As the year comes to a close, we want to thank you, our EARTH Token community, for your support in setting us up for an extremely exciting and successful 2018.
2017 was a great year for impactChoice as a company in many ways.
· In August of 2016 we decided to migrate one of our core propriety systems to a distributed ledger (Blockchain) and launched the new system at the World Travel Market (WTM) Africa event in April 2017.
· By late June, initial designs and high-level architecture for the Natural Asset Exchange and EARTH Token were complete, and plans were well underway for the EARTH Token ICO. September saw the launch of earth-token.com, with the necessary marketing materials, media channels and delivery teams were in place to support the ICO, which commenced November 17th, 2017.
· It was also a year of partnerships and strategic acquisitions, particularly on the supply side of the Natural Asset Exchange, designed to ensure we have a rich supply line of assets to be offered when we launch the NAE. These include partnerships with Kariba REDD+ and The Black Rhino Reserve Wildlife Trust, and also the acquisition of DMMB Group.
It has been a whirlwind year, but also one with some setbacks and sorrow, with the loss of Leonard Harley, who was a major driving force behind our efforts. EARTH Token and the NAE were to be the culmination of his life’s work. He is sorely missed and his vision for a better world continues to live on in our hearts.
Len’s vision and guidance has set us up for a bumper year in 2018 with EARTH Token and the launch of the NAE at WTM in April. Stay tuned for some exciting new coming your way in the new year.
Thank you once again for your continued support — may you and your loved ones have a happy and prosperous 2018!
Product Management & Marketing Director, impactChoice
