As most of you know, in 2013, Edward Snowden became one of the most famous men alive — this happened after he leaked many classified secrets about illegal government spying, as a former NSA contractor. His actions expressed explicit concerns about the lack of general online privacy. Later on, in early 2014, we began researching the possibility of building a secure communication platform that could solve the problems we just mentioned — of course, the Snowden controversial leaks triggered our actions. The same year, we managed to start the initial development, on some fundamental levels. By the end of 2015, we succeeded in having the platform tested and adding further features. Then, the next year, we made a series of major improvements regarding the platform’s scalability and also start having the first live users (for both the online and the web version). And finally, this year, we choose to rewrite the whole code-base and crypto-structure, to prepare for Blockchain integration and de-centralized storage; the FortKnoxster demo platform is launched — so users can test our end-to-end encrypted inbox, chat, decentralized storage, calling, video conferencing, voice — all available through a single web and mobile platform.
ATTN: FortKnoxster’s token generation event starting 8/11 (pre-sale) and public 24/11. Visit the official website or read through the whitepaper to learn more about the project, or jump into early-bird pre-sale at Bitcoin Suisse.
And now, after four years since we started developing FortKnoxster to provide Encryption as a service, we are proud to be able to tell you more about FortKnoxster’s token sale — one of the few ICOs backed by a working product.
A few days later, on November 24th, the token generation event will be launched.
Let’s have a quick look at 8 essential quick facts regarding the token sale:
- 1 USD = 5.25 FKX, where the ETH / FKX rate is locked 4–6 hours before the crowd sale starts and will be published on our website
- 135 Million FKX TOKENS ISSUED
- 80.325 Million available for the token sale (59.5% out of the total amount of tokens)
- FKX tokens will be sold for ETH.
- $15 Million MAX CROWDSALE CAP
- FKX is an Ethereum ERC 20 token
- FKX will be sent immediately to the wallet from which the ETH arrived
- In case we do not sell all tokens, the remaining will be burned.
The token sale will end latest December 22nd, 2017.
We are delighted to see the progress that our platform has made during the last period and we are glad to know that the number of people who are accessing the FortKnoxster DEMO is continuously increasing. Also, we’re honestly excited by the interest that the community is showing concerning the use of our platform. Without a doubt, we would not be able to carry on the tasks we have set, without the vital input from all our teams, partners and users.
Consequently, to maintain the improvement of our service and to be able to accurately conduct and manage all our current and future operations, obtaining the financial resources according to the precise timetable we have set is extremely important. As you probably already know, a major part of the budget will be directed to sales and marketing, so that our service may reach a worldwide audience during the token generation event (TGE).
