Spain-based bitcoin/crypto exchange platform Bit2Me has announced the launch of B2M, its native token. In the final step before the public sale, set to take place starting on September 6th, the company recently completed a seed funding round among private investors in which it has raised €2.5 million.
Bit2Me supports 50+ cryptocurrencies on its platform, including Ethereum, Cardano, Polkadot, Dogecoin, and Uniswap. Besides cryptocurrencies, its wallet supports euros. Since its founding, Bit2Me has carried out operations worth more than €1 billion and has active clients in more than 100 countries.
A total of 5 billion tokens with a nominal value between €0.01 and €0.002 per token will be offered. The public issuance will begin on September 6th, 2021, and end on September 30, 2021. The tokens can be purchased through Bit2Me’s website, where the token’s whitelist and whitepaper can be accessed.
Holders of the required balance of B2M tokens will enjoy a discount of up to 90% on services such as exchanges in Bit2Me Wallet and Bit2Me Trade, legal tender deposits and withdrawals, Bit2Me Card issuance and use, training at Bit2Me Academy, blockchain transfers, and OTC trading.
In addition, users will be able to pay the applied fees with their B2M token balance. By doing so, they will get an even greater discount on each Suite fee. A combined fee scheme will be implemented between the amount of B2M tokens held and the volume traded in the last 30 days.
Also, crypto-assets may be lent to third parties in exchange for the corresponding return. These users will obtain advantageous conditions on this service if they decide to collect these returns in B2M token. Moreover, users who make purchases from Bit2Me partners with their card will be reimbursed a percentage of the purchase at the end of the month. This percentage will be higher for those users who have tokens in their balance and want to receive this refund in tokens.
Governance and Advantages for Token Buyers
Bit2Me may include the functionality to use the B2M token to allow users to vote on Suite features, such as new cryptocurrencies, adding merchants to the marketplace, debit cards refunds. On the other hand, access to some of the new cryptocurrencies and features in the Bit2Me suite may be offered first to token holders, as well as to airdrops from partner projects that seek to work with Bit2Me’s user base.
