Founded in 2017, ILIIUM has grown gradually and steadily, thanks in particular to support from the BPI and some Grand-Est region as well as the finalization of a first fundraiser in 2018. The company now has French, Belgian and Luxembourgish investors among its shareholders.

The ILIIUM team has given itself a mission: the massive adoption of cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain are two essential revolutions that will play a central role in the economy of tomorrow. They allow the exchange of values ​​without a trusted third party (without banks) and have applications in a very large number of business sectors. This allows everyone to reclaim their privacy and their purchasing power : the aim of the company is to make this technology accessible to everyone. The best way to acquire cryptocurrencies is to produce them, and ILIIUM will offer a complete and accessible range of tools for this purpose.

It will be time to come back to Cruxpool’s commercial offers a little later, but we will already note that the company offers Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) mining, in a Windows environment (Linux to come).
