Polybius Project Estimates Over 500,000 Early Adopters as Crowdfunding Campaign Nears

Polybius Project Estimates Over 500,000 Early Adopters as Crowdfunding Campaign Nears

Bitcoin Press Release: Cryptocurrency friendly Polybius Project receives support from over 500,000 crypto-community members before the crowdsale launch.

April, 28, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia – Nearing the launch of the crowdfunding campaign for their digital cryptoproject Polybius, the Estonian company Polybius Foundation has declared their starting client base. The 500,000 strong user base of HashFlare cloud mining service, owned by the founders of Polybius Foundation, will help them smash their initial funding goals.

“The greatest projects happen, when innovative ideas meet meticulous implementation. The client base of over 500,000 active users, already interested in investing into the cryptobusiness provides us with a massive head start to accomplish our most ambitious goals.”

— Co-founder and Chairman of Polybius Foundation, Ivan Turygin

Polybius is the general name for the ecosystem connecting the Digital Pass remote identification service, storage of protected personal data, and financial services through Polybius Bank.

Digital Pass will become the universal all-European counterpart eID, with a wide range of functions, and more versatile than existing electronic identity cards. For example, in EU countries there is to date no single database for people’s health conditions, so with a prescription signed by a doctor in one country, you can’t buy medicine in another country. No educational database exists to record in digital format which courses have been attended, so in order to continue studying in a new place, you often need, as in the old days, documents on paper.

These and other problems will be solved by Digital Pass, developed by Polybius Foundation. Its users will receive a universal digital repository of their personal data in the blockchain, accepted by state and commercial organizations as equivalent to classical ID. For example, when providing urgent medical assistance in a foreign country, medical professionals will have access to their full medical history and insurance information upon a patient’s consent, with no excessive procedures or legal paperwork. A Digital Pass user will be able to decide for themselves which pieces of data to show to whom, while the repository’s security level makes information impossible to access without permission from its owner.

The Digital Pass’ launch will be organized by Polybius Bank, a payment institution under the auspices of Polybius Foundation. In those European countries which do not have their own eID, Polybius, as a banking organization, will be able to issue its own eID, officially recognized by all remaining EU states under the eIDAS directive of July 23rd, 2014.

“We are starting our journey as a payment service provider, allowing users to pay for purchases online conveniently and reliably, without third-party applications or entering unnecessary data when a phone contains all the tools for 100% guaranteed user identification: fingerprint, voice recognition, and facial recognition using the camera. We want to build the ultimate financial infrastructure, sort of a “financial Google”, which will not only simplify and reduce the costs of finance management for the people, but will also become a vital part of all aspects of their daily life, while at the same time providing them maximum control over their data.”

— Co-founder and Chairman of Polybius Foundation, Ivan Turygin

Polybius’ crowdfunding campaign, in the format of an ICO, starts this Spring and aims to raise more than $25 million. Everyone taking part in the campaign will be among the first to get a bank account and the first in line for the Digital Pass digital identity. After the project’s launch, everyone is welcome to join it.

Monolith Studio Launches Crowdsale for TokenCard – World’s First ERC20-Compliant Debit Card for Ethereum

Monolith Studio Launches Crowdsale for TokenCard – World’s First ERC20-Compliant Debit Card for Ethereum

Bitcoin Press Release: Monolith Studio announces the first ERC20-compliant TokenCard Etheruem debit card, crowdsale to start on May 2, 2017.

April 25, 2017, Singapore – TokenCard, the first debit card powered by smart contracts is about to do their initial token sale. Monolith Studio, the creators of TokenCard will, for the first time, bring the VISA payments network to Ethereum. This will allow token holders to use Ether as well as other ERC20 tokens to purchase items anywhere that accepts VISA debit cards.

TokenCard’s ‘token creation’ phase will mark the release of a new ERC20 token, called TKN, on May 2, 2017. TKN holders have a pro-rata share in an accumulation of different Ethereum tokens that accrue to the ‘TKN Asset Contract’. To download the whitepaper and register for updates, please visit the TokenCard website.

