BITMINUTES ANNOUNCES A TOKEN GENERATION EVENT EXTENSION
June 1, 2018, Roswell, GA USA – BitMinutes Inc., a blockchain technology company, and FinTech incubator, announces its Token Generation Event (TGE) has been extended due to increased demand from potential institutional purchasers during its recent SE Asia roadshow and pending European regulatory approval. BitMinutes has exceeded its soft cap of $2 million and therefore eligible to issue tokens immediately.“The extension is driven, in part, by the backlog being experienced by our issuing regulatory body,” added CEO Tom Meredith. “Interested buyers are waiting for approval of the BitMinutes TGE from the Liechtenstein Financial Monetary Authority, which should occur in June. Mr. Meredith continues, “Once approval is obtained, we will immediately issue the first TGE tranche. We chose Liechtenstein since they are one of the few governments globally who have clear legislation in place regarding token issuance.”“We are not making any revision to the $30M hard cap,” notes BitMinutes CFO Paddy Atmuri. “The new interest from large corporate buyers fits within our forecasted total sale, which is important. We must protect the interests of people who have purchased BMTs by issuing tokens at the earliest time. We have exchanges ready to list BitMinutes once tokens are issued to provide liquidity.”The increased attention of regulatory agencies globally is cited by BitMinutes senior executives as changing the landscape for investors in FinTech ventures. “Everyone is more deliberate, and in less of a rush,” notes Meredith. “We are meeting our roadmap projections while waiting on regulatory approval.”BitMinutes has taken the longer view from its inception four years ago.
