The KuCoin cryptocurrency exchange completed an investigation into users who used scripts during the IEO project MultiVAC.

Thus, the marketplace identified 67 participants who used special scripts in the course of a tokensale, which allowed them to complete the procedure for participation in IEO quickly, thereby providing them with an “unfair advantage” over other participants.

KuCoin team decided that these users would not receive acquired tokens - they had already returned the spent KCS to them, and the corresponding number of MTV tokens would be given to MultiVAC.

At the same time, KuCoin distributed tokens among those investors who clicked the “Buy Now” button, but did not receive the coins.

Finally, users will receive their tokens after an additional round of MTV sales, which will be held April 9th.
