The choice of the mechanism for raising funds through the ICO is justified by the need to use the inter-exchange token Exchange Union Coin [XUC] as the main element of the implementation of the business model.
Total XUC supply: 3,000,000,000. XUC price: 1 BTC= 4,600 XUC, 1ETH = 380 XUC (these prices are indicative and will be fixed at crowdsale). The ICO will start on the 7th of August 2017, and will close on the 31st of August 2017. If the subscription amount exceeds 400,000,000 XUC before the closing date, it will be extended for a further 24 hours with a ceiling of 600,000,000 XUC. If the subscription amount goes below 100,000,000 XUC, the company will regard the crowdsale as a failure and return corresponding BTC/ETH to all subscribers of this particular ICO.
