The VINchain blockchain is live and we are ready to go!

Image
Dear VINchain community,
We are glad to announce that our blockchain is officially live again now! As you all know due to the changes in US legislation we had to refund all the US ICO contributors.
In order to do that we stopped the swap and suspended our blockchain for some time to process the refund. It took us a little longer than expected as we have been waiting for people to fill out the necessary documents.
Right now we have refunded the majority of US contributors. Those who haven’t confirmed the refund address need to do so inside their VINchain.io account, and they will get the refund at the end of the week. The refunds will continue to be processed once each week on Friday.
If you went through the token swap previously, then you need to reactivate your wallet so you can freely use your tokens. Please follow these instructions to reactivate your wallet: (https://medium.com/@vinchain/instructions-to-activate-the-vinwallet-5167d0c5106b  ). This guide is intended for those who h…

Dear VINchain community, Time flies and our weekly update is ready once again. We have been working diligently on the reload of the blockchain, as we need it to be complete for the refund of US citizens. We apologize for the delay, due to the need to update servers there is an inherent time constraint and we are aiming for it to be completed the beginning of next week. The swap will be available as soon as the blockchain is reloaded.

We are working on producing our own OBD device - that thing that plugs into your car to help you capture your driving / vehicle data. Last week our team visited Teltonika (https://teltonika.lt/ ) a huge manufacturer (top 5 in the industry) of OBD devices. This is a great company with over 20 years of experience in this industry.
We analyzed their manufacturing process, and witnessed OBD devices being produced right in front of us - going from raw materials to completed devices.
We visited the location where the raw materials for the devices are stored. All of the materials are counted, tracked, and inputted into the system, they are sent to the production floor.

Also we have attended the factory itself - where the OBD devices are assembled. We made sure that during this processes the device is of high quality.
