The token sale was hosted in partnership with ShapeShift.io, who provided the backend for contributors to pay with bitcoin and any of the platform’s supported altcoins. “We were fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Spells of Genesis for their BitCrystals crowdsale,” stated the team. “As an instant exchange for digital assets, we want to see a universe of such assets flourish – currencies, commodities, tokens, and much that hasn't yet been dreamed. Spells of Genesis is pushing this narrative forward, revealing but the tip of the digital asset iceberg.”
“As our first crowdsale, Spells of Genesis helped open a new product channel for ShapeShift. Our exchange technology was a useful building block for the dissemination of digital assets to users around the world. We now have a good understanding of how to improve and build this technology further – for the genesis age of digital assets will see many such sales.”

The milestones associated with the token sale are being overseen by key officers Erik Voorhees, of ShapeShift.io, and Jeremy Johnson, of CoinDaddy.io, who hold two of the signing keys for the multisig wallet offered by Coinkite. Coinkite offers their multisig wallet service with up to 15 signatories for free.
"It's amazing what you can do with Bitcoin and Coinkite Multisig. We're the only large wallet that supports up to 15 keys; any of which may be held on Coinkite or offline or any combination. Spells of Genesis was able to escrow the funds without requiring any trust from Coinkite and yet leverage all of our Bitcoin Infrastructure. We love pushing the boundaries of whats possible with the blockchain and look forward to their next stages."
- Rodolfo Novak, Coinkite Founder and CEO
According to EverdreamSoft, Milestone #1 has now been completed. This will release 25% of the funds raised during the token sale. EverdreamSoft released Spells of Genesis Alpha 0.1 last Friday which is available to test.
“I am having a great time testing the alpha version of the game, and I am really impressed with the SoG delivering milestone #1 so quickly after the crowdsale. This game is sure to be a homerun with gamers.”
