Dear Asch Community, Thank you for your continued support and trust. Compared to all those non-existent projects, Asch was founded by a group of practical human beings. We are poised to take-off.
On September 4, 2017, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) and several associated Chinese government agencies announced that initial coin offerings (token offerings) are prohibited. The announcement, has led to a cryptocurrency market panic, would give a much-needed fillip to the blockchain development in China. Apart from boosting the sound development of blockchain in China, it would bring Asch to the fore after the chaos and protects the individual investors’ immediate interests. Asch team will actively cooperate in the supervision in compliance with existing laws and related policies. In addition, we will continually focus on and update the newest information, especially focus on how other similar blockchain team dealt with ICO liquidation.

Asch is a hard-working team, we will actively cooperate in the supervision. Meanwhile, we would like to gather more aspiring entrepreneurs who wanted to convert their passions into a business or their fresh ideas into innovations on Asch platform with the purpose of boosting the development of blockchain services in China.
