Cryptocurrency Gene eyes global parking market – Article on Kathimerini

By VANGELIS MANDRAVELIS

The Greek answer to Bitcoin is Gene, created by the ParkGene company, and is trading on the online market with relative success.

Singapore-based ParkGene is practically run from Athens, where its founding team is located. Since end-December it has been extremely busy, having started its own initial coin offering (ICO), which has done quite well considering it has already sold more than 42 million Genes. The coins sold are valued at $4.2 million (3.44 million euros) and its target is to reach $35 million by February 19. This capital will allow the company to promote Gene around the world, with the aim of selling 1 billion units.

So what can you buy with Genes? To start with, “you will be able to rent parking spaces,” says ParkGene head Ilias Hatzis, the man behind the Greek cryptocurrency. “It’s like Airbnb for your car,” he explains, noting that the company’s aim is to penetrate the international parking market, valued at $100 billion per year.

According to Hatzis, when a car leaves its parking spot, for instance when its driver goes to work, the space is re-leased and can be used by someone visiting the area. There could be an exchange between the two drivers, with ParkGene collecting a small commission – in Genes.

PARKGENE PRE-ICO Sold Out Early – ICO Day #1 Under Way

We are excited to announce that after the PARKGENE PRE-ICO was sold-out early, the PARKGENE ICO is now under-way, amid growing demand for participation in the Early Bird – Day #1 which offers up to 35% bonus. It was announced today that the PARKGENE ICO Day #1  has been extended by 3 days, to January 19, to meet this demand.

 When we launched our Pre-ICO on December 15th, we hoped it would be a success. We couldn’t have predicted what has happened: 20,000,000 GENE tokens sold-out, ahead of time backed by high-net worth individuals, family offices, and investment funds. Today, 9 hours into the ICO Day #1 more than 20 million more tokens had been sold  despite delays attributed to the payment processor.

 “We would like to thank everyone participating in the PARKGENE ICO. We are grateful for the trust you have shown PARKGENE. We’re happy to announce that our Day #1 promo code offering will be extended for 3 additional days until Friday January 19. We want to give everyone the chance to take advantage of our up to 35% Bonus offer, and to reward your patience, trust and support.”, said Ilias Hatzis, CEO of PARKGENE.

 We urge interested participants to lock-in this bonus by joining our Telegram chat at https://t.me/parkgene to get the promo code and then our token sale platform at https://tokensale.genewalletnew.wpengine.com where step-by-step instructions are available.

 In the meantime, we are in the process of finalizing our partnerships with exchanges, while, at the same time, working to ensure that our application will launch when the ICO is completed, so you can use your GENE tokens to pay for parking from day one.

 PARKGENE is a cryptocurrency-based peer-to-peer parking application using blockchain and smart contracts to connect drivers with parking spot owners.
