"UPGRADE ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the extreme interest in the MTO we have to do an urgent maintenance work this night between 1:00 to 2:30 UTC to upgrade the IOPS on the RDS databases. We are over 100,000 investors right now at a speed 3x what we expected."
"Phase 91, already! ???????? It's moving in insane-speed now. We can just congratulate and high-five all MTO holders. The supply and demand is clearly not in balance and we have chosen to increase the price per MTO from phase 93 and forward."
This project has real world fundamentals and established infrastructure, expertise and clientele right from the start.
Good luck competing with that, sh*tcoins and ivory tower tokens! ????????
???? BREAKING NEWS: HIPS and The Payment House, a leading payment processor for taxi companies, just announced their partnership, which will enable payment with Merchant Tokens in over 20,000 taxis in Scandinavia and 10,000 taxis in the UK! ????
(That is more than twice the number of cabs in entire New York City or more than 30 times the average number of cabs in the next bigger city in your area! Cannot even pay 30,000 taxis with Bitcoin. And there are more announcements to come!)

The Merchant Token Opportunity In A Nutshell?
This brings crypto to POS terminals and consumer protection to crypto via DeFi smart contracts.
The missing bridge from crypto to the real world, the last puzzle piece to mainstream trust and electronic payment adoption:
"A solution that introduces consumer protection concepts from the traditional card payment industry to any blockchain with support for smart contracts like Ethereum, Cardano (ADA) or Solana. Created for Payment Service Providers (PSP) and EFTPOS devices with full support for backward compatible financial protocols like ISO8583 enabling crypto payments in standard terminal protocols."
This is not financial advice, do your own research if you like the project, but check out their very interesting white paper:
This is HUGE in my opinion. This to me looks like an undiscovered hidden gem. The missing piece for crypto payments to reach massive market penetration and mainstream consumer acceptance in a global mega market (POS? I mean, EVERYWHERE!) with the potential to go parabolic and explode as soon as this hits the exchanges (July 2021).
The ICO started on 1 April and is scheduled for 90 days until end of June, but already sold out 50 of 100 phases after only 10 days. ????
The ICO will progress for a total of 100 phases. For each phase the token price will increase by $0.01 until it reaches
$1.20 at the end of the ICO $1.11 in phase 92. After that, the token price will increase by $0.09 for each of the last remaining 9 phases until it reaches $1.93 in phase 100 at the end of the ICO, which is scheduled to be at the end of June.
Very important additional aspect for my investment decision to BUY:
Limited to 100 million tokens – still at only $1.29 in one of the last ICO phases right NOW !
Compare this to total supplies of 1 billion DOT, 2 billion Filecoin, 45 billion ADA, 100 billion Ripple and check their current prices.
Some analysts on social media already see it at $15 and even $100 in the future.
"The Hips Payment Group is already partnered with over 200,000 merchants and as the widespread adaptation of digital payment systems continues to infiltrate every aspect of our consumerist society, I think it's fair to say that the possibilities for the Hips Merchant Protocol and the MTO governance token within the payment services industry and fintech sectors are seemingly endless, and the use case is rock-solid."
And the Best Part?
Mainstream investors and even crypto influencers haven't even really heard of it yet!
