On November 25th, we announced that Bankera was 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 to develop a digital currency exchange platform that fits the needs of the crypto community. Thus, we launched a trading competition designed to test our platform. After much anticipation, we are finally revealing the winners for the first round of the contest. These winners will receive 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.
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.
