No ICO. No promises of future development. Hex is done and works now.
Staking Hex is like getting free mining hardware and electricity. This concept pays stakers to hold the price up, rather than payer miners who dump the price. Hex has a lower inflation rate than Bitcoin, even after the rate was cut in half twice in its 10 years. The inflation is also delayed, because it's only paid on ended stakes, and stakes can last 10 years. Inability to trade staked coins increases the value of unstaked coins, and chance that some will early endstake and pay penalties to loyal stakers.
Around 12 million or more of the 18 million total BTC worth of HEX claims will be given to the stakers on day 353 by shares. And! It gets multiplied by the Viral and CriticalMass adoption bonus multipliers which can increase it up to 3x. The share price only goes up. Learn more on the Big Pay Day page.
Stakers that end stake early or late pay LOYAL stakers. Longer stake commit pays 20% more per year, up to 3x shares, (partial years are fine). Lower fees, lower inflation.

Let's say you want to make more bitcoin on your bitcoin. What are your options? You could lend your coins out and take the risk they're not returned, or you could try selling your coins for mining hardware and hope to get more coins back later. Lots of people have lost money trying either.
