The Ignite Crowdsale Roundup

The Ignite crowdsale concluding on February 28 2018 put an end to 8 months of fund-raising on behalf of the Ignite project. A lot can happen in 8 months, especially in “the world of crypto” and, during this time, the Ignite team proved always ready and willing to adapt and evolve the project’s tokenomics in line with the ever-changing industry backdrop against which its fund-raising efforts were focused.

Accordingly, a project that started with a token cap of 100,000,000 IGNT and a USD-pegged token price of $1 to 1 IGNT, ended up with an initial token cap of just 8,000,000 IGNT, a secondary offering reserve of 52,000,000+ IGNT, an ETH-pegged token price of 0.00667 ETH per IGNT, and an exchangeable twin in the IGNX token, pegged 100:1 to IGNT.

Ignite commenced its presale 3 days’ late on 18 December 2017, due to CryptoKitties having run rampant through the Ethereum network and slowed everything down to a snail’s pace (true story!)! The presale ran until 25 December 2017. Ignite commenced its main crowdsale on 15 January 2018, running continuously to 28 February 2018.
