TaaS Makes its Biggest Contribution to Date into VIMANA Global, Bringing the Airspace Industry to Blockchain
February 7, 2018 – Singapore – Token-as-a-Service (TaaS), the first-ever tokenized closed-end fund dedicated to blockchain assets, announced today its largest contribution to date into VIMANA Global, a company developing Autonomous Aerial Vehicles for Urban Air Mobility. The agreement was reached at the World Economic Forum 2018 in Davos, Switzerland. TaaS contributed to VIMANA Global the amount of 2071 ETH, equivalent to 2 million USD(T).
VIMANA Global is currently conducting a private pre-sale as a part of its on-going Token Generation Event (TGE).

VIMANA Global’s go-to-market strategy is centered around launching this network by participating in Smart Cities’ Urban Air Mobility programs with its patent-pending Vertical Take Off And Landing Autonomous Aerial Vehicles, a strategy collectively known as “Blockchain Airspace.”
“We are excited to welcome TaaS as another VIMANA supporter helping us to make Blockchain Airspace a reality,” said Evgeny Borisov, CEO and co-founder of VIMANA Global. “We are looking forward to benefiting from the technical expertise and business innovation fostered by TaaS’ innovative team.”
