$12M USD was raised through the presale, with $20M sold in the public crowdsale.
All participants in the sale were required to pass KYC verification.
The crowdsale was capped at $20M USD, with the ETH exchange rate being decided the day the sale contract launches. The price of tokens was always set at 900 BRD to 1 ETH.
The BRD token crowdsale contract will be closed on Dec. 24th GMT / Dec. 23rd PST, at which point tokens will become transferable. The $20M cap was reached within 90 minutes.
As BRD prepares to rapidly expand into all aspects of global finance, we are launching the first-ever wallet-based rewards program, built around the BRD token.
BRD tokens will unlock a long list of perks for users of the BRD platform. Token holders will enjoy discounts, sequential tiers of complementary or exclusive access to premium features, and full white glove service for our most elite customers.
Tokens can be earned through various promotions, such as giveaways, opt-in surveys, or even automatic airdrops for frequent users. BRD tokens exist on the Ethereum network as a standard ERC-20 token, which means access to these perks can be freely bought, sold, or transferred independent of the BRD platform.
