Who we are
xSPECTAR is founded by seasoned experts with diverse backgrounds: real-estate, law, finances, gambling, art and IT. What binds us is a strong interest in blockchain technology. We have joined our strengths to create a specialty Web3 project in the metaverse realm.
We aim to become the most innovative project within the blockchain space. Our level of ambition calls for some impressive milestones.

25–4–2022 | The launch of our ‘Fair Launch’ IDO.
xSPECTAR chose to do an IDO (Initial Dex Offering because we believe that this is a fair way to conduct a token sale. The IDO allowed us to give direct and equal access to all investors. The aim was to create a first-come-first-serve process where people received an opportunity to buy tokens in a chronological order.
Our native token is $XSPECTAR. This is our utility-driven token that will be used within the entire ecosystem of xSPECTAR. The first batch of 8.888.888 $XSPECTAR was sold at 0.08 $XRP to reward our early adopters.

1–5–2022 | The day we gave away a yacht tour.
As one commenter said: “This level of giveaway has never happened before on the XRPL.”
On May 1st we announced that the buyer with the largest order of $XSPECTAR in 48 hours would receive:
– a yacht experience to Ibiza for one day
– including fuel, food, drinks and crew
– for him/her and 5 guests
48 hours later, we informed the lucky winner who wished to stay anonymous.
14–5–2022 | SHO time! The launch of our Strong Holder Offering (SHO).
This is a fundraising mechanism, similar to a private sale, where individuals are chosen based on how many tokens they would like to buy.
The SHO enabled xSPECTAR to attract big agents and participants who align with the long-term success of the project and mission.
Individuals who chose to participate in the SHO were able to acquire an amount of XSPECTAR tokens for a discounted price.
About 3.5 million XRP was raised in the IDO and SHO together.
