FortKnoxster has announced that it has sold all tokens in its pre-sale. Consequently, the project will not be undertaking a main sale which is now cancelled.
The Fortknoxster project, which has been lead in part by a group of personal privacy advocates, is looking to create a unified blockchain-based platform that offers a range of encrypted communication services including email, chat and tele-conferencing.
The project team made the announcement to its 3000+ followers on Telegram earlier this afternoon, revealing that it had managed to raise over $10 million dollars in the process without confirming the exact figure which, it was stated, will be confirmed at a later stage.
Investors have been informed that they will receive their tokens by February 18th, the original commencement date of the main sale.
Half of All Investors “Strategic Contributors”
In their Telegram channel, representatives of the Fortknoxster team indicated that over 2000 contributors participated in the pre-sale, snapping up all 80 million tokens on offer.
“We would like to thank the community for its incredible enthusiasm for the project,” a representative stated, adding further that over half of all contributions came from “strategic contributors.”
The project team’s statement also indicated that the project’s FKX token will be made available shortly on the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange. Further exchanges are thought to follow a little bit later.
The Fortknoxster pre-sale success appears to endorse the observation that 2018 looks set to be an even bigger year for ICOs than 2017, with ICOs raising just under $400 million in the second week of January alone – over 10% of the entire figure for 2017, according to some estimates.
