This will only enhance the validity of PinkCoins in the market place.”

Moreover, the holders of PinkCoin will be able to trade PinkCoins for other assets and asset pool backed tokens on The BitGem Decentralized Marketplace which is expected to be available in the second quarter this year. PinkCoins can be stored and traded with any wallet and exchange provider that supports tokens that allow trading of tokens which follow Ethereum's standardized contract APIs, including the official Ethereum client implementations.
