Luxcore says it has introduced revolutionary new ecosystem features based on their blockchain, making it “one of the leading blockchain service providers in the industry“.
The latest version, Mercury v5.2.1, includes SegWit, the PHI2 PoW/PoS algorithm, hybrid masternodes and smart contracts.
In addition, they announced a reorganization of their business to make the most out of the expertise already present within the organization, introducing key roles for the staff.
The first is the replacement of the CEO Brian Oliver with John McAfee.
McAfee has been working on the project since April as a consultant and was chosen for his leadership and extensive experience in the development and growth of technology companies.
The new CFO will be Frederick Angers, with 20 years of accounting experience, while FragileMk will be in charge of communication and social strategy, drawing on more than 10 years of creative marketing, operations and planning for a Fortune 500 company.
The Luxcore roadmap is on track and will be completed by the end of 2018.
