Dear VINchain community,

For those of you who have not yet made their token swap, the deadline is fast approaching! The MEW (My Ether Wallet) website is being updated and they are removing the ability to swap tokens. There is no specific date set when the website will fully transition to the new version. When this happens, everyone who has not yet swapped their tokens will no longer be able to do so. That is why it's SUPER important for everyone who was not yet made their token swap to do so as soon as possible!
What is a token swap? We distributed tokens to everyone who participated in our ICO. These tokens have to be ‘activated’ (or ‘swapped’) before they can be used, traded, sold, etc.

How do I swap my tokens? Go to https://www.myetherwallet.com/ Scroll down to the column "MEW" and click on the "Vint…

Met at Scottish Enterprise Session with ecosystem players and visited SkyScanner - a leading global travel search s…
