Hackers stole money from investors of another crypto-currency project. This time it is ICO Experty. A few days before the start of the main part of the campaign, scammers stole $ 150,000. This is reported by Finance Magnates.

Their target was one of the organizers who collected information about potential ICO investors. Hackers get the names of investors, their email and ETH-addresses. Using the received data, they carried out an email spamming with the invitation to take part in the pre-ICO. In the letter they said that investors need to transfer ETH within 12 hours if they want to get more tokens.

The letter also indicated the address for the transfer of funds, and the attackers used several addresses at once.

Many investors believed this letter. Over the past few days, 74 transactions have been sent to hackers for a total of about $ 150,000.

The Experty team responded to the incident and promised to compensate for the loss of the affected users by issuing EXY tokens and a bonus.

We are greatly saddened by the recent email scam that has targeted our community due to the recent data breach. We will be contacting the victims that are in our database in order to distribute the proportional amount of EXY tokens to them, including the bonuses for their tier, from our company allocation. If someone wishes to receive ETH instead, we ask them to please contact us privately about this.

ICONOMI Tokens to Become Securities

ICONOMI is going to become a fully regulated professional provider of virtual financial assets
27 September 2018   4021

ICONOMI announced a change in the corporate governance model and the release of security tokens.

The company's blog notes that ICONOMI is striving to become a fully regulated professional provider of virtual financial assets. Currently, the company expects to receive an appropriate license from European regulators.

To realize the set goal, the company needs to change the ownership structure. Also, in order to unify the corporate structure, the project intends to unite the service operator and the platform.

From November 1, ICONOMI (ICN) token holders will be offered to convert coins to tokenized shares under the eICN ticker, or exchange them for Ethereum (ETH). The latter will be used on a platform to pay commissions to fund managers.

The first stage of the transition period will end on December 31, and the process of tokenization ICONOMI starts in the first quarter of next year. The new joint-stock company (ICONOMI AG) will be registered in Liechtenstein. The cost of one share will be 1 Swiss franc.

Verified platform users can become shareholders of the new company. The exchange of ICN for security-tokens ICONOMI AG will last until December 31 of this year. On the same day, the utility-tokens ICN will cease to exist.

The holders of eICN tokens will have the rights of corporate governance and, accordingly, will be able to choose the members of the board of directors, vote for changes to the charter of the company, and so on.

Additional information about the process of transformation of the company and its tokens will be published before November 1, 2018 on the ICONOMI blog.
