We did raise 850k in 2018 and at the time the early token hodlers asked us to solve the scale issue that is prevelant in all of blockchain.
With that we researched, designed, submitted 6 patents and wrote initial code for one of our techs, XBOM and launched enterprise testnet.
We have been doing this for 5 decades now, and unlike other projects we DO NOT state we can achieve anything UNTIL we have mathematically proven and mvp was built. That is now done, we saw opportunity with DeFi pools happen just we achieved proof of capability and are now going to list.
The role of centralized exchanges is changing rapidly and we will list on CEXs as it benefits the project.
