Comments by Management
David Vincent, CEO of the Company stated: "The appointment of Guy Dancosse as a Director to the Board, brings significant depth of experience and legal skills, of international currency systems and of Global Mint operations, having been the legal counsel for the Royal Canadian Mint for a long period of time. His background complements the new direction of the Company, relating to its planned Ethereum Crypto-Token Offering (CTO) development work, including developing the regulatory and legal documentation requirements, to undertake a CTO. Furthermore, Guy's experience on the Board of Directors of the Royal Canadian Mint should assist with developing the physical delivery logistics with any CTO of Gold and Silver crypto-tokens, with smart contracts, on the Ethereum blockchain during 2018."
Crypto-Token Offering (CTO) Considerations
The Company is not undertaking any current CTO right now. If, as and when the Company wishes to undertake a CTO, it will disclose such details at that time.
While the Company is not conducting a CTO now it may decide to do so in the future. If the Company decides to do so, it will determine the terms of such offering and, such CTO may be deemed to be a security for the purposes of the Securities Act (British Columbia) and therefore require either a prospectus or an exemption from the prospectus requirement to issue the Ethereum Crypto-Tokens and affect trades in the Ethereum Crypto-Tokens. The Company may utilize the accredited investors exemption, the offering memorandum exemption or such other exemptions from the prospectus requirement that are detailed in National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus Exemptions. However, in certain instances the issuance of a Ethereum Crypto-Token may be determined to be a derivative if the underlying asset of the crypto-token is a commodity, which is not an investment contract. Until the Company finalizes any terms of any CTO it will be unable to definitively determine if the Crypto-Token is a security or a derivative. Crypto-Tokens may be tradeable on the Ethereum Platform or other token platforms. If such Crypto-Token is a security then the Company will need to file a prospectus to permit the secondary market trading of the Crypto-Token or alternatively apply for an exemption from the prospectus requirement for secondary market trading, and there are no assurances that such exemptions will be granted.
