Global Messaging Token Launch Conclusion
Number of Token Holders: 1,840
ETH contributed in public sale: 15,779
Reservation from accredited parties: $3,258,800
Countries involved: 80
On Friday of last week, we finalized the sale and closed the Global Messaging Token contract to new participants. We’re extremely excited to announce that in the 31 days between blocks 4,427,945 and 4,617,363, nearly two thousand people became owners of GMT. People participated from all over the world on five continents and in eighty different countries, making GMT a truly global token.
GMT in Dust
Dust is already in market with GMT integrated features, but for security concerns it’s currently operating on the Rinkeby Testnet while we wrap up our quality assurance testing before switching to the mainnet with “real” GMT.
If you hold GMT from the sale and would like a similar amount of tokens to use in Dust, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send Rinkeby tokens to your address so you can use the GMT features.
GMT in Other Apps
Now that the sale has concluded, we’ll resume our conversations with development teams who are seeking to integrate GMT into their applications. We’ll be providing step-by-step support to these teams as they tokenize their applications, and will announce integrations once both parties are ready to make the announcement together.
GMT will also be integrated into Broadcast, which will be released in coming months.
If you are part of a development team interested in integrating GMT and joining the Mercury Protocol app network, shoot us an email at email@example.com.
Developing the Protocol
All of our work on the protocol will be available on our GitHub, starting with the wiki and sale contracts. In the coming weeks, we’ll be pushing preliminary versions of the protocol architecture, providing documentation for teams looking to integrate GMT, and beginning work on easy-to-use frameworks for iOS, Android, and back-end.
