Welcome to our second weekly update. Today we’ll cover last week’s major milestones, team expansion, and the latest developments, so let’s get right to it.
Co-founder Of Bitcoin.com Joins P2P
It is our great pleasure to announce that Mate Tokay has officially joined P2P Finance as CBDO. Mate is a man who needs little introduction. As the co-founder of Bitcoin.com and ex-CEO of Bitcoinist, Mr. Tokay is about as OG in crypto as Satoshi himself. Inspired by Christof’s talent and vision for DeFi, we are honored to have Mate on board with P2p Finance.
‘Crypto has a lot of amazing characteristics that I value and like. There is one that I love the most tho and that is freedom. With crypto, you can be your own bank. You are 100% in control. DeFi takes this to a whole new level. I like to be part of this revolution as we are building the future of finance for generations ahead. That’s why I joined P2P Finance.’
Smashing Fundraising Milestones
The team are excited by the great progress we have made in just a few weeks of fundraising. In fact, with 60% (15,000,000 tokens) of the seed round allocation already sold, and a large group of venture capital funds and key opinion leaders (KOLs) allocation still to process, retail investors will no longer be able to invest in our seed round.
