Czech Virtual Currency – Another Distribution step

The Czech virtual currency, Czech Crown Coin (officially named by the authors “CZC”) which started the distribution of the pre-mined CZC in August 2014, is distributing a next set of 100,000 CZC to the first 1,000 EU based individuals who have registered and obtained the so called “myID” via the official website of CZC.

Czech virtual currency update

The new Czech virtual currency, Czech Crown Coin (officially named by the authors “CZC”) was for the first time offered to the public this week (Tuesday, 19th August) at noon, as part of a press conference held by its founders. The interest of the public in purchasing CZC was bigger than expected. The pre-mined amount released in the initial edition of 100,000 CZC was sold out within nine and half hours, whereby a third of this limited amount was sold already within the first hour! It is planned that within the next days, an additional set of 100,000 CZC will be offered to the public. After these ten days (on Friday, 29 August) an exchange platform will be opened on the official website of CZC.
