TOKERO is one of the most preferred cryptocurrency exchanges in Romania. The first version of TOKERO was Romania-based LDV Bank, which was launched in September 2017.
With a turnover of 2.5 million euros and a transaction volume of 75 million euros reported in 2021, the company TOKERO, the market leader in the field of crypto in Romania, opens the second round of financing, with a target in the area of investment funds and angel investors.
The company, which currently has more than 40,000 customers and aims to reach at least 1 million customers in the coming years, also announces that this is a unique opportunity for individuals to purchase TOKERO shares for two weeks starting from November 10, 2022.
“Following some discussions with important members of our community, especially from TOKERO PRO, we took into account the distribution of an allocation of 300,000 euros in the TOKERO community, allocation divided into 50 tickets from 2,500 euros to 50,000 euros. This is most likely the last opportunity to purchase stakes in TOKERO as an individual, as we are in advanced discussions with several VCs. We take advantage of the fact that this kind of negotiation takes even a good few months, so we are now launching this <Blitz> round to the community. The round is planned to start on November 10, 2022 and last for two weeks, until November 24. And those who sign up in the first week will benefit from a considerable discount”, states Marius Morra – CEO & Co-Founder TOKERO.
Through this approach, the two founders of TOKERO, Marius Morra and Sabin Simionescu, aim to facilitate the access of the TOKERO community to the company with which many of the members have been since the beginning. “First, it’s a sign of appreciation for those who have been with us since launch, and we also have a strategic goal to turn our community members into even fiercer ambassadors than they are today.
Second, crypto investors usually have an appetite for tokens or NFTs, but we were amazed to have requests for stakes in our company as soon as we announced our second round of funding. Diversification of investments and portfolio is a crucial thing in general in investments, so we can only welcome and honor these requests through the community round”, adds Marius Morra.
According to zf.ro, Tokero announced on Saturday that it is starting to expand internationally, and the first country for which it opens the platform is France.
“Tokero France means that we are taking an international step that was intended for a long time in Romania, because crypto exchanges have been trying to take this step abroad, but nothing has materialized so far. Our platform is ready to receive customers from France, language, support, everything needed”, said Marius Morra, CEO of Tokero, exclusively for zf.ro.
The market in France is a regulated one, and exchange operators must obtain an operating license and comply with the rules imposed by the authorities. Tokero has already started the process to obtain such a license.
“We took a lot of interest in this aspect and until you get a license, clients can come to you as well. You can’t do much marketing in France, but customers can come. We already have clients from France, hence this approach”.
The first services that the Romanian platform will offer in France will be those of ramp on and ramp off, i.e. funding and withdrawal of the crypto account. At the same time, the Romanians want to attract new crypto projects to attract funding from investors through Tokero, this service being known as a launchpad.
