Good day family
I would just like to post a little partnership that we have had for some time and was never really advertised here. Thanks to @409488178756452372> Printex is listed on the masternode hosting website https://mnhosting.nl/ that can be paid with SCN coins from https://www.securecloudnet.org/ for only 50 SCN (about 1.27$ USD) per month.
For those of you that are not that tech savy or don't want to pay full price to rent a VPS, and still would like to run masternodes, Maik's Masternode Hosting is the perfect hosting service. You can still hold Printex coins in your own wallet, and only require to follow their instruction and give them your txhash, they will take care of everything else, from installation to update of your node. If you have any question or would like more information, you can contact @409488178756452372> from SCN team!
6⃣ New admin
I would like to thank Riggs that appointed me as admin of the discord to help him better. I will be doing mostly the same job as before (support team), but will also be more active on the announcement and management side. This will allow Riggs and Andrew to take care of the business side, as they are mostly busy in the background and need someone to keep the community informed.
7⃣ Other stuff:
We are also working on new exchange listing, marketing, modification to the platform and a couple other things we have been putting on the ice.
Again, thank you all for your support@everyone !
2⃣ News about the whitepaper:@everyone We are terribly sorry that we ended up so late on the release, but this was for the better. Because of the last information we received, we needed to adjust a few things in the way Printex (the coin) is presented and will be used on the platform. Please understand that this whitepaper is of a good size, and we don’t want to keep changing it, so we are trying to make it fit the business as much as we can before we release it, so that we don’t have to change it again any time soon. The final changes shouldn’t take more than a few hours, and so we are planning on releasing the French version of it on Friday the 25th by the end of the day (UTC-05). English version to come later…
3⃣ News about the Stake “attack”
If you follow crypto news, you have probably heard about a “Fake Stake” attacks on chain-based Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrencies. Since we are a PIVX fork, this is affecting our wallet. For now there hasn’t been any problem on our chain, and this is not an attack that can be put easily. We are looking for a fix, and are following PIVX (and its fork) to implement one. Some of the coins that already implemented a solution, ended up creating other problem(s). We are monitoring the situation and will apply a fix, when a proper one is found and accepted.
4⃣ News about the vendor shop beta
We decided to only go with a few interested people to test the platform, those people has been contacted and will be able to give the platform a try. We might add a few more interested people as we see fit. We are still planning to release the vendor shop a month after the textile platform launch. This is still “work in progress” and ETA can change according to the feedback or adjustment we need to make.
5⃣ New channel: #the-printing
We created a new channel called #the-printing in which we are going to show you the equipment we use to print most of our merch. A brief description of each machine is going to be posted.
Good day family!
1⃣ News about the platform release:
This week, we finally received a good news from our lawyer. He told us that we received the ACRP authorization to run our business, including using Printex on the platform. There is still little details that needs to be worked out, but basically we are going to be able to go forward with the information we have. Like we announced recently, we are going to launch the platform using payment in fiat, and also using Printex. This will be implemented a little differently than what we originally planned, but the basics are the same. Here is what we expect will happen next:
On Thursday the 31st we have a final appointment with the lawyer, to give him the last of the paperwork required for him to ask for our Kbis (business matriculation number). Once he has the paperwork, it should take him about 72hrs (business days) to be able to give us our number.
On February the 6th, we should have received our Kbis number and be working on the finals details of the platform and the last legal adjustment.
We should be able to launch the textile platform with full functionalities (paying and shipping) on Saturday the 9th.
If anything change in the meantime, we are going to keep you guys informed.
Important message :
CB paused trading for most PIVX coins, the reason "Possible vulnerabilities" means they are able to send huge amounts of wrong data to wallet/nodes. This can cause a failure, to remain safe we accepted their request. We are not alone, the list of coins searching for a patch is long.
Printex corresponding with KYD & StakeShare team to get an patch as fast possible. This is not a exploite where they are able to create a huge amount of coins they only mess up the network.
We will keep you guys informed, thanks for you confidence.
@everyone Riggs resolved the SMTP issue on the server. The 20 members selected to be part of the Vendor Shop beta should receive their login details today, or tomorrow at the latest. We hope you guys are going to enjoy the work we have done, and we are awaiting your feedback on <#518486580940505088> (if you don't have access to that channel, please let us know)
I got a lot of feedback about accepting fiat on the platform, I think I should have made things a little clearer.
I know the previous announcement might have been a little bit vague, but bare with us as we continue to make the final legal adjustment.
We still appreciate your feedback on any announcement we make, so a big thanks to everybody that came to me to talk about any of their suggestions!
Now, as for the whitepaper, we possibly lost our money on the traduction for this one... We tried to get back to our guy at least 2 or 3 times, and was not able to reach him. So the plan is to not wait anymore after him, and just go with a traduction (and review) using the help of people we know and thrust.
The last point is about the access of the beta shop platform. As soon as Riggs get back on his feet, he will be fixing the SMTP problem that caused none of the login email to be sent. Hoppefully this is going to be fix during the week.
As usual, if you have any question, don't hesitate!
