Equity financing has been unsuccessful

Blockshipping has on at least four occasions been very close to achieving equity financing from potential investors, but in each case when they move into the due diligence process, they pull out due to concern with the ICO that we ran in 2018. Some investors and investment banks operating in the conservative shipping industry have a policy that they simply won’t invest in companies that have done an ICO and issued their own cryptocurrency.

Other pushbacks from investors include concern that CCC token holders would receive a % of the top line revenues in Blockshipping while shareholders in Blockshipping would…

CCC Token updates

Dear Community,

In our previous update, we told you that we are planning to run the ICO no longer than until the end of December 2018, and we can now announce that we have made a decision.

The public Blockshipping ICO will close at the 31.12.2018. We have started the ICO in May 2018 and have received a total amount of USD2.5M in funding, and we believe that it is time to shift our focus and move on. Since then the market has seen some severe downfalls which at some point had some influence on our progress.

We thought that…

Dear community,

However, we still very much believe in our project, and I can ensure you that we are fighting harder and more determined than ever to achieve our goals and develop the Global Shared Container Platform as planned and promised.

So far, we have raised around USD 2.5 million, and even though this is far from our original hard cap, this amount of money has made it…
