Trade.io published on its website that its ICO has been completed. The company has successfully raised $31,169,749. The number of participants in the ICO was listed at 15,073, purchasing a total of 65,782,147 Trade Tokens.
The ICO picked up steam rather swiftly. It was just over a week ago when the total amount raised surpassed $20 million. The company will use the money to fund its various initiatives, including a blockchain exchange creation. Additionally, one of the goals of the ICO was to strengthen the liquidity pool, which has yet to be achieved as a result of the raised capital.
Trade.io has been working to solidify partnerships that will enable the company to develop and implement its technological agenda. Last month, it reached an agreement with Civic Technologies, a US-based blockchain based identity platform. Trade.io intends to leverage the partnership, in order to use blockchain technology to induce faster KYC verification processes for trade.io users. Moreover, in an effort to assure the fast and simple conversion of its ICO tokens, the company recently announced that it has forged an agreement to integrate Bancor Protocol, through which its Trade Token (TIO) can be converted instantaneously to Ethereum ERC20 tokens.
