The ECF campaign targets a maximum amount of Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) 2 million (approx. US$480,000). Contributions in Malaysian currency and crypto tokens in their MYR counter-value will be counted jointly.
Crypto tokens BTC and XEM are pledged as a non-monetary considerations-in-kind. pitchIN will consider the market value of the crypto tokens to assign the equivalent number of LuxTag shares to the investors.
BTC and XEM contributions are restricted to angel investors and sophisticated investors, and the minimum amount of contribution by any investor will be MYR6,400 (approx US$1,540 or 0.175 BTC). Investors will be required to declare that they are not retail investors.
