CG Blockchain, Inc., a New York-based firm building powerful sets of blockchain-based services and tools for the financial services sector, has announced that its affiliate, BCT, Inc., has raised $
31 25 million at the close of the online public sale of its (BCT’s) BCT ERC20-compliant utility token.
According to a press release CoinReport received from Transform Group, CG Blockchain’s PR firm, the sale started April 1 and the tokens will be distributed at the end of May. Prior to the distribution date, BCT will carry on consultations with concerned parties that consist of distribution partners, beta testers and exchanges, who could yet purchase the token past the end of the public sale. For these potential purchasers, the firm has set a cap of an extra $20 million.
BCT provides an all-inclusive collection of exclusive and third party application tools for wealth management firms, hedge funds and other institutional traders to trade digital currency via its Blockchain Terminal, an integrated, single interface for trading digital currency across 65 main digital currency exchanges.
ComplianceGuard is one of the third party applications intended for the terminal. It is owned by CG Blockchain, the first software developed to supervise desktops of traders while recording all transactions to a private blockchain, making transactions irreversible. The terminal and software are presently operating with a handpicked group of traders and hedge funds that manage about $1.8 billion in assets.
CG Blockchain president Bob Bonomo said in the press release we received, “During the past two months, the Blockchain Terminal has hit milestone after milestone: growing its exchange base from two to four to 40 to now over 80 exchanges on the platform. The Blockchain Terminal now features a UI/UX that is beautiful and easy to navigate, and a consolidated order book that is much easier to use than any other platform we’ve seen. The Blockchain Terminal has been shipped to domestic and international partners in both crypto and traditional trading. And there is much more to come.”
CG Blockchain is also dynamically working with firms such as algorithm marketplace Tradingene and computer technology corporation Dell for extra features and markets.
Joel Emery of Tareo Capital, a Blockchain Terminal tester and CG Blockchain advisor, said, “To have achieved what the team at BCT Inc has managed to do during such a difficult time for the ICO market is extraordinary – and I believe the Blockchain Terminal will change the way the market operates when it is adopted widely.”
The terminal ledger is primarily powered by the BCT utility token. The terminal also comprises a secondary ERC20-compliant coin that signifies subscription and entitlement to the services offered by the native BCT token. The secondary token is available since the launch of the platform. Together, both the coins protect integrity and offer incentives for the accurate operation of the terminal platform.
Bonomo added, “Given the current turbulence of the ICO market, we couldn’t be happier about the response to the Blockchain Terminal token. We want to thank all of our advisors, partners, employees, and token participants for their efforts during this process.
“As impressive as that effort is, we still have much work ahead, from finding additional partners to token distribution to continuing to build out the top crypto-focused resource for hedge funds and other investors.”
