Finally I got the answers I was looking for...
Thank you very much!!!
2 weeks after the official launch you will be able to claim this stake by sending it back to the account which created this asset and he'll send the correct amount to your NEM account.
When is the expected launch?
How will I send it back to the account which created the asset? Where do I find this account?
How long will I have to claim my NEM coins? What happen if I am on holidays and I don't claim them on time?
Appologies but I am IT newbie and trying to learn all these...
Again thank you very much!
:-) I'm glad you got answers! Thank you for your interest and perseverance. And welcome to this community.
It is very nice to have an IT newbie picking NEM out of so many (confusing) cryptocurrencies (cryptos for short).
To answer your question I'll copy/paste a section from the first post on this thread:NEM Timeline/Roadmap
As it is written here, official launch is still in To Be Announced stage. We are getting to that but no one knows at what precise date that will be. I guess sometime in the fall.
After the official launch, 2 weeks after that you will be able (as well as me too) to exchange your tokens for NEM in the manner already described. But don't be alarmed or worried. Detailed instructions as well as guidance will be available either on official thread here on bitcointalk or on our official forum http://forum.nemcoin.com/
Also, you can follow what is going on through our twitter account or any other means that are useful to you. Here is the list (also c/p from the first page of this thread):Useful Links
If you have any questions (doesn't matter how basic they are), please feel free and welcomed to ask them. If you would prefer to have a private conversation send me PM (private message) either here on this forum or on the official forum (forum.nemcoin.com). I have same nickname there too - Tompa.
I hope this will help you! Welcome once again!
