Blockchain Investment Platform BnkToTheFuture attracts $33M in token sale

Global fintech, bitcoin and blockchain investment platform BnkToTheFuture has raised $33 million in its token sale.

According to the official release, the private sale sold out in less than 15 hours, whilst the public sale of 30 million ERC-20 compatible BFT tokens sold out even faster in just two minutes, 17 seconds. Notable investors in the private sale included Hong Kong based Kinetic Capital, FBG Capital, Hashed (Formerly Blockchain Partners Korea), Charlie Schrem’s CryptoIQ, Roaming Capital and other Bitcoin industry veterans.

BnkToTheFuture.com aimed to show how a token sale can be conducted in compliance with established securities laws. All participants in the public sale underwent a screening process prior to being whitelisted in order to comply with global KYC/AML regulations and all participants in the pre-sale went through a professional investor accreditation process. The exact same price was offered to both pre-sale and public sale participants with no preferential bonuses or discounts that can lead to unfair markets.

“In 2015 our platform allowed our investors to obtain equity exposure in what have become some of today’s most valuable companies such as BitFinex, Kraken, BitStamp, BitPay and ShapeShift, among many others,” said BnkToTheFuture Co-founder Simon Dixon. “We have always followed securities laws when conducting our offerings.”

“We thank everyone who participated and look forward to continuing to support the growth of the industry with compliance-driven securities token offerings and help bring ICO-style liquidity to securities while maintaining our Bitcoiner core values,” Dixon continued. “As every bank and broker scrambles to catch up we believe we already offer the optimal combination of compliance and innovation. The BF Token Sale was an example of how to do this with compliance-driven innovation in mind.”


Founded in 2011, BnkToTheFuture is a leading platform for investing in the equity and tokens of blockchain and fintech companies. The company is now set to launch its securities token market to enable the trading of equity-backed securities tokens later this year. The platform aims to offer real-time access, pricing and liquidity via a transparent marketplace for trading securities tokens.
