I am working as a consultant on a new ETH based ICO campaign.
The arrangement is that they will pay me with their new tokens they are issuing through their ICO. The problem is, as far as I know, tokens are automatically paid through a smart contract to investors based on their ETH contribution.
I am wondering if there is anyway I can guarantee receiving the tokens? I have had to turn to stack overflow to get an answer, it is incredibly difficult to find relevant, reliable information online.
Are they able to transfer their tokens prior to their ICO to an ether wallet?
Any help would be appreciated!
