Bezant Blockchain Payment Service Token Sale Ends After One Hour, Raising $126 Million
Bezant Reach Pre-Sale Goal in One Hour, Making It Asia’s Fastest 2018 Token Sale
Bezant is one of the many decentralized payment and service platforms in the crypto world, and their recent presale for tokens just established a new record for sales. In fact, the entire available limit was sold within an hour, which is the fastest that any presale has concluded in Asia as a whole.
To make this feat even more impressive, the target sale was $16.8 million USD, and the entire sale only started at 10:00am SGT on Maty 3rd, 2018. However, by the end of that hour, the presale had actually received $126 million USD, which is much more than the company has tokens for.
In effort to promote more involvement in their platform, Bezant created a bonus round for investors that did not get in within that hour. The sale offered the equivalent of $4 million USD in tokens, but even that endeavor only lasted for about five minutes.
