Money collected for Class A Shares will be invested into projects in the community they were pledged. Before being awarded, the coop Board will work with Project Leaders in the community to negotiate the Project Agreement. The agreement will clarify how ROI will be made, which must be over a period of not more than 5 years (see Comcoin Exchange for more).
