The approach will raise the fund’s credibility in mainstream markets, offering a showcase for blockchain projects seeking recognition from larger investors.
“The Mainstreet Investment token offering will change the game for investing on a worldwide stage,” Granger said. The excitement associated with the project “keeps our team getting out of bed every morning to see what we’re going to do next.”
Mainstreet Investments will hold a crowdsale of 50 million tokens on Jan. 15, 2017 to March 15, 2017, capped at $25 million. An initial token offering memorandum outlines the sale’s goals and objectives according to Intellisys Capital, the fund’s manager and general partner.
The fund, led by Intellisys’ Chief Executive Officer Jason Granger and Charlie Shrem, the company’s chief technology officer, will try to change the way investment can occur through the use of blockchain technology.
“We want to be as upfront and transparent as possible about the token offering and what investors can expect,” said Shrem in a prepared statement. “We’re raising the bar when it comes to raising funds through an initial token offering.”
Intellisys will hold a live video session for members of Coinfund’s Slack channel on Wednesday, Dec. 21 starting at 11 a.m. EST. Sign up at slack.coinfund.io.
