Last Chance to Buy EQB before Mainnet
We are approaching the Equibit mainnet and are currently inviting eligible participants into the sale of the last 400,000 EQB from the pre-mine. Buying EQB will help support our company as we pivot to growing the Equibit community with various marketing strategies and integrating financial institutions with this new infrastructure.
If we reach our hard cap any EQB remaining with Equibit Group and not used for bounty or other marketing campaigns will be locked up for one year. It’s an exciting time and a great opportunity for us all!
EQB Sale Details at a Glance:
We started this project in late 2015 with five founders and an angel investor. Since then we’ve grown to be a highly regarded blockchain development company, adding more people all the time. Equibit has been built, tested, and enhanced three times, making it the most robust of cryptocurrency projects. Click here to read an op-ed in Canada's Globe and Mail where our CEO explains our pragmatic approach to blockchain development.
Some of you will know about IBM’s partnership with Hyperledger, a permissioned system that excludes the crypto community from participating. But they also have a partnership and marketing agreement with us! This gives us access to co-marketing funds, co-branding opportunities (below is a logo you'll see on our website and other promotional materials), access to IBM’s extensive client base and much more! Recently IBM took our CEO a five-city, North American speaking tour to talk about Equibit and permissionless systems.
Forget what you think you know about decentralized exchanges (“DEX”), we’ve actually done it! Our wallet leverages the full functionality of the Equibit blockchain and can execute cross-chain atomic swaps between Equibit, Bitcoin, and any other cryptocurrency with similar scripting features. You can watch the whole thing here, where we demonstrate a cryptosecurity being registered on Equibit and then swapped directly for Bitcoin between two parties using nothing but our wallet. We see Equibit becoming the hub for all off-exchange trades of cryptocurrencies and cryptosecurites.
We’re serious about governance and that means having a real board of directors with skin in the game rather than a roster of disengaged (and sometimes unknowing) advisers. Our board is made up of highly qualified and experienced individuals with direct oversight of the development company and real fiduciary accountability. With such broad understanding and expertise in the financial and capital markets at our fingertips we’re in a much better position to scale effectively.
We’ve recently seen the emergence of the “security token” mania and take it as a sign that we’re on the right track. There’s no greater flattery than emulation. But the financial industry needs strong security and dedicated infrastructure that won’t choke on the immense transactional load it will demand. Equibit is the only public, permissionless, mineable, scalable, secure blockchain capable of providing the user experience needed by issuers and investors that can truly disintermediate the industry.
Where many projects are solutions in search of a problem, our professional management team began with a business case. We come from deep financial and technological backgrounds. We’re the only company led by a former Chief Financial Officer of a financial institution working to deliver a solution like Equibit. The problem Equibit solves was our problem for a long time. We know how to communicate the value proposition to our industry peers.
With many companies facing serious impediments to their operations from various governments, we chose to set up in Switzerland – the world’s #1 destination for financial services and cryptocurrency companies. Not only that, we’re one of the few companies there to have clearance from the Swiss financial regulator, giving us comfort that the company can operate as planned and opening doors to partnerships with financial institutions, which we’re already in the process of securing.
We want to hear from you and have numerous places throughout this site to make that easy. If none of those spots apply to you - this one does.
There is an email address for members of the media and one for EQB Sale participants if neither of those applies, there is one for general inquiries.
