✅ Investment platform BnkToTheFuture was founded in the UK in 2010 and has later relocated to the Cayman Islands (ref.nr 1189274). BnkToTheFuture aims to become the largest online investment platform in the world. Their goal is to co-invest with other professional investors in the future of this new FinTech, Blockchain and Bitcoin industry. With over 47,500 members, BnkToTheFuture already has the largest community of online investors that have access to their platform.
This past February BnkToTheFuture had a funding round in the form of an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), where they launched their BF Token (BFT). The crowd sale was initiated on the BnkToTheFuture platform and they raised 33,000,000 USD. BF Tokens were sold for 0.10 USD a piece. BF token can be used as a Proof of Membership token or as an incentive on the BnkToTheFuture platform. It can also be traded on several digital asset exchanges, like Huobi Pro.
✅ BnkToTheFuture (BFT) is listed on coinmarketcap and is currently ranked at spot number 103, with a market cap of approximately 104,000,000 USD.
BF token was released to the public at the end of March 2018. The price has seen a steady rise in the beginning and has since come down a little. Under the current market conditions BFT has performed really well, considering it is still up 100% since it was first listed on exchanges while other tokens have suffered some heavy losses.
BnkToTheFuture is listed on Huobi Pro, Ethfinex and Gate.io. and has an average 24-hour trading volume of around 2,000,000 USD worth of BTF.
✅ A few companies BnkToTheFuture invested in during early funding rounds are:
🔒 Civic (CVC): The secure identity platform and ecosystem that gives businesses and individuals access to the tools needed to protect and control identities.

BnkToTheFuture also invested in Ethereum, Maidsafe, Storj, Factom, Blockchain Capital, Tierion and other projects in an early stage.
✅ The company roadmap for 2018:
➡️ Q1 2018: Main focus was the release and distribution of BF Tokens and listing on digital asset exchanges.
➡️ Q2 2018: Voting portal launch, beta test wallet and develop order book for tokenized securities.
