A new cryptocurrency project has been started in September 2020 with the purpose of a creating a digital token aimed at the Amateur Radio (HAM) community worldwide. The HAM token is based on the BitcoinCash(N) SLP technology.
The HAM digital token can be used for many purposes, such as for an appreciation, savings and utility.
A use-case specifically for radio amateurs: Usage of the HAM token as an utility for a QSL-Direct transaction or funding DX-Peditions without the costs of brokers, are two of the many ways of using the HAM token.
The uses of this highly versatile HAM token are virtually unlimited.
While it has been just a 6 months ago since the HAM SLP token has become available, over 1387 active members in the Telegram HAM community channels have joined meanwhile and new users are welcomed on a daily basis.
Today’s count shows over 6,367 active SLP wallets holding HAM / WRS tokens and 24,619+ block-chain transactions took place.
The WRS is the reward token for HAM holders.
One important aspect to mention is the fact that there are no extra costs for a HAM token transaction other than a BCH gas fee of a handful of Satoshi’s (about 0.000003 BCH).
This for the usage of the underlying block chain to announce and lock the token transactions.
The cost of a single transaction is less than one or a few cents USD.
The insanely high broker transaction fees for ordering a QSL card direct or any other reason for a transaction would be a thing of the past when the HAM token is used as an utility. The price of HAM or WRS tokens itself depends on availability and demand on the various exchanges.
It is pretty straight forward on how-to start using the HAM token. To start, the usage of a mobile phone (or a windows computer) and a SLP- token-enabled personal wallet and Telegram app are required. An explanation of how to find, install and use the wallet app and how to claim HAM tokens can be found in “Pinned messages” in HAM Telegram app channels.
Note: We have a Faucet channel available for the early adopters dispensing some free HAM tokens, so be quick to fetch some while they are still available!
