cases around the XRP as well as SOLO. (Manticore Securities AS) (Manticore Securities AS) is a Public Limited Company, registered in the EU with the aim of obtaining MiFID ll Investment Firm license to tokenize securities such as stocks and ETF on the XRP Ledger using the Sologenic Ecosystem. SOLO Tokens play an integral part in when the platform is fully operational. Currently, Manticore Securities AS is in the process of obtaining the license and has developed a test environment that simulates the tokenization of securities on the XRPL.

We consider (Manticore Securities AS) as the one of largest use-cases of the Sologenic Ecosystem. The potential this brings to the ecosystem is something we think can revolutionize the future of securities trading. More information can be found on

Sologenic Ecosystem Expansion

The SOLO Core Team, on the other hand, is actively looking to expand the use cases of SOLO as well as increase community engagement. The team has been building some of the greatest tools that work with the XRP Ledger such as the Sologenic DEX, SOLO Wallet, and the upcoming NFT marketplace.

With the popularity of the Sologenic applications on top of the XRP Ledger, the SOLO Core Team along with the feedback from the community has decided to increase the uses cases of the SOLO Tokens, and as such is proposing:

SOLO as a utility token on the Sologenic XRPL DEX

Sologenic DEX is one of the most popular DEX gateways to the XRP Ledger. At the time of writing this post, the DEX has over 2,000,000 views per week and an average of 150,000 transactions going through the Sologenic DEX on a weekly basis.

Currently, the developers behind the Sologenic DEX, decide about which pairs to list on the DEX UI. This process is not really beneficial for the community and we think the engagement and the power of DEX should really be decentralized too.

Community Voting Mechanism

For the above-mentioned reason, the team is proposing a voting mechanism using SOLO for all the listings and default pairs. Not only does this bring more value to the SOLO Token, but also more value to the projects on the XRPL and the community.

We will announce how the voting process will be conducted in the upcoming posts.

SOLO for minting, listing, and featuring NFTs on the upcoming Sologenic NFT marketplace

Sologenic NFT Marketplace

Last week, we announced plans to launch an NFT marketplace platform to the existing Sologenic DEX. Users will be able to mint and list their NFTs on the upcoming Sologenic NFT marketplace by spending SOLO Tokens. Featuring an NFT will also be possible by using SOLO as a payment by using a bidding system.

100% of the SOLO Tokens collected as fees will be burned instantly.

* The fees for these activities will be published in a future post closer to the launch of the marketplace, but in a nutshell, the token will be the key to listing NFTs on the platform.

This takes us to:

SOLO Token Aidrop

SOLO Token Airdrop

In order to engage the community to participate in the ecosystem and proposed governance utilities, the SOLO Core Team has decided to unlock 200,000,000 SOLO (Community SCF, and Expansion SEF) and conduct an airdrop to the XRP and SOLO communities.

How Will Airdrop Be Distributed?

The airdrop will take place after capturing a snapshot of the account balances on the XRP Ledger, which established a TrustLine to the Sologenic Gateway. The 200,000,000 SOLO will be distributed to those accounts that hold SOLO and XRP at the time of the snapshot.

The following ratio will be applied to the distribution:

XRP holders*: 50%

SOLO holders: 50%

* Please note that a TrustLine to the Sologenic Gateway must be in place for the account to be eligible for the airdrop.

Example: Let’s assume the final amount of XRP and SOLO which are qualified for the SOLO airdrop at the time of snapshot is as follows:

SOLO: 20,000,000

XRP: 500,000,000

Then the number of SOLO Airdrops for the holders of XRP and SOLO will be calculated and deposited as below:

SOLO Airdrop Amount:

(200,000,000 ÷ 2) ÷ 20,000,000 = 5 SOLO per each SOLO Holding

XRP Airdrop Amount:

(200,000,000 ÷ 2) ÷ 500,000,000 = 0.2 SOLO per each XRP Holding

When will the Snapshot be taken?

Snapshot Date/Time: Dec 24th, 2021 8:00 PM UTC

Sologenic Gateway (Issuer): rsoLo2S1kiGeCcn6hCUXVrCpGMWLrRrLZz

SOLO Currency Code: 534F4C4F00000000000000000000000000000000 Limit: 400,000,000

When will the SOLO Airdrop be Distributed?

Distribution Date/Time: Jan 20th, 2022 8:00 PM UTC

What if you hold your XRP & SOLO on a Decentralized Wallet?

