The incorporation of Baldomero Falcones as Senior Advisor coincides with Bit2Me’s launch on September 6 of its B2M token, which will be the largest ICO undertaken in Spain. The company has completed a previous private sale among investors, reaching a record amount in our country, earning some €2.5 million. The holders of the token will receive benefits relating to Bit2Me products.
Falcones said, “Innovation is the engine of growth for companies, investors and countries, and innovation is in Bit2Me’s DNA. It is essential for progress. It is the factor that convinced me to join this exciting project led by Leif and Andrei.”
Leif Ferreira, founder and CEO of Bit2Me, added, “Baldomero will help us connect Bit2Me with the more traditional financial system. Our primary task is taking everyday cards to the crypto market in an exponential way. Our aim is for each new virtual currency we include to be incorporated into the Bit2Me Card.”
