Lykke has announced the launch of its proprietary 1-year forward offering to be officially unveiled on February 9th 2017 at a Lykke-hosted event in Zurich, Switzerland. From February 9th 2017, Lykke will offer a novel financial instrument which operates much like today’s forward contracts with the benefit of being ‘at the run’ for the entirety of the contract period — a significant difference from current procedure which sees settlement occur only at the settlement date. Investors can obtain a 20% discount subject to holding Lykke coins for 1 year.
