In November, we announced that we were developing Bankera’s own cryptocurrency exchange platform, but we did not elaborate on the reasons behind this decision. Bankera‘s team has always been oriented towards building a strong and long-lasting community. While working hand in hand with our community, we were able to better identify the needs of crypto-users. We believe developing our own exchange will address those needs.
Our community members frequently ask about the listing of Banker (BNK) token on external exchanges. Today, we have great news! Bankera has finalized an agreement with one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, HitBTC. It means that BNK tokens will be listed on the HitBTC exchange.
On November 25th we announced that Bankera is going to have its own exchange platform as part of our goal of becoming a one-stop shop for cryptocurrency users. We wanted to work closely with our ICO contributors in order to develop a digital currency exchange platform that fits the needs of the crypto community. Thus, we have launched a trading competition designed to test our platform. After much anticipation, we are finally revealing the winners of the first round of the contest who won over 2 BTC worth of prizes.
This week, a major crackdown on cryptocurrency related card providers happened, and our main card issuer (WaveCrest) suspended all cards issued to cryptocurrency companies. It was a major shock for the industry and especially providers who were only offering prepaid cards. However, the effect of this for Bankera/SpectroCoin will be minor as we already have an agreement with a new card issuer in place, as well as we are not solely a prepaid card provider.
We are happy to announce that Audrius Žiugžda has joined Bankera’s advisory board.
As you already know, we finalized Bankera’s pre-ICO a month ago by reaching our set hardcap of 25 million Euros. We want to, once again, thank all 16 000+ of you who have participated in our pre-ICO token sale.
Since then, we have been working hard on product development and have added new services, including the issuance of IBANs and cryptocurrency-powered debit cards, to our MVP – SpectroCoin. We believe that all of this shows that we are not just smoke and mirrors, but that we are delivering on our promises to the contributors of this project. Thus, as promised, we would like to announce that Bankera will be launching its long-awaited ICO token sale on the 27th of November.
In this blog post, we bring you the latest updates about the Bankera project. Since our last update, we have launched several exciting features which users can currently try at SpectroCoin.
Last week, on September 19, we finalized our pre-ICO by reaching the set hard-cap of 25 million EUR – the first milestone in the fundraising of Bankera. We want to thank all 16 000+ of you who have participated in our pre-ICO.
