Having a long list of successful businesses its investors have invested in, two of them will be briefly highlighted, Bitfinex and Bitpesa.
Storj, a cloud sharing platform built on the blockchain is one of BnkToTheFuture’s successful investments. The startup had an investment goal of €800,000+, which it exceeded 300% by raising €2,000,000+ via convertible notes. Storm sought to solve the problem of centralized cloud storage such as about an hour downtime yearly, high vulnerability to hacking and expensive to access.
Spreading its tentacles to Africa, BnKToTheFuture successfully invested in Bitpesa, an international B2B blockchain based payment solution for Africa. Founder, Elizabeth Rossiello and her team were able to raise €2,000,000+ in funding for the crypto themed payments solution for frontier markets. Bitpesa works by moving money directly from your bank account to destination account without the long drawn expensive process of multiple conversions.
After a successful token sale, BnKToTheFuture is not done yet, they have got loaded plans yet to be executed. One of such, according to their roadmap is the plan to partner with an exchange (probably Huobi) to launch a secondary market for full tokenized securities.