Hello Printex Family
I was able talk with Riggs again today. He told me that he felt sick on friday, and that's why he wasn't available for the week end. So lets all wish him to get back on his feet and working as soon as possible :D
As an update for our last meeting with the lawyer, during that meeting, it was brought to the table that we should accept fiat on the platform. As we dont want to damage the coin, we needed to come up with solution(s) as to not affect the price, or make it to easy for potential buyers to bypass using Printex. So we finnaly came up with 2 solutions that, we think, are going to be a good trade off between making Printex our main currency, but also offer to buy product in fiat for users that wants it. We are going to show those 2 solutions to the lawyer in a hope to come out with 1 solution that is going to be implemented on the platform for the lowest (legal) price possible.
Please understand, and we want to make this very clear, that it is not in our goal to accept only fiat at any point of the project. We always wanted to create a platform based on crypto-currency for the flexibility it offers from the very begining, and this is still our goal. But everyone, i'm sure, will also understand, that it is much easier to have some kind of fiat income, and also help us not to sell Printex back on the market to pay for our fees. We will let you know about the details of this new option as soon as we have a good idea on how we want to implement it on the platform, as this will only takes a few hours of work.

Hello Printex Family
Last Thursday, we had an appointment with our lawyer to review the progress of the legal aspects of Printex. Together we prepare the general conditions of use and sale of Printex as well as all other legal procedures for the company.
As some community members have suggested, and to allow Printex to come into being as soon as possible, for the general public, we will first focus on a single country. France. Then we will gradually add countries to it. Our lawyer approves and it will also be easier for these steps.
We have contacted the AMF (Autorité des marchés financiers), the contact person we had to refer us to and do not see any unfavourable reason for our activity. However, he referred us to a service of the Banque de France "ACRP" (L'Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution (ACPR) an institution of the Banque de France.)
To date, we have sent 2 files:
One to ACRP. We hope to have a positive response from ACRP in early January.
This will give us the green light to start the activity and the company with the general public in France.
One to the CNIL. To ensure that the platform complies with all applicable laws to protect future consumers.
Our lawyer's office is taking a holiday today (21 to 02 January) and the next appointment is for Tuesday 8 January.
There is a good chance that the company will be operational in January. I'll keep you informed of the next news.
So to recap :
Thank you for your support !

More info during this week, Thx you all for your support
First of all, we are sorry that we missed the initial date we had told you for the release of the new whitepaper. This is related to the fact that, since we had to postpone the release of the shop front from the platform, we needed to reorganize most of the content of the WP. Everything related to the shop front, will be release and explained in the part 2 of the WP coming with the launch of the said shop front in a couple weeks. We initially thought that this process would only take a couple hours, but it left huge holes in the document, and since we want to release a professional product, we had to work on it some more. We are still looking to release it during this week. Thanks again to all of you for your patience and support
Now, because the shop part of the platform needs a different set of rule, we won’t be able to release it at the same time as the textile platform like we initially anticipated. This will most likely take another month after the official launch (so about 2 months from now), and that is only for the shop-lite and intermediate shop. If everything goes according to plan (and nothing ever does) we anticipate being able to launch the first Global shop a few week after the release of the shop platform.
Because of that, we decided to launch the shop front in a Beta phase, just like we did for the textile platform initially. This initial Beta will be for 20 users only, and will require registration. This will give u guys that plan on opening a shop, a good opportunity to test out the functionalities and give us some initial feedback about the shop front side. We are planning on doing a public beta just after the closed one. More information on this will come in the next few days.
This is all good news, as we are finally getting closer to a real, functioning, legal business. But on the other hand, it will take more time than we thought, and we are sorry for that.
Finally, like we stated in our last announcement, we are still aiming to release the first part of our new White-Paper in the next few days. This first part will cover the textile industry side of our company. We are then going to release two more parts covering the introduction of new functionalities on the platform as they become available .
As usual, thank you@everyone for your patience and continued interest 👍
Good day Printex family!
As some of you might already know, we have had a meeting this morning with the lawyer that’s helping our project to become a legal entity. We are really happy that we decided to work with a lawyer, since there is a lot of regulation we would have had missed that could have jeopardized the project in the future without legal support. Here are some of the point we wanted to share with you after that meeting:
In France, selling items on a shop, and being a reseller, require two totally different general rules of agreement from the users. What that means for us is that, when releasing the platform, we are going to need different agreement from the user depending if they want to just buy merchandise, or if they want to open a shop.
Accepting different method of payment (ie accepting different crypto), also require another set of agreement from the user/owner of a shop.
The legal paperwork won’t be ready for the planned release date of November the 28th, we will have to postpone again the official release date.
So we are now confronted with new problems. We will need more time than we expected to get the rules written for the textile platform, the shop front AND the payment in other crypto currency (global shop).
We talked about it, and because you guys have already been waiting for a long time, we decided to release the textile platform in a pre-release form on November the 28th as planned. This pre-release form will enable you to create an account and create and save your own designs, but not to order or pay for your merchandise yet. The official release of the company, along with the textile platform, with all the functionalities, SHOULD be just before Christmas