For SOLO holders who take custody of their assets, no action is needed as these accounts already have a TrustLine established. We are in talks with the exchanges who support the SOLO Token to consider the airdrop distribution amongst SOLO holders.

For XRP holders who take custody of their assets, a TrustLine to the Sologenic gateway is required. This can be conducted using the SOLO Wallet app or the XUMM app by adding SOLO as a currency to your existing account.

What if you hold your XRP & SOLO on Centralized Exchanges?

XRP holders who hold their assets on exchanges will need to periodically check and see if their exchange is supporting the airdrop.

We will initially reach out to exchanges and ask them to distribute the SOLO tokens to their respective users. However, the XRP and SOLO community may help in asking their favorite exchanges to consider participating in the airdrop.

We hope that by distributing the locked SOLO to the community, we will have more user engagement on the Sologenic DEX as well as the NFT marketplace which brings a huge value to the XRP Ledger Ecosystem.

Top 10 Women in Crypto 2021


In honour of International Women’s Day 2021, Sologenic is highlighting some of the powerful women paving the way in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. The cryptocurrency industry is not excused from the gender imbalances that infiltrate traditional financial services. According to data released by Etoro, only 15% of bitcoin traders identify as women but why are there so few women traders? Is that because they are scared of taking the risk and trading seems to be only reserved just for men? With Bitcoin continuing to gain momentum in 2021, reaching new all-time-highs upwards of $60,000, there is no better time than now for all women to start trading.

Bitcoin — No Longer A Boys Club

While a large number of the early adopters of cryptocurrency were males, there is a strong and mighty force of females quickly adapting to the new technological landscape and investing in the new economy. BTC News report from late 2020 indicated that there has been a 43% rise in the number of women in the cryptocurrency industry. This goes beyond traders to include women holding influential positions in exchanges, organizations and more. It appears the new technology could be breaking down the barriers of entry that women faced in the traditional financial sectors.

Is crypto finally giving women and disenfranchised individuals a chance? The answer is not simply black or white, however, one thing remains clear; blockchain technology has the potential to help disadvantaged people through the decentralized network and transparency of the interactions. It can empower individuals, specifically women, to participate in the creation of this new technology without the threat of third-party intermediaries.

Here are the top 10 influential women in crypto in 2021

  1. Noelle Acheson, Director of Research at CoinDesk

With over 10 years of experience working in the financials sector, Noelle is well versed in corporate finance, fund management, and cryptocurrency. Since 2013, she has dedicated her efforts to writing and speaking about the potential impact of Blockchain technology and crypto.

2. Catherine Coley, CEO of Binance.US

As the CEO of Binance.US, Catherine leads the United States divisions of the largest global cryptocurrency Exchange. She started her career as a Foreign Exchange Analyst in Hong Kong and later in London at Morgan Stanley. Coley also held the position as Head of XRP Institutional Liquidity on the XRP Markets Team at Ripple. Coley has experienced the gender disparity in finance for her entire career leading her to co-found WAM: Women and Money. Women and Money was created as a non-profit to help women build their resiliency and skills related to money and to take control of their finances and reshape their financial future

3. Catherine Wood, CEO and CIO of Arc Investment Management

Catherine has over 40 years of experience in identifying and investing in innovation. She founded ARC to focus on disruptive innovation while also adding new dimensions to research. In 2018, Catherine launched Duddy Innovation Institute to offer learning opportunities to women eager to step outside the confines of traditional learning and influence a new way of learning. The Institute’s flagship course is Disruptive Innovation.

4. Linda Lacewell, Superintendent of the NYDFS

As the superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services, Linda oversees the regulation of fintech entities including cryptocurrency exchanges. Linda is known for her efforts to advance the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector in the United States. Unlike the superintendents that came before her, Lacewell is prepared to work along the grain of crypto, rather than against it.

5. Amiti Uttarwar, Bitcoin Core Contributor

Amiti is the very first confirmed female Bitcoin developer determined to diversify the Bitcoin community. When Amiti began working as the first female Bitcoin developer in 2018, she quickly realized the gender and race imbalance in the space. Amiti has become internationally recognised not only for her technical ability but her dedication to building a better, more inclusive future for bitcoin.

6. Elizabeth Kukka, Executive Director of Ethereum Classic Labs

As the executive director of Ethereum Classic Labs, a Member of the Board of Advisors at Matrix Exchange and Principate at Digital Finance Group, Liz brings a vast array of financial knowledge to the table.

