The LEXIT crowdsale is now over and we would like to extend a big thank you to all those who showed their support for LEXIT! It has been a great few months and we are delighted to call time on what has been a hectic period of development for the first global IP and company assets marketplace run on blockchain.
So what have we been up to? Well, smart contracts are such a key component of the LEXIT platform that our CTO Wajid Khilji has been working hard to implement them in the best way possible. A solution that marries speed and security is vital for an M&A market that is currently dominated by paper contracts.
You can now pre-list your assets
We’ve developed a site for companies to begin pre listing assets ahead of the full launch which will be coming soon. Fill out the form now in order to get your listing on to the marketplace as soon as it goes live!
We have developed a token sale solution born from our very own crowdsale platform. This means that entrepreneurs who use LexICO can launch an ICO in a matter of weeks, rather than months. Development time is crucial and it is not always necessary for startups to be diverting resources into a token sale platform which they will only use once!
It can also be used for private sales, bounty and airdrop management, making it the ideal fix-all tool for startups in the early stages of an ICO.
LexICO seeks to make launching an ICO easier and cheaper, firmly rooted in the belief that removing such boundaries is the best way to foster growth across the blockchain ecosystem.
A strategic partnership has also been launched with Hypercube , the probably most successful ICO-Video production company, in order to offer LexICO users a wide range of marketing services for their ICOs. Users are eligible for a 10% discount off Hypercube services, while Hypercube clients get 10% off LexICO packages.

The LEXIT Platform
It’s vital that the website is as comfortable as possible for buyers, sellers and advisors alike. We understand that this means that the platform needs to be intuitive and easy to use. Functional, but also aesthetically pleasing: this is the marketplace that people will want. A wide range of customizable features exist on LEXIT, but this has been done without adding too many layers of complexity to the process of listing and buying assets.
The LEXIT Team Grows
We’ve been hiring to an already great team and are pleased to say that we have just about doubled in size. Some incredibly talented developers and product designers have joined the LEXIT ranks to great effect and they will help carry us forward to releasing the best platform that we possibly can.
LEXIT Goes Global
Following our attendance at the Global Blockchain Conference in Dubai our remit looks to expand to the Asian market. This included welcoming two new team members from Shanghai, China who will be focused on establishing LEXIT in the east and bringing together what aims to be a truly international platform.
Security on LEXIT
We developed our very own KYC process to streamline things and save both of us some time. Adjustments had to be made - in the United States, legal actions were initiated that indicated distributing tokens through bounty programs could be liable as securities - but a change of policy has not prevented an exciting level of participation.
However, all participants in our previous Airdrop and Bounty Programs must complete our KYC/AML/CFT requirements by September 30, 2018.
LEXIT is committed to offering a secure platform that complies with regulation. There have been no data breaches and we’ve successfully prevented all Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. This is a credit to our team who work hard to this end.
LEXIT Platform users
Over 15000 accounts were created during the crowdsale. Our bounty campaign proved to be quite popular, as we had 6,282 participants. The current number of Autumn Airdrop stands at 4,805 and is growing every day.
Autumn Airdrop Launches: Get 80 LXT!
We wanted to grow our token community even further so decided to open our Autumn Airdrop to ensure a wider token distribution. It’s open now and you can enter up until October 15!
To participate, please visit our Airdrop page and follow the instructions there. To become eligible for token distribution you will need to complete the KYC process and the date of distribution will be announced soon after the KYC deadline.
Partnerships To Help Us Keep Moving Forward
The LEXIT ideal is engrained in the concept of helping big ideas from people across the world to flourish by working together. Several companies have chosen to share in our vision and we are delighted to welcome them all as partners!
