Chain acquisition of Measurable Data token was announced. Chain is thrilled to announce it will be acquiring the Measurable Data Token and its ecosystem products in a deal with a value of over $100 million (subject to the total number of MDT swapped for XCN of participating MDT holders).
The deal consists of acquiring the Measurable Data Token (MDT), the native digital utility token powering a decentralized data ecosystem, as well as its blockchain applications RewardMe and MeFi.

Its vision is to be a flagship consumer-facing crypto super app. Connecting individual users and merchants across the globe through the Chain ecosystem. The app will also rebrand as Chain Rewards in the coming months and the utility token will become XCN.
Chain will also be acquiring MeFi, a blockchain oracle that bridges capital market data with DeFi, to bring traditional finance data into oracle-power data streams. This will power ChainFi, Chain’s oracle system designed for Sequence clients to get access to trustless data and will have XCN become its native utility token.
Over 200,000 RewardMe users will now become part of the Chain ecosystem. An additional 30,000+ on-chain MDT holders on Ethereum and BNB Chain, as well as tens of thousands of off-chain MDT exchange users, will become XCN holders.
With this acquisition, there will be a sunset of the Measurable Data Token (MDT) which will be burned and swapped for the XCN token. MDT token holders will receive the benefit of the swap. It will also expect to receive a $0.08 MDT token value for the swap. Furthermore, the details of the swap discussing with the relevant parties the swap intends to occur in the next few weeks.

Fifty (50) percent of the swap, which represents $0.04, will be provided immediately upon the swap. In addition, the remaining $0.04 is to distribute to participating MDT holders via an airdrop. Nevertheless, over 4 quarters ($0.01 per quarter based on a TWAP for each release).
