Lithuania based digital bank Bankera has raised €25m in a pre-ICO funding round. Bankera is building a regulated bank for the blockchain era, so it means it will be a digital bank with traditional banking services (eg, giving out loans) and will support both cryptocurrencies and regular currencies.
With DigitalX as its corporate advisor, it held the token sale to fast-track the development of a ‘digital bank’ for consumers operating in the blockchain era. “This announcement is an exciting milestone for Bankera,” says Leigh Travers, DigitalX CEO. “The result of its latest pre-ICO round is a testament to the strong interest and demand for the project being developed. “At the same time, we’re excited to see how Bankera will disrupt the traditional banking sector with its innovative blockchain-enabled innovation.”
