Yesterday, May 20th, 2019, the well-known cryptocurrency exchange Kraken announced in its newsletter that it had entered into a partnership with the company BnkToTheFuture to offer small and large investors the opportunity to buy and own part of Kraken’s shares.
BnkToTheFuture is an online investment platform available worldwide. It allows investors to buy shares in companies active in innovative sectors, including fintech.
Sir Richard Branson commented on BnkToTheFuture:
“I like the goals of BnkToTheFuture where everything is open and transparent and people can see what happens with their money. It is great that they are offering support to entrepreneurs and businesses who will create jobs in the future”.
Kraken collaborates with BnkToTheFuture
In the email sent yesterday, the partnership with BnkToTheFuture has been announced, allowing users to buy the shares of the well-known exchange.
From Monday, May 20th, 2019, BnkToTheFuture will therefore offer registered users on its platform the opportunity to buy Kraken shares.
The purchase may be made until 20th June, 2019. There is a minimum investment of one thousand dollars, while the maximum threshold has not been reported.
Interested users must first register on the BnkToTheFuture platform via the official website. Those who are already registered can visit directly the web page dedicated to the shares of the Kraken exchange.
The platform will then guide users through the process of KYC verification and share purchase. As Kraken reported, the purpose of this choice is to democratise and make the access to its shares as simple as possible, in order to allow even the smallest users of the exchange to become actual Kraken investors.
