CasperLabs has closed a $14M private sale with an eye towards Casper mainnet launch in Q1 2021.
Today, we are excited to let our community know that we have closed our $14M USD private validator token sale led by crypto fund Digital Strategies. The private token sale included participation from ZB.com/ZB Global, Gate.io, Consensus Capital, Cluster Capital, HashKey Capital, AU21 Capital, Blockchange Ventures, GSR, QCP/QSN, RockTree Capital, Stake.Fish, Chain Capital, Sora Capital, Wavemaker, Ropart Asset Management, Waterdrip Capital, AGE Fund, Woodstock Fund, Oasis Capital, and dozens of other funds and individuals.
This announcement comes with an eye towards two critical upcoming milestones for the Casper Network. First, the Casper Delta testnet will go live this month and will be our final testnet. Second, the Casper Network mainnet launch will happen Q1 2021, and will be accompanied by a public sale of Casper’s native token.* Registration for updates and information about the public token sale is available on our website.
We are grateful for and humbled by the support, innovation, and excitement we’ve received from leaders across the blockchain ecosystem. This achievement for our team brings us one step closer to launching Casper, the most advanced and easiest to use public blockchain in the world.
If you’re new to CasperLabs, we are the team behind the Capser Network, a proof of stake public blockchain optimized for easy developer onboarding, smart contracts performance, and enterprise integration. The fundamentals behind Casper were born from the early Ethereum Foundation researchers' original correct-by-construction (CBC) Casper work. In March, we launched our first public incentivized testnet Zug500 and are working towards mainnet launch in Q1 2021, which will be the first provably live and safe version of the CBC Casper consensus protocol.
Join us and build on Casper.
