Following our update named An Important Coin Announcement — Part One from this past Monday, we wanted to follow up with additional details to the merger between Coin and HODLVERSE.
Coin has negotiated a merger with HODLVERSE. We are also investing our corporate treasury to acquire tokens in a private sale from the HODLVERSE. These tokens will be distributed and airdropped to $COIN token holders based upon a snapshot on a future date. With our experience, Coin will aid in the future fundraising efforts for the company (including traditional venture capital and / or direct offering), drive business development, focus on developing cross-chain interoperability across the HODLVERSE platform, and native wallet integration. The existing team members at HODLVERSE will continue to drive the development of the DeFi functions, gaming, and NFT integration of the platform. The merger enables the teams to collectively execute quicker integrations and expand more rapidly in this very fast-moving market.
As part of the merger and private sale allocation, Coin secured 10% of the total token supply of MONEY from HODLVERSE from its corporate treasury. This equates to 100,000,000 out of the 1,000,000,000 (1 billion) supply. Coincidentally, the token supply for $COIN is also 100 million which translates to a 1:1 airdrop. Current COIN V4 tokens holders are eligible for the MONEY token airdrop. $COIN V1 — V3 are still able to upgrade their tokens to the latest version in order to take advantage of the airdrop. Details on how to upgrade previous versions of $COIN to the latest can be found here.
At a future date, the team will take a snapshot of $COIN V4 token holders. The wallet addresses that are holding $COIN V4 at the time of the snapshot will be recorded and used to receive the airdrop. Transactions and new $COIN token holders beyond the snapshot date will NOT be eligible for the MONEY token airdrop. We will make multiple announcements to ensure everyone is clear on when the snapshot will occur.
The date and timing for the airdrop are yet to be determined at this time.
What Happens With Coin and $COIN?
Coin as a company (including its team and IP) will be integrated into HODLVERSE. The HODLVERSE branding will be leveraged exclusively moving forward. The $MONEY token does not replace the $COIN token. The $COIN token will still exist and offers an opportunity for the Coin community and all $COIN token holders to grow value and liquidity in both tokens.

We believe by combining forces with a talented team such as those at the HODLVERSE will help us get there.