TokenCard is a project by Monolith Studio, a Web3 startup bringing Ethereum to the legacy world.

“We are witnessing the birth of the biggest shake up in financial history with the introduction of the Ethereum Economy,”

Said Mel Gelderman, creator of TokenCard.

“TokenCard is a platform that brings this new kind of economy to the general public through a clever trifecta of technology.”

“Users choose a Contract Wallet rather than having to deposit funds outside of their control. TokenCard VISA debit cards draw funds from this contract wallet that support Ether and almost any ERC20 token. Users can use the Token App to operate their Contract Wallet and manage their TokenCard, giving them a top-tier mobile banking experience that adds unique features into the mix like multi-asset spending.”

“For example, users can pay for their afternoon lunch with Ethereum tokens and can even split the bill between for example 30% DGX, 20% REP, and 50% ETH — all this while remaining in full control of their assets.”

Aside from providing a solution for the underlying Ethereum community, TokenCard is uniquely equipped to improve upon the entire spectrum of regular debit card and banking services. Markets like international remittances and asset management are ripe for innovation using Ethereum technology, and TokenCard is well-positioned to reach these new frontiers as a revolutionary financial solution.

TokenCard has already partnered with Digix Global to create gold backed debit cards. With more exciting partnerships to be released in the near future, TokenCard is positioning themselves to be a leader in Ethereum transfers to the fiat world.

While initially providing current token holders with payment utility, the core vision of TokenCard is to build a product that anyone can use. With the accompanying Token app alongside the debit card, regular users will have a familiar platform to access and engage in the Ethereum ecosystem.

“TokenCard makes every token better, letting users spend supported tokens with just a swipe at VISA merchants worldwide,”

Said Peter Vessenes, founder of New Alchemy.

“It has unique benefits for the remittance market, and the TKN token being issued is designed to let all TKN holders benefit from broad market exposure to the token economy. This is a great, great offering and we’re excited to be part of it.”

To download the whitepaper and register for updates, please visit the TokenCard website.

Sikoba, a Decentralized P2P IOU Platform on Blockchain, Launches Presale ahead of Token ICO

Sikoba, a Decentralized P2P IOU Platform on Blockchain, Launches Presale ahead of Token ICO

Bitcoin Press Release: London-based blockchain startup Sikoba has announced its upcoming ICO and token crowdsale, with its token presale starting, April 25, 2017

April 25, 2017, London, UK – Sikoba, a global decentralized money platform based on peer-to-peer IOUs and blockchain technology is taking the first step towards its upcoming ICO by launching a token presale. The presale will give participants a chance to receive a 50% bonus on SKO tokens. These tokens are designed to be used for making transactions on the Sikoba platform. The ICO will run from April 25 to May 15, 2017.

Sikoba is a decentralized money platform based on P2P IOU’s and built on blockchain technology. The service will allow users, who know and trust each other in real life, to mutually offer lines of credit, within the Sikoba system. The blockchain-backed, P2P, IOU-based system will be made possible through smart contracts, giving users the freedom to pay each other with both cryptocurrencies and fiat currency.

Sikoba’s P2P credit relationships are governed by smart contracts with specific conditions, fee structures, and repayment rules. Through the use of ‘credit conversion’, payments between participants who either do not know or do not trust each other are made possible. Fiat currencies or cryptocurrencies can act as a medium of exchange when there are no credit links between participants, or to repay outstanding balances when needed.

Sikoba CEO Aleksander Kampa stated in a recent interview that the platform is designed as a decentralized system, with the goal of eventually becoming independent and self-organizing, through the aid of blockchain technology. The Sikoba Blockchain makes use of a ‘Federated Blockchain’ design.

“This is a permissioned mining model where only authorized nodes add blocks to the blockchain.”

