Frequently asked questions
What is Rebellious?
Rebellious is a company based in the Netherlands. Rebellious is the true people’s currency. Using our unique approach, we aim to build a strong currency powered by an even stronger community that’s motivated by growth rather than greed.
What is the Rebellious team composition?
The Rebellious team consists of a group of cryptogeeks who joined forces to make a stand. The team consists of members with many years of experience in the e-commerce market, as well as in cryptocurrencies. We really don’t think it matters though. Fancy titles and big CVs have been used to attract and mislead investors in this market. This is where we want to draw the line. We don’t need an ex-CEO of some world leading firm to be the face of a crypto revolution. We want to build this project from the ground off with our community. https://www.rebellious.io/team-rebl/
What is Proof of Airdrop?
Let’s be clear, Proof of Airdrop is not a mechanism similar to Proof-of-Work or Proof-of-Stake protocols.
We want to build a community in which every crypto-enthusiast has an equal opportunity to grow both the project and their own portfolio. Using Proof-of-Work protocols and mining would just create another cryptocurrency dominated by mining groups.
Likewise, we do not wish to conduct an ICO as we don’t want Rebellious built on a money pump. Instead, we want an engaged community that feels affiliated due to their contribution.
Our Proof of Airdrop approach will serve as the first real proof that Rebellious is a true community project.
Can i read the whitepaper in my native language?
Our community has been very helpful from the start and therefore we are able to present the Whitepaper in a multitude of languages.

What wallets can be used to store the REBL tokens?
We have the desktop wallets for Windows, Mac and Linux ready. Wallets for Android and IOS are part of our development roadmap and we plan on having these ready Q1/Q2 2018.
While we recommend to store Rebellious is to use the Rebellious Wallet, Rebellious tokens can also be stored in the following other wallets:
- Myetherwallet; is an extremely versatile webwallet and supports a wide variety of ERC20 tokens.
- Ledger Wallet; is a small plug-in device that basically functions as an offline digital vault for tokens and coins.

No ICO? Where do the funds come from to support this project?
We do not wish to conduct an ICO as we don’t want Rebellious built on a money pump. Instead we want an engaged community that feels affiliated due to their contribution. With the efforts of the community and the guidance of the Rebellious team we want to proof that we can built a quality product. The REBL tokens will eventually create utility value by an increasing demand.

If not all tokens get distributed during the 40 day airdrop, the remaining amount will be burned.
When will the Bounty and Reward system be implemented?
We’ve already started with some tasks, but mainly this stage will begin on 1 January 2018 and will run for 1 year. There are 50.000.000 tokens reserved for this stage. Rebels will be able to earn additional tokens by completing specific tasks involving marketing, translating, programming, etc.

What is the token supply?
The initial supply will be 396.000.000. Max token supply is 696.000.000 with the proof-of-stake protocol in use.
Is the Rebellious token an ethereum based token?
Rebellious is an ethereum based token (ERC20 token). ERC-20 is simply a standard to which tokens built upon the Ethereum blockchain must adhere. The ERC-20 token is a way to introduce the Rebellious token to the world while we are developing our own blockchain. Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard gives flexibility in an application.
Will the code be open source?
Yes, all code will be open source. Check out our Github for more info on the code used for the Rebellious token. https://github.com/RebelliousToken
What is the 'Proof of Stake' protocol?
Proof of Stake allows users to lock up their tokens for a set amount of time, whether it be weeks, months or a year, and earn a percentage rate of new coins created. The REBL tokens are one of the first Ethereum-based tokens that will allow the users of Rebellious to earn more tokens by staking them. The Proof of Stake protocol is usually reserved for Proof of Stake blockchains. With Rebellious, one of the goals of the project is community inclusion. We want the members to have an active role in the creation of new tokens, a rate of approximately 10% per year will be rewarded to those staking their coins, with 30 days serving as maximum token age.
Where can i stake my REBL tokens?
If you store your REBL tokens in one of the official Rebellious desktop wallets, you automatically stake your REBL tokens and earn interest.
Do i have to leave my wallet ‘open’ to stake REBL?
No, there is no need to leave your wallet opened. The REBL token will stake anyway. The only requirement is that you have to ‘proof’ your stake by having the tokens stored inside your wallet. There is a ‘token age’ though that will require you to claim your interest every 30 days.
How and when do we claim our interest?
By keeping REBL in your wallet, you will be able to claim interest payments on your balance at regular intervals. The interest will be approximately 10%.
In order to participate in the Proof-of-Stake system, you will need to keep your REBL tokens in your wallet for a period of 10 days. Once 10 days has passed, your REBL tokens will activate and start earning you interest for every further day you keep them in your wallet.
This interest will continue to accumulate up to a maximum of 30 days, by which time you will need to claim it through your wallet. If you do not claim your interest, your tokens will not generate any further interest. Once claimed, the 30 days resets and your tokens start earning for you again.
If claimed regularly, the rate of interest paid on our REBL tokens is equivalent to roughly 10% per year.
Please note: If REBL tokens are transferred OUT of the wallet, the rest amounts’ token age will be reset to day zero. Meaning all tokens are inactive. It will again require 10 days for the tokens to activate.
What is the planned token swap?
This is the final goal for Phase 1 of the Rebellious project. Our ERC20 REBL tokens will be swapped for POS coins running on our own blockchain. This is planned for Q1 2019 and more info on this will come.
