What follows below are HYCON Coin Distribution instructions for running a full node which requires a full sync with the blockchain main network. Please follow the steps carefully.


Before you get started, please make sure you have a pen and paper to document the following at the appropriate steps:

a) Your mnemonic phrase (Step 22 — Step 26, Step 33 — Step 34).

b) Your wallet address.

c) Your password to your encrypted private key such that only you have access to this information (Step 31).

Important Points to Note:

1) Coin distribution begins Thursday 21st, June, 2018 at noon 12 pm Korean Standard Time.

2) After that date, we will begin a once daily batch distribution during office hours, excluding national holidays and weekends, for queued users.

3) To protect our ICO contributors and to add an extra layer of security, you will receive your coins only after confirming you control the recovery phrase (mnemonic).

— — — — —

We cannot recover your funds or refund your account if you visit a phishing site, lose your private key, or use an irrecoverable wallet address. You and only you are responsible for your funds and security.

We cannot:

· access your account or send funds for you.

· recover or change your private key.

· recover or reset your password.

· refund, cancel, or reverse transactions.

· freeze your account.

We hope you appreciate the serious tone of this message as there is no margin for error once you confirm your HYCON wallet address and coin distribution begins. Finally, just to reiterate the point, make sure you have written down your recovery phrase, also known as a mnemonic phrase, and store it in a safe place. Do not share this phrase with anyone.

Thank you,