Kampa states his mission for the company,

“Sikoba is the result of my life-long interest in monetary theory. We see a future where the money will once again be diverse, with many different issuers, with a variety of credit relationships, where people will take an active interest in the type of money they wish to use. Our aim is to provide the tools to achieve that vision.”

This unique federation will be self-governing, which means that participants will be removed from or added to the federation based on the voting majority of its members themselves. Kampa stated that Sikoba would likely use Ethereum as a notary, but would perform its main operations on another blockchain, which will be chosen or designed based on the criteria of speed, flexibility and scalability. Differentiating Sikoba P2P IOU platform from other P2P lending platforms, he said,

“Sikoba is not a peer-to-peer lending platform; it is a peer-to-peer IOU platform which allows payments to be made without having money (whether fiat, crypto or any other asset) to begin with.”

Sikoba currently operates as a small team of 3, plus several supporting members. At present Sikoba IOU platform is at the conceptual stage with technical elements still in the works. The SKO token ICO presale funds will be used to expand the Sikoba team, finalize a detailed white paper and develop an MVP by the end of 2017.

There are thousands of cryptocurrencies that act as a transfer or store of value, but in all cases, the acting participants must already possess the currency’s value to make an exchange. The Sikoba ecosystem offers a fully functioning virtual credit, or IOU system, that offers users the ability to attain accredited value, borrowed from another participant, without releasing any funds. Where Bitcoin aims to act as a form of digital money, SKO tokens serve as a kind of digital credit and ultimately have the potential to become a major aspect of the future credit system.

Sikoba ICO Token Pre-Sale

The Sikoba presale tokens are scheduled for release by the end of June 2017. Participants will receive usable SKO tokens after the platform’s launch, expected in Q3, 2018. The pre-allocation phase has begun on 17 March 2017, and the public presale will start on 25 April. Following the presale, Sikoba presale tokens will be issued on the Ethereum blockchain. They will later become exchangeable into SKO tokens, which will be used to pay for transaction fees on the Sikoba network.

About Sikoba

Sikoba Ltd is an active blockchain company incorporated on 18 July 2016 with the company’s registered office located in Greater London. It is led by CEO Aleksander Kampa, whose lifelong interest in monetary theory has led him to build the company to achieve his vision.

E4ROW Contract on a Mission to Aggressively Expand Etherverse

E4ROW Contract on a Mission to Aggressively Expand Etherverse

Bitcoin Press Release: Open source E4ROW contract brings gaming escrow functions to the Ethereum blockchain, paves way for expansion of the Ethereum user base.

April 24, 2017, Tel Aviv, Israel — Live Player Games announces the release of the E4ROW Ethereum escrow contract, and the first app that uses the E4ROW contract: Uncle Finney’s Poker. Uncle Finney’s Poker is one of the first poker apps for Android devices that enables players to bet and win Ether (ETH). E4ROW is launching a Contribution Campaign on May 2, 2017 at 12:00 A.M., GMT.

E4ROW, which stands for “Ether 4 the Rest Of the World”, is an open source contract that performs sophisticated escrow functions. E4ROW’s mission is to aggressively expand the universe of Ether users by bringing Ether-based apps to the global online/mobile gaming markets. The E4ROW contract that is at the core of these apps enables players to bet and win Ether in a secure and transparent manner. The goal of these games is to introduce Ether to millions of new users, thus increasing the overall adoption, viability and value of Ether.

Unlike other crypto-ventures that are marketing to the extremely limited, technologically savvy community of those familiar with cryptocurrencies, E4ROW is attempting to break into the infinitely larger market of online and mobile gamers to create a tidal wave of new Ether users unlike anything previously seen in Ether’s history. Unlike many Ethereum projects that seek to raise crowdfunding based upon incomplete products, E4ROW and Uncle Finney’s Poker are professionally developed software that are complete, tested, and ready for market.

Poker is the most popular card game in the world, with over 100 million players worldwide and more than 250 poker apps appearing in the Google Play store. Virtually all of these Android apps require that players bet fake coins that have no real value outside of the game environment. By contrast, Uncle Finney’s Poker enables Android users to bet and win Ether.

