BOLDToken Swaps to BOLD - A Cryptonote Mineable Coin
THE BOLD TOKEN
In the midst of the frenzy in which a Bitcoin ERC20 token was created for every colour or metal you could think of, and for most of the top coins in the market-cap. One ERC20 stood out. It was the BOLDToken with its distinct BOLDrewards feature and very limited supply. It was NOT a version of any previous coin on the market - It was original. #BOLD, first of it's name. The #BOLDtokens were airdropped to those who applied in units of 777 and subsequent rewards were paid periodically until it became impossible to airdrop the rewards due to the high cost of gwei on the #Ethereum network. The BOLD team sort to find a solution to get the rewards to the people and decided the best option was to keep the features:
- Limited supply - supply stayed the same
- BOLDrewards changes to cpu mineable coin users can buy or mine to get more BOLD
- Airdrop - 1 token swap 1 coin to maintain the same coin supply

WARNING FROM BOLD_DEV TEAM
Please DO NOT send BOLD tokens which you want to swap for the new BOLD coin, from your exchange address.
This is because all tokens sent from there will be coming from the same address, and we will have no way of proving they come from you.
If your tokens are on an exchange, you will need to withdraw them to an ETH address YOU OWN, then send them on from there to the swap address.
THE BOLD ERC20 token currently trading at Stocks.Exchange and it's a good time to plan your strategy. You can either buy more, then move in one lot to your address then swap. With #BOLD being a mineable coin with scare supply and blockreward of about 3.7 BOLDS per block. It would be safe to guess that this would mostly like be to lowest we see #BOLD as the miners are not likely to dump coins they work so hard to get and for those of us who can no longer mine it its a great time to buy it. You may on the other hand choose to mine.
There are currently several mining pools for BOLD including the official pool - http://pool.boldprivate.network/
At the time of writing the swap is underway and over 400k tokens have now been swapped.
