Official Press Release
After collecting a total of 24M NXT tokens in minutes during the 1st round, Jelurida is holding a second crowd funding round (out of five) giving participants another opportunity to purchase IGNIS tokens
LUGANO, SWITZERLAND, September 2017 — Jelurida, the development company behind the Nxt and Ardor blockchain platforms, announces its second round out of five for the IGNIS crowdsale. Over the course of six days, participants will have the chance to purchase IGNIS tokens, currently under the placeholder name JLRDA, in exchange for the NXT token.
The second round schedule is:
Sat, Aug 26th 06:45 – 07:15 UTC
Sun, Aug 27th 18:45 – 19:15 UTC
Tue, Aug 29th 06:45 – 07:15 UTC
Thu, Aug 31st 18:45 – 19:15 UTC
*20 million JLRDA offered in each of the four batches, for a total of 80 million JLRDA.
**The cost of a single JLRDA token in the second round is 0.55 NXT.
JLRDA is a controllable currency on Nxt used as a placeholder for IGNIS balances until the Ardor snapshot, which will take place at least two weeks after the last crowdsale round. As a controllable currency, it cannot be traded among users. However, IGNIS will be tradable after it launches.
The Ignis crowdsale is performed using the Nxt blockchain technology, a leading platform for token crowdfunding campaigns. Nxt is an advanced open source blockchain platform which builds on and improves the basic functionality of pioneering cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. Nxt utilizes the blockchain not only for transfer of value, but also for many core features, including a decentralized asset exchange, marketplace, voting system and special crowdfunding tokens. Ignis will become the first child chain of the Ardor platform, an innovative parent/child chain blockchain design based on Nxt.

“We are very excited to hold the second crowd funding round for the IGNIS token,” said Kristina Kalcheva, Co-Founder and Legal Expert of Jelurida, “Our goal at Jelurida is to create custom child chains on the Ardor platform, as we see the parent/child blockchain structure as the next big step in the industry. Jelurida aims to promote secure, decentralized, and stable blockchains for government, financial, and various other organizations worldwide. The launch of IGNIS is the first step in doing so.”

Jelurida (www.jelurida.com) is the development company behind Nxt and Ardor blockchain platforms. It creates customized commercial versions of these platforms while continuously supporting and maintaining the decentralized public Nxt blockchain. With the upcoming Ardor platform, Jelurida will be creating custom child chains for its clients and partners as well.
Nxt is a blockchain platform developed by Jelurida that has been running in production since late 2013. It hosts many features, such as the ability to create assets that represent shares, vouchers or tokens, and trade them on a decentralized exchange, as well as create polls for decentralized voting, among multiple other features available at the core-level.
Ardor is a blockchain-as-a-service platform created by Jelurida that allows organizations to create their own blockchain, known as a child chain, that is secured by the Ardor parent chain and comes with a wide range of features currently found on Nxt. Scalability is addressed with the innovative pruning feature, which regularly removes transactional data from child chains while still maintaining the same security guarantees.
Ignis is the first child chain of Ardor and will be supported directly by Jelurida. It will contain all of the features available to child chain creators and will ensure public access to the features on Ardor as well as allow access to the Ardor network.