E4ROW is launching a Contribution Campaign, enabling those wishing to support E4ROW’s mission to purchase tokens beginning May 2, 2017 at 12:00 A.M., GMT and ending 3 weeks thereafter. Every escrow transaction handled by the E4ROW contract collects a 2% escrow fee. These fees are proportionally divided among the E4ROW token holders and paid out as perpetual distributions. While the primary goal of E4ROW is to promote Ether and rapidly expand its user base, the developers believe that the limited number of token holders have the potential to earn significant ongoing returns due to the massive global market for poker and the other games in development.

The E4ROW token sale differs from some recent ICOs in that:

  • Not Vaporware: product is complete, operational and ready for market
  • Developer Tokens: Developer tokens are locked for 12 months from end of sale
  • Ongoing Returns: Token holders receive ongoing returns from escrow fees earned by E4ROW.
  • Proof-of-Functionality Threshold: At least 5,000 transactions must be successfully completed within 90 days of sale, else 90% of funds raised will be returned to investors.

About Live Player Games

Live Player Games (LPG) is a Nevis LLC that was founded by David B. Rosen in 2015 with labs in Israel. LPG is comprised of a group of dedicated engineers who are fanatical in their mission to expand the Ethereum user base.

Decred Releases v1.0: The World’s First Cryptocurrency of the People, for the People, and by the People

Decred Releases v1.0: The World’s First Cryptocurrency of the People, for the People, and by the People

Bitcoin Press Release: Decred, a creation of Bitcoin developers, rolls out decentralized governance, claiming a first in blockchain technology.

Decred is a cryptocurrency project and platform built from the ground up to leverage the will of its constituents to drive change. This approach eliminates the conflicts that arise when powerful entities attempt to assert control over a cryptocurrency. Decred adapts to continually meet the needs of the people it serves.

April 25, 2017 marks the highly anticipated release of Decred v1.0. This historic release puts Decred stakeholders in charge of shaping the future of Decred through direct community consensus voting. For the first time in the history of cryptocurrencies, governing control moves away from centralized authorities, such as developers and miners, and is given to the community of stakeholders. Decentralization struggles without decentralized governance; this is especially true when it comes to a rapidly growing global currency.

Most cryptocurrencies distinguish themselves by how they secure the transactions on their network. For example, Bitcoin is famous for using a proof-of-work algorithm that rewards miners for finding solutions to a cryptographic hash puzzle. Other cryptocurrency projects rely on proof-of-stake algorithms that reward users who hold the currency in a “staking” wallet with interest on the balances they carry. Both approaches have strengths and limitations; Decred takes advantage of the best of both worlds with a hybrid proof-of-work and proof-of-stake consensus system. This allows the platform to strike a balance between benefits to both miners and stakeholders, giving rise to a more robust notion of consensus.

The 1.0 release of Decred will include the first community vote on two important issues. After 75% or more of miners and stakeholders have updated to 1.0, Decred stakeholders will be able to vote on one consensus change and one signaling vote. Due to the rapidly growing popularity of Decred, the number of stakeholders buying vote tickets has increased dramatically, leading to large oscillations in the ticket price. This is a good example of an unanticipated condition which needs to be resolved though community consensus. A new ticket price algorithm will aim to ease the large oscillations in ticket price and lead to better ticket price discovery while still maintaining the target ticket pool size. A consensus change of this magnitude is very difficult to achieve in more traditional cryptocurrencies and requires the voluntary acceptance of the code by miners that may or may not have their own agendas. If it passes, the new ticket price algorithm will activate seamlessly for everyone with no further intervention.

The second vote will allow stakeholders to signal support for Lightning Network development. The Lightning Network is a payment layer that makes it economical and fast to process payments, especially small payments, like buying a cup of coffee without having to pay a large transaction fee to process the transaction. If this signaling vote passes, the developers will begin work on integrating Lightning Network on the Decred blockchain. Once development is complete and tested, a future consensus vote can be taken to automatically activate the Lightning Network code.

