The New York blockchain-company, Blockstack, has filed a claim with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to hold a tokensale in accordance with the “A +” exemption. The company plans to attract funding in the amount of $ 50 million, reports CoinDesk.

If approved, the sale of 295 million Blockstack Stack (STX) security tokens at a price of $ 0.30 per unit will be handled by a unit of the company Blockstack Token LLC.

The company wants to use the raised funds to accelerate the development of the decentralized computing stack and the application ecosystem.

We’ve been working with securities lawyers to create a legal framework that can enable blockchain protocols to comply with SEC regulations. This can potentially set a precedent for others in the industry, not just for public offerings, but also as a path to launch new public blockchains and establish a path to bootstrapping decentralized ecosystems.

The A+ exemption was adopted by the SEC in 2012 and allows companies to attract up to $ 50 million of funding from American investors.

In December 2017, the Winklevoss brothers and other large investors invested $ 50 million in the Blockstack during the tokensale.

Mithril claims that they studied various blockchain platforms and was convinced of the “speed, security, and user friendliness have become crucial to the success of our ecosystem” of Binance Chain, which was the reason for his decision.

MITH deposit / withdrawal on will not be available for the first 12 hours after migration. Nevertheless, trading will continue. After completing the necessary procedures, Binance users will be able to withdraw from the exchange tokens of a new format to the addresses of compatible purses and Binance DEX. ERC20-MITH, located in the personal wallets of users or on other exchanges, will not be affected.

Mithril is developing a decentralized social network with the possibility of receiving awards for creating content. MITH rate on the background of this news has grown by more than 30%. Currently, it is the 144th largest cryptocurrency asset.
