3 min readMar 29, 2019


After Bittrex controversial cancellation of RAID token’s Initial Exchange Offering (IEO), it did not stop the Singaporean based cryptocurrency exchange, KuCoin, to launch its first Spotlight project called MultiVAC. IEO has become a trending concept to native tokens of major crypto exchanges like KuCoin’s KCS that reportedly has gained 15.17 percent over the past 24 hours after hosting their first project on Spotlight or their IEO launchpad.

The MultiVAC project is the first of its kind that is hosted on the KuCoin Spotlight platform and is set to happen on April 3rd. Multivac is a fully sharded blockchain that has already accumulated a USD 15 million war chest from round A investments from a group of prominent blockchain project investors including Arrington XRP.

The sale will be for 600,000,000 MTV tokens, worth ~USD 3.6 million, with each token initially selling at USD 0.006. The IEO sale will be for 6% of total supply of MTV tokens and tokens will be allotted on a first come first serve basis and will only be accessible with KCS.
