GEMS today announced its partnership with the College Cryptocurrency Network. Over 1 million students attending more than 150 universities, colleges, middle and high schools are represented by chapters of the College Cryptocurrency Network.
Network members will be able to take advantage of crowd sale prices—plus an extra 9 percent bonus—to purchase GEMS’ token, Gemz. The success of the Gemz crowd sale has now reached over $600,000 USD in less than two weeks.
In exchange, the network plans to use GEMS to spread the word about digital currency to potential new members.
According to the network’s executive director, Jeremy Gardner, “The College Cryptocurency Network was founded with the purpose of creating a grassroots movement for blockchain education, innovation and advocacy. We are excited to partner with a company with such a similarly aligned mission of grassroots adoption. Gems will provide an excellent gateway for young people interested in cryptocurrencies to gain access in an intuitive manner by sharing messaging with their friends.”
The crowd-sale for GEMS continues on until January 5th via the Koinify platform.
