Update — 96 Hours into the Simple Token ICO

  • After the first 96 hours of the Simple Token sale we have now achieved 80% of our target of 100 million ST sold.
  • The ST token sale runs until 1 December or until the absolute hard cap of 240M ST is sold.
  • 13 purchasers participated in a private pre-sale before the public sale, purchasing an average of 900 ETH worth of ST. These purchasers received 27% bonuses on average and their ST is locked into 12 month vesting schedules.
  • 1706 purchasers have participated in the public sale.
  • The average purchaser in the public sale has bought 4.48 ETH worth of ST.
  • Purchasers come from 94 countries.

Yesterday Ian Balina did an AMA with me to get an update on the Simple Token project and the progress of the token sale.
