EDINBURGH – 10-01-2018 (PRDistribution.com) — The Nimiq team has published a “Transparency Report”, providing insight into the use of funds that were raised earlier in 2017, as well as details on the token control and distribution.
The effort emphasizes a sense of openness and confidence among the team. Community manager Ricardo Barquero says: “We think it is vital to show that funds are mindfully diversified and used responsibly. We hope that taking the step to share details of project spending and assets is reassuring for the growing Nimiq community, and might even inspire other actors in the blockchain space to follow suit. Nimiq is a healthy, evolving ecosystem, and we wanted to show that this was true financially, as well as technically.”
Highlights of the report include size and categories of spending, as well as distribution and vesting of the underlying ‘NIM’ currency. As of July 2018, the project controlled a total of $12.32m in (non-NIM) assets, which included diversification of funds into fiat, Bitcoin, Ether and real estate. Total funds spent to date were roughly $4.6m. The full report also also comments on the burn rate. Notably, the equivalent USD value of ETH raised at the end of the fund raiser ($12.8m) is only around $0.5m more than current assets.
The transparency report provides rare insight into the workings of a blockchain start-up, granting unusual views into the financial position of a project in the space. With the failure rate of 2017 Token related fundraising events quoted in some media outlets as high as 90%, it is a reassuring sign that not at last from a financial standpoint some projects have been managed and controlled more responsibly than others.
