We told you on Monday that there was a lot more to come out of Digitex in Q2! Well, today, we’re excited to announce the launch of our brand-new IEO platform Blockfunder. Through our token launch platform, we aim to help finance and fast-track some of crypto’s most exciting and promising projects–and we’ll be kicking off with our very own in-house developed crypto social network Blockster (BXR). Read on for further details.
What Is Blockfunder?
Blockfunder is a platform that allows new and innovative cryptocurrency projects to benefit from the technology, experience, and network effect of the Digitex exchange. Through Blockfunder, you can get in on the ground floor of up-and-coming projects at their earliest stages of development with the assurance that only the highest quality offerings will be held.
Our internal team of engineers, compliance experts, and marketers will assess the project’s whitepaper, code, regulatory position, community, team, and potential, and hold new participants to the highest standards before allowing them to hold an IEO on our exchange. Through Blockfunder, we will be helping to finance a combination of in-house-built products like Blockster (BXR) and innovative external projects that we believe have great potential to succeed.
As well as supporting innovation and providing exclusive investment opportunities to crypto enthusiasts, Blockfunder is designed to lend additional utility to the DGTX token. Various token sales through Blockfunder will accept DGTX as payment, thus helping to restrict the circulating supply of the DGTX token and helping it recapture value.
CEO of Digitex Adam Todd commented: “We’re really excited to be launching our own IEO platform that will also introduce a new utility for our native DGTX token. As we raise funds for projects, partial payment will be accepted with DGTX, meaning a lot will be collected back from the total circulating supply.”
What Is Blockster (BXR)?
The very first project to launch through Blockfunder will be Blockster, a social network dedicated to cryptocurrency enthusiasts with its own native token (BXR) that will be used for advertising and commerce on the platform, as well as staking. Blockster will be driven by user-generated content that focuses on making money in crypto and blockchain.
Unlike existing social media platforms today, Blockster will provide everything in one platform. Crypto enthusiasts will no longer have to open several tabs to check the prices of their favorite assets, watch crypto influencers, create content, chat to friends, or read the news.
Blockster will come complete with a full market data feed for all cryptocurrencies, just like CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko. It will also have its own user-generated blog called Blockdesk, and a mobile app and NFT marketplace where users can buy and sell some of the hottest digital assets in crypto. With all these unique features in mind, Blockster aims to become ‘the social network’ for the crypto industry.
Blockster has been designed and developed in-house by Digitex specifically for crypto users, traders, and enthusiasts looking for opportunities to make money through investing and trading in digital assets. Unlike many projects at the initial coin offering stage, Blockster has already been under development for over a year now and is operating in a closed testnet version.
The Blockster (BXR) Token Sale
The BXR token sale will be split into six separate phases that will sell a total of 10 million BXR tokens. This is 10% of the total token supply. For further details on the BXR token breakdown, please see the Blockster whitepaper here.
Each phase of the token sale lasts until the start of the next phase or until all tokens have been sold, whichever comes first. The first phase will kick off on June 7, 2021, and the last phase, phase 6, will end on October 12, 2021 (or when all tokens have been sold).
The BXR token will start at $1 per BXR in the first phase and the price will gradually rise throughout the phases to $2.25. In the initial phase, as well as two other phases, only DGTX will be accepted as payment for BXR tokens. In the other three phases, we will be accepting BTC, ETH, and USDC.
Once the token sale is concluded, BXR will be listed on Digitex, Uniswap, and other major exchanges that will be announced soon. You must complete KYC to take part in this token sale and US residents and citizens are unfortunately not allowed to participate.
We’ll be releasing more details about Blockster before the token sale begins, so be sure to stay tuned to our blog.
