I have issues with the 120% given to those using Lisk tokens for investments, this is business and getting emotional attached to a project seems unwise to me, so who is going to bear the 120% loss, I assume other investors using other currencies, lets say I want to invest 1BTC which is equal to 2.2BTC in Lisk valuation. I just don't understand the disparity, and I hope you've notice a common trend now of token value dropping significantly below the ICO price when listed on the exchange. I believe any rational investor would rather wait for some of those that would benefited from 120% to dump their tokens before buying.
We thought long and hard about the bonuses we offer and the various effects it may cause, and this structure will remain.
Offering such significant bonus for Lisk (although keep in mind, that the 120% is only the first 24 hours, and in that same time period there is also a 30% BTC bonus) is a cold hard business decision.
Simply put we want lisk. A lot of it. We want people who hold lisk but want to get out to "donate" it to us. We want other investors to convert their other coins into Lisk before investing.
Sure we want BTC and we will get it too as the TEC progressing, but until that we welcome the Lisk.
Smart early investors won't avoid ARK because of this, they will just buy Lisk and use it.
