Paris - April 2018 - Daneel, the first intelligent cryptocurrency assistant using IBM Watson, concluded its ICO with 8.6 million DAN tokens sold. Starting with a successful pre-sale that resulted in reaching the soft cap in just two hours, Daneel has raised about 2616 ETH from 1581 contributors across 164 countries - despite capricious market conditions in the last months.
Following the successful ICO, the team announced HitBTC as the first exchange to list the DAN token. HitBTC is one of the most advanced cryptocurrency exchanges, and one of the top exchanges in terms of volume, and therefore a great start for Daneel’s community. HitBTC offers more than 480 cryptocurrencies, with the 24 hour volume estimated to reach $240 million. “This first important step will allow us to start the discussion with other big exchanges,” says Harold Kinet, Daneel’s Head of Communications.
As the next step, Daneel is looking to bolster their team. “The team will evolve to focus on product development and strategy. We are now launching our recruitment campaign to enhance our team with new talent,” explains Joseph Bedminster, CEO at Daneel. Vidal Chriqui, a top French blockchain researcher is joining the project as a senior advisor. This will open new potential partnerships, as Vidal Chriqui is involved in many Blockchain projects. He specialized in BigData and distributed systems which led him to work on Bitcoin and Ethereum, showing a strong expertise in micropayment channels. “We are already in discussion with other major advisors in the crypto sphere and fintech,” says Harold Kinet. "We’re also actively working on securing more partnerships, like the one with Amon, the cryptocurrency debit card”.
Daneel’s ICO was considered an exemplary ICO by many members, who noted great transparency since the beginning of the sale. Each decision taken by the team has been explained in detail. For instance, a decision about allocating unsold tokens - the team decided to burn 60% and redistribute 40% proportionally to all contributors - was carefully explained across the website, Medium articles, emails, Telegram group and social media. Once the users understood that the token redistribution would facilitate scalability of the project and maintaining initial investments value, the community expressed their full support.
Daneel's community is growing fast with more than 30k subscribers to their forthcoming service, scheduled for Q4 this year. Beta testers can receive early access through the website: https://daneel.io/
