MinexSystems has successfully completed the first stage of its ICO, thanks to a commercial bank that acquired rest of the minecoin cryptocurrency. The bank’s participation has allowed MinexSystems to complete the ICO ahead of schedule.
During the talks between MinexSystems and commercial banks’ representatives, which were conducted within the last 2 months (according to the terms of the agreement, MS can not disclose the bank’s name before the transaction completion), MinexSystems have reached an accord regarding cooperation between MinexBank and one of the leading European banks. To acquire a share in the nominal capital of Minex Bank, the partner bank shall acquire the remaining coins. Therefore, all the unsold coins, that is 1095275.5 MNC are frozen, and currently minecoins can not be bought.
Partner bank buys 1095275.5 MNC, which weren’t sold during the subscription for 1705.44 BTC .
According to the results of voting, which was held on October 12 and was aimed at determining the bank’s model, a lot of participants has given their votes for a hybrid model, making the following arguments:
According to the agreement, the partner bank shall close the deal before March 15, 2017, that is why MinexSystems is rescheduling the second stage of ICO for the early spring.
For those investors, who have already purchased coins and want to realize them, the developers have activated the function of coin transfer, opening in such a way, the OTC market, since there are no coins for sale.
For safety reasons, developers recommend everybody who have already bought minecoins, to change password and activate two-factor authorization in their personal accounts, in the ‘Settings’ tab.
