the beginning of all cryptocurrency and the mother of all blockchains.

holds great significance because it was made at the same time as when the

Korea time.) He said, "We have made the first step towards the 3rd generation

currency following Bitcoin. We will spare no efforts to develop technology to

apply Hycon in the real economy and make it more popular."

HYCON ICO for the domestic Korean market within just eight short hours on

September 25, 2017. The early stage of the ICO resulted in raising slightly

more than the initial target of 3,500 Bitcoin (approx. USD 13.9 million at that

Glosfer successfully held the Infinity Project Unpacked Event, a large-scale

conference, attended by 500 people which showcased the various applications of

the new technology in the real economy.
