Bitcoin.com confirms the completion of a private sale round for its VERSE token. The team secured $33.6 million to bring its utility token to the broader bitcoin.com ecosystem. Numerous investors contributed to the round, including Digital Strategies, ViaBTC Capital, Redwood City Ventures, 4SV, and various influencers and thought leaders, including Roger Ver and David Wachsman.
The Verse project will become a crucial addition to the Bitcoin.com ecosystem and its cryptocurrency products and services. Through the VERSE token, Bitcoin.com can link the utility and rewards features of VERSE to every step in people’s crypto journey.
Digital Strategies Managing Partner Eric Weiss adds:
“In our view, the utility of the Verse token in conjunction with the Bitcoin.com brand and broad suite of tools will create a powerful moat for its ecosystem. We’re thrilled to be part of this journey with Bitcoin.com and Verse.”
A similar sentiment is echoed by KuCoin Ventures Chief Investment officer Justin Chou:
“The next wave of growth in crypto will be led by strong global brands that create real-world products for millions of people. Bitcoin.com will accelerate the development of products and partnerships that expand their reach globally.”
VERSE will be minted as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain in the summer of 2022. Its functionality is similar to CRO, BNB, and FTT, the utility tokens of the Crypto.com, Binance, and FTX platforms, respectively. However, some VERSE functionality is more akin to native CeFi tokens – like Nexo’s NEXO – and native decentralized trading protocols tokens like Uniswap’s UNI.
Bitcoin.com CEO Dennis Jarvis comments:
