MONTREAL, April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATW Tech (“AtmanCo” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:ATW) is proud to announce, as part of its ongoing global partnership with the Einsteinium Foundation (EMC2) (refer to press release dated January 12, 2018) that the first phase of its implementation has been completed for the integration of blockchain technology into its various platforms, which include voting, gaming and fundraising. ATW Tech's subsidiary, Voxtel, has begun accepting the cryptocurrency as a payment solution on its unified payment platform.

Alongside the other channels of distribution and development targeted such as the further integration on Voxtel’s payment gateway to buy, exchange or transfer Einsteinium coins, and peer-to-peer network gaming, being a leader in mobile political voting and mobile fundraising in Canada, Voxtel will also focus on the political arena and is planning to launch crypto contributions in the Fall of 2018.

“We’ve been looking at crypto for quite some time,” says Michel Guay, CEO of ATW Tech, adding that: “Many organizations are getting in on the cryptocurrency craze for example to fund political campaigns and we want to be the first facilitator.”

“Using Einsteinium for fundraising efforts has the distinct advantage of creating transparency in an area where it is needed most.” says Ben Kurland, Chief Strategist of the Einsteinium Foundation. “Furthermore, it can be far more efficient than other payment solutions due to its speed, security and ability to be transferred internationally.”

Einsteinium is a blockchain currency designed to democratize research funding. The Einsteinium Foundation which maintains the currency and furthers its utility and adoption, is due to launch a crowdfunding platform to promote scientific research in June. Other recent developments include a social mobile wallet and the first annual Einsteinium Awards set to take place in September.
