Storj – BnkToTheFuture Case Study

Simon Dixon

These days it’s  impossible for businesses and governments around the world to protect confidential files from hackers.

In 2014,  hackers gained access to very private pictures of Hollywood actresses in the notorious Apple iCloud hack.

Heads of state and presidential candidates like Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton have been spied on, their phones compromised, and emails leaked.

On top of this, Edward Snowden revealed how a  large number of companies are forced by governments to hand over your files. They are given little choice.

As long as all these files keep being stored on servers belonging to big companies like Amazon, Google, Apple and Dropbox, hackers will keep hacking.

Unfortunately, because they have much of the world’s files, they are a constant target for hackers as well as government demands.

At BnkToTheFuture we believe that there must be a better way and when we found Storj, we began to realise that these problems may become history.

Storj developed files storage solutions to tackle these issues and chose to raise part of their funding on our Online Investment Platform – BnkToTheFuture.com  

When the creator of Bitcoin invented the Blockchain it made it possible for you to own your own money and send it cheaper, faster and more securely than when using a bank.

Storj allows anybody to store their files encrypted across a Blockchain-based decentralised network of computers rather than trusting one company to keep them safe. This means that just like Bitcoin they can be stored cheaper, faster and more securely and there is no central point of failure. It also means that anybody can rent out their spare hard drive space and get paid for contributing to the network.

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 see the total number of professional investors, how much they have invested, and the amount of dividends that they’ve received.

Storj was a perfect match for us. They had a top lineup of support from angel investors at Google Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Techstars and now BnkToTheFuture.

They wanted more 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.

We gave Storj 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 Storj through one of our Venture Capital funds, meaning, investors got to co-invest with us on the same terms and our interests are aligned.

If Storj floats on a stock market, is acquired in the future or pays investors dividends, investors get their returns minus our 5% 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 Storj 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!

Just like Storj, you can get involved by making a quick online application for finance at BnkToTheFuture.com or register to see if you qualify to invest.
