Recall, New York’s Blockstack was the first company to receive the approval of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to conduct a token sale in accordance with the established provision “A +”. It allows small companies to raise funds from the general public, while observing less stringent regulatory requirements than during an IPO.
As part of the token sale, Blockstack received $ 15.5 million through the sale of more than 74 million Stacks tokens among US investors. The company received another $ 7.6 million from investors from Asia in accordance with Regulation “S”.
This token sale became part of a wider investment round, in which Blockstack raised $ 23 million.
Blockstack startup was created in 2013 and was originally called Onename. The project, which is also known for its work on decentralized Internet, previously managed to attract $ 50 million investment from well-known representatives of the blockchain industry and venture companies, including the Winklevoss brothers, Union Square Ventures, Digital Currency Group and Version One.
In February 2019, the company announced ongoing work on a new distributed protocol called Stacks, which uses the hash power of the Bitcoin network in combination with the Proof-of-Burn mechanism.
In September, the Blockchain cryptocurrency wallet provider announced the start of support for Stacks tokens in the product line for retail and institutional investors.
