GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, Sept. 17, 2018 /CNW/ -- MovieCoin Services Inc., an affiliate of MovieCoin Holdings Inc., has announced the start of the presale for its Moviecoin Utility Tokens effective September 17. MovieCoin is a next-generation financial technology company that is leveraging blockchain technology and digital assets to revolutionize the film and entertainment industry.
With a hard cap of 10,000 BTC, the presale follows the conclusion of MovieCoin's private sale, which successfully reached the company's soft cap of 2,000 BTC. Two billion Moviecoin Utility Tokens will be distributed at 0.11 USD per token from the Cayman Islands. The Moviecoin Utility Tokens are not available for sale in the United States or Canada or to U.S. Persons or Canadian residents.
MovieCoin will accept Ethereum, Bitcoin and BKX tokens for the presale, with the minimum commitment set at 5 BTC or equivalent. Initial buyers of Moviecoin Utility Tokens will also receive up to 25 percent in bonuses. The presale will end on October 30 at 00:00 PST. MovieCoin is planning a separate offering of MovieCoin Smart Fund (“MSF”) Security Tokens to accredited investors pursuant to Regulation D of the United States Securities Act and National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions.
BKX tokens are issued by BANKEX, a top-20 global financial technology company that is developing MovieCoin's Proof-of-Asset Protocol. As a variation of the ERC-20 utility tokens attached to Ethereum's blockchain, BKX tokens will be accepted for the presale with an added five percent bonus rate.
Participants in the presale must complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) process, a standard verification process that prevents capital, or token equivalents, from being used for illicit activity such as money laundering. To participate, please register at www.movie.io.
Following the conclusion of the presale, MovieCoin plans to initiate the sale of tokens on November 1, 2018 with no minimum contribution required. The public token sale will end on November 25, 2018.
