Background Information


Past Reports

Financial Situation

We are essentially out of funds and this represents the end of the project.

PAN token

I have ended the PAN token sale at memo.cash as the sale was ultimately not successful. If we do another token, we may exchange outstanding PAN tokens.

Some PAN tokens may still appear for sale but that is only because I have canceled them several times and the offers refuse to disappear. Please disregard any such offers from me.

Thank you

I am very proud of what my organization has achieved over the last 2 years working as part of the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem.

  • We faced down FUD and jealous hate, including multiple “Two-Minutes Hate” threads on r/btc.
  • I stepped up to play a conciliatory role during the Bitcoin ABC controversy.
  • We progressed our ground adoption and marketing efforts despite the insane lockdowns and other restrictions of 2020.
  • We continued with Bitcoin Cash during and after the 2020 network split, defending the network in the process and rendering some small assistance to the BCHN team.
  • We proved yet again that we are the real deal. We produced world-class results no one has yet come close to, including in the area of transparency and community communication.

Thanks everyone for your support and attention. We would not have been able to do this without you.

Thanks especially to those who funded us and made all of this possible.
