Escrow is a method to increase the security of collecting, storing and distributing funds received during ICO using a multisig wallet.

Investors' money is accumulated on a multisig wallet, which operates on the principle of 3-of-4 signatures (2 selected experts for a specific project, Arbi team and ICO team). Thus, the funds are transferred to the ICO team upon each successful stage.

ICO's obligations and deadlines for each stage of the project are reflected in Whitepaper and RoadMap. If ICO team is not fulfilling those, the funds are returned to investors.

At least two Experts are selected for each ICO-client: legal and technical. More information about the selection procedure and experts operations can be found in our Whitepaper.