The recent Decred 2017 roadmap [1] highlights some of the other massive innovations that the team hopes to put up for a vote throughout the year. In addition, a new improvement proposal system will be put in place soon to allow for the community to contribute directly to the agenda for Decred.

The release of Decred 1.0 is a watershed moment in the cryptocurrency movement. Decred finally does what has never been done before, putting the power of change in the hands of the very people that care about it most.

Decred is celebrating version 1.0.0 release with a puzzle challenge. The ‘Autonomy Puzzle’ challenge [2] features an initial prize of 500 decred (DCR) to the first solver, equivalent to approximately USD 7,500 at the time of this release. However, players will be working against the clock, as the prize will be reduced every 24 hours. The puzzle difficulty level has been rated ‘easy to medium’, as Decred is aiming to include participants of all skill levels. For more specific details or to join the puzzle solving conversation, visit the Decred Slack channel #puzzles.

Bitcoin IRA Launches World’s First Ethereum IRA

Bitcoin IRA Launches World’s First Ethereum IRA

Self-directed retirement accounts for second-largest cryptocurrency will be secured exclusively with BitGo multi-signature wallets.

April 19, 2017, Los Angeles, USA – BitcoinIRA.com has announced the launch of Ethereum IRA, a self-directed IRA for the second-most popular cryptocurrency (by market cap) in the world. Ethereum IRA is the second product launched by the company following its highly-successful Bitcoin IRA, which has secured over $10,000,0000 worth of real bitcoin in client custodial accounts since launching in June of 2016.

Similar to its flagship product, Bitcoin IRA, investors can hold real Ethereum in retirement accounts by choosing between traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, 401(k)s, SEP IRAs, and more. To store investor funds, the company has entered an exclusive partnership with BitGo, utilizing its multi-signature wallet to ensure privacy, security, and full compliance with IRS regulations for selfdirected retirement accounts.

“It’s been a pleasure working with the innovative team at Bitcoin IRA, ” said Mike Belshe, CEO of BitGo. “Together, we foresee tremendous opportunity and growth for our clients.”

Bitcoin IRA is the first and only company to offer cryptocurrency-based IRAs for investors, allowing them to hold actual cryptocurrencies in a retirement account. Unlike traditional ETFs and investment plans, investors in Bitcoin IRA and Ethereum IRA continue to own their cryptocurrency even after the end of the IRA tenure, allowing them to freely distribute it.

The unique properties of cryptocurrencies make them uniquely suited for long term investment. In 2017, Ethereum has witnessed an incredible 388% growth from less than $10 per unit to over $44.

“Cryptocurrency as an industry is on a new wave of mainstream adoption. As a business, it made sense to listen to our clients,“ explained Chris Kline, COO of Bitcoin IRA. “They wanted Ethereum, so we delivered.”

About Bitcoin IRA

Bitcoin IRA is the only Bitcoin-based retirement investment portfolio that allows people to invest with actual bitcoins for their IRA or 401(k). The platform works with leading fintech professionals to provide secure, highquality Bitcoin investments.

Bitcoin IRA offers both traditional and Roth IRA options, which offer the same tax incentives as regular IRAs and 401(k)s. The company differentiates itself from other Bitcoin investment products in multiple ways. Unlike Bitcoin ETFs and investment funds, Bitcoin IRA offers an opportunity for individuals to invest in real Bitcoin at a much lower fee. In addition, investors keep total control over their Bitcoin deposits, with no holding fees and the ability to withdraw once the term is over.

Exscudo, Cryptocurrency Financial Services Provider Releases its First Video Message

Exscudo, Cryptocurrency Financial Services Provider Releases its First Video Message

Bitcoin Press Release: The leaders of Exscudo – a cryptocurrency financial service provider, tell the audience more about the project in their new video.

