About EPIC

EPIC is different kind of crypto company. It and its subsidiaries have developed a methodology that creates a usable digital currency enabling consumers to purchase basic products and services from standard retail and wholesale companies, including its subsidiaries EPIC Online Brokers, LLC and EPICcoinEx™ LLC.

Digital currencies must have and maintain a relatively stable price to be used in financial and commercial transactions. Cryptocurrencies generally are not a usable digital currency, because of their extreme price fluctuations. The price fluctuations create a lack of confidence, acceptance, and utilization in mainstream commercial and retail markets. EPIC’s digital currency will have a variable but stable price and possess an inherent potential for value appreciation.

Cryptocurrencies, for the most part, are a reckless speculative investment under the pretext of being a digital currency.

The EPICcoin™, to avoid being a reckless speculative investment, can be bought and sold through EPICcoinEx, LLC, which will maintain a bid and offering price at a calculated value with respect to the quoted spot price of silver. EPICcoin™ does have an element of speculation because it has a quoted price. An increase in price could give it greater purchasing power, but a decrease in price would reduce its purchasing power.
