Redemption - IS NOW OFFICIALLY OVER

BTC can only go 8 decimal places after 1 whole. (0.00000001 or 1 sat). It can not go any lower, but the price of a coin, can. Pairings such as DOGE/LTC/USD/etc show the true price of any coin that goes lower than 1 sat.

At the time of redemption, old PAC was 0.000000003 (which is 3/10 of 1 sat if BTC had 9 decimal places). We said from the beginning that new $PAC would be x1000 of the old PAC price, and that is exactly what we did. At the time, 3/10 of 1 sat was $0.00003. x1000 made new $PAC $0.03.

Websites

PACdirect will be live integrated into the website this year. We are partnering with a third party and they will do 100% of the fullfillment.  We want PACdirect to be 100% transparent both legally and in the eyes of the consumer before it is launched.

Mining

Reimbursements

Yes. We are setting up a support desk to handle reimbursements to those who lost coins due to the bug, and for those whose coins were lost while the exchange wallets were broken. Please keep all records of your transactions. Screenshot your transaction ID’s, dates and amounts. When the support desk goes live, we will need those screenshots to verify the transactions, and to be able to refund the right amount of coins.

There are many people out there impersonating us, and trying to scam people out of their PAC/$PAC. We have made many announcements regarding those people, and how to spot them, as well as being very clear and precise about where to get the specific addresses to use for the redemption, and not to trust anyone giving out addresses.

With that said, there were some people that still got scammed by someone impersonating the PAC_HelpDesk with an identical looking name. They used a capital i in Help. So it appeared that the official PAC_HelpDesk was assisting people, only to end up scamming them. Those people affected by the impersonator will be reimbursed via the same method as those affected by the rewind bug. All others who did not take precautions against scams will not be reimbursed.
