Blocktrade garners €4.5m from BTEX token sale to reinvent asset trading


Blocktrade, the gamified asset marketplace, has completed its exclusive Blocktrade Exchange Token (BTEX) sale round.

The round, which was held from May 5th to 18th, succeeded a fully subscribed pre-sale round earlier this year.

The sale amassed a total of €4.5m, with enthusiastic participation from over 1400 community members across 42 countries. Blocktrade CEO Christian Niedermueller said, “We are grateful for the overwhelming response and participation by Blocktrade VIP members to this exclusive token sale round.

This show of enthusiasm points to the appetite amongst crypto users today for an accessible and engaging digital asset trading platform. We now look forward to continuing to enhance the experience on offer to Blocktrade’s ever-growing community.”

At the heart of Blocktrade is its BTEX token, an integral part of the platform’s gamified ecosystem. Token holders can enjoy numerous benefits, from in-house and third-party games to unlocking level fast passes, physical rewards, NFT avatars, and token airdrops. BTEX also provides trading bonuses, live chat, priority support, deposit and withdrawal discounts, and additional APY on staking, and opens up alternative payment options within partner ecosystems.

Recently, the firm announced the launch of Blocktrade 3.0, marking the dawn of a new gamified universe. This new platform fuses gaming elements with crypto investing, embodying the BTEX token. Blocktrade 3.0 incorporates NFT avatars and an intricate level system, transforming user engagement with digital assets.

Blocktrade 3.0 features 50 unique levels, leaderboards, and challenges, enabling users to progress by meeting thresholds and earning BTEX tokens and XP points. This innovative blending of gaming and Web3 technology enhances platform interactivity and equips users to navigate the crypto landscape with accessible education.

Committed to user experience, Blocktrade places a high emphasis on security and regulatory compliance. The platform boasts over 5,000 class-B shareholders and complies with EU standards, having registered as a VASP with Estonian, Italian, and Slovenian regulators.
