funds collected allow the launch of two synthetic zirconium production
lines with a total capacity of 800 tons per month. The primary goal of
the campaign, which took place from 11 May to 9 June, was the collection
of at least $3.5 million for the construction of the first production
line, with a capacity of 400 tons per month. High demand from investors

huge success for the first ICO of its kind on the market. Using
blockchain technology, we secured financing quickly and efficiently. Our
team thanks our investors and partners’, commented Andrey Nikonorov, co-founder of ZrCoin.

to the creation of fundamentally new solutions that make easier the
life for businesses and private users’, added Sasha Ivanov, founder of the Waves Platform.

online community, whose engagement is exceptionally high in such
crowdfunding campaigns, we and the ZrCoin have established trust with
our audience to create the first ever manufacturing application project
in the cryptocurrency market. We encountered initial skepticism from
some parts of the community, but investors’ interest was obvious — which

project team invested around $1 million of its own funds in the
development of the technology for the production of synthetic zirconium
from wastes from the metallurgical industry. The first plant will be
located in Magnitogorsk in the Chelyabinsk Region. Completion of
construction and the launch of the first production line are scheduled

with 1000 investors and over 400 BTC coming into the crowd sale in the
last 24 hours.
to the terms of the ICO, 50% of the unsold coins will be distributed
among all crowdsale participants proportionally. The final unsold coins
multiplicator is 7, which means the amount of purchased coins will be
multiplied by this number. If a person purchased 1000 EON coins, he will
receive 7000 coins after the network goes live. The multiplier also
applies to bonus EONs earned for early investors, but not bounties as
these are awarded a separate allocation. The remaining 50% of the unsold
EONs will go to a non-profit Exscudo fund to be used as technical coins
for further testing and development of the EON network.
The Exscudo team reports that the ICO was a success. “We
have raised enough to fund the development of our products”, — says
Andrew Zimine, CEO. “The ICO is over now, and we have entered a new
stage in Exscudo. Now we are going to prove that our products and
services are worth the trust our ICO participants have invested in us”.
team is now preparing for the launch of the EON network. In June, the
company plans to publish detailed instructions on setting up peer nodes.
EON uses the DePoS mining algorithm, and to set up a node, a user needs
to deposit 25.000 coins.
EON test network is to be launched in a couple of weeks now that the
ICO is over. Exscudo plans to run the net tests in collaboration with
the community. After the tests are successfully finished and all issues
fixed, the EON main net will go live. The launch of Channels, the mobile
wallet and secure messenger, is planned for the same time.
participants will receive the purchased EON coins right after the main
network goes live. This will also enable exchanges to list EON coins.
The launch of the Exscudo exchange is planned for Q3 2017.
Exscudo team would like to extend a warm thank you to all of its ICO
participants as we move closer to the next steps and milestones for the
EON blockchain and Exscudo products that will be launched soon.
