Join the private round of the BABB equity crowdsale

We’re very excited to announce that the private round of the BABB equity crowdsale will go live on Tuesday 19th June at 12pm London time.

Please REGISTER HERE for the private round of the equity crowdsale.

We are aiming to raise at least £750,000 of our £1.5 million target during the private round. There is no cap on the private round, other than the overall cap for the equity crowdsale which is £4.2 million.

We are selling 1% equity in BABB per £1 million invested, based on a pre-money valuation of £100 000 000.

The private round is reserved exclusively for friends, family and the BABB community. We’ve got an extra-special deal for you, our early supporters, to take advantage of before the crowdsale goes public.

Private round perks

  • Equity in BABB. You own 1 share in BABB for every £1 you invest.
  • Investor BAX bonus. If you invest in the private round, you get 40 BAX tokens for every £1 you invest (minimum investment £100).
  • BAX airdrop. If we hit our £1.5 million fundraising target on CrowdCube, everyone who participated in the token sale will receive BAX airdrop (even if they did not invest in the equity crowdsale).

Edit: the BAX airdrop will now be divided equally between everyone who participated in the token sale and all equity crowdsale participants (including public round).

We have increased the total BAX pool for airdrop and bonuses from 180 million to 200 million. The airdrop total will be calculated after BAX investor bonuses have been allocated, and then this total will be divided between everyone who is eligible to receive airdrop.

Why an equity crowdsale?

BABB is applying for a banking license. We’re making good progress in Lithuania and the UK and preparing to submit formal applications.

Now that the banking license application process is advancing, we must turn our attention to the minimum capital requirement, which is paid to the relevant central bank as a type of insurance. Every licensed bank is required to provide this.

After seeking legal advice and speaking to the regulators in the UK and Lithuania, we have come to the conclusion that we can’t use the funds raised in the token sale for this capital requirement.

The banking license is of critical importance to the BABB project, and the minimum capital requirement is vital to obtain a banking license. It’s therefore important that we keep control, so we have decided to raise funds via equity crowdfunding.

An equity crowdsale gives our early supporters the opportunity to own a stake in the company, and it’s a chance for us to grow our awesome community even further by introducing ourselves to a new audience of people.
