Official press release
London – September 2018 – Mining platform WinMiner is today announcing a strategic investment by Bicameral Ventures, the fund established by Aion Co-founder, Kesem Frank, to WinMiner’s private sale. Kesem will also be joining the WinMiner advisory board, as it expands to drive WinMiner forward and grow on it’s already sizable 190,000+ user base. Additionally, WinMiner is announcing the launch of its BEE token on the Aion network, marking a pivotal step forward for both entities. The functional token will reduce costs borne by miners on the ‘one-click mining’ software.
WinMiner’s decision to launch on the Aion protocol was predicated on the network’s ability to support the software’s large and growing user base in a low and cost-effective manner, while also future proofing the business model via Aion’s ability to interoperate with other networks when necessary. All users on WinMiner who are leveraging the BEE token will be provided with an Aion wallet as well as a simple interface to undertake logic-driven transactions on the Aion blockchain.
As an additional part of the collaboration, the WinMiner platform has also established an AION mining pool, with the AION coin now added to the WinMiner platform. The platform currently supports the networks of different coins, and offers its users the most competitive, robust withdrawal options including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and now AION, amongst other major cryptocurrencies. Users are also able to receive an Amazon or iTunes gift card, as well as cold hard cash if they choose.
“We are delighted to be working with the skilled WinMiner team to truly move the needle in unlocking the full potential of blockchains,” said Matt Spoke, CEO of the Aion Foundation. “Our work since the Aion network has launched is to create a technology that allows for projects to operate without constraints on speed, scale, cost or specific networks. I am excited to have WinMiner marking one of the first projects to prove out this vision and look forward to working together to keep mining decentralized and open.”
