1.53亿美元!区块链项目Bancor创数字货币融资最高纪录

6月13日消息,区块链项目Bancor宣布通过首次数字货币发行(ICO)的方式,筹集了价值约1.53亿美元的以太币。Bancor也因此成为数字货币中获得融资最高的平台。

2016年上半年,当时被认为是最大的众筹项目The DAO获得超过1.5亿美元融资,但获得融资不久之后就遭受黑客攻击,以当时17.5美元的以太币交易价格计算,被盗的以太币价值已经超过6000万美元。

据了解,本轮融资的投资方包括来自德丰杰风险投资公司的投资人Time Draper,以及专注于投资区块链领域的创企Blockchain Capital。作为本次交易的一部分,Draper加入这个项目并担任顾问。

在本次货币发行中,Bancor发行了将近8000万的BNT(Bancor network token,即Bancor网络货币),该货币持有量最高者拥有6600万BNT,占总量的83.96%。这8000万BNT中有一半将被出售到市场中,剩余一半留作备用。公司发布的一则博客表示,剩余的资金将被用于寻求合作、社区拨款、公众奖励和项目咨询等。

据介绍,这次ICO吸引了1万多名买家,目前已经收到了1.5万笔交易申请。甚至有一位买家申请购买690万BNT,价值约2700万美元。

Bancor项目由Bprotocol Foundation于2017年推出,声称该平台就是要让用户更轻松地发行自己的区块链货币。

ICO获得成功,但也遭受质疑

事实上,这种出售电子货币的筹资模式开始被广泛采用。

今年6月初,泰国在线支付创企Omise计划通过销售期数字货币OmiseGo,以获得1900万美元融资。Omise还希望能够进行ICO,即使用比特币和以太币等数字货币进行融资。

火狐浏览器前CEO成立的网页浏览器创企Brave获得了3500万美元融资(同样采取以太币的形式),不到30秒就已经销售一空。今年四月以太预测市场Gnosis也获得了1250万美元融资。

在2016年下半年,Iconomy、Singular DTV、First Blood以及Decent等公司ICO也非常成功,可以看出,加密货币社区对私人区块链新兴公司众售代币的支持。

然而,整个加密货币预售机制也受到一些专家的批评,专家称ICO不合法,尤其是代币预售这一概念的合法性难以确证。其主要原因在于,参与ICO的绝大多数项目,连系统的技术层面都没有完成。另外,很多区块链项目还有这几点需要考量:绝大多数ICO项目缺乏代码;估值过高;系统不完善等。

Initial coin offering by Bancor sets a new industry record.

The Bancor token project has raised approximately $153m in an initial coin offering in ether, the native currency on the Ethereum blockchain.

The funding is understood to have just about surpassed the previous record, which was The DAO in 2016 at $152m.

In a crowd sale that concluded yesterday (12 June), more than 390,000 was collected in tokens, valued at $152.3m in current prices.

In total, more than 79m Bancor network tokens (BNTs) were created and 50pc were sold to the public, while the remaining 50pc were allocated for future use, according to CoinDesk.

In a white paper outlining its goals, Bancor explained that 50pc of BNTs will be issued to the contributors in the fundraiser; 20pc allocated to partnerships, community grants and public bounties; 20pc to the foundation’s long-term operating budget; and 10pc to founders, team members, advisers and early contributors.

Crytocurrency frenzy

Launched in 2017 by the Bprotocol Foundation, Bancor is a platform to make it easier for users to launch their own blockchain tokens.

The Bancor sale was backed by Blockchain Capital, an investment firm focused on blockchain start-ups.

One of the investors understood to have taken part in the crowd sale is celebrated Silicon Valley investor Tim Draper of VC fund Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

Draper is understood to be keeping a keen eye on cryptocurrency, having invested in a number of bitcoin start-ups. In 2014, he acquired 30,000 bitcoin as part of a US government auction.

Prices for Ethereum currency surged to record levels this week of $407.10, a 5,000pc increase since January, when Ethereum was trading at $7.98.

This comes after bitcoin traded above $3,000 for the first time on Sunday (11 June).
