Nejc issued the following letter:
In response to high levels of demand from our stakeholders, we are today offering savvy investors the opportunity to take an equity stake in Bitstamp on BnkToTheFuture.com, a global online investment platform that allows qualifying investors to invest in the future of finance and technology. As you would expect, bitcoin is of course accepted! With venture capitalist Pantera Capital having already invested USD 10 million in seed funding, we feel confident that the smart money is on us. You are more than welcome to join us as we continue to bring prudence and sanity to our industry. Operating as we do in a fledgling market with huge potential for growth, we are firmly of the opinion that the early bird does indeed catch the worm. This opportunity for qualifying investors to invest in Bitstamp is no different and could very well turn out to be the best way to welcome in your 2017, a year which holds great promise for our industry. To get things up and running, we are giving Bitstamp customers a 24-hour head start before we go live on BnkToTheFuture.com. The round will close on 24 January 2017.