April 10, 2017, Tallinn, Estonia – The cryptocurrency linked financial services platform, Exscudo announces the release of the latest interview video featuring the top managers. In the video, Alex Sitnikov (CTO), Julian Kossinov (CFO), and Andrew Zimine (CEO) shed more light on the project to help the cryptocurrency community and general public understand the platform and its products. Exscudo’s products have a lot of aspects to them, including innovative IT solutions and functions in a new legal field. The new financial ecosystem is being turned into a reality by relentless efforts of specialists from various fields.

Alex Sitnikov, a highly-qualified developer who has vast experience working in IT-development for major traditional stock exchanges and companies, gives some information on how the whole system works. The core of Exscudo is its Stock Exchange, on which EON color coins are traded instead of fiat and cryptocurrencies themselves. The secure feature makes it impossible for hackers or cybercriminals to steal from the exchange as the exchange doesn’t store any money and all funds belonging to the users involved in transactions either remain in wallets or bank accounts until the last moment of closing the order.

Exscudo bridges the gap between traditional institutions and cryptocurrencies in the financial sector. In order to facilitate efficient cooperation between these financial institutions, the company is registered in the EU legislation zone, ensuring full compliance with all applicable financial regulations, anti-money laundering in particular. In the interview, Kossinov states that the top priority of the company is to introduce a seamless exchange procedure not only for cryptocurrencies but also for cryptocurrency-fiat pairs.

The company’s CEO Andrew Zimine believes that cryptocurrencies are meant to change the world. That’s why Exscudo has developed a number of products to solve the problems of accessibility, transparency, and sustainability of the financial market. Zimine, describing Exscudo’s underlying idea says,

“This is your personal access to the financial world, right from any device and for any man on Earth, without intermediaries.”

Exscudo uses an in-house designed distributed network called EON which empowers the whole system. The technology also enables the emission of EON coins that function as the fuel of blockchain and ICO assets. The company will release a total of 240 million EON coins, of which 150.72 million will be available for sale during the ICO scheduled to start on April 25, 2017. The price for 1 EON will be 0.0002 BTC.

VOISE Ethereum Music Sharing and Monetization Platform Announces ICO Crowdsale

VOISE Ethereum Music Sharing and Monetization Platform Announces ICO Crowdsale

Bitcoin Press Release: The Ethereum blockchain-based decentralized music streaming and download platform VIOSE to start crowdsale on May 6, 2017.

April 10, 2017 – VOISE, the blockchain-based platform dedicated to artists and music lovers has announced the launch of its Voisium tokens (VSM) crowdsale, starting May 6, 2017. The crowdsale is part of VOISE platform’s alpha stage roadmap which includes the development and release of a range of client software.

The innovative VOISE platform is built on Ethereum blockchain with the aim of empowering independent artists and musicians while enabling music lovers to discover, stream and download unique content. Artists joining VOISE platform will be able to monetize their content without the involvement of third parties or record labels who charge huge commissions. VOISE adopts an ethical business model where 100% of the revenues on the platform is distributed to the artists.

The development team behind VOISE is working on creating an easy-to-use platform which doesn’t require users to possess special skills or prior knowledge of cryptocurrency and its underlying technology. The platform intends to introduce cryptocurrency and blockchain to the huge music industry in which many are still unaware of its potential. In order to ensure familiarity with existing infrastructure and facilitate the transition between technologies, VOISE will also include support for fiat currencies on the platform.

VOISE for Users

For content consumers, VOISE is just like any other online music store application with a huge collection of tracks categorized according to release dates, genres, and albums. They can browse through the collection and purchase the content of their choice using a range of currencies. However, unlike other app stores, VOISE store offers a much better collection of music created by independent artists.

If a user is a content creator, then they can also upload their creations to the platform and make it available for distribution. The VOISE Radio feature provides unlimited free and paid content for music lovers to listen and enjoy.

Voisium Crowdsale

Voisium (VSM), the native cryptocurrency on VOISE platform is created using Ethereum smart contract technology, and it is available for purchase during the upcoming month-long crowdsale. The VSM tokens can not only be used to purchase content over the platform but also for peer-to-peer transfers and trading against other cryptocurrencies. The platform has set a finite supply of 100 million VSM tokens, making room for appreciation of its value as adoption increases.

