- ＜ABOUT The ICO postponement of Satori Books.＞
- Today Satori Books have a very important announcement to make:
Our ICO(starting from 6/18)will be postponed to be compliant with the latest Japan ICO rules.
Satori Books has selected ICO as a means to realize this project, but now the environment in Japan
in ICO is in a fluent situation, and it is unclear in many parts when going forward in the future.
Through many discussion with many people, it is inevitable that everyone who entries will have indeterminate elements,
so we reached this conclusion this time.
We will postpone the ICO, but our goal is to realize Satori Books to the last.
First of all, not depending on the financing method of ICO,
with the aim of realizing the publishing system without “mediated exploitation” in a decentralized industry,
we will develop automatic translation by AI, will develop content platform based on block chain technology,
and planning to start up and work on creating Satori Books beta version.
ICO is a very attractive method that has not been done so far, and also we have the cooperation of many people,
we are really sorry but we will postpone the ICO at the current timing.
We will report the current situation of Satori Books through HP/SNS from time to time.
Thank you very much for all your support and interest.
