** UPDATE 16/02:
All participants in the ICO that invested with STEEM or by BITSHARES, we need your email address to send you updates and details of transfer of tokens. Please send a memo with your email address to bitgate-ico1. Or send us a random string to email@example.com then verify the string by a memo.
We will start sending out information once we receive emails. So the faster we get them, the faster you get your tokens.
There is still those of you that did not send your BitShares account name. We cannot send you tokens until you do. So if you have not sent it yet, please send us the address ASAP.
In the next days we will start sending out information and reminders to everyone. Again thank you for participation.
** UPDATE 14/02:
First we want to aoplogize for the late update, we launched or FIAT crowd fund the 9th of February, and it has taken up a lot of our time. However we want to thank anyone that participated, the ICO went over all expectations. We asked for 20 BTC, but received 52 in just 15 days!
In the coming days we will send out reminders to everyone that did not send us their BitShares account. The BitGateCoin tokens will be issued with BitShares, so to claim your tokens you will need to create a BitShares account, and then send the account name to us. You can send your account name to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our goal is to issue all the BitGateCoin tokens as soon as possible but we need everyone to submit their emails and bitshares accounts so that we can get started. We will contact everyone by e-mail with details of the amount of BitGateCoins they are entitled to, and details of the transfer. If you do not provide us with an BitShares account, then you will still be able to claim your coins, but we cannot send you the coins until an account name is provided.
In other news BitGate won the “Newcomer of 2016” award, at the Oslo Fintech Fest. The Norwegian government has finally removed VAT on Bitcoin, which means we will finally be legally able to release a pilot in March or sooner. So stay tuned for further updates 🙂
** UPDATE 18/01:
We appreciate all the support from the community, and since the crowdfund is scheduled to continue until 31th of January and the crowdfund has been such a success so far, we want to protect our early investors by increasing the amount of stake given away by 1% for every 10 BTC extra we get after 50 BTC, until a cap of 100 BTC where a total of 10% stake would be given away. This will ensure a valuation capped at a maximum of $1 million until the crowdfund February 9th.
