Today, on the 20th of September, GoldMint is launching its ICO. The GoldMint ICO will mark the birth of a new means of exchange for physical gold, with transactions leveraged over the blockchain based platform. This platform will utilize the private and individual gold trading market and potentially the management of larger physical stocks such as those in central banks. It will also provide an electronic payment solution backed by physical gold and a system for gold-backed peer-to-peer lending.
GoldMint is celebrating the beginning of its ICO by attending 3 major events on the same day the crowdsale kicks off. One of these events is BlockchainLive in London – Europe’s leading Blockchain conference bringing together over 75+ global experts in various fields.
Another one is Moscow’s ICO Event which this time mainly focuses on how legislation will impact the cryptocurrency space.
Today GoldMint is also present at the Global Blockchain Summit in Hong Kong gathering iconic speakers from various industries to discuss the real-world applications of blockchain technology, as well as its potential benefits, risks, and regulatory concerns.
To spread the word about GoldMint in the USA – GoldMint’s advisor and business developer Evgeniy Volfman has recently completed the official Northern American road trip representing the project in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Miami.
Simultaneously, GoldMint is opting to expand its campaign globally, with the Middle East & Singapore regions being the current primary focus. Anna Palmina, head of IR & Business Development, is currently negotiating with gold stockpiles in Singapore & Hong Kong to solidify a mutually profitable collaboration with these gold reserves.
While meetings with gold stockpiles owners are still being held, an agreement between GoldMint and Eurasia Mining, a platinum, and gold production company, was reached last week! It covered the establishment of a method for the application of blockchain based technology to the development of resource industry projects.
GoldMint expanded its advisory board signaling great news for the company’s direction moving forward. Two prominent persons have joined GoldMint as advisors. Among them is Leonid Boguslavsky – the Chairman and CEO of RU-Net investment company. In 2011, Russian Forbes listed Leonid as one of the most important players in Russia’s booming Internet scene. Mark Grats who worked for Apple (iTunes) and Yahoo in Silicon Valley has joined the board as well. As an Angel investor, he has facilitated a number of successful investments in the Hi-Tech and Gaming industries.
To join GoldMint and to participate in its ICO, users may send BTC (Bitcoin) or ETH (Ethereum) and receive MNTP (MNT pre-launch) tokens in return at a price of $7 (USD) per token.
The value of the token will grow, as MNT are of limited supply and are used as stake in the PoS (Proof-of-Stake) consensus algorithm. Those who invest in the first days of the ICO will benefit from a special early bird bonus system, awarding up to an additional 20% bonus of tokens.
