For the first time ever a bank to be issues a fully-compliant cryptocurrency like Bitcoin

22 August 2017 09:45


The world of blockchain technology has taken a dive into the mainstream with growing interest worldwide in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple to name a few.

Impak Finance, a Canadian impact investment firm is launching the first ever fully-regulated cryptocurrency token. This is history in the making.

Impak Finance has launched an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) this week, having already raised £300,000 of Impak Coin, the first fully-compliant cryptocurrency dedicated to growing the impact economy.

Canada is among the central hubs witnessing a boom in blockchain technology related startups, both by leading social entrepreneurs like Paul Allard and world-class businessmen such as Don Tapscott.

Impak is using capitalism and technology as a force for good to create social impact on a global scale. The impact economy is substantial and growing rapidly.

According to statistics by the World Economic Forum, it is estimated to reach somewhere between £250 billion to £1 trillion globally by 2020.

Impak Finance is building an online ecosystem bringing citizens, businesses and investors together both digitally and face to face to grow an economy based on social values.

To accelerate the development of this transformation, they have launched Impak Coin (MPK). The public crowdsale of Impak Coin will close on September 20th.

Impak Finance is setting an example for ICO regulators across the globe by using a crowdfunding model which took them more than 6 months of academic research and compliance advice from the best legal firms in the world and Canadian regulators, to protect their participants.

In addition to their coin, Impak Finance has produced a detailed proposal to create the first ever chartered bank in Canada committed to the Impact Economy.

Blockchain technology is playing a pivotal role in this process and Impak Finance will be positioned at the focal point of this emerging biosphere, acting as a catalyst of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, alongside exciting startups such as Humaniq and Richtopia.
