SAN DIEGO, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- empowr, the inventor of virtual currency, announces a coin distribution event unlike any other. Starting on April 15, 2018, empowr will distribute 500 million coins, which is the company’s entire initial supply, through an airdrop on the Ethereum blockchain and a bounty program. Starting on March 22, 2018 empowr founders and democratically elected president will appear in a weekly live stream on YouTube to discuss the historic event and answer the community’s questions.
“Airdropping our entire initial supply of coins is fully aligned with our core beliefs, which is putting the power back into the people’s hands,” said Brian Woosley, the democratically elected president of empowr. “Without accepting a single penny from corporate investors and advertisers, the empowr platform was built by sacrifice and dedication by generations of users. It is with that same spirit that the community has voted to now pay it forward to the crypto community – on a day where they’re spending money rather than earning it – Tax Day.”
The community’s 800,000 active alpha users are already mining cryptocurrency by posting and sharing content; selling and sharing goods and services; or helping others do the same.
Users can spend coins in the platform’s robust marketplace and on advertising, subscription and other services provided by empowr.
The empowr community invites supporters to become holders of the empowr coin:
