“We are excited to bring the over 4.7 million customers GunBroker.com has in its network the ability to buy and sell products with a corporate cryptocurrency and blockchain-enabled infrastructure,” said Bruce Elliott, President of ICOx Innovations. “This is the one of the first use cases that I’m aware of where a compliant cryptocurrency can truly replace the need for other costly and time-consuming payment options which is something of extreme value to GunBroker’s users. With hundreds of millions of dollars transacted annually on GunBroker.com, this may potentially become the most retail transacted cryptocurrency in the US.”
ICOx through it’s subsidiary ICOx, USA Inc. has been contracted by FreedomCoin,LLC, to design and build the FreedomCoin for use by the GunBroker.com Network. The FredomCoin is a stable coin pegged to the U.S. dollar. Users can buy FreedomCoins with U.S. dollars and store them in personal, secure blockchain wallet until needed. Users can quickly convert funds though an easy-to-use app. The platform provides simple, trusted transactions and is designed to meet the demands of the current regulatory environment through KYC (know your client) and AML (anti-money laundering) compliance and money transmitter licensing.

“Anyone who has purchased a firearm knows how painstakingly brutal it can be to deal with traditional credit card companies and other financial institutions,” Steven F. Urvan, CEO and Chief Technology Officer at GunBroker.com. “Thanks to ICOx and BitRail, now we can virtually eliminate that problem and expose a whole new segment of gun and outdoor enthusiasts to the world of digital payments.”