Buy A Fraction of Tesla Stock And Trade it For Bitcoin

Have you ever wanted to buy shares in a company but realize you can’t even afford one share? That’s the unfortunate reality for a lot of people. Don’t worry though, that’s all about to change.

The Sologenic platform offers a revolutionary trading experience. Users can tokenize 40,000+ stocks, ETFs, and commodities from 30 global stock exchanges. Anybody can buy fractions of stock, tokenize real-world assets, and trade them with other people, 24/7. There are no middlemen, no brokerage fees, no wait times. Built on one of the fastest blockchain networks, Sologenic users can tokenize assets almost instantly, on a transparent, public ledger.

What is Tokenization?

Sologenic generates stablecoins backed 1:1 with real-world assets. Each stablecoin represents the ownership of real-world assets. Once tokenized, the asset issued on the blockchain is denominated with the suffix Ƨ, for example, a tokenized asset of Tesla stock (TSLA) is represented as TSLAƨ.

To tokenize something means to represent it digitally via a token. Anything in the world, tangible or intangible, can be tokenized. For example, a house can be tokenized. Say there is a person who wants to own some real estate but cannot afford a whole house. They could instead purchase part of a place, e.g., the living room or the driveway. Each part of the house would be worth something individually and represented digitally on the blockchain. The tokenized version would mean the real thing and be backed 1:1.

Another example would be a group of people who would like to put their money together to buy an art piece. Each person can contribute an amount, and their contributions will be represented digitally, as tokenized assets, on the blockchain.

Sologenic Benefits

Why should we tokenize assets? First, blockchain technology is transparent, which means that each transaction appears on a public, decentralized ledger where it cannot be tampered with by someone. There are three other main benefits of tokenization more practical and beneficial than traditional trading.

  1. Pool orders

Pool Orders are a unique trading feature of Sologenic. Pool Orders allow users to buy or sell fractions of shares. For example, Amazon is currently worth more than $3000 per share. If a user only has $100 to invest, they can use a Pool Order. Investing $100 would buy approximately 3% of a share of Amazon, or in other words, 0.03 Tokenized Amazon stock.

On the Sologenic Platform, a pie chart will show how many other users have contributed to the pool. Once there are enough contributions from users to purchase one share, the platform will execute the order, and the tokenized Amazon shares will be available in the user’s Sologenic account.

Pool Orders open up the doors to investing for anybody currently priced out of the market.

2. SOLO Cards

Sologenic users can spend their tokenized assets via SOLO Cards online and in-stores, wherever traditional credit cards are accepted. SOLO Cards come with varying benefits, such as monthly cashback. One of SOLO Cards’ significant advantages is that users can immediately spend their profits. With traditional brokerages, users would have to sell their assets and then transfer their money into their bank account, taking days to settle and involve large fees. With SOLO Cards, users can spend their money right away, without going through so many hoops to access their cash. SOLO Cards users can select which crypto or tokenized assets they’d like to spend, all in a few clicks.

3. 24/7 Trading

Using Sologenic’s Decentralized Exchange (DEX), users can trade tokenized assets for cryptocurrencies such as SOLO and XRP. The DEX is available for users to trade 24/7, even when traditional markets are closed. Unlike some other tokenizing platforms, Sologenic users will hold their wallets’ private keys, providing them complete ownership and authority over their assets. Users can safely store their tokenized assets in the decentralized SOLO Wallet app if they wish.

Who Can Use Sologenic?

Sologenic aims to make the stock market accessible to everyone through the tokenization of assets. There are billions of people in the world who cannot access global assets, such as low-income families, people whose finances are restricted, people who do not have access to learning tools about the stock market, and people who live in risky countries with geopolitical uncertainty. Another problem with the current financial market is that people must go through several hoops to trade on stock exchanges worldwide. For example, a person in Canada must go through multiple brokerages to invest in companies listed in China or Japan.

Seasoned investors and new traders can use Sologenic to tokenize assets. There could be several reasons why an investor would like to tokenize assets, such as:

  • Diversification
  • Dividend income stream
  • Capital appreciation
  • Hedging against other investments

Sologenic offers investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios, as well as trade with other users all over the world with the decentralized exchange. Traditional brokerages do not provide users the ability to trade with others. Sologenic is therefore breaking down barriers and revolutionizing how we invest. Soon, Tesla stock won’t be out of reach for anybody.
