Raleigh, North Carolina, May 14, 2018 — Adosia, LLC. (Adosia), a production stage blockchain-based Internet of Things (IoT) startup, announced today that its offering of Simple Agreements for Future Tokens (SAFTs) and the underlying Adosia Token will officially commence on June 1, 2018 after completion of the Final Consent Order halting an earlier Initial Coin Offering (ICO) with the North Carolina Secretary of State (NCSOS).
Adosia is an IoT hardware, software, data and cryptocurrency mining platform initiative secured in blockchain for adaptive architecture enabling rapid product development, which is expected to launch a beta program in Q3 2018. Adosia is building a variety of internet-connected hardware solutions, while also providing a robust and cutting-edge Wi-Fi remote management platform to enable brand new hobby, integrator and consumer markets.
NCSOS Division of Securities officials contacted Adosia before the original ICO commenced, but not before one foreign purchaser participated, and found that the investment programs are unregistered securities being offered by entities and persons that are not registered to sell securities in North Carolina. Adosia took this inquiry by the Secretary seriously and worked with Enforcement Division attorney Amy Folk and investigator Rich Godfrey to formulate a mutually agreed upon resolution in a Final Consent Order whereby Adosia and Solomon agreed to not conduct an unregistered offering without properly complying with a North Carolina or federal law exemption from registration.
From this order and with the guidance of NCSOS officials, a possible solution to the ICO conundrum under existing North Carolina law is currently being developed by the Adosia team led by Kyle Solomon. The Adosia team is excited to be working on the first state regulatory approved crowdfunding mechanism to raise capital under North Carolina Law possibly using both fiat currency (US Dollars) and cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum. Under the NC Investment Exemption, RiseNC.com hopes to provide a platform for companies, that are registered to do business in North Carolina, with the ability to raise up to $2 million dollars in a Seed Initial Token Offering (SITO) from North Carolina residents.
While working on RiseNC, Adosia will conduct a SAFT private sale for accredited investors and continue with advancing its hardware technology. “This is not a perfect solution but this is the best solution we have been able to develop using the proper regulatory framework provided by the SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) and State of North Carolina. This an important step towards enabling American entrepreneurs the equal footing we need to compete on a global scale.” stated Solomon.
RiseNC.com hopes to launch its beta platform in Summer 2018 for fiat currencies. And, with the help and support of other departments, regulators, and elected officials in North Carolina, the platform aims to provide the ability to conduct SITOs by the end of the summer. “If we as North Carolinians can move the regulatory needle forward by allowing this new form of capital raising to commence without the fear of enforcement actions by the State or SEC then we can open the gateway to a new and exciting form of venture funding for entrepreneurs and startups.” said Michael Vivenizo, counsel for Adosia. “Adosia, RiseNC, Kyle and his team can play a pivotal role in creating the next thriving technological ecosystem that will make entrepreneurs excited to work in North Carolina.”
Adosia hardware is currently available at www.adosia.io.
