Uphold – BnkToTheFuture Case Study

Simon Dixon

Ever wondered why sending your money abroad is more difficult and expensive than spending it at home?

Ever pondered why your deposits at a bank could be taken from you when the bank takes huge risk with your money?

At Bnk to the future we believe that sending money should be as as cheap and easy as sending an email.

We’re surprised how few people question what happens to their money when deposited at a bank.

Well, you’ll be glad to know that these problems will soon become history.

Uphold developed products to tackle these issues and chose to raise part of their funding on our Online Investment Platform – BankToTheFuture.com

Unlike banks, Uphold believes money should flow freely between people – whatever the currency, and that developers should be able to build ‘money Apps’ on top of their technology.

Unlike banks, Uphold believes that customers should know exactly how much money is on deposit with them.

Unlike banks, Uphold believes they should hold more money on reserve than is deposited with them.

…and we agree.

BnkToTheFuture.com is the largest Online Investment Platform with thousands of professional investors waiting to invest in Financial and Technological innovation.

Go to our homepage and you’ll get to see the total number of professional investors, how much they have invested, and the amount of dividends that they’ve received.

Uphold was a perfect match for us. They had a team co-founded by Halsey Minor, the co-founder of SalesForce, CNET and the company that later became Google Voice.

They had already raised some funding

and they had completed over $630m in cloud money transactions..

They wanted funding from professional investors who believed in them and knew the value of their business.

and they wanted the investment to come through fast, in different currencies and with a streamlined compliance and documentation process.

A solution was found, and Uphold decided to list on Bnk To The Future.

We gave Uphold access to a global community of thousands of qualifying investors ready to invest in Financial and Technological innovation.

We gave them a platform that complies with international financial regulations tailored for most major currencies and countries.

We structured the investment in a way that meant they only get one registered investor.

We cut out the painful admin, legal costs and problems raising further finance in the future, as compliance and documentation was completed by us in an optimised investment structure.

And all under a “no win, no fee” agreement with no up-front costs.

We provided all our investors with one investment agreement and a forum to communicate with the team quickly, efficiently and privately with additional investor protections. Investors can download all legal work, due diligence and certificates via our platform whenever they want.

We also invested in Uphold through one of our Venture Capital funds – Bitcoin Capital, meaning, investors got to co-invest with us on the same terms and our interests are aligned.

If Uphold floats on a stock market, is acquired in the future or pays investors dividends, investors get their returns minus our 5% administration fee.

We built our Online Investment Platform with one purpose in mind – to prepare for a radically different future in Financial and Technological Innovation…

Businesses just like Uphold can raise finance in a safe, fast and effective way, while our investors get to allocate a portion of their wealth to an extremely disruptive and fast growing area that many are beginning to see could change the world of finance – FOREVER!
