Voucher registration has started for Stacks tokens

Blockstack has officially started the process of “testing the waters” for voucher holders. We started contacting the 8000+ voucher holders on Friday, May 17th, 2019. You can verify that the emails from ‘’ are legitimate by checking the Stacks token website and this verification tweet.

We’re asking voucher holders to complete registration and indicate how many Stacks tokens they anticipate purchasing so we can get a better estimate of how many Stacks tokens should be allocated to voucher holders at the $0.12 offering price.

These vouchers were distributed to our core community and developers during the 2017 token offering, and new potential purchasers cannot obtain these vouchers.

Although the planned offering of Stacks tokens is not yet qualified by the SEC, voucher holders are now registering and verifying their vouchers. Voucher holders are asked to complete their registration by 11:59pm EDT on May 25th. If you do not complete the registration process by the deadline, you may be unable to redeem your voucher. Detailed instructions are in the respective emails.

Completion of verification and registration will not complete the purchase of Stacks tokens. No person or entity is obligated to purchase the amount of Stacks tokens indicated during their registration or any Stacks tokens at all. Upon SEC qualification we will notify the registered voucher holders, at which time they will need to complete additional steps if they wish to complete their purchase of Stacks tokens.

If you are interested in purchasing Stacks tokens, you should review the publicly filed offering statement and the preliminary offering circular that is part of that offering statement at

If you believe you are a voucher holder and haven’t received an email with these instructions in the past few days, please search your inbox (including your spam folder) for ‘[email protected]’. If you’re still unable to locate the emails, please contact [email protected].



Warning about Phishing Attacks
Please be advised that Stacks tokens will be sold only upon qualification by the SEC, and the tokens do not currently trade on any exchange. Official announcement of SEC approval and sale will be through or other official Blockstack communication channels. Potential investors should be cautious of phishing attacks and false information about our offering from unauthorized parties.

Rule 255 Legend
This communication may be deemed “testing the waters” material under Regulation A under the Securities Act of 1933. We are not under any obligation to complete an offering under Regulation A. We may choose to make an offering to some, but not all, of the people who indicate an interest in investing, and that offering might not be made under Regulation A. We will only be able to make sales after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has qualified the offering statement that we have filed with the SEC. The information in that offering statement will be more complete than the information we are providing now, and could differ in important ways. You must read the documents filed with the SEC before investing.

No money or other consideration is being solicited, and if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy the securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received until the offering statement filed by the company with the SEC has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification.

An indication of interest involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Any person interested in investing in any offering of Stacks tokens should review our disclosures and the publicly filed offering statement and the preliminary offering circular that is part of that offering statement at
