After incorporation as a limited liability company in Switzerland and continued progress towards full regulatory compliance within the Swiss jurisdiction, UTRUST aims to further its goal through active participation in upcoming Internet and blockchain events over the coming weeks and months.
The team behind UTRUST will make their way across the globe, promoting awareness of its digital and crypto payments platform in at least nine conferences targeting professionals and corporations involved with digital currencies, blockchain innovations and Internet technology.
Beginning with the Long Finance – Digital Currencies Trade Fair in London, UK, on October 23, 2017, UTRUST will be represented at the following events:
– Long Finance – Digital Currencies Trade Fair October 23, London, UK
– Blockchain Economic Forum 2017 – October 31 to November 1, New York, USA

UTRUST hopes to raise its profile and build momentum leading up to its ICO launch on November 2nd, 2017 (2pm UTC), while firming up business synergy with relevant partners throughout the duration of its project.
Users and supporters are welcome to meet and speak to the team members at any of these events, so if any are attending, do come up for introductions.
The UTRUST ICO will run for a maximum of seven days or until a hard cap of $49 million is reached from the sales of its tokens (priced at a base rate of $0.065 each), or until sold out, whichever occurs first. No further tokens will ever be issued and any unsold tokens will be burnt, permanently reducing the total supply, currently at 1 billion.
This ICO represents the final round of fundraising for the world’s first blockchain payments platform with consumer protections, that is also targeting some 2.5 billion unbanked worldwide.
UTRUST has currently raised $3.5 Million through private early investors and the sold out pre-ICO, with the public ICO scheduled for November 2nd 2017.
UTRUST is the world’s first cryptocurrency payments platform to implement consumer protections on a mass scale. The company is building a global PayPal–like payments platform with extensive cryptocurrency support.
UTRUST’s end goal is to provide all the benefits of fast, secure, convenient, and inexpensive cryptocurrency transactions, in tandem with the world’s first cryptocurrency payment protections, which consumers need to fully embrace blockchain technology en masse.
With 2.5 billion unbanked people in Emerging Markets yet to benefit from financial inclusion, UTRUST is also planning to build the bridge to enable the unbanked worldwide to access the mainstream global financial system.
UTRUST ICO and Tokens
UTRUST’s public ICO will be held on November 2nd. The company will use the collected funds to establish key industry partnerships and to develop the world’s first PayPal-like cryptocurrency payments platform. The ERC20 compatible tokens are created over the Ethereum protocol, and can be used as a means of payment on UTRUST’s payment gateway along with other cryptocurrencies.
UTRUST’s token can be used for making zero fee payments to the thousands of merchants accepting any cryptocurrency via UTRUST, and be traded against other currencies on supported exchange platforms.
UTRUST will allocate a certain portion of the revenues to buyback and destroy the tokens in circulation. Being a deflationary currency by design, the demand for UTRUST tokens will increase with time, which combined with buyback should lead to appreciation in its market value.
