As planned, I had a phone call with Riggs on monday afternoon. Sorry for the late update, I was working a 14hrs shift yesterday.
First of all, like I said in my previous announcement, Riggs is still very much interested in bringing Printex alive. He went through some financial problems in the last couple months, and had to take a new appartement, get a new phone/internet contract and find work on the side. He took a work contract that is going to last untill mid-Mai, and for that reason, we dont expect to release anything untill then. We should also have all the paperwork by then (they are still held by the lawyer).
He is going to send me the WhitePaper at some point in the next 2 week, so I can finish it, translate it, and probably release it (or some kind of lite version if we think it should have more informations)
He is working on the new explorer as we speak, and should come back to me when its done. We have a temporary explore up if you need it for now at http://printex.boumba.linkpc.net:3001/
We also discussed our options for the 3D printing platform, as some new partnership were brought on the table in the last week.
You might also have notice that Andrew updated our links in <#443719807603572737> and removed the addnode list. Since this list need to be up to date to be usefull, if you need active nodes, please go on https://masternodes.online/currencies/PRTX/ where at the botom of the page you can show a PRTX addnode list under Mno Prtx Waller Info
I know its not much of an update, but if you have any more question, feel free to DM me. You guys know I will be there :D
Hey guys. I was finally able to have a quick talk with Riggs. He was mostly up to date on everything that happened in the last couple weeks (he did receive my sms and update from some members). We didn't had much time to talk, as we both needed to take care of our little family, but at least I can tell you the following:

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 !
