Tokens were issued to compensate for the missing fiat funds of the former BTC-e cryptoexchange, which was closed due to accusations by the US authorities of money laundering and participation in unlawful activities.

The program will consist of two stages. At the first stage, tokens will be redeemed in parts. Information on the percentage of purchased tokens will be published on November 2. At the moment of press, there are no information about it in official WEX channels.

Our company is working under the laws of Singapore which considers digital currencies and tokens as a "digital asset". It means that we have the right to issue tokens, a “digital asset” with conditions and price specified at the start and available for trading.

Following the trial court of the city of Thessaloniki, the Greek Areopagus decided to extradite Alexander Vinnik, suspected of laundering $ 4 billion through the BTC-e cryptocurrency exchange, to France. Thus, the appeal of Russian lawyers was rejected, reports TASS referring to the chairman of the court Angelique Aliferopoul.

After the announcement of the verdict, Alexander Vinnik declared that he would continue the hunger strike against the arbitrary rule of the Greek authorities, which began in mid-November.

I have been starving for 24 days. Yesterday I was weighed; according to the documents, I lost 8 kg. But they did not immediately begin to weigh me, only on the third day. So I lost 9 kg. If I'll be extradited to Moscow, I will stop starving.
