“Gun Friendly” TUSC Cryptocurrency Project Launches


“Gun Friendly” TUSC Cryptocurrency Project Launches

TUSC – The “gun friendly” cryptocurrency project, launches their new blockchain.

Salt Lake City, UT – January 3rd, 2020 – TUSC announced today that over the holidays they successfully launched their main net, opened their chain to public block producers, and resumed trading on the Altilly cryptocurrency exchange.

Rob McNealy, TUSC’s Cofounder, said: “We are excited to finally bring this project home and get launched. Our volunteer team has worked very hard over the past 14 months to make this a reality and I could not be prouder of them. The rollout had some minor UI bugs, which are being corrected, but the core has been functioning flawlessly. I am very excited by how fast our network is; we have three second block times, so confirmation times (authorizations) are just as fast normal credit card processing.  The transition to crypto payments should be virtually seamless for both retailers and customers.”

McNealy said: “As gun owners, and ardent defenders of the right to self-defense, we know that the gun industry is constantly under attack.  We wanted to create a gun-centric crypto to act as a “continuity of business” payment system for gun retailers. Due to their decentralized nature, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies simply can’t be shut down by “activist” banks.”

About TUSC

TUSC – The Universal Settlement Coin, is an open source, pure payments cryptocurrency project built on a delegated proof of stake (DPOS) blockchain. TUSC is a decentralized, non-ICO, community project with on-chain governance.

TUSC was purpose built for retailer adoption using a unique marketing model with an elected and term limited third-party vendor called the Marketing Partner, whose role is to support the onboarding of retailers and promote TUSC through aggressive marketing and sales strategies to vertical markets and industries with recognized problems with existing payment systems.

“Gun Friendly” TUSC Cryptocurrency Begins Token Swap

New Gun Friendly TUSC Cryptocurrency Created its Genesis Block and Initiated its Token Swap

Salt Lake City, UT – September 1st, 2019 – The Universal Settlement Coin (TUSC) announced today that they successfully created the genesis block for their new blockchain and began their 30-day token swap period.

Rob McNealy, TUSC’s CoFounder, said: “We are excited to announce that we have created the TUSC genesis block and have started our swap. Our community of volunteer developers worked nearly a year to get us to this point and I could not be prouder to have been a part of this fine group of passionate and dedicated professionals.”

McNealy continued, “TUSC was purposefully designed from the beginning to solve a problem for American firearms retailers, which have a recognized problem with traditional banking and payment processing. Even though the industry generates more about $50 billion dollars of revenue annually, retailers still struggle with getting banking and merchant accounts. When they can obtain them, they are charged excessive fees and have difficulties with chargebacks. TUSC solves many of these problems, and so far, the industry has been very receptive to our project. Retailers have already committed to accepting TUSC as soon as the payment gateways are completed.”