Investors in VOISE platform stand to receive 160 VSM for every ETH contributed. However, those participating in the ICO during the first 16-hour window will be eligible for an additional 25% early bird bonus.

The proceeds from Voisium crowdsale will be utilized for further development of the platform to include a variety of features. The inclusion of fiat currency support will be one of the main features to be added in the near future. Soon users will be able to pay for the content on VOISE with USD, EUR and GBP seamlessly, just like they would with iTunes. They can later switch to using VSM for such transactions once they get familiar with the platform. The fiat support will be enabled through partnerships with exchange platforms, which VOISE intends to seek once it builds a significant user base.

The upcoming crowdsale is just the beginning of the creation of an exciting platform capable of changing the way the music industry works. The decentralized, democratized platform provides equal opportunity for artists to publish and monetize the work, irrespective of their experience or the record labels they have/had signed up with. The use of blockchain technology and VSM cryptocurrency also helps the platform reach a global audience with quality content.

VOISE is a blockchain-based content distribution and monetization platform for the music industry. It introduces the multibillion-dollar global music industry to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

MineCoin Announces Rebranding, Second round of the ICO and Bounty Campaign

MineCoin Announces Rebranding, Second round of the ICO and Bounty Campaign

Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain startup MinexSystems, entering the second stage of ICO has launched a new website, rebranded its payments system to MinexCoin.

April 10, 2017, Kyiv, Ukraine – The Kyiv-based blockchain development team behind MinexSystems has announced the rebranding of their payment system from “MineCoin” to “MinexCoin”. The company has also upgraded its website and announced a bounty campaign as the second stage of its cryptocurrency ICO nears.

On the new website — “http://www.minexcoin.com/”, users will be able to learn about the company’s whitepaper, the terms and conditions of the upcoming bounty campaign and enjoy a variety of other features. All personal accounts of existing users will be transferred from the earlier “http://www.minecoin.org/” site to the new one.

The development team behind the company believes that MinexCoin (MNC) better reflects the concepts behind the blockchain technologies they offer. The new website will showcase an improved design and functionality, as it enables users to get a quicker, easier grasp of the future payment system.
MinexCoin’s second ICO stage will be aimed towards determining the starting market price of the coin as it hits exchanges on the day of its release. The cryptocurrency’s index value will be marshaled by ‘MinexBank’ – the algorithm for volatility control.

The second stage of the MinexCoin’s ICO presale will begin on May 15, 2017, and go on until June 13, 2017. The pre-sale will offer investors a chance to purchase some of the total available 150000 MNC at a discounted price. MinexCoin will start trading on the leading cryptocurrency asset exchanges starting June 15, 2017.

MinexSystems successfully completed the first stage of its ICO ahead of schedule following the participation of a blockchain society which acquired the remaining MineCoin . Presented in September 2016, MinexSystems proceeded with the beta testing phase of MinexExchange in less than two months on November 2016.

The first MineCoin ICO stage was held over a three-month period from September to December 2016. It attracted over 400 investors from across the world. It also allowed the MinexSystems team to discuss MineCoin’s implementation and other cryptocurrency solutions within the MinexEcosystem with the early supporters of Minex Project.

During this first stage of the ICO, the MinexSystems team realized the currency’s potential for success with its low-volatility algorithm, as it sparked considerable interest within the blockchain community. MinexSystems believes that this unique quality, along with other attributes, gives MinexCoin the potential to become the leading cryptocurrency soon.

Minex Bounty Campaign

MinexSystems has also announced a bounty campaign that started on March 29, 2017. The campaign, which will go on until June 13, 2017, will allow participants during the public ICO stage to earn a total of 300,000 MNCs by actively involving themselves in the MinexСoin project community. The allocated coins will be given away as marketing and reward bonuses.
