ROADMAP UPDATES — 20 JUNE 2018

Buy SWM tokens on the Swarm platform, via Bancor

By popular demand Swarm has made it possible to purchase SWM tokens on the Swarm platform. These SWM tokens are needed to invest in the opportunities listed on the platform. Getting those tokens used to be a bit cumbersome. Not anymore. Swarm has added a Bancor widget which allows you to purchase SWM tokens with any of the cryptocurrencies accepted by Bancor. The tokens will be deposited into your ERC20 wallet, after which you can deposit them into the Swarm platform. Sign into your account to check out the new Bancor feature.

Invest with DAI Stablecoin on Swarm platform

Swarm is now supporting DAI Stablecoin by MakerDao. This means you can now deposit DAI and use it to invest directly into the opportunities listed on the Swarm platform. The two newest investment opportunities, SPRK and PCX, both accept DAI. Explore the investment opportunities today.

Recent DAI News: The Dai Stablecoin is a Game Changer for Ethereum and the Entire Cryptocurrency Ecosystem.

Manage your Swarm crypto-investments from your smartphone

To make crypto-investing as convenient as possible, Swarm has launched a mobile security token application for Android smartphones. With the app you’ll be able to manage your wallet, your portfolio and get a full transaction history, all on-the-go.

Download the Android app and leave a review.

Note: Work is underway to get the iOS version approved and launched.

Swarm to launch security tokens representing fractional shares in private companies

Tokens representing equity in individual private tech companies are coming to Swarm. While secondary access to private company equity is not new, tokenization is. The security tokens will give investors more flexibility and global access to opportunities, all via Swarm’s infrastructure. The first tokens offered will represent equity in Coinbase, Ripple, Robinhood, and DiDi.

New investment opportunity: SparkLabs Global Accelerator (SPRK)

SparkLabs, a U.S.-Korean venture capital firm, has partnered with Swarm Fund to launch SPRK, a security token that allows you to buy into two of their accelerator programs. The fund covers a 6-month Internet-of-Things (IoT)-focused initiative in Songdo, a Korean smart city. It also covers an accelerator for agriculture and food tech in Australia, called Cultiv8.

SparkLabs has already raised capital for both initiatives — $500K for the IoT program and $5.6 million for Cultiv8 — and it is aiming to bring in at least $6 million from the token. SPRK is now listed on the Swarm platform — view it here.

New Investment Opportunity: FARMcoin Venture Fund (FARM)

FARMcoin has entered into a partnership with Swarm Fund to launch FARM, a security token that allows you to invest in infrastructure to help unbanked subsistence farmers in Africa. The goal is to provide financial opportunities for the almost 700 million farmers across Africa, who either cannot get a loan or are forced to take one via moneylenders at uneconomic rates.

FarmCoin is a joint venture between GMEX Group’s subsidiary FinComEco and Block Commodities. It is focused on financial inclusivity and social responsibility and has already engaged with more than 20 countries across Africa. Check out this and the other investment opportunities on the Swarm website.
