Internet of Coins Update #24 - Listening to the winds of change

Dear cryptocurrency enthusiast,

We thank you for your interest in our project, and all who participated in our crowdfund. You are receiving this e-mail because you have either signed up for the Internet of Coins e-mail updates, participated in the crowdfund or have previously been in touch with one of our team members. From August 1st this newsletter will be sent out once every two weeks, to keep our supporters updated about our development efforts.

Trading support in preparation

A third party has shown interest to launch the hybrid tokens used in Internet of Coins on an exchange. Their technicians have started research into supporting the different chains that intercommunicate. We cannot give any guarantees on their timing, but donators who will want to start trading will have one more choice on where they can exchange, next to the decentralized exchanges. We will also unveil the logo for the interconnected hybrid token when the exchange has their implementations ready. In the meantime we are laying foundations for the weavechain implementation and starting cooperation with other programmers, for example in the UI/UX area to take the wallet further.

Hardware node

Next to token support, we are also preparing bare metal options for our supporters. Development of a hardware node is underway that will enable everyone to support the Internet of Coins infrastructure. We are very excited about this development, and will communicate further information once the nodes are production ready.

'How we roll'

We noticed some questions about the token release cycle in our email inbox. Some supporters asked how and when they would receive their tokens. For most people, the tokens will be released in the first quarter of 2018, when our integrated and user-friendly wallet has been developed. The last requests for early holders are being handled this week and next week.

The release of the tokens

There have been questions regarding where the HYBRID tokens are 'visible' and how donators can know where their tokens are stored. We build on earlier achievements, and hence the infrastructure to carry our tokens will be developed using the (crypto)currency that our supporters donate. At the present moment, this means your registration information is your ticket for our Fundraiser. Make sure to keep a copy of your PIN, the TXID of your donation, screenshots of transactions and confirmation, or the confirmation email. If you cannot find these, you have until September 1st to provide proof of your donation. When the network infrastructure is functional, each donator will be able to create their own account on the newly developed system. This account will receive the amount of HYBRID tokens reserved according to the USD value of the donation at the time of participating. In the course of development, the network will be connected to different coins and token systems, as well as those included in the fundraiser.
