Bitfinex's Private Token Sale Raised $1 Billion in 10 Days, Exec Says

  • CoinDesk

Cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex has raised $1 billion through its native token in a private sale, according to its chief technology officer. Paolo Ardoino‏ tweeted on Monday that Bitfinex has achieved the target in just 10 days, with participation from “giant” firms from both within the cryptocurrency industry and outside.

The funds were collected in the form of USDT, the stablecoin operated by the closely-linked firm Tether, according to the tweet. Some of the investors, who were not named, invested over $100 million worth of tokens each, Ardoino‏ said, adding that others also contributed investments of over $1 million each.

Bitfinex announced the token offering earlier this month, days after the New York Attorney General’s office revealed that it was looking for more information about the exchange’s alleged cover-up of an $850 million loss. The missing funds, which were held by third-party payment processor Crypto Capital, have been seized by several authorities.
